Activating & Deactivating Dokan Modules

Dokan Multi Vendor Documentation

As a full-fledged multivendor system, Dokan comes up with 27 modules. It takes a few seconds to activate and deactivate a Dokan module.

Newly Introduced ‘Modules’

Previously known as extensions or add-ons, Dokan now has premium and free Modules in newly transformed packages that vastly improve the user experience. The Modules work the same way as the extensions did except that they are much easier to manage. You can now view and handle all your add-ons/extensions from a single page. You will also get live updates for all the modules from now directly from within the plugin. And also no more manual downloads and installation!

Premium Modules


To access Modules, navigate to wp-admin->Dokan->Modules.

Previously, each extension had to be purchased separately and uploaded in zip files, and then install. But now you can simply go to the in-built Modules page to find all the modules in your package.
