General Ideas

Got a WooCommerce idea? We have a separate forum for WooCommerce.

How can we improve WooThemes?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Introduce declinations of a same product

    Hi voters !

    Since I'm not an English speaker ninja, please comment if you want me to clarify my google-translationed suggestion !

    Let's say you sell printed tote-bags. Actually, you are likely to sell :
    - 1 product (the bag)
    - with 1 attribute (printed pattern)
    - and tens of variation (Cute kittens, Dragon, Bear riding a motorcycle, Velociraptor etc.)

    Fact : Woocommerce supports variations. But what about UX - and conversion in fine - if the client need to deal with a huge drop down list with no visual of the variations? I'm not mentioning the 'Tote Bag' category…

    • Google Drive Storage

      Hi, I would like an extension exactly like Amazon S3 Storage, but works with Google Drive instead of Amazon S3 Storage, or better yet, lets the Wordpress site admin to choose what storage (Google Drive, Amazon Storage, Drop Box, etc.) they want to use.

      • Bookings plugin for tradesmen

        the current bookings plugin is good when people come to you

        but many businesses provide a service where they come to you.

        for example I am a childrens entertainer who works all over Sydney Australia- sometimes I am booked for 1 hour some times 1.5 hours and sometimes 2 hours and then sometimes I have to drive 1.5 hours to get to a show. but the current booking plugin only allows for people coming to you.

        there needs to be a way to incorporate travelling to the next booking somehow (don't ask me I am just an ideas man)

        When…

        • no page reload on add to cart action

          Hi,

          Reloading the page after adding to cart is long (and boring) and website seems to be slow (in the mind of customers) compared to ajax add to cart...

          I think woocommerce would benefit a lot from a add to cart button that would NOT reload the page.

          Help me guys !

          • url and category and product url shortened

            Killer idea !

            - make the children category with url that does not include the parent category => better SEO (like not http://www.xxx..com/category/shoes/sneakers but category/sneakers) and even remove the “product/” and “category/” from urls would help SEO by shortening the urls (I know that wordpress is the problem in that case)

              • Set currency on a per product / per event basis.

                For international events in different countries, it would be great to be able to set the currency on a per-event basis.

                • product page shipping estimated

                  hi guys .. i read some ideas here in this forum … but no one that asking something for ecommerce site! I think that is very important today to give a customer one feed-back about estimated shipping cost and time delivery! I'll give you here an example link: http://www.hobbywow.com/en-syma-s6-3ch-mini-rc-helicopter-with-gyro-rtf-p237144.htm then click on shipping tab .. and see..

                  so this is a good ecommerce service for your customer! This is i think the most important thing. If there is already this type of ability please let me know!

                  • Subscriptions courtesy notification before auto renewal

                    In the case of customers being on auto renewal, it may be polite business practice to notify customers a few days before hand that their credit card is about to be charged.

                    • group buying

                      I would like to manage “group buying” with WooCommerce. That is, having the possibility for different users to make their own orders (or “pre-orders”) for a specific product. All the different orders will be managed as a single deal. If the “group order” reaches a minimum quantity, a special discount will be applied for all the participants. If not, they will pay the product at the standard price.

                        • Set order total discounts at product level

                          Dynamic Pricing - We have purchased this plugin with the intention of using it to create a percentage discount on specific products when $10+ has been added to cart. I have since found out that this order total discount can only be applied to our catalogue of products as a whole, and not at a product level. I thought this would have been a fairly simple discount for us to implement by using this plugin.

                          • Three steps plugin to create his own website

                            Wordpress is simple to use when you know the admin and the different menus. But when you first use it it is difficult to know where things are and how to use them.

                            I suggest that you create a plugin that allows a new user to create his website in three easy steps. This means that wordpress is already installed.
                            1. create your user account
                            2. change your logo and header image
                            3. personalize your default page layout (color and font)

                            That's is. Now the user can create contents and promote his page to his friends and customers.

                            • WooDojo - Instagram Display Specific Tag Option

                              I used to use the "Instapress" plug-in (now outdated) to display only images with specified tags from my Instagram account. This was a great option and I have not seen this anywhere else. Great for automatically keeping imagery fresh throughout site using the tags to pull relevant images.

                                    • Use check api to retrieve order info from Software Add-on

                                      Even so its not documented, I can see there is a check api, which allows one to retrieve info about a license key.

                                      The problem is, the check requires the following info

                                      licence_key
                                      email
                                      product_id

                                      It would be really helpful if one could do a check request with just

                                      licence_key
                                      secret

                                      and then get the following info in return

                                      order_id (in case Sequential Order Numbers is installed it should return that number)
                                      email
                                      produkt_id / produkt_sku
                                      produkt_variation

                                      The idea is to use the Software Add-on extension to let Woocommerce handle the ordering and payment process and then send a license…

                                      • option to disable multiple shipping options per order in woocommerce

                                        Previous versions of WooCommerce only allowed single shipping methods per order, but since 2.1 Woocommerce allows for multiple shipping methods per order. At this time there is no option to disable multiple shipping methods. When you use a shipping plugin like Local Pickup Plus there are multiple shipping methods per order available. If you don't want to offer multiple shipping methods you need an option to disable this new feature.

                                        • Projects Plugin

                                          Allow the Projects Plugin to open up video in the lightbox. In my previous portfolio ive shown a lot of video work. Projects works great for still images but doesnt allow video.
