  • Free version is useless – all you get is the ability to hide the default sale badge. Seriously. That’s it. And strong nudges to go spend $69/year for this trivial plugin.

    Looked at another one of YITH’s plugins. Yup. Total cash grab.

    Could not uninstall quickly enough.

    Hi there,
    we’re sorry read your negative evaluation on this plugin.
    May I ask you which feature you expect in this version of the plugin?

    Fair question. I genuinely hope this helps.

    My expectations for any plugin is that they provide enough features to support an intelligent purchasing decision and that they’re priced fairly. That’s all.

    As a b/e dev, I know WP devs are whale hunters – gimme da cash! I do spend money on plugins, a very significant amount that makes even Wix start to look good. But I’m only one small ecom site and have a budget.

    I choose to support plugins that offer FAIR pricing. Like an upfront one-time purchase fee – or pay as you go support options. I cannot justify spending $69/year in perpetuity to set a couple trivial badge options that are eye candy.

    Next, offer something more that one simple tweakable option/feature in a plugin. I saw the single working feature nested among everything else grayed-out and didn’t even try to play with it – why bother? – I just deleted the plugin.

    Considering most users are going to purchase this to add new badges to products, couldn’t you, at least, allowed the free version to create one new badge? With the free version, you can’t even test that basic functionality.

    The counter argument to “The plugin only changes badges – you don’t need more than one option to see how it works” is: if you want to gateway people into your plugins, entice, woo, cajole them first before you start ripping into their wallets. You have a TON of plugins – would have loved to explore them but, omg, the sticker shock! Clearly I am not your audience.

    Just one potential, now former, customer’s opinion.

    Hi there,
    we appreciate your feedback, but I don’t understand why you write that it’s not possible create new badges.
    We let you do it as described at following post: https://docs.yithemes.com/yith-woocommerce-badge-management/category/free-version-settings/

    For sure the commercial version include many additional functions but we believe that the free version is not useless, on contrary it allows to create different badges for a Shop.

    Anyway we’ll evaluate possible improvements on this version to make it always more interesting.
