Paypal, 2CO & clickbank are out. Nanacast looks great. Thoughts?

by 164 replies
Hey guys,

I have pulled my hair out for weeks trying to figure out the best payment solution for a fairly new IMer. I have ruled out Paypal, Clickbank and 2CO for different reasons.

I met Josh Anderson (a Warrior Forum Member) at the Canada Marketing Summit where he talked about his all in one payment processing, content delivery and affiliate management system: Nanacast.com. Josh is awesome and the system seems to be brilliant.

What I would like to know is before I sign up for the $100 per month, has anyone had any bad experiences with this system?

I saw another post mentioning that the member login is cumbersome if they want to access the material in their membership program.

I spoke with another gentleman who said that it may be tough for me to setup and manage because I am new and not very tech-savy.

Now that I have heard all of the awesome things about Nanacast, I want to hear about the downsides of this service as well. Every service has its down sides. What are they for Nanacast?

Thanks in advance,

~Sean

    $1200 a year?

    For a relatively new IMer you have already mentioned two problems that should give you pause for thought.

    I saw another post mentioning that the member login is cumbersome if they want to access the material in their membership program.

    I spoke with another gentleman who said that it may be tough for me to setup and manage because I am new and not very tech-savy.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to use $100 a month or less to learn ways to perform for yourself the tasks that this programme will do for you?

      I have dealt with Paypal for years and have never had any problems with them..I have heard some negatives but haven't encountered these issues myself. I have never heard of this nanacast and am wary of anything until I know its tried and true

      Isn't this the whole reason for the program: so that the mundane tedious tasks can be accomplished by the program.

      How much is your time worth? Even if the program saves you only two hours a month? Is your time worth $50 per our??? It is probably worth much more than that.
  • Profile picture of the author jdsonline
    I agree with artwebster. For someone just starting out, you would be much better off investing that money in your IM education or your websites themselves than to spend so much on a system that you probably won't be able to get much value out of at this point.

    Best of luck to you!

      Why was it a 'giant waste of money'? Can you be a little more detailed than that?

    Sean,

    You have met me personally, I have offered you free advice and assistance many times over the last couple months. We have communicated privately via PM and even met briefly in person in Canada...

    I wanted to note that: "JustinK" who posted a fake review above [Edit: it has since been removed by moderators] after creating an anonymous account in the warrior forum just today....

    ....has never used our service.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any one truly curious about our service may want to review our full featuers list on the Nanacast video faq page and take the 7 day free trial (no credit card required).

    Those who do that will see why so many leave some of the most popular solutions on the net and move their entire business operations into Nanacast:

    Here are a few review videos from various current Nanacast users:










    The best way to know if Nanacast is the right solution for your business is to take the free trial, tour full features list and start using the system yourself...

    I am also sure that many of our satisfied and successful users will post to this thread and offer valuable impressions from the perspective of actual users.

      Josh. I meant Screw Paypal, clickbank because Nanacast is the answer...

      I'm sorry if it came off the wrong way.

      I enjoyed meeting you and the assistance you have given me has been brilliant. I have no reason to slag Nanacast considering I am on the verge of signing up.

      Check my recent posts. I've been doing promo for Nanacast.

      Regardless, I will change it so that it isn't taken that way!

      Now, though I do not think you meant this but I find your post quite offensive and I request you change the subject.

      There is no reason for you to say "screw" my service when I have done nothing but try and assist you in the best way possible with no charge whatsoever. Also you have never used our service.

      So please edit the subject of your post because its an insult and its not appropriate.

      I know you are looking for constructive feedback but if you just want to speak to a just a few of our Nanacast/Mixiv/Premiumcast publishers then here are some you can contact privately:

    From this thread and the responses you have given regarding this Nanacast service...

    I truly admire how professional you are with reference to your service and those on here that tried to bash it...

    Keep up the good customer service...there are some clients that you will never ever satisfy no matter how much you bend to their will...

    It seems that $100 per month is too dear of a price to pay for an ecommerce solution.
  • Profile picture of the author Josh Anderson
    It seems that $100 per month is too dear of a price to pay for an ecommerce solution.
    That would be because you do not know what the "ecommerce solution" does and how much money it makes people ;-)

    This "ecommerce solution" is one of the internet's best content delivery and ecommerce automation systems.

    It surpasses all others in features and capabilities including on demand print and physical product continuity and unlimited membership site creation.

    We feature unlimited one click upsell and downsell integration and micro continuity automation.

