Frontend Submissions


Frontend Submissions provides a full-featured package to turn your Easy Digital Downloads powered website into complete marketplace, similar to ThemeForest, Etsy, Creative Market, and other online marketplaces.

With Frontend Submissions, users can register and apply to become a vendor, manage their products from the frontend, view their orders, communicate with customers, control their public profile, and more. All of this happens on the frontend of your website through the Vendor’s Dashboard.

Site admins have complete control over the vendor and product approval process and are given extensive controls to manage vendors and their products.

Frontend Submissions is the perfect extension to turn your Easy Digital Downloads store into a full-fledged marketplace.

Features Overview:

  • Complete vendor and product review and management system
  • Full frontend Vendor Dashboard for vendors to manage their products, profile, orders and more
  • Drag-and-drop form builders for registration, submission, and profile forms
  • Email notification options for product submissions, product status changes, vendor registrations, and more
  • Extensive settings to control the exact behavior of vendor registration, product submission, and more
This extension is fully integrated with Commissions for easily tracking vendors’ earnings. Use the FESCOMMISSIONS discount code to save 20% when both are purchased together.
