New Types of Extra Options


Extra options do not happen much. Or rather, types of extra options. After you update the Gridbox on your site, you will find two new types of extra options Text Input and Text Area. Store ➝ Product Options ➝ Type.

By going to the product settings, you can set the price for these two types of fields.

Let's see how it works on the site. It's simple when you fill in the fields, the price changes. What is it for, you may ask. For example, you are selling handmade jewelry with a personal engraving. Or you are creating custom-made branded merchandise for different companies. So adding an engraving or lettering on a T-shirt will be an extra option. The price of this extra option will be automatically added to the order price.

Email Sending Delay


Do you want to know how customers feel about your product and service? It's easy to do with the new Email Sending Delay feature. It's also a great way to ask clients to leave reviews.

How to send an email with a delay? To do this, go to Email Notifications ➝ enable the Email Sending Daily option ➝ set the value and choose the period (hours, days, months, years).

Automated Review Request


In this Gridbox version, a new type of email notification has become available to you — Customer Review. We have also added a new shortcode Order Review. This is a fast and excellent way to get feedback from your customers. Feel free to ask your clients to leave reviews. Real and honest reviews will help new customers trust your brand.

Checkout Page Improvements


The Checkout page in the Gridbox Store App is perfect and works great. What else should be?! We will always find something to make your Gridbox experience even more enjoyable.

Order Editing

On the Checkout page, users have the opportunity to edit their order. At your request, we have added this functionality to make it easier for buyers to navigate the Checkout page. Now all you have to do is click the Edit button.

Entering Promo Code

Possibility to enter a promo code. What's new in this, you may ask. This option has been in the Gridbox Store App since the beginning. That's right, but the promo code could only be entered in the shopping cart. Your customers now have the option to enter a promo code at the end of the Checkout page.

Category List Pagination


Previously, Category List Layout only had a сlassic pagination type. We have expanded the selection and added several types of ajax pagination. We have already done such types of pagination for the Recent Posts plugin, and now we are adding them to the Category List.
