A vendor can register on the merchant landing page and you don’t have to do anything at all. But sometime you may want to add a vendor from the back office and you can do it! To create a new vendor just have to provide some basic information and the system will send an email with instructions to the vendor to complete the registration. Of course, you have full control to manage vendors from your admin panel.
You can offer a trial period with your subscription plans and also can set if a vendor needs to add a card on the time of registration.
If you offer a trial period and required card upfront is enabled then the merchant will be charged as soon as the trial expires. Otherwise, the subscription will be deemed and all listings from the vendor will disappear from the marketplace.
If the vendor is on trial, then you will see the Trailing flag next to their name. If the vendor doesn’t have a card linked on his/her account then the trial will be called generic trial and a On generic trial flag will be shown next to their name.
