    What’s Trending in WooCommerce This April

    Last Updated | June 20, 2024

    Spring has arrived in many parts of the northern hemisphere, and with it, a wave of fresh updates and exciting features in the WooCommerce world. Here’s a quick look at the latest developments in WooCommerce.

    Order Attribution Tracking

    WooCommerce 8.5 introduces order attribution tracking, a new feature that helps businesses track which marketing efforts lead to customer conversions.

    This tool uses a last-click attribution model, which credits the final interaction before a customer lands on your site. This feature is available by default, but you can enable or disable it in WooCommerce settings.

    Product Details Block and Developer Documentation

    WooCommerce 8.6 includes a new style for the Product Details block, offering a modern and mobile-friendly design for product pages.

    Additionally, WooCommerce has launched a revamped developer documentation resource, with essential guides for developers working on WooCommerce extensions, themes, or custom projects.

    WooCommerce Blocks Integration and Command Palette

    WooCommerce has rolled out a block-based checkout, a new code-free customization tool for a smooth and intuitive checkout flow. This feature reduces friction and offers instant field validation and express payment options.

    WooCommerce also recognized the expertise of eCreations and Inspry Media, awarding them Platinum and Silver certifications, respectively, for their WooCommerce development and maintenance.

    Insights from the WooCommerce Blog

    New tools like License Manager for software licenses, Pizzeria Theme for fast food businesses, and Price on Request & Quote for automated pricing requests.
