I've tried so many of these solutions but this one just works. If you've been looking for a "recent sales notification" solution you know how many half-baked plugins are trying to do what WooBought does without a hitch. Looks good out of the box, but with the help of the quick + friendly email support it now looks exactly how I want it 🙂 Highly recommended.

Plugin it self is not bad, but very limited. Doesn't work well with IE, no problems with Chrome.. Works as demo version just to see how it looks..
