About iframes and reviews. It means nothing to me but if that's what the plugin does then we're good.

OK, that is really good news and quite a relief, knowing this fact to be true! Thank you very much!

When I spoke to Ashley via Amazon Associates chat, she advised me to consult with my lawyer. Amazon expects you to behave like a real business, not just a hobbyist. If you can't afford to hire a lawyer, you can join Legal Shield (Pre-Paid Legal). They will review agreements for you for reasonable fees. But for us do-it-yourself'ers, here is some afternoon reading for you...

2. WP Cron - it's a feature of WordPress that runs in the background, automatically. Prosociate utilizes it to check Amazon's API for updated product data and prices, and then updates the products on your site with the new data.

#84
4. Prosociate constantly checks Amazon for the latest data and if a product is removed from Amazon, Prosociate will remove it from your website. If a product is out of stock on Amazon, Prosociate will mark it as out of stock on your website. This is all done automatically.

Amazon is lazy. When I go into a shop to buy a juicer I don't expect to have to call the manufacturer to find out how to clean it. I expect to be able to ask questions and get answers about a purchase because they are going to make a profit out of me.

When it comes to Amazon all they need to provide is the advice, I pay for everything else. I pay for the website, the theme, the designer, the software etc They do very nicely out of the hobbyists.

Prosociate Release Candidate 1
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

I am proud to announce the availability of Release Candidate 1 of Prosociate.

Additions:

* WAY better category tree. Search by browsenode ID.
* New Compliance tab on the Settings page to help you ensure compliance with Amazon's Operating Agreement
* Support for Amazon.in
* Ability to post products as External/Affiliate
* Filter by price
* Search by ASIN
* Lots of bug fixes

You can update automatically from the Plugins page of your WordPress (but the update can take up to 72 hours to appear). You can also register an account (use the same e-mail address used when purchasing) to be able to login and download the update from Prosociate.com.

Upgrade notes: If your site is live and you don't want to risk breaking anything, backup your site before upgrading. Since we completely changed the way campaigns work, none of your old campaigns will work properly with the new version of Prosociate. Products you have already posted will continue to working.

Please test, and report any remaining bugs prosociate@soflyy.com. We will be releasing 1.0 soon!

Best Regards,
Louis Reingold
President, Soflyy

You aren't required to show prices.

But items should show with a price - if not, it's a Prosociate bug. Re-post the products with the new version and if the prices still don't appear, send me an e-mail with the items that have missing prices and I will investigate.

2 - Listing of all items included in campaign, all contained on a single page and ignores current keywords
3 - An indication when CRON runs to update a Campaign, eg, last run on Tue 1st July 2013 at 15:00 with no errors (if there are errors, provide the log).
4 - Ability to override/edit the description imported from Amazon and for the edits to be persistent over CRON refreshes. This will help with SEO / avoiding duplicate content this in itself will differentiate this plugin from all the others! I would expect this would be edited via the listings in new requirement 2.
5 - Ability to select that only products that are fulfilled by Amazon

Cheers!
Thanks for the suggestions. Can you elaborate on 1 and 2?

4, 5 are very likely to make it in after 1.0.

Thanks for choosing Prosociate.

It is really easy to use and you definitely won't need to read any documentation!

Watch the video on Prosociate if you need any help getting started.

Thank you for the update.

I noticed that on a new campaign that the Title of the product is blank which also impacts the slug.

You can turn off auto-creation of categories through the campaign management screen ... in the 'Post Options' tab unclick 'Auto-Create Product Categories from Amazon BrowseNodes'.

I've removed RC1 as it broke a few things:

1- Importing new Products results in an empty Title and empty slug
2- This error "[30-Sep-2013 17:35:47 UTC] PHP Warning: call_user_func() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, no array or string given in /home/mybestse/public_html/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/single-product/tabs/tabs.php on line 35"

The server error log also had a bunch of other info relating to duplicate table entries.

I have reverted to 0.9.6 for now

Thanks for the feedback.

Send me an e-mail with keywords and category you used to post products that have empty titles. I haven't had any other reports of this.

2. You can ignore that. It doesn't mean anything is broken, it is just a warning message. We'll suppress it in a future update.

