WooCommerce is a powerful, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.
I have to say this plugin is superbly built. The way it's structured with filters and classes gives mind-bending flexibility and compatibility. In fact everything from this company seems to be built this way. I am in awe of their theming too. The documentation is also vast and excellent, and filled with code snippets and configuration examples.
Now, the plugin is free, sure but there were a few options I just couldn't live without, like Table Rate Shipping because the out of the box shipping options were not very configurable. By the time I had all the other features I wanted, including the plugin which imports products from WPEC, I had dropped around 200USD. Considering how good the extensions really are, I still think it was a great deal.
Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars: some extensions need to be bought from WooCommerce to optimize the store, and the WooCommerce shop does not accept bitcoin for payment.
WooCommerce really needs to add a bitcoin payment gateway to their own shop!
I have tried this plugin for embedding a photo stream on my website. Simple to use and works fast http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iframe-embed-for-momentme/. It automatically collects images from social events worldwide and its free…
This plugin might be ok for small sites, but it isn't for much else. They promote it like it is a fully dynamic solution, but it isn't. The only way to get it close to that is to purchase either their $99 CSV-Import-Suite or their competitors Super Manager plugin for $97, either way, it's still not fully dynamic.
Huge oversights are:
No ability to dynamically set upcharges on attributes for variations.
No ability to dynamically set attributes for specific product types
No ability to mass-import variations (without $$$)
No ability to bulk-edit product types (to bulk change to 'product_varation'
Source is not very customizable either
I've coded ecommerce sites from scratch that handle these kind of dynamics. I had hoped to save time by using this plugin and wordpress... boy was I wrong.
If you have hundreds of products with hundreds of variations, you'll spend weeks if not months manually entering every price for every variation of every product, every sku for every variation, everything, manually. I can't even express how much time I wasted with this plugin. It's as if the developers have never actually maintained a large ecommerce store before.
that, or they are questionably pushing their overly expensive $99 extension. But that is just a band-aid, it's not fully dynamic anyway, and if you needed to change a upcharge for a variation across the board, you'd have to do another CSV import.
They should either drastically lower their CSV import suite cost, or add some decent dynamic functionality. Either way, they don't have my approval.
Worthless plugin unless you have a small store.
I had messed around with eCommerce plugins and the like, all great, but wonderfully inafective. Anyhow a chap in the USA recommended I try this beautiful plugin.
I have experimented with many ecommerce plugins for WordPress, some are pretty poor and some pretty good, and some terribly ineffective. By a stroke of luck whilst working with a coder from America, this chap recommended I test drive this spectacular plugin.
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST PLUGIN in the ecommerce arena, EVER! Wonderfully simple to use, INEXPENSIVE to everybody with many extensions available to scale up your store and really go professional with it.
Woo is an Amazing piece of commerce straight out the box! Keep up the good work guys! EPIC plugin!
I must also take my hat off to customer support, ABSOLUTELY SUPERB, a fast response time! And always get the bugs fixed.
In my humble opinion I really believe the sky is the limit for this plugin and Woo is definitely the market leader in this field. Their marketplace is ever increasing with more and more dedicated plugins becoming available. And if they haven’t got what you need in their vast library of extensions then the chances are you probably don’t need it anyway!
INCRFEDIBLE PLUGIN, This is a lifesaver for me. The plugin allowed me to get online, set up a professional store, and start selling and earning my income.
Forever in your debt Woo.
I'm using WooCommerce over and over again on sites for clients, great plugin, easy to set up, great support. Just wanted to say thanks and I'm supporting it through the premium themes and plugins.
I've used this time and again - it's a superb option for e-commerce
We've used many different ecommerce plugins for WordPress, and by far WooCommerce is the best we've seen. It's easy to use, easy to extend with new features and functionality, easy to integrate into themes, and is the most progressive in terms of ongoing development. As a result, we stopped developing add-ons for all other platforms and now focus exclusively on WooCommerce. Kudos to the WooCommerce development team.
I really hate this plugin for messing up my db and no doc for uninstall and not sure the purpose of having uninstall.php for ?
This plugin is free but warn user abt what you going to mess with and create proper doc, not half way doc .....
yes i know is free, support only valid to pay customer, but this is free plugin and we using free features not pay features ...
is cool plugin .... just can't use it cause not compatible with my theme, when deactive it but remaining .... now solve
will try it when i have more time
I purchased a Standard themes package from Woo and was charged $125. However, I cannot access themes on Woo's site, nor have I received any message from Woo confirming my purchase or for any other reason.
Payment glitches happen - I can understand that. But after sending Woo SEVEN messages in the five days after my purchase, I have received NO response. Not an automated message, nothing. Know that you cannot gain access to Woo's Help forums or paid staff until Woo recognizes your purchase. Woo also offers no phone contacts. So in my case, I am limited to sending pre-sale messages, which are going unanswered.
Too big, too fast, I suppose. The support is a huge issue for me, so I will no longer purchasing any Woo products. I sincerely hope that they at least refund my payment.
