This week we chat to Chris Mason, the founder of a few plugins which extend WooCommerce. Making sales on the internet can be hard, and it’s made more difficult if the checkout process is not optimised as much as possible.

If you run a WooCommerce store then you’ll know that the checkout process, whilst perfectly okay, doesn’t really allow you to upsell items. Well, WooCurve aims to make that a reality. WooCurve allows you to hijack the checkout process so that you can offer all manner of other products that you think you’re customers are going to keen to buy.

After all, you’ve done all the hard work; you’ve got them to your site, you’ve managed to get them to pick some products, you’ve herded them to your checkout page, AND you’ve managed to get them to pay cold, hard, cash! Phew, that was a lot of work. At this point, they trust you, you’re legit. This would be a good time to offer some other things that they might like to buy!

Chris talks about how the plugin can be implemented in a few clicks so that you don’t have to cobble together your own solution and how this process should not be confused with shady internet marketeering. Oh, by the way, he also has a plugin that handles the creation of nice looking checkout pages – Handsome Checkout.