3. Server error log - please send me the error_log and I'll investigate.

Make sure you are using the same e-mail address to register for your account as you used when you first purchased Prosociate. This isn't your necessarily PayPal e-mail address - it is the address we sent you the download link to originally.

I did select the one category for it to post into.

WP Zonbuilder for example, creates the posts and ONLY adds the posts to the ONE selected category.

Hello Cow1981,

Nice blogs. What theme are you using? How do I set up the blog with the store? Sorry, seems like a dumb question, but still trying to learn WP.

thanks,

You can uncheck the "Auto-Create Categories" option in the Post Options tab to stop Prosociate from doing this.

If you haven't yet e-mailed prosociate@soflyy.com with the error message and your WP admin login details, please do so and we will investigate.

Getting the same error and one more which I've submitted to help desk.

One request which I don't like is that you want access to not only the blog but also FTP access.
The last 'Support desk' I gave that to ended with a loss of 16 blogs when someone infected all the blogs with malware.
Hostgator was not happy and deleted all my blogs.

Soflyy is a reputable company. We've run successful WSOs since 2008.

We sponsored WordCamp Los Angeles.

I'm on the Pressnomics attendees list: Attendees | PressNomics

So the last thing I'm thinking of doing is that.

To alleviate your concerns, you can use cPanel to create an FTP login which would only grant FTP access to the blog in question, instead of your entire account.

Just had our first (small) 'sale' via Prosociate Woohoo! Hopefully the first of many more to come.

If you're thinking of buying this plugin then get on with it before it goes up to full price.

Yes you'll be a beta tester but that is the trade off between paying full price and helping squash the bugs.

Re: (RC1 now available!) Prosociate - the new way to build Amazon affiliate stores with WordPress

With the new update and the ability to search by ASIN, does this mean only one asin number or can you input a list and it will bring up those products?

Thanks, this is the feature I was waiting for because I have a plugin for Firefox that shows all of the ASIN's for products I searched for in Amazon that I can copy and paste.

One other question: Can I post to a page?

You can bring up a list of up to 10 at a time.

You can't post to a page - the point of Prosociate is to the post the products as WooCommerce Products.

Sorry about that. I've sent you the download manually. We're having some problems with Easy Digital Downloads linking the downloads to existing accounts but the author of that plugin assures me it will be fixed soon. It won't have any affect on new customers.

If you're thinking of buying this plugin then get on with it before it goes up to full price.

Yes you'll be a beta tester but that is the trade off between paying full price and helping squash the bugs.
Thanks and congratulations!

Thanks all.
We're going to improve support for integration with All In One SEO Pack but honestly I don't think these on-site SEO plugins have much to do with successful SEO.

Seems to be a big problem, not able to post at the moment.
I should have checked the forum .. I've got the same problem. Old version still works ok. Help Desk ticket sent also. Importing via ASIN's is a bit dodgy too.

Hi -

I have just opened up a ticket for these issues, but wanted to post here in the event someone else may also have insight - here they are:

I have 3 problems I need to have addressed:

1. Registered for my account on the Prosociate site. I have the account set up now (userid-xxxxxx) but no download link is showing, nor am I showing that I have any purchases (I did use the email my original download link was sent to). I was able to download the release candidate version by clicking on the original download link though, and have it installed on a test site, which will be covered in the next couple of items. So this issue is more procedural I think, but needs to be addressed.

2. My test site is http://xxxx.xxxx.xxxx - user - xxxxxx - pass = xxxxxxx (provided in actual ticket)

This issue regards the plugin update: I am currently on the most current version of the plugin, but, I keep getting a message to update the plugin to the most current version, which is the same version I am running. I cannot get this update message to stop showing up. Any ideas on why this is happening?

3. Title not showing up on products - You can go into my woocommerce side and see my products, none of which have a title, even though a title was loaded in the initial search. I am using a browsenode search for these particular products, but have also done this with category/keyword search as well, and also got no title in the final product. I see others are having this issue, so, add me to the list. My browsenode info is in the current campaign.

Please advise on these issues - thanks!

I'm also experiencing these problems.
Will you please take a look at these issues Loius, thanks

I just responded to all outstanding help desk tickets.

