WooCommerce MailChimp will soon surpass the 3,500 download mark after just under 3 months on the WordPress Plugin Repository. The response has been incredible, interest has been steadily gaining and many users have provided very constructive feedback, comments and suggestions. As such, I felt an update was in order to make you aware of what’s coming for WooCommerce MailChimp.
We are currently working on version 1.2 of the plugin which will include the following requested features to name a few:
- New setting to control whether or not the double opt-in checkbox is checked/unchecked by default on the checkout page.
- Small modification to append to MailChimp interest groups for existing users so that group settings are not lost for users who were already subscribed.
- Preparations for i18n (Internationalization) support. Several users have already asked and offered to translate the plugin into other languages. We had always planned on that, but now are making that a reality.
We have setup a public Trello board where you can see what’s next on our radar, vote on features and see the status of enhancements, bug fixes, etc.
WooCommerce MailChimp Pro
We are planning a paid/pro version of this plugin (coming soon) which will include advanced features for more fine-grained control over the integration with MailChimp and more “power user” features. This will allow us more time to dedicate to making this the best possible plugin to integrate WooCommerce and MailChimp, while also allowing us to feed our families. 🙂
While pricing has not yet been announced, there will be license options based on the number of sites you wish to install the plugin on. Stay tuned for further details.
What about the free version?
Don’t worry! There will always be a free version on the WordPress Plugin Repository which will include the current functionality plus some enhancements but support will happen as we can get to it.
That’s all for now!
Please subscribe to our Trello board and stay tuned for version 1.2 release and the upcoming Pro version.
Thank you so much for your support and feedback. The response to the plugin has been truly amazing!
