  1. 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.

      Also reference: http://support.woothemes.com/requests/169437#/satisfaction

      • 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' ) );

            • You should provide a simple child theme for Canvas. The tutorial located on this site doesn't generate a functional child theme.

              You should provide a simple child theme for Canvas. As simple as it's supposed to be, the tutorial located on this site doesn't generate a functional Canvas child theme. Canvas is one of your premiere themes, users shouldn't be required to pay for custom programming for a child theme.

              • 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?

                        • Smart Coupons - Additional Filter Types

                          Currently the Smart Coupons extension only allows inclusions and exclusions at the product and category levels. Depending on your setup, categories may not be a useful filter. Per product can be limiting or at least extremely time consuming if a coupon is meant to apply to many products.

                          A very useful addition, especially when generating large numbers of unique codes, would be inclusion/exclusion based off of things like tags, types (standard/digital/virtual/etc), and shipping classes.

                          • Subscription: Free trail without cc needed; ask for creditcard/paypal when free trail ends, not upfront

                            I'm using WooCommerce and Subscriptions to sell access to premium content. Currently its configured with a 30-day free trial. So users sign up, enter their credit card, and as long as they don't cancel before the end of the trial, we ping them.

                            I'd like to move the credit card entry to the end of the free trial. In other words, people would sign up, have access for 30 days, then have to enter their card to continue getting access. Is this an easy thing to do in WooCommerce, or do I need to do some work outside of WooCommerce…

                            • Woocommerce failed transaction notification or Redsys Gateway Improvement (Client info)

                              There's one tricky issue about online payments that are cancelled or do not end up succesfully: no info concerned which client failed to pay is transmitted to the shop so it's not possible to know which client did try to order something and failed to.
                              One way to solve that (among others) would be to to make customers fill the ""Ds_Merchant_Titular" field on the Redsys gateway so at least the client's name is sent to the credit card control panel and therefore to the shop tenant. That's not ideal since credit card owner may be different to the actual client's…

                              • Purchase all Variations

                                When using variable products within WooCommerce it would be useful to have an option to 'buy all' variations.

                                Though not useful for many kinds of variable products (like small, medium and large for example), I'm currently using this method to set up a series of dates for a single event. Bundling those variations works but is not the easiest for my client to handle as they have to repeat the product and then determine the variation. Not only that but it means setting the 'bundle' up as a separate product.

                                The ideal scenario would be to simply add a variation…

                                • Cost of Goods - Per order cost adjustments

                                  Cost of Goods per order, allow us to adjust the costs per order as sometimes we charge a little more or less for shipping and also can help with those the import products and deal with currency exchange rates where costs change all the time.

                                  Allowing to adjust the costs on a per order basis allows for more accurate reporting and flexibility.

                                  • Call to Action shortcode or content area for Canvas

                                    Please add a 'Promotional Banner Module' as seen in Hustle [http://demo2.woothemes.com/?name=hustle] for Canvas. With that, the ability to order, reorder modules. That would be WOO-tastic! Thank you for your consideration :)

                                    • Only allow the purchase of a digital download once, or at least notify user they have already purchased this item

                                      It doesn't make sense in most cases for a customer to purchase a digital download twice, I would love an option that would limit the customer from downloading a digital product more than once, or notify them that the item has already been purchased.

                                      • Updating the social media icons for the footer widget

                                        The social media icons are a bit outdated (e.g., they don't have the newer, flat look).

                                        • Improving the UX for non-developers

                                          I want to ask if there is any way that in future releases, you can make the framework even more customizable without going into the CSS and changing it (e.g., something as simple as allowing for the e-mail in the footer widget menu to come above the phone number, or the ability to add Twitter to that same menu).
