Ending a product – Give A Tip Plugin? The idea from the start was to have one plugin that is not connected to standard contact plugin. That is why the Give A Tip Plugin was born.
Our last article described problems with some WordPress plugins developed by Begacom IT Business. The company solved the problem with one of them and decided to temporary stop offering the second one, the Contact Me Plugin until it was updated.
The third one, called Give A Tip Plugin was not that lucky. The company decided to stop the development of this plugin and remove it from the product list. Why?
Actually, Give A Tip Plugin is a copy of the Contact Me Plugin so that makes just double work and creates confusions. Why having one plugin as two with different names only? The idea from the start was to have one plugin that is not directly connected to standard contact plugin. That is why the Give A Tip Plugin was born.
Now it is decided to not offer it any more. People will be able to use the other one plugin for contact instead. That should be enough in different contact situations.
Ending the plugin as product is not easy, the CEO said. He also remained optimist:
But we are now giving more room for the original and some new plugins instead. We should see this as an opportunity.
And that is true. Giving up one thing does not mean that everything else also ends. It is important to sacrifice something for something else or new.
So, now when we know this story we must be prepared for future article about new and updated version of Contact Me Plugin. That one will appear to be much better than it is today.
