Hi! It's a shame to leave a plugin like that lying around (even a free one) without updating it in any way.At least inform on your website that you are no longer maintaining your plugin.Problems encountered: Doesn't pass php8, the usable Woocommerce version is v4.x.x.are you serious? if only for security reasons Bye!
Out of the box and using ONLY the WooCommerce version they ask you to use it works very well. However, the WC version they use is too far out of date and poses a high-risk security issue. The other issue is the need to run a cron to process orders on a 5-minute (or less/more) basis. This means the buyer does not get the download immediately, they have to wait for your website to process the cron to then send the buyer an email with a download link with a random name, which is fine as I assume that is to secure the actual files you have without a direct link to them. Ongoing development, support and forum answers appear to be slow or non-existant. I understand Woocommerce has constant updates that can be hard to keep up with, but it would be better to have a built-in eCommerce function to remove that dependency on WooCommerce, otherwise, keep it up to date with the latest version or at least the newest version possible that is not a security issue when using WooCommerce. The fact it uses an outdated version of WooCommerce is why I would not recommend this product for any purpose. The security risk to your buyers AND you is too high.
Horrible plugin, a pain in the ***
After the installation several menu items have disappeared. It is no longer possible to define delivery times or to create your own product variants. If you want to sell not only photos but also physical products, this is now only possible in an extremely limited way. Then the server becomes extremely slow, because a CRON job has to run constantly for the PlugIn to work. And in Europe the plugin can not be used legally safe, because all DSGVO points are missing. Conclusion: In Europe not applicable, and also otherwise only usable for pure photo pages.
We are so glad we found Symbiostock since it's a perfect fit for us in combination with WooCommerce. Also, we needed the support for one GPS issue, and they helped us very quick and pointed us to the right solution. Just can recommend it to photographers who want to sell their images online. Thanks & best regards
