We previously reviewed some plugins Sean has worked on. For example: Benchmark Email Lite, all the way back in Episode 73!

If you’re a plugin developer and you’d like to appear on the show, you can schedule an interview, donate your plugin for an upcoming contest, or submit your plugin for review.

For the last 2.5 yrs he’s been focusing on sites powered with WooCommerce. What makes WooCommerce great is it lets you customize, manage costs, and choose vendors much easier.

There’s also a ton of plugins if the basic settings/options aren’t enough. These range from WooCommerce official extensions that WooCommerce.com “sells” (A subscription that entitles you to 1 year of updates and support from the date of purchase) to Premium 3rd party plugins, and then there’s usually freemium ones on WP.org

Usually Sean helps with upgrading, infrastructure, and back-end.

In this interview he also discusses CRM and some wisdom about WooCommerce.

He writes code snippets to edit things that are company-specific or not working quite right. He uses the Code Snippets plugin, which is officially recommended by WooComerce!