    We also offer premium podcasting, rss publishing, and membership blog automation and are the only system that can offer this plus full integration with Aweber, Getresponse, and third party autoresponders with auto subscription and auto unsubscription to Aweber and Getresponse.

    It costs hundreds of dollars a month less than high end services that do less and just one or two features in our system provide the potential for companies to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars more a year just by implementing them into their sales process.

    Anyone who does not see the value of it has not tried it and it's free to try as mentioned above...

    Btw... it's cheaper than using Clickbank.

    In fact my system will save you hundreds of dollars a month over using clickbank if you sell any significant volume and it can make you thousands of dollars more.

    You see clickbank charges 7.5% on every transaction and 9% on recurring. This is far more costly than the flat fee you pay using our system. Plus our system automates the "one click" upsell and downsell process, allows you to create and automate the sale and delivery of digital and physical products as well as premium podcasts, rss feeds and memberships.

    When you see major launches by big name gurus using OTO or upsell offers, continuity, micro continuity, and physical product packages...

    That is what our system does. It puts that power in your hands, makes it simple to do, and automates the entire process.

    Also don't forget you can register a free account and take the 7 day free trial (no credit card required) if you have not done so already and watch these introductory training videos to get started.

    No review will do better than actually using the system yourself.

    Wow...

    Looks good.

    Josh, you remember the PM I sent you earlier today? Does Nanacast do everything I am looking for.

    Also, can it easily be fully integrated with Aweber?

    Also, does it have complete payment system inbuilt?

    Currently I am using Wordpress and Amemebr... but looks like Nanacast would be cheaper... I need a new Amember licence for every site I start.

    I am really getting excited. Problem is- I do not see a 14 day trial signup link. Homepage asks me for $97 upfront...

    Please let me know Josh...

    Looks like Nanacast is the answer to all my problems.

    • Profile picture of the author Josh Anderson
      Also, can it easily be fully integrated with Aweber?
      The nanacast platform is the only complete ecommerce + membership site creation system that is integrated with Aweber.

      Just log in to your aweber account and click on email parsers and you will see it in the email parser list:


      The trial signup link is found on Nanacast.com's home page.

      Yes, Nanacast does everything you are looking for including one click upsells with credit card checkout.

      We can help ALL US and Canadian applicants and many international applicants obtain an Authorize.net enabled merchant account.

      If you can incorporate in the EU you might qualify for a PayPal Website Payments Pro, or www.Eway.co.uk gateway enabled merchant account or possibly a Durango Merchant Services or NMI gateway enabled merchant account.

      You can also process via PayPal standard and 2checkout but one click upsells only work with a real merchant account.
  • Profile picture of the author lakshaybehl
    Wow... Awesome stuff, Josh.

    I never thought it would ever be possible to add people to my Aweber list automatically.

    Just one last question (Guess I will be able to get most of my 'other' answers inside the Nanacast area once I play around with things a little.)

    I am looking at Durango-Direct for accepting credit cards and I have almost completed my research so 99% I am going with them. Is Nanacast compatible with that? If it is, I can safely say goodbye to aMember Pro ...

    Everything's looking bright today... Thank GOD.

      Curious to hear this one as well.

      As a side note, a few people mentioned that $100 per month is too much. Here is how I break it down based on $2000 on sales per month for my business.

      My business heavily relies on continuity so I would be charged 9% through clickbank. Nanacast is only 2 - 3% (merchant account and gateway fees).

      If I do $2000 in sales:

      Clickbank costs: $2000 x 9% = $180
      Nanacast costs: $2000 x 3% + $97 = $157

      So I am saving on a monthly basis AND I have WAY more features available to me and control over my business than a clickbank or 2CO.

      Too expensive?

    Nanacast is the technology platform to go with - solves all my issues with various other delivery mechanisms (shoot - it even integrates with kunaki and vervante for physical delivery), has the OTO and dynamic pricing built in - plus easy affiliate program...haven't even approached Josh yet for the merchant account he hooks you up with!

    I am moving all my stuff and my offline clients 'info-products' I create with them to the nanacast platform - the videos are great as well - the 'tutorials'

    My view of it is that it is the Ferrari of a delivery platform with lots more and yes I bought it while watching Josh on ustream on the canada marketing summit seminar.

    I've also had great experiences with support/help from Josh and his team - here is one example, last night I entered a support ticket and within 30 minutes got the answer from Josh so not sure why one in this thread would say there was no support.

