Ever wondered what collection of yours sells best? It’s now possible to get the answer. Just take a look around in the sales statistics and you’ll see who’s the winner with a blink of an eye!
It’s a feature many merchants asked for and now finally it’s ready: You can now add custom images (posters) to your collection previews.
Just go to “Show collections” and click any “Edit preview images” link. There you’ll find a new button “Drop new images here”, from where you’ll be able to add new images. So from now on you’re no more limited to images you find in your media but can add single images later.
As always: Please provide feedback if this does not fit your workflow or there is something not working as expected!
A short notice for you: It’s now possible to select up to three categories, so your collections may be found in more categories at clipspool.com, too!
clipspool_com is tweeting your collections. Please add your twitter username in the shops’ preferences so we can mention you. This makes it easy for you to retweet or favorite the tweet. You can also edit the segments we should use for tweets about your collections.
Update: We made it more intuitive how to select the relevant segments:
Get to know our newest feature, which just became available for all shopmaker.com shops: “Download Tokens”: Within your shopmaker.com merchant interface you can create single-use download links for any collection (a collection is a container that can contain one or more videos or imagesets).
A “Download Token” is a unique link to a specific collection that expires 24 hours after it has been accessed for the first time. Initially the idea was suggested by www.extrem-sm.com.The merchant wants to give his models access to the movie they starred in. “Download Tokens” do exactly that. The merchant now sends the link with the token to the model and the model is able to access the respective collection without having to create an account at the shop. After the model clicked the link for the first time it is valid for another 24 hours and expires afterwards (in order to minimize the possibility of abuse).
Of course, the real potential of “Download Tokens” lies in advertising and promotion. You now can create unique, single-use links to any collection of your shop. This link can be used in mailings or printed on fliers to be handed out on trade shows. The 24 hours only start ticking after the link handed out has been clicked for the first time.
Take a look at “Download Tokens” and tell us what you think. You will find them next to each collection.
No more “Go to next step” any more, you can edit the collection preview in one step now, since you can mark the links in the first step now:
In the shop preferences you now have the possibility to hide the date when your collections have been published:
We just added links to the collections index view so you can copy collections easily. You can use this technique to duplicate collections in case you split media in different parts:
You can also “hold the mask” when creating or editing a collection. When you save the collection you are redirected to a pre-filled mask so you just have to add a new medium:
We just refactored the collections filter to be more responsive:
