Add Member Area Links to the Sidebar with WooCommerce Memberships

When a customer has at least one membership assigned or purchased via WooCommerce Memberships, the customer will be able to see the “My Memberships” table via the account dashboard. This lets your members see membership information, and if you have the member area enabled, members can get lists of their available content, products, and discounts.

WooCommerce Authorize.Net AIM Adds Accept.js Support

Payment processing is the cornerstone of any eCommerce store.

Over the past…

Cover photo credit: 401kcalculator.org, CC BY-SA 2.0 Accurately assessing, collecting, and remitting sales tax is one of the most tedious challenges that eCommerce businesses face. When you run a brick-and-mortar shop, tax collection is typically pretty straight forward: you collect the tax based on the good you’re selling for your store’s location.

WooCommerce Memberships: Import and Export Members

It’s been a busy 2-weeks at SkyVerge as we rolled out a compatibility update for all our extensions to make sure they support the new WooCommerce 2.6. This type of release usually packs no features, perhaps just minor tweaks or bugfixes at most, since we need to focus on compatibility with the newest WooCommerce version. This also helps us ensure nothing breaks in installations using an older version (we normally support the latest three versions of WooCommerce), ensuring a…
