Support » Plugin: Simple Giveaways » What happens to subscribers at end of giveaway

  • Once again, thanks for a great plug-in.

    I’ve started my first giveaway that ends on November 8.

    However, I am uncertain what happens after a winner is selected. I am assuming the plug-in will notify the winner and myself.

    Will the list of email subscribers still remain in my WP database after the giveaway is over?

    When I start a new giveaway after November 8, are we starting from scratch with a new email subscriber list or do existing subscribers automatically get an entry?

    If no one responds, I guess I will find out on November 8 🙂

    Hi @bjrnet21, once a winner is selected and you click to notify them, the winner will be notified with the email you have for that giveaway (it can be edited on the giveaway edit page).

    Others won’t be notified (there is a premium feature non-winner email that can be used for that)

    Just be sure that you have your site configured to send emails (I guess you u have that already :D). I might add a different email as a free feature to notify that the giveaway has ended.

    Everything is left in the database and you can see them under Giveaways > Subscribers.

    For a new giveaway, they will have to enter again since that is viewed as a new entry. I do plan to add features such as automatically entering them and even refactor the whole relationship between subscribers and giveaways but that will require a major refactoring and rebuilding. So that will wait before other planned features are developed 🙂
