      Great to have you. If I'm remembering right, you asked about migrating your Shopify store over right? I found this link for you, hope it's helpful: https://wordpress.org/...­

      I mentioned to our head of product that you'd asked, and he is going to look into how we can make this easier for people. So, thank you for nudging us :)

    • Elliot T.

      Thanks Piccia - I've used Cart2Cart with good success. It wasn't very plug and play when I used it, but they had a great support team. I also migrated from zen cart (urgh!).. Good luck!

    My first #woocommldn, but not my last. Great talks, good company, perfect venue and free pizza and beer. What more could you ask for? Thanks for having me.

  • Jerome D.

    I'd like to know a bit about best practice in improving Woocommerce with additional UX design + testing.

    April 27, 2015

    • Jerome D.

      There's a stack of Woo plugins I have bought and implemented - however I need some extra pointers on UX testing and improving conversion rates... so I'm not just shooting in the dark ;-)

      April 27, 2015

    • Jerome D.

      Really Sorry. Can't make it now. See you at the next one!

  • Adrian

    Would anyone fancy giving a few words of advice on building a woo-comm compatible theme pls? Looking forward .. see you

    April 13, 2015

    • Gabor J.

      There will be a lot of people who work with WooCommerc, so I'm sure you'll be able to pick people's brains. That said WC has a short documentation on this: http://docs.woothemes...­

      1 · April 16, 2015

    • Adrian

      In the first instance I'll probably create a new/child theme. Looks straightforward so far

      1 · April 27, 2015

  • Rich S.

    I'd like to know about best practices in SEO for WooCommerce. Recommended plugins for SEO, for example Yoast WooCommerce SEO plugin. Also any tips on analytics and tracking conversions.

    • Marina P.

      Thanks Rich! Adding this to our list :)

    My company, NearCollect, is helping WooCommerce users compete with the big bricks and clicks retailers. We provide click and collect locations to WooCommerce users who might not have a network of shop collection points like, say, Marks & Spencer do. We're currently looking for a large WooCommerce shop to pilot with, so that we can then roll out availability to all WooCommerce users! I look forward to meeting you all. Check out our explainer video at nearcollect.com :)

    • Marina P.

      Sounds super interesting, Jack. Look forward to meeting you later.

    Will you record it? That would be nice. (Can't make it today, client requested late review. Huh.)

    April 27, 2015

    • Marina P.

      Hey there. We might not record, but will definitely share slides and a summary of the Q&A :) See you next time!

    If anyone has a question (I.e Adrian asked about building WC
    Compatible themes), share it here and we'll take some time to answer all / as many as possible after Eliot's talk :)
