Abandoned cart recovery with Recapture for Easy Digital Downloads

Over the last few months, we’ve been using Recapture to recover abandoned carts on our own Easy Digital Downloads-powered stores. We switched to Recapture due to their tight integration with EDD and several unique, compelling features. The results have been quite positive, so we can now recommend them as the top solution for abandoned cart recovery for any Easy Digital Downloads store.

Introducing new Easy Digital Downloads pricing options

Today we are excited to introduce a more comprehensive set of purchase options for Easy Digital Downloads. These new options complement our All Access Pass and include three new “Pass” options that allow you to purchase access to collections of extensions with a single purchase.

Retiring the old support forums

Eighteen months ago, the team here at Easy Digital Downloads started the process of migrating our support system from an open forum to using Help Scout to manage our interactions with users and customers. So far it’s been a tremendous improvement that has helped us to provide top-notch support at scale. The goal of migrating from an open forum to this email-based support channel was to be able to manage support threads easier, get better reporting to where we needed improvement, and offer a more personal experience. The migration is complete and now it is time to say good bye to the forums.
