From the very first release of WC Serial Numbers, we have got numerous positive feedback from our customers. We have gone through several updates as well. But this time our plugin has made a major release with significant changes. This new version 1.2.0 introduces many great features that will blow your mind at first glance. Grab a seat and get ready to discover all the latest features that are injected into WC Serial Numbers.
WC Serial Numbers major updates come up with some weighty features for you guys so that you can use the plugin more effortlessly. We have tried our level best to improve this plugin from all aspects of serial numbers usability.
For the old version, we used to import serial numbers in CSV format only. A sample file in CSV format is given as an example so that you can get the pictures as a whole and thus serial keys can be synced with the product ID. WC Serial Numbers major Updates introduce a customer name field on the CSV file.
We haven’t made any changes to import keys in CSV format. But we have introduced another importer which is completely new and trouble-free. Now you can import serial keys in TXT format. A sample file is given on the import page so that you can maintain the procedure without any hassle.
Considering the old version; whenever you needed to export product data, you had to export all of the products. Although it was one click outcome, it didn’t provide you with distinctive export options. But in our new version of the WC Serial Numbers plugin, We gave you the opportunity to export your data in the following method-
- Product – Export your product just by putting the name of the product. The name will appear in the dropdown list.
- Status – We give you the option to deal with products with different statuses like available, sold, expired, canceled, refunded, failed, and inactive. You can choose a product with any of these statuses and can export it as per your need.
- Export by Order ID – When an order is placed, it automatically creates an ID against the order. Here we have added an option to export your data by simply providing an order ID. You can add more than one product ID for your exportation separating them by commas.
- A Gateway to Choose Fields – Don’t need all of the fields to export? Like you want to export only the product ID and the serial number. This option gives you a window to look for and choose your desired fields as per your need.
