I had changed the menu on my site and inadvertently deleted the Easy Digital Download payment pages. I asked EDD support for help and they promptly resolved my problem with precision and courtesy. Heartfelt thanks to EDD support
جولائی 16, 2024
I swapped one of my clients to EDD after many years with another plugin. Really pleased with the support, documentation and structure of the plugin. Very easy to work with, easy to customise and theme.
جون 15, 2024
I have been using EDD for more than 5 years for selling digital products. This is one of the best plugin with lots of flexibility to customize an online digital store. Apart from the features, what makes it best is the support that I get from their team whenever I face any issues. Mihai is knowledgeable and always helpful when I run into issues or have a question.
جون 4, 2024
I have used EDD for many years with a lot of satisfaction. It is flexible and could grow with me as I needed more features, but the basic shop already works very well and a lot of add-ons are available to make it work the way I wanted it to. Maybe even just as important as a good working plug-in is the amazing tech support. I had an issue with a recurring payment and support helped me out, really going beyond what I could ask them to do to solve it. A great product and a great service. If you run a webshop, don’t look further than this piece of excellent software.
مئی 8, 2024
They charge you fees even if you pay them, despite saying otherwise. Took off an additional star because they don’t care about privacy mentioned in another review. Their response is not honest in my view. This used to be a better plugin.
