Once the code is entered along with relevant details, they can move to step 2.
Step 2: After submitting the form, either the vendor can directly enter their dashboard, or they will have to wait for final approval from the admin. This can be configured from required approval option in Admin settings as shown below:
If required approval option is enabled, then the user will get the following message on the screen:
