The prohibition of choosing a non-final category for the vendor

Module "Prohibiting the selection of a non-finite category for a vendor" for Multi-Vendor

The module prohibits sellers from placing products in intermediate categories. This obliges the seller to strictly observe the hierarchy of the category tree. This is the only way to guarantee that the buyer will be able to quickly and easily find the right product.


Sellers independently distribute goods by categories of the marketplace. In some cases, due to inattention or negligence, the seller may put the goods in an intermediate category, which can make it much more difficult for the buyer to find the right product.

For example, a seller sells smartphones. The marketplace has categories of Electronics – Smartphones – Samsung and further by separate lines and models.

Ideally, the products should be sorted into final categories corresponding to specific brands. However, the seller can put all smartphones in the "Smartphones" category. When the buyer moves to the category with the desired model, he simply will not see any goods there and will go to another platform.

To avoid such situations, we have created a module "Prohibiting the selection of non-finite categories".



The module prohibits sellers from placing goods in intermediate (not final) categories. The seller is forced to search for the final category in the selected branch and place the goods in it.

This organizes the category tree, helps buyers find the right products faster, and disciplines sellers.
