Easy Digital Downloads Slack

At Easy Digital Downloads, we use Slack all day, every day. Slack is an incredibly powerful and easy to use real time chat application and we’re huge fans. This integration between Easy Digital Downloads and Slack makes it incredibly simple for your online store and your team’s communication tool to work together.

Features

An unlimited number of notifications from your EDD store can be configured and sent into your Slack team’s channels. Each notification can have its own defined trigger, message content, icon, dynamic values and more. Default triggers include:

Interactive buttons

An integration with Slack and your digital store doesn’t have to be one direction only. It is also now possible to send commands from Slack back to your EDD site! With interactive buttons, notifications sent to your Slack channel will include an option for you to take action immediately from Slack without having to login to your site.

Slash Commands

Slack comes with a lot of amazing features and this integration with Easy Digital Downloads takes advantage of more than a few. One unique and powerful feature is Slash Commands. Slash Commands in Slack allow for a command to be entered and a custom response to be returned.

The EDD Slack extension currently supports the following Slash Commands:

  • /edd help – returns a list of all available commands and their parameters.
  • /edd sales {period} – returns a sales summary for the given period (today, yesterday, this_month, last_month, etc.)

These commands and the many more which are coming in future updates will allow useful data to be instantly retrieved right within Slack.

Note: Interactive buttons and Slash Commands require that your site have SSL enabled.
