WooCommerce Multi-site Shopping Cart Feature
I think it would be super if there was a way to have a shopping cart feature that worked across a Wordpress Multi-site installation. What I mean by this is that a user could add a product on say shop1.domain.com and then navigate to shop2.domain.com and again add a product and then at anytime check out and pay. This would be a super powerful feature and something I think alot of people would have an interest in. Anyone else want to join in on this. MarketPress here http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/e-commerce has this feature but really woocommerce considering the themes available and its ambitious growth - well I'd just love to see it happen :)
Surveys have been sent out to the supporters of this ideas to see exactly how they want this implemented.

It seems like this topic is dead. I contacted a member of WooThemes a few weeks ago. I discovered that the company is no longer offering a discount on subscription (plugin updates) renewals. They now charge full price for every plugin. So you now pay the same price for a renewal that you paid for the initial purchase of said plugin, etc...
During this conversation. I was promised that someone would followup with me about the WooCommerce Multisite Functionality. Nothing ever came of it. No one ever contacted me and I'm pretty disappointed to be quite honest. My new annual bill for WooThemes is a little over $1,200.00 with their new pricing strategy. So I'd have considered myself as an "important" voice. But it seems like Woo has no interest in implementing this feature... Very disappointing... They don't even seem to have the professionalism to give everyone on this forum a quick courteous update to let us know what's going on...
Very disappointing... I feel like I shouldn't have to purchase a third-party plugin to achieve the desired functionality. This should be something that works out-of-the-box for the WooCommerce plugin.

So after 3 years and two and a half thousand votes...is this any closer to being implemented?
I finally achieved this functionality through wooglobalcart . com Meanwhile i'll stick with it.
Add us to that list, requesting this feature.
Global orders seems like a no-brainer to me, especially if you have a lot of stores for different countries.
not just globalcart , but also global product, i see a huge demand for this kinda dropshiper business, my friend use magento to do this, when woocommerce able to do this ? u guys rawk

I got that... this functionality is very hard to implement, but what about a public communicate to let people know what and when to expect ?!
Luckily i found the wooglobalcart plugin which worked flawlessly on my site. Hooray
Idea from 2012
Under review and surveys sent in 2014
We are in 2017... Any news about this?
A lot of people speak about a global cart, ok that's the basic idea, but what if you want to be an online shopping center, where each shop will have its own subsite with products and you'll have the main website showing all products.
Its nice idea but we need a magento type system where we can add a product and choose which site its is visible on and customised invoices and confirmation emails to match the domain ordered from
They are called stores (Domains), and storeviews (Languages). This way we can have one huge product base and share this across multiple domains.

Considering multi-site only shares user and usermeta DB tables, having multi-site be able to share post and postmeta would be of more use.
There is this for a global cart.
Yaay waited for so long this being available !! Thanks @Linda wooglobalcart seem to work great.
I agree with you! It would be a lovely idea. ;)
Yes! It would be absolutely amazing if you could model a multi-step checkout process like Shopify's Checkout process for example. Conversions on Shopify checkout pages are often much higher than on WooCommerce Checkout pages, because of its beautiful design and ease of use. Almost perfect!
It would be really really great if you could take the Shopify checkout process for inspiration and create something similar more modern!
I can't believe this is still not ready .. Guys what are you working on, we need this!
For now i relied on wooglobalcart . com which works great, but i would still go for out of the box solution.

If WooCommerce developers where not apply to implement such high demand functionality, at least let others know there are WooCommerce plugins which provide that !!!
