Reviews

Page speed

4 days I was configuring, optimazing my Woocommerce site becouse load time was 6-9 sec.
After deactivating this plugin. Page load time 3 sec.

Plugin description lists premium features

Update: Plugin Description has been edited, clearly stating what features are free and what are premium.

Was looking for a sharing button allowing share via email. Kiwi Social Share lists that as a feature of the plugin. But after installing the plugin, it’s revealed that share via email is a premium feature..

I’ve got no problem with the free/premium feature price model, but don’t list features here on wordpress.org that aren’t free without explicitly stating that they are premium features – it’s just wasting everybodys time.

Best regards
Bjarne
