Dokan is Getting More Affordable: Price Reduction & Changes in Packages

Back in the days when we released the first version of Dokan, it was actually a Premium Theme. If you know Dokan only for a year or two, I know how ridiculous it sounds. But, that's how it all got started. Soon we realized Dokan could do more, and to be able to grow we need to change dramatically, we evolved to a fully functional Plugin. Later we created many addons that adds even more functionality. Currently, there are over 18 official and 3rd-party addons. But the current process is – you have to buy a Dokan Pro license and buy Addons separately. We are changing this to help you, the Dokan user (the most important segment) grow, at the same time, we (weDevs) could push Dokan to new heights.

Dokan Pricing Before? 

Currently, there is a free core version of Dokan available at WordPress.org, that will remain the same. You get all the awesome feature, which is even comparable with other premium solution (you could look at this comparison if you have not yet). If you want to upgrade now you have this packages for you to upgrade –

And after that, if you want to have more feature you could have purchased any or all of the addons below –

What Is Changing?

In short, we are combining Dokan Pro and our addons. So, now you don't have to buy Dokan Pro & Addons separately, we are packaging it together. And our pricing is getting simpler as well. And the entry package in Dokan Pro is now cheaper, and we are announcing Live Chat support for the Enterprise Package.

Dokan is Now More Affordable Than Ever Before!

It's like a present from Santa before the Christmas even started!

Yeah, now Dokan is available at a reduced price. It's not an offer! From now on, you can buy Dokan Multivendor Marketplace Plugin for only $149. This means we have reduced the price by $50! Here are the new Pricing and Packages at a glimpse –

Check the new Pricing!

 

Not only that, we have also added all our existing add-ons as modules in premium packs so that you get what you need at a reasonable price. We are making things easier for you and helping you to decide what you really need.

You don't have to worry about premium add-ons and calculate how much it will cost after you have bought the Pro plugin for $199.

Starter & Professional Package

The Starter package is now only $149 and it provides you all the features that were available on previous Dokan 1 site license. If you spend $100 more, you get amazing useful modules with the Professional package –

So, no more Addons?

No, we won't sale addons separately, now we call those modules, depending on the package you purchase, you will get those modules pre-activated, in the new Module menu. You could activate and deactivate depending on your use.

What Happens to the Existing Add-on Users?

It will keep working as it should, but you will have the choice to upgrade to Higher Pro package with 50% discount if you have an active license for Dokan Pro.

Why are We Doing this?

As I explained at the beginning Dokan is growing, so as the Marketplace ecosystem. We did not create all of our addons in one day, it was created over the year, and the way we see it extends Dokan functionality to a height that we are very proud of. But as you have to buy each and every addons separately, and it's very much possible that you don't even know that Dokan offers a function, which costs maybe just $19 bucks. We feel here pricing should not be a burden, the function discovery process should have been more straightforward. If Dokan has a certain feature, we want our user to use that, we know from our user that those features are helpful, the extra addon should not bother now, now you have very easier choice, you buy once, pay once and you have access to all the functionalities that are useful to you for a whole year.

What's New in Dokan Multivendor  V 2.7.0

Introducing All New Modules for Dokan

Say bye bye to previous add-ons, which were very difficult to manage. From our new update, we are going to transform all our add-ons into modules. Guess what, you will be able to manage all of them from a single place. So, we have added a new menu called ‘Modules' and removed the old ‘Add-ons' menu. This is how the new page looks like.

You get all the previous add-ons as modules. They will be available on a single page so its easier for you to manage. This means you don't have to install separate plugins to use the features. Now, you can simply click on a toggle button and activate or deactivate any module you want! Neat, right? 😀

Automatic Updates for Modules

Previously, you didn't get a live update for any of the Dokan add-ons. Now, you can manage them from a single place as well as get live updates directly with Dokan plugin. So, no more manual updates! You don't have to download each add-ons and install them separately every time you get an update.

Interactive Settings Page to Manage it All

Dokan now has better and improved settings page where you can easily configure everything for your Dokan Multivendor.

Our Advise to You

And if you want to know in details why you should always keep your Dokan Store updated and use the latest version of WooCommerce, you should check this article.

    In principle I like what you’ve done, but what happens if we only want 1 or 2 of the addons? We now can’t chose the addons we want, only the ones you add to each package.

    For example, if I only wanted subscriptions and auction, I have no way of getting just those two unless I buy the $499 option. That’s a lot more expensive than paying $199 and just the two extensions I wanted.

    I’m afraid that could be a deal breaker for me, it’s taken the choice of addons out of my hands….

        Thank you, if I can purchase Profeessional and then just add Auctions on it’s own that would be perfect for me, and would make me purchase. Without that option, not convinced I would…

        Many thanks, really appreciated.

    Hi
    i want to develop a vendor platform in WordPress please guide me and have any free trails in you Dokan Pro.

    I really dokan but i think a better packaging system would have been to allow users to choose the extensions they want because it can now mean i have to buy extensions i will never use. Because of this you may chase away loyal and potential clients. that’s my view.

    Why buy and spend $499 on a plugin! while it is offered for free (nulled) + updated regularly to the recent version (nulled either)?

    I found the Business plan (complete + entire plugins + recent versions) offered for free online! Can you tell me what else you can offer to encourage me to buy a license?

      Hi Waleed,

      Thanks for your comment.

      While it may sound (and feel) great that you’re getting to run a premium software unlicensed and in an unethical way, nulled versions are in fact not so great for your site or business for a couple of reasons:
      – nulled plugins deliberately come with scripts and malware inserted in them which attack your local server and website without your knowledge.
      – this also means you may see irritating pop ups and other unwanted obstructions within your site that will be a complete nuisance to your users, even driving traffic away.
      – running a nulled version prevents you from getting future updates/developments from the developer, which means you’re missing out on all the weekly improvements and new releases of the plugin.
      – when you miss the updates, your site stands a great risk of getting attacked anytime by hackers. And if you’re using WordPress for sometime, you probably know that security breaches can cause your entire site to break down and compromise. You become more vulnerable to having your data stolen. This is especially scary if you’re running an eCommerce site and don’t have your eCommerce plugin [like Dokan] updated to the latest versions [Dokan btw gets updated quite frequently, even every week].
      – if you’re running an unlicensed plugin on a site which has personal identification and private data of customers, such as, credit cards, address, phone numbers, and a lot more, all of these can be stolen by attackers from your site without your knowledge. And not to forget, loss of users’ trust, brand reliability and your reputation – these are additional costs that a user needs to bear for running nulled plugins. And sometimes these are irreparable.
      – with nulled plugins you also don’t get to obtain support from the official representatives of Dokan, which means your issues don’t solve as quickly as they should.
      – last but not the least, you’re working unethically against coders, which in and of itself is an offence.
