How can we improve WooCommerce?

WooCommerce Multi-site Shopping Cart Feature

I think it would be super if there was a way to have a shopping cart feature that worked across a Wordpress Multi-site installation. What I mean by this is that a user could add a product on say shop1.domain.com and then navigate to shop2.domain.com and again add a product and then at anytime check out and pay. This would be a super powerful feature and something I think alot of people would have an interest in. Anyone else want to join in on this. MarketPress here http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/e-commerce has this feature but really woocommerce considering the themes available and its ambitious growth - well I'd just love to see it happen :)

        Did have a specific questions/concern though that may relate more to multisite in general?

        If I was to do a fresh install of Wordpress and manage unique blogs on multiple subfolders, I could tell search engines via robots.txt to ignore certain subfolders when crawling my main site, preventing what may be considered duplicate content issues. Does multisite do this by default?

        Sorry, I am on board.This forum is a bit confusing because I enter my email address and it says anonymous. I guess just add me clay (dot) kad @ gmail.com. <-- don't wanna get spam and I know this forum shows up in search results.

        Thank you for your interest. If you log in here (you're currently an anonymous), I could add you to the list of potential buyers.

        I'm totally on board with this. I don't see how to sign up or show my interest but I want this plugin.

        I need it because I'm trying to target specific countries with unique content. I want to do a /uk subfolder and target uk clients with uk products, a uk phone number, uk shipping details... same thing with /ca for canada, /au for australia, etc.

        When you go to your WooThemes settings, you can only enter one phone number. So contact details are unique to each install of Wordpress.

        I know I could do fresh install of a worpdress on every single subfolder but that is a mess, having to log in and out of each to check orders and maintain products. It would be great if it could share some aspects and not others, which is why I'm so excited about multisire.

        Totally on board... looking for a link.

        hi can anyone please suggest me that i have already installed a woocommerce plugin in a multisite and ready to use but i want to use my woocommerce plugin to create shopping pages in network area and makes it display on all its sites.

        Hi Matt, I am not a developer on the WooCommerce plugin but you can ask questions/make suggestion on the issue list. This is a use case I am after and possibly where Anton Andriyevskyy can slot in because I do know this will not come out of the box with the next release.

        https://github.com/woothemes/woocommerce/issues?milestone=22&state=open

        Will need to log in with a GIT account.

        SixfootJames - Will the feature of controlling multiple shopping sites from one backend be standard in the update of WooCommerce when it releases? Or is this an extension that we would need to purchase?

        Thanks!

        Please email Anton (the developer below) at x.meglio@gmail.com so he can start custom development on the plugin. He needs enough users to email him so that he can get a good idea of the amount of people willing to purchase the plugin. We need this ASAP!!

      • SixfootJamesSixfootJames commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No, there actually is a great gap for you Anton. :) My use case is very specific so there is a gap for you to extend this functionality. I will email you about this.

        LOL... everyone wants to build an etsy clone. It's much more complicated since every store will be a self-standing site and won't have integrated payment methods. That would require completely changing the plugin. Also very tough to create clones of an etsy site unless your site has a huge volume of traffic.

        I'd be happy if Multisite worked the same way as it does on any other plugin working on an individual blog. I'm not sure why it doesn't work at all. It can only be enabled "network" and not as a plugin on an individual site. Would like to just get basic functionality one would expect as a regular plugin which can be installed on a per site basis in a multisite installation.

        Hi Anton,

        I am interested in Multi-site Shopping Cart Feature for my upcoming project. I would like to have one common Checkout for two of my shopping sites.

        Please add me to the list of people interested in getting this plugin. Can you please provide rough time regarding the readiness of the plugin? This will be definitely help me to make some progress on my project.

        Thanks in Advance.
