I Love this Plugin and Support is Awesome

The support is just Awesome, I had an issue where an additional character was being added next to the “Join Waitlist” Support found the problem to be with my CSS and had it resolved immediately. Cant say enough good things about the plugin. It cheap too 🙂

Great plugin for the most part

My two main issues with this plugin are

1. The button to join the waitlist isn’t automatically visible with product variations unless a customer selects a variation. This causes a conflict for me because the products that are sold out, have a sold out badge. A customer is not going to bother to select a variation if the product is already visibly sold out. It would be nice if the button was visible no mater what. I did find a fix by editing the “Default Form Values: ” dropdown under the products variation setting and selecting one of the variation options. However this can still causes a conflict if you have variations sizes and the user does not change the drop down to the size they want. They may get a notification when you update that size but it may not be the size they actually wanted or they may miss the email when you update their correct size because they arent on the list for it. Also having to change each individual product may be very hard if you have a lot of products thankfully I don’t.

2. I am using the free version and I went in and edited some files within the plugin, mostly the wording. I understand if you have the paid version you may edit the verbiage easily in the settings however for customers who are using the free version they may not be savvy enough to edit it and the grammar sounds pretty unprofessional. I think you may want to look into updating that in the future.

Great Support + Plugin

I had to create varies Javascript updates to WooCommerce and this caused an error (that I wasn’t aware of) that prevented the plugin from working. The Author was able to run me through varies steps to lead me to this and now everything works.

Thank you for the assistance again, you saved my butt today!!!

Simple and Elegant – Great Support

WooCommerce Waitlist does exactly what it says and works very well for me. I had a small issue (that turned out to be unrelated to the plugin) and I received fast and friendly support. Good work!
