  1. [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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. filter options based on product categories instead of using layered menu

    so you don't have to make attributes (like a brand for example) to get filters working

  5. Create Custom Orders Table

    This plugin improves WooCommerce performance by introducing a custom table to hold all of the most common order information in a single, properly-indexed location.
    Background

    WooCommerce 3.0 introduced the notion of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) interfaces in a move to unify the way WooCommerce data is stored and retrieved. However, orders are still stored as custom post types within WordPress, with each piece of order information (billing address, shipping address, taxes, totals, and more) being stored in post meta.

    In fact, WooCommerce will typically create over 40 separate post meta entries for every single order. If your store…

  6. 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.

  8. Detailed reports - including variations

    Right now the Reports section tells how many units of a product were sold in a very basic manner.

    It would be great if there were detailed reports that includes a filter (like orders in processing, orders in completed etc.) and the breakdown of sales by variations. Here's an example -

    Filter: PROCESSING
    Product: Harry Potter t-Shirt
    Variations:
    Boy's (Small): 19
    Boy's (Medium): 11
    Girl's (Large): 7 ... etc.

    OR

    Filter: COMPLETED
    Product: iPhone cover
    Variations:
    () Dragon Print: 129
    (
    ) My Precious: 114
    (*) Batman : 207 ... etc.

  9. Reports Best Selling Attributes

    Our client has a shop that sells a type of product with different "flavours" as attributes. It would be so useful to get a report of the best selling flavours to aid marketing and stock levels.

  10. 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.

  11. give us back "sort by inventory" in the products page

    Since the upgrade to 2.0, we have lost the ability to sort by product inventory level in the product admin screen. for myself, this is a vital and basic feature that is no longer available. we were able to sort by stock levels, set those higher stocked products as featured, import our CSV inventory feed from our distributor and sort again by stock levels to see what has changed, move ALL out of stock products to pending at the same time, etc.

    Even with the inventory extension offered for an extra $29, you can not do these basic functions for…

  12. Disable/hide category and all the products within

    Most web shops have the ability to temporary hide a category and it's products. Like f.i. Christmas products. You don't want those visible all year around, and you don't want the trouble to hide/show hundreds of products twice a year.

    There should definitely be an option called "Disable this category", which would hide it from the shop and the product category widget, and also hide the products inside it. If the product has more than one category, it should still appear in those, and be accessible by it's permalink.

    We have several clients complaining about this missing feature.

  13. Replace all tables with divs (Can I get an "Amen"?)

    Tables are just the worst. If we really want to make WooCommerce the best e-commerce platform for Wordpress, I would think the use of tables in any and every instance needs to go. AmIright?

    We all know the incredible features of these outdated "structure" tags, so I won't go into those, but it would be a million times easier to manipulate nearly every aspect of the WooCommerce style and layout if it were built using divs rather than tables.

  14. 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.

  15. change variation "description" fields to WYSIWYG editors

    The variations' "description" field needs to be WYSIWYG like the main/parent product's "short description" field is, since that is the same field inside the variation. Not sure why it is just a textarea, I don't want to have to keep coding HTML in variation descriptions

  16. 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.

  17. Hide empty categories when layered filter is set to OR

    An easy setting that already is made by Nicola Mustone - WooCommerce. Pleas enable this by default or give a choice.

    woocommerce/includes/widgets/class-wc-widget-layered-nav.php

    if ( $count > 0 ) {

    echo '<li ' . $class . '>';
    
    echo '<a href="' . esc_url( apply_filters( 'woocommerce_layered_nav_link', $link ) ) . '">' . $term->name . '</a>';

    echo ' <small class="count">' . $count . '</small></li>';

  18. Multiple Sale Date Ranges

    I have a client that sells used furniture. The client sets an original price, which drops every 'x' days for an 'x' amount of price changes. I would like the ability to have multiple date ranges for sales (5 would be sufficient for most cases I think).

  20. Make non-price changing attributes display the same as price changing attributes on order screen

    Hi There,

    We've spotted that when an order is placed, any variations/attributes that don't affect the price are displayed as slugs, rather than titles.

    This has resulted in one of our clients, who sells t-shirts, sent the wrong colour because they just changed the name of the attribute variation, whereas the slug remained the same.

    Furthermore, I cannot imagine it's great usability for people (as this client sells a lot of green t-shirts, every attribute is "23902-green", for example).

    I think it'd be better as titles.
