What's New in Dokan Subscription v1.2.0
Configuring Different Commission Rates
Now, Dokan Admins can set different commission rates for different subscriptions. This feature allows you to set commission for individual subscription products. Your vendors will receive commissions that you will set using this new feature if they are using that specific subscription. If you do not include any commission, the global commission rate will be applied to that subscription.
Menu Order Added to Vendor Dashboard
Your Vendors will view the subscription packs on their dashboard. Previously, the subscriptions were ordered according to their product creation order. Now, you can customize the menu order in the vendor dashboard from your Dokan admin panel. You can edit menu order for each subscription and rearrange them according to your requirements.
This option is in the Advanced tab of WooCommerce Product Creation page. You have to input the order number for each subscription to rearrange them.
New Subscription Pack Design
This update will give you a new look to the subscription packs. Your vendors will get to see the interactive dynamic design of the packs in vendor dashboard. Besides that, you can always rearrange the order of subscription packs.
Your vendors can view their existing packs above the available ones with detailed information and also a button to cancel it. Please note that- your vendors have to cancel any previous subscription before buying a new one.
Category Restriction for Better Management
Wouldn't it be nice if you could create subscription packs only for specific categories? This might become really handy in some cases. The new update of Dokan Subscription gives you the ability to create subscription packs with allowing or restricting categories. This gives you a better management option. However, you can restrict categories by adding rest to the pack.
This option is under the Vendor Commission in the WooCommerce Product Creation page. You can select categories from the available list using drop down menu. While you are selecting categories, you are allowing this subscription packs for those specific categories. If you leave this field empty, all available categories will be selected.
