Important! Only a person already registered at CopeCart as an Affiliate can be a Seller. A user with the Vendor account cannot be a Seller.
Sellers are Affiliates with extended permissions whose task is to sell your products via the Phone Sales feature. Sellers can change a product price, the amount, and quantity of payments on the fly to make the ordering process faster and more flexible.
