    Today, I am very excited to release PemBer 1.2.0. This release builds on the previous version of PemBer and introduces several new features, including the hugely requested and unique xenForo affiliates system!

    This release took a very long time to perfect and I have several plans to further improve and build on this, however for the sake of those waiting for a long time to get their hands on this, it is time to make this available.

    The following are the list of new features in this release:

    Invites System for Affiliates

    Running a paid membership forum for several years now, I discovered the biggest hurdle in selling subscriptions through email marketing was the need to get people to register on the forum first. That was why PemBer was born. A system to let people buy immediately from a static link without any need to register.

    However, once we had PemBer up and running, we realized we could tap into the vast network of our members by giving them an incentive to invite their friends. Members could reach a lot more people than we on our own ever could. Other people who were using PemBer were telling me the same thing and hence the PemBer Invites System was created for affiliates.

    What the invites system allows you to?
    • Set a commission amount per product as a percentage or fixed amount.
    • A new "Share and Earn" page which allows members to share their affiliate link on popular social networks and through sending emails.
    • Both members and admin can see who they have invited have registered and commission earned.
    • Admin has various controls like threshold amount for payment, emails limit, payment hold etc.
    • Paypal MASSPAY API is used to send earnings through a XenForo Cron.
    • Admin can see all earnings and decide to place holds or configure the cron to run monthly or on any regular interval.
    Other Improvements

    In addition to the new invites system there are some significant improvements and bug fixes which are part of this release.
    • A new Thank you page has been added. This has the url <your-site-url>/pember/thank-you. You can add your own custom message on this page through xenforo a phrase and also use this url in your analytics systems to track sales funnel completion.
    • NoteToBuyer is added in case of Recurring Product purchase with a different first month amount. This shows the buyer on the paypal screen how much they have to pay on the first period and how much on subsequent periods.
    • Paypal screen now shows buyers both the options of paying by paypal and paying by credit/debit card. This was not shown earlier.
    • Minor Design changes on the products sales page.
    PemBer 1.2.0 can be downloaded from the releases forum for customers with existing licenses.

    A new installation service is also now offered. However this will be on a first come first serve basis and you will be given the exact time and timezone when the installation will be done on your site.

    Happy Selling with PemBer!

    PemBer 1.2.1 is a small bugfix release, which fixes the issue with My Purchases page not showing the end date for timed products.

    1.2.1 also introduces one small feature that one off products which expire can now be purchased multiple number of times extending the end date.

    PemBer 1.2.1 can be downloaded from the releases forum for customers with existing licenses.
