Prices by Country for WooCommerce – Status update

Two months ago today, we announced that we started working on a Prices by Country plugin for WooCommerce (yes, the name changed slightly, from “pricing” to “prices”). We had made a good progress, but we were delayed by the release of other products, such as the First Data/Authipay gateway, the Mijireh multi-currency gateway and the PayPal multi-account gateway. The early release of WooCommerce 2.2 also gave us some work to do, as we had to test all our products, to ensure compatibility with the latest version of the shopping cart.

We have now resumed working on the Prices by Country plugin, and we are happy to inform you that we already reached the first beta stage.

What’s in current beta of Prices by Country?

In its current version, the Prices by Country supports simple products and it’s fully integrated with our Currency Switcher. By using both plugins, it’s possible to set a product price in multiple currencies, and enter a separate set of prices for different country groups. What’s even better is that you can leave some prices empty for a country group, if you wish, and they will be automatically populated using the base prices. If you use multiple currencies, conversion will also be automatic. Full integration, full flexibility!

Preview screenshots

We modified the Administration interface since last update, and implemented a new, cleaner layout. You can see a few screenshots below.

What’s next?

Our next milestone will be adding support for variable products. Due to their flexibility, they require a different approach, as well as a different interface. We are currently experimenting different solutions to see which one would be the most efficient and user friendly. Of course, the Prices by Country plugin will fully support multi-currency prices for variations, too!

When is the plugin due to be released?

We plan to hit the second beta stage by the end of next week (ending on the 24/10/2014), but, with a bit of luck, we could be able to reach it ahead of schedule. We cannot make an official commitment at this stage, as we are still in the middle of development.

Can I get early access to the product?

If you wish to get early access to the Prices by Country plugin, please contact us. We will take note of your interest and offer you a substantial discount on the product when the first stable version will become available.

Thanks for reading, see you soon with more great news!

Product Add-ons Integration for Currency Switcher updated to version 1.1.0.141010

Product Add-ons Integration add-on for Currency Switcher for WooCommerce has been updated to version 1.1.0.141010. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Added fix to work around a bug in the Product Add-ons plugin. The original Product Add-ons plugin introduced a small bug in version 2.6.3, which causes miscalculation of add-ons prices when their price is set to zero in product configuration. This update handles the condition, so that add-ons with a price of zero will keep that value.
  • Refactored plugin to use the Aelia Foundation Classes library. The AFC library is the foundation of most of our products, and it allows to keep our plugins efficient, lightweight and easy to maintain. We re-designed the Product Add-ons plugin so that it can leverage our powerful library.

How to get latest version

You can download the plugin from the product page, free of charge. Support can be purchased separately.

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce updated to version 3.5.4.141002

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce – What’s new

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce has been updated to version 3.5.4.141002. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Added check to prevent mathematical conversion of empty product prices. If you leave base product price empty, prices in other currencies will no longer be calculated as “zero”, but will simply be left empty as well.
  • Fixed minor bug in rendering of “buttons” widget. The bug caused the currency code to be used as the buttons’ labels, ignoring filters that might have modified the labels.
  • Fixed bug in handling of minimum order amount for free shipping. The bug caused the minimum amount to be converted using exchange rates even when it was declared in explicitly in a currency using the Shipping Pricing plugin.
  • Added new arguments to wc_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget_currency_options hook, toallowtodetermine whichwidgetis being rendered. The arguments passed to the filter are now the following:
    • Currencies options. An array of currency code -> label pairs.
    • Widget type. A string indicating the type of widget being rendered (buttons or dropdown).
    • Widget title.
    • Widget template name. The name of the file being used as a template.
  • Updated GeoIP database.
