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.

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 problem. When you get a new person in here that doesn't understand the business they are going to click refund, even if you have to deliver two or three more clicks.

Uncle Dimitry, the word "unfair" may have been wrongly used in the context :) what I meant is that if for every solo ad I do here I have to send min 50% and in many cases 80% more clicks than ordered to deliver just over 100 clicks counted, then it doesn't seem fair business. it would be crazy of me

thanks for your detailed answer. As Heather correctly said, we are developing a solution which will fit both buyers (who like the filter) and sellers (who don't).

Quick question: apart the filter, what changes will convince you using Udimi for selling solos on your site

Best, Uncle Dimitry.

If you have followed the thread Spam Filter Revisited thread Uncle D did promise he was going to work on a solution to our filter complaints.

Cheers, Heather

it would be crazy of me persoanlly to use this outside here as well :) it just doesn't make sense for my business.

I know the idea is to protect from junk clicks etc and I know you have taken this filtering task at heart and are passionate about it...

...but the reality is that I've been selling solos in safe swaps and now here for over 2 -3 years now and ever since last summer that this has started to be used I've had to drop the clicks I sell by 50% as I have to send 150-180 clicks on 100 click orders (which gets even worse for 150-200 click orders).

At the same time from every 100 clicks I sell I get to pay around 20% in fees (which includes PP fees I would have paid regardless) to Udimi. Which I really wouldn't mind as you provide the platform and you have to get paid as well. it's business.

Only if it wasn't for that horendous filter you're using mate :) I am sorry that's just my view based on my experience with it for over a year now (there is just no such a thing as perfect software outthere.

By trying to protect against every possible scenario that people may think to con others I think we have crossed to a point of diminishing returns in regards to Protection and usability.

I mean think about it this way... I send an email via my private server and suddenly I see clicks for data center/hosting as junk/filtered traffic et al. So either I've got lots of webhosting providers liking the free offers I send them (unlikely) or your filter is plain wrong.

Then everytime you guys seem to be working on the site to add new features/updates etc, it also seems the filtering gets even worse!

Anyway sorry I seem to have gone a bit off topic but I just wanted to state my 2 cents why I wouldn't be using this new feature.

I like your suggestion as an idea but as long as that filter remains as is then I won't be using this for external solo ads as well.

thanks for reading

where is the benefit for sellers? only avoiding overbooking? lol btw, Heather, it is the exact filter udimi is using that amost all sellers are not happy with, with the unfair click filtering, so not sure why you say yes:) and want to use it on your website too ??? haha ...unless you see a benefit I

funny to see"unfair". Udimi has the only accurate click engine on the market.

As for other benefits: all solos are in one place and payment protection.

This is similar idea to solo checker. It seems to work well so why not :)

”

this feature existed on Safe-Swaps and almost nobody was using it, that's why I have doubts about re-creating it.
