Can Vendors be the business that is listing itself?

Hi, am trying to understand how to set up the Listings, Categories and Attributes for a beauty service website that is global.

And can Vendors be the business that is listing itself?
If so how does one connect it all together?

Hi,

Please provide more details, and we will try to help you.

You can add listings from the backend in WP Dashboard > Listings > Add new, or from frontend, by clicking on the button Add Listing, attributes in WP Dashboard > Listings > Attributes, and categories in WP Dashboard > Listings > Categories How to add listing categories - HivePress Help Center

A regular user becomes a vendor only after publishing at least one listing.

Hi Andrii,

Thank you for your reply. Apologies for not explaining my questions in detail.

The directory I am building will be available worldwide as long as the listings are in English.

I understand where to add listings, attributes, and categories.
What I do not understand is;

  1. which do I use (listings, attributes, and categories) to set up cities?
  2. which do I use (listings, attributes, and categories) to set up Stylist types: barbers, hair salons and hairdressers?
  3. which do I use (listings, attributes, and categories) to set up Service Types: haircut, hair colour, and hair styling?

Also with Add Attribute what goes where

Add Attribute
Add Title

Editing

Editable - Allow front-end editing
Field Name?
Field Type?

Search
Filterable - Display in the filter form
Indexable - Include in keyword search
Sortable - Display as a sorting option
Field Type (optional)

Display
Areas (optional)?
Icon (optional)?
Format (optional)? %value%

I have read and watched many videos on how to set it up however, I just do not understand it all.

Cheers
John
