Dokan mobile app is a great feature that helps your customers buy their products using their smartphone app rather than logging onto your multi-vendor site using the web browser.
Please note that Dokan Mobile APP works only with the Dokan Paid Version
How To Setup the Mobile App?
First off, you will need to purchase the Dokan Pro, set up your store, and then you need to purchase the Dokan Mobile App.
After the purchase, you will see a new section on the My Account page of your dashboard called Mobile App. There you will get a form with some information you need to fill up. Once you fill-up the form and submit, our mobile app team will contact you for further assistance.
Installing the Dokan Mobile App Plugin
As an admin, you will have to log onto your WP Admin Dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Upload the Dokan Mobile app plugin like any other WordPress plugin.
Configuring the Dokan Mobile App Plugin
Next up, you will have to configure the plugin so that your Dokan multivendor website becomes usable in conjunction with the mobile app.

Go to the WP Admin Dashboard > Dokan > Mobile App > Settings (Tab) > Scroll down to the Braintree Credential.
Save the changes.

Once you have those PayPal sandbox API credentials, enter them in your Braintree sandbox:
- Log into your Braintree sandbox Control Panel
- Navigate to Settings > Processing
3. Now, navigate to the Payment Methods > PayPal > Click Link Sandbox
4. Enter the Email address, Client ID, and Client Secret for your PayPal sandbox test account
