Remind Subscribers

You can now remind subscribers X days before the Giveaway ends. Set the reminder email under Giveaways > Settings > Emails that will be used when reminding your subscribers.

If you want to remind your subscribers on a particular giveaway, you need to set how much days before the giveaway ends you will send a reminder email.

Winning Ticket Type

This winning ticket type is a giveaway type which you could see in some marketing efforts by big companies.

When using such type, you could enter a prize and all codes that, if entered, will win that prize.

For example, some companies assigned numbers or codes to their bottles. When you bought the bottle, you could enter the code on their site and if you entered a winning code, you would win a prize.

If someone wins, they will be shown the instructions on how to get the prize. If they did not win, they will be presented with an error message that they have not won and they can enter another prize there.

Prizes can be assigned Manually

If you have entered prizes before and you have not checked to assign prizes automatically (on premium), winners would not know which prize they had won. Now, even with the free version, you can assign prizes to winners.

When you click on Award Prizes Manually, you will get a multiple dropdown option to choose from.

eCommerce Integrations

WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads integrations are available on Business Plan. For now, with those integrations you will get a “Product Purchased” action for extra entries.

User will be able to get more entries if he/she has bought the product assigned to that action. Here is an example with the WooCommerce action.

Once clicked, you can choose a product you want this action to be about.

Once you have configured it and saved it, the subscriber will see it on the front of the giveaway.

Subscribers will have to enter their Order ID and the Order billing email so we can sure they are not cheating. If we find those orders have the correct billing email and that product in there, they will be awarded the entries you’ve set.

Such actions have also the product box there so if they have not bought it, they will be, on click, redirected to the product and thus increase your conversions.


I am mostly excited on improving the eCommerce solutions so you can increase your sales with our Simple Giveaways. A lot more is planned for future releases so stay tuned to our blog.