For anyone else experiencing these problems:

1. If you want the latest version and it isn't showing in your account, just e-mail me and I'll send it. The developers of Easy Digital Downloads (our download delivery system) have confirmed there's a bug that stops the download from being added to your account.

2. Plugin update - you are using the latest version. You can safely ignore this message. It will have no affect on the real functionality of Prosociate.

3. De-activate and re-activate Prosociate.

We will be releasing 1.0 this week!

Louis

You missed my ticket. It's the one that says
We can't get the new version to work. We enter the licence key and activate but it's not activating. When we got to the New Campaign page we keep getting a message about activating the licence to see the categories.

I am using the latest version on the example site.
You asked for the login details which I sent with this message

OMG ! The prices are wrong. I used 10 ASINs because the categories/browsenodes are not working at all.

I included the list of the 10 ASIN's with the price table and discounts. The discounts were not coming through. I also included a list of a further 10 AISN's for you to test on the website and it appears you haven't done anything. I hope you have solved the problem with the discounted prices not showing.

Is there a warning feature just right before customers direct to Amazon site? It would be nice to disclose it.

Re: Prelaunch Beta: Prosociate - the new way to build Amazon affiliate stores with WordPress

Why is there a need for "Prosociate" when "WP all import" is available?



"We're adding the ability to post products as "external/affiliate" in 1.0. That means you can use it alongside our plugin WP All Import (WordPress Affiliate Stores from XML/CSV Datafeeds - WP All Import) to import products from CJ, or any other affiliate network that offers a datafeed.

The beta is now closed! We're ironing out the final bugs and will be releasing 1.0 very soon!

Prosociate makes the process of building an Amazon store orders of magnitude easier than it could ever be with a generic import plugin.

There is not, and that is a great idea. It is now on our todo list.

It would be great if there is a direct warning feature not only to Amazon site, but to other affiliate sites as well. Looking forward to try out version 1.0 for 30 days.

So - while we have all been having some really great technical discussions and problem resolution sessions here, myself included...what I want to know from people here is: How many sites have you built, how long to get indexed/ranked, and are you making any sales? Who is willing to share some stats? I'll start:

Total stores built so far: 8
Indexed and ranking: Yes, various spots for various keywords
Sales: 1 so far.

If possible, I'd also like to know if you are building the store standalone, or are you also adding any additional content to your site to help with indexing, bot visits, etc.

OK mikeronet - I've started two sites, one I'm focusing on now. Adding posts and content when I can. I have just noticed that I can't add to cart if one item is in it. Also can't delete item from cart at all. sometimes I can proceed to checkout (amazon) but only once; after that I go to a checkout page for direct sales. Might be a theme issue, I will look into it further. I am using the original version - not the updated one. Mike - do your products click through with no issues? Once in a while I get a 'not enough information to purchase thru Amazon' message on top of page when I try to purchase. So, I decided to wait for final release, hopefully some of these bugs will be gone. Oh hell, anybody want to try links and give me some feedback it is findyourwayback.net . Thanks all - I feel like we might be very close to ?

johnweyer, you're right. I added 3 products checking my cart each time. Only the first product every showed in the cart after the other 2 additions. The pricing is incorrect - the 'sale' price doesn't show. I 'checked out' and at amazon were the last 2 products but not the first and I got the 'sale' prices.

I used the back button and deleted the only product showing in my cart (1st item I added). It still showed in the cart after deleting. I used the Proceed to Checkout button and was taken to a WooCommerce checkout page where I could enter my name, address and pay by credit card or paypal!!!!!! OMG - that would be a total disaster if someone did that. That's fraud.

Soflyy - you seriously need to sort out these issues.

Share on:

Prosociate 1.0 is now available!

1.0 fixes all of the bugs we've been able to reproduce - most importantly, the incorrect prices issue which was responsible for the bulk of the problems with RC1.

If you were a beta user, thanks so much for testing!

You'll shortly receive an e-mail with the download instructions for Prosociate 1.0.

After installing it, I recommend de-activating and re-activating it in the WP admin panel.

Best Regards,

Pricing issue is fixed in 1.0.

Cart issue - of 100+ testers we've had this reported only one other time. So far we've been completely unable to duplicate it. To prevent users from paying, just disable the respective payment options in WooCommerce. To help identify the cause of the bug, we need exact steps to duplicate the problem.
