  1. Advanced Product Labels; Apply to product detail page

    The idea is to apply the set product labels also to the product detail page instead of only on the product archive page.

    Maybe only when a checkbox is marked?

    • Front-end Customer and Admin booking Calendars

      Please add a shortcode that will embed a Bookings calendar to front-end pages. If the calendar could be user-specific (for clients who book) and admin-specific (for staff to view easily) that would be amazing.

        • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

          Nowadays, many resellers involved in B2B no longer carry inventory on hand. They rely instead on wholesalers. These wholesalers hold the stock and set pricing based on the manufacturer's guidelines. These wholesalers can also, when needed, blind drop ship products to the reseller's end-customer.

          These wholesalers have e-commerce capabilities themselves, that can be consulted on an ad hoc basis or through electronic data interchange (EDI), provide on-line, real-time access to the stock they hold and pricing info, which can then be outputted on the reseller's own e-commerce shop.

          Developing a plugin that would enable Woocommerce to take in those wholesaler's…

          • Layaway Option

            Layaway option for products:

            In addition to the "Add to Cart" button, have a "Add to Layaway" option where the customer can reserve the item for a portion of the total cost, as downpayment. Then mark the item as "Layaway" so no one else can buy it. Allow the customer to make additional payments later on. Once the customer pays the full amount, take the product off layaway, and proceed with the normal order processing on the backend.

            Additional functionality:
            - require the customer be signed in to take advantage of the feature
            - optionally add a financing cost or…

            • Product-to-List Integration for AWeber (and MailChimp)

              Adding customers to a product-specific list is critical for segmentation in email marketing. Other major shopping carts, including e-Junkie and WP eStore, have this function. It would be so helpful to be able to designate an AWeber list for each product vs. the current scenario of one list for the shop. The MadMimi extension for WooCommerce already supports this.

                  I assume you are asking for this in themes? It’ll most likely be better suited in a Subscribe and Connect plugin we’re working on. :)

                • Dynamic Pricing To Include Tax Exempt for Wholesalers & Distributors

                  "Dynamic Pricing To Include Tax Exempt Option for Wholesalers & Distributors"

                  I wanted to bump a post from over a year ago to see if there was any further development. Here was the post:

                  "With the dynamic pricing extension it would be great to be able to define User Groups that are Tax Exempt (i.e. Resellers, Wholesalers, and Distributors)"

                  This would be an amazing addition for those who deal with both retail and wholesale clients on one website. 99.9% of our wholesale clients have resale certificates, so taxes do not apply to them, but there is no way to differentiate…

                  • Dynamic pricing / Regular pricing to work in conjunction with coupon codes.

                    In many cases, we set products in discount that we do not want coupon codes to be applied on top of these catalog discounts, currently when creating a coupon code it allows you choose not to apply a coupon if other coupons were already applied and it will be great to add the same option to not be applied if other price rules have already been applied.

                      Once a user has an active subscription not much can currently be done in the form of coupons/discounts. It would be nice to have the ability to do any of the below:

                      - Allow the user to apply coupons to his active subscription giving either another 1 time discount or additional subscription time
                      - Allow users to gift free subscription time to other users which could then be applied to an active subscription
                      - Redeem points for additional subscription time for an active subscription
                      - Allow store credit to be used as payment method on more than the initial billing…

                      • Update the Bookings plugin for more flexibility at setting times

                        There are certain limitations with the Bookings plugin. For example:
                        I have a tour that is Monday 09:00 to 12:00 and Tuesdays 12:00 to 15:00 and I can't set it this way. I think a lot of users are in similar scenarios with their product or services. Thanks

                          To create a product from the phone and quickly get the picture would be a great idea to introduce a lot of inventory quickly.

                              When a single event has multiple dates/times that tickets are available (e.g. a concert with more than one show, matinee/evening, etc), it would be great to be able to distinguish that within the ticket from other ticket products of the same event.

                              • Square sync orders

                                It's great that we can sync inventory with Square now, but what about syncing orders? When it comes to finalizing accounting books, it takes more work to add orders from two locations.

                                It would be great if square orders showed up in woo commerce with some sort of pre-fix, maybe even a symbol, highlight or something.

                                • Pre-order improvements

                                  Improve Pre-Orders as the current version only allows 1 pre-order item in cart at all times. Thus we're not able to add normal items nor multiple pre-order items.

                                  This makes it harder for customers to purchase from us, who are mainly carrying items via pre-order.

                                  Better to improve it by letting everyone able to pre-order any amount of items they need and have a cart of various pre-order and normal products.

                                  Quite urgent as we can't keep stocks of the full product range, but only those we know can move =)

                                  Thanks!

                                  • (Pre)authorize only checkout for Paypal and Stripe

                                    It's usually good practice to only charge the customer's card when products are ready to ship. By default, Woocommerce will immediately charge the customer, even though products may not ship for another couple of days. Ideally, I'd like Woocommerce to verify the card information upon checkout, then charge the card once the order has been marked as completed in the admin UI.

                                    Both Stripe and Paypal standard are capable of doing this. For Paypal standard, you simply pass an additional paymentaction = authorization parameter, and you can later capture the payment using the API. https://developer.paypal.com/webapps/developer/docs/classic/paypal-payments-standard/integration-guide/Appx_websitestandard_htmlvariables/

                                    The official Stripe plugin already…

                                    • newsletter sign-up coupon generator

                                      Would be great to have an extension to generate a unique (one time use) coupon code for each newsletter subscriber. This would only allow one coupon per email address. If you like the sound of this send in your votes and let's see this in action. Cheers

                                        I'm surprised this isn't on here already. FastSpring is a killer payment solution for small business websites.

                                        • WooCommerce & SAP Business One.

                                          I suggest to create a Plugin to link WooCommerce with SAP Business One.
