PrestaShop Marketplace Seller Shipping Use Case
- After the installation of Marketplace Module, you can install the Marketplace Seller Shipping Module to let your sellers set their own shipping method and the shipping price too.
- Once the module is installed a new menu “Shipping Method” is added under the marketplace account menu. From here the seller can either create new shipping method and can edit the one’s that are added previously.
- As soon as the seller finishes the creation of a new shipping method, the request is sent to the admin. Till the time the admin approves the request, the status for the newly created shipping method is “pending” only.
- Once the admin approves it, the status changes to “active” on the frontend.
- Now the seller can use all the active shipping method with the products. When the seller will add any new product then can assign any of the shipping method to it.
- Seller can add the impact pricing on the basic shipping price added for the shipping method. The impact price is based on area, country and the state. The seller can edit and update the impact pricing from the shipping plan page, where all the shipping plans by the seller are listed.
- During the checkout, the buyer can choose from the shipping methods assigned to the products. The products price will change depending on the shipping method chosen by the buyer.
"This way the admin can let the seller decide their own shipping method."
