By Hilton Moore – Kri8it Senior Developer

I’m a senior developer at kri8it. We’re a digital agency that has long standing relationships with our clients based on great work and we are big admirers of building child themes off of Canvas.

We have used Canvas for a number of high profile clients and the way the framework is written, with all the hooks and extra features, really makes it a great base platform on which to build a system that can handle any scope, functionality and scale.

WooCommerce Subscriptions 1.2

November 19, 2012 - 18 Comments

Take recurring payments with WooCommerce and this powerful extension.
A new version of WooCommerce Subscriptions was released last week, version 1.2.

With it came a bunch of great new features to put more power in the hands of store managers wanting to sell subscription products. We hope this post will help store managers get the most out of these new features.

The Low-down

If you don’t already know, WooCommerce Subscriptions is the recurring payments extension for WooCommerce.

A case study by Ben Collier, on developing a site for some close friends wanting to sell reusable coffee cups… with a difference.

After a long weekend of data imports, and beta testing we can finally present to you the brand new WooThemes.

Now powered by WooCommerce

We’ve completely moved away from our notorious, custom built management system “WooMember” to our own freely available WordPress plugin – WooCommerce.

WooMember was built prior to WooCommerce and geared towards dealing with single product checkout. Since the arrival of WooCommerce to our product offering it has become evident that we need to cater for multiple product checkout. Instead of investing further time into our dated infrastructure, we made the decision it was time to put WooCommerce to the ultimate test.
