Six ways to master your multilingual WooCommerce store

What makes an international WooCommerce store stand out? Here's how going multilingual can help.

Six ways to master your multilingual WooCommerce store

Business | blog.weglot.com | 2 days ago

The WordPress plugin industry is booming (we would know—we’re right in the thick of it!). The multiplicity of plugins available for pretty much every website functionality you can think of means that there’s always a degree of healthy competition: every plugin developer has a reason to keep updating and improving their product. Ecommerce is perhaps the exception to this general rule of plugin multiplicity: One particular plugin dominates the scene: WooCommerce is king.
WooCommerce actually powers 8% of the internet’s ecommerce, including 21% of the top 1 million most-visited ecommerce sites on the web—and over 6% of the top 1 million sites overall.
There are many reasons why WooCommerce is the go-to ecommerce plugin for so many WordPress users (who are themselves numerous—over 34% of the entire Internet is WordPress-based), but its popularity mostly comes down to its comprehensiveness. You can start with a content-exclusive site—like a blog or a photo gallery—and turn it into a fully functional online store with no plugin other than WooCommerce. It’s a one-shot installation that allows you to:
create product pages,

How to Have a $100k+ WordPress Product Launch

Here’s a deep-dive into the hugely successful strategy behind WP FeedBack’s $100k+ plugin launch!

How to Have a $100k+ WordPress Product Launch

Community | freemius.com | 10 days ago

Have you ever heard of a WordPress plugin (or theme) that made over $100,000 in its first 30 days after launch? After spending hours Googling for successful plugins in the WordPress space that we could learn from, I couldn’t find any. As a big believer in transparency and knowledge sharing, I promised myself that if we met our goal of making $100k+ during our launch, I would share everything that we learned so other plugin and theme developers would be able to replicate the “recipe” we used to bootstrap our business.
Spoiler alert – we ended up making over $100,000 during the launch

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) for WordPress Plugin and Theme Developers

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has dominated eCommerce news recently, and we've been researching how the new regulations may affect plugin and theme shops.

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) for WordPress Plugin and Theme Developers

Community | freemius.com | 3 days ago

For many plugin and theme shops, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has been a hot topic in recent months. So what exactly is all the noise about and why is it relevant to WordPress product developers?! Let’s start with a bit of background.
What is Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)?
SCA rose out of the European Union’s (EU) goal to secure online payments, which is a pretty good goal for everyone, right? We all want to have secure online payments that protect the legitimacy of purchases in eCommerce.
In order to achieve the goal of securing online payments and minimizing fraud, the EU has released two “Payment Services Directives” – PSD1 and PSD2 – and no, these aren’t new photoshop formats. PSD2 initially gave businesses in EU countries until Sept 14, 2019 to implement secure solutions for online payments that meet SCA requirements.
These requirements were not well received by many groups, especially major credit card companies like Visa and other payment institutions in Europe, who jointly signed a statement explaining the major challenges in the transition to securing payments with 2 factor authentication (2FA – required for many

Twenty Twenty: An Introduction to the New Default WordPress Theme

Twenty Twenty isn’t built from the ground up; it’s designed upon an existing theme from the WordPress community instead. Let's take a look!

Twenty Twenty: An Introduction to the New Default WordPress Theme

Community | kinsta.com | 4 days ago

Twenty Twenty is the new default WordPress theme coming with the latest release of WordPress 5.3. Like its predecessor Twenty Nineteen, Twenty Twenty has been designed with a special focus on Gutenberg. There’s a big difference between the two, though: Twenty Twenty isn’t built from the ground up; it’s designed upon an existing theme from the WordPress community instead. Since we love everything about WordPress, we took a closer look at the new Twenty Twenty theme, peeking into functions files, the stylesheet, and the templates.
Even if Twenty Twenty is far from being somewhat stable — at the time of this writing — with many issues still unfixed, today we’ll share with you our very first thoughts about the new default WordPress theme.
Let’s dive into Twenty Twenty WordPress theme!
Quick Intro to the Twenty Twenty Theme
Twenty Twenty has been built upon Chaplin, a free WordPress theme by Anders Norén who is also Default Theme Design Lead of WordPress 5.3.
Chaplin is available for download in the WordPress.org repository and, according to Anders, it has been built with the Block Editor in mind:

Running a successful WordPress blog may seem like an easy task, but the truth is; it is not. There is a long list of WordPress tips and best practices that must be adhered to if a blogger is to realize such success. For experienced bloggers who have grown with WordPress over the years, it may be easier to start a new blog. But for the beginner bloggers who this article aims to address, these ten WordPress tips will go a long way in easing their journey to successful blogging.
WordPress is the world’s leading Content Management System (CMS) powering over 35% of the websites worldwide.

