Add-ons for WooCommerce Memberships are here!

WooCommerce Memberships has been one of our flagship products at SkyVerge for a couple years, and today we’re very excited for the next evolution of the Memberships ecosystem. When we originally built Memberships, our main goals were to provide a robust integration with Subscriptions for content protection, while also ensuring that sites could offer store perks to certain groups of customers (such as discounts or exclusive products). Over time, we’ve seen Memberships grow from a…

Manual payments

Processing WooCommerce payments for a customer

Our support team often gets asked a variation of this question: How do I process an order on behalf of a customer? I took an order for a customer over the phone, can I run a transaction for it in WooCommerce? I just accepted an order for a product with a custom price, and I’d like to charge the customer manually. Can I do it? I’m going to be charging for expedited shipping, so I…

Ask SkyVerge

Adding Columns to the WooCommerce My Orders List

Time to start with our first Ask SkyVerge question of 2018 πŸ™‚ This question is from Houdayer: Is there a way to add shipping information in the table at MyAccount > Orders? Sure thing! We’re looking at the “Orders” menu in the my account page currently, which shows order number, date, status, total, and actions by default: The woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_columns filter lets us add or adjust the columns included in this list, so we can add…

New year

It was a big year for SkyVerge

This year was one of the busiest ever for the SkyVerge crew. Yeah, we know, that’s what startups say about every year. But we really mean it! This year we grew our team, launched new products, made existing products better, and most importantly, helped over 50,000 shops using WooCommerce, Shopify, and Easy Digital Downloads to make more money and provide better experiences for their customers. Here’s what went down in 2017…

Developing a Customer Service Tone Guide

This year, I’d attended Post Status Publish and WooConf, learning a ridiculous amount from other WordPress professionals at each. At both conferences, I’d been asked about team and support management by a few people. At Publish in particular, I’d delivered a sort of meta talk on building and selling eCommerce software with Brent Shepherd from Prospress. We wanted to cover several facets of building products, from strategy and hiring to product planning. We had some…

WooConf 2017

We’re a few weeks past WooConf, but better late than never I suppose πŸ™‚ I wanted to share some of the things our team was up to recently at WooConf, along with the planning that went into this as our first major sponsorship for an event. Since giving back is a big focus for us, most sponsorships we’ve done thus far have been small in scale, mostly to support a local event or WordCamp. For…

Version 1.8 was too an important release: it had to account for WooCommerce 3.0 compatibility, an important milestone for the world’s largest eCommerce platform. For this reason, though,…
