Yesterday, WooCommerce version 3.0 was released, and today I’m pleased to announce the release of a long-awaited update for the WooCommerce module. We would have released this update sooner, but we were waiting for WooCommerce 3.0 to be released, due to compatibility concerns.
The new version of the module improves compatibility with WooCommerce 3.0 and WordPoints 2.3, and fixes a few very minor things.
Of course, it also includes some much anticipated new features:
First, the module now includes an event that can be used to award points when an order is completed. This means that you could now use the module to run a rewards program for your store, where your users receive so many rewards points for each purchase that they make. By default you can only award a flat amount for every order, but you can also be more sophisticated by using the new Dynamic Points module as well. That would allow you to award users points matching 5% of the order total, for example.
You can also award points when a new product is added to your store, and when a review is left on a product.
In addition, we’ve also made the points to money conversion rate setting for the points gateway more flexible, so that it is now possible to input whatever conversion rate you would like, instead of being limited to a predefined set of selections.
You can check out the module’s page for a full description of its features. We’re looking forward to adding even more features in the future, so let us know in the comments if there is anything that you would like to see that is still missing. This helps us to gauge what to work on next!
