It is very simple to switch from the older V1.x versions to the all new 2.0
Starting from Version 1.9.8, you will see a button "Switch to Discount Rules 2.0"
Just clicking this button will help you switch to 2.0.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you have updated Woo Discount Rules to 1.9.8 before proceeding further
- You can switch back any time.
- All your rules, settings in v1.x are preserved and kept as is.
I am a PRO version user (Woo Discount Rules PRO):
The following instructions are for customers who are using the 1.x PRO version
Step 1: Click the "Switch to 2.0 Button"
Step 2: Install the 2.0 PRO Pack
You will see a popup to Download and Install the 2.0 PRO package. Click the "Download and Install" button. This will install the 2.0 PRO package and take you to the 2.0 dashboard.
Since 2.0, you need BOTH Core and Pro (2.0) packages installed and activated.
Why we made this change?
This arrangement is to avoid the confusion in the installation and upgrade process. Many users first install the core free version. Then purchase the PRO version and try to install it over the free version. Since both free and pro packages have same names, wordpress asks them to uninstall free and then install pro. As you can see, this is quite confusing for the end users.
As a result, starting from 2.0, we now have two packs: 1. Core 2. PRO.
I have trouble installing the 2.0: Alternative Method:
Sometimes, the popup might not open and a message might appear. This will occur if your license key is missing or expired.
In this case, please follow the steps below:
- Please go to My Downloads page in our website. (Renew the license if required)
- You will see the Download for Discount Rules 2.0 PRO package. Here is a screenshot https://www.evernote.com/l/AjwBAZbXEzBBmqQ208RU3PUp_wAgy5242Qc
- Please download the PRO package for V2 and install it in your WordPress Dashboard -> Plugins section.
- The Plugins section will now look like this: https://www.evernote.com/l/Ajxw0j6bAJZHZKKawsraA4Ajsjd8cN26bTE
- Activate the Woo Discount Rules 2.0 package (Refer this guide for installation if you have any doubts).
- Go to your WordPress Dashboard -> WooCommerce -> Woo Discount Rules
- Click the "Switch button"
You will see that you will be taken to the V2 dashboard.
Here is a Video Tutorial :
