  1. Cancel order from My Account page

    Uk Distance selling regulations (2000) and amended as of June 13th 2014 give the customer the absolute right to cancel the order within 14 days (was 7 days). These changes to UK law bring us inline with a European Union directive. So this covers the whole of Europe. Frankly amazed that a customer cannot at least instigate the cancellation process from the My Account page.

    Appreciate that the whole process cannot be driven by the customer click of a button as refund may be dependent on return of despatched goods.

    The ideal would be to have additional status items such…

  2. Allow users to use acquired points and money to checkout.

    I have a new start-up Evlove that allows stylish girls to trade in their once loved items for different ones using our virtual currency called "points". (www.shopevlove.com)

    To reward girls their points, we've been sending them a coupon code via email that they are able to use a checkout. This is not efficient and has been limiting us in regards to expansion.

    Is there a plug-in available that will...?
    - Allow us to reward customers their acquired points directly to their WooCommerce accounts so they can check out in a pain free fashion. (backend)
    - Allow us to…

  3. Easy way to provide free sample downloads on product page

    For many kinds of products a free sample download is useful (software, plugins, themes, books, etc.)
    Right now there is no easy way to include this into a product page.

    Would be good to have an additional option "product has free sample download", a way to upload the file directly in the product admin, a text field for the sample download teaser text, a nice button with customizable text, - voila.

    Increases sales like nuts for a lot of products!

  4. Add grey text "Add coupon code" to blank space on Cart page

    My clients are getting confused about where to enter the coupon code at times. I suggest adding grey text "Add coupon code here" or just "coupon code" to the white field to the left of the "Apply Coupon" button on the cart page, so it is consistent with the coupon code field on the checkout page. I am losing some customers as they don't go on to the Checkout page without being certain the code can be applied.

    Assuming your browser supports placeholder text (almost all do now) you should see “Coupon Code” in the field.

  5. Fortnightly Availability

    We have a client who runs a course every two weeks with two different timeslots. Currently, it looks like we have to enter these date and time ranges manually (that's 52 entries per year for 1 course alone).

    Having a function where availability can be set to only start (for example) every second Monday would be amazing. Automation is the future.

    Also while you're in there, having a duplicate button for ranges would also make things a lot quicker and easier.

  6. Make It Quicker to Change Dates in Subscriptions 2.0

    In Subscriptions 1.5, it was quick & easy to edit the renewal dates for multiple orders by clicking the 'Change' button in the 'Next Payment' column.

    This quick-edit option is no longer present in Subscriptions 2.0, so we need to open up each Subscription as a new tab/page to adjust subscription dates. This new workflow takes considerably longer to adjust multiple dates quickly.

    I'd also be uber agreeable to any other method to more quickly edit multiple dates.

  7. Easier way to disable Email notifications

    Currently, it takes 4-5 steps (clicks) to deactivate an email notification.

    Would it be possible to make the disable action take place on the main Email notifications page?

    This would be similar to the WP core action for Trashing Posts or Updating Plugins.

    The Email notifications page currently has green checkmarks or grey x's which look just like buttons and the expected user reaction is to click on the to disable the email notification.

    It seems clunky the way it currently works.

  8. Redirect purchase at item level to another site

    Sometimes you have items that you want in your store, but you can't (or don't) resell them. If that button can take the customer to the third-party site's page of your product.

    For example: Kindle files, iTune files, mobile apps, etc. need to be purchased on another company's site, but if you are the producer of said book, music files, mobile app, you want it included seamlessly in your own shop.

    This would also be good for affiliate links.

  9. Lead Capture Widget/Plugin - Which integrates with iContact, MailChimp, Awebber, GetResponse etc, etc

    I would like to have a plugin / widget area that can be used for lead capture purposes. Collecting a visitors email or email and name.

    Allow us (user) to choose or upload a custom submit/sign up button.

    The plugin should also integrate with all the major email auto-responder providers such as:

    iContact
    Awebber
    MailChimp
    GetResponse
    InfusionSoft
    Constant Contact
    Etc, etc.

    Also, being able to add a custom text title and/or a custom title image would be great

  10. Login as Customer

    It would be very helpful if admins / shop managers had the ability to log into a customers my-account page.

    We have a lot of failed renewal orders and customers always call us to give us the updated credit card info. They never log into their account and do it themselves.

    Would be handy if there was a button next to each parent subscription account that would allow us to into the customers my-account page and updates / make any edits or changes.

    What do you think?

