“Dokan” – is named as out upcoming WordPress theme for building multi-seller e-commerce store, powered by WooCommerce. Our team is working on this for couple of months and it’s going to be released at end of this month or in first half of February.
What is Dokan?:
Dokan – is a Bangladeshi word which means – Shop/Store. This WordPress app theme been building for multi-seller online shops so, we decided to name it Dokan.
Dokan is using WooCommerce as it’s backend engine and will be based on upcoming WooCommerce 2.1. So if you want to build a site having multiple vendors, you can easily do that.
Multi-seller e-commerce stores:
Multi-vendor e-commerce sites are really popular. Sites such as eBay, Etsy and AliBaba, Themeforest etc have enormous reach and support with 100,000's of sellers on just one site.
However, multi-vendor sites are also really difficult to build and maintain. E-commerce itself is difficult enough, but when you multiply the number of transactions and vendors, you multiply all of the potential issues.
For Dokan we tried out best to make things simple, clear and easy enough so any one can run a multi-seller e-commerce site with a little WordPress knowledge!
It has all the features what a multi-seller e-commerce site should have:
– Vendor registration
– Seller Dashboard
– Product Listing
– All woocommerce product variations, attributes etc features from front-end
– Coupon management
– Sales reports
– Each seller's dedicated Store page
– Withdraw System
– and much more…
We haven't put any working demo online. You can check screen shorts here:

Dokan theme has a nice user friendly dashboard in front-end. So if you want to build a site for your client, may be it’ll be a good start if your client isn’t familier with WordPress dashboard.
