Overview

 

Often customers prefer to deal with certain sellers they trust and want to get up-to-date information about their products. And this is what the Follow Vendor add-on allows them to do. This functionality increases the customer traffic as well as their loyalty. The add-on is created for marketplaces and multi-vendor store owners.

 

The Follow Vendor add-on allows customers to choose the vendors they want to get notifications from. They will be notified when:

 

— vendor product is created;

— vendor product is back in stock;

— product review is created.

 

All a customer should do is to click on the Follow link on the product details page or Vendor products page. Once a customer becomes a vendor follower, the notifications are sent to the customer's registered email address.

 

Customers will be able to track the vendors they signed up for and their news in the store account. They just need to log in, click on the Follow link and have all the data at hand.
