  1. Buy products directly with points instead of a discount - Points & Rewards

    What would be an great improvement to the Points & Rewards extension, is when the customer could buy products directly on the product page with their points. So there would be two buttons; 'Add to cart' and / or 'Buy with points'. When the customer clicks on 'Buy with points', the points are automatically subtracted from their account (ofcourse with a ‘are you sure?’ message). Per product the administrator should choose if that product can be bought with money, points or both.

    I think it would make your extension even greater, because then you have built a complete 'Points Eco…

    • Custom checkout fields show up on customers email invoice, and on sellers email order

      Right now when Im adding a custom field (VAT Number line for EU customers) my customers cant see this line on their email invoice. Neither can I on my email order.
      The only way I can see the VAT number is by checking out each order inside my shop.

      • Airtime Purchases

        Users using their mobiles, give them the option to use their airtime to make a purchase. A lot op people are still scared to use their credit card with all the credit card fraud going around online. With this they will be able to safely make a purchase using their mobile phone as the airtime gets transferred into currency at the bank. (this will be the same as buying credits for World of Warcraft but only for your online store)

          • More control over styling menus

            Separate the styling of the submenu from the primary hover styling. Right now there is a single setting of "hover / submenu" for background color and text color. It would be great if we could style these separately. Also, it would be great to be able to set menu background colors to transparent and to be able to assign a background image.

            • More specific auto export times (WooCommerce CSV Export Plugin)

              Currently we are locked down to auto exports at given intervals. I would like functionality to be able to specify more specific times. For example, excluding weekends so I get my orders for the weekend arrive in my email on Monday in one nice juicy CSV, instead of 4/5 separate CSVs.

                • Automatically Add Product To Cart On Visit

                  This idea is in reference to this post http://docs.woothemes.com/document/automatically-add-product-to-cart-on-visit/

                  So let's say you are doing a promotion. Spend X amount of money and get Y product automatically added to your card. Now what if the user removes the original product? As of now the Y product is still in the cart. It should be that if you remove items from the cart that item Y either stays in cart or gets removed depending on X amount or money.

                  • Introduce strict naming convention

                    The inconsistent naming that is used for WooThemes Themes, Plugins, Classes, Functions, Text Domains, ... should be fixed by introducing something like a 'WooThemes Naming Convention'.

                    Don't misunderstand me, your plugins (and also those sold by other authors via WooThemes) are awesome and a real time-saver. But, for example, integrating WooThemes plugins into a non-WooThemes theme, can be really exhausting.

                    For example Sensei: Sensei's plugin folder itself is named 'woothemes-sensei', but the folders of (free) plugins are named 'sensei-certificates' etc. Why not just call all folders 'woothemes-sensei-%s'? (replace %s with that addons name)

                    The same for the plugin names: In…

                      • Selling affiliate products directly

                        A way to not only sell affiliate products directly from your own store, but for the affiliate orders to be processed (back to the vendor) automatically. This would be really handy, and might even need a slight modification of the product retailers plugin.

                        • Availability for a "one-off" webinar/seminar

                          For instance, I want to run a random webinar on a particular date at a particular time. It would be cool if I could just choose the date, time and length of session opposed to setting all of the ranges that the event is "not taking place" at.
                          Thanks

                          • WooCommerce Bookings - Available Date Drop Down Instead of Date Picker

                            Our client runs hundreds of courses, across more than 20 locations. I've had to set up the same course for every venue. They only have one available start date per month for each course and location. It would be great to have the option to display a drop down list of available dates, rather than a very empty calendar.

                            • Add link to Icons for Features Icons

                              The Icons for Features plugin does not link the feature’s icon to the target page of the feature (custom url in my case), whereas the Featured image in the regular Features plugin links to the target page (either the features post or the custom url) just fine. Thus, only the feature title is linked.

                              No big deal, but I do like using FontAwesome.

                              • Integrate Vouchers into Bookings

                                Bookings for activities or events often have a voucher that serve as an admission ticket, or at least a receipt. Currently, the only thing Bookings sends automatically via e-mail is the product name, product type, and date. It's missing important info for the customer, such as location and other details (e.g., fine print about cancellation, what to bring/wear, etc.). Vouchers attached to e-mail, perhaps using an existing plug-in like PDF Product Vouchers (which doesn't currently work with Bookings), could be a way to fill this gap.

                                  • Add Projects to more than one category and have them work!

                                    I'm using Projects by Woothemes on a school site with main projects page at http://www.hollandparkprimary.org.uk/projects/

                                    I want each class to have their recent projects listed automatically on their individual class pages. So i've created project categories for each class. Then on each class page, I'll add the project shortcode to exclude all other projects except the category that applies to that class.

                                    So for example, on Class 1 page (http://www.hollandparkprimary.org.uk/classes/class-1a/) I've used the following

                                    [projects limit="12" columns="3" orderby="date" order="desc" exclude_categories="97,98,100,101,102,103,104,105,106,107,108,109,110"]

                                    Class 1A is project category '99'

                                    This works well in testing.

                                      These are the bigest problems I faced with Sensie. without these options Sensie has not helped me much. :(
                                      1) How to add mathematical formulas for my quizzes?
                                      2) How to add pictures on to quizzes?
                                      3) how to do auto grading for quizzes questions such multiple lines, fill
                                      in blanks etc. ( at the moment I can load answers only for MCQ and
                                      true/Falls questions)

                                      • WooThemes Support Escalation

                                        =========================
                                        WooThemes Support Escalation
                                        =========================

                                        Considering the you have now launched "WooCommerce Bookings" it would be both a great demonstration of confidence in your own product, and another way to monetise your site by offering a "Support Ticket Escalation Service". This could be a one-off payment that would escalate the customer's Support Ticket to a 24-hour or suitable time frame. I have a small business and have situations where I require a different support response to normal and would be happy to pay $20-30 ofr an escalated level of support/response. Particularly in situations where my site may be down.

                                        • Reporting for products with Sale pricing

                                          I'd like to see when items are sold at Sale Price as well as Regular Price.
                                          Current WooComm reporting will show the price of items sold, and if a purchase was made with a coupon code, but where the item has a Regular Price and a Sale Price, reporting will only show whatever price the product sold for.
