As powerful as Easy Digital Downloads might be out of the box… it does need TwistPress EDD Toolbox plugin to reach its full potential. We call it Toolbox as with time we’ll keep adding more and more features to the plugin.
Upgrade Encouragement Widget, Block, Shortcode
Show your clients, they can upgrade their products. To get information about possible upgrade paths, users normally need to navigate to their licenses view and from there to ‘view license’. Not anymore. It should be clearly visible and available instantly so that your clients don’t have to wonder. Right now you have a possibility to show upgrade options with a Widget, Shortcode, Gutenberg block. That’s perfect for more passive encouragement just to display upgrade options in various contexts.
Widget comes with a number of settings. You can define its title, add a custom message, select which product to show upgrade options to, limit the options and more. Gutenberg block and Shortcode also comes with its own set of configuration options / parameters so you can customize it to your liking and to fit your business best.
Upgrade Encouragement Popup
Widgets, Gutenberg block and even a Shortcode, it’s all rather ‘static’ content that’s meant to blend with the site. A popup is more prominent and definitely can’t be missed. Popup provides the same upgrade information and comes with similar configuration options. There’s one more difference that’s perhaps the most important.
You can decide to show the popup on a schedule. Decide how many days after the purchase the popup should be shown to your clients. How many times should it be shown. You can add many variables to a single popup so that it shows 7, 14, 30 or 180 days after purchase informing clients about upgrade options for specific products in your offer.
