In order to sell things on your site, you need to set up the market, payment gateway and user group permissions. You can use the phpFox social script to create and manage your online store. If you want members to buy things but not sell things, you can set the settings to allow just that by enabling only the Can Browse and View Listings from within the marketplace settings for that user group and not enabling Can Sell Items on the Marketplace and the setting Can Create Listings.
AdminCP >> Modules >> Marketplace >> Manage Categories (if you need to edit any categories)
To edit the default categories, you would have selected Manage Categories and you will see the list of categories.
If you want to change the title of the Marketplace menu to something else, let’s say Boutique, here’s how we will do this: AdminCP >> Extensions >> Phrase Manager and search for Marketplace. You will then see all of the phrases that are showing up with marketplace in them. We will change these but you can just change the ones members will see or you can change them all, as that’s up to you. To change them, in the right column you would change Marketplace to Boutique for wherever you see it. When you are done with one full page of edits, click Save All at the bottom right of the page and go to page 2 and repeat. Do this for however many pages are showing up from the search.
One thing that won’t change is the url, it will still show marketplace. If you want to change it, you could use this free add on, v3 url rewrite manager .
There might be some modules you won’t need active for your store. To manage these go to AdminCP >> Extensions >> Manage Modules
Marketplace plugin is a great tool to drive business for online merchants.
