HISTORY

E2Pdf is the new and highly improved iteration of the Formidable PRO2PDF plugin. Originally designed and coded in 2013 out of a need to print dynamic PDF documents from WordPress forms, PRO2PDF provided the automation necessary for a small insurance broker to produce far more business with the same number of employees.

Today, the E2Pdf plugin and WordPress extension provide the entire WordPress community with a cost free method of creating dynamic PDF documents – without programming or coding – with one simple shortcode. More information can be found at E2Pdf.com

It works pretty well, but unfortunaly can't export more than one post at the time.

The E2Pdf team is nailing it on tech support. It's clear that they are dedicated to solving their users' problems and going above-and-beyond to serve their users. Will not hesitate to buy the paid version of this plugin and recommend this plugin to others. I first came to them seeking help integrating their plugin's shortcodes within Elementor templates, and heard back from them within a few hours. Within a day or two, they'd fixed the issue and put out a new version of the plugin (impressive!). Not only that, but they notified me directly of the fix and made themselves available for follow-up support should I have any difficulty updating the plugin or getting things working on my client's website. Yesterday, that same client came to me with what looked like a challenging request. I anticipated that I might need up to 18 hours to figure out how to solve this problem and create a working solution. I messaged the E2Pdf team hoping to see--just in general--if such a request might be doable via their plugin. Once again, they overdelivered. Within hours, I'd received a message back from them telling me exactly how to solve my client's problem, including a screenshot of the plugin's interface with clear descriptions which settings I'd need to update (and how to make those updates). I don't know if they realize this, but their willingness to provide me with a half hour of customer service support yesterday means the task that I'd originally allotted 18 hours to will now only take me a few hours to complete, saving me (and my client) tons of time and money. Thanks again to the E2Pdf team for knocking it out of the park! You're going to dominate this market.

The plugin is working great and the support is amazing! the prices are a little high in my opinion and the subscriptions limits are very strict (only few templates and few sites), but beside that, it's a very very good plugin!
12 March 2020
Within a week of my submitting a report regarding issues uploading .otf fonts that had been converted to .ttf fonts, they released an upgrade that supports uploading .otf fonts. That was pretty amazing! I also had a number of very specific requests and issues, and the support team jumped on them right away and resolved them. I didn't expect that, but it made my life, and websites, a lot easier. The support for this plugin is excellent!!!!

Free version is for one page, which allowed us to test. We struggled on a couple things, but support was extremely responsive. They even updated their documentation! Thank you!
