Anyone who is thinking about owning a marketplace, the first name that comes to mind is Dokan. Because it has a rich list of features along with some exclusive modules that make it the best multi-vendor marketplace in WordPress.
So, there is no surprise that 60000+ marketplace owners have put their faith in Dokan. Having said that, the latest release has some improvements and fixes that will give them the experience of owning a marketplace a major uplift.
Without further ado let's get on with the details and find out what this latest release has in store for us.
But before that, a compulsory reminder
Before updating to the new version make sure you keep a backup of all the previous data.
What Dokan Pro 3.0 Has in Store for You
weDevs has always thought about their customers first. That is why we try to make improvements and fix the issues as soon as possible. Over 60000 marketplace owners rely on Dokan and that's not a small responsibility.
Now, with the latest version, we are trying to give our customers the satisfaction of using a flagship product. Let see what the new Dokan Pro 3.0 has to offer.
Major Upgrade In Dokan Pro's Performance
One of the things that frustrates the user is the long buffering or load time of any software. It hampers productivity and also disrupts the flow of work. The performance of any software fairly depends on the code structure.
The new Dokan Pro 3.0 has gone through a major refactoring.
That means its code structure has improved significantly. It will obviously help improve the performance of the plugin as it will run faster and load faster.
Also, you will experience a smoother and more optimized performance of the premium modules due to the updated and improved code structure. The codebase is reorganized in a cleaner way so that feature enhancement will be faster and less complex from now on.
Documentation Link With Every Module
When we try a new product or plugin for the first time, the first question that comes to mind is how to use it. Blogs tell us the usage of the product or the plugin. However, we get the best idea from the documentation of the product.
Documentation is the user-manual of any product.
That is why it is important to maintain and update the documentation. We already mentioned that Dokan has some amazing modules that make managing an e-Commerce marketplace easy. For every module, we provide documentation as the modules are somewhat complex.
But it is time-consuming to find the right documentation. Keeping that in mind Dokan Pro 3.0 comes with the link of documentation of that particular module built within. That way you can get the idea of how the module works straight away.
WooCommerce 4.0 Compatible
As you know Dokan is very dependent on WooCommerce. In order to use Dokan, you have to install WooCommerce first. So, if there were any conflicts with the plugin the Dokan users had to face some serious issues.
Recently WooCommerce 4.0 was released. Earlier, Dokan had some compatibility issues with this version of WooCommerce. But the good news is now Dokan is perfectly compatible with it now. You will not face any problem.
Other Notable Fixes & Improvements
The above-mentioned improvements were not only one. There are more fixes and improvements that have come with Dokan Pro 3.0. Have a look at the changelog below.
