To review the content of new product pages created by vendors in X-Cart Marketplace with the Multi-Vendor add-on enabled before such pages get published on the storefront, enable the Trusted/Non-Trusted Vendors add-on.
In a multi-vendor X-Cart marketplace with the Trusted/Non-Trusted Vendors add-on installed and active, the store administrator will be able to give individual vendors a trusted/non-trusted status. Trusted vendors will be able to add new products to the product catalog without moderation; non-trusted vendors will have to submit new products for approval by the store administrator before these products get published.
The store administrator will be notified of new products submitted for approval and will be able to either approve or decline the publication of the respective product pages. They will also be able to add a comment for the vendor regarding their decision.
The vendor will get an email notification about the administrator’s decision. If the administrator has chosen to provide a comment, the notification message will include it.
