With the add-on Product Tags installed and enabled, it is possible to use product tags in X-Cart Marketplace. The add-on allows the store staff (administrator, vendors) to attach custom tags to products so shoppers can find them easier.

Product Tags: Administrator Experience

The store administrator configures the add-on settings and determines to which extent vendor users should be able to manage product tags.

The add-on settings page provides the "Allow vendors to create new tags" toggle. By default, it is disabled, which means that product tags can be added, edited, and deleted only by the store administrator. In contrast, vendors can only use the already existing tags created by the administrator. If the administrator enables the "Allow vendors to create new tags" option, vendors will have full product tag management capabilities. They will be able to add their tags for products and edit and delete any existing tags (including the ones created by the other users).

The store administrator can view and manage all product tags in the store via the Tags section (Catalog > Tags) in the Admin area. They can also assign existing tags to their products and any vendor's products, should a vendor request their assistance. For more info on managing product tags as an administrator, see the Product Tags manual.

Product Tags: Vendor Experience

Depending on the store settings, vendors will have limited or full product tag management capabilities.

Limited product tag management capabilities mean that vendors cannot create new product tags or edit/delete the existing ones. Still, they can assign tags created by the store administrator to their products via the Tags field on the Info tab of product details and search for products by tags.

Full product tag management capabilities mean that vendors have the Tags section in their Vendor area (Catalog > Tags) - similar to the one used by the administrator.

Via this section, they can add their tags for products and edit and delete any existing tags (including the ones created by other users). They can assign tags to their products via the Tags field on the Info tab of product details (using tags created by themselves or by other users) or search for products by tags.
