Best WooCommerce Warehouse Management Systems

Best WooCommerce Warehouse Management Systems

A warehouse management system (WMS) is made up of software and processes that enable businesses to manage and control warehouse operations from the moment materials or products arrive at a warehouse to the time they are shipped out to the customer.

WooCommerce can be integrated with a WMS which eliminates manual and repetitive tasks by automating warehouse processes. This helps businesses increase productivity and deliver a seamless logistics experience to their customers.

Shopping cart abandonment happens when a prospective customer adds products to their online shopping cart, but changes their mind and leaves the website without placing an order.

The main reason why users abandon carts is that they are unsure or aren’t ready to make a purchase. They may be using their shopping cart to create a wishlist for possible later purchases or for comparing product prices.

According to a Baymard Institute report on cart abandonment, 68.9% is the average documented shopping cart abandonment rate. That means you’re missing out on over two-thirds of your potential sales revenue!

Adding Product Filters to WooCommerce

Add product filters to WooCommerce

If you’re selling products with varying features and attributes, displaying product filters is essential. They help customers drill down to find what they’re looking for quicker, which is particularly important on catalogs with a lot of items.

Not being able to filter results restricts the ability of users to browse your store the way they need and will affect conversions.

I’m going to explain how to include product filters to WooCommerce. This will first cover WooCommerce’s default filter widgets but I’ll also show you how to add more sophisticated filter controls, including color swatches, and filters which dynamically update the results set without a page refresh.

Plus, I’ll describe how to include horizontal filters on your catalog which negate the need for a separate sidebar. This can be ideal for certain kinds of stores which prefer having products front and center. As we’ve seen from Baymard’s research on the topic, a horizontal filter can outperform the traditional sidebar layout. This is a relatively new UX pattern but it’s a great choice if you only need to display a small number of filters.

A pretty common request for WooCommerce sites is the need to include additional field inputs on the single product page and output them on the front-end. I’m going to explain how to do this using the excellent Advanced Custom Fields plugin (free version).

There will be a little bit of coding involved but don’t worry, it’s all very straightforward. And there’s the added satisfaction of knowing you can now extend WooCommerce in a powerful way.

I’ll explain a number of different use-cases with examples for each. I’ll be using our Shoptimizer WooCommerce theme but the code snippets should work for any WooCommerce theme.

With the right single product gallery plugin, you can enhance the visual appearance of your online store and make your product pages look pleasant and appealing. It’s also a great way to help customers make an informed buying decision.

Here’s why:

If you sell products that need multiple images to best showcase them such as t-shirts (you want to show the front and back), shoes (different angles), and computer mice (you want to show the top view and side views), you need a good single product gallery plugin to help you display WooCommerce product galleries on the single product page in a user-friendly way. This way, you’ll be able to make your products look more attractive.
