Part 1: Configure your vendor application

The application is the vendor’s doorway into your market. You are able to set the terms and conditions, required documents, application/acceptance fees, and any additional arbitrary questions that need to be answered.

Access your application

In your market dashboard, click on the “Vendors” tab in the left navigation panel. This will take you to your vendor listing where it shows the status of a vendors application. To update the application, click on the “Your application” button in the top right.

Pressing “Edit application” button will make the application editable and you can proceed to make any necessary changes. In the below example, we’ve removed the question “How many tables do you currently use?” to “Do you need assistance setting up?”.

Another example could be adding an optional document to the “Requested Documents.” In this case, the market now requires a kitchen inspection if applicable, the response is marked "not required" as it may not apply to all vendors.

Pressing the “Save application” button will immediately put all changes into effect, so that any new vendors will see the updated application.
