Create a product from Vendor dashboard
Navigate to vendor dashboard. Click on Products from the left menu and then Add New Products button from the top right corner. It will open a new window where you will be able to create a new product very easily with providing the most important details only.
The common information about a product are the title, price, description. Discount price is optional. You can even schedule discounts for a certain amount of time. You can enter a starting date and end date to apply automatic discounts to your product.
Both the categories and tags have to be created by the admin. The vendor can only select them from the frontend dashboard. Because allowing the vendors to create categories and tags might result into duplicates.
By default, category selection is singular. That is why there is a dropdown field to select a category. This should be the standard setting. Because according to Google Webmaster Guidelines and other SEO and UX best practices, it is recommended to have only one category assigned to a product. If you need to show your products based on multiple factors or for searching or sorting feature, you can use tags.
If you really need multiple categories in a single product, then it can be enabled from wp-admin → Dokan → Settings → Selling Options → Category Selection
As there can be thousands of tags in a site, we have placed a searching feature on the tags field. Let’s say you need to add a tag named “wood”. So if you type 3 or more characters, the tag will appear below just like Google search. So only typing “woo” will bring “Wood” you can hit the down arrow ↓ on the keyboard or click on the result to add that in the field.
After You have provided all the required information, Click on the Create product button. It will create the product and redirect you to the product edit page, where you will be able to add more information about your product. If you want to create the product and add another one immediately, click on the Create & add new button.
After you have been redirected to the product edit page, there is a option to select product type. You can select either Simple or Variable product.
