    I'm confused by your statement in the plugin update, what kind of data am I at any risk of losing? Statistics data, or other data? Since I'm running an eCommerce site this statement makes me nervous. Can you explain please?

    BACKUP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE INSTALLING! This update includes a new database table, you should not lose any data to make sure to backup your database just in case.

    There should be no issues, however it is always best practice to backup your database before installing new software.

    In cases like 6.0, where we're going to create a new database table, we make sure end users are aware of the change and have the opportunity to backup their data before running the upgrade.

    To my knowledge we we have never had a data loss during an upgrade.
