    • Limit Coupons to New Customers Only

      It would be really useful if we could limit a coupon so that it can only be used if the user is a new customer.

      For example, in our store, we are implementing a refer a friend system where an existing customer can refer a friend to us, then both of them get a discount. The discount should only be given if the referred customer is new to us.

      This could be achieved by establishing if the user has made any previous purchases. If they are not logged in it would be useful to then check if any orders have…

      • Creating products from an external database with barcodes

        The idea is to create an extension/service which allow administrators to just add products to their store using the product barcode.

        Workflow:

        1- The admin visit the Add New page
        2- Write the barcode number in a field
        3- WooCommerce searches for that number in a database
        4- It returns a product with all its data (title, description, variations, attributes, prices, etc)
        5- The admin add it to its site and edit it, if needed.
        6- The admin choose if he wants to update the product data online (if changes have been made)
        7- The admin publish the product on…

        • Add an akismet approval queue

          It would be great if you guys integrated with akismet on registration forms and had an "approval queue" in the admin for those found to be spam so if they were legit you can mark as ham. As it stands now there is no way to prevent or throttle malicious signups. You can apply with any info you want and there is no way to protect against that. Bots can cause chaos in short order.

          We historically would use a captcha but the problem with captchas is they are 99% breakable now, our own wordpress login captcha was beatable using…

          • Show product variations on shop page

            I would love to have the possibility to show product variations (with their own image) as separate products on the product listing pages (main shop page, category page, etc). That way visitors would be able to see the right product images when they use the layered nav filters.

            Let's say I have a product that is available in both blue and white. I dont want to create two separate simple products, as I want the customer to be able to see and choose between the available colors on the product page. So I create a variable product using a color…

              • Better repeating "costs" dates for WooBookings

                For instance, it's very common for a hotel to have peak season and off season prices, along with weekday and weekend prices.

                Here's an example:

                Off Season Weekdays: $65
                Off Season Weekends: $80

                Peak Season Weekdays: $88
                Peak Season Weekends: $110

                As you can see, the increments across seasons AND weekends vary. Currently bookings cannot accommodate this custom pricing structure and I must custom enter each peak weekend differentiator, which ends up being 35 custom date ranges!

                Ideally, if I could first select a date range, then select repeating days within that range all would be solved. Google calendar is…

                • Make columns sortable in stock report

                  It would be nice if we could sort the columns in our stock reports based on the values contained within... For instance, imagine I'm looking at the low stock report, and I want to see which products are lowest and needing restocked soonest... Currently, I have to go through each of the 20+ pages of the report in order to find them manually. It would be nice if I could just click the "units in stock" heading at the top of the table and they would sort ASC or DESC for me automatically.

                  • Redirect Customer on checkout based on product purchased.

                    I would like to suggest an improvement for the customer journey

                    After a successful purchase it would be good to have the ability to direct them to a custom checkout page, also to have the ability for cart abandonment

                    I know this exsists on a cart level I am talking on a product level so each product will have a specific thank you page that we could add in the product description / meta data. We would enter the URL of the thank you and abandon cart to direct people from that item.

                    I don't know how this would work…

                    • More SEO Friendly Permalink Structure (Same Product Category Base & Permalink Base)

                      A pretty permalink structure would allow:

                      /shop/ -> Full Products Index page
                      /shop/product-category/ -> Product Category Index Page
                      /shop/product-category/product-name/ -> Product Permalink Page

                      ... in the same format that a user would backtrack via breadcrumbs

                      Currently any pages using the same "product-category-base" and "product-permalink-base" (ie. /shop/) results in a 404 error ...

                      Can we get this fixed?

                        • Delay Start of Subscription

                          I wondered if there was a way to offer an option to delay the start of a subscription? I want to market my subscription as a present, which means the subscription should be available from the time the present is given not from when it is purchased.

                              Product Vendor Reporting currently is not really useful if you have 20 or 30 vendors and you are selling regularly.

                              1. When a vendor themselves is logged into the frontend of the website and looking at their My-Account page and you have [product_vendors_total_earnings] and [product_vendors_month_earnings] on the page you can see some simple reports on the screen with 3 columns as you know. The first crucial column to add to this is Date, this should be on screen here in these simple reports as vendors need to know immediately the date of the order, right now they do not know…

                                Hi,

                                I know WooCommerce is not fully automated when comes to refund. however when using Account Funds, its not related to any gateway. So I believe the refund option can be added without much outside/payment gateway related complexities.

                                Where is what I want to see :

                                when a order refunded, the amount should go to customer fund. When the order was paid using different mode other than account fund via paypal or credit card also should go to customer "account fund", let the amount to remain as customer credit.

                                we can manage the return manually (mostly wont happen in my…

                                • Select an end date for "Duration" from a calendar, instead of number of days in Bookings extension

                                  Option to select the Booking end date from a calendar instead of counting and entering the duration manually.

                                  In the use case of item rentals or room bookings that can span multiple days, weeks or even months, the site visitor currently would have to look at a calendar and count up the number of days and make that numeric entry. This could be prone to error.

                                  A working example would be any major hotel chain or car rental website, where you select your check in and check out dates from calendars.

                                  • Resource Categories for Woocommerce Booking

                                    The resources tab could be better. You should be able to add different categories as resources with different pricing.

                                    Example Hotel:
                                    Roomsize: junior, superior, president suite
                                    Food: Breakfast, semi or full service
                                    Airport Transit: yes/no

                                    Like that… would be much more easy to adapt the products with special services…

                                    • Product Notes / Comments

                                      It would be great to see or have the option of having a comment/note section displayed on each Edit-Product Page in the Admin area. We are looking for a way to keep track of what edits have occurred on a product page and if it could be integrated on the Quick Edit page as well, that would be even sweeter.

                                      • Calendar view show persons left / right in addition to duration up / down.

                                        On the back end of the system within the calendar view I would love it if I could quickly not only see that I had a booking, but also that the calendar view would show the number of persons within a booking. My business takes a lot of deposits and can handle up to 60 people at once, so rather than a reservation just spanning up/down for the duration of the visit they could easily also span left/right to show the number of persons. This would greatly help me staff for the day & manage the capacity of my business!
