I built a sweet integration for WooCommerce into an MD client project, and I am working now to bundle it smoothly into the next Marketers Delight update. As a passing thought, how many of you use WooCommerce and would think a style integration with some bonus features would benefit you?

Here's an early screenshot of the settings screen for the WooCommerce integration coming into MD4.9.4. Not looking to go overboard as I am only an intermediate with WooCommerce, but this should give us just enough styling for a basic store and a couple of "cherry on top" kind of features.

I believe @Maikel is the Woo expert around here, so maybe he has some thoughts. :D

Woo expert... Oh boy, I can't handle the pressure ;-)

I really like the features!
Cart icon and minimal checkout fields are things i need to implement on multiple websites. This will make it a lot easier. :-)

With MD you can also build good salespages, but i don't like the default WooCommerce checkoutpage. That's the reason i'm using different checkout pages for each digital product (see uploaded file). Maybe this would benefit more MD customers if you could integrate this functionality into MD. :-)

Since you can already connect MD to an email service provider, it would be great if you can collect email 
addresses when someone buys a product from your store. To segment the customers, sending tags to the email service provider with the product name would be helpfull as well.

Glad to hear these features look useful!

I like your suggestions here - which plugin do you use to make multiple checkout pages? The current drawback of the "Minimal" settings it that they will be applied to all checkout pages rather than being able to enable it on a page by page basis.

I have a tagging feature coming in the revamped version of MD Optins I am working on, and is it currently possible to add that email signup checkbox to WooCommerce?

Great looking checkout page by the way - does that use MD Custom sidebars?

I'm using the WooCommerce Quick Checkout (paid) plugin to make multiple checkout pages. Not really a big drawback i think, but i get your point. For the few websites that sell digital and physical products, it would be awesome to select what they want for each product.

It's not possible to add a email signup checkbox out of the box. I'm using a plugin to do this (ES Woocommerce ActiveCampaign), but i'm not using the checkbox feature they have, I just add new customers to my mailinglist automatically after the order is completed. I need to do it this way because i need to contact them about the course. :ph34r:

Yes, i'm using MD Custom sidebars on the checkout page as well.

Definitely, I think I will keep it global for now, and then when the inevitable day comes for this feature request it will be easy to bake in. :)

That's similar to how I have to approve forum accounts here, unfortunately there isn't a bridge between my eCommerce and this forum software. If that plugin exists though, why not enable it to save you the effort of manually adding them?

I didn't mean it like that. Everything is automated, no manually stuff for me.
I meant that i don't use the checkbox, even if it is maybe required by some laws nowdays (not sure for paying customers though), because i need them on my mailinglijst to sent them automated mails for the course. So i just didn't want the checkbox, because then it's optional to subscribe.

To bad there isn't any bridge yet for EDD/WP and Invision. I used to sync WP contacts with IPBWI for WordPress v4, but that plugin looks outdated now.

Just an update - MD4.9.4 is finally nearing completion and the last little details are being put in place to make this WooCommerce integration GREAT!

Here are some screenshots and other teasers I have posted on Twitter and the MD Stream you might like:

Guys,

I am at the beginner stage where I will soon get my first info product ready to be sold. I was thinking to integrate Paypal and/or Stripe as my payment tool, but OI see that MD now integrates with Woo commerce.

What I need  at the stage I am at (no money input, no cashflow) is a FREE payment method. Can I use Woo commerce for free? What does it provide exactly? 

I just need to give my web visitors a way to pay for the info products (PDF and videos) they will buy at my site. Any recommendation? 
Not sure what is the best free Stripe plugin (I see there are many for Wordpress). Not sure either how  I can create an upsell offer using Paypal and Stripe.

Yes, WooCommerce is a free solution and many MD users run it on their website (I am kind of wishing I used it on the MD site!).

When looking for a Stripe plugin, make sure it is integrated into WooCommerce. They have an official Stripe plugin they offer for free which you can find on their website as an addon.
