Creating your product
Products can be created quickly from Partner Center > Marketplace > Manage Products by clicking Add Product. Simply fill follow the steps in the Add Product wizard, and your product will be created.
After you've created your product, you will have the option to continue editing it from within Vendor Center.
Alternatively, you can begin creating your product within Vendor Center by clicking the Add Product button. This will provide you with the complete list of customization options for your product. You can always edit this information later, so don't stress about these fields too much—other users won't see this product in Partner Center until you click Publish Product, and your customers won't see the product in your Store until you've published it in a package.
Product information is separated into tabs within Vendor Center. The following sections correspond to these tabs.
The Basic Info section in Vendor Center is where you edit the essential aspects of your product's presentation, pricing, and availability.
- Name —The name of your product.
- Icon — Your product's icon, which appears alongside the name.
- Short description — the "tagline" that appears in previews of your product in your Store and marketing material
Pricing & Trials
Here you can set the pricing model that your product follows, including defining billing frequency, commitment periods, retail price, and trial availability.
Here you can configure the steps taken during the activation of your product, including the messages and notifications sent when a product is activated. You can also choose to use and customize an order form to collect the information relevant to an individual activation of your product.
Choose which countries your product is available in. If no countries are specified, your product will automatically be available in any country.
End User Marketing is shown when users click on the product card on any store pages. This is used to entice users to purchase your app, as well as for you to provide important information to prospective buyers.
To edit sections of your end user marketing, click on any of the outlined boxes. Areas of particular interest are:
- Description – Let users know what your app is about.
- Key Selling Points – A bullet-point list of features to tell users what your app does.
- FAQs – Answer any questions users might commonly have about your app.
- Pricing – Set the cost of your app. This will appear on any store pages you've configured.
- Gallery – Upload images of the app in use.
- Files – Any files that might prove useful to your end users.

Products created through Vendor Center can use either Basic or SSO integration to enhance their functionality within the Vendasta platform, including activating webhooks, redirection to specified URLs, and integration with Vendasta's Marketplace API. For more information, consult our Vendasta Marketplace documentation.
If your product requires add-ons, they can be created under this tab.
Publishing a product
Once you have finished editing your product, you can make it available to be managed under Partner Center > Marketplace > Manage Products and added to your Store by clicking Publish Product.
