What is a WooCommerce vendor?
A Woocommerce Vendor is a user who is able to sell through your store.
This refers specifically to the Woocommerce Product Vendor’s extension, which allows you to turn your store into an online marketplace, where either anyone can register and sell their products, or select groups of people can apply to sell through your store.
Multi vendor marketplaces
Another way of referring to these sorts of marketplaces, is as multi vendor marketplaces, which is how they are typically described.
Multi vendor marketplaces are fully managed marketplaces where everything is managed via the WordPress CMS.
Users can visit your website, signup using built in signup pages, create profile, upload products, set prices and start selling.
As the marketplace owner, you can set and determine how your marketplace works, including the commisison level for any Woocommerce vendor, or you can set this globally.
