 June 20th, 2019

Once a separate company, Prospress, has been acquired by Automattic, the makers of WooCommerce.  It is fitting because Propress is a WordPress addon designed to work in conjunction with WooCommerce.  So what is Propress, and how can you benefit from it with your WooCommerce site?  Let’s take a look.


AutoMateWoo helps you increase sales when you utilize the ultimate WooCommerce marketing automation plugin.  With AutomateWoo, you can create abandoned cart emails, follow up SMS, personalized coupons, cross-sells, and more.  AutomateWoo has everything you need to convert and retain customers Automatically (pun intended!).

Robot Ninja

Don’t you hate it when your sales are so slow that you feel something could be wrong?  Then, embarrassingly, you receive emails or telephone calls from customers that your cart isn't working?  Almost 80 percent of WooCommerce store managers test their checkout manually.  Now it can be done automatically.  Robot Ninja provides end-to-end testing for a WooCommerce store’s cart and checkout functionality, without any code.  You can also connect and test multiple stores from a single account.  Another feature is being able to verify your checkout to ensure that it works in staging or live mode with real payments.


WooCommerce Subscriptions help entrepreneurs sell subscriptions to all manner of digital and physical goods.  This means you can create and manage products with recurring payments.  These payments will give you residual revenue that you can track and count on.

Action Scheduler

Used by Subscriptions, Memberships, and WooCommerce core, if your WordPress plugin needs a job queue, Action Scheduler can help.  Action Scheduler is a scaleable, traceable job queue for background processing massive queues of tasks in WordPress, with the addition of logging and an administration interface, that also provide traceability on your tasks processed in the background.  It is designed for distribution in WordPress plugins and no server access required.

Action Scheduler is a library for triggering a WordPress hook to run in the future. Each hook can be scheduled with unique data, to allow callbacks to perform operations on that data. The hook can also be scheduled to run on one or more occasions.  In other words, it is similar to an extension to do_action(), which adds the ability to delay and repeat a hook.

Small Woorld

With Small Woorld, Action Scheduler publishes stories of WooCommerce entrepreneurs from around the world as they pursue the journey to success (or failure).  https://smallwoorld.com

You can also obtain dozens of free plugins on Prospress’ GitHub profile.  These take advantage of the open-source foundation of WooCommerce and Subscriptions so you can tweak it to your needs.
