WooCommerce

A Customizable WordPress eCommerce Platform

WooCommerce is a very powerful and popular e-commerce tool and has its own resource guide and support area. We use WooCommerce for a variety of reasons but most of all for the flexibility it offers. You can sell products of your own or affiliate, sell tickets, manage inventory, offer coupons, sell memberships, track orders, record sales, manage users and so much more.

Managing Orders (Payments)

WooCommerce is your online shopping cart. All website purchases give users the option to pay by credit card or cheque/cash. All credit card purchases are processed online via Beanstream (which is connected to your internal POS). All online orders with cheque/cash payments need to be manually processed in WooCommerce.

Custom Checkout Templates - Memberships & Conference

Membership and Conference product purchases lead to a unique checkout template. The checkout process includes registration instructions for each and lead users to a unique registration form.

Learn more about the Membership setup here.

Conference Registration Products

We have already created multiple products that can be used in the conference registration process. Use products with the id’s 794-803.

These products must never be deleted or replaced. Their unique product ID connects them to a custom page template after the user completes their payment. This custom template introduces and links to the registration form.

Both product ‘publish’ dates and ‘sale’ dates need to be rescheduled every year. You can also edit the contents of each product (image, text, price …) as needed.
