WooCommerce 7.1.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of WooCommerce 7.1. This release should be backward compatible with the previous version.

This release contains:

As always, we recommend creating a backup of your site and making sure that your theme and any other plugins are compatible before updating. You can check out this update guide for more information.

What’s new in 7.1?

Spotlight tour for products task

The new product spotlight tour intends to help new store owners to create their products in a guided way. It filters out distractions and includes helpful texts to describe essential fields within the product form.

You can try out the new spotlight tour by going to WooCommerce > Home and then Add products > Start with a template from the setup task list. Select any template, and then click on Go.

WooCommerce Blocks

New Block Patterns

WooCommerce Blocks now come with 6 new header and footer patterns each. You can view the new patterns here:

Woo Minimal Header | Dark
Woo Footer with 2 Menus | Dark

Filter for place order button label

The Place Order button either shows Place Order or the payment method label, e.g. Proceed to PayPal. However, a merchant couldn’t change the button label. A merchant can now change the label using a JavaScript snippet.

Snippet
const label = () => 'Pay now';

const { __experimentalRegisterCheckoutFilters } = window.wc.blocksCheckout;
__experimentalRegisterCheckoutFilters( 'custom-place-order-button-label', {
	placeOrderButtonLabel: label,
} );
Checkout Button

Cross-Sells on Cart Block

Go to your product’s data and add “Cross-sells” products in the Linked Products section.

When your customers go to their cart, if they have already selected any item featuring cross-selling products, these will show up right there, ready to purchase!

New @wordpress/data stores

Much of the data previously kept in React Contexts was moved into WordPress data stores (@wordpress/data) to make it easier for third-party extensions to extend the functionality of the Cart and Checkout blocks. All changes are backward compatible, further information about this feature is available here.

Actions and Filters

This release adds two new actions and one new filter.

Database Changes

For a complete overview of High Performance Order Storage, take a look at the posts we’ve previously made, such as this post with frequently asked questions, or this one that addresses backward compatibility.

Template Changes

This release does not contain any template changes.

Much 💜 to all the contributors

Finally a big thanks to everyone in the community who has contributed via issue reports, fixes, translation, testing, supporting other users, or simply spreading the word.

After half a million dollars in sales on Woocommerce I have a few of requests:
1. Gutenberg in product description, so that I can create colorful and stylish product descriptions instead of plain old text. I already enabled Gutenberg via a PHP script but it’s not officially supported
2. A new more modern Woocommerce backend. I know you’re already working on that (New Woocommerce Navigation experience), but for example the order page still features the old WordPress table, and the customers page feature the news tables.
3. Filter orders by payment gateway
4. export CSV orders without a plugin
5. Most popular Payment gateways in the core. Why do I need to install a plugin to use Stripe, Paypal, Klarna and even Woocommerce Payments
6. Printing packing slips. It’s an essential feature
