Too much upsell.On first activation:- Selling another plugin via notifications- Adding too many useless pages to admin area – that we cant use before premium -> These should be one-view with listed benefits.With this I can’t trust plugin to be lightweight and not be spammy.This is not an experience I could even consider for client page.
