Ad Packs Memberships and charges
Thought that I would put this up it may help someone coming along behind wanting to set something similar up and someone might be able to help me sort an issue I have with the listing.
I have set the cost of an ad at £2.00 and to make it featured £2.00
I have 4 working Membership packs and 1 wish pack
Pack 1 - Free Listings 7 day duration No Charge
Pack 2 - Free Listings 60 day duration £9.99
Pack 3 - Free Listings 180 day duration £19.99
Pack 4 - Free Listings 365 day duration £29.99
Pack 5 - Free Listings 365 day duration Includes Featured Position £39.99 (Read On for details on this one)
I have one ad pack with ads set for 7 days at £2.00 per ad
I have one ad pack with ads set for 14 days at £2.00 per ad
I have one ad pack with ads set for 60 days at £4.00 per ad
I have one ad pack with ads set for 180 days at £6.00 per ad
I have one ad pack with ads set for 365 days at £8.00 per ad
So the user signs up and selects the membership required pays and returns to the site everything is fine. They then go to place the first ad and they get to the end of submit your listing and see the ad pack price of £2.00 for 7 days or £2.00 for 14 days and then the other pack options which correspond to the membership packs purchased. This allows the user to select a Membership pack they signed up for and adds the 14 day one into the equation for those who just want to list for 14 days for £2.00. This also allows for running a coupon code to make it free for 14 days as a means of generating a little bit of marketing for the site.
Then comes the confusing bit - At this point they have no indication that their ad is going to be free until they step over the page. Some will do but a lot will stop and wonder why they are being charged for an ad when they signed up to a membership. Surely the coupon box should have a drop down below it to select your chosen membership pack before they move off the page
Next point is featured ads - I want the featured ads to be free when user opts into taking the 5th pack at £39.99 I guess you would call it a premium ad pack - Anyone know how I can do this? I can't see a way to achieve this - I think I have just answered my own question by writing it here. To make the 5th pack cover featured change to 100% discount instead of fixed discount.
So really all I need to make this spot on is the user to have the option of selecting the membership pack at the bottom of the listing page so they don't panic and think they are being charged, and some paying punters
Hope this helps others
PS Is this system the same for all App themes products?
