It’s time for another look at our Store Editing roadmap. Our team has been hard at work creating a no-code, block-based solution to make store customization easy with WooCommerce. This roadmap provides a high-level overview, not a complete list or timeline — it will change as we learn and adapt to users’ needs and the commerce landscape.
Check our previous updates.
Products Block and Product Archive Templates
This new block will power product archive blocks, allowing users to have more control over the experience. The team is fixing bugs and polishing the UX to ensure the block is available for anyone as soon as possible.
Our work on blockifying the Product Archive templates also provides a compatibility layer to ensure extensions modifying these views continue to work.
Global Styles support in the Cart and Checkout
We’re working towards having global styles support across the Cart and Checkout blocks to ensure a cohesive look and feel with any block theme.
Single Product Template
The template will soon be powered by blocks which will unlock more flexibility to have this critical page tailored to the user’s needs. The template will be accompanied by patterns designed with best practices in mind.
Please check the latest Snaps post for a comprehensive overview of all the work in progress.
Order Confirmation page with Blocks
In addition to providing details about tracking information or delivery times, this page can increase customer satisfaction and revenue through cross-selling actions and more. Having it based on blocks is the first step toward a more engaging and flexible experience.
Category Grid Block and Patterns
Promoting categories in different forms and shapes is a must-have in many stores. Users will be able to create and use dynamic layouts in a blink of an eye.
Beyond the Single Product Template
We’ll leverage the learnings gathered from blockifying the single product template and expand the experience to other product types, such as variations.
We aim to keep enhancing the product filtering features of our blocks, including a new block that allows users to filter by category.
Cart & Checkout Blocks conversion improvements
We’ll explore a series of enhancements and changes, including creating templates, to ensure we have the best-in-class experience and improve conversion rate.
We’re also identifying and prioritizing key areas in our feature set where we should expand the functionality and improve performance.
And that’s it for today. We can’t wait to unveil these updates and see the impact they will have on our product experience. In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and feedback. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to add your comments to this post or use the following channels:
- The GitHub discussions feature in the WooCommerce Blocks repository collects ideas, feature requests, feedback, and general Q&A around extensibility and customizations. We’ve recently also started using this to highlight topics specific to WooCommerce and full site editing.
- We’re also gathering feedback and ideas through this form that doesn’t require any login if you’d prefer to use it instead.
Stay tuned for more updates and exciting announcements in the coming months.
