    I was searching for best marketplace plugin and I think wc vendors is the right one. I’d like to purchase pro version but before I do that I want to know few more things:
    1. Does wc vendors support variable products? i.e. if vendor has few types of one product (different weight, size) can it be added?.
    2. I’ve already contacted with paypal and they said that there is possibility that customers pay directly to vendors via express method (not only adaptive payments) so is it possible to set this or any other method (parallel?) that wont require me to have business account? It is important that payments wont go through my account (and I don want any commission).
    BTW I heard that adaptive payment will be replaced (and turned off) by new marketplace payment till june 2016 by paypal.
    3. Does wc vendors is compatibile with other plugins i.e. SEO by Yoast, Display product?


    WC Vendors Support

    1.) WC Vendors Free supports variable products. WC Vendors Pro does not until mid-January when WooCommerce 2.5 comes out and Pro v1.2.0 is released alongside it.

    2.) Good luck with that. 😉 That’s not going to be a feature of any marketplace plugin because (despite what PayPal says) it is simply not possible to do within a multi vendor environment. You can use PayPal Adaptive Payments, and set commissions to 100% and on your paypalap app, specify that the vendor is the primary recipient, which will make them responsible for all fees and chargebacks and leave you out of it. No money goes to you, but you do need your PayPalAP account setup properly for this to actually work. And yea, we’ve heard that PayPal is retiring their classic API, but that doesnt mean they are turning everyone off, it just means they will be migrating to a new system over the next few years.

    3.) Yup.