Creating, Extending, and Upgrading Custom ACF Fields That Use Select2

Senior Backend Engineer, Justin Foell, has published a blog post about creating, extending, and upgrading Custom ACF Fields that use Select2.

Creating, Extending, and Upgrading Custom ACF Fields That Use Select2

Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) has been around for quite a while now, and it’s super popular. We’re on version 5.x now, and the earliest dated reference documentation I could find was for ACF 2.0 in 2011. There have been some bumps along the way. One of the more recent issues was compatibility of the Select2 JavaScript library versions. It was mostly because two other popular plugins, Yoast’s WordPress SEO and WooCommerce, also use Select2. What is Select2? It’s the kick-ass library that lets you transform boring dropdowns to amazing searchable and formattable ones:
So what’s the big deal with ACF? Well, Select2 has gone through some major revisions as well, most notably the latest Select2 Version 4, which is not backwards compatible with Select2 version 3.x. So, if ACF brings in Version 4 and WooCommerce brings in Version 3, we’ve got problems.
Thankfully, ACF came up with an elegant way to deal with these incompatibilities by checking to see if another plugin had enqueued Version 3 and falling back to using a Select2 Version 3 adapter.
acf.newSelect2 = function( $select, props ){
Future-proof it or just fix it?
So, what does this have to do with custom

Hashing a Custom Taxonomy

When an engineer has amassed a collection of Pokemon cards, what does he do? Build a WordPress-based database site for cataloging it, of course!

Hashing a Custom Taxonomy

Development | webdevstudios.com | 10 days ago

I have a confession. I like Pokémon. It’d really be more accurate to say I never stopped liking it. Sure, there was that point when it wasn’t “cool” anymore and I was too busy trying to be “cool,” but this is the kind of thing that just sticks with me. So, naturally, I’ve built up a collection of Pokémon cards. And what does someone like me do when they have a collection of something?
Build a WordPress-based database site for cataloging it, of course! This is where hashing a custom taxonomy comes into the picture.
My current plan revolves around taking the card information from the third-party Pokémon TCG Developers API and combining it with the pricing information from TCGplayer. This will allow me to store information of not just every card I have, but every version of every card I have. The most common version is the reverse holographic printing (shown below). Other versions, especially rare, powerful cards, can include full-art versions, alternate-art printings, and even rainbow-colored “secret rare” cards.
The trick, however, is that in addition to being collectibles, Pokémon cards are also part of

Why you shouldn't delete your marketplace store(s), even if you have your own

You may already be advanced in the e-commerce game—but that shouldn't stop you from maintaining stock on Amazon, eBay, MercadoLibre, and other international marketplace sites.

Why you shouldn't delete your marketplace store(s), even if you have your own

Business | blog.weglot.com | 18 days ago

Many early e-commerce merchants (and you may be among them) start out on a marketplace platform. We mentioned Ebay, Etsy, and Depop in our most recent chat about international e-commerce, but there are others—even Amazon, the veritable Goliath of all things e-commerce, is, in large part, a platform for small independent vendors (this was one of Amazon’s original distinguishing features, back when its Marketplace was called « zShops» at its launch in 1999). Marketplaces give you few opportunities for propagating your personal brand, and aren’t ideal for developing a close relationship with your customers—these are the principal cons of such platforms when compared to an independent store site, which you, the store and site-owner, autonomously manage and can tailor to your own goals and ideas.
But marketplaces also provide some pretty significant advantages, particularly in the domains of traffic acquisition and notoriety among consumer communities.
It’s all in the algorithmsI
Since a marketplace essentially acts as a dedicated search engine for products, yours will be more likely to appear on the searches of sincerely interested customers than

Google Limits ‘aggregateRating’ and ‘review’ Properties

Community | surniaulula.com | 3 days ago

Google has recently updated their Review snippet structured data guidelines to limit the Schema ‘aggregateRating’ and ‘review’ properties to only a select handful of approved Schema types. The upcoming release of the WPSSO JSON v2.10.0 add-on will follow these new Review snippet structured data guidelines, instead of conforming to the official Schema standard, as the current version does.
If you notice a “not a known valid target type for the itemReviewed property” error in Google structured data validator results, the ‘aggregateRating’ and/or ‘review’ may be included in a non-approved Schema type.
The official Schema standard provides ‘aggregateRating’ and ‘review’ properties for these Schema types (and all their sub-types):

