Becoming a Vendor
Welcome to THE PLAN CAVE Vendor Dashboard! A dynamic and always-up-to-date overview of how your store is performing. You can change the start/end dates at the top to get all your store’s sales results. Showing you # of orders, total products sold, commissions owed, and commissions paid is at the top. The Order Totals is a bar chart, and on the screenshot below we only show orders for one day. However, it will populate orders over the reporting period chosen. The Product Totals give you a quick overview of the percentage of sales each product brings to your store’s total revenue. Hover over a slice of the pie with your mouse for the name of the product that slice represents.
…is all done on the Products tab. Click it and you will see all the products your store has listed on the site, their publishing status, price, categories and tags. Hover over a product to edit, delete or view it.
Adding a product is really easy. It’s the same for editing a product. Simply edit a product or click ‘Add Product’ at the top/bottom of the Products tab.
Viewing Your Orders
Clicking on ‘Orders’ brings you to your ‘Orders View’ where you can see all the orders that customers have placed for your items. You can add message which will then send an email to the customer, dont forget to add your tracking numbers, mark your orders as shipped and also print a packing slip.
The email the customer receives will look similar to this.
Ratings / Feedback
Customers can leave you 1 to 5 stars for your products by visiting their ‘My Account’ page and by clicking Leave Feedback. They can edit/update the feedback at any time so that way if you get a poor review you can work with the customer to make their experience better and perhaps they will update their rating!
As a vendor, you can create coupons specifically for your own products. These coupons will not work on any other products except for those in your store. You can include only certain products, include all of your products, or even include all and exclude others, or even choose by category! It can be a percentage discount, or a flat dollar price reduction.
…and these are really important ones such as your store name, description, social media links, phone number, pixles, and avatar/icons.
Banner images should be 1140 x 190.
All of these settings impact how your store looks to the world.
That’s it! You’re now ready to sell on The Plan Cave.
