        Awwww, give the guy a discount! It’s good business! I bought $1000 bucks worth of stuff from you last year, and I love it. But hell, I would love to see you guys give him his $10 or $20 back just for a little holiday cheer.

            We are always extremely flexible, as much as possible. I’ve been in touch with the first commenter above and taken care of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Just to note, there was already a discount used on their order. They already had a good deal in the first place. And as someone comment below most everyone is usually aware that Black Friday is coming and knows there will be a special. If you can hold off, you’ll be able to take advantage of the deals.

      Come on now…

      Did you really think these guys would do anything above and beyond to help you?

      It’s like pulling teeth to get these guy’s help for products you pay for on a normal basis! There’s not way they’d go out of their way to help you.

      Nice try though. It was a good chuckle! Happy Holidays!

    Well that’s unfortunate…..I just spent $199 on the Subscriptions plugin the other day….Should have just waited a couple of days and saved 35% and saved myself that extra $70…Wish you had announced this was going to be coming a little earlier so I could have waited and purchased an additional plugin with that extra $70….

        Hi Ryan,

        Thanks! It is certainly appreciated and very unexpected! Will the refund automatically be credited to my Credit Card or will it be a store credit on my account for future use?

        • Ryan Ray
          November 30, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

          It’ll go back to your card used on the order. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Does the discount apply to renewals in a years time? The licensing page says this:

    Youโ€™ll be able to renew your license at a 50% off discounted rate of the original product price within 60 days of your product license expiring.

    I’m not sure it’s clear?

    • Magnus Jepson
      November 29, 2013 at 7:37 am #

      This discount does not apply to renewals, as this is already discounted at 50%.

    I’m trying to take advantage of this special offer, but your site won’t accept my payment. I have funds available in my account so what’s the problem? I presume this is something that you have encountered before, as I was able to find similar stories when I searched for advice.

    I’m based in the UK. Please let me know how to proceed.

    Never buy anything in the weeks before Black Friday! If you can wait, it’s always best (money savings wise) to do so! Thanks for the discount, I think there’s a few things I wanted to use for a few websites I’m doing!

      Sensei and a theme like Definition is a good starting point I would say.

    Is there a plugin that I can use to sell products from another website while getting the commission. I know there a plugins to sell from other retailers, but I want the retailer to know that I sold the product.

    • Ryan Ray
      November 29, 2013 at 8:11 pm #

      WooCommerce lets you create affiliate products, those essentially link to the original site to buy them from. Use your affiliate link when creating those.

      • pilatessonsbeek
        November 29, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

        yes, but does the affiliate know it is coming from my website?

        • Ryan Ray
          November 30, 2013 at 6:07 am #

          That’s why you use your affiliate link from them, they track who sent them through your custom link. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ryan Ray
      November 30, 2013 at 6:07 am #

      It doesn’t unfortunately. We can’t force them to have sales, we’ve simply linked to their products they’ve chosen to sell off site.

      Yes the coupon should work for upgrades too. You’ll see the discount in your cart when you add the coupon code.

    Cant believe people are being offensive in such a generous offer.. yes, woo changed there model although every business needs to shift in order to ensure sustainability… As for no service, Oh My, i have had nothing but positive experiences with Woo when i have come across minor issues.. even if they are caused by a novice like me, always wiling to go that extra mile.. maybe it takes 24 hours to get ticket responded too, but these poor peeps arent on my payroll and i am sure they have other pressing issues to tend to that were ahead of mine.. So be gracious, if you want the offer take it.. if you dont, you dont have too ๐Ÿ™‚

    First, I am brand new to woo. Thus far I have not had to contact support, but for their products they look and work GREAT! I am about to purchase canvas and take advantage of the discount. Like many others here, I purchased product on 11-28-13. Woo, if you can apply the discount I would be grateful.

    I got sent a direct link to a plugin by my developer. So I didn’t see the black friday deal. Is there anyway to get the discount on what I just purchased? I also need to order other plugins so I’ll use the code on that.

    Um.. a sale is a sale isn’t it? You can’t go and ask for a discount on something you bought before the sale started as a general rule from any company can you. I don’t understand what the whinging is about! Just saying…

    I tried to use the coupon, and I guess I made a mistake. It processed through without the coupon code! I paid the full price. Should I re purchase everything and get the discount and have you guys refund the initial amount or wait for a credit!? Please help. Order number #5100255299

    December 3, 2013 at 5:38 am #

    when you put in the code it said something about getting two bonus items…. I haven’t seen anywhere what they are or how to access them? Did I miss something somewhere?

    we’ve tried on numerous occasions today to purchase the subscription plug-in with the discount but it keeps declining our . The card is fine and so is all the info entered. Not sure what to do here.
    Maybe someone could call us and take the order over the phone? 646.263.6780
    Please advise,

    I’m trying to take advantage of your cyber monday special to purchase Paypal Advanced. But you don’t accept American Express and that’s the only card I have (yes I know it’s annoying). Do you have the ability to let me pay with Paypal? It will pull from my American Express but you don’t have to pay the larger fee they charge?

    I’ve been eyeing that plugin for some time now and with the cyber monday special I had to move on it, but I can’t pay for it. Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Hello I purchased some plugins on Nov. 26 before you announced the 35% Off and I noticed that you have given someone a refund on their previous order so that they could take advantage of the discount. I bought more plugins on Dec. 2nd. I would appreciate it, if you would adjust my previous Nov. 26th order. I know I’ll buy more.
