I have a love hate relationship with WooCommerce. I have used WooCommerce for a long time I have 6 different websites I manage everyday.
PROS: User friendly. I love that I can just change my stores with a touch of a button. Integration is easy. Set up is easy and quick.
CONS: The support and upgrades. The support is good, but the timing is awful. I wish they have phone support. I live in the US and sometimes having the company in RSA is very difficult especially if they need more info to address the issue. It could take days for it to be fixed simply because of the time delays. The Upgrades are sometimes not compatible with the theme and thats where errors come up. I have seen an error sometime for weeks in the dashboard before a fix comes out.
Overall, WooCommerce is better then any other service. I will continue to use WooCommerce on my site and my future sites. I just would like there to be better support.
Good one...Need to pay extra price for most of the plugins.
El plugin es fantástico pero tiene algunos detalles que se pueden mejorar.
1. Debería poder ajustarse el tamaño de los precios y modificar el color.
2. Poder modificar las fuentes, colores y tamaños.
3. Poder ordenar los productos según nuestro interés dentro del administrador.
4. Poder ordenar las categorias y subcategorias según nuestro interés dentro del administrador o incluso sobre la propia web.
5. Poner marcos a los productos para resaltarlos más y modificar el color.
Y posiblemente se me ocurrirían unas cuantas cosas más, pero en definitiva el plugin es realmente bueno a falta de pequeños detalles.
I love wordpress for blogging. It's easy, versatile, 90% of the time plugins works great.
So I thought it would be a good idea to go on with wordpress and its most popular ecommerce plugin.
But hell no, it failed me. Okay it's not a total failure. Cart and some functionalities works.
But page design is totally flawed. Nothing works out of the box. Even it's own themes. Everything must be done from the scratch.
Wordpress categories and woocommerce categories are messed up.
What shall I do with cart and payment options if there is no beautiful looking page.
Oh and it expects me to their premium themes without trials. At least you should give something first that is working or very easy to setup and ask for the rest.
This plugin and supported themes and addons require you to pay at least hundreds of bucks before you start.
Ok I know that you have families to care and you have to earn money but this is not a win-win situation.
No up2date good video tutorials. And 3rd party tutorials force you to buy their own themes. Yes there is documentation but but a quick start videos are great. It saves hours.
So I changed the framework with something out of the box solution and it's okay now. I just regret for the time I wasted with this pair.
woocommerce is great, but the update policy is not yet good. I recommend to wait two or three weeks with every update after publishing. usually there is a second or third update inbetween a few hours. That is to insecure for a webshop. I hope, this policy will be fixed anytime.
In Woocommerce plugin When we modify order by increasing product quantity from backend It is not reflecting in product stock and also when we add new product from backend for the current order that products stock also not changing.I used auto restore plugin for automatically increasing order for cancelled order but for modifying order what will i do?
Its been a complete nigthmare just trying to upload ONE single product.
Images look terrible, short description is not saved, related products can't be disabled...
I can't believe you have to spent so much time reading and trying to find a solution for every little thing which is so obvious should be more simple.. I've spent hours and hours trying to find a solution for EVERY little detail, and many of the things I've tried do not work, I've tried editing CSS; functions php, etc.. FOUR days and still can't get ONE single product to look as I want it..
It's a nigthmare
I have an issue to report (i am sure a few people have already brought this to you attention)
When I installed woocommerce, my WP signed out and forced http>>https (Chrome only). All the other browsers render everything fine.
I opened up a few other websites and found they are also broken.
My site >> aliwalshoalscubadiving.com (to see please open in Chrome)
Another site >> http://dermasolutions.co.uk/ - also broken..
Any solutions? Its a major concern because Chrome has a HUGE user base.
Positive: Woo does great in organic search and works well on a dedicated server with lots of resources. Many plugin add-ons expanding functionality. Woo keeps software updated!
Negative: Does not run well on cheap shared Gator Daddy cloud hosts.
Needs plenty of memory and cpu to run good.
Support is awful. If you pay for premium plugins you will discover licenses expire. It's like loaning tools out and having to buy them all over again. Woo is the worst I have ever seen for support. Nothing like Envato Market that tracks all your licenses and provides some support.
Theme: Catch Responsive
You'd think Woocommerce would have this figured out by now. I've come across this problem with several different themes (Woocommerce compatible and not) and there's no real help in the Woocommerce Support forum or knowledge base. They do have instructions on setting your product image size (resolution) to match that of your theme—but there is no information or accommodation for changing the size of the product feature image as it displays on the single product page.
The css is set to width: 100% height: auto —which will work fine if you plan ahead and use images for products set to be the size you want them to show up as.
The confusion starts when your product image is much larger than what you want it to display at and you expect the plugin (or your theme) to resize it automatically —not to mention responsively.
So be forewarned, when you choose product image make sure the image's full size is the size you want it to display at on your product page. This goes for "Related Products" images also. You might expect these RP images to be a thumbnail size but they're not —they also get displayed at 100% full size. Maybe I missed this information in the store setup instructions but I don't remember seeing anything like it mentioned. You'd think a FAQ on the subject would be readily available but it's not. There's a ton of support requests all over the WP.org and WooCom forums without competent answers.
Seems like a better, more professional solution would be to build into the plugin the ability to adjust the displayed feature image size on the product page within the woocommerce admin panel.
As ubiquitously used as WooCom is, I'd expect better support (free support). That's the only peeve I have with the plugin, it is otherwise excellent in its function and features.
