  1. Product Vendors to allow different rates per vendor?

    Can the Product Vendors plugin be extended to allow for different commission rates for the multiple vendors assigned to a product?

    My use case is that I have a number of artists that contribute material to an given album, all of them split a 20% commission of net sales, as well as one or more album promoter(s) / producer(s) who earn different commissions than the artists split.

    • Automatically increase the ??-Memory allocated

      Automatically increase the ??-Memory allocated at 40 mb for multiple variations so it is not always an issue

      • What's up with Woothemes not caring for translations?

        I was told that this is not something Woothemes is looking to support in the future, or having .mo and .po files available for the plugins.

        Not really sure what to make of this, just disappointed and hoping that localisation will be properly considered in WooThemes products.

        • 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.

          • Disaster : Poor "Search Box" Algorithm : Better one is Required

            Well a search box is the basic and important need of a ecommerce website, people can search their products through it. well , i have to admit that the algorithm behind the search box is weak and poor.
            for example :
            if someone is searching "bag" on my woocommerce website through search box,
            it will show the results.
            but
            if someone searches "bags" then the woocommerce will generate no result. total zero.
            this will result customer frustration, lowering in sales. just watch amazon.com, flipkart.com ... even spelling mistake will give you good results, their searchbox is so smart.

            • Woocommerce review extension widget needed

              it would be great if the new Woocommerce reveiw extension also had a widget that could go in a sidebar to enter reviews right there. They could enter the product name and as they type the widget finds the product. They choose it and enter the review and stars right below. Entering reviews on the product page can be a number of levels down on the site so it would be good to have something on the front page to remind visitors to review the products they already have. Thanks,

              • Allow product bundles to have a separate download

                We have individual digital downloads for bundled products, but since we bundle a lot of those (usually ten or twenty per bundle), we'd like to also offer a single download that contains everything that's in the bundle. This would ideally even remove the individual downloads so the download list doesn't get cluttered up.

                  • Canada Post Shipping Plugin - automated shipping order, label generation

                    It would be very useful to have additional features added to the existing Canada Post Shipping Calculator Plugin.
                    1. Auto generation of Canada Post Order based on the shipping info that customers provide during checkout process.
                    2. Shipping label generation within woocommerce site.
                    3. Shipping info and tracking number where applicable sent from within the woocommerce site.
                    4. The ability to set free shipping when a purchase order exceeds a certain amount (such as $100)
                    Hope these features can be developed as it would make woocommerce integrate with this method of shipping in a streamlined manner.

                    • Color Swatches on Category Page

                      Hi :),
                      I really would like to add colour swatches on the category page.
                      Like this magento extension:

                      http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/magento-easy-color-swatches-extension.html

                      It could be implemented in woocommerce or ever better in the "woocommerce variation swatches and photos" plugin. There should be only a checkbox in the swatches tab, so that specific attribute can be displayed on the category page.

                      Thanks :)

                        • Paypal core with brandname

                          I work with paypal express on different shops and it works perfect. My problem, I am asking for help and support is with the standard, core paypal payment within woocommerce.

                          To explain here the paypal background: It is possible to use ONE paypal account for up to 8 different shops. This is possible by adding additional mail addresses to the paypal account.

                          To show the customer on the paypal page the right logo of the shop, you define in the paypal account a "custom defined payment page" and use at woocommerce for core paypal and paypal express plugin the setting…

                          • Return shipping provider needed!!

                            Hi have purchased Returns and warranty request plugin and its does show the shipping provider drop down but its empty.... so when the customer enters the tracking code, how are we suppose to track it when theres no shipping provider.....

                            without shipping provider theres no use of tracking code. So please show key shipping providers like fedex, dhl, aramex, UPS, USPS, Royal mail, etc so that this plugin becomes useful at max.....otherwise its of no use to us and a waste of money....!

                            Thanks.

                              • WC Bookings: Email notification to admin when customer place a "Check availability"

                                No email is send when a customer places a new order with booking products set as "check availability". This is most stressful because i'm not always online. But I always have my phone with me and a simple notification would do the trick.

                                Thanks guys!

                                • Email notifications based on Coupon usage

                                  When a coupon is used, I'd like WooCommerce to automatically email some details of the order to promoter who is advertising that coupon. This way they can see what sales their commission will be based on without it having to be manually reported (and potentially misreported).

                                  • Children Sponsorships

                                    I would like to use WooCommerce for children sponsorships like in the website www.children.org

                                    I mean, a way the you can post boys an girls miniprofile and the future sponsor could donate for them, like monthly, or yearly donations.

                                      • Red Dot = SOLD

                                        There is a standard in the artist community of placing a red dot next to a painting (or other item) which has been sold. Because so many people are utilitizing woo commerce and the internet to sell their hand made goods, it would be terrific if you could create this as a feature of woo commerce.

                                        • Export product listing

                                          When it comes to repricing I would like to have a full list of items in my store, perhaps exporter to .csv or printer to work through. Is this at all possible?
