WooCommerce Downloadable Product Update E-mails

WooCommerce Downloadable Product Update E-mails

Introducing WCDPUE Pro. This plugin is a must have for any store which sells downloadable products such as e-books, courses, software etc. It takes out the tediousness of having to manually search for all buyers of a downloadable product and manually sending them an email about a new update to the product.

Lets say you upload version 1 of a file (e-book, music file, source file, software), 100 customers purchase this file, you now have a version 2 of that product. How will all 100 people who bought that item know that you have updated it?

Like this:




This plugin removes the need of having both WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads or any other downloads plugin installed. It works 100% with WooCommerce and adds the missing piece to a 100% WooCommerce ran store.

Note

If you previously had WCDPUE Lite installed on your website then be sure to delete the Lite version of the plugin and all it’s settings by select “Delete all plugin settings on uninstall?” on the WCDPUE Lite settings page and then deactivating and deleting it.

Features:




This plugin supports a full featured WordPress Editor like the one from your posts/page screen so you could design e-mails visually.



Automatically generate user first name, surname, the name of the product they ordered, it’s direct link and also the “My Account” URL of your website! Everything is done automatically by using e-mail variables such as:

Dear {first_name},
Your product: {product_name} has been updated!
Please log into your account to download the latest version.

{account_url}



Variable downloadable products are also supported.



The plugin comes bundled with 4 beautiful premade HTML e-mail templates, use the e-mail variables to set the final touch! Checkout the screenshots for a view of the bundled templates.



Schedule e-mails to be sent at a certain interval in batches. This helps prevent timeouts when stores have products with many buyers.



See how many e-mails are in queue left to be sent when you schedule a product update e-mail!

How to update the plugin:

Method 1

Extract the files of the freshly downloaded plugin then connect to your website via FTP using a FTP client like Filezilla and navigate to wp-content/plugins/wcdpue-pro overwrite its contents with the new copy you previously downloaded.

Method 2

Ensure you have no emails in queue by going to Settings->Update Product Emails (for v1.0.0), WCDPUE Pro (for v1.1.0+) untick the checkbox next to “Delete all plugin settings on uninstall?”, note, this will delete all your current settings so it’s a good idea to copy and save your email body in a text file while you perform the update. Save your changes.

Then go to Plugins and delete the WCDPUE Pro plugin. After it’s deleted install the freshly downloaded copy and activate it.
