Abandoned Carts Alerts Pro
Not happy at all! - Avoid this module - Does not support APC Cache or compilations - I will be seeking a refund.

BEWARE. This is poorly written code. The only thing that works flawlessly in this suite is the licensing. The rest is infuriating... took forever to figure out that 1) this module has a lot of hiccups and 2) store performance has been so negatively impacted that I didn't initially believe it would be due to a plugin. ... holy cow, the AITOC stuff alone will bring your store's performance down to something that the search engines outright reject.

WARNING: This plugin seems benign enough and has a valiant purpose; however, beware : it doesn't support APC and does not support compilation (get ready for the debug session of your life). And for those of your that don't use APC or Compilation (which I've finally had to turn off) you're store will suffer: your store will be bogged down to a crawl... so much that customers will just give up. Best thing to do is to avoid this at all costs. For actual stats, visit : http://www.allamericanhats.com/docs/aitoc_stats.pdf

Purchased this module about a month ago. Install was very easy and encountered no problems what so ever following the user manual. If you are having problems installing this module, you shouldn't be working with Magento. It's as basic as it gets. The only problem I had was finding the code that was generating the thumbnails in the email. Contacted support and they replied very quick pointing to exact file I needed to modify. Highly recommend them.

i'm so furios on your installation manual that I need to come back to say how dissapointed i'm by this.
even on your website you've got this options at FAQs
I have bought Professional Installation Services along with extensions. What are my next steps to get it installed?
I have bought Professional Installation Services along with extensions. When can I get the extension installed?
I can’t install an extension, what do I do?
It is not possible to install the extension under the following conditions:
The extension is being installed on a local host, which does not have internet access;
The extension version downloaded from our website is not compatible with the Magento version you are using;
Firewall blocks queries to our server;
NAT or proxy through which queries go to our server was blocked because of too many requests in a short period of time.
If one of these conditions apply, please eliminate them and proceed with the installation. If none apply, please buy a Professional Installation service.
I think this clear shows that you want to be paid so youcan install it. I want to install not you, so you need to make a proper next, next next installation manual

This extension is fantastic, it has paid for itself many times over in saved carts. My only qualm is that there are only 3 options for the coupon. I wish they'd allow you to set a coupon template to pull from instead of the limited options given from the cart. However, for $79 this plugin is very much worth the price.

Does this work with the standard one-page checkout (not One-Page Checkout Booster)?

Playing around with the extension, I thought maybe I can suggest an improvement for the next version:
It will be great to add a feature to allow exceptions for the automatic coupon code that is being generated by the extension. For example, we do sell Gift Certificates on the website and would not like for the customers to be allowed to take the 10% off (amount of the coupon in our example) for this particular item. I think this will be desirabel for any website that offers a GC for sale on their Magento site.
Great extension, though.

OK. Here it is. Bought the extension on Friday. Read the installation instructions carefully. Backed up my site on Sunday. Uploaded the files, following the instructions and installed the extesnsion on a very busy, live site on Sunday without a hitch (Not recommended, but I did not have any choice).
My Magento site is new (Launched on November 1st, switched from Virtuemart after 5 years) so, I only had around $3500.00 worth of abandoned shopping carts on my Magento site.
Sent my first emails to customers with abandoned carts around 3:00 PM and when checked again around midnite on the same day, I have recovered over $500.00 from those customers already.
Highly recommended for the busy websites with a lot of new sign-ups or return customers.
Technical Support: I have not try the support yet, because I didn't need to, and I hope it will be as good as the extension itself, when I contact them.
Highly Recommended. I will definitely purchase other extensions from them.
Keep up the good work.
