Sites and addons are not working on PHP8.1+

When are you going to update all addons/plugins to make them work on PHP8.0+
It will never work unless you will update and make it compatible with the newest PHP version.

One of the errors:

"You installed PromoBanner plugin for PHP 7.2+, but your version of PHP is 8.1. Please download and install PromoBanner plugin for PHP 8.1."

So when we check the addons sections of the alidropship website on the promo banner page:

Version 1.1.33 – 29.03.2022 (current version)

Matisse Woo, Andy, El Greco, El Greco Woo and Picasso themes compatibility improved Close button performance on mobile platform improved Minor optimizations

Summary of the story is, that this plugin is not compatible with PHP8+. Let aside the other addons.

We have installed ionCube Loader 8.1 but none of the addons from Alidropship (abandoned cart, split test, upsell, GA enhanced, promo banner, post purchase upsell) ar working.

The file /home/domain/public_html/wp-content/plugins/adsabandonedcart/install/functions.php encoded as type [1/72] cannot be decoded by this version of the ionCube Loader. in Unknown on line 0

Besides that we have multiple other issues lately like images not loading from the gallery, payments not showing in dashboard. Variations images not loading. All related to the Alidropshop plugin.
