Do I need a lot of purchases to see Fomo working on my site?

↑ Back to top
Not at all. Fomo will loop through prior orders, as many days in the past as you like, to maintain a live atmosphere, regardless of sale volume.

When will new settings update on my site?

↑ Back to top
Fomo purges the cache and uses new settings every 40 seconds. If more than a minute has passed and you don’t see new settings in effect, it’s possible that your web browser has saved old settings. Refresh your browser cache to see changes immediately.

How does Fomo automatically sync product sales to my WooCommerce store?

↑ Back to top
With every new purchase, WooCommerce communicates key details (first name, city, etc.) to Fomo. And whenever you update the Display threshold or other timing settings, Fomo triggers a fresh import of sales.
