    I am currently working with a client who sells their artwork/costume pieces. This is a more specialized product rather than something that is stocked and sold, so a shopping cart (like what you would get with WooCommerce) doesnt suit the needs. I have used a custom content types plugin to create “Product” and “Order Queue” content types, with the latter being a set of fields that are displayed on pages to show where an order is as it goes through the building and designing stages. The challenge is the idea of having an actual order status system, in the sense that it has a set of notification emails to send out as each product reaches its stages (e.g. “Manufacturing”, “Painting”, “Shipped”). I have checked out some currently available plugins, and see only a few options (paid) that may remotely be in the neighborhood of concept for my use case. ((Example: https://wordpress.org/plugins/notification/ )). I even tried approaching it from the idea that what i need could be close to a mailing list style approach, so I have looked around plugins related to that, too. Any hel I imagine in cases of people building stores where they dont want the shopping cart functionality, they can turn some WooCommerce settings off. Any suggestions on what direction I should look? Curious on what other kinds of avenues exist, so I may approach this differently. – by hq overview RosettesandCSS – –
