How is JVZOO working for product sellers?

54 replies
Hi all.... As I create new products this year, I have been looking at JVZOO. I have never put a product on Clickbank. I have on WarriorPlus. But, JVZOO does look interesting.

For those who do NOT run WSOs and just put their products in the JVZOO marketplace, can you tell me if you are making good sales and getting affiliates?

Just trying to pinpoint where to put my products to get the best bang for my buck.

    Charity,

    Thanks for the interest in JVZoo. Out of our top five best selling products, four are NOT WSOs. Non WSO offers are doing extremely well. Log into the affiliate center and click on "find products" to get a glimpse of how well products are selling.

    Thanks again,
    EBR

      Thanks for that info. Is it possible to sell a product at JVZoo that you are also selling in other places? I realize I would have to have duplicate sales pages but just curious....Thanks!

        Not only can you do it, it is encouraged! Think about it this way... If you sold fishing poles and WalMart picked up your product line, would you say no if Target wanted to sell your poles too?

    JVzoo looks great,
    But I sell a lot of niche products (not in MMO or IM niche) so I guess this wouldn't be the best platform for my products (judging by what seems to be selling).

    On another note: once you have attracted affiliates for a specific product is it then possible to inform them of a new product release (I.e, can you contact affiliates?).

    JVzoo Review from a seller.

    I decided to use JVzoo for my latest WSO release :Instant EBay Lister"

    My Biggest fear was that I would miss a lot of affiliates as so many people use WSO pro, Including the big guns.

    That proved to be Correct and Incorrect at the same time.

    At JVzoo I got about half the affiliate requests I normally get at WSO pro, I am not a mega seller so its usually the little guys like me that request the link.

    BUT From the affiliates that did get on board at JVzoo they made 10 TIMES more sales than any affiliate I had ever recruited via wso pro.

    These guys took my product and ran with it. making Loads of sales and getting me traffic. VERY Impressed with the JVzoo affiliates.

    ZERO account fraud unlike another Instant pay site I used a few months go and had to do some fast talking to keep my paypal account.

    The JVzoo interface is refreshingly easy to use and set up, you can host your own sales page or build one right inside JVzoo, a Great feature for those that don't buy domains for every product they sell.

    Although a few times I built a hosted sales page and when I hit the "backspace key" it went back a page and deleted my work. It seemed a little unstable and fussy.

    The ability to ADD JV partners and split the money is awesome and a feature I will use in my next product launch as I have a JV partner for that one.

    Adding Upsells is easy and straight forward.

    There is a great feature to be able to PRE-launch a product and on your specific day it automatically reverts to the sales page and opens up sales. Pre-launch is an avenue I would like to utilise and the ability to do it do easily with JVzoo is a plus in my book.

    Product delivery for your customers is easy, Though I would like to be able to add multiple files to my product download pages. (same problem at WSO pro) When you add the software, videos etc etc it gets to be a big file. I'd like to be able to break it into smaller files to give customers more choice on what they want to download. Also the old UN announced bonus is a favorite of mine.
    A Hosted download page we could build inside JVzoo would be really awesome.

    A few times I had people complain they never got there email (3 times in 250+ sales.) Finding their transaction and resending the welcome email took about a minute.

    The NO Upfront fees is a great idea, You can select to pay a fixed listing fee or just pay % out of each sale.

    This is a great feature but if I had of known the JVzoo affiliates would go so nuts I would have paid the $17 up front. It was only 50 odd cents a sale but it added up over 250 sales.

    All in all I am a JVzoo convert and will be using that platform exclusively from here on in.

    using their system I made 3 times as many sales as any other wso I have done and in a much quicker time frame due to the efforts on the JVzoo affiliates.

    I was able to gain BEST SELLER of the day and TOP PICK of the day on january 23rd 2012.

    I would like to say that if your considering JVzoo it has my highest recommendation. E Brian Rose has really developed a great platform and I look forward to launching my future WSO's and also main products from their interface.

    Well done to the JVzoo crew.

    9 out of ten from this Aussie.

    Thank you for the extensive review on JVZoo as that seems to be the real hot topic in the forums...

    I just used W+ for my last WSO and had success with it, but theres so many more attractive features JVZoo seems to offer. It's one of those things....people fear change.

    You're making me really consider what platform I'll be using in the future. Thanks for the in depth post.

      Hi Tiffany,

      You can upload your product direct to JVZoo, up to 120mb, and the delivery is secure, available to the purchaser only. Any sharing will set off red flags and disable that buyer's link.

      If you product is over 128mb, you can choose to have your own download page.

      Thanks,

    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know if JVZoo is compatible with WSO Pro Guardian? The script itself creates secure download pages for WSO Pro listings so I was wondering if it can also do the same for JVZoo?

    If not can anyone recommend any scripts that can create secure download pages for JVZoo?

    Thanks,

    Tom

      Not sure honestly, but again we can test it. I know we're fully compatible with DAP, Memberchamp and WP File Lock

        How would I go about requesting a test Bryan? I've actually had a go with JVZoo since my last post and tried to get WSO Pro working but I couldn't figure it out.

        I'll also leave a little feedback on what I thought of JVZoo...

        Good Points:

        1) Split Payments:- This is a fantastic feature for anyone doing a JV. It just saves you so much hassle transferring payments to your JV partner and let's you both instantly know where you stand in terms of sales revenue.

