Thanks, I’ll give it a test.
I assume I can also create products via the standard WooCommerce interface rather than the Vendor Dashboard? ie do everything ‘back end’? I just want to be able to duplicate products, switch out the images and descriptions, then assign a vendor. Once all set up, switch the vendor email address to their actual and they’re ready to go.
Now I can use the Members masonry/list to display my vendors alongside other members:
Or via a menu just display vendors of a certain type:
And I can stop stressing about how to style the vendor list!
Hmm getting closer – showing up correctly on vendor profiles only – but no URL linked, just text.
Appreciate your help, totally realise this is outside the realms of ‘it’s broken’ support 🙂
Thanks, Anna! So this will work using the WC Vendors Pro ‘vendor’ classification, rather than custom member types? Rather than calling all of my vendors ‘Vendors’ I’m sub-classifying into types of vendor, which is why the colour highlight will be useful. Ultimately I’m looking to use this approach to replace the current ‘store list’ which is a bit clunky and needs a lot of re-styling, whereas using a list ‘BuddyPress’ style fits in better with the rest of the site.
I’ll give this a go and report back.July 19, 2017 at 9:21 pm in reply to: Flat rate per vendor – product # override not working #70375
Correct – I want a flat rate per vendor, irrespective of # or types of products ordered, or vendor or shopper location.
Order from one vendor – shipping = $13
Order from two vendors – shipping = $26
Order from three vendors – shipping = $36
Many thanks for following up.

After a bit of testing, yes it does seem that if set at the vendor level through the dashboard, the flat rate works as it should. Multiple product variants, multiple different products … flat rate stays the same.
I’m still not completely sure which settings are required from that list, I just put the flat rate in all of them and tick any box that limits the shipping cost! But the fact it works is good.
At minimum I can now proceed with finalising launch and either instruct vendors or manually access their dashboard for them to set it up. Obviously the ideal would be for the admin function to work as it should …
Thanks for following up
Wow that note doesn’t appear to be UK specific – seems like Paypal may be withdrawing Adaptive Payments altogether. Looks like Stripe might become the only option …
I didn’t realise this either. Surely the order note is 99% of the time about shipping, so the vendor should be able to see it??July 6, 2017 at 9:32 pm in reply to: A few pre-sales questions re: shipping, comission and order mgt #69624
Ah, thanks. Figured it out. I had disabled ‘Vendor Shipping’ thinking it just removed the options from the Dashboard. Now I re-enabled it I see the options under WooCommerce.
Realise now I should just disable Shipping in the Settings Form tab.
All good, thanksJuly 6, 2017 at 2:39 am in reply to: A few pre-sales questions re: shipping, comission and order mgt #69556
I may have misunderstood your last response, but I can’t see any way to change the Shipping settings to a flat rate setup (as below) from the admin side, only in the Vendor Dashboard. Am I missing something, or is this approach really only possible if each Vendor applies the settings themselves?
To re-clarify – I want to set this up as a rule across all vendors, all products, all states. I don’t want the vendors to have anything to do with shipping rates/approaches.
Can you help me to set this as default?
As is always the case – submit a ‘ticket’ and 2 minutes later figure it out yourself. Turns out I had the Stripe gateway activated, not Stripe Connect. Button now appears on the Dashboard as it should!
As a side/follow up question … if I want Stripe to handle ALL vendor commissions, is it possible to remove the Paypal details and the text saying “Your PayPal address is used to send you your commission.” ?
Again seem to have answered my own question: https://www.wcvendors.com/help/topic/stripe-paypal-confusion/ *rolleyes*
It appears that this plugin is undergoing something of a transformation. The features they list as being available in the FREE version are now suddenly only available in Pro, at a cost of $199 (promo discount of 50% so $99). It was nifty to add the dashboard to the buddypress profile but without the ability to add products (a PRO feature now), fairly useless.
Even if I was willing to pay the $99 I wouldn’t until it’s been tested and proven some more as everything seems to be in a bit of a mess.
So learning for others looking at this, don’t be fooled by the ‘FREE’ option. It’s a $99-$199 plugin that only adds a little ‘slickness’ to the process.June 28, 2017 at 9:31 pm in reply to: A few pre-sales questions re: shipping, comission and order mgt #69130
Actually as a follow up … can I set those default flat fee shipping rules from the admin side and disable shipping options for the vendor? Otherwise I’ll need to instruct every vendor to enter the details exactly as above.June 28, 2017 at 8:05 pm in reply to: A few pre-sales questions re: shipping, comission and order mgt #69127
Brilliant, thanks for the confirmation. It’s been one of those annoying little things that will probably only be required 1 in 100 orders (I expect the vast majority of orders will be for one vendor), but it helps massively to have the option. The only other solution I could find was cs-cart which is obviously much much more expensive ($1450) and from what I can see nowhere near as customisable.
Now to decide on a theme and get cracking.
