    • 'Daily Deal' product widget

      I would like to have a "Daily Deals" widget that could be featured on the home page to help bring visitors back to the shop regularly to check out the latest heavily discounted item.
      I'm looking for a way to present one product with a countdown and count of items sold - similar to http://templatic.com/demos/?theme=dailydeal.
      I'm not after a daily deals theme, just a widget from which you can choose a product to feature as a 'daily deal'.

      Basically a featured sale item with a countdown.

      • Custom delivery info at each product etc. 3-5 weeks

        All commerce shops seems to miss the rising option that more and more shops sell products shiped from eastern. Furniture etc.

        A customer needs to be able to see when the product is estimated to be delivered. Today you only can show on stock or not on stock, but no extra information about the delivery time.

        Could it not be an idea to add a custom field after the stock information where you at each product can write estimaed deliverytime.

        Having a shop with furnitures right now, where we really need this.. As the products variates from 2-3 weeks to…

        • A postcode/zipcode delivery check BEFORE the Checkout page

          The Local Delivery option in WooCommerce works really well on the Checkout page. With a list of postcodes entered in the Local Delivery Settings page, the customer is told whether or not we deliver to that area.

          However, as Local delivery is the only option (due to product delivery restrictions) we do not want a customer to get to the checkout page and have to fill out all their details and only then discover we do not deliver to their postcode.

          Therefore, we require the same functionality of the Local Delivery postcode check found at the Checkout page, but able…

          • Price and Availability Alert

            I have been receiving phone calls and emails with people that want to know when a specific product that I sell goes on sale or is in discount.

            There should be a way to do this automatically!

            I'm quite sure that like these there are other tons of consumers that would like to "follow" my items and be notified of price changes. ANd price is not the onlye issue: I believe notifying about availability is key, as sometimes I have products that are out of stock and if someone is interested they have to e-mail me asking for me to…

            • Discount on first order or free shipping on first order

              A really simple one this... A % discount on the first order for any new customer or free shipping on the first order.

              Would be a good idea to encourage the customer to create an account to promote loyalty.

              This is quite commonplace and would be a brilliant feature to have.

              • Price per kg, or liter or unit - according to European Laws

                In many countries the law requires to show the price on items like powder in kg, with any liquid in liters and pills or tablets in units. If you want to sell products like protein powder, whereby the package is 750g, you have to show the customer the price per 1kg. This is not a "nice add-on", this is law all over the European market. It is very tricky to add a field, because these fields can not calculate and if the price changes, there is a lot of work involved to keep track. The authorities in Europe are looking…

                • Display Video in Product Image Page

                  One essential thing is missing from the product page, a video converts a sale much quicker than images. You get to view the product in real, the designer or product seller can directly get the message across to you.

                  What I'm visualizing is a custom field or an embed box in the 'add product page'. The ability to add display a video in the place where the product image displays or having both both displayed will be awesome.

                  • Password Protect Category

                    At the moment the features when making a category are limited, It would be nice to have the ability to make a whole category password protected for client use as these products are not for public viewing.

                    To have this feature would not only make it easier for clients to buy their products but also have piece of mind to know that only they can see and buy them.

                    As a photographer this feature would be highly beneficial on the wedding / portrait side of things.

                    • Variable stock management

                      Currently, there is no maintained solution to manage variable product stock and update product quantities dynamically (for ex. i sell tea per grams with 25g-50g-70g or 100g and wants each variation to deduct from the main product total, not only -1 by default).
                      I'm sure i'm not alone in this case (coffee, rice, sweet dealer...)

                      • Fulfill CD, DVD, USB or Books On Demand plugin

                        How about a Plug-in to fulfill CD, DVD or USB on demand? Or sell your books on demand?

                        You have your customer base and you currently offer your content for digital download. Why not give those customers the option to have the content on physical DVD, or books or USB? This gives you extra revenue, customer satisfaction and showcases your brand.
                        If you sell products using WooCommmerce, we integrate with your cart – you keep the revenue and we become a fulfillment extension of your business.

                        • video on demand

                          I've got a request for a solution or a new theme:
                          I have video-workshops that I want to sell online in a protected environment, but still haven't found an ideal solution.
                          Here are some features that I'm looking for:
                          - Custom register/login/profile section
                          - A video can be purchased once with the video listed in a "purchased digital products" page with a pre-determined lifetime.
                          - Live streaming events can be bought and access granted to a specific page for a determined amount of time, where the player (e.g. Livestream) is embedded.
                          - The video can be hosted on Amazon S3…

                            • Crowd-Funding Extension

                              Create a WooCommerce extension to crowd-fund projects. Perhaps it could be combined with the Listings Theme to allow for greater customization. There's also an open source version available as a starting point or case study:
                              https://github.com/danielweinmann/catarse#readme

                              Another opensource project: Spot.Us, which illustrates application of crowd-funding to journalism. Code (ruby framework) available on Git.

                              • Countdown to shipping

                                A timer which counts down to the next shipment.
                                Example: Order in the next 45 minutes and your order will be shipped today.
                                Then the webmaster could set a time of the day, where the timer starts over.
                                As an extra extension it would be nice if there could be different messages for the user depending on the time left to shop.
                                Exampe: If there is 30 minutes left the text should be something like "Hurry up, we ship in 30 minutes" and if there were 4 hours left ot could be "Relax, drink a cup of coffee and look…

                                • 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.

                                    • WooCommerce Two-Factor Authentication

                                      Would be great to have a 2-factor authentication option. Could be an integration with Authy or Google Authenticator. Right now it seems those only integrate broadly with Wordpress login. I think it'd be useful to have this level of authentication at the checkout process, after confirming an order.
