WooCommerce 4.0 will be the second release of 2020 and is currently scheduled for March 13th. As a major release, the update brings many changes which will dramatically impact how e-commerce businesses view their product sales. Some of the main changes you can expect to see are listed below.

Admin interface

One of the main features coming to WooCommerce 4.0 is the inclusion of the new admin interface. This interface provides a modern, JavaScript-driven experience for managing your store and includes:

A new dashboard

The new dashboard allows you to easily and effectively customise your screen with specific performance indicators which correspond in importance to your store’s operation.

New and improved reports

There are a range of new reports which have been optimised for speed and have advanced filters that allow you to delve into your store’s data. This includes reports on revenue, orders, products, categories, coupons, taxes, downloads, stock and customers.

Through these reports, you can see which categories are selling the most in your store, identify customers who are the biggest spenders over the lifetime of their interaction with your brand and analyse which coupons from campaigns are being used.

WooCommerce 4.0 also brings an improved notification experience and new store management tools. The different changes drive WordPress towards a more powerful and reactive experience that makes use of the latest technology to improve the day-to-day running of your store.

EDGE Creative

The release is due on March 13th and will revolutionise how you see product sales. At EDGE Creative, we will be rolling this update out on the relevant client’s website this month as part of their web care plan.