        2) Instant Pages:- This is another fantastic feature because even if you decide to go with Warrior Plus for your WSO listing, you can still have your item for sale on a JVZoo Instant Page.

        Areas For Improvement:

        1) JV Stats:- Although split payments is fantastic, the rest of the JV stats aren't so great. Basically, the person who set up the listing gets all the stats - the other JV partners are left with none. It would be great in the future if there was some kind of JV Stats module so everyone in the JV could have visibility of conversion, visits to the listing etc.

        2) Affiliate Program:- The actual affiliates on JVZoo are quite good and did generate a few sales for us. However, the big thing that's missing is that JVZoo don't generate any affiliate sales for you. When I list a WSO on Warrior Plus I'm guaranteed at least 5 sales from their affiliate program (usually a lot more) so to suddenly lose that when you go to JVZoo is quite a big hit.

        Overall Opinion:

        JVZoo is a very good program but there's room for improvement. It's a pretty close call but I think for the moment I'll be sticking with Warrior Plus because of the extra sales they generate.

        Tom

          Hi Tom, thanks for the feedback on it. Always great to hear experiences.

          Just put in a support ticket that you want to test integration with what ever software you have and we'll see if we can't get it to work.

          As far as the JV features go, it was never built for them to see the stats. It was a built for a hands off way to split payments for you so you didn't have to move money around and could get potential partners or things you would normally outsource done for free by giving people a %.

          The stats are generated by clicks that come to your account as the vendor, the JV's have to have their own account with their own links, so to actually show your stats to them would be beyond messy. If they really want to see the stats, you can always give them login access to your account or take a screen shot for them. We have had a couple people ask about it, so at some point we'll get a work around on that so stats can potentially be seen by JV's once we get the other features in people have been asking for most.

          Not sure what your offer was to be 100% honest, but some vendors were actually surprised by the amount of sales the platform actually did generate for them that didn't come from affiliates.

          As always though, thank you for your input. It's things like this that give us more insight into what people want so we can make it happen

    I'm really interested in using JVZoo to sell some digital products -- it looks like they're doing a super job in their service there.

    But I'm feeling a little frustrated from the affiliate viewpoint. I wish they had a search feature like they do for the marketplace so that I can find a product easier and request to promote it. It seems I have to run through a long list looking at product after product. Also, once a merchant approves me as an affiliate, it would be nice to have future affiliate links ready to use from that merchant when they launch a new product. Just my thoughts...but overall, I really do like JVZoo.

      JVZoo have a search feature and also categories. You have to log-in to your JVZoo account to be able to see and use it.

        Well, I'm aware that they have a search feature for the marketplace, but the links take you to the salespage, not to the feature where you can request to be an affiliate.

        When I go to "affiliates" page >> then "find products" page, there's just a long list of products to scan through.

    I really like JV Zoo. They've got a lot of great features, and their system is incredibly easy to use.

    As far as affiliates go - it's just like anywhere else. I don't care if it's ClickBank or W+ ... You need to be out there actively recruiting your own affiliates. You can't sit back and expect them to come to you.

      Forgive me for asking this, but I have a product I'm working on and I've never sold an info product on my own before. I was thinking about doing a WSO and using JVZoo. How do you go about actively recruiting your own affiliates? Listing it is not enough?

    Bryan,

    My business partner wants to know if we choose the free option of selling a product by paying the 5% fee on each transaction -- can we later switch and pay the $17 one time fee? Or is this a one time decision when you set up the product and can't be changed later?

    I was impressed with the way it is set up but my first experience with trying to get a product into the marketplace is difficult to say the least.

    I have tried every imaginable setting as a vendor to get my product listed for sale but it is not for sale.

    I have a JVZOO buy button on my sales page.
    which only leads to this message on JVZoo: "The product you are trying to purchase currently cannot be sold."

    Inside my sellers dashboard I get the message: "Your product is NOT available for sale."

    I opened a support ticket and have been waiting most of the afternoon. Has anyone had problems getting products to go live? I wouldn't bother asking here except I am supposed to leave town tonight and wanted to do some sales on my trip but cannot if no one can buy the product.

    Update: Now I have waited into the night for a simple response to a support ticket. How long do JVZoo support tickets take for response? I need to leave for my trip.

    JVZoo: Although they have good features, it's NOT so good if you're a vendor.

    Currently they use the customers you get (YOUR customers) to mail them offers of their TOP converting products (offers that you may not even promote / endorse).

    This is good for them as they get hot prospects for free and they make money by selling them other offers from their marketplace (although you're paying for their service) but not so good for you (you don't even get a penny for the sales they make - can post some saved stats from some tests i've made).

    This is an important thing to be considered.

      Hmmm... I did not know that, in fact I chose them because I thought they did not. E-Junkie does something similar, they manage your list and I didnt like that idea, so I chose JVZoo.

      BTW: Just to be clear, JVZoo did answer my support question.

    I need a system that will allow for the following.

    1. Reoccurring payments to affiliates promoting our products of which are monthly memberships
    2. Percent variable for payouts - 10% to 75% based on a few factors
    3. Tier payments - Based on affiliate pyramid - In other words if a member signs up another affiliate 5 to 10 deep
    4. Affiliate Coding for off line sales - This allows customer to insert a code for lining the sale to the sales person.