After revising their Review snippet structured data guidelines, Google’s structured data validator now allows ‘aggregateRating’ and ‘review’ properties only for these Schema types:

Top 3 Live Chat Plugins for WordPress

Community | mywptips.com | 3 days ago

Whether you are about to launch your website, or you already have a successful one, you are probably well aware of the fact that one site serves different purposes. One of the primary aims is to inform visitors about the products or services you’re offering. One way to do this is to put all of your content out there for your visitors to read. Going through page after page of explanations and descriptions can be a bit (understatement) tedious. To avoid that, the best you can do is to add a live chat option. With it, your customers can get answers to specific questions, which will better the chances of conversion.
Even if that isn’t the ultimate goal, and your website is pretty self-explanatory, a well-arranged live chat will find its purpose. It is an excellent way for you to start a conversation with your potential customers and get your visitors to spend more time on your website.
Why should you use live chat?
A well-built live chat will serve as a convenient way for your audience to clear any doubts and gather useful information about your services and products. It is a terrific tool that will help you form trustworthy relationships with your customers. Your customers

Traditional hosting is hurting WordPress

Editorials | convesio.com | 5 days ago

By Tom Fanelli, CEO and Founder, Convesio; 20 years of agency experience I’ve been building websites for 20 years and without a doubt, hosting client sites can be one of the most frustrating things about running an agency when something unexpected goes wrong.
For most agencies, providing hosting is a necessary evil. Clients expect it, and it doesn’t feel right not to offer it. At best, it’s a substantial recurring revenue stream that can support your agency through tough economies and at times when you lose clients. Offering hosting is actually really valuable, giving you stability in a project-based business.
At worst, it can be an easy way to lose time and money.
Over the years, we switched hosts dozens of times. In the early days of the business, we started out with cheap, shared hosting — as you do — and it caused no end of problems. We were plagued with downtime, sites weren’t just slow they were comatose, and trying to migrate from one server to another was like pulling teeth.
If a site was slow on the front-end, it was bad, but it was usually slower on the admin side of things, so backups, editing, installing plugins — all the stuff agencies

WordPress page builders, do you really need them? • CSSIgniter

Community | cssigniter.com | 12 days ago

For many years WordPress has been, and still is, the number one platform for site building. Its quick setup and ease of use made it a market leader. However, recently, the rise of build-your-own-site services like Wix, Weebly and Squarespace exposed a weakness in WordPress, the lack of easy drag & drop manipulation of page layouts, this made it difficult for end users and non developers to customize the site’s appearance, its layout was entirely dependent on the active theme. Luckily for all WordPress users, plugin developers quickly stepped up and gave us the ubiquitous drag & drop page builders. What are page builders
As mentioned before, WordPress is a very easy to use. It’s built to focus on content generation and eliminate distractions. Most of the things you need to do can be done with a few clicks via the Customizer or the various settings pages. However things get a bit more tricky when you need to create a brand new page template, or want to add widget in places where there are no widgetized areas, tasks like these require getting your hands dirty, creating a child theme and coding your new template, then, applying new styles where needed, as you might imagine

How translation can boost your e-learning marketplace revenue

Community | blog.weglot.com | 12 days ago

There’s a big emphasis on e-learning and online courses at the moment. Upskilling, efficiency, accessibility and the potential to achieve more, faster,are just some of the reasons why the e-learning industry has taken off at such an incredible speed.
In this hyper-connected world, it’s never been more important to address the rapidly evolving training and development needs of people – whether for personal or career gain.
An increasing number of companies rely on e-learning when looking to increase the skills of their employees, for both the growth of the company and employee retention.
And, naturally, the easiest, and let’s be honest, the cheapest way to do that is through e-learning otherwise known as online learning, which usually costs significantly less than sending staff members to offsite courses with extra budget needed for travel expenses.
But, it’s not just users of e-learning platforms that are reaping the benefits. Entrepreneurs are seeing the huge revenue potential to be made from selling e-learning courses.
And, by huge revenue we mean a projected industry worth of $37 billion dollars by 2020.
