Seller Holiday Mode
The Holiday Mode feature enables Sellers to put their shop offline, with a click of a button. This will stop orders from flowing in but still allow Sellers to login and access Seller Center. The feature can be enabled during holidays, stock taking period etc.
How Holiday Mode Benefits Seller?
As a Seller, you have full control on when you want to stop receiving new orders when you go on a holiday. This can prevent orders backlog pile up that could potentially lead to bad customer experience.
