This case study showcases the power of the WooCommerce Sync & Enroll plugin, a powerful WordPress tool that enables seamless integration between WordPress/WooCommerce sites and Shapeshift LMS. The plugin allows the purchase of WooCommerce products to trigger enrolments into courses, and ensures WordPress and Shapeshift users are always linked and in sync.

User Synchronisation and Data Management

The plugin’s user synchronisation functionality seamlessly transfers new users from WordPress to Shapeshift, resulting in a unified and updated user database. Moreover, the two-way sync ensures continuous updates of user information between the platforms, fostering a harmonious data flow. Administrators can further tailor the integration by customising specific user role syncing and aligning user privileges across platforms with ease.

Automated Enrollment Processes

The automation provided by the plugin significantly enhances the enrollment experience for users. Upon purchasing simple and variable products, customers are automatically enrolled in Shapeshift courses, eliminating manual intervention and accelerating the onboarding process. 

Membership-Tier Access

Additionally, the plugin allows for membership-tier-based access, granting specific customer segments access to desired group-based content based on their product purchases and tier level. With dynamic group creation, customers can enjoy a personalised learning journey as new groups are created with custom names and managed seats, catering to their unique preferences.

Enhanced Order Management and Error Handling

The plugin goes beyond typical LMS features by empowering Shapeshift users to create additional orders with ease. This convenient functionality enables the purchase of extra seats for groups or unlocks content swiftly, fostering a seamless learning experience. 

The comprehensive action and error log act as a safety net, capturing every event and error, simplifying debugging, and ensuring smooth platform functionality. With error notifications promptly delivered to a chosen Slack channel, administrators can swiftly address any issues, maintaining uninterrupted learning processes. The ability to define error severity levels prioritizes critical issues, guaranteeing immediate attention to significant problems.

Efficient Administrative Control

The plugin empowers WordPress admins with powerful tools for batch user and order processing. Administrators can efficiently synchronise multiple users to Shapeshift or process numerous enrollment orders simultaneously, saving valuable time and resources. Furthermore, the JWT authentication via Rest API enhances platform security, allowing Shapeshift users to access WordPress with secure and seamless authentication.
