So here is my problem: my non-profit org is having an event where we will be selling tickets that require registration to our event. EE seems to be the best choice do to its ability to have group registrations for couples and people buying tables, as well as sponsors who get a few complementary tickets. EE has the ability to integrate with the WP user table information. We were considering using woocommerce because, if I am not mistaken, woocommerce can also integrate with the WP user table information.

What we are looking to do is have the ability for people that register for the event with EE to have a “wishlist” of things they want to buy during the event that they can pay for at the end of the night / during their “check out”. Is is possible for woocommerce to use /access the user registration information that EE created during the event registration to create a “wishlist” for that same user? Hope this makes sense. Thank you for your time

Hi Marco,

Event Espresso does not by default add registrants to the WordPress user database. There is a function that one of the developers created that can assist with this, though it may require further customisation for your needs.

However, it sounds to me like you will need some sort of customisation to go down the route you are proposing, I am thinking that it would need to add data to the user profile and then Woocommerce to pull that data off of the profile, so the customisation would both be from Event Espresso and Woocommerce as firstly EE doesnt add users or data to profiles and secondly I do not believe Woocommerce has any system to grab that data.

You can make a wishlist via Event Espresso questions, so the user can select the items they want from a list/checkbox etc during the registration process. This is saved in the registrants details/database, but again, accessing that data would require a custom function/plugin or of course manually.

Overall, you will need a developer to bridge the gap between EE and Woocommerce, we have a list of recommended developers here
