  1. 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

    • create products in WooCommerce iOS app

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

      • Delay Start of Subscription

        I wondered if there was a way to offer an option to delay the start of a subscription? I want to market my subscription as a present, which means the subscription should be available from the time the present is given not from when it is purchased.

        • Set low stock notification threshold per product (rather than globally)

          Right now it seems like the qty at which to send a low stock notification is set globally (once for all products). This creates problems if you have different lead times with suppliers. For instance, if you have a product that sells once per day and reorders have a two week leadtime, you need to set the notification to trigger at qty 20 or so to be safe. If you have an item that hardly ever sells, and you can restock it within a few days, maybe a low-stock notification of qty 1 will work.

          I think it is vital…

          • WooCommerce Memberships: Member Reports

            Add member reports to WooCommerce Memberships. This reports would show aggregated data on members, such as:

            - Number / percentage of members by plan (pie chart)
            - Number / percentage of members by status (pie chart)
            - Average length of membership by plan (bar graph)
            - Membership length by percentage (members in 0-1 week, 1-2 weeks, etc).

                • 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

                  • 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.

                      Would like the ability to split tender on POS sales. So a customer can pay part in cash and part in cc, etc....

                      Would also like to be able to get a report of the daily, monthly, etc... in to payment types.

                          • Block / Blacklist Certain Bad Customers via IP, email, etc.

                            The problem:
                            I have a few customers who are crooks and buy items, have them delivered, them open disputes with Paypal, Amazon, and Credit Card companies and claim they never got the goods and they get their money back. Paypal is the worst because even with 100% proof using tracking numbers and delivery confirmation, they still tend to side on behalf of the buyer and pull money from my account. Not cool.

                            The Solution:
                            I'd love to see a plugin that would allow me to "Blacklist" or stop certain known bad-customers from being able to checkout and place new orders.…

                              • Block Bookings on Woocommerce bookings

                                In the case of say a personal trainer or driving instructor, they should be able to take block bookings. For example, a client would go on the website and book Weds @ 7.30pm for the next 6 weeks and pay for all 6 weeks in 1 go, rather than have to book each week separately.

                                • Coupons for Subscriptions with a Free Trial

                                  If a subscription has a free trial, you cannot apply a product discount. We use the 3rd party subscription sync plugin to make all subscriptions bill on the 1st of the month (which really should be native functionality). To make that work it adds a free trial equal to the number of days left in the month. But because of this, we cannot offer incentive discounts off the first month, which is a major limitation. Please implement this asap.

                                  • Integrate with Endicia (or UPS) for shipping labels

                                    Since our shop receives 20+ orders/day, manual entry of customer data into Endicia takes way too long!

                                    We have another store on a different cart which has an Endicia integrator. It does the following:
                                    > delivers a list of processed orders, sorted by shipping speed and domestic/intl
                                    > exports an XML from the cart for selected orders
                                    > imports it into Endicia
                                    > validates addresses
                                    > prints labels
                                    > then delivers a new XML file which we re-import into the cart
                                    > cart automatically notifies the customer that their order has shipped, including tracking #.

                                    This has saved us countless…

                                        • Discontinued Products option under Inventory > Stock Status

                                          Out of Stock option usually means temporarily out of stock. It could be a case when product has been discontinued and of stock forever. You may want to keep the product page alive (for SEO or other purpose) but you do not want to confuse shoppers and give them hope that out of stock product will be back.
