How to create a grouped product

Dokan Multi Vendor Documentation

Suppose you want to sell a music album. But you want to sell different tracks and visuals along with the album as a whole. Then you need to create a Grouped product.

A group product is a new option in the Dokan plugin similar to WooCommerce. In order to create a group product you need to be sure that you have the following :


  1. PHP 5.6 or later
  2. MySQL 5.6 or later
  3. WordPress
  4. WooCommerce
  5. Dokan Lite
  6. Dokan Pro

If you have the following you are good to go.

Step 1: Create Parent Group Product

Now, a vendor needs to login to his dashboard. And create a new product.

Navigate to Vendor dashboard→ Product→ Add new

The product category must be group product. So, select Group Product from the Product Type drop-down menu.

Remember a group product is a parent product so there is no price field and also you need to select a category. If you have no category, please create one (only Admins can create product categories).

Step 2: Create child product:

As this is the child product the category of the product must be as same the parent product. Also, this product needs to be hidden from the catalog. Under the other option, there is a visibility field. You need to set it hidden  and save the product as shown in the screenshot:

Following step 2 and step 3 you can link more product to the parent product. And all of the products.
