Woo(t)

We got there eventually. I’ve been assisting friends with developing their business website since they commenced early last year, and late last year was our first foray into eCommerce using WooCommerce. Things are starting to kick off there, and they’re starting now to make some passive income, which is great. We’re just adding another category which should hopefully see things grow further this week.

One thing I have certainly learned with our use of WooCommerce is that it is a highly commercial entity, blink and you are charged, and it’s most likely an annual subscription fee; ouch! We just added another subscription tonight that was essential; WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor Pro, we simply couldn’t continue with their free version as we’d finally come to that point where we were needing to have one of the checkout form fields show for one group, but not appearing for another, something the free edition just didn’t offer. I guess you can’t balk at US$39 though, it’s not a whole lot of money when you look at what you’re getting in the end.

Advanced Notifications let’s us down

When we launched recently a two products we purchased the Advanced Notifications plugin to allow us to multi-notify when a purchase had occurred. This plugin was great as we could customise the information that was sent based upon categories, e.g. to us send everything and to the originating supplier provide only the client’s details but nothing else.

With our latest product launching this coming week we again want to multi-notify, however we wanted to customise the notification going to the customer, something Advanced Notifications doesn’t support, customers aren’t a supported notification group as you must have the sender’s email address, you can’t use a code (e.g. {customer_email}). Another plugin required? Extended Advanced Notifications perhaps LOL.
