Developer Tools: Quick ID Access

Screen Shot 2018-12-08 at 12.12.05 PM.png

It's now easier than ever to get IDs you need around the CubedPay interface. Simply expand the Developer Info section to reveal the ID of the current item you're looking at. With a click you can copy it and get back to coding.

Currently quick ID access is available for both products and pages, and we'll be expanding it as necessary.

Dashboard Twitter Feed & Webstore Toasts

Webstore Toasts

Screen Shot 2018-11-28 at 9.18.24 AM.png

Webstores can now display notification toasts in the corner of your screen. For now this is just used as a heads up when you add an item to your cart, but we'll be expanding functionality in the near future.


Dashboard Twitter Feed

Screen Shot 2018-11-28 at 9.20.04 AM.png

We deliver a lot of our news and updates on Twitter (and you should totally follow us if you don't already!). To improve communication and make things easier to follow, we've added our Twitter feed to the homepage of store dashboards.

No worries, new releases and updates will always be announced on our changelog, right here!

Vanity URLs

VanityURLs.png

Friendly page URLs, here we come!

CubedPay pages now support the ability to set a vanity URL.

Previously, a page link may have looked something like this:

https://example.cubedpay.com/page/page_HPpUJTuKxrNL1qygKDfBgUEhitG

This is super unfriendly, long, and is unlikely to get high SEO rankings. Now with vanity URLs, your pages can look like this:

https://example.cubedpay.com/page/coins

It's super easy to setup!

Using Vanity URLs

  1. Sign into CubedPay
  2. Select your webstore
  3. Select Pages in the navigation
  4. Select an existing page, or create a new one.
  5. Enter whatever you like in the new Vanity URL field.

Screen Shot 2018-11-20 at 2.53.29 PM.png

That's all there is to it! Your page will now have a much friendlier and much better looking link when used on your webstore.

Conditional Products

ConditionalProducts.png

Require other items, first.

Products can now require the purchase of other items prior to unlocking for your customers.

Setup

  1. Sign into your CubedPay store.
  2. Select Products
  3. Select Edit for the product that you want to make conditional.

Add a New Condition

When defining a new condition, you have the choice between two types: Requires any and Requires one. Say we want to sell a Magic Treasure Chest product, but only if someone has bought one of our Gold products before:

  • 50 Gold
  • 500 Gold
  • 5,000 Gold

I would select Requires Any from the condition type, then enter the 3 products that I want to require one of, then I'd click Add. The product will no longer be buyable for customers if they don't meet the requirements.

Multiple Conditions

Let's suppose I want to sell an Ultimate Treasure Chest for those that have purchased all gold packages before. For this, I'd add a new Requires one condition that requires the 50 Gold product, then click add. I'd repeat this process 2 more times for the two other products.

Store Display

Customers won't see your conditional products until they've satisfied the requirements you've defined in the dashboard. (TIP! This requires that they be signed into the CubedPay account that they used to buy the item.)

If you're signed in as a Store Manager, you'll see all conditional products, we'll just show a handy lock icon next to ones that are private:

slack-imgs-3.png

Conditional products can be used to offer secret packages for dedicated players, "rank upgrade" packages that are offered as a discount for previous rank owners, or special beta access to premium members. Whatever it be, we're sure it'll be great!

Text Alignment & Color Scheme Improvements

Text Alignment

Using markdown, you can now align text and images in your product descriptions and webstore homepage.

You can use either the alignment buttons in the text editor, or use the following tags:

  • ->text<- for center alignment
  • ->text-> for right alignment

Import and Export Color Schemes

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 12.01.05 PM.png

You can now share your color schemes with other stores. Just click the Import/Export Appearance button at the bottom of the Color Schemes tab. Click Copy to get your current scheme, or paste in another color code string into the import box to set it as your own.

Saving and Loading Color Schemes

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 12.02.18 PM.png

You can now save multiple color scheme presets to your store and switch to them on the fly. Just name it below the color picker and click either Update or Save as New. Now making that holiday color scheme for your store is as easy as just swapping to another pallet!
