Marcus Couch


In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Matt Cromwell, Head of Support and Community Outreach at WordImpress. We learn how WordImpress was founded, why the company entered the product space with the GiveWP donations plugin, and the inspiration behind the company’s mission statement to democratize generosity.

Cromwell also shared two of his favorite plugins with the audience. The first is EDD Metrics by Scott Bolinger, that adds metrics for businesses such as average revenue per customer, renewal rate, refund rate, and more. The second is Postman SMTP Mailer/Email Log by Jason Hendriks, that assists in the delivery of email generated by WordPress. You’ll have to listen to the show to find out why Cromwell enjoys these two particular plugins.

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Minimum Order Amount for Woocommerce allows you to set a minimum amount for WooCommerce orders. You can also configure the notification message that is sent when the minimum amount is not reached.

WooCommerce Waitlist lets you track demand for out-of-stock items, ensuring customers feel informed, and therefore more likely to buy. When a product is back in stock, an email is automatically sent to notify interested customers.

Woo Dynamic Quantity Table works with the official WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing plugin, but takes it a step further. Once dynamic pricing data has been entered and the plugin is activated, it automatically displays a table with the price and quantity next to the product.
