WooCommerce 4.0: Better, More Efficient Store Management

This release integrates WooCommerce Admin into WooCommerce Core, which includes:

  • Enhanced reporting tools and analytics
  • Simplified notifications
  • Improved store management tools

Let’s dive a little further into the benefits that WooCommerce 4.0 brings to your store.

Learn how your site is performing with analytics and reporting tools built into the WooCommerce dashboard

The biggest new feature included in WooCommerce 4.0 is WooCommerce Admin, a modern, Javascript-driven way to manage your online store. While you may already be familiar with this feature plugin, it is now available to everyone and built directly into WooCommerce core.

Here are a few key elements that will save you time and increase transparency:

A streamlined dashboard

WooCommerce Admin was built around a new, central dashboard, designed to simplify your workflow. Customize reports to fit the needs of your store — set specific date ranges, choose how charts are displayed, categorize information, and show only the data that’s important to you.

Do you have multiple users? Settings are stored on a per-user basis, so each member of your team can quickly find the information they’re looking for.

Improved reporting with 14 different data points

Collecting and interpreting data helps you reduce costs, optimize supply management, and increase sales. WooCommerce 4.0 offers a reporting feature with a quick overview of how your store is performing.

WooCommerce new visual reports

Woocommerce 40 has 14 different data points, including total sales, net sales, orders, average order value, returns, shipping, and downloads (for digital products).

Woocommerce 4.0 report filters

You can also access 12 new reports,filter data quickly, compare date periods, and download CSV files.

Reports include:

  • Orders
  • Revenue
  • Stock
  • Coupons
  • Customers

Make the most of your data with advanced filters and adjust reports based on specific customers, numeric values, emails, and countries.

Time-saving store management tools and notifications

The new Activity Panel helps you quickly access the management tools you use most often. It includes an inbox system that simplifies notifications — no more weeding through the information you don’t need!
