Discount Ninja version 3 was released a while ago. Version 3 is a brand new product, re-built from scratch to incorporate all the feedback we received since version 1. 

It has a great set of new features and promotion types that are designed to improve conversion and average order value. 

Version 1, launched in 2017, will be phased out. If you are currently using Discount Ninja version 1 you will automatically be migrated to version 3 on January 31st 2020.

How can I check if I'm using version 1?

Version 1 includes the following footer at the bottom of the app:

How does this affect me?

Version 1 will no longer continue to operate after January 31st 2020.
In this briefing we're providing you all the information necessary for you to decide if you want to continue to use Discount Ninja. If you prefer not to continue, you can simply uninstall the app. If you decide to continue to boost your sales with Discount Ninja, you'll need to request a migration and set up your promotions in the new Discount Ninja app.

Will I need to pay more?

No. As a thank you for being a long time user, your price will remain the same (i.e. $14.95/month for Premium version 1 users).
Note that version 3 is priced differently compared to version 1 though. You can see the available subscription plans here: https://apps.shopify.com/discount-url.
If you decide to upgrade to Silver or Gold you'll get a 40% (!) discount on the retail price of the subscription plan.

If you're a Premium version 1 user you get access to the Bronze plan ($29/ month value). If you're using the free version of version 1, you'll get access to the free plan.

Are all the version 1 features included in version 3?
