Product selection


Select product from 

This allows you to select product for the popup and show it as sales.

Normally this should have only one option that is to get product from the orders places on your site. But if you don’t have orders on regular basis then you can use other option to show virtual sales for you. This will increase your conversion rate.

At present we have 3 product selection options:

Order Placed: This is the only one that will show the original purchased product from your site in the popup, Remaining other option will create virtual (or Fake) sales popup message.

In this you have option to set the Order status Say you want even the pending orders to be shown as sales or, you only want to show the completed orders as sales that can be done from this.

Recently Viewed products: This will show the virtual sales order

This will select the product from the visitors recently viewed product history. and It will create virtual order from that.

To make the virtual order you need to provide the list of virtual names and virtual address

Show selected products: You can select product your self and then using this product a virtual order will be created and shown in the popup.

Select product from Categories: You can select categories and the product from those categories will be used to generate virtual orders


Virtual name: You can enter multiple names with each name on one line, plugin will select one name randomly to create order. This is your {first_name}

Virtual location: You can set {city}, {state}, {country} from this. you have to enter one location on one line, and each city, state, country separated with coma.  The sequence is important first city, then state and then country.

E.g: New York City, New York, U.S

How much old order should be shown

You can set this timing as Weeks, Days, or Hours

When you are showing original orders (that is Select product: Order placed) then this timing will be used to extract older orders.

Say you have set the values to 1 Day, the popup will show orders placed in last one day.

If you are showing virtual orders then it will create virtual time that will be any random time in last 1 day
