Go ahead and add them to your site now, if you haven’t already done so. Next, it is time to move forward and see your ProfileGrid user profile turn into a WooCommerce shop.
The Global Setting
After installation and activation from the ‘Plugins’ tab inside the WP dashboard, visit the ‘Global Settings’ under the ‘ProfileGrid’ dashboard tab. In it, you will see the new setting by the name of ‘WooCommerce (Advanced)’. To proceed ahead, click on this new setting.
Inside this settings category, you will see the option to enable Advanced WooCommerce Integration. Go ahead and enable it now.
The Group Settings
Once the advanced integration is enabled, it will add three new options to the Group Settings screen in the dashboard. These are…
- Display WooCommerce Vendor Dashboard Tab: Enabling this will display the complete WooCommerce Vendor Dashboard of WC Vendors Marketplace inside your ProfileGrid user profile. If you are using the Pro version of WC Vendors Marketplace, then the enhanced version of the WooCommerce Vendor Dashboard will display. This tab will only be visible on a user’s own profile.
- Display Shop Tab: Enabling this will display all products uploaded by a user for sale on the ProfileGrid user profile. This tab will be visible to all users.
- Display Shop Settings Tab: Enabling this will display the settings related to shop setup as provided by WC Vendors Marketplace on the ProfileGrid user profile.
Advanced WooCommerce User Profiles
Now that all the required settings are configured from ProfileGrid dashboard, let’s see how the woocommerce profile is going to appear on the front-end of our website.
On the WooCommerce Vendor Dashboard tab, you can see all the statistics provided by WC Vendors to WooCommerce vendors.
On the Shop tab, you can see the products uploaded by a vendor for sale via WooCommerce and WC Vendors plugin. This tab enables ProfileGrid woocommerce profiles to act as a marketplace where users can buy and sell products, all the while making friends, joining groups and engaging in text chats.
On the Shop Settings tab, all the settings controlling the vendor’s shop is displayed. From here, a vendor can configure Shop name, Description, Bank Details, etc.
More Integrations to Follow
Turning ProfileGrid user profiles into full fledged marketplaces isn’t the only thing we have in mind for this ProfileGrid extension. As you already know, WooCommerce’s functionality is extended in many directions by many extensions. And some of these extensions have so much more potential in them if only they can be integrated with user profiles and social activity. This is where the ProfileGrid Advanced WooCommerce Integration comes in.
Stay tuned to our blog as we keep on adding more functionality to this amazing ProfileGrid extension. If you have any specific feature requests related to WooCommerce and user profiles, let us know in the comments below. We are always happy to have feedback!
If I use woo memberships – and then maybe user profiles could simply store it so i could then start customizing my site based on membership…. I also wonder about woo-commerce sensi ( lms )
That could prove to be versatile but I don’t use it and wonder how well it works as a lms.
Be nice to create memberships so when people join a group they are assigned a membership – dunno?
I am sorry, but we will need to further details as to what actually you are trying to achieve here in conjunction to out plugin. Details are not clear, and we recommend you to open a ticket for this via our support portal for better communication.
