Mobile App Refresh Campaign [Banner] 2024

WooCommerce has a lot of downloads

Written by Mark Forrester on January 28, 2013 Blog.

That’s a lot of people using WooCommerce! When humanizing a statistical figure of 500,000 we realise how massive our eCommerce plugin has grown in 16 months. It’s transformed our business, and according to all your feedback enabled businesses all around the world.

With that said we are celebrating this milestone in true Woo fashion.

50% off all WooCommerce extensions for 24 hours only

That’s right, if you act quick, you can make a significant saving on any WooCommerce extension to further enhance your WordPress powered shopfront. We’ve created the coupon code “WC500K” that will issue the discount on checkout. Don’t forget to enter it and don’t waste time. Go! Go! Go!

View the promo View our extensions

Update: This promotion has now ended and the coupon has expired

This coupon only applies to WooCommerce extensions available on our site, not third party extensions that link out from our catalog to other sites.

We love hearing from our community about your experience with our products and have created a special page dedicated to our 500,000 downloads accolade. Please leave a comment on that page with how WooCommerce has enabled an income stream of yours and/or enabled a business you thought otherwise impossible.

We’ll be issuing spot prizes to those who participate.

A special mention and congratulatory shout out to our small product team behind WooCommerce – Mike Jolley, Jay Koster and Coen Jacobs, along with our fantastic support team working at ground level making customers happy!

    Great stuff, counting the days for the v2!

    A remark: i find myself checking which extensions are new. It would be great if you guys could show the ‘date added’ (which is visible on the extension detail page) on the categorie/list view.

    To bad, I spent 100$ on extension yesterday! I knew that I had to wait a little bit more…

    Congratulations anyway.

      Sorry about that there, hopefully not running into that still. Just let us know if otherwise!

      That’s awesome to hear, Rose!

      We’d love to hear about your experience with selling between both Etsy and WooCommerce. Keep us posted please! 🙂

        It would have been more helpful to know this beforehand….. start/end date/time

        • Ryan Ray
          January 30, 2013 at 9:30 pm #

          We’ll be sure to be much clearer on that the next time it’s needed. We will most always base these off of UTC time, just as an FYI. 🙂

    Hi I am going to buy more than 1 extension right now.
    But why after I entered my credit card information your system decline the transaction?
    Any other option for payment method? PAYPAL?

      Definition is the best fit styling wise.

          I think Canvas will be getting some work to integrate better with Sensei, and we will be publishing docs on integrating it into any theme too!

    Thanks for the 24-hour offer; it would be helpful if there was a start date and time for this ….. I just wanted to take advantage of this offer but noticed the promo code no longer works ….. ;(

    I wanted to buy 5 extensions today and found out that I was 3 days late for the big bonus.
    Do you have a consolation prize for the unfortunate people 😉

    Loving WooThemes – had a bunch of extensions i was going to discuss with my business partner but the discount ran out, didn’t know it was only for 24 hours. Any discounts coming soon?

    Here’s one more vote for another 24 hours. I’ve got three or four extensions I’d like to test out, but it is tough to do at full price. C’mon guys! Tomorrow is National Girl Scout Cookie Day. Let’s have a sale!

    Aww! Can’t believe I missed this great offer! Even more ironic since I just defected from Jigoshop 😉 Currently got $235 sat in the cart and trying to figure out which extensions I really really need and which can wait!
