About a year ago I performed an evaluation and posted my Digitalaccesspass review (DAP). Since that time there have been several updates to the software. While the original review is in the process of being updated (many of the shortcomings mentioned then have been addressed), I wanted to share with you what is new in the latest release of this popular membership site software. You’ll also find a screenshot of one of the more anticipated features included with this update.
Digital Access Pass 4.0 was made public earlier this week. With a strong emphasis on PayPal integration, there are quite a few improvements that current and future customers are interested in. The main points of the update are highlighted below.
Coupon Codes for PayPal
- PayPal Button Generation is now done in DAP.
- PayPal Login Xpress, logged into DAP automatically after purchase, don’t need to wait for mail containing login details.
- PayPal sandbox for testing now available.
- CURL or FOPEN support connections to Paypal
- PayPal button specific redirect URL upon purchase success or failure.
*See screenshot below for an idea what the coupon configuration panel looks like.
Affiliate Tiers: Supports unlimited affiliate tiers.
ShortCodes: DAP now allows for partial content protection, like a video or any piece of content you desire on a post or page. More on DAP Shortcodes here.
Support for dime sales. Great for building a list, while injecting a business with sales. Not sure what a dime sale is? Decent description of this strategy is found here.
Multi-site Auth.net Support: This offers more flexibility to those who use Authorize.net as their payment processor, effectively allowing multiple DAP enabled sites to use just one Authorize.net account.
Coupon Support For Recurring Products: Allows administrators to specify the product trial period and renewal amounts via discount/coupon codes. This functionality will assist marketers grow sales and longer-term revenues.
More on Coupons: Coupons are easily created and applied to products in the system. They now allow you determine the discount amount, timeframe of discount, and number of coupons available. Why have false-scarcity, when you can have the real deal?
Post-Dated Product Chaining: If you have a special sale where you offer a bonus, which is a separate product in Digital Access Pass system, the bonus can be “released” to them after a specified period of time (after the refund period). More details found here.
In-Page Dripping: You might have 5 videos on a page, you can now release each new video at a specified interval. For example releasing 1 video a day, after 5 days they have all 5 videos.
“For Your Eyes Only” user-specific custom content dripping: This allows you to support individual users on a case by case basis (coaching clients with special reports, etc.) with content relevant to them. Very useful if you wish to drip out said content.
