1. Create different marketplace membership plans

2. Configure membership plans based on commissions

And thanks to WC Vendors Pro, you can use any of the following commission types:

  • Fixed
  • Fixed and fee
  • Percentage
  • Percentage and fee
  • Sales by Vendor
  • Sales by Product
  • Product Price

All this allows you to create one of the most advanced commission systems for any marketplace plugin today.

3. Set various limits

With every plan, you can set limits on a range of options, including how many products and what product types a vendor can publish for that plan.

For example, the plan below allows vendors to publish up to 100 products on their online store. In addition, it lets them sell accessories, hoodies, and T-shirts only.

As you can see, the plan above also lets vendors upload no more than 2,000 files and use up to 1,000 MB of disk space.

This means WC Vendors Membership also allows you to set different file and storage limits for each plan. Therefore, it encourages vendors to upload relevant media only, which can keep your hosting clean and in order.

Our marketplace membership plugin lets you set the following limits:

  • Subscription price
  • Subscription expiry
  • Signup fee
  • Product limit
  • Commission type
  • Disk usage limit
  • File count limit
  • Allowed categories

4. Offer vendors easy-to-use subscriptions

WC Vendors Membership makes it easy for marketplace owners to create subscriptions. However, vendors will also find these subscriptions easy to use.

For starters, a vendor can select their preferred plan during sign-up or from the settings page. Then, once they’ve already subscribed to a plan, they can see when it will be renewed or if it has been canceled. Furthermore, they can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel their plans.

Our marketplace membership extension also allows marketplace owners to enjoy a good degree of automation. For example, when a vendor exceeds their product limit, the system automatically disables their ability to create new products.

Marketplace membership plans are only available to vendors; they aren’t visible to customers.
