Saying Goodbye to WooCommerce
Regretfully, I have to admit that WooCommerce makes a mess of the WordPress database. And, since promoting partner products is not the goal of this website. I am separating it from this installation of WordPress.
Do not misunderstand me. WooCommerce is a great and solid product. I enjoy working with it, as much as anything. But, since I need this website to drive leads more than partner sales. I’m giving my partners their own store, off-site.
Sorry for the mess, recently. This will make things much more manageable for me and hopefully easier for you. Now, I only hope Google doesn’t ding me too hard for temporarily 301 redirecting all 404s to my front page (where this is sticky). It’s a price I will just have to pay for a month.
Saying Hello Again to WooCommerce
You can find all of your Acer, TigerDirect and Tech4Less discounts at https://shop.grayhatfreelancing.com.
That being said, let me make a few things clear about the store. The store is just promotional links to my partner’s products. I do not have access to your orders or payment information. The purpose is to allow my clients, potential clients and readers a chance to browse the offers my partners are wanting me to promote. A lot of them are very good deals for very solid products.
Let me be very clear. The shop is NOT a drop ship. Clicking on the product will take you to a product page with a brief description and provide other useful information like prices. Clicking on any of the buy buttons will take you directly to their official store and automatically apply my partner code for you.
I do benefit from the transaction. But, this is one of the few cases where it comes out of their end, not yours.
