Development and support of Facebook for WooCommerce is moving to Automattic

Let’s be honest, if your brand doesn’t have a Facebook page, you may as well not exist. Facebook connects you with a global audience of over 2.7 billion people, but selling on your store’s page hasn’t always been easy. That’s why we were so excited to take on support and development of the Facebook for WooCommerce plugin earlier this year. Our mission at SkyVerge is to help small businesses and everyday entrepreneurs succeed with eCommerce,…

Show pre-expiration messages for members on your site

This post is inspired by a neat question we got from a Memberships user recently: How can I share messages on-site when a membership is about to expire? Typically our member content blocks or member shortcodes can be used with a “delay” attribute to achieve this, as you could show content 355 days after a year-long membership starts. However, if you manually (or programmatically) change membership end dates, you may not have all expiration dates…

While you can completely change the way your storefront looks using a new theme to represent your brand, the order emails in WooCommerce are generic and difficult to customize. For a newcomer to WooCommerce, this is often jarring: how can I adjust my WooCommerce receipt email to add new information or a thank…

A new Authorize.Net experience

The Authorize.Net integrations for WooCommerce were among some of the earliest plugins we built at SkyVerge. At that time, Authorize.Net had several different APIs that allowed you to do different things: the AIM API handled directly processing payments, the CIM API handled securely tokenizing saved methods, the DPM API handled embedded payment forms, and the SIM API handled off-site transactions. As a result of all of this separation, there were 4 different extensions to do…
