WeRePack – Reuse Packaging for WooCommerce


This plugin is part of the WeRePack.org initiative to avoid packaging waste and helps shop owners and their customers save resources.
To do this, the plugin adds a field in the WooCommerce checkout process where customers can give their consent to receive reused shipping packaging. So simple, so effective. And with lots of customization options via filters, let us know if there’s anything else you need.

Plugin erfüllt das, was es vorgibt. Die dahinter stehende nachhaltige Initiative hilft schnell, wenn Fragen auftauchen. Insgesamt sehr gut umgesetzt.

Das Plugin tut genau das, was es in der Beschreibung verspricht: Es ist einfach in der Nutzung, kann mittels Einstellungen gut auf die eigenen Wünsche angepasst werden und der Support ist wirklich erklassig. Last but not least: Den nachhaltigen Gedanken, den das Plugin abdeckt, wäre sogar ein 6. Stern wert. Kann es nur jedem empfehlen, dieses Plugin im WooCommerce-Shop einzusetzen.