  11. Allow the customer to skip next delivery while keeping the subscription active

    Sometimes customers want to skip a monthly delivery for various reasons. Fx. they can't afford it next month, or they haven't run out of the products subscribed for yet.

    Right now customers have to suspend the subscription and remember to reactivate it, but with a simple button "skip next delivery", they won't have to manually log in and reactivate it after suspension. Some customers might forget to do that which is missed business opportunity for the store owner and disappoint for the user.

  12. Make it easy to test e-mails

    Currently it takes a large amount of effort to test any changes done to e-mail templates. Making it easier to test the different e-mail situations with dummydata (just a button in the e-mail settings page), would make it a lot easier to handle all the digging in html & php.

    It would make it a quick way to help developers without you having to make a full blown WYSIWYG editor for e-mails and e-mail designs. (not that that wouldn't be nice also :)

  13. Company ID / VAT ID to be stored in customer account

    Currently Woocommerce does not store store company ID or EU VAT ID in customer user account. ID is stored only in individual order in custom fields.

    The problem arises when creating new order for customer through the admin site: ID must be searched from old orders and filled manually and then calculate also VAT tax manually as automatic "Calculate taxes" button will give invalid result regardless of VAT ID copied to custom fields.

    This is a must-have primitive feature in e-commerce platform.

  14. Support pre-ordering simple/variable subscriptions

    This would be a big upgrade and require lots and lots of testing.
    - Save pre-order options for the subscription product type
    - Test interaction between subscription changing add to cart button text and pre-orders changing it -- probably want to let pre-orders override them, so this would mean hooking into the filters at a later priority
    - Testing with free trials & sign up fees
    - Gateway support - this is the largest item and biggest unknown. It's likely that Subscriptions would need to adjust it's gateway handling code to support pre-orders in some way.

  15. Points and Rewards for Failed Orders

    When a customer receives an error message about an invalid zip code or credit card details, their points events log shows "Loyalty Points earned for purchase" and "Loyalty Points adjusted for cancelled order" for every time they receive an error message.

    Usually customers press the Process Order button multiple times before realizing there is an error, which fills the points events log.

    I don't think the log item is useful to the end user. Receiving an error message about an invalid zipcode is not the same a cancelling an order.

  16. Quick postcode collection - Popup collect postcode on add to cart for tax/shipping calc

    The idea is that when a customer adds the first product to their cart they are prompted via a pop-over window to select country/ enter their post code (zipcode) without entering their full address. This allows their cart to display accurate tax / shipping estimates etc

    Ensure there is a 'no thanks' button for customers not wanting to do so.

    Have the ability to change the text of the pop-over window and the capacity to add HTML etc so you can suggest existing users login etc with appropriate links

  17. checkout but not selling (yet)

    woocommerce is a great addon for several wordpress sites.

    Is there a possibility that clients can select multiple products/services, put them in a 'cart' and goto checkout but..

    The client doesn't have to pay yet as the checkout button will send me the client's wishlist by email (read ask quote) so i can optimise/plan it taking into account his needs and whishes.

    Meaning no payment processor is needed but the client should be able to shop like anyone else, the checkout is just sending me an email.

  18. Add PDF download for physical products (for samples, detail sheets, etc.)

    It'd be great to have the option to upload a pdf to the physical products. This pdf could be a sample, a more detailed brochure, a detail sheet, etc.

    This could be a field at the backend and a nice button at the frontend.

    In our case, for example, we sell books and giving free samples or chapters we can increase our sales.

    Of course, we can now upload a sample through the media uploader and place a link into the description of the product. But that's not as clean.

  19. WooCommerce Extension: Customize Emails

    It's currently WAY too difficult to customize WooCommerce system emails. You should produce an extension that allows people more design flexibility and to customize the text easily. This is more than just a convenience- it's a branding and customer relations necessity.

    I used a plugin called WP eStore before WooCommerce and they made it very easy to customize the various email text, complete with shortcodes you could use for order specific information (http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-shortcodes-and-functions-reference-460). Something like this would be very popular and make life a lot easier for people who need that kind of control.

  20. Product variations on category/product list page with add-to-cart

    Hello,
    I have setup a restaurant menu (online food ordering) site on with wordpress+woocommerce+grid/list plugin. This is a restaurant site for many food items with half and full plate with different price. I have created product variations in admin half/full for such food items with their prices respectively. But these products are showing 'select options' button on category pages which take it to product detail page. I want to display product variation dropdown on category/product-list page itself so that customer can select and add the food half/full plate to cart without going to product detail page. The selected variation can…
