Sell Media 1.9 is officially out and we’re really excited to show you what it is capable of. We’ve made several major changes that really improve how Sell Media works for you and your customers. It is available to download from our Sell Media page and WordPress.org. You may also upgrade to the most recent version directly through your WordPress dashboard.
To ensure your website continues to be uninterruptedly awesome, please make sure you have updated both Sell Media and your extensions to the latest available versions.
What’s new in Sell Media 1.9?
Thanks to your generous feedback we’ve been able to make changes that will improve how your users interact with your products on your website.
- Responsive (mobile) e-commerce for creatives - Now your customers will be able to effortlessly purchase your artwork directly from their mobile devices.
- Flat taxes – Configure your store to apply a flat tax to all purchase.
- Advanced search integration – We’ve optimized and incorporated the Advanced Search extension into our core Sell Media product, making it accessible to everyone who downloads it! Search by title, by collection, by keyword or by price. This should make finding the photographs they need a little easier. A win-win situation.
- Sell packages – Sell many images at once using the new Packages feature. This is perfect those of you who do weddings, event and studio photography.
- Streamlined checkout process – Buyers will fly though your checkout process. Fewer clicks between your customer and the product means more sales for you!
Three New Shipping Options
You can now add shipping rates through our Photo Reprints extension. You’ll be able to pick from three different shipping rates that will help you determine your customer’s shipping costs based on your customers’ purchases.
Navigating Sell Media 1.9
Although not much has changed in the way Sell Media administration panel looks we have added new tabs that house the many features we listed above.
Finding the new packages feature is really simple. First visit your Sell Media plugin menu and click on Add New. Here you will be able to open the new Packages tab. This tab is where you will be able to determine the name and price of your package after you’ve uploaded it via FTP to your website.
The new shipping rates feature can be easily found through Sell Media’s settings section. You’ll be directed to a page with five tabs. Clicking on the Pricing tab will open the section where you’ll be able to determine what shipping rates you would like to apply to your products.
Remember we have many more extensions available for Sell Media that will help you increase your sales, geenrate better insights, and improve your customers’ shopping experience on your website. Please check them out! We know you’ll love them!
