Daniel Espinoza as been in the WooCommerce space since its release. Having working at WooCommerce and then going out on his own, he has discovered his niche is providing clients support for their WooCommerce subscription sites through his agency Grow Development.
Daniel also has a solid background in products as he runs the site Shop Plugins, which has some awesome WooCommerce plugins. I should know. I’ve written posts on every one of them here.
Subscription Services and Selling Products
Brad and I were able to dive in with Daniel on his choice to focus on subscriptions with WooCommerce, as well as his experience in the product space.
He also shared some words of wisdom as Brad asked him if the WordPress plugin space has reached the saturation point. From his own experience, Daniel talks about what he would do if he was considering this as a plugin developer.
As we continued talking about subscriptions, Daniel gave us some great examples of what is working and why subscription sites have exponentially grown over the last few years.
Subscription Extension Update
The release of 2.5.0 of the Subscriptions extension went out in early February, and we had the chance to ask Daniel his favorite new feature. We also talked about a couple of the other added options that came with this update. You can read more about it over on the Prospress blog.
WooCommerce 3.6 Beta 1 Released
Not a major update, but a mention of the product blocks will now be in WooCommerce core vs. the blog plugin.

Whoops. The 48-Hour WooCommerce Content Marathon
There are no do-overs in podcasting (at least not conveniently). So just the for the record, I had intended to mention my upcoming 48-Hour WooCommerce Content Marathon. That is 48 new posts on WooCommerce published every hour, on the hour, for 2 days. You can read more about that here.
