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 :)

        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!!

        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.

        I am interested in being able to build a shopping marketplace of the likes of Etsy, for example, with WooCommerce and WP Multisite. Any chance at all that such functionality is developed in the near future?
