D. Virtual things.Other services which don't handle on site. For example, we have a customer use this option to sell World of Warcraft Account.
3. Charge Percent
You can charge based vendor's sell. For example,if you enter 20% ,and a vendor sell $100 in your site,you then get $20 and vendor will get $80.
2.2.3 Disable unwanted fields
Module has some built-in fields for product informations.Like "Summary/Support/Sku/Weight/Image.......".You can control whether to use them for each deparment. For example, if you uncheck "Enable Sku Field" option, then when post products which belong to that deparment, the "Sku" field will be hidden.It also will be hidden when display in product list and detail module.
2.2.4 Customize your own fields ( for long content)
Besides the built-in field, each department also supports up to 5 additional fields to let you publish long content (text/html content). You can specify its title and default value. If a field is enabled, then it will display on product edit/detail interface.
For example, we need a “Testimonials from snowcovered“ attributes while publish our modules.So we enable “Specification 1 “ and set its name as “Testimonials from snowcovered“ like below:
After that, we can enter “Testimonials from snowcovered“ for each module. As followings:
2.2.5 Customize your own fields ( for short content)
Different product department has different property. For example, if you sell computer, you may want specify its cpu type/monitor type..etc. If you sell clothes,you may want to specify its color/size/material. After creating a attribute, you can then create specific attribute values for an individual product (e.g. "Red", "Green", "Blue")..
P9 - Customize attributes.
Below is a list of data types you can specify for attribute:
A. Basic data like string / int / decimal / datetime / date / time / Boolean / currency.

By default, module will automatic create countries/ states data for US and Canada. You can delete them if you don’t need.
This is vital if you want to shipping to client.Once you have created a shipping method, it can be used to calculate shipping costs based on various criteria ( based shipping country/state/ship method/product weight,etc).

Like the shopping cart, sell report. etc. However, other features will work as the same, like help ticket,watch list,coment,rating, etc.

A product can have multiple video/audio/image/attachment with it. If vendor has disk quote,he can choose his own files to add. If his disk quote is set to 0, he can only add from external url or from embed code.
Take video as example, vendor can add video from his own files /external url/ embed code.
P12 - Add video from embed code
As most of video sites offer embed code,vendor can upload their video to these sites( like YouTube) if he doesn't have disk quote on site, then simply copy its embed code.

Especially for YouTube videos, user can simply add its url , like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0klgLsSxGsU. Module will auto detect it and play.
If you have multiple video/image/audio to add, instead of add them one by one, you can upload them to a folder, and choose “Add from folder “ to add them once.

Vendor may offer varied discount based certain conditions. For example, buy both product A and product B will offer 10%, buy more than 10 quantity will excuse ship fee, old customer will have 5% discount ,etc. Handle these discount via programme is a trickiness thing. We choose a straightforward yet useful way to solve this question - let vendor modify order summary.
Vendor provide necessay information about product discount in “Special Offer“ content. Client can add product to cart, then submit “Discount Request“ ( or by other ways,like help ticket,comment,msn,mail,phone,etc) before check out. Vendor can click “Product in cart“ to open information and change order summary according client's request.
