What’s in a Name? HPOS for WooCommerce

Custom Order Tables in WooCommerce are now High Performance Order Storage (HPOS). It’s a technical kind of rebranding that’s a really good idea to express not only what custom database tables for orders are but what they do.

According to the timeline for this key feature’s development, HPOS will be feature complete and released with WooCommerce 7.1 for user testing on November 8 this year. The final stage will come in August 2023 when “HPOS becomes the default experience for stores with WooCommerce 8.0” and “data synchronization with posts/post-meta tables will be disabled.”
