Product statuses in a Vendo-powered marketplace determine whether the products are visible in the storefront. Furthermore, they act as a communication channel between Marketplace Operator and a seller, as they can inform which products are ready to be visible on the storefront. In this article, all of the statuses will be described, along with the entire product lifecycle.
The product lifecycle can be represented by the following diagram:
Currently, there are four product statuses in Vendo: Draft, Ready for review, Active, and Archived. The Marketplace Operator can set every status. The seller can set only selected statuses.
Draft is an initial status for all imported products, regardless of an integration of a seller. Active products can have their status changed back to draft. Marketplace operator can activate a product that has both
ready for review status.
Ready for review indicates to the marketplace operator that the product is ready for publishing to the storefront.
Active products are visible on the storefront. This status shows that the product can be viewed by the clients.
Archived status marks products that will not be visible on the storefront and generally means products have been deactivated and are not meant to return to the storefront. Such status will also be presented once a seller is suspended in the marketplace.
