    I just installed both the fedex plugin and the multivenfor add-on. I am using woocommerce product vendor to manage my marketplace and set “pass shipping and taxes to vendor”. However only taxes are being passed on and not the FEDEX shipping rate. I need to pass shipping cost also to the vendor much similar to how taxes are passed on the vendors. Please advise.

      Hello Debabrat,

      Our Woocommerce multi-vendor Add-on for shipping plugins is not an independent plugin but it is an add-on for Multi-vendor plugins. it works with,
      -Woocommerce product vendors
      -Dokan Multi-vendor plugin for Woocommerce
      -Woocommerce Vendors pro plugins.

      You need to have FedEx plugin, any of these above Multi-Vendor plugins and our free version of Multi-vendor add-on for shipping plugins (https://wordpress.org/plugins/multi-vendor-add-on-for-thirdparty-shipping/)

      Please install all the three plugins mentioned above, and go through the step by step setup guide.
      Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Veeresh
