New Possibilities of WordPress Integration: WooCommerce Plugin
Good news for e-commerce, namely online merchants using WordPress! We are joined by one of the most popular e-commerce solutions - WooCommerce. The plugin helps customize and launch an online store or marketplace on WordPress in a matter of minutes, and then effectively manage it: from setting the available shipping and payment options to tracking orders and collecting statistics.
Until now, by connecting WordPress to Notify.Events, you could make it easier to receive notifications about certain events on your website: post status changes, new comments, registration and login of users, sent emails. Also, contact form notifications through the following plugins were already supported: Contact Form 7, WPForms, and Ninja Forms. Integration with WooCommerce expands the list of events that you can track:
- New Order;
- Order Status Change.
- Low Stock;
- Out Of Stock;
- On Backorder.
Improve the quality of customer service and make communication more effective. Choose from 30+ instant messengers to receive real-time notifications or get alerts via SMS or voice calls to your phone. Distribute them among your team members. Setting up is quick and easy. You don't have to be a developer to figure it out. Just follow the instructions.
New Recipient: Twilio (SMS / Voice)
Twilio is a powerful cloud platform that combines a variety of communication options - SMS, voice and video calls, chatbots, and more. In this way, it allows businesses to build and strengthen interaction with customers at all levels. For developers, there is an opportunity to build their own solutions through Twilio’s APIs.
Now there is one more way for Notify.Events users to receive notifications in the form of SMS and voice calls. Just create a Twilio integration with your account SID, authorization token, and phone number which SMS / calls are to be sent from. Then add the source to your channel (s).
New Recipient: IRC
Internet Relay Chat, or simply IRC, extensions allow users to connect to the server under their nickname and join channels (chats), both group and private, to exchange text messages and files in real time.
The new integration makes it possible to redirect messages from the supported services to IRC channels.
Email Parsing Improvements
This month, we’ve also worked on improving the appearance of emails forwarded to instant messengers. For example, to Telegram or Viber. To be more precise:
- We've added a subject line and a sender. Now you will immediately see who is writing to you and why.
- Some messages previously could contain incomprehensible sets of letters and numbers. We’ve fixed the bug, making such messages look much nicer. Check it out yourself!
That's a wrap for now! Read the new Release Notes next month and stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for other Notify.Events news and updates. If you have any questions or suggestions for new integrations, write to us at email@example.com. And remember that you can get 10,000+ bonus points to your account if share your experience of using the service.
