Order History / Reorder? (6 posts)

    Considering Woocommerce for an ecommerce project (also considering Lemonstand or Magento as full solutions).

    I have a couple of concerns with woocommerce and i'm struggling to find exact answers from reading the documentation.

    1) Sagepay can be incorported with a paid extension?

    2) When a client places an order, can a client login to a kind of dashboard / account area to show things like current order, order progress (received, processing, dispatched), order history, reorder an existing order? (My biggest concern). I wouldnt want a potential client placing an order logging into a wordpress backend for example. I would want to keep the client front end side so everything is still styled and branded like the shop.

    3) Can woocommerce be setup so that once a user has placed an order, just before it's complete they can upload files for instance which will be sent and contained in the order details area of the admin panel when the site owner comes to process the order? Think of this like a client uploading artwork on placing an order and the site owner needs the artwork in one place with the order to process it efficientally.

    4) I assume real time courier prices can be incorporated like Fedex, UPS. Anybody ever had any success with TNT (not a deal breaker).

    If someone can give an insight into some of my concerns I would much appreciate it. If there are any paid plugins/extensions that achieve any of the above - please do mention them as the project is quite a substantial one and if needs be we will purchase whatever is needed to make things work.

    I'm looking to ensure the right decision is made with the platform we build this in, whether WP, Lemonstand, Magento etc...

    Thanks in advance.

    yes to everything

    for the image upload you will need the gravity form plugin and the extention, $250 and $100 a year to GF. If you dont need the devopers licence, then GF will be cheaper.

    Never had any experine with teh courier plug in though.




    This is the theme that iam usng http://themeforest.net/item/xing-business-ecommerce-wordpress-theme/2953363 he has not turned on the reorder button, but it is there.

    Woo is is great,very easy to use for admin and end user, there support not so recently, but they seem to be working on getting it right. They got rid of there support forum, but they are bringing it back, some of the answer you get from them are stating the obvious rather than any type of solution. You have a question and they often just come back and just repeat your question? But they are working on making it better. I hope....

    In the whole thought, it well worth it

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for your reply.

    I should have said - we would be developing our own theme, not using a pre-existing one. Just wanted to make sure my requirements were possible either within whats provided in the core of woocommerce or through extensions/plugins.

    The site isn't exactly a standard ecommerce website in the sense that it will have individual product pages and such. It's more of a calculator with a set number of options/variables that determine a price before checkout but I guess the options need to come dynamically from a product list somehow?

    For instance if we were selling business cards...

    You would select the weight of card, the finish and the quantity from a calculator getting real-time prices updates on the page as you add/remove/update options before checkout.

    Anyone had experience of doing anything like this with woocommerce or any suggestions on the best way?

    Thanks again
