Justin will be presenting on the topic of WordPress e-Commerce & Group Deals in the Power Users track. Here’s an extract from what you can expect to hear from Justin:
The story of Group Deals Plugin, the latest premium Plugin from Zao & GetShopped, is a classic example of the power of the WordPress community. While presenting on WordPress E-Commerce at WordCamp Philadelphia, someone in the audience asked if anyone had made a “Groupon” WordPress plugin. We hadn’t, but that was the spark for the WP Group Deals plugin.
First, I’ll be discussing some of the new features in the recently released WordPress E-Commerce 3.8. Then we’ll talk about the new Group Deals plugin, what people are doing with it and why WordPress make perfect sense for becoming a Groupon competitor.
