Woocomerce is the leading E-commerce platform in the world. Developed by Automattic, the global remote company behind WordPress. The previous major release was their version 3, which came out in 2017. In between there has been a lot of sub versions, up to the latest 3.93, until today. So let’s take a look at what’s new in Woocommerce 4.0
What’s New in Woocommerce 4.0 – Features
We will be looking at different aspects of the new release
Woocommerce Admin was released to the public in February 2019 as a 0.8.0 version, which we could see as a public Beta version. That way, end users could start giving their opinion and points of view on the application until the release. We tried the Woocommerce admin on a few of our clients websites, and at the beginning, it got us more headaches than actual results.
However, this is normal, it’s a first version, it is supposed to not function right away. With the versions improving throughout the past year, we started to find stability and results on the application. Therefore, over the past few months, we have been installing Woocommerce Admin on all our Woocommerce Installs. It provides you with advanced analytics and helps you look at the progression of your store sales and revenue generation.
What it also does is to provide you with a workflow when it comes to order management, so you know where you stand with your order statuses, and notifications.
Woocommerce Action Scheduler
If you are not a developer, I’m pretty sure you never have heard of it before. What it is, it’s the system that triggers actions when someone purchases something on your store. For example, with the new Subscriptions Plugins, it will assist you with membership sales. And send accurate messages when you are in a Monthly Recurring Revenue business plan.
