ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Payment Settings

Your payment settings are required so that we can pay your fee from the products / services that customers have ordered from you. We use the globaly trusted STRIPE payment system (www.stripe.com) to manage payments from customers to vendors.

To receive payments from customers, you will need to create your own Stripe Account.  This is simple to do and can be setup here: www.stripe.com .

Occasionally, we may allow customers to pay by bank transfer. In this case, payments will be made to your bank account also via the Stripe payment gateway.

Note: We are currently integrating Stripe into our multi-vendor platform and this should be completed by 24.04.2018. 

 

VENDOR PRODUCT(S) EDITING

Your user credentials (username and password) will allow you to customise the Standard Product Templates that we have installed on your Vendor dashboard. You will find these products on the Products Tab on your vendor dashboard home page.  In your vendor dashboard home page, you will be able to customise & select / deselect the products, product conditions (attributes & values) and product pricing.

We have added a default image for your products. After you have uploaded your vendor logo, we will use this logo as your default product image for all of your products.

Once you have updated and customised your products, the products will have the product status – ”pending review”.  Gorelocate admin will review your changes and either;

  • Ask for clarification on some information, or
  • Approve your products and change the product(s) status to – “published”

Help: You can find step by step instructions to edit products at: http://gorelocate.biz/product-editing-instructions/

You are free to change the pricing and products at any time, as many times as you wish. You may wish to change the pricing on certain products & services for many reasons such as seasonality, demand, resources, introductory offers etc. This is your choice.
