  1. Include a way to refund sales tax only for tax-exempt businesses (schools, non-profits, etc.)

    We sell software to schools and most do not send us their tax exempt certificate before they charge the purchase on their credit card. The transaction has sales tax in our state. Once we receive the tax exempt form, we must refund the taxes. But then our reports are wrong. We have over 700 schools in our state. Help!

  3. Stock level translation pluralisation

    The variable "Only %s left in stock" should be pluralised as many variations would require a plural form. For example we are currently using woocommerce for booking training places and would like the following wording but can't due to this limitation.

    "s% space(s) available"

  4. URLs for variable products

    A main feature that is missing for me when working with variable products is that I can't have different urls for the different variations. I'm thinking about something like /productname/variation/ so for example /levis-trousers/blue

    My main thought is, that I want to be able to send a friend the link to the color and without to tell him to go to this product and select the color blue for example.

  6. Edit Order Item Attribute Interface

    To edit order item attributes, a shop owner must use slugs. Furthermore, the available attributes and terms (for this product or otherwise) are not displayed in a drop-down. This requires an owner to first check whether a product has an attribute, then figure out the slug for both it and the term.

  7. More flexible free shipping

    Right now, free shipping is conditioned by either a coupon, or a minimum amount - can't be both. And when activating the coupon-conditioned free shipping, the minimum amount is not used anymore.

    The use case I'm looking for:
    - have the minimum amount linking to free shipping all the time
    - in addition, for short period of time, enable a coupon that provides free shipping whatever the amount is.

    Additionally, when using a discount coupon, it is displayed in the cart and checkout page so users can remove it. A coupon providing free shipping is not shown, so can't be…

  8. Account Balance / Log Payments

    I use WooCommerce for my personal business. For my services, clients don't pay for services all at once, they pay for services in payments or installments. It would be great to be able to log payments with the date, amount, payment type, ect.

    Once the transaction has been logged, the client can see their remaining balance inside of their account. (With this, it would be nice for client's to be able to add money onto their account as well for automatic payments made through another gateway, or by the admin manually adding it money to their available balance.)

  9. Make WooCommerce Layered Nav widget available on all pages

    The Layered Nav widget should be able to be shown on all pages of the site, not just product pages. If you're setting up a commerce site, you want clients to be able to search by product attributes when they first click into your site (on the home page) without having to make the home page your Shop page.

  10. Coupons - Fix or improve 'Limit usage to X items' function

    A good idea might be to add the ability to choose if the coupon is applied to the lowest valued item, the highest valued, a certain category, first/last added item etc. Just the ability to discount a single item in the cart that matches the criteria with a coupon code.

  11. User selectable number of products per page

    Add the option for users to select how many products are shown by page. Personally when I go to a site and I'm looking at products, I like to list all the products on a single page as it is easier to view them.

    Currently there is no way for users to do this and they have to click through every page which can lose visitors. Their only option is to change the sorting order.

    It is common to offer options like ** 12 / 24 / 48 / 96 / All ** for example.

  12. Validate user registration

    The admin have to accept the user registration before he can buy in the shop.
    The user fill the form and send the registration info, and the admin receive an email informing of this registration. The user also receive an email explaining that the admin has to accept his registration.
    And when he is accepted, the user receive an email and can enter to the shop.

  13. [Amazon S3 Storage] Add support for CloudFront

    As of now the extension only supports S3 URL's. Add an optional configuration in the extension where the customer can set up the extension to use CloudFront URL's if they have CDN enabled on their account.

  14. mass edit categories and filter subcategorie

    Mass edit categories and change order of categories because actually when you create categories, the first begin the last in the order.

    It would be great to get drop down as product for categories and sub categories to find more easier when we have a lot of them

  15. Admin Collapse/Expand Product Categories

    when we have a large number of categories in the back-end it would be great to have folding categories, categories that collapse/expand or accordion style. for the product categories page.

  16. Improve Product Variations

    With the current system you have to setup your attributes and then apply them to the product.

    Now products with three drop boxes and each box has 10 options all with different prices you would have to implement 1000 different variations which would take forever.

    Imagine if you have 4 drop boxes all with 10 options. You would have 10,000 possible combinations.

    The system currently used by Woo Commerce is old and needs improving.

  17. Host translations of premium plugins

    WooCommece.com should language packs for it's premium plugins. Ideally, these would be open to translation by the community and then served via WordPress automatically the same way plugins hosted at WordPress.org are.

    I'm not sure if that last part is possible, but at the least it would be a big boon for the non-English speaking sites of the world to get translations for a single source versus having to translate every premium plugin themselves.

  18. Improve the error message detail level for "Invalid or duplicated SKU."

    Which is it? Invalid or a duplicate? If invalid, what's invalid about it? (special characters? too long? what?) If it's duplicated, is the duplicate a variation within the same product? Is it another product? Provide a link to the duplicate product in the error message.

  19. Different consumer and distributor ordering options through WooCommerce

    I have a situation where I want to use WooCommerce to allow consumers and distributors to see and order different products through the same site. For example, I want consumers to come, browse products, buy, etc but without seeing the larger, bulk ordering options that distributors can order. I would expect that distributors would have to login to see the "distributor" options.

  20. Action hooks on product data tabs.

    It would be nice if there were action hooks on each product data tab. These could be used to add specific instructions to users about each tab.

    Some have hooks, but others do not.

    For example: The attribute tab. Users currently have to save a post after adding attributes in order for them to appear in the variations tab. I want to add a nice little paragraph explaining that to users, but there is currently not a hook to do so.
