Wordpress - Fix WooCommerce Email Notifications

Avg Bid (AUD)
Project Budget (AUD)
$10 - $30

Project Description:
We have a Wordpress woocommerce store.

Everything is fine except the fact that email receipts/notifications are not send to either the customer placing the order or the admin. However, when the order has been placed by the user I can see it in the order list in Woocommerce where the status by default is set to "pending". When I change the status of the order to "In progress" the email receipt and notification is send to both customer and admin.

This project is to ensure that email receipts are sent to customers and email notifications are sent to admins when orders are placed. I need the receipt to be send out to the customer and admin immediately after the order has been placed.

I have heard here's been similar issues with Paypal as payment gateway. This guy has exactly the same problem but that is due to some IPN configuration:

I have also heard "This is most likely a problem with outgoing emails on your server and nothing to do with WooCommerce. Please use a SMTP plugin to send out email, like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/"

Skills required:
Paypal API, Wordpress
