  1. AJAX Updating on post edit screens

    It would be nice the product data tabs would communicate and update each other automatically without having to save the post and reload the edit screen.

    For example, if you add an attribute set to to a product, or add an attribute value, you have to save the product before it is available in the variations tab.

    • Redirect Customer on checkout based on product purchased.

      I would like to suggest an improvement for the customer journey

      After a successful purchase it would be good to have the ability to direct them to a custom checkout page, also to have the ability for cart abandonment

      I know this exsists on a cart level I am talking on a product level so each product will have a specific thank you page that we could add in the product description / meta data. We would enter the URL of the thank you and abandon cart to direct people from that item.

      I don't know how this would work…

      • Prices display including tax in the order edit screen.

        Woocommerce to have an extra column in the edit order screen. This column displays the tax inclusive price per product line. That way if you want to reduce a product price you can just enter the tax inc price and the website does the calculations for you.

        • Checkout button beside 'add to cart' in product page

          Now, it's just an 'add to cart' on the product page.

          There should be a 'proceed to checkout' button beside it as well.

          There is a plugin that allows you to redirect directly to the checkout page, but that's not suitable.

          With both buttons available, you can have multiple options..

          - add multiple variations to cart,
          - choose to go directly to checkout after making a choice (instead of adding a step of viewing the cart

          A 'proceed to checkout' button will also make it more intuitive for less savvy users, like the older folks, or those whose command of…

          • Use FIFO (First in, first out) and cash basis method for keeping track of cost of goods.

            The current method of cost of goods in Woocommerce is not properly done. In fact, it's completely useless.

            When you operate with inventory, you constantly buy products wholesale at different prices. For example, we may buy 1,000 cups in january at $5 a piece and the next month 1,000 cups at $6 a piece. How exactly would one go about getting woo commerce calculating the average cost of goods?

            Sure, you can re-calculate the average cost yourself and enter in the new COG on the product page, but it will update all previous sales as well with this new COG.…

            • Stock level translation pluralisation

              The variable "Only %s left in stock" should be pluralised as many variations would require a plural form. For example we are currently using woocommerce for booking training places and would like the following wording but can't due to this limitation.

              "s% space(s) available"

              • Adaptive Pricing

                The price that is displayed for a product should instantaneously adapt according to the respective price of the quantity selected. Currently, if a customer selects a quantity if 5 items that cost $10 each, the price that is displayed remains fixed at $10 when they have made a selection of $50 worth of merchandise. Ideally, in this situation, "$10" should be displayed for a selection of 1, and $50 should for displayed for a selection of 5. This way, the customer knows the total cost before clicking add to card, and it saves them a step of having to navigate…

                • Merging Woo orders

                  It would be nice if we could merge orders!
                  Sometimes users make other orders and this is a huge workflow problem. This could be solved easily with "merge order" functionality.

                  • More flexible free shipping

                    Right now, free shipping is conditioned by either a coupon, or a minimum amount - can't be both. And when activating the coupon-conditioned free shipping, the minimum amount is not used anymore.

                    The use case I'm looking for:
                    - have the minimum amount linking to free shipping all the time
                    - in addition, for short period of time, enable a coupon that provides free shipping whatever the amount is.

                    Additionally, when using a discount coupon, it is displayed in the cart and checkout page so users can remove it. A coupon providing free shipping is not shown, so can't be…

                      • Edit Order Item Attribute Interface

                        To edit order item attributes, a shop owner must use slugs. Furthermore, the available attributes and terms (for this product or otherwise) are not displayed in a drop-down. This requires an owner to first check whether a product has an attribute, then figure out the slug for both it and the term.

                        • Set a calendar date for products to go back into stock.

                          To be able to select a back in stock date on a mini calendar for a product - or variable on a product. When the date arrives, the product would automatically go back into stock. There is an add on that does this for oscommerce - but not for woocommerce.

                            At the moment if there is a change to your core email template there is no way to enable a bulk resend of customer emails (for instance if updating instructions about how to collect tickets (I am an events organiser)). Is is possible to implement this at all?

                            • User selectable number of products per page

                              Add the option for users to select how many products are shown by page. Personally when I go to a site and I'm looking at products, I like to list all the products on a single page as it is easier to view them.

                              Currently there is no way for users to do this and they have to click through every page which can lose visitors. Their only option is to change the sorting order.

                              It is common to offer options like ** 12 / 24 / 48 / 96 / All ** for example.

                                The Layered Nav widget should be able to be shown on all pages of the site, not just product pages. If you're setting up a commerce site, you want clients to be able to search by product attributes when they first click into your site (on the home page) without having to make the home page your Shop page.

                                • Ecotax - New field for products (environment related taxes)

                                  Hi,

                                  I was planning moving a website from Prestashop to Woocommerce. It's a tires store.

                                  However, I cannot because of the so-called "ecotax". It's a tax for some kind of products (like tires), related to the environment laws.

                                  In Prestashop they have built-in support for that field. It's a field for the product itself, like the price or the ID. Attached a screenshot from the Prestashop's database: https://www.evernote.com/l/AGxAPHDhTtBF9aEFFBrX1GBdAyibyLLF92Q

                                  If Woocommerce is willing to support all kind of industries, the ecotax field is a must. It's not a percentage from price, but a fixed value for each product.

                                  Thanks.

                                  • Add Variable Products to Grouped Product

                                    At the moment you are unable to add variable products to a grouped product. The plug-in "Product Bundles" tries to solve this, but is not able to have dynamic quantities on the front-end via a quantity field, rather than setting the quantity in the edit interface. This plug-in also has a quantity field for the main/grouped product which wouldn't be compatible with the above requirements - it would need to be removed like the standard Grouped Product within WooCommerce.

                                    Is this coming up in future releases?

                                      • Related Products - Backend option to choose if we wanna show TAG or CATEGORY related products.

                                        Related Products - Backend OPTION to choose if we wanna show TAG or CATEGORY related products on the single product page.

                                        the current related item function doesn't work at all.

                                        • UPC code field in product

                                          this is the basic form of tracking besides SKU,
                                          if like me you carry 15000 products and sell on Amazon
                                          --------- this is CRITICAL--- surprised this is not on Woo as its on Magento and other eCommerce platforms out of the box
