OCMOD and VQMOD
If you sell digital items (downloadable items) on your OpenCart store, you know that most of the important thing in such business is to keep clients informed and updated about their purchased digital items. (New versions, upgrades, bug fixes or anything)
By default in Opencart you sell a digital download , then user gets an email about the purchase he made and a download notification informing, that he can download this item.
Looks like it is enough.... But... Who of us do not like to be treated good :)? Who of us do not like to feel a special and unique customer :)? Yes, the answer is We all do...
And this is the extension that will help your customers feel that way. It will allow you to ad a personal touch to each of your clients who purchase your items.
From now as admin, you can notify your customers about downloadable item updates with a few mouse clicks, simply go to edit downloadable item in Downloads section and fill the details for each item.
Select the store you want the notifications to be sent from (if you run in multi store). Select the products (autocomplete) the downloadable item is assigned (it can be also not assigned it is up to you)
Add a subject with custom variables. The list of variables you can use are these: %first_name% - ads customers first name into email, %last_name% - ads last name of the customer, %store_name% ads the name of the store you selected the email to be sent from, %mask% - the downloadable item mask and %download_name% will insert the downloadable item name.
So fill the subject, create a custom message, check Notify Customer and simply save the page.
All customers who have purchased this item will get a nice e-mail message notification about everything you want them to know :)
It can be up sale promotion or it can be a message letting them now, that the downloadable item was changed and they can download the upgrade. So, keeping the long story short, this is limitless customer notification about the products they have purchased.
Once you get back to the same downloadable item edit page, all fields will be filled with the last options you selected and filled.
This is a must to have extension for the website owners who wants to create more personal relation with their customers.
PS: This extension can be easily combined with Digital Items Expire extension.
