Managing merchants

Edit on GitHub

This topic describes how to manage merchant records.

To start working with merchants, go to Marketplace > Merchants.

Creating a merchant

To create a merchant:

  1. On the Overview of Merchants page, click Add Merchant in the top right corner of the page.
  2. On the Create Merchant page, enter a name of the merchant and click Save.

That’s it. Now you have the merchant created.

In a non-marketplace environment, the Merchant record is the record of the company which sells goods and is the only one in the system.

Editing a merchant

To edit a merchant:

  1. On the Overview of Merchants page, you click Edit in the Actions column for a specific merchant.
  2. On the Edit Merchant page, change the merchant name and click Save.

Deactivating a merchant

To deactivate a merchant, next to the merchant you want to deactivate, select Deactivate.

This refreshes the page with the success message displayed. The status of the merchant is Inactive.

Activating a merchant

To activate a merchant, next to the merchant you want to activate, select Activate.

This refreshes the page with the success message displayed. The status of the merchant is Active.

Next steps

Once you have the merchant record available in the system, you can proceed with creating a merchant relation.

See Managing Merchant Relations to know how you create those.
