Changing WooCommerce Attribute Visibility Defaults

Here’s a quick tip from a question we were asked by Nick: Any time I add attributes to my products, I want to display them on the product page and use them for variations. Is there a way to default this checkbox to ‘checked’ instead of ‘unchecked’? For reference, when you add attributes to a product, you’re given the option to show them on the product page (which adds them to the “Additional Information” product…

WooCommerce First Data: Refund Support Added

We’ve been hard at work on some new plugins, but we’ve also been working on some improvements for our plugins behind the scenes.

8 Lessons Learned by building the WooCommerce iPhone App

One of our major goals for the first half of this year was to release the official WooCommerce iPhone app. While we released the app a bit behind schedule (in July), we were still really excited to get our first iOS app out the door and to create a mobile store management tool that we’d want to use ourselves. However, the process of building the app wasn’t entirely smooth sailing, so we figured we’d share…

Using WooCommerce URL coupons with One Page Checkout

We have a quick question today from Gabi: Hi. I’ve tried using your Remove sorting options plugin to remove my dropdown, but removing all options leaves the dropdown there.

Change WooCommerce Product Retailers Buttons

One of my favorite features of WooCommerce Product Retailers is that you can display retailer purchasing options with buttons on your product pages. This lets you list a product in your own store (or not if you don’t want to sell it yourself), and use your referral links elsewhere to generate revenue. Having buttons on your product page lets customers see all purchasing options at a glance and select where they’d like to buy from….

WooCommerce iOS version 1.1.2

Hey there! We’d recently updated the WooCommerce iOS app to version 1.1.1, which fixed an irritating bug with phone number formatting. However, we’d noted that we had another patch coming in that post: We’ve also got a version 1.1.2 patch about to be submitted (remember, it takes about a week for Apple to review) that has a workaround for server incompatibilities with some hosts. If you’ve updated your API keys, but you can’t update order…
