    Why Customer Attributes is not compatible with Special Promotions Pro? why customer data filled with this extension cannot be used in promo rules? this is huge opportunity for every ecommerce store, but right now its not possible to use it. any options to tune those extensions?

    • Ksenia Dobreva Ksenia Dobreva says:

      Hey Tomek,

      thanks for asking, and I’m willing to help you with this concern. In fact, the extensions should be compatible (I don’t know if you’re talking about M1 or M2, but both variants should work fine). Could you please point out the exact moments when you’re experiencing troubles with?

      • Tomek says:

        Hi. I don’t know if you understand me. Both extensions works together. But attributes created with Customer Attributes are not available through Special Promotions Pro – and it is a great opportuninty to give discount and promotions for custom customer attributes. If you have both extensions, why not to make them working together? There is not such bundle on Magento market – where store merchant could give special promotions using customer attributes (example: user filled its customer profile with Customer Attributes (like Adidas shoes, only Pink) > Special Promotions Pro could give him discount for his personalized needs. Please forward it devs. thanks

        • Ksenia Dobreva Ksenia Dobreva says:

          Dear Tomek,

          again, these attributes should be available through Special Promotions Pro.

          Here they are:

          Please let me know if you managed to see the same picture on your store.

          • Tomek says:

            Sorry for confusion. My mistake. I was thinking about Customer Attributes + Amasty Segments (Follow Up extension). and this is a problem – because segments should be built for such purposes. to later use it in follow ups. Any options to add this feature? its really important. Special Promotions Pro are doing great with Customer Attributes – but they work only in the cart. while Segments + Follow up extension works for “offline” customers who are 99.9% of customer base….

            • Ksenia Dobreva Ksenia Dobreva says:

              Dear Tomek,

              thanks for explaining all this and paying attention to the details, feedback like this really helps us improve the products.

              The feature was added to the roadmap and will be implemented in the next update. I’m sorry I can’t provide you with the exact time frames here, but it’s on the list and will be added in the near future.

              Again, thanks for letting us know!

              • Tomek says:

                Thanks for this good news. Looking forward for this release. BTW: you have great Abandoned Carts extension – it lacks one huge feature: exit-intent with Save Cart feature…. it would be really important feature – especially there is only Nosto for Magento with similar feature – but they miss “popup sensivity” and takes 4% from each order.
