Our Commitment to Transparency and Collaboration
We are excited to announce the next step towards greater transparency and collaboration at WooCommerce – the launch of our new Public Roadmap! This platform is designed to give our developer community a view of our current projects, future plans, and the overall direction we’re headed.
Our mission has always been to empower developers with a high quality, scalable platform, and flexible, intuitive tools. But we understand that to truly make a difference, we need to make our processes as transparent as possible. The Public Roadmap is a testament to this commitment.
What Is The Public Roadmap?
The Public Roadmap is a living document detailing our plans for WooCommerce’s core platform and core products. It includes information about what we’re working on, what’s next in line, and what we’re considering for the future.
We’ve organized the roadmap into different categories: Ideation, Now, Next, and Later. This way, you can easily find the information you need and see where we’re focusing our efforts.
Projects in the “Ideation” phase are in the process of being planned, but no work has begun; “Now” is for projects that we’re currently working on; “Next” is for projects that we are committed to executing but haven’t started yet; and anything listed as “Later” is a project that we are scoping, and is likely happening but where work hasn’t been scheduled yet.
Why Are We Sharing This?
We believe in the power of our open-source community. Your feedback, ideas, and insights are invaluable to the ongoing development and growth of WooCommerce. By sharing our plans, we aim to foster a more open dialogue, encourage collaboration, and ensure we’re building a platform that truly meets your needs.
How Can You Use The Public Roadmap?
Visit developer.woocommerce.com/roadmap to see what we’re working on. Use it to understand our focus areas, prepare for upcoming changes, and find our project-pages where you can contribute your own thoughts and suggestions. We strongly encourage you to provide feedback – your input can directly influence our development decisions and priorities.
As we move forward, we’ll keep the roadmap updated with any new developments. We also plan to continue our regular office hours and community events where we can delve deeper into our roadmap items and listen to your feedback.
We hope this new level of transparency will foster greater collaboration and innovation within our developer community. We’re grateful for your continued support and are excited to embark on this journey together.

Stay tuned for more updates, and as always, happy developing!
