Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Disappointing

  • I have heard so much about WooCommerce and their growing number of plugins, since I began developing websites several years ago. Tonight, I finally decided to download WooCommerce and invest in a couple of their plugins. I thought that the documentation would match the plugins, seamlessly, since WooThemes developed both WooCommerce and the plugins.

    Apparently, they made some changes in their products lately. Links that lead to a necessary WooCommerce plugin download are broken. There is an announcement that they have discontinued the plugin and that the plugin that I need is built into the newer version of the WooCommerce software. However, I have dedicated 2 hours to this issue and have not been able to find a solution.

    The documentation does not match my experience. I have lost a total of 4 hours of work trying to find solution to a couple of issues, and I am not able to duplicate what their documentation says should be happening with my website. So, I finally submitted a couple of help tickets.

    Normally developers say that they will get back to you in 24-48 hours. However, after I submitted my tickets, a message appeared indicating that they were at a week-long conference, and they would be doing their best to handle requests in between attending the week-long conference. They advise, in the message, that they will do their best. Meanwhile, the issues that I have are on hold. I have no idea how long it will take them to get back to me.

    I am frustrated and disappointed. I spent $300 with them and am not getting what I paid for. This is the kind of experience that I expect with FREE plugins. I was not expecting this experience with a company that is supposed to lead the E-Commerce industry for WordPress websites.

    Again. I am extremely disappointed and quite frustrated.

    Note: I have seen companies come back and try to “save face” when faced with negative responses on this website. But this company should know that I have committed the past 4 hours to trying to get aspects of their WooCommerce product to work with THEIR plugins. I spent money on their products because I believed in them. And I am not getting what I paid for.

    I would appreciate them using their time to address my issues, rather than trying to save face by attacking my post.

    Thank you

    Not sure what you’re talking about here. Woo don’t *sell* deprecated/discontinued plugins. Once they are discontinued they are removed from sale. And if its in core (whatever that is) it would be available for free?