    Anyway - my team is 'uber' excited about this technology platform and yes the login might have been a bit cumbersome to get access - but shoot - worth it! so what - I spent 5 extra minutes registering myself after paying... ..Plus Josh shares great advice on how to sell etc. that alone is worth a pretty penny - the extra increase in sales for the OTO's -

      Know what Maria?

      One of the very first programs I plan to launch using Nanacast.com (Fairly certain now) is Ultra Uber Achiver Club... So yes, in a sense we are also way too excited about this.

    You are absolutely correct as I have already stated in this thread.

    There is no way anyone can do one click upsells without a merchant account in any system which is why I have posted a couple times in this thread describing exactly how you, as you are in India, can get one:

    If you can incorporate in the EU you might qualify for a PayPal Website Payments Pro, or www.Eway.co.uk gateway enabled merchant account or possibly a Durango Merchant Services or NMI gateway enabled merchant account.

    You can also process via PayPal standard and 2checkout but one click upsells only work with a real merchant account.
    We provide applications to Authorize.net enabled merchant accounts available to 100% of American and Canadian applicants.

    With our system you can do OTO with paypal but the only way to make the upsell a "one click" upsell which means that the client does not have to reenter their CC data is to use a merchant account because our system needs to capture the CC data to do that.

      Josh,

      Durango-direct claim over 95% acceptance rate for international merchants. That is on their website. If that is true, then why do you say we need to incorporate in EU? Also, if the numbers on their website are true, I believe that you might be having an even better success rate than the average general acceptance rate for anyone else. Right?

      I know nothing about incorporating in EU. Josh, can you please help me with that? You Know that I am damn serious and have been unable to maximize business because of the lack of proper payment processors. I am already falling in love with Nanacast... Authorize.net or Durango is the last missing piece of the puzzle. I am willing to take the action required to incorporate in EU... as long as it really helps me be with Durango. I need your help on this, Josh and I am asking for that

      I just completed the application process for Authorize.net through the link you provided above... And I hope to hear some good news very soon.

      -Lakshay
  • Profile picture of the author Josh Anderson
    Lakshay,

    1. I will not be able to help you create a business entity or incorporate. I don't do that. You will need to do your own research and find your own way on that.

    2. The form will go to our partner and it will be completely up to them on whether they can process it or not which will bear largely on whether they have a merchant provider that integrates with Authorize.net that will handle India accounts.

    So that is as far as I am able to discuss those subjects as I have nothing more to offer you in information on that end.

    Also the upsell examples you listed are not the type we are talking about... ours would be one click offers after the initial order is processed. In other words it would have no impact at all on front end sales and it is guaranteed to increase back end sales.

      Here are the exact numbers:

      Charge Today Merchant Account Fees (the merchant account Nanacast set me up with)
      $10 per month
      2.19% +.$25 transaction fee

      Authorize.net (the gateway Nanacast set me up with)
      $20 per month
      $.10 transaction fee

      Nanacast
      $97 / month

      Totals:
      $127 / month USD

      $.35 USD processing fee
      2.19% transaction fee



      This is a WAY cheaper solution than any other option out there (Clickbank 9%).

    nanacast looks great but there's no admin area demo (or maybe i missed it?).
    i watched Josh's videos but after a long period of watching I just couldn't do it any more just to find out how a few things worked. (that's where an online demo would really shine)
    So to Josh, or any nanacast users, can you let me know.......


    1) Is the nanacast software this hosted or installed on my server?
    2) Is there a Joomla plug-in?
    3) Can it be setup to roll with ButterflyMarketing style?

    4) Can I setup multiple limited-access Admins?
    5) Is this feature available? On-the-fly PDF customization
    6) Is this feature available? DRM for ebooks (with remote de-activation)

    7) Your video mentions its great for marketing physical products and works well with disk.com. Will it send my customer's order info (including shipping address) to disk.com or another fulfillment center?

    8) Your video mentions it works with continuity programs.
    Now, what about physical products (mentioned in item 6) PLUS continuity....

    ....(7a) My continuity customers will get a DVD every month.
    ....Does nanacast work with disk.com to make that happen automatically?

    ....(7b) and if I want to do in-house shipping of the DVDs to my continuity customers,
    ....will nanacast allow me to print mailing labels?

