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.
I'm also looking for a woocommerce site with multiple stores and where each supplier can access their own store after having created it, then also edit or delete it.

Though I have voted this idea for once but I had to Vote for the idea of "Woocommerce Custom T-Shirt Designer" for 3 times. Because it simply won my heart and Love.
You can check the details of that idea at : http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/133476-woocommerce/suggestions/4304361-custom-t-shirt-designer-for-woocommerce
And the more interesting thing is, I saw that same idea published in codecanyon at the following link : http://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-custom-tshirt-designer/5185471?ref=wpproducts
And that made me more excited to see it in reality.
Guys you can check it out too and Vote for it at least twice to encourage them.
Would be great to have news on this. I see a new extension yesterday looking at multi-vendor capabilities. But the global cart element is the killer for me. Any timeline for completion?
I'm really stuck with not wanting to choose MarketPress but it's such a significant function.
I would like it to be possible to have one backend, running multiple stores with different products.
Would it be possible to provide an approx release date you have in mind for the Global WooCommerce version?
We are pretty set on use WooCommerce on an ongoing development and wonder how complicated will be to incorporate an existing site into a multi-site later on.
Would it be possible to install the 'Global' WooCommerce install and then 'restore' this existing WooCommerce site as a subsite of the new architecture??

This would be a great addition to WooCommerce and I am very interested to hear how Lucus is getting on with his proposed extension.

See Frank's comment on June 5th, which address a comparable topic. Can't wait to see the Lucas Stark proposed extensions, especially the second one (for in my case the workflow does not have any subscribers :)

Imagine : I am a multibrands vendor.
I want to manage a consolidated product database (and associated orders, inventory, warehouse workflow etc.) BUT want a different shop for each brand: providing a different shop name, theme, look and feel and targeting different customers And/or related access, invitation etc.
It could be great to have one products base and be able to dispatch these products to my different shops/websites - it could be made easy under a multisite installation.
It could be a really strong differentiator from MarketPress addressing multisite functionalities.
Any news on this_

Any word? I am starting a shop soon and would love to use Woo, but may have to go with Marketpress :(
Feeling a bit dumb because I already spent a while hacking my WooCommerce install for certain multisite functionality, only to find much later now that the options are all saved to `wp_options` main table and not the specific table for a given site.... -____-
Would really LOVE if this feature were added, but it might be too late and I may need to go MarketPress.
If this happens I'll definitely start using Woo
Marketpress is great but i also love woo!! Having features similar to marketpress would be an excellent addition especially if we could charge a % per sale and a small monthly/yearly fee to run a shop or pro shops.

great idea... i'm just looking for the extension to do that...
I think if i was to do this i will look in to the WPML as i have try this on a normal site here you can make new domain for each shop and use the wpml to control this ?

Any chance you know when you will have a plugin built to do this?

This would be a great feature, and I could use it too. Lucas do you have any updates on the development or a launch date?
