Thread: Featured listing flaw?

  1. #41
    So my understanding is that my free listing package must give at least one free featured ad? That sucks as featured listing sell for 50 USD by the company I will compete against. 10 Gmail accounts = 10 free featured listing.

    Pete,

    If I was to summarize your post, would the following be correct:

    A. No, using Listing Plans and Membership Plans at the same time
    B. No, using upgrade to Featured
    C. No, Standard and Featured Listings, only Standard or Featured Listings
    D. No, Monetizer plugin
    E. No, Multi-listing Packages with 0 Standard or 0 Featured Listings and both listing types must be equal in number
    F. No, offering different live periods across all Listing Packages
    G. No, moving from Featured to Standard Listings before a Feature Listing expires
    H. Unsure, No offering a Featured only Listing Listing package along with other Standard Listing Packages?

    Joe, all email templates are at best place holders only, you will need to test each email and adjust the text to suit your needs. It is impossible for flynax to please everyone with the wording, and as such yes, test every email and adjust settings and wording t0 best suit your needs and as such there are no issues with the email templates.

    Joe, no it does not mean that, you can use a single listing option for free ads.

    A. Joe I never at any time mentioned Listing Packages and Membership plans in the same sentence so not sure where that came from, but in answering that question and from past experience I did not find that they worked well together, maybe I was wrong but for me, it was one or the other and not both together, that does not mean it can not work together just for me it did not.

    B. Correct as best I can see at the moment it causes problems in that when upgrading to featured it does not add the numbers of days to the counter meaning the listing could expire before the featured listing runs its course. To avoid telling people to upgrade their standard listing before applying an upgrade to featured yes I would leave this out for now.

    C.? Yes, you can have standard and featured together in multi listings so long as they both have numbers, you can have them together if one is set to 0 as that currently causes an error and you can have a standard or featured single listings as well.

    D. I have said I removed it because I wanted a focus on just fixing the listings plans for a workable solution, it is up to others if they they want to add it back in and test it further and from what I see there is nothing wrong with monitizer it is that I chose to remove all other options for this test, feel free to test it yourself if you want to use it.

    E. No Multi listing must both have numbers with no 0 but the numbers of listings do not need to be the same, you can have 5 featured and 20 standard if you wish, the number that needs to stay the same across all packages is the number of active days for example 90 days.

    F. that is correct otherwise, for now, it throws all updates out of whack unless I am missing something, feel free to test it out you might find something I missed.

    G. Yes well that's what I recommended and shown a simple message to put on the update page for that

    H. ? not sure what your question is but yes you could have a featured only single list package and a standard only single list package, just test out the different options to find what works for you.

    I am not saying there is an issue with email templates. I am saying they should not be ignored. The language in the templates should match your plan setup. They possibly should contain warnings, if any. I agree, we need to personalize them on our own not Flynax. Next week, I will give everyone my revision of all email templates changed to reflect only listing packages.

    Thank you for the great guidance Pete.

    Thanks Pete for the temporary solution.
    - So we still need to have all plan (including featured plan) must have the same duration, which mean all plan must have the same 10 days, same 20 days, or same X days. If we have different duration plan and the customers renew their listing with those different duration plans, them and us are screwed, hard. This is not OK, as a classified ads website, we should be able to offer variable plan with different duration and prices.

    The warning you have are useful, but at the same time make our site sketchy/fishy when the customers look at it they think, woot. Why remove my paid featured if I paid you more for regular active day? I still have 10 days featured, my ads expired in a couple day. And I will be on vacation tomorrow, and won't be back for 30 days. I don't want my ads expired, and don't want to lose my paid featured.
    Still it's all we can do to patch this bugs. What makes me unhappy was that this bugs was reported repeatedly since 2018, 2019, 2020 in every version 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.2, 4.8.0. I raised it every version every year. I was told in ticket it would be fixed. And yet.

    If you look at it this is the MAJOR ISSUE for a classified ads website. Offering listing plans was the main function.

    Agree with above. I want to offer 3, 6, 9, & 12 month plans.

    Yes Wei for now for me at least with my tests yes you need to have the same day durations for things to work, I may be wrong though so others can do their own tests.

    Wei, I am not saying it is right, because it does need fixing, I was just trying to find a way for people to be able to use what is there now as a way to get something to work, for now, I think everyone including flynax understands it needs to be fixed properly.

    Again I was just trying to find a temp solution until that happened, I can see that you are still upset over it not being fixed after all of this time and all of the work you have put into helping to sort this problem, I know I would also be upset and I understand how you feel.

    Let's hope that now once and for all this issue is fixed.

    It was claimed in one of your old posts that the fix would be rolled out, that's why I asked for the fix to be posted here so we could fix it ourselves until the new versions came out, but that has not happened and why posted a temp option that I have tested and know works, even though it is restrictive and not probably the best outcome that people were hoping for.
