Lots of new and updated products this week! Really liking the changes to AffiliateWP.

  • AffiliateWP released a significant upgrade! Version 1.2 adds cool stuff like per-product referral rates, a tabbed affiliate area for easier navigation, improved affiliate screening, and better search in the “Visits” page. The easiest affiliate solution keeps getting better 🙂 .

  • We mentioned the Squarecode theme for EDD a few weeks ago when it was released, and Frontend Submissions support has already been added!

  • Paid Memberships Pro released a KISSmetrics integration for WordPress that can be used with our without PMPro. This lets KISSmetrics track user events such as registration and PMPro events for better site analytics. Not sure how KISSmetrics works? Check out our article on using it with WooCommerce.

  • iThemes has created Exchange Demo Sites so that you can check out some of the add-ons in the Pro Pack (which we reviewed recently).

  • Aside from WordCamp Boston, I’ll also be attending WooConf. Want to meet up there? You can register to win a free ticket – flights and hotel included – from WooThemes.

  • And while we’re talking about WooThemes, they also released another Canvas child theme this week. Bon Appetit is a restaurant-focused theme that fully supports the free, lightweight Restaurant plugin from Justin Tadlock.

  • New WooCommerce tutorial from Sean Cull: How to make the VAT field mandatory.

  • WP EasyCart released some new updates, including a new advanced description editor and Amazon S3 integration.

  • Looking into shipping options for your store? Here’s an interesting comparison of FedEx, UPS, and USPS from My Wife Quit Her Job.

  • We recently wrote about SiteGround vs Media Temple vs DreamPress for new eCommerce sites. Want more info about SiteGround? See our detailed review or this new review from WPforAll.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!
