WooCommerce: Emails are not sending

W

One of the more frequent issues that we hear about day to day is that WooCommerce is not sending emails for new orders (or any emails at all). There are several reasons that this may be happening. The most common reason is that the status of order is such that an email is not going to be sent. Some times the email may not even be enabled, or the server is not sending the emails. While we do have...

WooCommerce Services and the Nexus: Tax calculations are not shown

W

In WooCommerce you can use WooCommerce Services to make tax calculations easier. This uses the TaxJar API to do that for you. Sometimes though, you will have everything configured correctly, but taxes still show as $0 or not at all on the front end of your site. This is often because there is no Nexus available. To confirm this, make sure you have Automated Taxes enabled. Now let’s check...

Ireland Day 4

I

Day 4 was mostly spent seeing Ireland! We all piled into a tour bus and traveled all over. We saw two different counties and even passed through the town where “P.S. I love You” was filmed, which is our favorite movie! We went to Kilkenny and Glendalough. Glendalough Monastic City was pretty amazing and we hiked a rather difficult hike to the top of a hill for a killer view. We saw so...

Ireland Day 3

I

Day 3 started at 4:00 AM. I know, right? I could not sleep much at all. Being 8 hours ahead is just not fun. Knowing I had to be up at 5:00 and navigate my way to CrossFit Navitas by 5:30 made me a little anxious, but it was easy. Sunrise is 6:53 AM, and so it was dark, but walking 22 minutes to Camden was very enjoyable and felt safe, even though it was dark. The perfect amount of cold, one...

WooCommerce Subscriptions Can I Remove Product?

W

If I remove a product or a product variation from my store, will that effect past Subscriptions based on the product I removed? I get this question a lot, and it makes sense. If you run out of stock, you don’t want to sell it anymore. Or what if you just want to discontinue a product, but still plan to sell it to folks who already have a Subscription? The answer is yes, removing the product...

WooCommerce Multiply all costs by person count

W
Alien Person Type

Today I had a really great question about the Multiply all costs by person count option in WooCommerce Bookings. This can be a pretty confusing option. So no worries. If you got confused by this one, you are not alone. So you check the check box next to Multiply all costs by person count thinking “great, now the price will be multiplied per person”. In our example the Alien person...
