Published by WP Doctor on

A registration form is the most important part of a website. Now when it is about a Multivendor marketplace that time you may need to register two type of users like as customer and vendor. Most of the Multivendor plugin for WordPress is using WooCommerce my-account page to register vendor and customer.

When a visitor is coming on the WooCommerce my-account page, he/she is getting both registration option for a customer or vendor which is not really bad. But each marketplace does not have the same way to operate the website. So, they need a separate registration for the customer and vendor. Because A customer should not take a load of a vendor registration form field while he is not registering as a vendor.

Today, I will discuss about one of the best multivendor marketplace plugin called “Dokan Multivendor Marketplace“. If you do not know about Dokan then read my post here.
