What is the difference between vendor subscriptions and monthly fee?

The Vendor Monthly Fee is not the same as the subscriptions Feature. If you enable the "monthly fee" option it does not create a subscription and there is no limit on how many products the vendor can publish. Furthermore super admin will need to manually invoice the vendor every month with the fee. In vendor statistics you can view a report how much each vendor owes to the mall owner.
With the "subscriptions" option enabled a subscription will be created when the vendor registers to the mall and he will get a warning in his admin area when payment is due. Additionally super admin can setup subscriptions defining how many products a vendor can publish with each subscription option.
* You can use both a "monthly fee" or a "percentage" per sale among with subscriptions.
* You cannot use a "monthly fee" and a "percentage" per sale. You will need to decide for one of the two.
