Note: The Frontend Submission plugin does not include a feature to email Vendors when their products have sold. This is because the Frontend Submissions plugin does not handle the actual payment to any of the Vendors. If desired, it can be done by using the EDD Commissions extension and setting the commission to zero, which will still send an email to a Vendor when their product is purchased.
