Mix and Match Products Supported

Another great WooCommerce extension now supports CoCart. It’s called Mix and Match Products and it’s also developed by Kathy Darling. I was happy to help with it’s development and guide Kathy adding support for the REST API.

If your selling cases of wine, dozen donuts, fruit baskets or even a six-pack of T-shirts. Mix and Match is ideal for offering similar products in bulk containers. Perfect for encouraging customers to buy in bulk without forcing them to buy items that don’t interest them.

Now you can support these bulk product types in your headless store.

View the CoCart documentation to see how you can add a Mix and Match Product to the cart from your customers selection.

I’ve developed a WooCommerce extension

That’s great. Always looking to support more WooCommerce extensions. If your extension provides a new product type or extends with new product features that requires support in CoCart, I look forward to helping you out.

A boilerplate is available to give you a head start.

Name Your Price Supported

With the improved support for handling products in CoCart, it is easier for developers to add support in their WooCommerce extensions that provide extra product data or options for customers.

With that I am happy to announce that a popular WooCommerce extension called Name Your Price developed by Kathy Darling has become the first official extension to integrate support for CoCart within their plugin as of v3.1.0

This is a great first step in providing CoCart developers the same frontend options via the REST API and it works as advertised.

All that was required was some tweaking to the method used for handling error responses and validating the customers requested price.

I won’t say it was an easy process but one I was able to help develop with the plugin creator.

Documentation provides details on how to accept customers requested price.

I have created a page that lists supported WooCommerce extensions.

More extensions are being evaluated and are in development to add support. They will either be in future updates of CoCart Pro or provided within the extensions themselves.

If you have a WooCommerce extension that provides new product features that requires support in CoCart, I look forward to helping you out.

A boilerplate is available to give you a head start.

I look forward to sharing more extensions supporting CoCart in the future.

Lifetime is back for a limited time

The offer ends 30th April but may extend depending on the status of the global lockdown so get it while you can.

I have also added a founder edition where you can get CoCart Pro and show your support for a low fee each week. This is a contract subscription for a year minimum so you can’t cancel the subscription until at least a year is up.

More details on this tier is linked below.

Subscription extension for those helping with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic

If your business or organisation is selling online during the COVID-19 crisis, or you’re actively helping with the pandemic – e.g. distributing food or medical supplies – then I’m offering an extension on your subscription.

Now more than ever as we are isolated in our homes, ordering online to have essentials delivered to our homes is increasing.

Many businesses still do not yet have a fast mobile app or responsive version of their stores so using CoCart to develop one has become increasingly a more viable option to make that happen.

Which is why I am offering additional 2 months on all subscriptions for those who are helping. If your business needs to get online quickly in order to provide essential items or services to help with Coronavirus, please get in touch below.

To help me decide whether to approve your request, please provide information about how your website is important to help with the coronavirus crisis – for example, are you selling essential items such as food or medical supplies?

All subscription extensions are valid before 30th June 2020. If the coronavirus crisis is still ongoing at that point, please get in touch again and I will extend your subscription again.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about site licence activations?

If you use CoCart for more than one store please purchase the appropriate licence tier.

Can I have access to add-ons that are only available to “Freelancer” or “Agency” tier customers?

If you want to use the add-ons but purchased the “Personal” tier, please mention it when you make your request and I will provide access.


If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask me.

regards,

Sébastien.
