his section allows the admin to place the content of the email which will be triggered once the vendor(s) applies for subscription in the site. Note that you do not need to provide the Dashboard Url in the mail content as it will be automatically appended in the mail.

From here the admin can set the fields of the registration form which has to be filled by vendors for subscribing to the site.

Custom Plan page: One can set the Plan page from the list of pages in the drop-down, thus incase admin has created a custom page, then it can be selected from here.
Custom Thank you page: Incase the admin has developed a custom Thank you page, it can be set from here using the available drop-down. This page will be displayed after completion of membership subscription.
Subscription First Step: This will allow the admin to choose the first step of the membership subscription. You can either keep Registration as first step ( where users will be asked to enter details such as name, email etc) OR plan selection page ( where users can select membership plans).
Basic membership: The admin can choose the membership plan which will be auto-assigned to the vendors if their subscription has expired or recurring subscription is cancelled.
