Dokan is a multi-vendor marketplace. It is usually good for small mom-and-pop shops with less than 1000 items.

SOCi is a fantastic tool for a franchise business because it provides the ability to post in bulk while also posting localized content. So, you can share the same basic content across all of your locations, but SOCi's tagging system inserts a location's phone number or website for each individual location. This helps create a localized feel and personalized touch -- but you only schedule one post, making it easy and efficient to localize content in mass posting. This principle applies to paid ads as well. Because of these features, SOCi may not be the best platform for companies with just one location

There are some aspects of the scheduling of posts that could be more user friendly for the less tech-savvy users.

The support needs to be improved as some of the support representatives do not seem to understand the client's request and keep sending canned responses.

We have not had to contact support so there is nothing to say in response to this question. We are sure that if we needed to contact them we would be able to get any issues resolved quickly
