Vendor Statuses

Vendors can have one of the following statuses:

  • New—when a customer applies for a vendor account, the newly-created vendor gets this status. The administrator can either approve, or reject the application by changing the vendor’s status.


Once you change a vendor’s status, you can’t set it back to New.

  • Active—vendor’s administrators can work in the administration panel of the store. The products of an active vendor appear in the store, unless they require prior approval.


When the administrator creates a vendor, the status of that vendor is set to Active.

  • Disabled—vendor’s products won’t appear in the store, and vendor’s administrators won’t be able to log in to the Administration panel.
  • Pending—vendor’s administrators can work in the Administration panel of the store, but the vendor’s products don’t appear in the store.
You can change a vendor's status in Multi-Vendor administration panel at any time.
