    I strongly believe that Per user seller percentage should be as plugin, not theme. What if the user decided to change to another theme in future?

      Dokan is already a theme, not a plugin. So only thing you could do is creating a new or using as a child theme. In that case, it doesn’t matter because all the parent theme functionalities will be inherited to the child theme.

        By saying “change to another theme”. I mean other theme from another company. No one can guarantee that users will remain using their theme forever.

        I recommend you to read these great articles before deciding whether the functions should go into plugin or theme:

          I personally advocate for this too, but I had to make the decision for tying the functionality better with the theme. But eventually the functions will be moved to a plugin in near future 🙂

        Hi Tareq,

        Any ideas on how long for the next theme update with the child theme available ?

        I really think this is an absolutely basic requirement for the theme to have a working child theme and I would gladly purchase Dokan if it had a child theme available.

        I found this post here in your forums : http://wedevs.com/support/topic/child-theme-3/
        It doesn’t really solve a problem of a child theme if you need to change things around in your function scripts does it ?

        I don’t really want to start a site based on your theme and then be migrating to a child theme if it’s finally released, so i think I will hold of Dokan for now and keep using my alternative ..
        Considering I raised the question of child themes a couple of months ago and still nothing, i don’t think it’s coming any time soon ..

          Hello Joe,

          There are lots of development is going on with Dokan. Feature improvements and other add-ons, so yes the child theme is coming very slow right now. But we’ve a child theme in progress and about 75% done. Hopefully we’ll be able to release some child themes very soon and make the process faster.

    Hello Abhishek,

    Hi Badsha,
    I was seeking fluke. No worries, actually my client wanted the shipping cost be included in commission and they don’t wanted to give permission to the seller to set the shipping cost.
    Finally, i break through the problems to find the solution and now its ok.

    Another issue is, how can we round off the seller amount? eg: if the seller earning is 347 or 583 how can we round-off in this way; 345 or 580. For the withdrawal of amount it would be easy as recommended by my client.
