  1. WooCommerce / Physical Store Integration System

    My current client is thinking of dropping their website entirely due to problems with inventory management. They currently are using a Wordpress site with WooCommerce. All of their inventory is listed on the website and is sold in their physical store. The problem is that when they sell items in-store, the products need to be adjusted separately in WooCommerce. I am looking for a single system that will integrate POS, inventory management, and bookkeeping in the physical store and on the website.

    In fact, I have had potential clients who either chose not to have a website or dropped their…

        • print shipping label

          I cant believe the only way to ship products is to copy customers details into word then print.

          This must be a very useful amendment.

          • Update the Bookings plugin for more flexibility at setting times

            There are certain limitations with the Bookings plugin. For example:
            I have a tour that is Monday 09:00 to 12:00 and Tuesdays 12:00 to 15:00 and I can't set it this way. I think a lot of users are in similar scenarios with their product or services. Thanks

            • 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…

              • search by SKU

                I mean...why wouldnt we be able to search and sort products by SKU? some clients have sites with thousands of products with parts and part numbers and SKU - so I just dont know how something like this would be overlooked. Im pretty sure i speak for most, but woocommerce should definitely have the ability to search by SKU number especially since its data thats available. you gotta take the cleitns with products that are replacement parts that need to be found by SKU

                  • WooCommerce Bookings Calendar to display multiple months

                    WooCommerce Bookings Calendar to display multiple months - At present you can only see one month at a time when the calendar is displayed. It would be of great use for the customer to be able to see anything from 3 to 12 months at a time such as is used in many online booking calendars for things such as holiday rentals.

                    • Complete orders with a barcode scanner

                      Hi all.
                      I would really like to get this feature for woocommerce. I think that's it - so people can use the woocommerce features than magento.

                      1: Every time you print out a invoice, it shall contain a uniq barcode
                      2: When scanning the barcode, it completes the order / ships the order.

                      3: You shall scan the order using a barcode scanner, and it shall be easy, like, it inputs the barcode numbers into a textfield(with a command on) - then it just completes orders.

                      Conditions:
                      1) It shall check if the order already is shipped (turn red)
                      2)…

                      • 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.

                        • Age Verification

                          It would be great when a plugin becomes available that allows me to verify the age of potential clients on both product pages and category pages.

                          For an online grocery store I need to verify the age of clients willing to visit (and hopefully buy) products that contain alcohol. So far I have not discovered any WP or Woocommerce plugin that allows me to do so.

                          • 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,…

                            • Add hook to woo_image to define fallback src

                              In woo_image, just before checking for a generic `get_placeholder_image_url`, it would be great if there was a way to pass, through a hook, a function to define a custom image.

                              In my case, I'd like to have the featured image, if there isn't, the first image in the post and (here it comes) if there isn't, an image based on the tags/categories of the page. I have a custom function that returns the appropriate image, but it's impossible to hook it into woo_image without patching the framework every time it's updated.

                              • 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…

                                • 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…

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Dynamic Pricing based on quantity of 2 or more

                                        Currently, you cannot give a flat discount starting on the 2nd item. Example:

                                        QTY Cost Total
                                        1 $325 $325
                                        2 $300 $625
                                        3 $300 $925
                                        Etc etc

                                        • Product Vendor extension should absolutely have an import feature of vendors

                                          The Product Vendor extension should absolutely have a feature to import just only vendors.

                                          Without this feature for my business it is unusable that extension, unfortunately...

                                          Do you have a plan for such a feature?
                                          Thanks in advance
