Many of our webmasters have requested a way to inform their clients about recent developments, for example a new model, updated payment plans or changes to the website.
A new feature is now available for all shopmaker.com shops, the “News” section. Within your merchant interface you can write short news articles, which will then appear on your website.
“News” are currently unidirectional, but maybe we will add a comment function for the clients later.
We want to draw your attention to news of us more frequently. The first step is to show you a message with news from us each time you log in to your merchant interface. So from now on you’ll be informed what’s going on behind the curtain! 🙂
News are shown
Also note you can always subscribe to our blog by email here
Most of your clients are honest and use their paid subscription only for themselves, as stated in the terms of your shop. But a few dishonest ones try to cheat and share their login and password with others, sometimes they even post them on the internet in forums, blogs or other websites. As a results hundreds of people could access your media without paying for them.
In order to safeguard your content and prevent illegal downloads, we have implemented SAFeR (Shopmaker Active Fraud Reduction), a multi-stage anti-fraud system:
- Your paysite is monitored 24/7 for unusual activities
- If clients download from several countries or continents simultaneously their account is suspended
- If logins or passwords appear on the internet the client is informed that his account is blocked. Our system constantly checks the internet, to find logins / password of your shops that have been leaked.
- New clients are assigned a new password, if they provide a password that is known to have appeared on the internet
- The maximum daily download amount is limited to the normal usage of an honest client. If this amount is exceeded, the client is informed / warned about the unusual acitivity and ultimitely his account can be terminated.
And best of all, SAFeR is integrated into the shopmaker.com system. No action required from you.
Hey, we just melted the blog into your merchant interface! Now when we post a new blog entry you get notified in your merchant interface. Isn’t this sweet?
Just log into your merchant interface and you will see the latest blog post.
The first preview screenshots of shopmaker.com download are available. Just click the images to get a first impression:
The detailed view of one collection
The payment interface
Some words for explanation: In future you will be able to sell collections “by shot”, so a client is not forced to subscribe to your shop if he is only interested in one collection. Instead he will find a link under each collection to “buy this shot”. The rest is really similar to the existing stealthID.com
: Select some collections, add them to the cart, buy, and enjoy the content!
So what is left to do for you as a merchant? Lean back and cross your fingers, so we will be live perhaps already next month! We will implement some nifty mechanics so you can enable your shop at a fingersnip ( or at least something comparable to that 🙂 )
As always: You deliver the content, we do the rest!
