Having struggled to find a minimum purchase requirement plugin that fit a very specific need, I stumbled across this plugin.
Skeptical at first, I was able to see literally everything the plugin had options for on Vartech's main website. They had screenshots of EVERY option with well written and VERY detailed explanations for each option.
Still not quite convinced, I emailed their support asking if their plugin could do what I want with my specific requirement.
To my surprise, I was emailed back within almost half an hour with an answer to my question.
Convinced, I bought the plugin and began working with it and stumbled across a bug in one of the options that caused a fatal error. To my dismay, this was the option I so desperately needed.
Emailing the support once again, I was emailed back almost immediately. This time the support gave me his skype address so that we could chat there.
After explaining my problem the support immediately began working on a solution for the bug in the code and had it finished within 10 minutes and emailing me a fixed version.
I was absolutely stunned by the speed and quality of Varktech's customer support and service. Yes the plugin is kind of expensive but they take care of you.
Plugin may be more expensive than what most are used to but Varktech takes care of their customers with speed and quality. A rare trait to find in today's day and age.
I wanted to limit puchases for variable products accross a category - I tried MANY different plugins including the WooCommerce Min/Max (paid) plugin. While I could create a min/max purchase for a variable product - I couldn't limit it accross products in the same category.
The free version is great if you only have ONE category that needs a min/max. I got the PRO version for multiple, different Min/Max settings and it works like a charm.
Needed something that would limit our WooCommerce customers to just 1 item in their cart, but also prevent them from coming back and putting something in their cart again in the future. We have everything set to super paranoid status and, after lots and lots of testing, I believe we finally have it locked down tight.
Incidentally, my boss did some testing on the program and found a small issue, a way someone might be able to cheat if they tried hard enough. I contacted customer service and within minutes I got a response. Mark asked questions about the issue and within about an hour total all said and done he had a Beta version for us to test and try out. So far, so good - the small issue was fixed and we are feeling confident.
I gave 5-stars for delivering what was promised (we tried the FREE and then purchased the PRO version), for giving us value for our investment ($70 seemed like a lot, but now I see it's a real bargain for the service and the quality of the work) - and for excellent, top notch customer service. I wish all extensions/plugins were managed this well!
I needed a plugin that would allow me to divide up shipping methods between several categories of products that also have 2 different minimum purchase requirements. One set of products ship via Fed Ex and the others ship via USPS, both from different locations. Both types of products require different minimums to complete a purchase as well.
I have found that customers don't 'read', thus I until I found this plug-in I couldn't sell both types of products in 1 website. When I tried, it created too many problems resulting in the need to cancel more orders than I was able to accept.
I was about to give up completely, until I finally came across this plugin. I had a few initial problems setting it up, but the tech support is off the charts awesome!!
Now when customers don't meet the minimums, there is a very good message in the cart explaining why. It also computes how much more they need to purchase to meet the requirement. Even better, the plugin totals the shipping costs into one (1) single total if bot types of products are in the cart.
I do need to mention that I found that using a 'table-rate shipping method' works out best if you have similar needs to what I needed to accomplish. I'm using WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro of which I found the support to be good for that as well.
I had an issue with a custom function I had forgotten about. The support called me on Skype a few hours after I created the ticket and we found the problem in no time. It is now working like a charm !
The Pro version saved me. The ability to configure min/max prices per Category is an excellent feature. I spent a lot of time searching the web for this solution, and this plugin seems to be the only solid option. The admin side of things is very straight forward and easy to use.
Also, the support couldn't be better. Very quick to reply and very willing to help resolve any issues.
I had some trouble installing the plugin, I reached out to support via email and they responded immediately, time after time, because I wasn't able to get it to work.
I finally gave up and was going to had the project over to my wed developer.
But Mark emailed me back to check the status. I was very surprised, not many shops will email you back to ensure what you purchased works. Great customer service.
I was able to install the plugin, it was an easy fix. And the product does exactly what I need it to.
The free version does a good job setting and managing purchase levels; however the Pro version does a great job. The customer service and support response on the littlest questions have been fantastic. Would suggest the ability to turn off saving information for lifetime purchases. Thanks again for the great plugin and help!
Those who give this plugin a low rating need to follow up and re-rate now that the plugin has updated. I also had problems with the initial release, but received great support from the developer. Have updated to 1.06 and the grey screen and other bug issues I had are solved. Thanks for the great support of a FREE plugin!
I set the minimum purchase to 15€ in less than 2 minutes.
thank you Vark!
