Seller ledger

In a multi-seller marketplace, admin and sellers need to keep a track of different transactions that take place in their accounts. It allows you to view and manage these transactions.

Go to Sellers > Seller Ledger section in StoreHippo Admin Panel.

In the seller ledger, two tabs are present:

  • All: In this tab, all the transactions will are present with the complete list of credit and debit entries for all sellers or selected sellers.
  • Order wise: In this tab, the order wise transactions are listed as shown below.

    You can click on an order and all the transactions related to that order will be listed. You can also filter the transactions by a time range.

Transactions in seller ledger are generated for the following actions:

  • Product Listing Fee: If a Product Listing Fee is defined in Seller Ledger Rules, then a transaction will be created with the product listing fee for every product added. 

  • Product Selling Fee: If a Product Selling Fee is defined in Seller Ledger Rules, then a transaction will be created with the product selling fee for every product that is sold. 

  • Order Shipping Fee: If an Order Shipping Fee is defined, then a transaction will be created with the order shipping fee for every order that is shipped.
  • Order Placed: When an order is placed, the paid amount of the order will be credited to the seller. 
  • Order Cancelled: When an order is canceled, the paid amount of the order will be debited from the seller's account.

  • Order Shipped: If the seller has used the shipping services to ship the product then the shipping charges will be debited from the seller's account.

  • COD Remittance: For COD orders, the amount of the order will be credited to the seller once the amount is received from the logistics provider.
  • TCS: If TCS tax is enabled in your store, the tax is payable by a seller. The debit entry of 1% of the total amount of the order value is added in seller ledger.
