    1. New orders can only show up in the ‘vendor dashboard’ if the ‘processing’ status is clicked by the admin in the WC backend. Is there any way that the system can automatically show the order for the vendor at the ‘vendor dashboard’?

    2. The vendor can only either ‘view’ or ‘mark shipped’ of the order they can see. is it possible that the vendor can have one more order status function such as ‘ order confirmed’ status they can click?

    Thank you for your help and patience!

    Hi Stephen,

    Orders will show up on the Vendor Dashboard when “processing” or “completed”. Processing means order paid for. Completed means order paid for and shipped. For a vendor marketplace, that’s basically the same thing.

    If you wanted to add custom order statuses, you’d have to code the custom order statuses and then code them into WC Vendors using the “wcvendors_completed_statuses” filter which you see here:


    and here:


    So it’s a fair amount of work, that’s for sure, but certainly, as with anything, anything can be done.
