      Hi Devesh Trying to get Dokan to function with xadapter and the UPS plugin from Pluginhive is now a multi-week exercise in futility. I have NEVER spent so much time getting nowhere on a project that is now weeks behind while I lose one day after another going back and forth with tech support (mainly the UPS plugin-hive and with an 11 hour time difference.

      The video above is informative for a single site store but nobody has anything out there about setting it up in Dokan and having the combination work. What if you have a vendor who doesn’t use FedX? One would think they could simply create and select a shipping Free or Flat Rate method. They can but they will not be available on the frontend for a customer. Calculate shipping is the only option and then returns an error that the address can not be found. Even after using the exclude class function in the plugin.

      Note that the FEDX example in the video ONLY shows FEDX rates. Try to set up a product class for free or flat rate shipping, apply it to a product and see what happens. That doesn’t work either. This morning I read on the X adapter plugin set up that another $200 /yr plugin is required. Curiously the AND
      – WooCommerce Vendors Pro plugins isn’t revealed anywhere else on the Xadapter site or in the documentation referencing Dokan. Since WCVPro is a competitor of Dokan, why would you do this?

      Hello,

      We do not have any official integration with third-party Indian shipping solution but Xadapter has few shipping plugins integration as we have mentioned on this blog post. By default, dokan is using zone-based shipping like WooCommerce on the frontend for the vendor.

      Thanks 🙂

    Are there any shipping plug ins for USPS that will work with the Dokan Pro plug in? USPS offers the most competitive shipping rates for small items such as clothing.

    Thanks

      Hi Jessica,

      Thanks for your query. As far as I know, there is no direct shipping plugin for USPS that works with Dokan Pro yet. We might plan for it in the future though. But at the moment Dokan pro has integration with Xadapter and it has UPS Shipping plugin for WooCommerce that support Dokan Pro. So you can try that out from Xadapter

      Thanks
