Here’s everything you should know about the WooCommerce Agency Partner Program with their program manager, Mary Voelker. Key takeaways: The WooExpert program started in 2015, and participants had to be invited and pay for a membership in it. Agency partners in the WooExpert program (currently around 75) were handpicked until earlier this year. Now the…
In 2019-20, only four plugins entered the space and broke into the upper tiers. These were Site Kit for Google, Facebook for WooCommerce, Creative Mail for WordPress and WooCommerce, and Google Ads and Marketing by Kliken. Has the WordPress.org repository become a closed shop, a tapped-out ecosystem where the winners have taken all? Here are some suggestions about how to break in or changes that could be proposed to open and diversify the repository. Until that happens, do growth charts matter?
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…
How to make a user experience that doesn’t suck has always remained a kind of trade secret among those who make it their trade. That’s understandable, but it’s Drupal behavior in a WordPress world.
WOOF is a new directory for WooCommerce extensions and WordPress plugins with a Woo tie-in.
So they say. Specifically, David Mainayar said in Woo Weekly #399 that it’s the fastest he’s seen, and I imagine he’s seen a lot.
This is a great explainer from Cozmos Labs for setting up WooCommerce as a private/walled garden store. Why do that? I’ll tell you why! It should be a 1-click install blueprint too.
Apparently unaffected by downward trends elsewhere, GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY) posted some bullish numbers for their second quarter with revenue up 9% year-over-year, and net Income up 93% year-over-year.

Here’s a detailed post from Bradley Taylor for GoDaddy‘s WooCommerce Wednesdays — all about multichannel selling. I was curious to see why that’s being billed as the future of e-commerce. I’ve read more about “omnichannel” as the buzzword of the future. Neither is something that WooCommerce does well without extensive customization. The idea behind omnichannel…

Congrats to Rodolfo Melogli of Business Bloomer and David Mainayar at PeachPay for reaching issue #400 of WooWeekly back in July. To celebrate this milestone, Rodolfo asked a lot of people (including me) to explain what one thing they’d change in WooCommerce if they could change just one thing. Most of the responses were not…
This week WooCommerce 6.7 was released along with WooCommerce Blocks 7.8.3. Our good friend Rodolfo Melogli polled the Woo community for his 400th issue of WooWeekly: If you could change one thing in WooCommerce, what would it be?” Multidots shares a fascinating case study they have on both migration and multisite for RHRSwag.com. And Marius Vetrici is the WooDev profile of the week. He’s been writing code since 1994 and has 10+ programming languages under his belt and 20+ years of experience. Despite (or because of?) that, he’s interested in low-code tools and refuses to buy shoes online. You’ve just got to try them on to get the perfect fit and feel of the shoe on the foot.
