Forum Solo ads Sellers, we need your opinion

Hi All,

we are planning to create a widget to allow booking solos right from your website. It will show available dates right from your calendar and all solos will go to Udimi also.

Udimi will not add own fee to your click price on these orders. The only charge buyer will pay is $2 for payment protection and click filter.

This small feature can also help you to prevent overbooking.

I need to know if anybody actually goes to use this function or not. I mean replacing own "Buy now" buttons with Udimi button/calendar.

Best, Uncle Dimitry.

will we be able to sell more than 1,000 clicks at a time? or will we be limited? Quote Jesus Leon " I hope you realize that many of the established -big hitters here can sell way more clicks than they offer to sell at udimi. "

if there is a problem for sellers, we can increase this value

I would use a FULLY exposed API. In a heartbeat! It's so easy to do today with something like mulesoft.com All kinds of interesting integrations could be made. While you may not see the usefulness today just opening yourself up might attract some other 3rd party developers, strategic partnerships.

I didn't know about mulesoft. Will take a look at it for sure

nobody will use API. When we created API for optin tracking, not a single user installed it. Some people have problems even with current primitive copy/paste setup. In any case, we will create external calendar function as a logical site expansion.

While you may not see the usefulness today just opening yourself up might attract some other 3rd party developers, strategic partnerships. Which in turn could drive additional business for all of us.

I could see something like Empower integrating you into their backend or other big Bizop or MLM where the people could order from their internal dashboard after they create an account.

Anyway just some food for thought :)

don't forget that there is no "fee". The seller gets the price specified on the seller setup screen. About "thank you" gifts is a good idea, but for affiliates, who actually bring new customers and buyers to Udimi.

I think this is one those things, build it, promote the hell out of it and they will come.

But better yet.

How about you just expose Udimi via an API and let us build what we want?

Lowered fees will affect sales because the seller will sell more clicks here and less outside of udimi. If someone can sell 1k clicks outside of udimi for a fraction of what it cost here why would they. Prehaps if the fees per click were reduced after we hit a certain number of sales, kinda like saying thank you to the seller for selling the clicks here at udimi they would in turn offer to sell more clicks here. I hope you realize that many of the established -big hitters here can sell way more clicks than they offer to sell at udimi. You should ask yourself why that is and how can that be minimized.

Here's another suggestion. How about giving sellers a"fee" break after we sell a certain number of clicks. So for example, after someone sells say 1000 clicks a month the fees go down to 3 cents a click. More than 5k goes to 2 cents. If something likes this was implemented I know I for one would sel

I don't see how lowered "fee" will affect somebody's sales. On the other hand, we can increase that "fee" and use money to get more buyers on Udimi. This will surely result in additional sales.

Uncle Dimitry, other than the issues with the filter I see no other reason not to use this. Please note that I don't mean to come accross as remove the filter completely. I just want it to be more accurate :) Here's another example I noticed... If you send an email to a big list, as you know, many p

looking forward for your ideas. I am always open for new ideas that could benefit the community. We can also check the issue you mentioned together. Just PM me and we will monitor your next solo with you.

Well maybe if someone clicks refund they shouldn't be able to leave a testimonial. From what I have noticed they leave a negative testimonial based on the fact that the clicks weren't delivered on time. There are making their decision based on a deadline that was set up here that doesn't exist in th

”

buyer, who got 100% refund can't post a rating.

Why should I block rating option, if a seller delivered only 20%? Others have to see this. Entire community will benefit it. And even if this seller leaves, that's even better, because he/she will be replaced by smarter guy.

Plus: 7 days is more than enough to resolve _any_ problem, even re-sell traffic from other seller to keep own reputation. Plus: there is a number of automatic and manual locking options. Plus: seller can set maximum clicks per day available for delivery.

Sorry, but your idea will not benefit Udimi community.

From what I have noticed they leave a negative testimonial based on the fact that the clicks weren't delivered on time. There are making their decision based on a deadline that was set up here that doesn't exist in the real world. In the real world you tell someone I'm going to deliver the clicks in x days and if something happens you explain it to them and they wait. There is no magic button that pops up and says, click here for a refund.

Listen uncle, you asked what would make things better and I'm telling you something that a number of sellers are not happy about. I know people that have even left because of it, and the filters. If you want to say it isn't a problem that's fine but keep in mind you have said the same thing about the filters too, that they weren't a problem.

Here's another example I noticed... If you send an email to a big list, as you know, many people will click in the first 10-30 minutes of the email received and then the CTR will slow down. That means lots of clicks on a link at the same or very near time between each other.

The filter in this case misses around 50% of those clicks (it doesn't even capture them as being filtered!). If on the other hand clicks go slow e.g. 2-3 every minute then the filter seems to capture the click and origin ok.

I've got a couple suggestions myself as to a potential win-win solution for all inregards to the filtering. I will post in the suggestions thread on how this could be solved (hopefully) without too much hussle or change in the filter from your end (Programmatically speaking)

thanks

Yes, the automatic refund needs to be address as well. Setting up a deadline to deliver all the clicks is one thing but when you tell someone hey, the clicks weren't delivered on time click here for a refund, even though the system gives you another couple of days to deliver all the clicks is s prob

”

deadline is a deadline.

Even if the user clicks refund, only undelivered traffic will be refunded.

Plus, you can message your buyer, if something is out of your control.

In my opinion, refund engine is perfect and needs no tweaks or changes.
