This worked at first and I was very impressed, okay I did get an occasional error, Then I took it out of testing and went live a customer tried to pay at 11pm and my website encountered a fatal error. My host investigated and told me it was this plugin that caused the fatal error. Once it was deactivated the site came back online. During this I lost all access to my WooCommerce plugin. My host were very quick to blame this plugin. Since leaving a not so great review, @Kedament was extremely helpful in aiding me to get everything right. Very quick and very helpful. They are just testing this plug in with the PHP 8 which they have said isn’t clear on the plug-in page. At first I was quite annoyed however the helpfulness of @kedament has reassured me and I will reactivate the plug in once they have confirmed capability with version 8.
