You are viewing: Private Sales Magento Extension v2.0
Plumrocket Private Sales Extension v2.0 - is a sample sales script that helps a client to convert his standard Magento platform into a Private Sales and Sample Sales website. This Magento extension will convert your store into a great membership website featuring special events, password access to site features, fully configurable splash pages with rotating background pictures and launching soon mode, dynamic shops, sales preview, multi-home page layout editor and integrated banner management system.
If you want to learn what is a membership site, try Plumrocket Private Sales Extension to see that it basically consists of two interrelated pages: Splash page (the access page containing a background image, registration form and password recovery) and Home page (designed to display and manage boutiques). Another advantage of our private sales extension is that it includes a Magento product countdown, which is a countdown counter for website allowing users totally control the purchase process. Our Magento membership extension will help you turn your subscription website into a real Gilt clone in terms of popularity and positive user experience.
This page contains the background image (usually related to the website activities), log-in form, registration form and password recovery form. Unlike standard Magento platform, our Splash Page is able to provide all the options simultaneously, i.e. log-in, registration and password recovery with no need to switch from on page to another. The authorization, registration and password recovery are carried via AJAX by default, i.e. the page is not reloaded while possible errors are immediately displayed on the screen. If necessary, you can enable this option and make users visit separate standard Magento pages for registration or password recovery.
Other options allow to:
Private Sales Extension offers new types of catalogs instead of the traditional catalog typically used by Magento. They are:
We can configure either separate default Homepages designed for men and women, or default main page in case there are no separate settings for men and women. If none of these options is enabled, the main page will be represented by the Default Homepage, which is a page containing products from all the homepages. Meanwhile, only after a customer moves to a particular Homepage, he will be able to see the list of boutiques belonging to that homepage.
The module has a flexible and convenient interface to configure each Homepage and Default settings separately. Each main page is available in two versions: there is a Draft Mode and a Preview Mode which is displayed to customers.
Thus, you can configure settings and structure for each Homepage. Such a configuration includes: the number of columns in the list of boutiques, merging of cells, location of banners, assigning images to banners, setting the time frame for the image to be displayed and periodically replaced by another one, etc. You can also configure the replicable part of the list. For instance, there is a standard heading, while the boutiques below are located in such an order: two boutiques in one line, one boutique and one banner - repeat. There is no need to repeat this set until all the structure is filled with boutiques. You should only make a pattern of the replicable part and the module will automatically build the rest of the boutiques into the structure according to the replicable pattern.
The configuration itself must be finished in the Draft Mode to prevent undesirable changes in the website main page. After the structure is created and all the settings are made you can publish the Draft making the page visible for customers. If there are any mistakes in the Draft and you want to reset it again, you can cancel the settings and the Draft will switch to its original view.
You can not only build a Draft but also preview the Page Layout, which will not affect the page itself. To do this, press the "Preview Draft" button before you press the "Publish" button - this will let you see the Page Layout before the Draft is published. It is a great option, since it allows you to preview changes before they are published. This mode is called "Preview Mode", and it allows you to preview both Drafts and the prospective website itself. The Preview Mode is available for each boutique, homepage or product configuration interface. To enter the preview mode, press the button and you will see such a panel in the top of the page:
You can also set the desired date, and after you reload the page, you will be able to see what the website will look like on that particular date, i.e. all the boutiques, banners and products will be displayed as of that day in the future. You can even surf the website and purchase the products from these boutiques as if it were a real-time mode! Moreover, you can also preview the drafts which are not yet published.
Note that each page contains the Ending Soon block - a list of boutiques that will be displayed less than N days only. You can either enable or disable this block for each Homepage, as well as, set the number of days remaining for the display, and configure the structure of this block just like you did it for the Homepage itself. Thus, each Homepage is divided into two parts - the page itself, and the Ending Soon block which can be configured in the same way.
There is also an Upcoming Sales section on each Homepage. It is a block containing a list of boutiques yet unavailable to customers, but to be launched in the nearest future. You can either enable or disable this block for each Homepage.
