    Hi!

    There is a way to create a vendor(user) who has the capability to own more than one store? or a shop manager who can only manage and load products for only certain specific stores?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    – Sorry, this is not possible.

    or a shop manager who can only manage and load products for only certain specific stores?
    – This is possible using WCFM – Group & Staff addon (http://wclovers.com/product/woocommerce-frontend-manager-groups-staffs/)
    You have to create “Vendor Group” and assign “Group Manager”.

    Thank You

    Should this functionality also automatically filter the stores directory and make it show up only with the stores from the group they manage?
    I need a group manager that can manage their group of stores (as the manager) to also be able to see all of the normal stores in the whole stores directory list (as if they were just a normal user on the site)

    Is this possible?

    Hi,
    Thanks for getting in touch with us!
    The store page or store list page, or for that matter any other product archive page, has nothing to do with user roles. It’s same for everyone (default behavior) even the non logged in users.
    Managers can manage stores only from their dashboard.
    I hope this answers your question.
    Thank You!

    Hi Sushobhan, thank you for getting back in touch. The reason I ask is because we have the groups and staff addon and we found that the shortcode [wcfm_stores] lists on a page as the directory of all vendor stores, it shows all active stores UNLESS you are logged in on the site as a ‘Store Manager’ login in which case it is automatically filtering the store list to only show the stores that Manager login has access to.

    I can’t find a way to turn this off so a store manager can view the store directory with all the stores without having to add them as a manager to all the different groups available.

    Hi,
    Okay, so I was wrong 🙁
    Please use the following snippet to stop this behavior on store list page-

    add_filter( 'wcfm_allow_vendors_list', function( $allow_vendors = array(0) ) {
        if( wcfm_is_group_manager() && ! is_admin() && ! is_wcfm_page() ) {
            return array(0);
        }
        return $allow_vendors;
    }, 110 );

    Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php
    In case you do not have child theme then add code using this plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/code-snippets/
    Let me know how this goes.
    Thanks!
