Experience

  • WooCommerce Store Credit

    A custom store credit solution for WooCommerce that plays well with WooCommerce Subscriptions as well as one-off purchases. Allows current users to receive credit from an admin and enables new users to claim credit when they register. Credit can be applied at checkout and auto applies on subscription renewals. Includes admin lookup and reporting tools as well.

  • WooCommerce Loyalty Program

    A custom loyalty program for a WooCommerce site that awards points for dollars spent as well as points for custom actions taken. Customers can redeem points for store credit (another custom plugin I created). Integrates with WooCommerce Subscriptions.

    A custom REST API integration with a cryptocurrency client’s internal engineering Lambda API. Pricing is stored in custom DB tables on the WordPress site and made available through the WordPress REST API.
