  1. Catalog Visibility Options - Enable/Disable shop functionality for selected products

    Have the ability to override the global catalog visibility mode from individual product pages and return them to normal functionality.

    Best way to implement I am not sure, but think this one is a no brainer and am very surprised the functionality isn't already there for how much is charged for the initial purchase of Catalog Visibility Options plugin and for plugin renewal. C'mon woocommerce...let's make this happen.

    • Per Product Shipping extension - additional items / incremental costs

      There needs to be a way to add values for "each additional" of an item. The way this plugin works now the customer would get charged the shipping rate x2 if they chose 2 of an item - and almost in no case of any postal service would the cost double like that. For example going from 1kg to 2kg. Please add this!

      • Multiple Local Delivery Rates Based on Distance from Store

        We are a florist. We have multiple local delivery rates based on location/distance/mileage from our store. The only shipping method we can offer for fresh flower arrangements is local delivery. The delivery rate will be based on the "shipping address" or location where the flowers will be delivered too. If the address is more than 15 miles from our flowers shop we refer the customer to another florist. So, we need a way to deny a purchase if the order is beyond a certain geographical distance from our shop. I can also see this being an issue for many other…

            • Travelport Galileo Web Service

              I recently stumbled upon a travelport, a company that deals with ecommerce services for travel providers and agencies. They provide products that enable travel agents to book for flights, car rentals, accommodations and other related travel services, with an international travel provider database.

              I was searching for a wordpress/woocommerce plugin that integrates with travelport's galileo API, but the search was futile.

              I think it would be massive boost to woothemes to provide a plugin for this, as it will open up a new world of clients. Stats show that about 47% of all travel agencies use travelport galileo for global…

              • Bulk order or Quick order form plugin

                There is a plugin with similar functionality here https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-bulk-order-form/ but currently it does not work flawlessly with woocommerce.

                The idea is to let customers look up by SKU or name and quickly add the variation to a form without having to go to the product page itself. This is a common need for customers ordering from a printed catalog and very popular for the seed industry where customers know the names/skus of the items they want already.

                Please make this plugin or buy it from the developer above and fix it. It makes so much sense.

                • Add ‘Sold Out’ to WooCommerce Variable Product Dropdown

                  Make it able to add the text ‘sold out’ to the variable product configuration dropdowns on the product page to make it more clear to customers when a variation was out of stock, just like on this image:

                  http://goo.gl/g4GuVu

                  This is really necessary for shops that have many variations on their products, so customer don't have to click on all of them to find out if there is stock.

                  This issue was already solved by Skyverge until the recent 2.0+ Woo upgrade:

                  • It would be great if when a client booked a time, that slot was not available to be double booked. Meaning that only 1 time slot exists.

                    I currently have people booking time in the 30 minute and 1 hour time slots. Because these are 2 different products they are independent of each other (I just learned that from customer support).
                    I desperately need these two products to work together with my schedule because the double booking piece is getting out of control. So, if one person books a lesson with me from 10-10:30, that slot disappears when you look at 30 minute lesson availability. However, if someone goes to schedule a 1 hour lesson from 10-11 they can because it doesn't show the 10-10:30 block of…

                    • Include "no class" as a calculation within Table Rate Shipping when calculating per shipping class

                      When setting a table rate to calculate the shipping based on "calculate rates per shipping class", the shipping method does not display at all when the shipping rate is set to "no class". What would be ideal is that if "no class" was included within the calculation as it does not make sense for this to throw this error "There doesn‘t seem to be any available shipping methods. Please double check your address, or contact us if you need any help."

                      I would expect "no class" would be treated the same as if it had a class. Otherwise if someone…

                      • Product Add-ons - Add a text input that increases total per character

                        Presently you can add a text box and charge a fee for that add-on, but there is no way to charge per character.

                        The only way to do this at present, is to add a multiplier box and a text input box and hope that the customer can count and select the right number of characters - this is clunky and unfortunately not going to be a reliable solution to the problem.

                        I feel this is an essential (it is for me anyway) but for engravers or other businesses that sell optional extras based on a per letter basis.

                        It…

                        • Subscription Plugin - Add a one off payment option for subscription / variable subscription products

                          It's very easy to offer multiple payment plans for subscription based products, but as well as offering those, it'd be great if the customer could pay for the product with a one off payment. The lengths I've gone to to create this effect have been ridiculous. Every time there's an update I generally have to re-do a couple things.

                          Anyway, one off payment option for subscriptions... do it, I'll love you for it.

                            • Min/max extention add option to not let it add up items after putting one into the cart

                              Now if a product ( lets say dishes with sandwiches ) is set with a minimum of 5 pers/dish and after that they can add extra pers. as they need, that works fine.

                              However if the customer isa company that orders for many different meetings whitin their company, then
                              this means that they might need to order for lets say 50 persons but split up in several different dishes for example:

                              They might need these 50 divided in 4 different plateau's/dishes

                              • Specific coupon application order

                                Please add an order option for coupons to enforce consistent final price calculation.

                                For example, if my cart costs $100 and I have two coupons to apply, say 10% rebate and a specific product discount of $20, depending on the order of application of coupons, the final amount will vary and this is wrong!

                                $100 - 10% = $90
                                $90 - $20 = $70

                                alternatively:

                                $100 - $20 = $80
                                $80 - 10% = $72

                                • add more options to Email Follow up manual emails

                                  Hi,

                                  I would like to see more options to filter manual emails, as well as more variables available for the manual emails. For example, we have a subscription service and we ship a physical product at the end of each month. We would like to send a follow-up email to all active subscribers, or all pending orders about 3 days before shipping to have them confirm their shipping address (We've had a lot of issues with customers changing their shipping address after their order for the month being placed and complaining because their order shipped to the old address)

                                  We…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Integrate WooCommerce with Cloudfront for AWS

                                      The WooCommerce extension for S3 is great but does not allow for Cloudfront integration. I would love to see Cloudfront supported with this plugin as this will allow me to offer streaming products as well as faster downloads for my digital products.

                                      • advance notification extension

                                        Good extension, but can be more practical based on my ecommerce experience.
                                        1. Notification trigger, add by manufacturer, I have multiple manufacturers and its dumb for me to send emails to myself and forward. Better yet, there should be other product meta data properties for use to select from.

                                        2. There should be a verification rule before its sends out. Sometimes, my orders cannot be sent automatically if it requires customization to the dropshipper. I would need to review, then release it.

                                          On the analysis page it would be extremely helpful and more efficient if an extra column would be added next to Completed Course that shows the progress of the student - how many sessions they have completed. This way we can see at a glance where they are at rather than having to dig around to figure it out.
