Follow the process below to configure your marketplace using the Omnyfy Platform. Note that the configurations here may change depending on the nature of the marketplace that you are looking to create.


Vendor Configurations

The configurations below can be found in Store > Configurations > Omnyfy (or Omnymart) > Vendor Tab

1. Vendor Section

Qty Check Mode

Use Warehouse Only if the marketplace is running in a configuration where there are some vendors that are not selling products but still have Locations associated with the marketplace.

By default please set this to "All Location".

Products to Multiple Vendors

Determines if the same product can be assigned to multiple vendors on the marketplace

This configuration must be used in conjunction with "Qty Check Mode" if you are looking to create a marketplace where there are multiple store-fronts (Vendors) but they're all selling from the same pool of stock or inventory.

Admin actions across Vendors

Determines if the Administrator has the ability to assign products to Vendors

Default is "Yes" - leave this to Yes always.

Show Vendor bind link in header

Please leave as default for now

By default, this can be set to "No"

Invoice By

Allows the marketplace owner to choose if the invoice to the customer is by Vendor or by Marketplace.

Default is by Vendor. This sets the email to a split order email where each item is grouped by the Vendor from which the item was purchased and the Vendor's Tax Information is also displayed on the invoice.

If set to "Marketplace Owner" the customer will receive a consolidated invoice with the tax information being the Marketplace Owner's tax information that was set in General > Store Information Configuration
