quite a long time and finally, it is published and hopefully, it will be useful.
ACF For Dokan, will allow admin to create custom fields using the most popular plugin called
ACF (Advance Custom Field). When as an admin user, you are creating a custom field for
the product post type, default that custom field values can be entered or edited by the admin
user from the WordPress admin panel.

field named Vendor Edits Allowed? If you switch it to Yes, the custom field created will be
visible in the vendor dashboard while they are creating a new product or editing any existing
product. Isn’t that easy enough?

simple, you can use the function of ACF:
