    I was looking at whether to use Dokan or WC Vendors. Don’t waste your money with Dokan. Where do I begin? Really dodgy Chinese code! Very unreliable! Crap support. Just to name a few.

    WC Vendors Pro is lacking a few features but I’ve been happy with their support. They have been working non stop to bring new versions out fairly often. There is even a offical plugin make by the buddyboss people.

    Stay away from Dokan!

    Hello Zino,
    Currently we are building an add-on to integrate WooCommerce Subscriptions to sell services using Dokan. We already have a messaging system.

    If you already have WooCommerce Subscription plugin, I can help you to test the system.

    Will you ever have the capability to use Stripe or Paypal gateway payments so that the vendor gets paid directly (minus the marketplace owner’s commission)? I was considering using Dokan to create a marketplace but I do not want my vendors to have to request payment (withdraw). You list the vendor withdrawal request as a benefit but for me it is a deal breaker- I want vendors to be paid directly. Why would I or the vendor want to have the withdrawal request/approval requirement instead of direct payment? That seems like a hassle for both the marketplace owner and the vendor.

    Hi, I have recently created my own marketplace, but I am struggling the understand if a vendor adds products under incorrect category, how can I being an admin make the changes.
    Also if a vendor updates a direct link to their page, I am not sure how I can edit to remove those details.
    Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks and Regards

      Hello Fairy,

      You can set the default status of new products as pending. Each time a new product is created, you will receive a notification via email and none of the products will be published without your permission.

    Hi Fairy,
    1. A good thing about Dokan is that if you have default product status set to “pending review”, when you review you can point out these kind of mistakes to the vendor so that a product with faulty detail never gets published. However, if an admin notices that a product has been published using a wrong category, he/she can either ask the vendor or edit the category from the wp backend himself. For multiple products, admins will be able to bulk edit the products as well.
    2. Vendors cannot edit their store url, they can only choose an url during registration.
