There are various platforms claiming to provide the best services when it comes to trap the new entrepreneur, condemn them to pay for the hidden and forced charges on the later stages or else shut down the business when unable to generate revenue to pay the debts from either the bank or against the money taken from the market stakeholders. Platforms like WooCommerce and Shopify don’t even provide the provision to create a multi vendor eCommerce store in any of their packages, be it the prime one. To incorporate such changes, a subscriber has to switch to the third-party service providers or the third-party extensions. This process could be cumbersome, resource and money intensive, and could be disastrous to your business if not handled carefully.
Platforms like WooCommerce have few of the third-party extensions to let the subscriber incorporate multi vendor capabilities and also to do associated configuration including the timely payouts and refunds to the vendors and end consumers respectively. Dokan is one such plugin that comes with many fall back including the one fact that it is closed source and all the eCommerce extensive and essential features are available in the cream version only which comes at sky-touching prices. Moreover, the freemium version of Dokan has very little to offer, thus making a blind spot for the subscriber to predict or analyze whether this platform will be fruitful in respect to future rising demands and switch in use cases.
