Variable Product

Brief Introduction #

Variable products are a product type in WooCommerce that lets you offer a set of variations on a product, with control over prices, stock, image and more for each variation. They can be used for a product like a shirt, where you can offer a large, medium and small and in different colors.

Enable Product Capabilities to vendors #

Admin can approve or disapprove the vendors from accessing certain product types from our module section. With only MultiVendorX installed, vendors can upload Simple products from their frontend dashboard while others are to be uploaded from the backend. But with MultivendorX Pro installed, vendors can upload Variable, Grouped, External, Affiliate easily. Booking, Accommodation, Bundles, Rental, Auction, Simple Subscription and Variable Subscription are also supported from their frontend dashboard.
Enable the Marketplace Types checkboxes, to allow your vendors to upload the respective product types from their frontend.

Add products #

Adding a product is a breather for vendors with MultiVendorX Pro.
To add a product, vendors need to go to the “Product Manager” tab & select “Add Product” from the sub-menu in vendor dashboard. This will direct the vendor to the Add Product Page where they can choose from Simple, Variable, External/, Affiliate product types.

After choosing the product type, vendors can provide the required product information in their specific fields.

Add variable products using MultiVendorX Pro

Note: Simple Product Type is supported by MultivendorX itself. If the vendors want to move beyond these product types, admin must install the respective product type plugins and allow them to create, manage and sell Bookable Product, Subscription, Rental, and Auction product types from their store.
