      When a vendor is registering can I make “Shop name” part not required and not mandatory or maybe even not to be asked at all? Or is that something that is fundamental to the plugin?

      You can “uncheck” the checkbox that says “display sold by” in your marketplace settings and that will remove the store name and store slug from the registration form.

      It also removed these elements from the Vendors shop settings so they can’t change their store name or slug.
