WooCommerce: Attach Me! is a woocommerce plugin that allows Shop Managers to attach any kind of file to your clients’ orders. Attach Images, documents, videos, proofs… no limits!
Furthermore, the Shop Managers can also:
- attach files to products (like manuals, documents, etc.): these files are automatically available to download in the product pages and/or on order details page after the customers have purchased them (and optionally visible only if the order has reached a specific status)! You can also specify an Expiring time (only for order attachments)!
- create automatic email attachments: sent when a specific order status email is sent by WooCommerce
How to automatically update the plugin
To receive automatic updates just install and configure the Envato updater plugin: https://goo.gl/pkJS33 .The official guide that explains how to configure it can be found in the following link: https://envato.com/market-plugin .
Shop Managers will be able to upload one or more files directly from the “edit order” page.
WCAM adds an “Attachment box” for every order where the Shop Manager can add as many files as he wishes! Every attachment can be visible only for specific order statuses!
Thanks to the new Quick management feature, you can now add/delete attachments directly from the orders list page!
PRODUCT AND VARIATION ATTACHMENTS
The shop admin can also attach files to products (directly from their edit pages) that are automatically available to download on the product page and/or on the order details page after an order has been placed.
These attachments can also be available only if the order reaches a specific status(es) or if the current user has specific user roles.
Furthermore, for every order attachment, the shop admin can set an expiring time (specific date or set a time span after the order has been placed during which is possible the download).
Optionally, order attachments can use a masked URL that allows the system to check if the request belongs to an authorized user.
This kind of attachment is useful to attach manuals, pdf, or other media files. Optionally files can be sent automatically via email.
The shop admin now can also use the new Bulk products attachments tools to bulk assign attachments to products (directly selecting them or using categories).
INSTANT CUSTOMER EMAIL NOTIFICATION WITH FILES LINKS AND/OR FILES ATTACHED TO THE EMAIL
Shop admin can notify the customer whenever a file is attached to the order and link it directly in the body message.
Optionally can also send all the uploads directly via email as attachments. Furthermore, you can embed also preset text previously saved!
ORDER EMAIL FILE EMBEDDING
Order attachments can be optionally embedded to Processing, Completed, or Customer Invoice emails!
ORDER ATTACHMENTS DISCLAIMER
Order attachments can optionally be downloaded only if the user has accepted a disclaimer (secure links option must be enabled).
SECURE FILE LINKS
WCAM creates secure download links for every product and order attachments. In this way, only the order owner or who bought the product can access its attachments!
Furthermore, for order attachments, the “Secure download” option can be enabled/disabled as whish.
NOTE: option unavailable for external URLs file attachments
For both product and order attachments, you can set an expiring date or time amount (after the order date) at which the attachment will expire and no longer available to download!
Every customer can download his order attachments simply by opening the “My Account” -> “View Order” page. On this page, the plugin adds
a new area called “Attachments” where he will find all the files attached by the Shop Manager for that order.
AUTOMATIC EMAIL ATTACHMENTS
With the WCAM plugin, you can also create the “automatic email attachments”. Using the special configurator, you can attach the same file the account, new order, processing order, complete order, and invoice emails!
ATTACHMENTS DOWNLAODABLE IN MY ACCOUNT – DOWNLOADS TAB
Optionally order and products attachments can be listed and downlaoded directly in the My Account -> Downloads tab. To do that just enable the special option in the General otpions & text -> My Account – Downloads section.
Are you using the WooCommerce Sequential Order Number Pro? use the following Add-on to display the custom id in the Download table.
CUSTOMIZE ORDER DETAIL PAGE HTML SNIPPET AND OTHER TEXTS
Shop admin can customize the HTML snippet used in the Order Details page by copying the /woocommerce-attach-me/templates/view_order_template.php file to your theme folder/wcam/view_order_template.php
and customize as wished!
Don’t you want to mess with templates or files? No problem! you can customize text directly using the WooCommerce Attach Me! menu option!
Is possible to enable “Image preview” option by which if an attachment image is detected, will be displayed as a thumb. Thumb size is customizable too (by default is used the default WordPress “Settings” -> “Media” -> “Thumb size” option)
Furthermore, previews can be displayed using a lightbox!
CUSTOMER APPROVAL, FEEDBACK AND ADMIN EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS
For every order attachment, the shop manager can enable “customer feedback”, “customer approval” and the selective “required feedback” option. This option will make the feedback field required only if a specific approval value has been selected.
The admin can also enable an option to receive an email notification whenever a user approves/gives feedback to an attachment and to notify the customer whenever a file is attached to the order.
NOTE: Some servers have restrictions preventing wp_email() to send attachments bigger than 5MB. If you are experiencing this kind of problem, you can simply install any SMTP emailer plugin. This kind of plugins will let you use any external email services (like Gmail, Outlook, any SMTP server) to send emails.
NEW If you need a more specific File Approval system, give a try to my new plugin: WooCommerce File Approval
using the special [wcam_last_order_attachments] is now possible to display the last order attachments for the currently logged user!
KEEPS YOUR SERVER CLEAN
On Order deletion, every attachment is deleted too.
Bulk products attachments email description and product attachments description texts are not translatable. Product attachments have to be created for each product translation.
TinyMCE Advanced plugin is incompatible with the WCAM plugin. It prevents the advanced textarea added by WCAM on the order page to properly work.
So if you are using it and you decide to buy the plugin, please disable it to properly use the WCAM plugin.
