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 :)
Plugin to turn woocommerce into a user marketplace, preferable compatible with buddypress.
We would be very interested if you could do something like this
1) Parent site is the main site of the network. It will contain all products entered into the child sites by their administrators.
2) Child sites have a different domain and theme to the parent site.
3) The child sites would have their own administrators who could upload products here at the child site level into their own categories or ones we set in the parent site.
Is this possible?
Basically, I would have different sites with different products and when I add a product into one of them it automatically shows in my parent site. The child sites will need their own shipping options.
You have a guaranteed buyer here! I would easily pay $200 for this plugin (let me know if we can work something out ;)
My goal is to have 2 stores, one for retail customers, and one for wholesale customers, both under different names and design, but using the same theme. Anyone can visit the retail site, but the wholesale site needs to be password protected or restricted to specific users. The features I need are below:
- Integrated inventory between all sites (If the same product is purchased on 2 different domains, I need my main inventory to reflect 2 sales of that item)
- I need the customers for each store separated (for mailing lists etc.)
- The ability to have all products in one main list, but create 'Categories' so that only certain products can be displayed on one or both websites.
I would absolutely love to see these features... Please have something for us soon, there is a massive need for this plugin. Thank you!
Am totally new to the whole Multi-Site and Woocommerce world...but now that I've spent a week delving into both...I would LOVE to see a Marriage of the two.
I've got my products on one of my multi-site subdomains and would love to be able to have access to the WooCommerce Shortcode for those products on the main domain.
Anton, what we need is a multi-store feature like americommerce (hosted cart) offers and a multi-vendor feature like cs-cart and ixxo cart. If Woocommerce wants to be the leader in WP ecommerce, then they need user-friendly, functional, multi-store and multi-vendor features with drop-shipping, affiliate support, mobile friendly, robust shipping features already built in as an out of the box feature. I would pay for this plugin, it is so needed to keep up with today's technology!
i would be very much interested in this plugin. Any chance we could have a beta within the next 2-3 weeks?
Thank you for answering my question below RE: using woocommerce with multi-site.
Your plugin idea seems useful....Enabling people to manage a network of sites from one interface...I'd be interested in checking that out.
What I'm wondering is if I can setup a network of similar sites, for my clients. Each client would only have access permissions to their individual install..say on a subdomain...using woocommerce.
That's why I referenced WPMU and if you follow that link you'll see that they do mention that capability. Just wondering if this is baked into woocommerce as well.

100% agree. If woo can do multisite, multicurrency - all all others features, from one admin, just like I have now fro my magento community stores, I would switch to woo commerce. Magento is great, but not as simple as using wordpress. Thanks, Kevin

a lot of votes for this idea have been made, why this is still not possible?

I would like to be able to use Woo for a mall, similar to Iscripts Multisite (http://www.iscripts.com/multicart/), whether it uses WP multisites or not. Hand-Made-in-Michigan (http://www.mi-made.com/), an Etsy-style multi-vendor mall for Michigan crafts, is the best implimentation of Iscripts Multisite I've seen. Woo has much more power under the hood than Iscripts, and the Mirjah Payment Gateway puts it way over the top, so it's a shame that Woo can't do something similar out of the box. I'm not a developer. In fact, I'm an ecommerce newbie, so I need out-of-the-box solutions.
YOu need something would allow you set a different currency for every domain? Not sure how to help. Also if it dos help you for me to buy your coupon plugin on ThemeForest, i will. Not sure how it works or if it will help me, but if the funding helps this project along I will do.
This doesn't intersect with being able to select default currency for every domain.
Henryk, I'm currently trying to setup plugins making business, but until it is not set I cannot spend lots of time on it - a hour ir two daily plus weekends.
You could help by spreading the info about or buying my first Woo extension: http://bit.ly/coupon-locker
I'll release the very first. Ersion as soon as it is usable to some extent - at least having different products, categories and menu per domain. Otherwise it would look just incomplete.
I'm almost sure CodeCanyon will underestimate all the engineering which is taking place this dide - the plugin is not easy to build - so chances are I'll build a separate website for it and will sell it for ~$79 per one installation. But I'd be happy if discussion was more alive here, so I would know there are at least 30..50 potential buyers right from the start. There are so many voices for this feature but when it comes to having a real plugin opportunity, I don't see enough feedback and this makes me doubt.
Yes what you want to programm is very good! You should consult with the programming team of WooCommerce. Your ideas should proceed exactly in the core, such as the REST API Extension in 2.1 and 2.2. We need your ideas like:
- language per domain
- override currency and price for domain
- integrate with wp multilanguage plugin
- probably constrain categories to domains as well
- constrain posts/pages to domain
- allow to use different menu for every domain
Where we could by the first Version? 0.9 beta

I don't know MarketPress. I had been a subscriber of WPMU but to be fair I didn't like their plugins at all (just my personal opinion) - the way it's made inside, from programmer's point of view. But anyhow, I don't see how it relates to WooCommerce at all - it looks like their plugin is not aimed for Woo. Right?
Ah, Ok thanks anton....I wonder how it differs form the WPMU MarketPress version...On this page it shows that you can basically create a network, similar to Shopify for example.
Yes, Ken, currently it's possible with a standard WooCommerce over WordPress multisite - that is what you get by default, completely separate stores for every child blog. And that is why I'm developing the Multiple Domains plugin - to allow for the opposite, i.e. one single WordPress blog to host the same store under multiple domains, restricting products, categories and tags to specific domains, but managing everything from within a single backend.
Is it possible to use multi-site to create a network of similar ecommerce stores that have separate users, seperate ssl certificates and checkout....Basically to create a network of individual stores for my clients?
Thanks for trying to put this together Anton.
Would like to help in anyway that I can. Not sure what are you are looking for, but I'm not a programmer. If there is a multi-currency extension that you need somebody to invest in for this project --- let me know where one is for sale and I will gladly buy it.
Anyone can give me Multi-Currency WooCommerce Extension so I could make multi-domain plugin compatible with it?
Update: Products filter by domain has been implemented:
