Next Evolution of the WooCommerce iOS App

Just over a year ago, we shipped a product we’d partnered with WooCommerce to build that we thought would be a great addition to the WooCommerce platform: the WooCommerce iOS app. Our goal was to build something that would let store owners keep a pulse on how their store was doing, and that this would evolve into a tool that would let WooCommerce shop owners manage some of their store on-the-go as development progressed. We…

How to Remove WooCommerce Product Images from the Cart

This Ask SkyVerge question comes from Frank: Is it possible to remove the product thumbnails and the links to the product page on the cart page? By default, the WooCommerce cart page includes product images and links to product pages in your shop for each item in the cart.

Changing the Storefront My Account Page

Today’s Ask SkyVerge question is from Harshad: The “My Account” page used to display the login and register forms side by side, but now that I switched to Storefront and updated WooCommerce they are below each other, taking up a lot of space on the page. Can the Storefront My Account page be changed? If you use WooCommerce in a default theme, like TwentyTwelve, you’ll see that the “My Account” page layout is in two…

Overriding Templates in WooCommerce Extensions

WooCommerce has a system in place that will allow you to override core templates within your child theme. This means that you can copy a template file, edit it, and the edited version in your theme will be loaded instead of the core version of the template. We do encourage you not to do this, as most changes can be made via hooks (filters and actions) instead, and this method is far more upgrade-safe than…

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…

One Page Checkout allows you to create a streamlined, minimal checkout process, and you can use a customized page or select a template to sell your products and complete checkout without ever sending customers to another screen. You can create landing pages, product tables, pricing tables, and more. Since this plugin helps to…

How to remove WooCommerce product sorting

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. Is there a change I need to do to remove the empty sorting dropdown? If you’d like to remove some of the built-in WooCommerce sorting options, our WooCommerce Remove Product Sorting can easily do it for you. However, this isn’t the best option if you want…

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…
