sequential order numbers
Who, running an e-commerce store, wants a seemingly random sequence of order IDs as the default?
I know, plugins both free and 'premium' exist for this, but am I alone in thinking that this is fundamental enough that it should be in the core of WooCommerce?
I've read the issue thread on GitHub, and it seems to have been nixed there.
I think the problem is as much with the freemium model of WooCommerce, where you get a certain amount for nothing, but then you have to buy small increments of functionality from 3rd parties. When those purchases result in a % going back to WooThemes, then there's less incentive to make a paid plugin redundant with a core change. Yes, that's harsh, but I'm struggling to see what else is stopping it from happening.
