Of course Trusted Shops customers may embed their quality seals or further Trusted Shops Products as genuine Seller and Product Reviews by adapting just a few options within WooCommerce Germanized.

Properly Implemented

While developing WC Germanized we have specifically considered clean integration within WooCommerce and WordPress by adapting core functionality. Most of the changes are made by using Hooks & Filters so that Germanized is compatible to almost every Theme.

SEPA Direct Debit & Pay By Invoice for WooCommerce

With WooCommerce Germanized 1.4 you may offer Pay by Direct Debit and Pay By Invoice to your customers. Using SEPA Direct Debit checkout fields for IBAN, BIC and Account Holder will be automatically added and verified during checkout. Furthermore the customer may preview his SEPA Mandate before submitting the order. Starting with 1.6 shop managers may easily export SEPA Mandates in XML format to import mandates to their house bank our banking software. Pay By Invoice may be optionally restricted to regular customers only.

Pro: WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips

As a Pro User of WC Germanized you may automatically or manually create PDF Invoices and Packing Slips for your orders. Doing so you may customize the PDF layout to meet your Corporate Design. You may upload your head of a letter which will be used as background for your PDF's. With only a few clicks you may export (CSV, zip) invoices for your tax consultant or accountant.

New: Attach legally relevant Pages (e.g. Terms & Conditions) as PDF documents to specific WooCommerce Emails.

Tax Calculation for Shipping Costs and Fees

WooCommerce Germanized supports complicated calculation of shipping/fee taxes for "mixed" shopping carts (that is: cart contains multiple tax rates e.g. 7% and 19%). In that case tax has to be calculated proportional (based on tax rate share in comparison to total amount).

Pro: Theme Support

Professional Users benefit from specific Support of popular Themes. For those Themes we make sure that WooCommerce Germanized Options are visible and visually appealing. At the moment professional version supports the following Themes:

  • Enfold
  • Flatsome
  • Storefront
  • Virtue

Pro: Premium Support

Customers of WC Germanized Pro enjoy our qualified Germanized Support via Tickets. Of course we also seek to offer a good Plugin Support via WordPress Support Forums.

Double Opt In for WooCommerce

A new judgement of a German Court makes Shop Managers nervous about whether Double Opt In is required for Online Shops. Therefor WC Germanized offers Double Opt In Support for WooCommerce. After creating an account the customer receives an activation link via Email. Inactive customers may be automatically deleted after a certain amount of time. Starting with version 1.6 one may deactivate the checkout for inactive customers. To make this possible, registration has to be separated from the checkout - of course customers may still checkout as guests (if enabled).

Pro: Conclusion of Contract

By default WooCommerce does not offer a distinction between receiving and confirming the order. WooCommerce Germanized Pro offers a feature to manually examine orders before confirming them to the customer. Shop managers may check order details and then manually confirm the order through a Button in the WooCommerce Backend.

Delivery to DHL Parcel Shops

You may optionally choose to offer delivery to DHL parcel shops or pick-up stations. Customers may find a parcel shop nearby by embedding an overlay of the DHL search API. On choosing a parcel shop within the overlay the corresponding data is automatically added to the checkout fields.

eKomi Integration

Shop managers who are using eKomi as a Review Management Service may easily integrate it's features within WooCommerce. Easily set up eKomi by adapting a few Settings within WooCommerce Germanized.
