Webhooks is a term used for sending data to a URL when an event happens. An example is when someone subscribes to an email marketing list, the service that manages the list can send data like the subscriber’s name and email to another system like a Customer Relationship Manager. WooCommerce Webhooks were added to the WooCommerce 2.2 codebase in July of 2014.
Recently I had a talk with Jai from SellWithWP.com. We talked about my background with WooCommerce, working on client projects here at Grow Development, and selling commercial WooCommerce plugins at ShopPlugins.com.
Today I relaunched the WooCommerce Office Hours show. The show is an hour long hangout, where I answer questions about running an ecommerce store with WooCommerce. The show airs every Tuesday at 2pm EST.
After a few years of selling the Store Locations Pro Magento extension, I’ve decided to retire it as of 6/1/2014. I will be focusing on different ecommerce platforms instead of Magento. It was a good run but with the latest Magento version, 1.9, being released and the new 2.0 version on the horizon I don’t want to keep up with the codebase.

If you have a Xero account, you know how it organizes your businesses accounting simply and elegantly. Now with Xero for WooCommerce, you can seamlessly integrate the sales data from your ecommerce site into your Xero account.
After you purchase and install the Xero for WooCommerce extension, the sales in your store will be automatically exported to Xero as invoices as they happen. Corresponding payments will also be created for the invoices.
The administrator can set up accounts for each of the sales items to be posted to using the Xero account number.
Line items from your orders are moved over to Xero with quantity and unit price. Shipping charges and discounts are added as line items.
All of this saves you time from doing data entry and allows you to access sales data for your ecommerce site, along with the rest of your accounts.
You can purchase Xero for WooCommerce here, and access the documentation for the product here.
