A Little Bit About The Monster’s Award & The WP Weekly Award
Before we get into the details of the awards, let’s increase our knowledge about both of these awards, shall we?
The Monster’s Award
The Monster’s Award is organized by Template Monster. They started back in 2021 and have been continuing since. They give out awards in 22 different plugin categories including Maintenance, WooCommerce, Backup and migration, Blogs, Booking and Appointment, Forms plugins, etc.
Market research is conducted to identify popular plugins for each category. Additionally, the public can nominate their preferred brands.
After receiving a great response from the audience in 2022, they made the event in 2023 even bigger and better.
Dokan was competing in the WooCommerce category with other popular plugins like CartFlows, and ShopEngine. The competition was neck in neck as it came right down to the wire with CartFlows.
Dokan edged out with 24% of the vote while CartFlows got 23% of the vote. Dokan was declared the winner as the best WooCommerce plugin.
The WP Weekly Awards
The WP Weekly Awards is also a prestigious award that is given to the WordPress community. This year was the best-ever award with a tremendous response from the WordPress community. With a total of 5859 Votes across 27 categories.
Dokan was competing in the eCommerce category. There Dokan got the Silver Title with 249 votes. Dokan edged out WP Easy Pay, another popular eCommerce plugin.

Dokan enjoyed double victory with double sweetness.
Dokan Multivendor: One of the Best Multivendor Plugins in WordPress
Dokan initially started as a theme, but in 2015, we made a strategic shift by launching the Dokan plugin. This move proved to be groundbreaking in the WordPress industry, causing a significant impact.
The Dokan plugin, currently boasting over 60,000 active installations and garnering 592 five-star reviews on the WordPress repository, has become a prominent solution.
With Dokan, you can set up a marketplace akin to industry giants like Amazon, Etsy, or Flipkart in just 30 minutes. All that’s required is a WordPress domain and hosting, along with the installation of the Dokan plugin – which, by the way, also takes care of the WooCommerce installation process.
This streamlined approach simplifies the entire process, allowing users to create and launch their online marketplace swiftly and efficiently.
