1. You can see the vendor registration (subscription) at
You can setup subscriptions at
The process to manage subscriptions is straight forward. You create the subscriptions and vendors will need to choose a subscription when they register.
They will then be forwarded to paypal to pay and when they return back to the store they will be able to login to their vendor account if you do not setup the vendors not to be auto approved.
Yes, there is a dashboard for the super admin to view all subscriptions. There is also an indication if a subscription was not paid/renewed.
Please note that vendors will be prompt when they try login to pay the subscription if expired. If they do not pay they will not be able to access their dashboard.
Yes, users can become vendors and vendors can use their vendor account to buy items using the same account. Its also possible, if they want, to use different details for their vendor and user account.
If someone wants to become a vendor he can use the vendor registration form and use the same account to buy items from the store. A user can use the user registration form to register
If the user at some point decides to become a vendor he can do it simply by using the link (sell your products).
In a few words the registration process could be separate and not.
2. Vendors will be forwarded to paypal.com to pay the vendor subscription fee. To receive the money for their sales they will need to add their paypal account to their payment settings.
As for the payments each order is marked with the status "Payment Received". The status is visible to both the vendor and the super admin.
For the payments I suggest that you use paypal adaptive payments. This is the safest and hassle free option.
The reason is that when a user orders items from multiple vendors each vendor receives the money with one payment. The user does not have to pay each vendor individually.
Additionally if the store owner collects commission the commission will be deducted from each vendor's sale and will be paid to the store owner's paypal account.
Paypal adaptive has 3 options. Parallel, Chained and Chained delayed.
