Key Features of the Dokan Cloud

Dokan Cloud is a brand new SaaS product from weDevs. They have only added the necessary features as of now. That being said, they will gradually release the features that are needed to make this eCommerce solution stand out.

Now let’s the key features of the Dokan Cloud:

1. Detailed Dashboard and Report Filtering

Admin will be able to see a big picture of how well their online store is doing from the admin dashboard. They can easily check how much money they’re making, how many customers they have, how many orders they’re getting, how many products they’ve sold, and if they’ve given any money back.

They can see all this information in graphs and charts, which makes it easy to understand quickly.

There’s also a special section where they can see reports. They can choose to see the data for each day, each month, or each year. This helps them understand trends and make smart decisions.

2. Page Builder

This is the coolest thing about Dokan Cloud.

Yep, Dokan Cloud comes with its own page builder. You can use this builder to tweak your marketplace just the way you want. If you’ve ever used Elementor or a similar page builder before, you’ll find it a breeze to use because it’s designed with the same layout.

3. User-friendly Product Management

Dokan Cloud makes it easy to sell all sorts of products in your marketplace, whether they’re physical items you ship out or digital downloads like ebooks or software.

Both you (the admin) and your vendors can easily add new products. Just provide details like the product name, description, and photos to showcase your items beautifully.

For a clean and easy-to-browse marketplace, Dokan Cloud lets you add things like:

  • Attributes and Variations: Perfect for products that come in different sizes, colors, or materials.
  • Brands and Categories: This helps shoppers find exactly what they’re looking for.

Dokan Cloud even has a built-in SEO tool to help your products rank higher in search engines. By adding relevant keywords and descriptions, you can attract more customers and boost your sales.

4. Subscription Plans for Vendors

Dokan Cloud gives you, the admin, the power to create different vendor plans. This means you can set up your marketplace so vendors pay based on the features they need.

These subscription plans offer vendors a structured way to access various features and tools within the marketplace platform. You can set subscription plans by setting different levels of access and giving vendors specific permissions based on their chosen subscription tier.

5. Easy Shipping and Tax Management

Shipping and taxes can be a pain for any marketplace, but Dokan Cloud makes them a breeze!

Shipping management for vendors:

  • Custom Profiles: Create different shipping options based on your needs (price, location, product type).
  • Happy Customers: Offer flexible shipping options to keep your customers satisfied.

Tax Features for Admin

  • Easy Setup: Dokan Cloud helps you set tax rules based on location (country, state) to follow local regulations.
  • Complete Control: Manage different tax types (compound, zip code specific, shipping tax, digital product tax) to fit your business needs.

Dokan Cloud keeps things simple with clear tools for both vendors and admins. This ensures a smooth operation for your marketplace and keeps everyone happy!

6. Live Chat Integration

Did you know over 60% of customers are more likely to come back to a store with live chat? That’s why Dokan Cloud makes it easy for vendors to chat with customers directly.

Dokan Cloud integrates with Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, the apps your customers already use every day. This means vendors can:

  • Answer customer questions quickly and easily.
  • Offer real-time support to close more sales.
  • Build stronger relationships with personalized conversations.

7. Email Integration

Dokan Cloud seamlessly integrates with Mailchimp, a top email marketing platform, streamlining customer communication for order confirmations and signups.

Vendors can utilize Mailchimp’s powerful automation and marketing tools to send personalized emails efficiently. With Dokan Cloud’s Mailchimp integration, they can also send welcoming emails to new signups to enhance engagement.

8. SMS Integration

We mentioned Mailchimp for email marketing, but Dokan Cloud goes a step further! It also integrates with Twilio, a leading platform for text message marketing.

Using this SMS integration, you can-

  • Important Updates: Send order confirmations, delivery notifications, and reminders.
  • Special Offers: Promote sales and new products directly to customers’ mobiles.
  • Stay Connected: Reach customers where they are for faster and more personal communication.

9. Store Analytics

Understanding customer behavior is crucial for enhancing the performance of an online marketplace. That’s why Dokan Cloud seamlessly integrates with Google Analytics 4, a robust analytics platform, to provide valuable insights into customer interactions on the website.

With this integration, both administrators and vendors can track various metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) related to customer behavior, including page views, session duration, bounce rates, and conversion rates.

10. Payment Integration

Dokan Cloud ensures smooth transactions by offering various payment methods, including PayPal, Stripe, and cash on delivery. This diverse range of options provides convenience and flexibility for customers, allowing them to choose the method that suits them best.

Customers can securely complete transactions using trusted payment gateways like PayPal or Stripe, which offer robust security measures and seamless integration for a hassle-free checkout experience.

For those who prefer paying upon delivery, Dokan Cloud supports cash on delivery, allowing customers to finalize purchases and pay in person when their orders are delivered.

11. Vendor Payout

Getting paid should be easy, and Dokan Cloud makes it that way for both you (the admin) and your vendors.

Flexible Payouts for Vendors:

  • Manual Payouts: Vendors can request transfers whenever they need, giving them control over their finances.
  • Automatic Payouts (set it and forget it!): Vendors can set up a schedule to receive their earnings automatically, saving them time and hassle.

  • Basic: Starts at $69 per month for 100 vendors.
