    Hey guys, so it looks like it has not been implemented yet.
    I wonder if people are ready to escrow money and how much? If 50 people can escrow $200 each, I might get back to the implementation. For those who don't understand what's going on, please see my recent posts.

    Hi Andrew. I haven't made any progress since then because I didn't see a lot of users who would subscribe to buy it when it's ready - in other words, lack of interest. And then it was said that WooCommerce is development something to fill the niche.

    Actually, very few people have booked to buy the plugin when it's ready - less than 5...

    What if everyone who wants to buy the plugin messages me at @meglio ? So I know how many people are there wanting to buy the plugin. Thanks!

    Thank you all for your interest. Okay, let me get to it at the weekend and I'll report the progress here. I'm quite limited to discuss any prices here because I got banned once already here when I talked about money.

    yokotsume, unfortunately I don't have such a date in my mind because it is not funded and I do it on my spare time. However, I need that functionality for myself, so I'm sure it will be done sooner or later. In my previous comments there are some screenshots that show some progress that have been done already.

    Hello everyone. Yes, it's absolutely possible, but since it's not funded, I cannot dedicated enough time to code it quickly. I'm coding it in my spare time, and I'm too in need of such a plugin, so it will definitely come.

    Hi! I'm back to developing it now as the situation in Ukraine has stabilized.

    Hi @Isaac and thank you for your opinion and feedback.
    I'd be happy to do introduce all that, and even more.
    The only issue is that the situation isn't stable at all here in Ukraine, as you know there is a political crisis in Crimea and crime got activated everywhere around here.
    So my development time isn't stable and I have got a lof of offline things to sort out while it's not stable in our country. I'll keep everyone informed on progress though.

    @Ken, how is that different to what the Multi Vendor (official Woo plugin) does?

    That's what I'm working on right now. Bear with me and you'll be able to use the qualitative multi-domain plugin.

    This doesn't intersect with being able to select default currency for every domain.

    Henryk, I'm currently trying to setup plugins making business, but until it is not set I cannot spend lots of time on it - a hour ir two daily plus weekends.

    You could help by spreading the info about or buying my first Woo extension: http://bit.ly/coupon-locker

    I'll release the very first. Ersion as soon as it is usable to some extent - at least having different products, categories and menu per domain. Otherwise it would look just incomplete.

    I'm almost sure CodeCanyon will underestimate all the engineering which is taking place this dide - the plugin is not easy to build - so chances are I'll build a separate website for it and will sell it for ~$79 per one installation. But I'd be happy if discussion was more alive here, so I would know there are at least 30..50 potential buyers right from the start. There are so many voices for this feature but when it comes to having a real plugin opportunity, I don't see enough feedback and this makes me doubt.

    I don't know MarketPress. I had been a subscriber of WPMU but to be fair I didn't like their plugins at all (just my personal opinion) - the way it's made inside, from programmer's point of view. But anyhow, I don't see how it relates to WooCommerce at all - it looks like their plugin is not aimed for Woo. Right?

    Yes, Ken, currently it's possible with a standard WooCommerce over WordPress multisite - that is what you get by default, completely separate stores for every child blog. And that is why I'm developing the Multiple Domains plugin - to allow for the opposite, i.e. one single WordPress blog to host the same store under multiple domains, restricting products, categories and tags to specific domains, but managing everything from within a single backend.

    Anyone can give me Multi-Currency WooCommerce Extension so I could make multi-domain plugin compatible with it?

    Update: Products filter by domain has been implemented:

    Dear WooCommerce users. A multiple domains plugin is being developed. It allows for multiple stores to be run under their own domains but still have all products, users and sales managed from a single blog installation.

    I'd be happy to hear your ideas and features requests.

    Currently the most basic feature has been implemented: it allows to restrict products by domain names:

    A lot of people want run their store for multiple countries, like this:

    store.com
    store.co.uk
    store.au
    ... etc

    So I'll need to allow to override a lot of WooCommerce settings based on the domain used to access the store. I know how to do it and just need time to implement it all.

    As about categories, I'm thinking of allowing the same domain constraints to be applied for product categories.

    Here is what I have so far for products:
    http://imageshack.us/a/img716/4075/xgy0.png

    Of course it will allow for any domains, not only top-level domain variations (e.g. .com, .co.uk etc).
    What you see in the Domains column is just short captions assigned to domains (which you can assign to anything, but shorter is better for faster visual identification).

