Introducing Dokan Delivery Driver & Newly Designed Vendor Dashboard
Today we are introducing the new Dokan Delivery Driver App and the new Dokan Vendor Dashboard plugin.
We have been getting requests for quite some time now about this feature. And after much research, many bugs, and many lines of code, we are finally ready with the Dokan Delivery Driver app and the plugin.
This app will add another dimension to the WordPress-powered marketplace as new vendors will be able to deliver their own products and track the whereabouts of the drivers, and orders. That way they will have more control over the delivery system of the marketplace.
Along with that, we are also prepared to release the new Vendor Dashboard plugin. After installing this plugin vendors will see a new and revamped vendor dashboard.
We are going to discuss the features of both of these products.
Presenting Dokan Delivery Driver App & Plugin: An Efficient Way to Deliver Goods
Dokan has always thought about its users. That is why Dokan has released regular updates so that admin and vendors can easily manage their marketplace.
In line with that, Dokan has added another amazing feature to its arsenal ” The Dokan Delivery Driver App”. Here is what you can expect from the app and the plugin,
Easy Setup and Configuration
First and foremost, both the Dokan Delivery app and plugin are user-friendly. The app is designed so that even those with the slightest technical knowledge can use the app. The interface is simple and interactive, and very easy to set up. The driver only needs to download the app from the play store or app store and register using their name and email.
The admin can control all the configurations from the WordPress dashboard by using the Dokan Delivery Driver plugin. The plugin is also easy to use and we have added all the necessary instructions, and tooltips to further guide the admin.
Live Location to Track Orders and Drivers
By default, the admin can track the whereabouts of the drivers. The plugin will also allow admin and vendors to track the drivers, and customers and the driver can use the app to track the customer's location. Also, the customer can see the driver's location from their account.
For that, you need to integrate Dokan's Geolocation module to further enhance the location tracking.
Moreover, the plugin and the app are synced. Whenever the order status is changed by the admin, vendor, or delivery driver, respected parties will be notified. The customer can also view the order status from their account.
Easy Driver Set up and Verification
As we said earlier, the Dokan Delivery Driver app is very easy to use and set up. The registration process is very easy. Just like any other app, drivers need to add their name, email, and phone number. And for verification, they need to upload the required documents (driving license, National ID Card, etc).
The verification process is also simple. The admin gets to review the documents from the backend and if everything checks out then the admin can verify the driver in one click. Easy as that.

Organized sorting of Product features for you to easily find and modify as you go. If your vendors want to make changes to only the “Inventory” section and “RMA” section, they can easily do it by jumping from one section to another with the sidebar categorization.
