WooCommerce continues to grow day by day, and as it does we need to react in order to keep up with the ever challenging support demand. Along with our impending switch to zendesk, to improve our WooCommerce support further we’re delighted to announce that we’ve recruited two talented developers who will be focusing on WooCommerce as part of our support team. Everyone please give a warm welcome to Daniel Espinoza (who you may have already met in UserVoice) and Gerhard Potgieter who starts officially on December 1st.
Both developers are seasoned WooCommerce extension developers and their general eCommerce experience will be fantastic assets to the WooCommerce arm of our support team.
But the excitement doesn’t end there…

Today we launch 8 new extensions including several payment gateways (two of which have been built by Daniel), Mad Mimi & Twilio integration, a custom tab manager and a kick-ass brands module.