    Hi Henryk

    I've started already and so far I have implemented domain constraints for products, i.e. every product can be disabled/enabled for one or more domains.

    Re different layout for product categories - how does it relate to domains? Could you explain what do you mean exactly?

    Next things to do:
    - language per domain
    - override currency and price for domain
    - integrate with wp multilanguage plugin
    - probably constrain categories to domains as well
    - constrain posts/pages to domain
    - allow to use different menu for every domain

    Hope it makes sense.

    What worries me is that there are so many votes for this feauture but almost no one interacts with me and gives feedback to the implementation approach, and so I'm afraid there is no really much demand for this functionality.

    I'm thinking of doing a plugin where you can run ONE WordPress (single installation) for multiple domains. But I would like to know how many people do really want this feature the way I proposed to do.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Anton Andriyevskyy commented  · 

    Continuing my previous thoughts, the only approach I can see to achieve the goal is as follows:

    - manage all products from the main blog

    - map multiple domains to the same blog (instead of creating multiple secondary blogs!)

    - make a 'stores' table with domain assigned for each store

    - for each product, assign store_ids option:
    --- empty string to make product available under any domain mapped to the blog
    --- store ID or multiple comma-separated IDs to make the product only visible for particular domains

    - implement all hooks needed to filter products (still posts in terms of WordPress)

    Drawbacks:
    - you will still have one blog
    - some tricks needed to make the same cart show under multiple domains

    Benefits:
    - serve the same shop under multiple domains and filter products by domain
    - manage your shop from one place
    - one big table for all sales made

    The setup described below is very problematic because following reasons:
    - different shop owners would consider different things to be shared between secondary shops; there is no one strong wish what to sync and what to not; as a simplest but very tricky example would be: stock management, SKU values, coupons;

    - Woocommerce heavily utilizes native WordPress internal post/page objects (yes, product is a kind of WordPress post adapted for the shopping engine) - and those are strictly bound to personal websites. Woocommerce doesn't use global products table which would allow to make both per-blog and global products by having a nullable blog_id column. Changing this would require rewriting the whole WooCommerce core engine, unfortunately.

    Btw, for those who want the same store for multiple countries/regions under subdomains, would it help to assign multiple domains for the same blog (with domain mapping plugin) and just have products translated by WPML? Why shouldn't it work?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Anton Andriyevskyy commented  · 

    There are a lot of questions though. Should be cart global or local to the child site? Should all the reporting be global or local? And so on.

    Because Woo is based on per-blog tables (it doesn't create global per-site tables), and because product, order, coupon [....] IDs are all local and are not only stored in table columns, but also in serialized values [e.g. postmeta table], it would be extremely hard to make products syncing between per-blog stores.

    It is possible to sync main product properties, but then it's almost impossible to take care of everything related to your products.

    I'm not even thinking of having global tables for products because products are fully backed by native WordPress post entity and cannot be easily extracted into a different kind of essense.

    Moreover, it's still not clear how to deal with sales and all the statistics. Should sales be tracked separately per-blog or globally per-site? I'm sure there would be some people wanting for either first or second option, which makes writing such a plugin much harder.

    Asking Woo to support global cart means asking them to rewrite the core engine of Woo, unfortunately.

    I'd be happy to try to develop such a plugin and I have a few ideas, but after reading all ~100 comments below I still can't figure out what exactly people want. "I want a global cart" just doesn't work because too many questions arises and no one clearly answers them [unfortunately].

    I have been finding similar requests here and there, but I'm not sure if there is enough demand for such a plugin. If you personally like it, could you please describe exactly what do you need and how it's different to how Woo functions currently? -- thanks.

    Re multilanguage multistore installation: what's benefit of having one global store but then different language, pictures, prices and payment processor configuration for every sub-store? Is it not the same as having multiple separate stores, e.g. en.store.com, fr.store.com, it.store.com.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Anton Andriyevskyy commented  · 

    Can someone explain more exactly what this idea is about?
    Is it to have ONE set of products, categories and tags across all sites in multisite installation, and even ONE cart, ONE set of payment methods and ONE settings - all globally across all websites?

    Integration with ClickBank is problematic because ClickBank doesn't support cart - i.e. you cannot combine multiple products into one order. How would you address this if you had ClickBank integration?

    Please correct grammatical errors in your Features section. It doesn't look professional when there are errors and chances are people won't buy it a lot.

    How would this prevent people to share downloaded content directly?

    Andres Helbo, does it not function exactly as a multiple-stock website when used with WordPress multisite?
