  1. Free Shipping override to all other shipping methods

    Im using woocommerce's ups plugin, and have it set so there's a fallback of $15 shipping charge which would apply if no UPS shipping option can be determined.

    However i also have a FREE SHIPPING setting which says that orders over $150 ship for free.

    I believe this I have in common with 75% of ecommerce sites out there.

    Problem: If i add a product to the cart that has no weight setting, UPS is unable to give an estimate for shipping it. Which is understandable.

    However, if this item exceeds the free shipping threshold, I would expect that would…

    • have full width layout (as per canvas) available for all themes

      All my sites are full width. If te individual pages and posts can be full width, and the theme options.php can be overriden to enable this default then it shouldnt be too hard to add full width as a default for all the themes that support this

      Sidebars are distracting and take up valuable screen estate for traditional website s made with your themes

        • Ability to show meta fields in the Order detail page

          I would like to have an option to show meta information in the Order page (for example, a product serial number or an expiration date of a service). This info resides in a custom field.

            • Profit report

              As a shop owner it is always good to know what is happening in your shop. The reports made by woocommerce do help with a clear view of the shop status. We thought it could even be better. As the reports show the total turnover it doesn't show the actual provit. Is it an idea to add the following?
              As profit = product price ex tax - product purchase price ex tax
              - Add an extra field in the product page for purchase price (exlude tax)
              - Add a report which shows the total amount of money for the sold…

              • For the Cause - make the post title or woocommerce category show up in subheader

                it would be great if the templates for the WooCommerce category pages showed the category title in the subheader, rather than just "shop.” And for the blog, the blog title was display in the top as an option, rather than "blog"

                • Monitor customer coupon usage

                  Hi, we offer many types of coupon to different customers. However i notice that there are limitation to who uses which coupons.

                  Hence it will be great if i can monitor who have used the coupons that we issued to them

                  • Allow Multiple Plugins / Child-Themes to Add Theme Options

                    Reference this article: http://support.woothemes.com/entries/22521107-Customizing-theme-options-through-a-child-theme?flash_digest=de2105f89758d8b2ecf4735cfe3b303d9dde25c9

                    The current method works fine for a single child-theme or plugin. When multiple independent plugins each define function: woo_options_add() the site crashes.

                    A better design - maybe using hooks - would resolve the potential conflict issue.

                    • Subscriptions - Recurring payments option for clients

                      It would be very nice if there was an option at checkout page to allow a client decide whether he prefers to activate recurring payments or not.

                      • Woocommerce Cart (Save Gravity Forms Options)

                        I noticed that there was no way to EDIT any of the GRAVITY FORMS OPTIONS once viewing the WooCommerce cart....for example - say customer changes his mind while viewing the cart - wants a different color of frame for art print (I sell art prints btw) - clicking on the cart thumbnail sends you back to the single product page with DEFAULT values (NONE of of the GRAVITY FORMS OPTIONS previously chosen show up) - my idea / suggestion - allow the options to be repopulated upon revisiting the single product page - just makes sense to me from usability…

                            • Send customer order confirmation emails after an initially failed payment attempt

                              Currently if a customer's attempt to checkout fails due to a payment error, and they decide to reattempt payment with the 'pay order' function (available from my account or from the failed payment page), they are not sent an order confirmation email.

                              This is particularly an issue when there are downloadable products.

                              Suggest adding the following triggers to class-wc-email-customer-processing-order.php:

                              add_action( 'woocommerce_order_status_failed_to_processing_notification', array( $this, 'trigger' ) );
                              add_action( 'woocommerce_order_status_failed_to_on-hold_notification', array( $this, 'trigger' ) );

                                • It would be useful if you could have the option of a round corner box background just in the content area in full width option

                                  Currently you offer a boxed theme option, but this doesn't work with the full width style in Canvas. What would be useful is to have an option that allows us to add a boxed content background when in full width that can be shown with or without a shadow as well.

                                  • Newsletters - WooCommerce Subscribers

                                    We developed a free extension plugin to link up WooCommerce plugin with our premium Newsletter plugin.

                                    After contacting WooThemes support, they suggested that I post it here on the ideas board and if people like it, they might list it on their site.

                                    It captures email/newsletter subscribers from the WooCommerce plugin checkout procedure into the Newsletter plugin.

                                    See it here: http://tribulant.com/extensions/view/42/woocommerce-subscribers

                                    Let me know if you have any questions.

                                    • Add a metabox listing categories and tags so that a user can list only specific posts on a page.

                                      When creating sites, clients often want several types of pages that show specific posts with a tag or category. For example, in the past I have been asked for:

                                      - A 'News' page which only lists posts with the category 'News'
                                      - A 'Jobs / Vacancies / Volunteering’s' page which only lists posts with the category 'Jobs'.
                                      - A ‘Case Studies’ page which only lists posts with the category ‘Case.

                                      I have seen other themes a meta box within the page edit screen, where the user can tick select an option to show posts after the content. The posts are…

                                        Hello, i have several questions for this plugin. Is this plugin or theme allow us to sell video streaming? Not video downloading but video streaming as in pay per view or pay per watch? Not subscription. Just pay and then watch a video? I would also want to know if my customers would know that I use this plugin. Thanks.

                                        • Option to adjust the Business sliders hight in theme options.

                                          Please give back the Option to adjust the Business sliders hight in theme options. Now we are stuck with a fixed hight and so far the custom code to overwrite the fixed hight does not work. Why was this great option taken out of the themes options I wonder?
