» Plugin WooCommerce by Automattic
This free plugin in the WordPress repository (https://es.wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce/) is mandatory to use the Woomelly plugin. If WooCommerce isn’t installed correctly, the Woomelly plugin simply won’t work. We highly recommend working with the latest version of WooCommerce or versions greater than 3.0.0. However, we are also compatible with versions prior to this, albeit with certain functionality limitations (like the tax line in the sales extension). Contact support for more details.
It’s important to note that our tools are also compatible with these significant WooCommerce features:
- WooCommerce Admin Navigation: New WooCommerce admin navigation design. Learn more.
- High Performance Order Storage (HPOS): Optimization of WooCommerce order tables. Learn more.
» Plugin JetPack by Automattic
This is a free plugin in the WordPress repository (https://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/) and is packed with many tracking features. Woomelly is compatible with a specific image performance feature (site accelerator). When activating this feature in JetPack, it uses a CDN in your WooCommerce store to optimize images. Woomelly correctly captures these new image URLs when syncing from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre. Since Mercado Libre has many SSL protocol limitations for uploading images, this would be a quick, simple, and cost-effective solution. You can also set a specific URL for your image CDN in the advanced settings in Woomelly.
» Plugin WOOCS – Currency Switcher for WooCommerce. Multi Currency and Multi Pay for WooCommerce by realmag777
This is a free plugin in the WordPress repository (https://es.wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-currency-switcher/) and is used to change the currency price in WooCommerce. The Woomelly plugin is compatible when sending the correct rate from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre. With the Woomelly plugin, a currency conversion plugin isn’t necessary, as you can adjust the price of Mercado Libre publications without modifying the WooCommerce price. If you need to adjust the price for all your publications, we recommend doing it from the advanced settings in Woomelly.
If you sync from Mercado Libre to WooCommerce and use one of the other two (2) plugins: Plugin Currency per Product for Woocommerce by Tyche Softwares or Plugin Booster for WooCommerce by Pluggabl LLC. Contact us, we have a free solution for you.
» Plugin Visual Composer
This is a premium plugin (https://visualcomposer.com/) widely used in WordPress templates. The main issue is that enriched information (HTML) cannot be sent to the Mercado Libre description. It only supports plain text. The Woomelly plugin has an algorithm to remove tags from this plugin and convert the remainder to plain text to be sent to Mercado Libre from WooCommerce. Similarly, in the product detail, there’s a field to place a custom plain text description, allowing you to control the specific information you want your customers to see.
» Plugin WPC Product Bundles para WooCommerce (Free) by WPClever
This is a free plugin in the WordPress repository (https://es.wordpress.org/plugins/woo-product-bundle/) and is used to create bundles in WooCommerce. Often, it’s advisable to generate product “combos” or “kits” when selling on Mercado Libre (even they recommend it if the price is lower than even the commission or if you want to apply for Mercado Envíos discounts). One option is to use this plugin to create bundles and take them to Mercado Libre. With the Woomelly plugin, you won’t have problems updating inventory and correctly reflecting related products in order details.
» Plugin WP Crontrol by John Blackbourn & crontributors
Many of the processes that maintain the operability of the Woomelly plugin work with scheduled tasks (Cron) of WordPress. Therefore, a tool to manage these tasks is crucial in cases where they don’t work correctly. Since version 2.4.2 of Woomelly, the free WP Crontrol plugin was included as an additional library to access a set of features that allow knowing the status of these scheduled tasks in stores and thus ensure the proper functioning of the Woomelly plugin in all processes where these scheduled tasks are required. If you already have it installed, there will be no compatibility issue. If you don’t have it installed, no worries, as the Woomelly plugin will always maintain the latest version available.
If you need compatibility with third-party plugins in Woomelly for WordPress that aren’t listed here, you should contact Woomelly’s technical support through the appropriate channels to evaluate and provide a solution.
