The basic Broadcast plugin supports WooCommerce product sharing just by adding the product custom type to the settings. That in itself should be enough to create a white label product list, but this add-on might offer some more broadcasting options that could be useful:

  • attribute taxonomies
  • AutomateWoo workflows
  • category images
  • category display type
  • cross-sells
  • German Market plugin
  • membership plans
  • order sync (see notes)
  • stock sync
  • swatch images
  • swatch taxonomy images
  • upsells
  • variations
  • Variation Swatches and Photos plugin

If you have a product gallery, use the Custom Field Attachments add-on to broadcast the “_product_image_gallery” custom field.

If you would like your PDF Vouchers to be automatically synced between all linked products, see the extras/woocommerce directory. Copy the sync plugin to your WordPress plugins directory and activate it network-wide. The reason the plugin is separate is because not everyone needs automatic syncing.

Notes

Order sync

This is an experimental feature as of 2016-07-15. It works for me, and it works for my testers, but test it yourself before applying the function live. Contact me regarding if it works for you – or doesn’t.

The feature uses the Back To Parent add-on to sync orders between blogs. If a visitor orders a broadcasted product, the order is copied over to each linked blog.

Changing the status of broadcasted orders is currently only supported using the bulk actions dropdown and the tickbox. Changing the status by editing the order is not currently supported, although will be in the future as soon as more reports come in.

Reviews sync

If you enable the Comments Broadcast add-on your reviews will be synced automatically between all broadcasted products that have comment syncing enabled.

Stock sync

This option will keep the stock of all broadcasted products in sync with each other.

Variations per queue

Do your products have so many variations, with so many images, that your broadcasts are failing / timing out even though you’re using the queue? Use this setting to divide the variation broadcasting of each product into several pieces so the broadcast doesn’t take too long. The setting controls how many variations of a product are broadcasted per queue process occasion.

Try 5 variations per queue to start off with, since that shouldn’t take longer than PHP’s default time limit of 30 seconds. How many variations you have time for per queue depends how complicated the variations are. You can use debug mode and manual queue processing to see if Broadcast has time to finish before running out of time.

So if you have a product with 100 variations, using a value of 5 variations per queue, it will take 20 queue processes (100 / 5) to completely broadcast the complete product with variations.

This setting only works with the queue enabled.

  1. Hello,

    I have purchased the Woocommerce add-on. One major problem that we’re encountering is that it’s not broadcasting the product gallery, just the featured image. Your product descriptions states that it broadcasts gallery images. Please assist, this urgent for us.

    Thank you

  2. Report from a user regarding the variations per queue setting: “Just to keep you updated. I experimented a bit with variations number so that it does not cause timeouts (I set 30 in the end), set up the cron job and after a while the queue is empty. So this works well on my end.”
