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. Catalog Visibility Options - Enable/Disable Commerce functionality based on Role

    Hi, i think Catalog Visibility Options plugin should work based on user role. I mean, we would be able to allow shoping if a user is editor or high.
    For now, if a user is registered as subcriber then he/she be able to see the prices.
    But with my idea, we can divide the users as visitor (just surf on site) / user (only comment to posts etc...) / buyer (ability to buy products).

    • Composite Products - Add ability to add a Composite Product as a Component

      Composite Products - Add ability to add a Composite Product as a Component to the Composite Product being defined. This provides an unlimited amount of levels of selection. The concept is a single-level Bill of Material; whereby, an assembly can be used in other assemblies.

      • Product vendor plugin would be useless without 2 functions

        1. vendors can receive the new order notice.

        Add a function that New order notice can be sent to vendors' email when a client place an order for the vendor's product.


        2. Vendors can see orders belonged to them.
        In wordpress CMS, a Vendor can both edit their products and view all orders related to his products.

        • Different Shipping methods based on locations

          Have different Shipping for different states or countries. i.e. Imagine if we can have USPS shipping for all states except NY and have Fedex for NY.

          • Listings retired: Bring custom post type builder back

            Now that you have retired the Listings theme - http://docs.woothemes.com/document/retired-themes/ - in favor of removing functionality from themes and bringing it into plugins where it belongs, it would be great if you could develop a similar experience to Listings with a new theme + plugin combo.

            Ideally, it would include the custom post type builder as well as Google Maps integration (two separate plugins?)

            Now that you have retired the Listings theme there are 1000s of customers that will need to look at updating their site down the road.

              • Please add the out-of-stock items to the comparable products in your compare pro extension

                The compare pro extension allows my customers to only choose in-stock items to see the side by side comparison page. But sometimes they would like to compare it with out of stock items and decide if they can use the in-stock item or they should wait for the other.

                • Block X days after a previous booking

                  It would be good if there is an option to allow X number of block out days (which cannot be booked) after an existing booking. These days may be useful for maintenance purposes.

                        For Points and Rewards: I would like to give my clients (automatic) Coupons instead of discount and I would want the possibility to not show the field for redeeming points at checkout.

                        • Midnight bookings

                          Now bookings after midnight appear on the next day's list. That's very confusing and annoying to clients. It's a simple function of letting the admin decide when a day ends. Can you add this in a future update of WC Bookings?

                          • 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…

                              • Optimize the checkoutprocess - for faster and easier use and more Customers!

                                Hello, the checkoutprocess could be improved to converting more customers. So far you have to scroll a lot down and the width is not used for maximum purpose for example concerning the input fields.

                                Instead of having 2 columns with billing, shipping and the review and payment in the bottom as a full column, an opportunity to choose another template with 3 columnns would be a great way not to loose so many customers through the checkoutprocess, because they will immediatly have an overview and getting faster through it.

                                The third column should be for the payment and order overview.

                                • Testimonials plugin for wordpress, add a 'submit your testimonial' button for users/customers

                                  Maybe I have just missed how to do this, or maybe i'm being a bit stupid, but am I right in thinking that a new testimonial can only be added on the back-end of wordpress?

                                  Surely there should be a place for customers to add there own review, and then the web master approves the review for the site. Not allowing customers to submit there own testimonals seems a bit false, and that means genuine reviews are hard to come by.

                                  Also this would mean every review will have to be manually added by the web master on wordpress back-end,…

                                  • Automatically alert user that product isn't available in their country

                                    It'd be nice if there was a way to alert someone if a product isn't available for a specific country on checkout? Especially for dropshippers who have different shipping costs, depending on the destination country, especially if some dropshippers ship to certain countries, while others don't.

                                    For example:

                                    I know woocommerce gives you the ability to offer products to different countries, but let's say I have a product that can be shipped to U.S. & Canada, but not France, and at the same time I have a different product that can be shipped to U.S., France, but not Canada.

                                    • Limit Booking Resource per day

                                      So, I have some contractors listed as resources. I do like the resource option. However, for some bookings they may take people on a 6 hour hike in a day. The problem is that despite the person being available time wise later on in the day, they can only do 1 hike per day.

                                      This feature would also be nice for say someone who gives massages.
                                      Sure, time wise they can do maybe 10 in a day, but they probably don't have the energy to.

                                      Same goes for personal training, stripping (okay that was is just funny), party clown, hair…

                                      • Bookings Display price range with toggle

                                        I will just copy and paste what I originally posted here

                                        https://support.woothemes.com/hc/communities/public/questions/203531766-Display-price-range-table-on-Bookings

                                        I'd like to be able to display a price range above the calendar. I can add this manually with jQuery, but then I of course have to pull the data from the database unless I want to manually enter this information each time.

                                        My suggestion is to just have a little check box in the Costs tab that says "Show table for price range on product page". I'd then have it appear so that it sits right above the calendar with a toggle option and have it defaulted…

                                        • Bookings Responsive design

                                          Make the Back end of the Booking Plugin Responsive.

                                          It's works great on a desktop but try to manage Bookings on the back end thru WooCommerce on a Tablet or iPhone and it's embarrassing to show a client.
