wow... did woocommerce ever screw this one up! my client has to have a shipping calculator and this so-called upgrade just fried it. :/

Be aware of this Plugin, if your store is getting big
By , for WP 4.5.2

It might be a good plugin for WordPress. Sure you can put in your Products, connect with PayPal and have Customer related Stuff you can manage easily from the Backend.

As the Title says. Hopefully your Online Shop is not getting big...
Just Google - "Transients WooCommerce"

There you can read horror stories about slow Backend, Server Errors, over a million rows in the options table and so on... no help - because this tool just is programmed to do so...

Is not friendly for custom themes.

This version will not install on a clean WordPress site
By , for WP 2.5.3

All I get when I try to activate this is "The plugin does not have a valid header."

problem when activating
By , for WP 4.4.2

After installing this plugin and pressing activate i could not enter my admin dashboard anymore.
After searching the internet for some info, i saw that many people had this problem over the past few years.
Sometimes exacly the same problem or sometimes another big crash after installing this plugin.
Just simply deleting the plugin via ftp didn't work it only made it worse.
Anyway... after a few hours i finaly got rid of the problem.

I have never had this before with any other plugin.

Thnx for this interesting night of troubleshooting, i wil not use your plugin ever again!

I hate I wasted my time with this!

This plugin REQUIRES that you collect ALL billing details from customer such as their billing address even if you're not shipping a physical product and don't need it. You'd figure an eCommerce plugin of all things would have more flexibility than this. That's just forcing the customer to fill out extra fields if they're not absolutely needed - which is known to reduce conversions.

I brought this to the attention of Mike (the creator or this plugin) several times and he had the nerve to tell me that it's not possible to take an order without all these details "without knowing who it's from". Anyone who has done business on the net for any period of time knows that's utter Bullsh#! You don't need to force a customer to give out their address and other unnecessary personal details unless you're shipping a physical product. And I'm surprised he even responded with a lame response like that supposedly being an "eCommerce Expert" and all. Must think I'm stupid or something.

At first I thought this plugin and the people behind it would be great to work with, but now it comes across as just another hyped up plugin boosted up by puppet reviewers! I hate I wasted my time fooling with this! And I'm not the only one who has complaints about this. There are similar complaints all through the forum and in Google, and many have gone unanswered. I'm not surprised lack of help and senseless responses that I received.

Stay Away

Impossible to use for small business. NO timely support. Facebook (no response there) Woocommerce (no response there,) WPforum and no response either. NO answers to properly solve problems and continue working normally as a small business.

Is not friendly for custom themes.

WooCommerce doesn't work very good with your own design/custom themes. Each product creates it's own product/name page that has very bad styling and this can't be edited.

WooCommerce-Not so great
By , for WP 4.4.1

With all the hype around how good it would be to use this tool, i have been throughly disappointed.

First: The response times for the support team is beyond pathetic, which wouldnt be so bad if they had a forum that i could easily post into and search around... however, every time i try and use the support tab, i end up getting logged out. So i cannot actually post any comments.

Second: When i finally got in touch with someone about my issues, i responded that their customer support was 'pathetic'. I was later told that that type of aggressive language will not be tolerated and they would not hesitate to end our 'relationship'...

So, after being threatened and receiving the absolute worst customer support since comcast, i would avoid this tool unless you have the following:
Ability to hire a developer to solve the bugs for your
or
Ability to solve the bugs on your own... because there are a SHIT load of bugs.

good luck.
