DAP Starters – FAQ
>> 1. I want to have an Add to cart button for each product. I have a PayPal business account that I want to use. I want to have DAP host the add to cart buttons. Where do I put my paypal info in at? < <
See – http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/integrate-dap-generated-buttons-with-paypal/
>> 2. Also it would be nice to be able to set up an OTO/up sale for each product. The OTO will be the same for every product. < <
Add a redirect tag as shown below to the button code generated by dap.
Say the OTO page is http://yoursite.com/otopage, then add the following redirect tag to your button code that you generate in DAP:
(Note: replace yoursite.com above with the name of your site. )
>> 3. After the customer makes the purchase I want them added to my Aweber auto responder. < <
Please see: http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/aweber-integration/ For paid products, always integrate DAP -> Aweber.
For free products, you can use either aweber webform -> DAP OR DAP direct signup form -> aweber.
If you want to use aweber -> DAP, use http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/use-aweber-webform-to-signup/
If you want to use DAP -> AWeber, use http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/aweber-integration/
To create a DAP free/direct signup form, use this –
>> 4. People sign-up with their email through an Aweber sign-up form. At the end of a few dripped emails using Aweber they can buy a low-priced product. Whats the best way to set this up ? <<
Create a free product in DAP.
Use Aweber webform -> DAP to integrate aweber free list to DAP free product.
When the users signup using the aweber free form, they will also be signed up in DAP.
Encourage these users to update their paypal email address in their DAP userprofile after they become member that way when they become paid members (applies to payment via Paypal only), DAP will add the paid product under the same user account under which they had free product.
See – http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/use-aweber-webform-to-signup/
Create the paid product in DAP.
Integrate DAP with the payment processor so when they purchase the product, DAP will be notified and the user account will be created in DAP.
Update the 3rd party notification field in DAP products page to notify the paid aweber list.
Add product chaining rule in DAP to remove access from free product when the user gets access to the paid product.
Add rule in aWeber to automatically remove user from free list when they get added to paid list.
When the user makes purchase, DAP will add the new product to their existing account, remove free product from their account, add them to the new aweber list and aweber will remove them from the free list.
>> 5. There are two subscription products: Monthly ($10, recurring) and Annual ($100, Recurring). A subscriber tries Monthly for two month and then decides to “upgrade” to an Annual subscription, which is cheaper in the long-run. Is there a way to automate this for the subscriber’s choice?
Create 2 products in dap – monthly subscription and annual subscription product
The recurring settings for monthly will be as shown below:
The recurring settings for annual will be as shown below:
Setup product chaining rule in dap to automatically remove user’s access to monthly product if they subscribe to annual.
1) user purchases monthly product
They will get 30 days access initially. When the next payment comes in at the end of the month, dap will extend access by another 30 days.
2) now after the user purchases monthly product, they want to upgrade to annual payment option.
They will click on the buy button to complete purchasing the annual subscription.
DAP will now give them access to the annual product with a start date of current date and end date of 365 days from today.
The product chaining rule will trigger and dap will remove this user’s access to monthly product. So now in manage users page, you will see the user is tied to annual product and not the monthly product.
You do need to take some manual action in this scenario. You will have to login to the payment gateway (authnet or paypal) and remove the users old subscription to monthly). DAP will not automatically remove user’s monthly subscription profile in the payment gateway.
>>6. How do i make sure the email drip feed via DAP autoresponders are working?
Add a new user via DAP admin panel
Wait for the top of the hour for cron to run
Then check the user’s email box at the top of the hour to see if the day-1 drip emails went out.
If the user is on say day 2 of membership… then they will receive the day 2 drip emails at midnight (server time) because when the cron runs for the first time for that day (at midnight), it will pick up all users that are on day 2 of their membership and send out day 2 emails.
>> 7. All of the products are in one file called DLmmmDL. All files in this folder are zipped. The file is located where dap was installed. I want this file and the files in it protected. < <
If you have a wordpress site, ideally you should upload the files that you want to protect under /wp-content/uploads folder. You can create a subfolder under uploads and upload the files there. DAP looks under /wp-content/uploads folder by default for file protection. After uploading files under /wp-content/uploads, go back to dap products page and protect the full URL of each zip file. See – http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/protecting-regular-site-files/ >> 5. I want an affiliate section to where people can sign up and sell my products. I dont see where to create a link in my footer that says affiliates. < < You can update the theme footer to include the hyperlink of your affiliate signup page. See – http://www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/instant-affiliates/ >> 6. Of course it needs to send an email to the customer once they pay so they can download their products. <<
