Get 10% off a WP Rocket licence!

As many of you know, caching is a sensitive topic when running a multi-currency, multi-price, or in any way highly dynamic e-commerce. That’s why we worked with the WP Rocket Team to add support for all the Aelia plugins in WP Rocket, while maintaining the top performance that their product provides.

As of version 2.8, WP Rocket supports all our plugins, out of the box, and it’s our recommended commercial caching plugin.

The best news is that now you can get 20% off the price of a WP Rocket licence by using coupon code <coupon expired>. Simply go to, add the licence to your basket, and enter the coupon code at checkout. You will get the best caching plugin on the market, at an even greater price!

Update – June 2017

The original coupon  is now expired. You can now use coupon code aeliacs-10 to get 10% off your WP Rocket licence. 🙂

This is a fantastic news, as it means that it will be possible to produce advanced reports, with a few clicks, and have a complete overview of how your shop is performing. Make sure that you have a look at the latest version of Advanced WooCommerce Reporting, you can find it on CodeCanyon.

It’s great to see more developers join our efforts to make WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads fully support multi-currency scenarios. We would like to thank Proword (the plugin’s authors), for recognising the importance and relevance of multi-currency shops, and for the work they’ve done in supporting merchants who run these shops. Thanks to them, tracking the performance of worldwide sales has become easier than ever!
