Vendors

The Vendor is a user registered with CopeCart who creates and sells products. The Vendor is a product owner who manages and configures all product details such as product name, description, price, and payment information. The Vendor decides whether it is possible to cooperate with affiliates or other Vendors in selling a product, and determines the share that will be paid to the Affiliate or other Vendor.

The Vendor can sell its own products as well as products of other Vendors. In other words, the Vendor Account allows the user to function as a vendor and an affiliate at the same time.

JVP (Joint Venture Partner)

Joint Venture Partner is a user registered with CopeCart as a Vendor. A Joint Venture Partner contributes to another Vendor's product by developing, testing, and/or promoting it. Essentially, a Joint Venture Partnership is a collaboration between two or more Vendors on a product.

For example, you're developing a piece of software, but you're missing some skills. So you ask another vendor to help you. That vendor then becomes your joint venture partner, and the revenue is split between the two of you.

How the revenue is split between all JVPs can be found here: JVP at CopeCart

  • Can I create my own products and sell other vendors' products?

With a vendor account, you can.

With an affiliate account, you can only sell other vendors' products.

  • Can an affiliate be a JVP?

Affiliates and Vendors can be JVP's.

Unfortunately, if you have an affiliate account, it is not possible to view your JVP sales in your dashboard. So that you can still see your sales, proceed as follows:

1.Go to your account settings

2. Go to "Account Type

3. Select "Vendor" and confirm with the green save button in the upper right corner.

4. You can now view your JVP sales in the transactions.

5. Then directly change the account type to "Affiliate" again and save this with the green save button.


Affiliates

An affiliate is a user registered with CopeCart who sells products of other people (Vendors) and receives a fixed commission for it. In other words, an Affiliate is an employee who promotes the Vendor's products and sells them through a special link.

NB: If the product is not purchased through the corresponding affiliate link, an affiliate does not receive affiliate commission.

In order to sell products of other Vendors, the Affiliate should send a request for cooperation to a Vendor. If the request has been confirmed, the affiliate will receive a corresponding fee each time the product is purchased through that affiliate's link. If the request has been denied, no affiliate link can be provided, so the affiliate will not be able to promote and sell the product.

Logisticians

Logisticians are affiliates with advanced privileges. They are a special group of users set up to maintain and track all shipping activities.

The Affiliate becomes a Logistician when a Vendor adds them as a Logistician. The Affiliate cannot request logistic rights.

How to add a logistician is described here: Logistician CopeCart

  • Can a user with the vendor account become a logistician?

No. Only an affiliate account allows becoming a logistician.

  • Can a registered user be an affiliate for one vendor and a logistician for another?

Yes. Logistics permissions are valid only for one cooperation between vendor and affiliate. For all other vendors, exactly this affiliate will be only one affiliate.

  • Can an affiliate create his own products?

No. Only Vendors can create the products.

Sellers

Sellers, or distributors, are affiliates with advanced permissions. They are a special group of users created to sell products through the Phone Quote feature.

  • Can a user with the Vendor account become a seller?

No. Only an affiliate account allows becoming a vendor.
