Not what i expected
By , for WP 4.3.1

I thought I could also easily customize all the buy now buttons on my page, turns out I can't. So I can't use this plugin.

You will lose these w most backup Plugins
By , for WP 4.3.1

I was very surprised that these buttons don't get included in the WP DB backup we use! We lost our Max Buttons that we had used in more than 500 blog posts when we did a recovery after a crash!

I was not expecting this. I suspect, we have to manually select a table that these are stored and make sure the table in included in the backup!

Another frustrating part or using MaxButtons is that we could never get the Checkbox to work! It never appears on the page, but it stops the submit! So, we had to remove the CheckBox now which will expose us to spam.

Final frustration was the email were not going through and the plugin generates a very generic error which is void of any intelligence and information. It just says something like email did not go through, try again or contact by another method!

I had to research the exact error text online only to find out that it was the WRONG sender which our ISP was blocking! We had to install yet another plugin to fix the SMTP error which this MaxButton should have reported on in the 1st place.
God know how many leads we have lost because of this plugin!

Not working on wp 4.3
By , for WP 4.3

I have used Maxbuttons for a while but it is now causing a fatal error that causes my site to disappear apart from the header. Fried deleting MB and reinstalling but same problem. No answer yet on WP forums.

Does not support Javascript
By , for WP 4.2.4

I paid for the 'pro' version of this plugin, only to find that it does not support Javascript in the URL field for what to do when a button gets clicked.

Until this plugin is updated to modern realities (ie widespread use of Javascript), it's fairly useless. Lots of checkout buttons (eg a Submit Order button) use Javascript to submit/execute.

MaxButton is useless for creating such buttons.

Buttons disappear after update
By , for WP 4.2.2

the plugin is sadly amazing and so much hard work had been done to make it as perfect as possible. Too good to be true until until the almighty updates descend from up above, then all the amazing advanced buttons that you work hard for DISAPPEAR. Which tells any human with a functional brain DO NOT INSTALL THIS PLUGIN BECAUSE MEASRY WILL VISIT YOU AS SOON AS AN UPDATE COMES ALONG.

Don't trust these people!
By , for WP 4.2.1

I paid for the "Pro" version of this a few years ago. It was supposed to be a one-time purchase and nothing was said about any "expiration date."

Now I find that my copy of the plug-in has been deactivated because my "license has expired."

Honest people don't do business this way. Don't get conned.

just a nightmare !
By ,

used on more than 5 websites without problem on different hosts.

After an update all the buttons disapear from de admin plugin and of course on the website !

Sorry but just a big NIGHTMARE.

Disaster
By , for WP 4.1

What a disaster. I upgraded to Pro, they promised me to send 2 packs, they didn't fulfill their promises. I reminded them, they asked again which packs I want, I answered and nothing. When I mail them now, no reply.

I changed theme, I have a MAxButtons Pro Key, but when i want to put MaxButtons Pro I have to pay again 20 dollars. The MAxButtons Pro isn't worth its money and the support is weak.

Trash.

Nowhere near as good as claimed
By ,

Even found that Pro version is disappointing. Total waste of money.

I had problems, their support took several days but still didn’t resolve issues.

Plugin creates massive code bloat for buttons.

I recommend going elsewhere. I used freebuttons.com (non-WordPress) and there are also many other WP button plugins, eg see here: http://www.evohosting.co.uk/blog/web-development/wordpress-web-development/8-of-the-best-wordpress-button-plugins/

Too time-consuming and not responsive
By , for WP 3.7.1

I found the button generator too complicated. And when I finally got a button ready, it wasn't responsive.
