WORST NIGHTMARE!!!! – Horrible customer service, never get anyone and wait time is beyond reasonable. When you reach someone they put you through to yet another person.

    Hey brother im so glad I found your video, I'm gonna watch all the videos regarding this. Question my bro, I plan to sell a digital software for forex trading. As with anything that has to do with stocks and forex, there is potential to lose money, is there a like disclaimer page are option I can add to my product through woocommerce? Like one of those checkboxes or forms that is like a "risk disclaimer " before someone can purchase my product? Hope that makes sense
