Bulk Actions like approving, uploading, publishing, unpublishing, and deleting can take up to a few seconds for it to reflect on Shopify.
When you make a product upload settings change like disabling the ability for vendors to create products or unchecking editable fields and saving. Your vendors will have to logout of the vendor portal and log back in for the changes to take effect.
Products are always published as a draft by default. You will have to select the publish channel to see it on your live website. Note: We are working hard to allow you to directly control this.
For testing purposes, please only be logged in as either a merchant or a vendor at a time. Being logged in as both at the same time can cause issues.
