  • The Settings page for the plugin has been redone. We are now using the WordPress Settings API for all the options on that page.
  • When the plugin is installed & activated for the first time, 1 default email template will also be created. The template will be inactive when the plugin is activated.
  • A new setting is added on the Add/Edit Template page named as "Active". If this setting is checked, only then the abandoned cart reminder email will be sent to the customers. If this setting is unchecked, then the email template won't be sent to the customers, but still you can keep it in the plugin. By default, this is unchecked.
  • A new setting is added on the Add/Edit Template page named as "Use WooCommerce Template Style". If this setting is checked then abandoned cart reminder email will use the WooCommerce style (header, footer, background, etc.) for the notifications. If it is not checked then the regular email will be sent to the customer as per the formatting that is set in the template editor. For existing users, this setting will remain unchecked. For new users of the plugin, the setting will be enabled for the existing default email template that is provided with the plugin.
  • Abandoned cart email notification will be sent to the client's billing address entered on checkout instead of on the email address added by the user while registering to the website. This applies only for logged in users.
  • New shortcode "{{cart.abandoned_date}}" has been introduced in this version. It will display the date and time when the cart was abandoned in the abandoned cart email notification.
  • When a customer places an order within the abandoned cart cut off time, then the order received page was displaying a warning. This has been fixed.
  • Abandoned Orders tab was not sorting according to the "Date" column. Same way, Recovered Orders tab was not sorting according to "Created On" & "Recovered Date" column. This has been fixed.

3.1 2017-04-07
  • New Feature - The email sending logic has been changed. Due to some reason, the abandoned cart remainder emails are not sent to the customers at the time they are intended to be sent, and if after some time, the emails start sending, then multiple email templates whose interval has been reached were all sent together. Now, the plugin will also consider the last abandoned cart reminder email sent time and will keep a time gap between the last email template that was sent & the current email template's time, thereby ensuring emails are not sent together.

  • Bug Fixed - The "Alter" table queries have been changed in the plugin. Instead of using get_results(), it now uses the query().

  • Bug Fixed - We have used the encryption libraries mcrypt_encrypt, MCRYPT_MODE_CBC, MCRYPT_RIJNDAEL_256 to generate the cart links sent in the abandoned cart reminder emails. Due to this on some servers where these libraries were not enabled, the abandoned cart email notification were not sent to the recipients. This has been fixed.

  • Bug Fixed - Earlier the "InnoDB" table engine type was hardcoded in plugin queries. As a result, the plugins tables were not created where the engine type was other than "InnoDB". This has been fixed.

  • Bug Fixed - Some warnings were displayed in the Debug log file. This has been fixed.

  • This version has 1 new feature and 3 enhancements.

  • New Feature - New setting named as "Enable tracking carts when customer doesn't enter details" on the settings page. When this setting is enabled it will enable tracking of abandoned products & carts even if the customer does not visit the checkout page or does not enter any details on the checkout page like Name or Email. Tracking will begin as soon as a visitor adds a product to their cart and visits the cart page.

  • Enhancement - The default settings value for "Cart abandoned cut-off time" for logged-in users has been modified to 10 minutes.

  • Enhancement - The Settings tab of the plugin has been redesigned. Now, the plugin will display 2 sub-tabs for different settings.

The settings of add/edit email template "Send From This Name", "Send From This Email Address" & "Send Reply Emails to" has been moved to the Settings -> Email Sending Setting tab.

  • Enhancement - In this version we have introduced three new views of abandoned orders in the Abandoned Orders tab. The views named are "All", "Registered Users", "Guest Users" & "Carts without Customer Details". The "Registered Users" view will display only the logged-in user's abandoned carts. The "Guest Users" view will display the guest user's carts & "Carts without Customer Details" view will display all the abandoned carts of the guest users who have not entered an email address or any information on the checkout page.

2.6 2017-04-07

2.8 2017-04-07
  • We have changed the encryption for the links that are sent in the Abandoned cart email notifications. Earlier we were using the mcrypt library for encoding the data. If mcrypt library was not installed on the server, then abandoned cart email notifications were not sent. Now we have used different functions for encoding the string. We have used microtime function & a security key. Using this security key, and after applying an algorithm on it, we generate the encoded string.

  • The session now starts only on required pages of the store. Earlier it was started globally. This will help to improve the site performance.

  • If billing email address of the logged-in user is not set then it was showing blank space on the abandoned orders list. This has been fixed. Now it will show the email address which was used while registering to the store.

  • Earlier if email body was blank and we send the test email then blank email was sent. This has been fixed. Now if email body is blank then test email will not be sent.

  • Tweak - Earlier if the 'wp-content' directory has been renamed, then wp-load.php file was not included and abandoned cart reminder email was not sent. Now, we have changed the way of including the wp-load.php file for sending the abandoned cart reminder notifications.

  • Tweak - Earlier when {{products.cart}} merge tag is used in abandoned cart email template, then on click of the product name and product image, it was redirecting to the product page. Now it will redirect the user to the cart page.

  • Tweak - We are now rounding off the prices with the 'round' function.

2.9 2017-04-07
  • Bugs Fixed - Earlier if any user came from abandoned cart reminder email and place the order using PayPal payment gateway and do not reach the order received page. Then plugin was not considering that order as a recovered order. From now onwards if the user came from the abandoned cart reminder email and place the order using PayPal and does not reach the order received the page. Then plugin will consider that cart as a recovered order.

  • Bugs Fixed - When the cart is abandoned as a guest & product have the special character in the attributes name, then it was displaying a blank row with only a checkbox on the Abandoned Orders tab. This has been fixed.

  • Tweak - If the order is recovered from the abandoned cart reminder email then it will add a note "This order was abandoned & subsequently recovered." for the order.
