Blacklister for WooCommerce allows your shop to block orders from specific visitors, based on custom blacklisting criteria.
This product is the premium version of the original Blacklister plugin developed by Aelia. It includes all the features of the premium plugin, and it’s fully covered by our top class support service. The free version of the plugin is still available, and can be downloaded by clicking on the following link: aelia-woocommerce-blacklister.zip (free version).
What are the differences between the premium and the free Blacklister?
The premium and the free Blacklister include the same set of features. There are two main differences between the two versions:
- The premium version of the Blacklister includes access to our support service. This will allow you to contact us through our contact form, or our support portal, and receive a quick answer to any question you might have. The free version doesn’t include support.
- Premium customers will get priority updates. We will release updates for the plugin for the premium version first, and for the free version at a later stage. We still plan to maintain the free version for several months at least, although it might be updated less frequently.
How it works
The plugin adds a new menu in WooCommerce backend, where you can specify a list of email addresses or IP addresses that will be blacklisted. When a visitor will try to place an order using one of the blacklisted email or IP addresses, the checkout will be interrupted and the visitor will be notified of the reason why the operation was blocked.
