Waabay Multi Vendor / DropShipper 2.0 (vQmod) is a commercial extension and one of solid multivendor solutions for Opencart that you can find. This module is providing dozen of essential features to convert your online store to ebay like multi vendor platform.
As a part of the ordering process, the system is sending out emails to all vendors related to an order, when they have a new order or when there is a status change in an existing order. But this is bit far away from the reality as all sellers may not tech savvy and they might not checking mails frequently.
So the best solution is sending a notification SMS in such cases and that will trigger the seller to check his emails to find details or take actions. This extension is introducing that key feature to the Waabay core extension with the support of ClickATell SMS Gateway services. In each case vendor will receive both SMS and Email at the same time, so they don’t want to keep their eye on emails regularly to check new orders or order changes. This will be a key marketing point to attract sellers to your platform and you’ll receive the benefit of spending few cents per SMS surely.
This extension required following extensions or services to work with it.
Tested with version 126.96.36.199, should work with 2.x versions.
