    Okay, I was just about ready to build my own store using another method, but the order management and inventory management systems that are built into woocommerce are too appealing to pass up.


    I really need to build a one page form checkout that will have the products listed as radio items w/ thumbnails and some other brief info. The form also needs to include some custom fields and options including the required fields for shipping. The rest of the checkout will be handled by Paypal.


    The biggest thing is having each radio option correspond to a product in the database and passing all form data to Paypal. If anyone could point me in the right direction as to where to start so that what I design jives with future woocommerce updates it would be greatly appreciated.

    I actually considered using that combination before using the standalone gravity plugin and not the WC extension. Do you happen to know how the paypal IPN functions with woocommerce? For instance, if I build a complete order form using the gravity paypal addon, would the IPN hooks come back to woocommerce with all the order information and change to inventory; given the products in the gravity based checkout correspond to woocommerce products in the database?

    Wow nice find I didn't know about that site. It looks like you don't get a license, but just the most up to date copy of the extension. But it's totally worth the $10 IMO. Depending if I need anything else I may sub for a month to get access to everything.

    I've never used woocommerce before so I just hope between the custom product page and this extension I'll be able to design my ideal storefront.

    The only thing that's bugging me is that I want to design a single all in one radio product form and checkout, which may be a pain to setup since I won't be utilizing the cart system.

    Does anyone know if this can be done without altering any core files? I'd like to be able to update everything without problems down the line.

    they are taking advantage of the GPL (which is fine I guess). They are not buying product packages with 25 licenses and sell them individually. And another thing with them is that they do not respond to any emails. If you need an update don't count on that. :) there are better premium membership clubs out there

    Lol I can't complain about woogang. I'm in the process of building a new woocommerce store and recently resubbed to download all of their latest plugins. Over 200 plugins worth around $10k retail for $15 is a pretty good deal IMO. I generally rewrite and edit these plugins for my projects anyways so no support isn't a big deal for me.
