From demo to full version with automatic registration

Postby fred » Sat Mar 12, 2005 4:06 am

Dear support team,

after having searched the Web for hours, I think your
[url=http://www.blumentals.net/scrfactory/editions.php]
Professional Screensaver Factory 3[/url] is the most appropriate one for us.

We plan to sell our science songs with synchronized karaoke text and (animated) formulas.

Invited by your links to ecommerce providers I found at last digitalcandle. Now I ask you and digitalcandlle for a selling solution.
According to Keycode _generation method 1 I suggest that you offer an url, which produces dynamically the registration code. It shouldn't be a problem for you, because you already have a built-in generator, producing the regcode from "first name" and "last name".

This would let stand out your Screensaver Factory 3 as the best ecommerce solution in the Web imho.

Of course this solution is only acceptable, if you don't disclose
the server stats to the public. (Only the screensaver authors could have some reasons to do it.)

<b>Benefits</b> for
- <i>your customers:</i>
-- no setup fee on digital candle (they appear to be the best ecommerce providers with only 10 % transaction fee and no other hidden costs)
- <i>digital candle:</i>
-- they get a great Software producer as partner
- <i>Blumentals Software</i>
-- as said above , you would stand out ... as the best ;-)

Now to the demo-fullmode:
Your screensaver generator would be very useful for the authors, when it offered for demo-mode:
1. a restrictable subset (of the movie, etc.)
2. the option of inserting ads
On registration these restrictions should be eliminated.

All the best to you
Fridemar

Combining Screensaver Factory 3 with your service:

Dear developers at DigitalCandle,

your company appears to be the best micopayment provider.
Combining this resource with a Screensaver generator
see http://forums.blumentals.net/viewtopic.php?t=323
this might help many shareware-authors.
I leave a copy of this email as
a public annotation (with
Wikalong, a plugin of firefox) to your
homepage http://www.digitalcandle.com/ to spread
the word of your fair offering to shareware authors.
At the same time I suggest to contact blumentals for
a possible joint venture that
appears me to me very helpful for a lot of authors,
who search for the best ecommerce solution to their needs.

All the best to you
Dr. Fridemar Pache
PS.:
If you know an equivalent commercial Screensaver generator, for which you have
a solution realized, I would be happy to know it.

PPS: My opinion is based on the comparison chart http://www.blackcatsystems.com/regservices/

Dear support at Esellerate,

looking for the best micropayment provider, I found your site. Combining your resource with a Screensaver generator see http://forums.blumentals.net/viewtopic.php?t=323 this might help many shareware-authors. I leave a copy of this email as a public annotation (with Wikalong, a plugin of firefox) to your homepage http://www.esellerate.net/eseller_integrated.asp to draw attention to your interesting product for shareware authors. At the same time I suggest to contact blumentals for a possible joint venture that appears me to me very helpful for a lot of authors, who search for the best ecommerce solution to their needs.

All the best to you Dr. Fridemar Pache

PS1.: If you know an equivalent commercial Screensaver generator, for which you have a solution realized, I would be happy to know it.

PS2: My statements on best micropayment providers is currently based on the comparison chart http://www.blackcatsystems.com/regservices/ and on your homepage.

PS3: Because not everyone may be a user of the Wikalong plugin of Firefox, I'll post a copy of this writing in the proximity of http://forums.blumentals.net/viewtopic.php?t=323 for the benefit of all parts involved.

Thanks! Will see if this works out. If none of the e-commerce providers would be interested, we can also offer custom key generator service at an additional cost. We have done it before...

Although I must say the concept is great, because we have a planty of customers willing to sell their screensaver products.

Thanks again!

Dear Karlis Blumentals,

there is a strong energy in the shareware authors' scene for such Self-Merchandising Objects (SMO), since this way their customers can most conveniently buy the full version.

The "demo-version" is in fact the full version, only running in demo-mode. There is no need to reload a "full-version". The "demo-version" can be freely distributed in the Web. The strongest interest in distribution is on the part of the ad-partners.

The users in general are not motivated so much, because they may think, they lose their "cutting edge" , if they tell other people about their useful software. (On the other hand there are really good guys, helping other people to prosper. With good guys I mean, that they duplicate the demos ;-).

For a demo-mode it is paramount, that your screensaver allows to show a set of intervals of the flash movie and overlayed ads, even an ad-trailer after the fractual part. User mouse and keyboard-input should be possible, due to the interactive character of flash. (E.g. to click away the sound).

To give you a compensation for additional installing costs, how about the option of imbedding your standard ads of your company. I think this would deepen the relations between your customers and your company (synergy-marketing) , thus producing much more profit (imho) for your company than individual installations.

Of course, if you and/or some customers prefer individual installations you could offer this option as well.

Having written to some screensaver-makers and ecommerce providers, your fast public answer produced the greatest trust-building effect. So you are for me (and possibly and hopefully, for a lot of other peers) the Nr. 1 candidate on my/our preferences and we'll spread the word.

If you want to realize it, let me be your first pilot partner, to start the adventure.

All the best to you
and your customers

PS.:
An IPN-handler for paypal in the software would be an alternative,
if www.eselling.com is not interested.
Perhaps Millicent, paystone, peppercoin or bitpass could be solutions too. Or have a look at www.e-junkie.com with their integrated hosting service. Or you offer a similar hosting service.

integration

Postby e-junkie » Fri Mar 18, 2005 6:03 am

Hi All,

I was contacted by a user on this forum for possible integration of hour system (http://www.e-junkie.com/) and Screensaver Factory 3. I am very keen on this and was wondering if someone will be able to provide me more details on this.

Our system lets developer accept payment directly in thier PayPal account and provide instant download of the product (and registration key) to the customer. We DO NOT charge any transaction fee and our monthly fee is $5 for 10 products.

Regards,
Robin
