File Name : Offers and surveys for IP.Nexus store credit File Submitter : Faraaz Sareshwala File Submitted : 10 Mar 2013 File Category : Applications
This system allows you to monetize non-paying customers by having them complete offers, surveys, watch videos, etc in exchange for store credit on IP.Nexus. It allows you to convert potential customers into real customers by giving them an easy way to earn what you're selling. Not everyone has a credit card or PayPal account or means to pay online. Not everyone who wants your products is willing to pay for it. You still get paid, your users get what they wanted, and everyone wins.
Pays for itself
This modification allows you to monetize users who may have never paid for your products. Over time, it will pay for itself. I have been using it on my own site for many months now and have seen some great success from it. Many users on my site use this system to either get a full discount or a partial discount on our products by completing the offers and surveys.
This modification requires an account on http://www.srpoints.com Instructions on how to properly set up your account on srpoints.com are included in the readme file.
I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark. I haven't forgotten about this, but am just a bit busy with a high priority project at work. Once things cool down with that project, I'll begin working on this again.
To check the total points a user gets, login to the ACP and go to the offers and surveys app. The overview will have a log of users and their recent transactions. I'll look into the pm format and upload a new version when I have fixed it.
Yes, it should work. I'll update the main app page to list the requirements. The minimum requirements are IP.Board 3.3.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.x. If you have any issues, please let me know. As always, please remember to take a backup before installing anything on your site.
Sorry about the issue earlier -- there was a bug in the code where I was assuming that everyone had a table prefix of "ibf_" for their MySQL databases. Obviously that isn't going to be true always :P. I've fixed the code now so all new installs should work without issue.
Current installs will need to replace all the code -- just the PHP changed so no need to reinstall from the Admin CP as well.
Can you check a file for me on your server? Can you PM me the contents of /where/ever/your/forum/is/cache/sql_error_latest.cgi? I want to make sure that there was no issue in processing the postback from srpoints.com -- the PM happens after the store credit update.
Hm, strange. Yes, it's supposed to update his account credit immediately. I updated the file download with a bugfix last night regarding this. I'm wondering if you have the old version of the code installed. Could you try reinstalling the application and letting me know what you find? I apologize for all the trouble :(. For now you might want to just manually update his account with $1.56 of store credit?
I would take this up with SuperRewards -- if there are any problems with the surveys and offers, they will be able to help. On the offers page, you should have a link to get help. That will explain how to contact SuperRewards :smile:.
I'll update the links in the installation guide. SuperRewards seem to have updated their systems since I wrote the guide. Thanks!
The conversion from 100 virtual currency to $1 USD is just a conversion made in the app code. It doesn't have to be that way but I felt that that was the easiest way to get things up and running for new users since they didn't have to mess around with the currency. It was just less confusing to have it at a set conversion rate.
I'm a computer science major in my final year of university. I love to program and create tools and applications for people to use. I've been tinkering around with IPB for the past four years and have released some modifications on the resources section of the IPS site. Check them out here. Feel free to PM me if you want any more information about me .
