Hello there, how’s your day?
Welcome back to our WooWeekly appointment – here comes a series of WooCommerce tutorials, expert thoughts and business-related stuff handpicked for you so that you can learn something new!
WooWeekly is put together by Rodolfo Melogli, founder at Business Bloomer, your go-to blog for WooCommerce tips and, for the month of September 2021, also by David Mainayar, co-founder at PeachPay, the backed-by-WooCommerce 1-click checkout solution.
So, today marks a new beginning (that’s why I used “phoenix”) for WooCommerce Weekly: a new name (WooWeekly), more content, a co-author, a new site (wcwkly.com) and a new email provider. September is going to be awesome, and hopefully the start of something big (actually, bigger, given we’re already 12,000+ here!).
As promised when you signed up on Business Bloomer, you’re totally free to stop receiving all emails: simply click here and immediately unsubscribe. Thanks for being part of WooWeekly! On the other hand, happy to have you still on board; if you want to spread the word about WooWeekly you can simply tell friends and colleagues to sign up at wcwkly.com. Thanks a lot!
So, let’s get started.
WooCommerce: Create An Order From Another Website!
This is going to be a great tutorial. And it works for sure, because I’ve just implemented it on the brand new WooWeekly website! Basically I was looking for a way to create an order on Business Bloomer WooCommerce website when a customer registered from the My Account page on the WooWeekly WooCommerce website. The reason for doing that is that I’m using email marketing on Business Bloomer, and the only way to add an email contact from another website was by using the “REST API” that WooCommerce provides. Now, I learned all this today, so you can manage to achieve complex stuff too. I’ll just save you a couple of hours of headaches trying to figure out how the system works – that’s why you’re here! So, how do you create a WooCommerce order on one website when an event occurs on another website? Enjoy: https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-create-an-order-from-another-website/
WooCommerce: Top Product Recommendation Plugins
If you’re running an ecommerce site and haven’t spent any time thinking about the product recommendation experience your customers are having, then it’s incumbent on you to start doing so immediately. You might not be able to make recommendations as precise as those of Amazon (that’s almost a certainty when you lack access to the mountains of data Amazon is harvesting to make ever-relevant suggestions), but you might as well work with what you have. In this blog post, we will focus our attention on those plugins that let merchants make recommendations on product and cart pages, regardless of whether the shopper has loaded the cart with anything: https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-product-recommendation-plugins/
WooCommerce: Top 7 Dropshipping Plugins (2021)
The dropshipping industry is expected to rise by almost $557 billion by 2025. So, if there’s a time to kickstart your dropshipping journey, it’s today. Apart from being one of the most profitable business models today, dropshipping also has a low entry barrier. You can easily create a dropshipping store with WooCommerce in a few clicks. However, managing and running an online dropshipping business is much more than just building a store. Luckily, you can use many plugins and extensions with your WooCommerce store to make your processes and operations more efficient. If you want to take your dropshipping store to the next level and butter-smooth everything from inventory management and listing to product and supplier selection with plugins – this article is for you.

TGIF: Biz Dev Fridays
Thank God It’s Friday (if you come from Mars and were wondering what TGIF stands for): today it’s my first official “Business Development Friday” since I announced I’m working on making businessbloomer.com more acquirable. Fridays will be dedicated to business development. No client work, no client emails, no content, no social, nothing else. Just pure “planning and getting things done” time. In this way, I have no distractions and can focus on reaching my ultimate goal of selling Business Bloomer for 1M USD. So, what will Biz Dev Fridays look like at Business Bloomer HQ?
