If you have the Convious Reseller module enabled, you may want to set different prices for certain products, either for all Resellers or certain resellers. In this 10-step guide, you will learn how to set this up from your Control Panel easily.
First, it is important that have the category you want your Resellers to access and the products you want to sell.
You can find a detailed description of how to set up categories and products here.

⚠️ Note the following things are crucial for you:
- Do you want to use time slots for this category? If yes, please enable them here.
- The category needs to be activated.
- The category needs to be enabled for either all resellers or selected resellers.
You can select one or multiple resellers.
- If the category you are enabling for the resellers you chose should also show in your public Checkout, then please make sure to enable visibility. If it is a category only relevant for the respective reseller, make sure to not make it visible in the Checkout.
Further, you need to make sure the products within the category are activated for the reseller to see and use their buying flow.
