    Hello team!

    I have setup a site with WooCommerce Bookings, WC Vendors Pro and BuddyBoss Marketplace theme. I had a few questions.

    1. When vendors are registering, is there a way to add a field where I can use Google Maps to capture their address which I can then use for customers to search for vendors/items by location? Does that make sense? I’m not sure if we are able to edit registration fields, let alone how.

    2. I have managed to only enable :Bookable Product” under product type, which is all we need. Is there any way to hide “Has persons” and “Has resources”?

    3. In our workflow, we need to allow vendors to have a refundable security deposit with each bookable item (in case item is lost/stolen/damaged). I don’t know how to do this but did come across (https://woocommerce.com/products/force-sells/) which I think will allow me to add “Refundable Security Deposit” as a product with each item. However, I noticed that I don’t get this option under “Linked Products”. I do need this option so that vendors can use it to add “Refundable Security Deposits” when adding an item and force it into the cart.

    4. Refunds – Are backend admins the only people who can issue refunds? Is this a manual process, that is, vendor contacts admin, admin issues refund?

    Thanks for your help.

    Sri,
    1. We do not have this built-in.. however, you may want to check out these plugins:

    https://codecanyon.net/item/wcvendors-store-filter/19664812?ref=kas5986

    2. There is not yet a filter for this; so you can remove this with css. Not ideal.. but this should do it:

    li.show_if_booking {
    display: none!important;
    }

    3. I am not certain how to work with the deposits and vendors/commission.
    I have heard a few requests for this, so I will add it to our enhancement requests for the Bookings integration and see if we can come up with something int he future for deposits.

    4. Refunds are handled via the payment processor. Yes- they are manual.

    Hi Anna,

    Thanks for getting back to me and the feedback/comments to my questions.

    1. I’ve had this on my list, just wanted to know if it was possible without an external plugin.

    2. I might leave this alone.

    3. Not sure if you missed my question about “Force sells” no appearing under “Linked Products” option. I think it would be great if @Ben & team can work on something that’ll help folks like me when it comes to “Refundable Deposits”.

    4. That’s what I thought.

    Thanks again Anna!

    Hi Anna,

    I have another question.

    Does WC Vendor Pro only show standard WooCommerce fields in the product form or can it also show other fields added by third party plugins?

    Reason I ask is because I need to add a location entry to the booking items in my multi vendor store so that the items can be searched by location by end users. I used Geo my WP plugin to add “Location” to WooCommerce products BUT when I add a product through the Pro Dashboard, this field does not appear anywhere. I also mentioned “Force Sells” in my previous message, which is I think the same issue as I am describing right now.

    Any insight is appreciated. My client would like the products to be searched for by location but I am dead in the water at the moment 🙁

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    I went back and re-read that… however I do not understand what you mean by force sells.
    What doe snot appear?
    Is this something from a third=party plugin?
    Sorry I am just not following you.. if you could explain a bit further or differently, because I do not know what you mean by force sells.
    Thank you

    Hi Anna,

    Force Sells is an extension for WooCommerce by WooCommerce – https://woocommerce.com/products/force-sells/

    I was going to use what this extension provides to allow vendors to add “Security Deposit” as a product so that they can then link it to their other items using Force Sell.

    I purchased the extension and enabled it and while it shows up in when adding products through WooCommerce, it does not show up when Vendors are adding a new product through the dashboard, hence my question.

    Thanks.

    Ok- thank you- I understand now.
    If the vendors can use those tools in the wp admin when adding a product, then the fields can be added to the front end forms.
    If they cannot get them to work properly in the wp admin, then further integration is needed.

    Here is an example of how you can add the fields from another plugin to our front end forms:
    https://www.wcvendors.com/kb/adding-a-custom-field-for-products/

    In addition, you can download the free Simple Auctions Integration, and take a look at how we added in those fields to our front end forms for Pro:
    https://www.wcvendors.com/product/woocommerce-simple-auctions-integration/

    A bit of work; but if they can be used in the admin by vendors, then they can be used in the front end forms for pro as well, the fields just need to be added to our forms. 🙂

    I have been looking at THIS for possible refundable deposits. Not sure how this would really work with vendors nor the WCVendors Stripe plugin. Maybe @digitalchild could reach out to the plugin dev because I am sure this functionality is on a lot of rental marketplace’s wish list. Then problem with vendors not being able to initiate a refund from woocommerce themselves would likely still be an issue, but the dev for that plugin states if the payment gateway supports refunds then it will work. Maybe they could help on this front as well.

    As for your geolocation question:

    WP-GEOMETA for ACF adds geospatial leaflet input fields that store geojson in a linked table which allows for geospatial sql queries. Use the tutorials in these forums to add the acf field to the vendor’s settings form. Then use ACF’s acf/save_post hook to update the vendor’s products with the store’s geojson meta data upon creation/update. From there you can use geospatial sql queries to filter the products by the end user’s location.

    Good Luck

    Thank you Chris for your reply and explanation.

    If someone could integrate refundable security deposits, that would be awesome.

    What you have explained with regards to geolocation makes sense but making sense and being able to do it are two different things. I’m not saying I couldn’t but I know it would take me a longer time than someone who understands coding a lot more than I do.

    Thanks again!

    I’ve added this to the list of integration possibilities. We’ll be going over some projects in the near future, and I will make sure that this is researched as a potential integration (or something LIKE this- maybe not this particular plugin, but a deposit system of some kind).
    Thank you!
