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. I need my users to only create a profile when they submit an order. - Authorize.NET - CIM

    I need my users to only create a profile when they submit an order.

    I understand the risk of not authorizing the card yet, but I cannot charge my customer until I calculate shipping on my end.

    Can you add a "Validation Mode" > "create profile only" setting so that I can achieve this?

    This way my users would only create a profile when they submit an order, and the card would not be authorized yet.

    and then I could use the authorize.NET CIM dashboard to complete the transaction with shipping costs included, and bill my customer once.

    thanks.

    Please…

    • More actions for Points & Rewards

      Points & Rewards is a great idea, but it's not fully formed. It would be great if we could reward points for social sharing, registering for a newsletter (MailChimp/ConstantContact/etc) or by using coupon codes. (e.g. "Earn 100 points when you checkout with the code POINTS4ME")

      That last one would actually be amazing because we're essentially giving them a deeper discount on a FUTURE order.

      • WooCommerce needs to store order data separately

        WooCommerce strongly recommends a separate, development server and moving that copy to the live site. However, WooCommerce offers little to nothing to prevent that process from overwriting any orders received on the live site singe the last copy was pulled to the staging server. WooCommerce should either add functions to export, save and later, import order activity, or perhaps store order information in its own tables so that developers could more easily do development on WooCommerce enabled sites.

        Without one of these solutions developers are left with the daunting task of manually rebuilding the order history in the DB tables…

        • Complete quiz only when answered all questions

          Right now it's possible to complete a quiz although not all questions are answered. There also is no notification towards the learner that he forgot to answer some of the questions.

              • STAGING - recent order migration

                Ok, big problem with WOO and staging. IF you take a couple days to work out the kinks of your staging updates, by the time you want to pull the changes down to live - you have new orders that will be lost forever.

                I want a plugin that will transfer recent orders from the live site to the staging site - then I can just pull the staging to live and be a happy camper.

                • Bulk Stock Management Language issue

                  I installed the WooCommerce Bulk Stock Management and we use WPML multilingual plugin for Italian and English language.
                  It seems that the WooCommerce Bulk Stock Management duplicate each products with same sizes, see grab image http://demarchi.com/bulk_double_items.png

                  Is there a possibility to filter only one?

                  Thanks
                  Luca

                  • If a product has more than one brand show all brand images on product page

                    At the moment you can easily assign more than one brand to each product. The problem is only one brand image is shown on the product page by default.

                    I would like all brand images for the product to show.

                    • Implement abandoned cart tracking in the Kissmetrics extension

                      Kissmetrics offers the ability to track abandoned cart parameters like email address etc. This has not yet been implemented in the Kissmetrics extension. It would be a very helpful upgrade and not very difficult to implement.

                      • Woo Photography addon

                        We are a photography company covering public events and would like to show each collection (or in our case an event) as a clickable link on the homepage. At present you can only show recent photographs.

                        We would like for the customer to come to the homepage and see a section similar to Recent Products but as Recent Collections (Events)

                              • Send Billing AND Shipping information to Payment Gateway Provider

                                I have a SagePay payment gateway and after my customers have completed a purchase and a transaction, WooCommerce only sends SagePay the billing address as oppose to the billing address AND the shipping address. That means the customer receives a purchase confirmation email from SagePay which is confusing because it states the shipping address is the same as the billing address when it isn't. Our shop then receives telephone calls from confused customers which can waste both our's and their time. I think it would be much better for WooCommerce to send the correct shipping details also.

                                The customer also…

                                • Footer Custom Text Options: please turn on the Visual Editor for these text areas

                                  I think the Custom Text Left (copyright) and Custom Text Right (credits) boxes are the only two front-facing Canvas options that require knowledge of HTML to manage.

                                  And even if you're not using HTML, the footer options are fairly deep in the interface (Dashboard -> Canvas -> Settings -> Headers & Footers then scroll twice.) So it's particularly time consuming to navigate back and forth to make even minor adjustments.

                                    • A possibility to see what is in the visitor's cart before he make an order? Something like live cart view.

                                      That way admin could see what the buyer is putting into the cart and my help with some alternatives or recommendations via some external chat plugin.

                                        • Sensei long quiz organization

                                          It would be nice to be able to break the longer quizzes up into manageable chunks and save after each page. I have 100 question quizzes as a final exam and all the questions are on a single long scrolling page. The save button is all the way at the bottom and students rarely know it is there. Below are the features I am looking for:

                                          1. Break quiz into pages with a "save and continue" button after each page. Admin can determine how many questions for each page.

                                          2. Duplicate save button to the top of the quiz pages.
