WooCommerce Shipping

The shipping functionality is being handled by WooCommerce. So you are free to use any WooCommerce compatible payment gateways with Dokan. WooCommerce already has some built in shipping gateways, these can only be configured by the admin and will work for each vendor. The vendors will not be able to configure any shipping charges if you use any shipping gateway other than Dokan Shipping.

To know more about how WooCommerce shipping gateway works and how to configure them, please read their official documentation.

You need the Dokan Premium version to activate this feature.

Dokan Shipping

Dokan plugin has the most advanced feature to enable the sellers to add shipping costs from the frontend. Using this feature is optional. If you do not like this feature and want to use the old school WooCommerce shipping classes, then no action is required.

The state based shipping option of Dokan plugin can be found on wp-admin -> WooCommerce → Settings → Shipping → Dokan Shipping.
