Pushover for WooCommerce integrates WooCommerce with the Pushover notifications app for Android and iOS.
Just followed the guide and even though the pushover website is ugly, it is fully functional. I would like to customize the logo of the push notification which doesn't seem to be working, but other than that, awesome plugin.
Free trial for 5 days, $5 for lifetime :)
best notification plugin for woocommerce
Of course I think it's 5 stars!
It sends me notifications, but always more than one. Sometimes the subsequent notification is a few hours after the sale, sometimes it's a few days after. That doesn't work for me because I'm never certain whether a 'sold order' notification was real or not. But I found a better solution--for me at any rate.
I spoke with the folks at Pushover.net because I couldn't get much help from this plugin's author. The Pushover folks told me that if you go to the WooCommerce Settings page and select the 'Emails' -> 'New Order' tab, you can add 'Your-Pushover-User-Key@api.pushover.net' to the New Order Email 'Recipients' box. This way, WooCommerce will send an email directly to Pushover (after a new order comes in) and Pushover will set off your Pushover notification app on your phone. This is done 'Without Any Additional Plugin At All.' You can find the instructions at https://pushover.net/faq#technical-email.
I installed this after reading about it in the woothemes 13 nifty, free WooCommerce extensions you might not know about…
Now I guess technically this plugin is "free", but if you actually want to use it to receive notifications using the app on your phone "pushover" you have to pay for.
Although you do get a 5 day free trial, and the plugin did work when I tested it, it is not free to be able to actually use it.
This plugin does everything I need and works well.
I would have given it 5 Stars, but it only comes with 5 notification types. 4 of which a digital commerce site has zero use for. Would be nice for new registrations, ratings, comments, etc. But for now I'll just have it for the new orders. (Running in Catch-Box Pro Theme and integraded to Galaxy S3. Painless to set up.
