EDD Checkout Message

Description

Add as many custom messages to your Easy Digital Downloads checkout page as you need. Be it as a warning, a success message, an information area, or even an error, EDD Checkout Message will show your customers any message you’d like.

The conditions available for each message are:
* The cart’s total price is … ( = , < , <= , > , >= )
* The total number of items in the cart is … ( = , < , <= , > , >= )
* A particular item is present in the user’s cart. (search through existing Downloads)

Each message can have as many nested conditions as needed, and of any type.

EDD Checkout Message is brought to you by RebelCode, the team behind EDD Bookings, the bookings extension for Easy Digital Downloads.

Documentation

Configuration

Navigate to Downloads → Settings → Extensions.

This page consists of a list of messages that can be added. Each message can be configured with a style and can have any number of conditions.

Creating Messages

Start by entering the message that should be shown on the checkout page, and choose an appropriate style. The styles control the colour of the box that will contain the message, so choosing the right style ensures that the message is well received by customers.

Next, you can begin creating conditions for the message. If a message does not have any conditions, it will always be shown on the checkout page. This can be useful to create notices such as for temporary offers or to explain some terms.

Creating Conditions

To create a condition for a message, simply click the “Add Condition” button located in that message’s box. The condition will appear under the message text box and style.

The dropdown selector is for choosing a condition type. Upon selection, more options will appear under the selector, for configuring the condition.

A condition’s effect can be reversed by using the Not button. Clicking the Not button will make the button turn red to indicate that it is turned on. For example, a message that is shown when the cart’s total price is not more than 50.

Listed and Nested Conditions

Conditions can be either listed or nested.

Listed conditions are conditions that appear under each other as a list. A typical case is a message with, for instance, 3 conditions. These conditions form an “OR” relationship, meaning that the message will be shown if at least one of these conditions is true.

The plugin will help visualise this by drawing a connector between the conditions with the label “OR”.

The term “nested conditions” refers to conditions that have other conditions added to them. These conditions will form an “AND” relationship, meaning that the message will be shown if both conditions are true; just one of the conditions being true will not show the message. The plugin will help visualise this by adding the label “AND” between the two conditions.

Note: Nested conditions are not limited to two. The second condition can have other listed or nested conditions under itself. The possibilities are endless.
