New: License key management & API

Saturday, March 9th, 2019 New feature

As of today, sellers on Sellcodes have the option to use an easy and effective license key system, allowing the managing of activation and de-activation of software products.

In addition to managing license keys via codes (API), sellers can also manage them on their License key management-dashboard when logged in on Sellcodes:

A typical process flow:

  1. You (seller) build the licensing feature into your product 
  2. When a buyer purchases your product, a license key gets generated automatically
  3. Buyer can enter the license key into your product which activates the software 

This way you have full control and transparency who uses your software and where (e.g. on which website). It is a rubust solution against software piracy.

The license key management system can be used both for web- as well as for desktop applications and for any programming language. 

Implementation is easy – get started by reading the license key management documentation. If qustions come up,  we’re happy to help!

New: Recurring payments

Monday, Auguth 20th, 2018 New feature

Today we’re announcing a cornerstone enhancement of the Sellcodes platform: Recurring payments.

Every business who split tests one-time vs. recurring charges will come to the same conclusion: recurring payments (subscriptions) are immensely powerful, almost always outperforming one-time charges in the long run. It’s equivalent to creating a long-lasting revenue generation machine.

Therefore sellers now have the option to set up an offer which charges on a recurring basis. It can be selected – as usual – on the “About” tab of an offer:

After purchase buyers will be billed automatically when their subscription expires, making people’s laziness work in your favor! 😉

To get started, set up an offer now.

New: Discount codes

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 New feature

As of today, you (as seller) can set up discount codes for your products.

The discount code generator tool allows for some flexibility. You can:

  • Set up a percentage (e.g. 20% off) or a flat amount (e.g. 5 USD Off)
  • Select the start and expiry date
  • Limit it to a maximum number of uses 
  • Limit it to one use per customer

To do this, please navigate to the “About” tab of your offer, click on “Discounts > Add discount code” where you will see this entry mask:

If you don’t have an offer yet, get started by setting it up now! 🙂

New: Quick purchase lightbox

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 New feature

Up to now, buyers had to login to Sellcodes before purchasing a product. That made buying a bit cumbersome, reducing conversion.

As remedy we reduced the multi-step buying process to the minimum: clicking on “Buy” will now show a single lightbox. After submitting the information buyers are immediately taken to their purchase.
