Single Cart on WooCommerce for WordPress MultiSite
WordPress WooCommerce is the best solution for e-commerce, with a powerful core and lots of extensions (free or commercial) to cover up pretty much everything you need to implement for a shop.
Despite the fact MultiSite environment is available for years now, the WooCommerce developers didn’t accord necessarily attention to such an environment, so at the moment there are no implementations for MultiSite, which are vital for a specific business.
Let’s clear that out, WooCommerce is deployable on MultiSite. It is activable network-wide or individual sites, create products, variations, set-up shipping etc, the same as on a regular install. However not work as a unitary marketplace with a single cart solution or a single checkout point.
There’s been a huge interest during the last years for such implementation, many users asked lots of questions about these functionalities. In fact, the most active topic on WooCommerce Ideas website is related to this WooCommerce Multi-site Shopping Cart Feature The idea was posted many years ago and gained more than 2700 votes up to date. The truth is that the functionality requires lots of work and changes within the framework which makes the compatibility with the older systems a challenging problem to solve.
During the last years, there have been certain attempts from other developers across the works to find solutions, but with limited results, functionality and total inconsistency.
We took this idea into our hands and created a beautifully crafted code, the WooCommerce Global Cart, 100% functional, which implement all required options and more.
- Single cart (global cart)
- Unique location for Checkout (or on any shop)
- Unique user management across all shops
- SSO implementation for sign-in availability on all sites
- Compatibility with WooCommerce themes
