Incoming delivery of WooCommerce goodies

Written by James Koster on October 11, 2012 Blog.

It may have been a quiet few weeks on the WooCommerce extension front, but it’s certainly not been quiet around here in general. We’ve announced our Sucuri audited WooFramework, Integrated WooCommerce support into a bunch of our business themes, released a kick-ass new theme ‘Athena’, had a tasty sale and redesigned our site to run proudly on WooCommerce.

We’ve been busy.

But so has our pool of WooCommerce developers. Whilst we’ve been focussed on tightening the bolts of the new Woo, they’ve been hard at work building new extensions. Today, we launch 6 of them.

    Ah. Just read about Product Support extension which uses BBPress and Buddypress. How’s that gonna work with Woo. In particular Canvas? I thought you guys were not Buddypress friendly? Would be ace if that’s not the case any more.

      The extension integrates WooCommerce and BuddyPress. Not our themes. So you’d probably need to do a little work there or use a theme designed to be used with both WooCommerce and BuddyPress.

    what really surprises me, that I have to buy now for every single page the same extension again! Woo-noo!


    As you need sometimes some extensions per page this increases the costs too much.
    I am not very happy with you new pricing policy as I purchased already some extensions. By the way.. Just one of my purchased 3 add-ons shows up in my backoffice (account)

      Hi Pedro,

      Please see our blog post regarding our tiered licensing structure. You could purchase an unlimited license for the extensions you’d like to use across multiple websites. 🙂

        thanks 4 your reply Matty

        add-ons are often 49,- / before 35,- and I do rarly need the same extensions for different clients. It would be a personal risk to buy every add-on for unlimited usage because I might need it for other clients some time. This could generate hundreds of Dollars.

        As well it does not answere my question from my next post. I HAVE to be able to test the add-on before I buy and show the function to my client. Of course I would not show him the function on the Woo playground.

        You are offering a large number of add-ons and extensions and it is sometimes hard to find the right one.
        How can I test them?

        We realized that not every add-on works like promised or fit the needs.
        Yes I know… here everything is “awesome” but I would like to test for my own before buy.

          Pedro, Woo never offered the ability to test their add-ons before their pricing structure changes took effect. I can understand the need to know how things work before you buy them, but there are forums here for that.

          You can also bill your clients for “discovery” to cover costs associated with testing and research. This is a typical practice and one that we do quite a bit.

    as well I would like to have the possibility to test add-ons before I buy them, if they fit my needs and my clients likes them.
    Otherwise I would not take the risk to test the extension in MY INSTALL of wp, if I have to buy it in advance.
    To test the extensions / add-ons in your test-pages is not interesting, as I cannot see it on my clients products in his design.

    How does one go about getting support for woocommerce extensions?

      Hi Marek,

      Please use the “Support” link in our website’s main navigation menu. Under that menu is a “Contact Support” link (amongst other resources) which will take you directly to our support desk.

      I’d advise looking through the documentation for the extension as a first port of call, as the answer to your question may reside there. 🙂

    The product support is brilliant! Love it!

    Now you’ve set up the stamps plugin, could you please adapt it for use with the eparcel system? (Australia Post). They have a csv file for import but it’s way too time-consuming to manually convert into their format.

    The “Stop WooCommerce Time” ninja at the top of this post made my day. Unfortunately I now have images of MC Hammer, parachute pants and the tune of “U Can’t Touch This” dominating my mind.

    So what is happening with WooCommerce extensions that have disappeared? Commission King and Product Importer Deluxe being two examples? Will they be updated in line with new versions of WordPress & WooCommerce or are they now abandoned?

    That raises an interesting question: what is the official policy regarding support for extensions developed by third parties? Does Woo require a minimum support term for extension updates from developers?

      I’d like to put in my shout for Commission King release soon. I really need a stable release of this extension as its key to my entire business with WooCommerce. Any ideas on a release date?
