Step 5: Assign Products By Seller in Own Product-List

In the above step; we have seen how the admin can assign products to any of the sellers. But here we will tell you without any taking help from the admin how seller can add the product in their own product list.

  1. The seller will go to the given URL given by admin.

  2. He will enter his own credentials like his own mail-id & password created by admin.

3. Click on Store Catalog-> All Products. The seller can choose the products from the catalog list. Here a seller can see all the products which are on the admin seller dashboard.

4. Search the product from the catalog list & click on Bulk Add To Sell button.

Step 6: Update Quantity of Products By Supplier

Once a supplier added a product in his product list; the next action he will take i.e update of quantity. The default quantity assigned to supplier is 0. The supplier can add the quantity by clicking on the Edit Quantity button.

Here I am going to add a quantity 2. But before going to add a quantity by supplier. Do we know the current quantity of the product? Don't worry! I am telling you. The current quantity of the product is 8.

After adding quantity 2 by the supplier. The current quantity for the supplier is 2. And for seller admin: The quantity will be 10.

Total Quantity for Supplier- 2

Total Quantity Available for Admin Default Seller - 10

Step 7: Update Quantity of Products By Admin

You have to remember the admin will do all the changes from his own CommerceUp dashboard. Don't confuse in this part. We have one admin & one seller here with different login credentials. In the same way; there can be multiple sellers of the same products.

There are two ways through which an admin can update the quantity of his products

  1. Manually

  2. Via CSV

Will start with the Manual way:

  1. Click on the Catalog->Product Inventory.

In this tab- You can view the total quantity of admin not seller. As we already know the quantity of default admin seller is 8 for the product Vanilla.

If the admin seller wants to change the quantity of the products, he/she can do this from here.

Here I am changing the quantity from 8 to 9 by clicking on the Edit Quantity button.

Now check the changed quantity in the Product Inventory tab.

Check your inventory in the Master Inventory means in the Product Catalog. The total quantity of Vanilla product is 11 here. The quantity of the admin seller is 9. And the rest quantity of the seller is 2.

2. Update Quantity via CSV by Admin

a) Click on Catalog-> Product Inventory-> Import Products(Qty).

Step 8: Add Quantity in Bulk by Supplier

3. And after uploading CSV; click on the Send to Owner button. CSV will send to the admin via mail.

If an order is placed by the customer. It will come first in the Order tab of the admin Commerceup dashboard. Suppose a customer placed an order of product Vanilla. And the supplier of this product is Admin & supplier itself. So two suppliers are there admin & supplier Divya. In this way, multiple suppliers can be there.

a) What will admin do when an order comes?

Ans. Orders will assign automatically to their respective suppliers when any orders come from the customer side.

b) How admin can view the assigned supplier of an order?

Ans. The admin will click on the Orders Tab. And in Order Listing Page the admin will click on the View Seller Tab.
