  1. Recurring Orders Extension

    I would like a plugin that would allow people to automatically place the same order to be auto billed and shipped on a time frame of their choosing. For example, they place the order once, then set it up to place the same order on a monthly basis, so the customer doesn't have to go in and physically place the order over and over again. The store would automatically kick out an order/receipt when it's time to bill and ship.

    • 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…

      • Link Freshbooks to Woo Subscriptions

        Hi, I've just purchased the Freshbooks extension for Woo and I also have Woo subscriptions enabled but there is no way to link my freshbooks to my woo subscriptions. If clients have a reoccurring payment I would like to create an invoice for that and to link it in the products so that I can keep track of payments.

        There ideally should be two options one to set an end date and one to be ongoing till cancelled,

        It would then be ideal to allow an option for one invoice to cover the subscription or to allow repeat invoices for…

        • Prevent Failed Subscription Payments Automically With Stripe

          Do you have lots of failed subscription payments each month because your customer got a new card from the bank or the expiration date changed? This is a huge problem for revenue loss on customers you've already acquired. Getting these customers back can be very difficult. This issue is only going to get worse as banks issue new cards every time there is a breach at a large retailer. Stripe already has a beta program to automatically update a users credit whenever they are issued a new card by their bank. The card us updated at the bank and then…

          • Fix your coupon limits

            The coupon limit options are lacking. It is impossible to discount only one item. If I make a coupon code, and set all of the limit options to one, (one use, one item, one time, one user) the customer still has the option to add an infinite quantity of items to their cart and have that coupon discount them all. Why isn't there an option to limit this?

            • 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).

              • images autmatically reducing weight when uploaded by users from e.g. smartphones

                hello from AUSTRIA (and not Australia like Ban KiMoon yesterday greeted us in Vienna - no Roos here - also English is not my native language so please excuse if sometimes it will be a bit complicated to understand ;-) )

                I finally found an e-commerce theme that supports your multivendor-plugin (goodstore) ... so far I am happy but ..
                ...beside the not safe google-cloud-fonts-problem which I finally will solve there is another problem that is more up to your developers than to the theme-autors ...

                Multivendor means that many people can upload their own images to their own store…

                  • 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…

                      I want to sell my trainings and need a theme with courses schedulling, a workflow from prospect (sending a campain), capture responses for a CRM, send email invaiting for a course, booking, selling, confirmation, following the student progress and registering it in the CRM, etc.
                      Could you help me or recommend a good theme?

                        • Add Bulk Printing to Stamps.API or Stamps XML Plugin

                          I would love for your new Stamps.api plugin to add a bulk printing feature. Printing one by one is far too tedious when you have 10+ orders per day.

                          Also the XML stamps plugin: I would love if after you export the xml file and import it into stamps, once you print the label, it would send the tracking info back to woocommerce, input the tracking, and automatically mark the order as completed.

                          Thanks!

                            A pulldown option would be handy for those w/ many options for a single filter. Also, an option to select multiple THEN filter would be great so as to NOT wait for each filter to complete - especially give the time it takes to filter.

                            • Make logo NOT mutually exclusive with site title+description

                              Right now, if you choose a custom logo, the site title and description are hidden with { display: none; }. Often you want the logo and the description, and sometimes all three. Yes, this can be monkeyed with via CSS to un-hide and properly style the title and/or description, but it would be so convenient if we didn't have to do that every time.

                              The request is: Make logo NOT mutually exclusive with site title+description so that if all three are shown, the formatting is not wrecked or super ugly.

                              • 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.

                                • Send Email to all customers who have Points and Rewards

                                  I have nearly 10,000 customers who have ordered products, both free and paid.

                                  It would be awesome to have a 1-Click button option that would send out a prewritten email that auto-filled in the customers current point total. It would need to exclude customers who have 0 points.

                                  This would generate MASSIVE sales from return customers who forgot or didn't know they had redeemable points that can be turned into cash. Currently, I have no easy way to contact every customer to remind them how many points they have that can be used for a discount on a purchase. This…

                                  • Allow unique product descriptions for variable products

                                    My e-commerce store will be carrying variable products that will require unique descriptions for each variable product. Currently, WooCommerce only allows for one description for the parent product, not for each variable product. Allowing unique descriptions for each variable product provides opportunities to give the customer additional product details and also allows for more on-page copy which is valuable from an SEO standpoint.

                                    • Woocommerce Bookings - Add field for Name when 'Creating Booking' without an order

                                      It would be nice to add this feature in Woocommerce Booking.

                                      My client add manually booking that people do in person but she cannot add to whom the order goes.

                                      That would be nice to add a General Field like : Notes so the administrator can put notes on every order if needed.

                                      Thx a lot for considering

                                      • Combine Sensei with Smart Coupons

                                        Hey there...

                                        It would be a great solution to combine your smart coupons extension with sensei.

                                        What is the idea?

                                        It would be awesome to get the possibility to create a automatic coupon (for example with 25%) for another course (or any other product) after the student completed a lesson with a quiz (or two or three). For example: 1 coupon after the 3. Module and another after the last module (or anything like this).
                                        But with a coupon that is valid just for an hour and just for this one single time for this student..

                                        Is there a way…

                                        • Enable customization of Smart Coupon email headers and templates in WooCommerce >> Settings >> Emails

                                          If the Smart Coupon plugin is activated, can you please add function for user control over customizing email headers and content templates in WooCommerce >> Settings >> Emails?

                                          The email header and template settings have to be manually edited in the WooCommerce template file 'emails/email-header.php', and in the Smart Coupon template file 'woocommerce-smart-coupons.php'. They then have to be copied into folders on the child theme. Of all other emails that can go out from the WooCommerce system to customers, this is the only plugin feature I've found so far that is not controlled in the general Settings >> Emails feature.
