After a non-trusted vendor submits a new product for approval by the store administrator, the store administrator is notified about the fact via a bell notification: tnt_bell_unapproved_products.png (The words “Unapproved products N” are a link which the store administrator can use to quickly access the list of products sent for approval; N is the number of products for review.)

The store administrator can use the “Unapproved products N” link in the bell notification or go to the Products section and use filtering to find the products in the “Sent for approval” state.

To approve or decline the publication of a product, the store administrator needs to open the product for viewing/editing; then they need to use the Approve or the Decline button according to what action they require. tnt_approve_decline.png

If the administrator chooses to approve the publication of the product, a popup titled “Approve and add comment” will be displayed: tnt_approve_add_comment.png

To approve the publication of the product, the store administrator will need to click the Approve product button. Leaving a comment for the vendor is optional.

If the administrator chooses to decline the publication of the product, a popup titled “Decline and add comment” will be displayed: tnt_decline_add_comment.png

To decline the publication of the product, the store administrator will need to click the Decline product button. Leaving a comment for the vendor is optional.

Approving or declining the publication of a product triggers an email notification to the vendor to notify them of the product status change. If the administrator has chosen to leave a comment, the comment is sent to the vendor along with the email notification.
