What is

Vendor Onboarding


Vendor Onboarding Definition

For any online marketplace, it is essential to have a smooth and streamlined process for vendor onboarding. This is the process of bringing in new vendors to sell their products or services on the platform. Vendor onboarding typically involves a series of steps that enable vendors to create a profile, upload their products, agree to terms and conditions, and start selling.

It's important to ensure that the vendor onboarding process is as simple as possible, as this will encourage a greater number of vendors to join the marketplace. By making the process easy to follow and providing the necessary resources and support, online marketplaces can attract high-quality vendors and improve their overall sales performance.

Here's an example of a vendor onboarding process once due diligence has been done:

  • Step 1: Activate account
  • Step 2: Create a payout account
  • Step 3: Set up inventory and fulfillment
  • Step 4: Create a product listing
