Q: Does this extension provide premium features of YayMail Pro?

A: This YayMail extension supports WooCommerce Subscriptions and Enhancer for WooCommerce Subscriptions. It allows you to add those two plugins’ emails to the email builder and customize them. That being said, it is not the YayMail Pro version, which supports other aspects such as shipment tracking info, order status, custom fields, advanced checkout fields, multi-language functionality, and so on.

Q: Will I receive automatic updates for this extension?

Yes. Automatic updates notifications will be delivered to you through standard WordPress methods once you connect your site to WooCommerce.com account.

Q: Will my customized email templates break if I don’t renew my subscription?

A: Absolutely not. Your email template design will be preserved even if you choose not to renew your license. You just no longer get the latest updates and support from us.
