    Woocommerce plugins from a third party

    Hello there. I am new here so hello everyone!

    I have a WordPress website with woocommerce installed. I want to purchase some plugins and I came across this website when searching Google. They say you can have access to all plugins for a low monthly fee ($17.99) per month, which would save me a lot of money as I want to buy a host of extensions from the woo commerce site. I just need to know, has anyone come across this business before or anything similar where you pay a monthly subscription and get access to a suite of themes and plugins? is it genuine and safe?

    I am looking at a website called EFFECTIO. https://www.effectio.org/

    Thank you

    J.

    EffectIO is not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with WooCommerce or Automattic INC.
    Cant go wrong then!

    Thanks Fov. Only issue I can think of is if a plugin gets updated, I'd probably have to wait till EFFECTIO update their end.

    Regards

    I think you may have missed some sarcasm in Nick's reply.

    There doesn't seem to be any obvious information about the legal entity behind EffectIO, or a physical address for them on their website and the effectio.org domain has whois privacy protection on it, so personally I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them

    Wow that went right over my head ! it's been a long day... Ok thank you. Perhaps I should steer clear then. I think the term "You get what you pay for" comes to mind.

    I recommend buying the plugin on a loyal site. Because there may be updates and in these sites you comment will take longer to receive such an update.

    Hey guys, I found this thread this morning, I was in the same doubt. But I take a leap of faith. I bought the woocommerce bookings plugin from effectio.org, for 29usd instead of 249usd (yes the difference is huge). The import of the plugin to wordpress works, and I received by mail the invoice and the api key, and the link to download the zip. I am going to set all this stuff up asap.
    P.S. do I need to introduce myself somewhere?

    Cheers

    SCAM

    Hello,

    I tested the site effectio.org, despite warnings.
    This site effectio.org which offers plugins at shattering prices is fraudulent.

    After creating an account on their site for the purchase of a plugin, the entire transaction went smoothly, until the confirmation of my order, confirmed by sending an e-mail.
    This e-mail contains a link that allows me, in principle, to download the plugin in my online personal space. But there, no trace of the command, any more than the download link.
    I was able to open a "ticket" to report the problem. Two different interlocutors answered me during 3 days, sending me links that should have allowed me to download the plugin, which I never finally had.
    From the moment the amount was taken from my account, they did not even respond to my requests.

    To proscribe definitively.

    I think it is only worth buying plugins either from the creator's website or Envato.
    That way you know you are getting the most up-to-date and safest version.
    If you are running a webshop you should not be trying to cut costs like this as an issue can potentially cause huge problems for you and losses.

    DanielN, you are absolutely right.
    Including during the development phase of a project, where we can be tempted to test a plugin at a lower cost.
    You have to buy the plugins only on the official sites or recommended by professionals, the rest is scam.
