It's a great pleasure to announce (finally ;)) that our super flexible E-commerce solution for Joomla is here! For those who haven't heard about this yet, here's a recap!
In all the years we have been working in Joomla, we have continuously been frustrated with the lack of a shopping cart solution that's plug & play & at the same time is robust & scalable. There are lots of Carts in the market. But for most applications, they are just too huge & come with a lot of overheads.
We are pleased to announce that SocialAds 2.9 has entered Beta! This version brings some pretty major features to the advertising scene in Joomla. This blog will give you a quick overview of what to expect. Note that this is a beta release & should only be used for testing & not on Production sites !
SocialAds 2.9 beta brings a whole new Charging Model. With this new model, SocialAds will now let you make a Pre payment to add balance to your account, then create Campaigns, set budgets & create Ads against them without having to pay & checkout for every Ad. Google Ads, Facebook & LinkedIn Ads already work on this model.
Switching to this model is optional. If you prefer to use the Pay & Checkout per Ad model, you can keep using this same. If you wish to switch, we have provided a quick migration tool that will convert your user's existing ad balances to the new model on a prorata basis.
Once you are on this model, the users can use a 'Add Balance' process to prepay funds to their account on your site. A Nice looking Ad Billing view shows a history of all transactions as well as full details of how its being spent.
The user can create campaigns & set a Daily budget against the campaign. Ads will be created against campaigns. SocialAds will show Ads till the daily budget is exhausted.
We have completely revamped the front end views of SocialAds & added some awesome Bootstrap magic. Now you don't have to wait for 3.0 to get a beautiful interface for SocialAds ! P.S. SocialAds will be 3.0 compatible by March end in the version 3.0 .
This version of SocialAds as of now has fixed 132 Bugs & added 6 features including the features mentioned above.
In order to do more inclusive development, we try & get our subscribers involved whenever possible in the planning & development process. This is your chance to help us test the beta release & also give valuable feedback on improving it. Jump on to our Beta testers Discussion forum. You can find documentation on how to setup SocialAds Beta 2.9 with Campaigns & Budgets here.
We are very pleased to announce the release of Invitex 2.6 which comes with the much awaited Facebook "Request" Invites and some really powerful features like Automated Intelligent Invitations, Google Analytics Integration & much more ! Here is a quick snapshot of the added features. Plus Invitex 2.6 is fully compatible with JomSocial 2.8 .
In line with our commitment to give you the best & the latest in Invitations, we have updated our Facebook API plugin to now support Facebook Request Invitations which is the latest suggested method by Facebook to send invites.
This is similar to the email Facebook sends “ Do you know Meg, Ryan, Sally ? ”
Borrowing on some of the logic we use in our People suggest system for "Imported Contact Analysis" , Invitex can now send automated emails to people who are not on your site yet, but are very likely to know a few people on your site. For this, you need to turn on "Store Imported contacts" in Invitex configuration. This is a revolutionary feature that will make your site as intelligent as Facebook :) & drive even more traffic !
In Addition a few more features which you will find pretty interesting are added.
