This way, you can access all the latest Follow-Up email shortcodes and create the perfect emails.
2. YayPricing 2.1 makes your promotion campaign more eye-catching
Pricing is one of the most crucial aspects of any business. However, with the current market competition, it is not just about setting the right price, but also making it eye-catching and attractive to potential customers.
YayPricing comes in to help businesses create and manage pricing tables on their website. And now, with the release of YayPricing 2.1, the plugin has become even more powerful and user-friendly.
Color picker for choosing pricing table color
YayPricing 2.1 now includes a color picker feature that allows you to choose the perfect color for your pricing and discount table. With this new feature, you can select from a variety of colors to make your pricing tables stand out.
Say goodbye to boring tables and hello to tables that match your brand!
Media library on rich text editor
Now, every text editor in YayPricing has a media library on the rich text editor. You can add images and videos, and even formatting features like bullet points, quotes, and hyperlinks to make your messages extra appealing.
Just take a look at the product page below, where you can add the cutest beanie item image to illustrate your Buy X Get Y discount offer.
It’s so easy and delightful to use, you’ll never want to go back to the plain old text again!

Thanks to YayCurrency, your customers already have a multi-currency switcher widget above the pricing section on the product page, but don’t you want to go above and beyond to enhance their experience?
An optimization method is to put clear instructions to explain how the currency switcher works. So, whether your customers choose a specific currency or it’s automatically detected, they can rest assured that the price displayed will be in their chosen currency.

2. YaySwatches 1.6.1 improves UX by sending more communicative message
We have added an alert displayed with variant swatches that do not exist. Not all variations created by the combination of two or more attributes exist.

Dropdown to filter orders based on the currency.
A dropdown filter now makes it easy for you to view orders based on currency. To get the data you need, simply go to WooCommerce Analytics > Order and you’ll have access to all the order information that matters to you – like revenue, net sale, order value, and average items per product.
