News

We are very happy to announce the latest platform update - live as of now. Read on below for the most important changes and learn how you can utilize the new features to enhance your shop.

General

  • New: Attributes, Attribute Groups and Attribute Sets (SILVER and GOLD)

    It is now possible to define custom attributes and arrange them in groups and sets (multiple groups). Each attribute can have a custom data type, validation logic and may be displayed in the shop front end or even be used for searching, sorting and filtering.

    For example, if you sell educational content, you can use attributes to differentiate content for pupils and teachers, manage age groups, link to exams, etc.

  • Updated: Category Management

    The category management has been completely rewritten. It now supports unlimited sub categories, arrange via drag and drop, temporary disable, display of number of contents and much more.

Backend

  • Analytics

    • New: Native Google Analytics Support

      It is now possible to use Google Analytics simply by entering the Google Analytics Tracking ID under the FlickRocket Theme Settings. FlickRocket will automatically create and embed the appropriate code in the shop pages.

    • New: Goal and E-commerce tracking

      If the native Google Analytics support is active, you can enable FlickRocket to automatically transmit E-Commerce conversion data using the actual sales information (quantity, items, pricing).

    • Updated: Generic conversion tracking

      Goal and generic conversion tracking is now possible using the newly introduced tracking page which is temporary displayed for up to 10 seconds after each purchase.

  • Accounting

    • Change: Quickbooks export now available from SILVER

      The Quickbooks export module is now available also for SILVER accounts at no additional charge and has been updated to work with the new tax options.

Frontend

  • SEPA Payment Processing (European customer only)

    FlickRocket now supports payments based on the SEPA (Single-Euro-Payments-Area) guidelines. SEPA is a payment-integration initiative of the European Union for simplification of bank transfers which enables customers to make cashless euro payments using a single bank account and a single set of payment instruments. It will become mandatory for businesses in 2014.

  • Attribute based filters

    Use your custom defined attributes to let customer search, sort or filter your shop items based on individual criteria.

    Sales confirmation emails can now include an individually designed invoice in PDF format as attachment.

We are very happy to announce the release of new Flux Players for Windows, MacOSX, iOS and Android.

Note: On iOS7 devices the pre-population feature requires an upcoming iOS update to become active.

 

We are very happy to announce the release of the new FlickRocket Content Tools for desktop and browser based uploads. See below what this means for you:

  • New: Automatic trailer generation (optional)

    You have video content but have not prepared a trailer yet? No problem, FlickRocket can now auto generate a trailer from your content using the first 10% or 1000 seconds max.

  • New: Upload trailers to YouTube (optional)

    Do you use YouTube as part of your marketing? Life has just gotten easier for you - FlickRocket can now upload your trailers into your YouTube channel as part of the FlickRocket upload.

    This feature is currently only available for web based uploads and FlickRocket Content Tools for Windows

  • New: Video trailer option for additional content types

    The uploader can now be used to add video trailers to other project types, e.g. physical DVDs, which you are selling via FlickRocket.

  • Enhanced: Modify trailers for existing projects

    The uploader now gives you more control about managing trailers for existing projects. Keep original, replace or remove right from the uploader.

  • Enhanced: More sanity checks for content

    The uploader detects more file defects at the beginning of the upload, alerting you in time to fix the problem before uploading.

    Fix for a problem which could cause invalid projects when different content type files were uploaded into one project.

  • Fix: Browser based uploader will not enter sleep mode
