User Sign up and Multisite site creation

Hi, I am using gravity forms to capture more info from vendors who are going to contribute products to a store site by using Multisite, letting them have their own shop/blog, add products and then migrate final products to the main ROOT site of the multisite.

How do I prevent new users form having access to the ROOT SITE as I have to make the new users Shop Managers by default.

Please advise.

    Hello Chris,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Could you please shed some more light on your setup? I think I understand what you wish to achieve but I'm not aware what "tools" are you referring to/do you have at hand.

    That said:
    - are you using MarketPress or WooCommerce (or other e-commerce plugin)?
    - are you using our Pro Sites (or any other similar plugin) to let users create their own sites/shops?
    - what's the initial user-role that they are getting on a main site after registration and were there any customizations made regarding this?

    Any information that you think may be related would help.

    Please advise!

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
