Never underestimate the power of creative people.
To make setting up the Sell Media plugin fast and simple, we intentionally put a limit on how many size and price combinations that you could add. We should have known that you guys are way too business savvy to have a cap on the way you charge your customers and clients.
So, we’ve changed this in our Sell Media plugin.
Introducing: Infinite Price Groups
Now you can set prices the way you want to. This is how it worked before:
- You created a collection.
- You could add three different prices.
This is how it works now:
- You create a collection.
- Three fields are ready for you to customize with different sizes.
- If you fill up those, another field will automatically appear…infinitely.
After you save your price groups, you can add your photos individually or via bulk upload. (Notice the new drop down menu on the bottom left.)
Voila! No more limitations!
What about the Photo Reprints Extension?
The Photo Reprints extension will soon be updated with the same “Price Group” feature as found in the core Sell Media plugin. It was important to get this feature added to Sell Media first. Expect the Photo Reprints extension to be updated within the next month.
Your Contributions Are Critical to the Success of Sell Media
Sell Media is an open source project. What that means is anybody including you can:
- Contribute code
- Fix bugs
- Build extensions
- Test future releases
- Participate in discussions
- Suggest new features
Many of you have made feature requests but may not have provided enough explanation or detail for the open source crowd to take action. Take ownership of your requests, and, if possible, add some code yourself! If you can’t, please, please, please, provide detailed screenshots, thorough explanations, and detailed notes on the feature you want added. If you develop your own paid extensions, we have a very generous revenue share. We’ve taken action on the infinite price group feature. You can move the ball forward on other features that we can’t get to yet. Contribute by setting up a free GitHub account here. (NOTE: For you users who need support for our paid extensions, please contact our support team. They’ll help you much faster than trying to contact us on GitHub.)
How Are You Going to Use This New Functionality?
Some people will use the new functionality to create private collections for wedding pictures so they can charge different prices to different clients. Down the line, we are planning on standardizing price group functionality into the photo reprints plugin which already has it’s own way to set up price groups. What other uses can you think of?
