  1. Change failed stripe transactions to show as "failed" order status

    Anytime a stripe transaction is declined, the order status is labeled as "Pending" instead of "Failed." This seems to be a user experience issue. It would be very helpful if the the stripe plugin marked failed transactions as failed – since this seems to be the intention of the order status labels in the woo documentation (http://docs.woothemes.com/document/managing-orders/)

    Basically, when using the stripe gateway extension the order status currently works this way:
    Stripe payment successful = "Processing" order status
    Stripe payment failed = "Pending" order status

    But it should work this way:
    Stripe payment successful = "Processing" order status …

    • Ability to Remove Stripe Logging from Defualt "Debug.log"

      The stripe plugin logs all (or almost all) of its API calls to Stripe in the general "Debug.log", whether "Log debug messages" is checked or not in the "Settings". There needs to be a way to either have those messages not logged (or even better), for them to be included in the special Stripe log. Having all the API calls in the normal log makes it more difficult to address real issues that show up in the log.

      • Woo Product Vendors *BIG Feature List*

        Hello Ninjas,

        i wish for the future some special updates:

        - Stripe Gateway (!!!) (PayPal is dead and costs a lot of money!)

        - The same Tax functions from WooCommerce settings (!) (many Woo Customers live in Germany and we have a strength tax regulation)

        - A simple Vendor Registration Form, what we can edit very simply (Form, Boxes)

        - "Sold By" Edit: Change the Front-Size, different Sold By Names (special Vendorname, overwrite Vendorname)

        - On his own products showing NOT his VENDOR Name - only at vendor products. not on each product! (external products)

        - give a translation for…

        • Problem with Stripe extension checkout form verification

          Hi guys

          Can you make the Stripe extension run the regular woocommerce checkout page verification function when you click the "Place order" / "Continue to payment" button? Similar to how this Stripe plugin works: https://wordpress.org/plugins/stripe-for-woocommerce/

          At the moment, the customer is allowed to fill in their credit card details and submit payment even if some of the address fields are missing. After the form is submitted, the error re: address fields is show, however the customer has to re-enter their credit card details.

          When using the checkout.js functionality, if a customer forgets to fill in one of the required address…

          • Allow Product Add-ons to be added programatically from a PHP class method or via a URL attribute

            At present there's no way to programatically add a Product add-on. Seems inconsistent with what WC offers out of the box with variants and attributes.

            • Use Woocommerce as a quote only program.

              Instead of add to cart, I would like to hide all prices and change the buttons to say add to quote. People will submit request for quotes and then in the backend we can update the prices for the specific customer and then send them a notice that the quote is complete. This is completely different from quote forms since I want all items to be in the cart but the checkout will submit quote, not go to payment page.

              • enable sales reports broken down by variation for each product.

                Sales reports by product are fine for simple products, but for people with lots of variations that effect price, or manage their own stock counts, having reports that show how many of each variation were sold is very important.

                  • Interaction between Account Funds and WC Subscriptions extensions

                    Create an option for the 'WC Subscriptions' extension to draw money from a customer's account funds when combined with the 'Account Funds' extension. For example, if the customer normally pays $20 a month, but the customer has $11 in account funds stored at the time payment is due, WC Subscriptions will only charge their credit card $9 and will deduct the $11 from their account funds (totaling $20).

                    • Product Add-Ons with Image as Selector

                      It would be nice if we could add an image for the add-ons and use that image as the selector, instead of a drop down.

                      • Check if items have already been imported and synced

                        "Reload products from LS" needs an important improvement. It should check and indicate if the products have already been imported into WooCommerce. Now it is showing all the inventory even though it already have exists in WC. If your inventory is huge, it's difficult to know if the products have already been imported previously. Now it is duplicating products, which is weird. I think that the perfect behaviour would be to check and indicate if the product has already been synced and never import it again when it already exists in WC.

                        • Add product add-ons separately to variation

                          Product Add-ons added separately to each variation.
                          Say only extra large jeans can be beweled.
                          I understand this can be made out of variations alone, but it feel weird for the user to have to CHOOSE the default option through a dropdown.

                              It would be much better if they could click on the item in the cart, be sent to the product page with the name entered in, and be able to key in the change, click "Save" or "Edit" and…

                                  My client imports new products from LS every couple of weeks, maybe adding 10 or 20 at a time. As she imports them, she immediately, goes and changes the Woo products (post) from "published" to "draft" -- as she likes to manage images and descriptions in WP. So she doesn't want them live immediately on import before she has added the description etc. So an option to "Import as draft" somewhere in the loaded products table would be great. Alternatively: I can see where the insert_post array is created, and the quicker fix for now might be to just have…

                                  • Include a MSRP and Our Price in Lightspeed POS sync.

                                    Include a MSRP and "Our Price" from Lightspeed POS to WooCommerce Store. Currently it only imports Default price. It seems as this would be a pretty easy update as there are multiple fields under pricing in each item listing. Original prices could reflect what is in the MSRP field and current price could be what is another price field such as default or web store. I would like to see it as an option that are only displayed if there is a different dollar value in the fields. For example: If default is the same as MSRP both are not…

                                    • Filter which products to import.

                                      At the moment we can only manually import individual products or a selection, or import all.

                                      How about filter by tag/taxonomy for instance, or filter by categories?

                                      Tag is useful, example..... if a client has say 5000 items in their POS system, and only want to import say 2000 into WooCommerce, they could choose all the products they want to upload with a tag called webstore for instance, then when we load all the products using LightSpeed, we can filter by "tag" called "webstore" and only import those.

                                      The best thing is that once all those have been imported, say…

                                      • Exclude content from sync

                                        The sync / update feature is too basic. While some shops need to sync only stocks and prices, others could need to sync everything.

                                        For example, I don 't want to sync images from LS to WC because it makes errors in my WPML traslation product pages. I don't want to sync categories either from LS to WC because their titles are different (because of SEO). I don't want to sync stocks from WC to LS without creating a sale into LS (I need all my sales to be reported in LS). Each customer needs a custom solution and it…

                                        • Add some actual functionality in iOS app

                                          The just-released WooCommerce iOS app is nothing more than a UI shell to view basic product & order data. There is no actual store mgmt functionality built into the app - not even a way to add a note, or update an order status. This is at best a beta or RC release; V 0.8 would be a fair assessment, not V 1.0.

                                          To make this truly worth the $5, I would suggest:

                                          $1. Data-centric dashboard: Providing 3 filters is underwhelming. Adding ways to customize data views would be much more practical.

                                          $2. Updating orders - Changing and order status,…

                                            These are great ideas and most are planned features, but not currently possible with the current integration of the REST API in WooCommerce. You can only read, or get, data from a WooCommerce store with the current API.

                                            There is no way to update, edit, create, or save data.

                                            Those features for the iOS or future planned Android app rely solely on WooCommerce’s full integration of the REST API. Which is again planned for future versions of WooCommerce.

                                            Reading the post would have explained that, especially SkyVerge’s version here gives a better explanation I think. – https://www.skyverge.com/blog/woocommerce-ios-app/

                                            The $5 for this app includes those future updates, a small cost that we feel is worth it for store owners that need mobile access to their store data.

                                          • Don't see your idea?
