This feature has been requested since the 26th of June 2011 source: . Whilst I understand that that IPS cannot incorporate every social network, could you perhaps explain to me why there are login methods for facebook and twitter, and not for lInkedin? Considering that the aforementioned social networks constitute of different but significant demographics that populate each social network?
Essentially I am referring to a customer "loyalty program". In order to increase sales/ retain existing customers.
For example if a customer has spend x amount of a units in your store, therefore the individual qualifies for a personal coupon of y%. An example of such system can be found in a competing product. See "reference #1" at the bottom of this post.
- Layered / Faceted Navigation for filtering of products
In essence, being able to filter a large about of products by selecting various admin set criteria.
Think of price range, color, size, weight, etc. This way a customer can find the product of his or her liking faster. Thus reducing the chance of losing a potential sale because the customer can't find what he or she is looking for. See reference #2 at the bottom of this post.
- Automated Email Marketing Reminders
In essence expand the "bulk mail" feature and tie that into IP.Nexus so one can inform its customers/ newsletter subscribers better about ongoing promotions. In addition be able to select specific filters to target frequent customers with "special" promotions. Set up campaign's for specific user groups or buyers of specific products so one can tailer the communication to it's "type" of consumer. Therefore create a more effective information flow and extract sales.
- Customer review system
I just noticedthat such system is already available in the IPS Marketplace, however it would be nice if users were able to give a rating (1-5 stars) for price, quality, and value. A "testimonial/ review" system can be of great value to an internet store since several independent studies have shown that testimonials/ peer reviews have a great influence on the consumers decision making process. I think IP. Nexus still has room to utilise this aspect.
I hope that this information was of any value to you.
First of all I would like to thank the IPS staff for all their hard work developing the different modules/ applications.
While I am pleased with the development of the core system I do have a few items I would like to suggest for a future release of IP.Nexus.

OP, I am Dutch, and I was able to use a bank wire to complete my initial purchase. Just create a support ticket for the sales department and they will generate an invoice for you. In addition they will provide you with the necessary details to complete your transaction..
I would like to request an "Linkedin Connect" component to supplement the current Facebook and Twitter social media connectivity features within the IP. product suite.
Why? I believe that this can benefit various communities, especially professional oriented communities. Note that as of 22 March 2011 Linkedin surpassed 100M users (Source: http://blog.linkedin...in-100-million/ ) and has a different demographic compared to Facebook and Twitter. Therefore I hope that you will consider adding this social media network to the the IPS software infrastructure.
I am impressed with the improvements/innovations IPS made to the overall core system. Moreover, I am looking forward to see how new versions of IP.Nexus, IP.Content, and IP. Downloads will enhance the overall developer and user experience.
However, I do have some feedback in regard to the current "License Key Missing" message.
In fact it is quite obnoxious for us licensed/legitimate users when it is obstructing system generated messages (often one cannot read system generated notifications due to the red banner that is overlaying the actual message).
Especially when one is developing on a development board which is fully compliant with the TOS/ License agreement.
I hope that IPS could incorporate a less intrusive method to combat piracy without taking away with usability of fully licensed users.
What is the staff''s stance on the current friend system? I would like to know their vision is in regard to connectivity and functions of ip board that revolve around social networking? Does IPS search to integrate the bigger social networks or does IPS intend to develop their own social networking features?
