Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Different Roles (User and Product Suppliers)?

    Hello,
    I try to set up a homepage which offers products, but unlike the normal usecase of woocommerce the products should not be uploaded by myself only. Dedicated “product suppliers” should be able to upload their products without having access to the admin wordpress page. These product suppliers should be able to login to my homepage and use a simple web-frontend to create products.
    Is that possible with woocommerce?
    Thanks

    Hi, @teambot!

    > Is that possible with woocommerce?

    Good question! Core alone, no, unfortunately!

    Product vendors, however, will get you to where you’d like to be, even though it doesn’t have front-end submissions feature.

    Vendors will, though, only have access to a heavily locked down version of the WP-Admin which only lets them deal with their own business as seen in this screenshot:

    You should also be able to use something like https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/ to further limit things.

    Cheers!

    Hi @rynald0s,

    thanks for the answer. It was not the solution I was hoping for, but maybe I can still work with that.
    The products which will be offered by the suppliers are all similar. So I would strongly restrict what data they can enter. There will be given categories with fixed drop down menues to make it as easy as possible. Is there a way to accomplish that? The product adding process which I see now in woocommerce with its many possibilites is far to complex.

    Cheers

    @teambot,

    If you’re not interested in using the Product Vendors extension that @rynald0s mentioned. You’re more than welcome to seek out 3rd party alternatives that meet your needs.

    @teambot,

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.
