What is the Dokan Seller Badge?

The Dokan Seller Badge is a premium module of the Dokan multivendor plugin. It allows you to create and assign badges to your marketplace vendors based on their marketplace activity.

As a marketplace admin, you can use these badges to:

  • Recognize vendors for their achievements
  • Encourage them to continue their good work, and
  • Help customers make informed purchasing decisions.

Seller badges also serve as a visual sign that represents a seller’s trustworthiness and credibility. As an admin, you can highlight sellers who consistently deliver exceptional service and maintain high customer satisfaction ratings. This approach will motivate your sellers to strive for excellence.

On the other hand, when customers see that a seller has earned particular badges, they gain confidence to purchase from that vendor. It increases their (and yours) brand reputation.
