Reminder plugin

The "Reminder" plugin is a great way to increase your sales by sending email notifications to customers when they abandoned their cart before finishing the checkout or their order before finishing the payment.

  • It has options to handle only unpaid orders, or only carts, or both.
  • You can also define the periods to wait before sending the notification, and the maximum period so that old carts/orders won't be taken into account.
  • You can also notify customers for their wishlists.
  • The plugin is compatible with the email system of HikaShop. So you'll be able to modify the email notifications via the menu System>Emails of HikaShop Business.
  • The plugin uses the cron system of HikaShop so that the email sending process won't slow down the pages of your website.
  • Multilingual support and translations override support

1.3.4 on the 23rd of February 2024

  • We added some check to make sure that carts are linked to actual users before trying to generate the notification email, in order to avoid needless warnings on PHP 8.

1.3.3 on the 21st of December 2023

  • We've improved the compatibility of the plugin with PHP 8.2

1.3.2 on the 24th of April 2023

  • We've improved the compatibility with old versions of HikaShop for the cart reminder plugin.

1.3.1 on the 28th of February 2023

  • The flag in the carts / orders is now set after the email is generated but before it is sent. Before it was set before the email was generated. This would lead the plugin to not send the reminder email if there was something blocking the generation of the email, even once. So i'ts now more resilient to errors during the email generation process.
  • The plugin now supports the Joomla update mechanism.

1.3.0 on the 8th of September 2022

  • We improved the reminder plugin so that for cart reminders the plugin takes into account the last modification date of orders (and not only the creation date) and to also use the "cart waiting period" as a buffer so that if an order was created/modified for that user less than that period of time (1 day by default) before the last cart modification we also don't send a reminder.
  • We removed a useless / in the URL of some images of some of the images in the emails sent by the plugin.
  • Support for PHP 8 added. PHP 8 could generate errors during calculations if there were too many decimals on the numbers when generating the emails sent by the plugin.
