WooCommerce is a powerful, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.
Using it for my ecommerce site, it's a very good and easy to use plugin, with a few major drawbacks:
1) It is currently impossible, with any existing plugin, to set a minimum password strenght for users. Even a single letter can be used as a password, and there is no way to avoid it!
2) Official plugins are really expensive and lack basic features. You are 99% of the time better off with plugins from the Envato marketplace, or even free ones.
Solve these issues, and it deserves 5 stars.
I've just spent 4 months working on a subscription site that involved a considerable amount of customisation of WooCommerce's core functionality. While I was impressed with WooCommerce itself, the platform is let down by some of the third-party plugins which it sells on its site and the customer service when things go wrong.
I experienced problems with Shipping Multiple Addresses, Subscriptions, Product Add-ons and the Stripe payment gateway plugin. While most of these problems were fixed within about 7 days, some issues went unresolved for weeks. Despite telling customer service reps that I'm an experienced WordPress/PHP developer and, even after fixing a couple of bugs for them, their responses were often robotic and they continued to write to me as if I was a complete novice!
It's a great plugin, but it misses a way to protect PDF (or digital products).
As I'm selling PDF files, I'd like to have a way to put the buyer's name into single page. Is it possible? (a free plugin, I mean).
But, I recommend it :)
I was excited to come across WooCommerce for my needs, and I have purchased their Booking and Points extensions (relatively expensive at $300, plus more extensions I will need, plus customization, in order to make these work for me).
So far, I am rather underwhelmed by Support, especially given how relatively expensive the extensions are. The forums are full of mostly unanswered questions, and I find forums the best support tool since often others have experienced the same issue as you and you can often find an instant solution rather than having to submit a support ticket.
So far, submitting a support ticket results in at least 2 days in between responses, which is highly inefficient especially given the back-and-forth that is generally needed to solve a problem. Furthermore, given all the products they have, their documentation and forums are very difficult to browse or search; not organized as well as they should be.
I'm seriously considering giving up on WooCommerce, which is a shame because they otherwise seem to have a lot of the products that could be useful for me.
I recommend people also check out Easy Digital Downloads for a similar customizable WP eCommerce platform. While I was unable to use them (don't have booking plug-in I need), there support was so much better (great forums and very responsive, even by their main management) and their pricing better across the board.
I find it impossible to order.
I get to the part where user / customer enters their address, but the record does not run.
Do I have any configuration error or plugin that WP and WC have versions that are incompatible?
Actually i am using woocommerce is good for shopping cart,but some functionality are critical.....
The Order notes option is NOT working anymore after updating to 2.1.0
Order notes is a super important part of my order process as i comunicate via it with customers when order is completed and for download link etc.
