We are happy to announce a brand new integration between the German Payment and affiliate provider Digistore24 with Shika, our Joomla learning management system(LMS). In the past week, the Joomla! Developer Roland Meier from Medialekt added this feature into the Digistore Connect extension, so purchases via Digistore24 get directly enrolled in Shika.
Digistore24 is a popular german payment and affiliate provider, offering a large number of payment options like PayPal, Credit Card a.s.o. There is also a big marketplace where affiliates can get codes from the products, insert it into their websites and automatically earn provisions appointed from the product vendor. Also, it’s possible to create big partnerships and joint ventures.
The user purchases in the usual way the digital product. When Digistore24 gets this incoming, the program sends an IPN-Call to the Joomla! Installation where the Digistore Connect extension knows what to do, like adding the user and enrolling in the corresponding Shika course. In the case of the Shika connection, the user gets added on a purchase if he is not existing yet. Also, the user gets enrolled with a configured subscription plan like access for 365 days. If Digistore24 sends a cancellation or no-payment-received, Digistore Connect set the course subscription as expired.
There is also a Demo Presentation for Digistore Connect where you can buy things like in a real environment with sample 0€ courses. You see how the ordering process works, how you receive the access data and finally, you can log in and see your access to the course.
