Main Dashboard

The vendor dashboard is a both dynamic and always up-to-date. It gives you an instant overview of how your store is performing. You can change the start/end dates at the top to get all your stores’ sales results. Showing you the number of orders, total products sold, commission owed, and commission paid at the top.

The Order Totals is a bar chart that normally populates properly for every day of orders for the reporting period chosen. The Product Totals give you a quick overview of the percentage of sales each product brings to your stores’ total revenue.

Orders Dashboard

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]You have various options on your Order Dashboard. You can send a message to the customer before shipping as well as after shipping. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Getting & Managing Ratings from Customers” google_fonts=”font_family:Tenor%20Sans%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]We do keep flipflopping between the term Ratings and Feedback – they are the same. Customers can leave you 1 to 5 stars for your products by visiting their My Orders page and clicking Leave Feedback.

Customers Can Leave Feedback

They can edit/update the feedback at any time, too, that way if you get a poor review you can work with the customer to make their experience/product better and perhaps they will update their rating.

Customers Can Revise Feedback

Here’s how the customer feedback page looks. They need to (1) select a rating, (2) enter a title, (3) write their comment, and (4) click submit.

Sellers offer coupon codes as an incentive to shoppers to purchase from their store. They place the codes on their blogs or offer member-only promotional codes in their personal email newsletters. You could even include your coupon codes in print advertising and other forms of business literature.

Coupon Dashboard

As a vendor on Afrimash, you can create coupons specifically for your products. These coupons will not work on any other products, except for those in your store. You can include only certain products, include all of your products, or even include all and exclude others, or even by category!

Coupon Creation Page

The coupon can be a percentage discount or a flat price reduction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