      The videos linked from the "How To" page top corner especially these three (the playlist pops open from page below) will show you various areas of the publisher account where you run everything from:

      Viral and Premium Account Training

      1) Is the nanacast software this hosted or installed on my server?
      The system is an online service. No scripts to install. Run unlimited sites with it.

      2) Is there a Joomla plug-in?
      We provide an api you can use to integrate with third party scripts.

      We provide a wordpress plugin... but joomla you will need to do via the api or hire someone to do for you.
      3) Can it be setup to roll with ButterflyMarketing style?
      Not sure what that means... but yes, it likely does most everything BFM does and definitely a lot more.

      Its not really a me too... we do most everything you would want but you will find we take a different smoother approach than most others.

      4) Can I setup multiple limited-access Admins?
      Yes for billing and customer service type purposes ie. if you have a support staff you can create limited access accounts so they can help you manage your customer support.

      5) Is this feature available? On-the-fly PDF customization
      No but there are already great pdf branding apps out there. Viral PDF is one.

      6) Is this feature available? DRM for ebooks (with remote de-activation)
      You can use our API and integrate with drm scripts if you want... however I think a better approach is to publish content as membership sites. That way you can not only update the content in real time but it makes your site sticky and gives you more chances to build relationships and sell.

      Our membership content system has plenty of automated access security... refund - access ends, stop paying - access ends, IP access limits etc.
      7) Your video mentions its great for marketing physical products and works well with disk.com. Will it send my customer's order info (including shipping address) to disk.com or another fulfillment center?
      Sure we provide out of the box integration/automation on demand with disk, vervante and kunaki, we also integrate with PMI fulfillment and you can use our API to integrate with any fulfillment house.

      You can also use our autoated notification system to send email notifications with selected fields for fulfillment either in house or to any other fulfillment house you may be using.

      8) Your video mentions it works with continuity programs.
      Now, what about physical products (mentioned in item 6) PLUS continuity....
      We do it better than any other system

      Every type of continuity (micro, forced, bump, trial, multi pay, recurring,) and we have specially desiged features for physical continuity in our billing system.

      You can do physical continuity with traditional fulfillment or you can do it on demand for disks, books, binders, combo packs, news letters etc.

      Dvd, book, cd, newsletter of the week, month... whatever we can do it.

      True on demand with no up front costs as well if you use Vervante.com Disk and kunaki require some front load.

      Heck we can even broadcast on demand print products to the door steps of subscriber bases.

      Think of email autoresponder and broadcast system except for physical... that's what we can do.

      ....(7a) My continuity customers will get a DVD every month.
      ....Does nanacast work with disk.com to make that happen automatically?
      Yes
      ....(7b) and if I want to do in-house shipping of the DVDs to my continuity customers,
      ....will nanacast allow me to print mailing labels?
      Nanacast will email you or send via api any info you capture in the sales process and you can even define which fields you capture get sent to whom.... if say you have a shipping department and a phone lead follow up department.

      You will need to print your own labels.

      Hi Its Trish,

      I noticed your questions to Josh about nanacast and I wanted to follow up with you.

      I also use Joomla and wanted to know if you have set up anything with nanacast yet that interfaces with joomla?

      Great questions for Josh too. What kind of business are you tied to?

      I specialize in real estate training, investing and marketing & speaking. Looking to do more JV's or teleseminars, etc.

      I have about 100 domains and am working on getting various products launched and automated as quickly as I can.

    Very ignorant comments (bashers) in here... If you think $100 is too expensive you need to re-think something RIGHT now... and that's your GOAL for your business... If $100 A month isn't a TOTALLY INSIGNIFICANT business expense you are thinking WAAAAAAAAAAY to "small"... THINK BIGGER..Think "I'm going to have 10,000 clients paying me $100 a month", so who cares if I pay $100 to have it all conveniently automated

    I just launched a membership site using nanacast and my authorize.net account. I am overjoyed with the system. My membership is a Fixed term membership ala Jimmy D. Brown/Russel Brunson. My niche has some users who are not that expereineced and yet I have not heard any problems about loging in. I have asked everyone have they had any problems and everyone who rsponded said they have had no problems.

    Granted my site ain't that big...only 40 members now...but I am very happy after 1 week...I am moving all of my stuff off of 1shoppingcart to nanacast...

    On another note...The idea that 100 bucks is too much money for all that nanacast does is absolutely rediculous. You get just about everything that 1shoppingcart does...plus you get a full membership site with drip-feed of new content and you get 1 click upsells...you even get automatic connection to kunaki...

    I am a great believer in this thing...
