Frequently Asked Questions
We currently support a minimum of WordPress 4.1 and WooCommerce 3.0. However we encourage you to test and run the most up-to-date versions of all your plugins and themes. This will ensure a smooth running business and reduce your chances of security and other problems.
We recommend that you use a dedicated WordPress hosting company. We do not recommend running an ecommerce business on a shared, cheap hosting plan. You must be using a minimum of PHP 5.6 however we recommend you use the latest your plugins support which in most cases is PHP 7.0 and above.
The main difference between WC Vendors and WC Vendors Pro is that pro provides a complete front end dashboard for your vendors. That allows your vendors to manage their orders, products, coupons and more. We also include a comprehensive shipping system for both flat rate and table rate shipping. For a full feature comparison please visit our comparison page here.
If you don’t renew your license then you are free to continue to use the last version that you downloaded. Your license provides access to updates, downloads and support. Once your license expires you can no longer download the product, access premium support or receive updates and bug fixes.
You can set the commission rate at the product level, the vendor level or globally for the entire marketplace. The pro version includes more options for charging commissions beyond the basic percentage system offered in free.
No we do not support WordPress MutliSite for either our Free or Paid plugin. We have no plans to support this feature so please do not ask.
WC Vendors and WC Vendors Pro are developed to work with any 100% compatible WooCommerce theme. This means that your theme implements full compatibility with WooCommerce. If your theme uses the optional woocommerce.php template file, your theme is not supported.
If you have purchased an annual license then your license will last for 12 months from the date of purchase. After which time you will loose access to all previous downloads, updates and premium support.
If you have purchased a lifetime license then your license is effectively for a lifetime. In the license system I have set this to 99 years, but that is more than a lifetime according to the average life span for a human.
This is really up to you. So long as your web hosting is designed and configured to handle a big traffic site. Then our products will also hold up. We have customers running very high traffic sites with thousands of products, vendors and orders.
As we provide a complete front end dashboard it isn’t possible to automatically provide support for all WooCommerce extensions. This will mean some custom programming will ned to be completed to integrate the plugin of choice with Pro. A lot of the times all that is required is adding the custom meta fields on the front end. For more complex integrations we are always looking to create new integrations for our users. Please check our extensions page to see what integrations we have available.
We are unable to provide support or customisation beyond the features and functions already built into WC Vendors. If you require further customisation such as changing anything within WC Vendors via actions or filters, then you will need to do this your self or hire a developer. We do however provide documentation on how to use our actions and filters with example code to get you started. If you can’t find what you are looking for please ask and we’ll be happy help.
No a lifetime license cannot be transferred to another party. A license is linked to the email that purchased the product. If you are doing development for a customer, please ensure that your customer buys the license.
No. Licenses are not transferable.
This has everything you need ‘out of the box’ Well worth going PRO right away as this has all the features you need to run a fully functional multi vendor platform. I had an issue (my fault, but didn’t realise at the time) Jamie personally looked into this for me ON A WEEKEND! and sorted my problem. So happy with the product and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend if your looking for an easy to use platform for not only you but for your vendors.
This plugin works just great!!! The support from the developers are super awesome. I had a small issue and was fixed in a really short time by their support team. If you are looking to use your site as a multi vendor marketplace don’t hesitate to use this plugin. Super efficient and even more easy to setup.
I’m with WC Vendor since first steps, years ago, and never thought to change this. Jamie and his team are doing a great job. BIG thanks to you!
Excellent plug-in and great service! They always help even when I get grumpy!
They have worked through every issue I have had with attention to detail and patience. The support I have received is second to none!
I started this journey of investigating and trialing various marketplace solutions - firstly looking for a cost effective option to get me started without breaking the bank, but still having features that would be attractive to merchants. Well I never imagined I would have so many headaches and frankly crappy things to deal with along the way with WC Marketplace in particular. So when I decided to go with WC Vendors and start afresh it was with some trepidation.... But now after completing the configuration (just about) and doing testing etc. I feel relieved and grateful that your solution does what it says on the tin. Most of all that the Stripe payment integration is so super simple to set up, WORKS from the get to and gives me confidence that I won't run into major issues with payments and the money side of things at least. So wanted to say thanks to your team for that and also providing support.
I’ve used many other multi-vendor plugins but this one stands tall. Awesome support and very well built.
Really thanks for such a great plugin. I have tried with all vendor plugins available for WP but none can’t match my requirements and few of them are too complex to setup. Finally I decided to go with “WC Vendors”, the best one. In one word it is Simple-Solid-Superb, best vendor plugin for WP-WC.
Best multi vendor plugin for WordPress
This is the best FREE multivendor plugin ever. All the other plugins are not free. This plugin is free and works amazing! Thank you guys
This plugin does exactly what it’s meant to do and it does it well. Also, we built an extension for the plugin and were having issues that we thought were related to WC Vendors. Turns out we were wrong, yet their developer worked with ours to find the issue and help us work through it anyway. Can’t beat that type of customer support. Thanks!!
