The “switch” from WC Vendors free to Pro is quite simple.
Keep WC Vendors free and all settings and pages EXACTLY as they are. Keep it installed and active. (you run both plugins)
Purchase and download Pro. Upload it to wordpress. Activate.
Configure a few settings.
All of your information, customers, vendors, products, user_meta, — everything form free transfers to Pro. You just have a few extra settings to configure when you activate Pro. The vendors will have a few extra settings also to fill out.
Yeah I need to get to work on a Free vs Pro comparison, for sure. Thanks for the reminder 😉
Here is a list (not complete..) of some of the features in Pro:
With Pro, you get:
– Front end forms & management so vendors do NOT need to use the wp back end at all.
-Pro Dashboard with vendors sales reports
-Fully featured front-end product add/edit capabilities
-Feedback system for Vendor Ratings
-Shipment Tracking for Vendors to enter tracking numbers
-Vendor Shipping so vendors can enter flat rates for national/shipping, or country/state table rate shipping and receive the shipping fees from each sale. WooCommerce Per Product Shipping plugin is no longer needed, as shipping funds are allocated correctly per product to the vendor. Shipping rates can be overridden on a per product basis.
-Multiple commission types such as percentage, percentage + fee, fixed fee, and even fixed fee + fee. These can be overridden on a per vendor basis by Admin.
-Vendor-Only coupons that vendors can create to make their own coupons for only their products
-Vendor store banners, avatars/icons and extra information
-Social module for adding facebook/twitter/google+ and many more
-Vacation Mode , So your vendors can go away for a while and not worry about losing sales
-Extended Order Notes
– Template system so you have the ability to configure and style your store and dashboard
MORE TO COME including WooThemes Bookings support, integration with even more Woo plugins, and features requested by users of WC Vendors and WC Vendors Pro. Pro will always be continually updated with new features
Pro is WELL worth the small investment.
