Today we have an interview with another WooCommerce business that’s trying to make a difference in the world, this time in the field of human justice fashion.
Causegear employs crafters in India that get paid dignified wages to make high-quality bags, backpacks, purses and the like, which are then sold through Causegear’s website. The crafters’ stories are one of the most important parts of Causegear’s brand.
Brad Jeffery is the President-CEO-Servant of Causegear, and he was kind enough to sit down with me for a telephone interview to tell me more about Causegear, the crafters and human justice fashion.
Maybe you’ve been thinking about opening an online store on WooCommerce, but you feel like you need to learn more about it first.
Perhaps you aren’t sure which online store software to use.
Or maybe you’re a big-picture person, so you want to know more about global trends in eCommerce.
In this post, I’ll give you three courses that you can take now—or over the next few months—to learn more about eCommerce. They range from WooCommerce specific, to hybrid WooCommerce/eCommerce, to big-picture thinking.
The best part? They’re all either very affordable or free!
Kandace Brigleb really likes her coffee… and I mean really.
I counted 26 mentions of the word in the transcript of our interview.
That’s probably for the best, because Kandace and the rest of the seven person team at Needmore Designs are carving themselves a tasty little niche out of websites for specialty food and beverage businesses—many of which are coffee roasters.
Payments, payments, payments. I could write about them all day. In what’s shaping up to be the next innovation battleground, there’s just so much going on lately.
To that end, Accenture released its 2014 North American Consumer Payments Survey of 4,000 consumers last month. The survey canvassed respondents’ attitudes to different ways of making payments, as well as their expectations of the future.
WooThemes may have peaked too early… We have no idea how they are going to top their first WooConf, held November 3rd and 4th in San Francisco.
The Prospress team were thrilled to be a part of it, and all agree that the event totally exceeded our expectations!
For anyone that missed out (or if you want to relive the experience) we’ve pulled together all the links we could find in a recap, so that you can try to recreate the experience in your own home.
Be warned though, the teams at WooThemes and A2E did an amazing job decking out The Village with purple hues and creative touches (WooThemes jenga, nerdy terreriums), which would be hard to replicate.
But perhaps you can dust off your purple lava lamp (or stick some purple cellophane over a light), mix yourself a Bloody Mary, and begin to recreate the vibe…
You run an online store, which means that location doesn’t matter, right?
Not necessarily. Even though we spend a lot of time in the digital world these days, the physical world still exists, and still has an important influence on us.
Where we live, our friends, the local weather, local brands—these factors still heavily influence what we prefer and buy, including online.
And with the rise of mobile—and wearable—devices, location is playing an even more important role in our online experience.
In this post we ask the question: does location matter for eCommerce?
We’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a new, free WooCommerce Stellar Gateway extension.
There are over three million Stellar Facebook authorisations, but very few are selling via the Stellar protocol or in the Stellar cryptocurrency.
The WooCommerce Stellar Gateway is a way for non-developers to sell with Stellar.
If you can set up WordPress and WooCommerce, you can sell with Stellar.
What do small-scale, ethical sheep farming in Tasmania and WooCommerce have in common?
You might not think much, but that’s only if you haven’t yet heard of Nan Bray, founder of White Gum Wool.
Nan has kept an open mind and an inquiring eye on her farm and business. By paying attention to the behaviour of her flock, and using her scientific background to do some research of her own, Nan has discovered an ethical and sustainable way to graze sheep.
Nan’s willingness to do things differently has meant her 1,000 or so Merino sheep have flourished. And because of their superior health and nutrition, Nan’s flock produce wool so fine that it could be used in top-of-the-line Italian suits.
Bitcoin is mysterious. Is it the cryptocurrency used by criminals? A tool of anarchists? Or is Bitcoin simply a way to buy goods on Overstock.com?
Last week, Bitcoin news resource Coindesk released its Q3 State of Bitcoin Report for 2014, which helps unpack what is really going on with Bitcoin right now.
