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.

Sub sites have their own stores and main site displays all the products. There would also have to be global categories and search. Maybe as an addition a frontend user interface.
Epic gamechanger if this would happen.
WOW...if this idea happen!
Does anyone know if this was ever implemented?
Morten Birk commented
Yes please. Any news on this Woo?
I am currently using that plugin for my site and I would DESPERATELY like woocommerce to work the same way - cause woo is just more powerful for the individual store owner. I woo on another site and much prefer it. PLEASE make this happen!

This would be HUGE! We're currently planning the move of all our existing clients using e-commerce over to WooCommerce and already building it into all new sites. Multisite will play a very large roll soon in managing different client ecosystems with micro sites or related sites, so this feature would be THE game-changer. +3!

I'd love to have the setup where you can run multiple stores from one backend. Is Magento the only good and supported PHP platform that does this?

I'm building a Solution with WooCommerce, where users can create their own store easily and we'd handle the Payment Processing, Item Pickup & Delivery, Marketing, SEO, etc.
Would love to get your comments and views on this. Has someone already implemented this?

YES. Multiple storefronts through one backend would be huge. We employ this method with our current .net based cart, but are looking to switch.

I've been using MarketPress, but I really prefer WooCommerce. Unfortunately, I *need* that site-wide shopping cart feature and can't make the transition without it... :'(
using wp multisite users create their own store by paying monthly subscription or percentage of their sales.
yeah yeah....that would be awesome!
@ All ninjas here :
"Three votes from me! Can't hardly wait for this dreamy feature comes true.. Global multi-site shopping cart feature in woocommerce absolutely will be a brand new innovation that sure will bring WordPress to its next level.."
@ JamesWeb :
"I had experience on that marketplace plugin.. but we better just forget about any eCommerce plugins other than Woo's, Just don't waste your time and don't expect too much... :) "

The simplest feature I would hope to get out of a feature such as this, is the ability to add buy buttons on sub blogs that include the security token.
That's a good idea, I think. Similar to Magentos setup, where you can run multiple stores from one backend. Combining this with domain mapping and you'd have an almost exact copy of the Magento feature.
yes...its good idea......if there is plug in which new user can register on your site,add product and sell product from your site and you would be getting certain percantage of commision on that sell...it would be revolutionary idea if this would happen...
Multi-vendor, multi-store would be incredible. A big job I would have thought - but would certainly set WooCommerce from the other e-commerce plugins.
It doesn't neccesairly need to be your own store, just having the ability for users to add stuff at the main store would be cool.

I too was looking for this one. Would love it if users could set up their own mini-store within the main site store.
Similar to etsy.com where you can add items to your basket from any number of stores - upon checkout it breaks the order up into smaller ones for each min-store to fulfill.
