Advertising

Built-in advertising support

Invision Community supports major ad networks via simple script inclusion, with several predefined ad locations to choose from including header, sidebar, after the first post in a topic and more.

Plus, there's also a comprehensive self-service advertising system, allowing users to purchase ad space in the community just like any other product, based on clicks or impressions.

Donation System

Donate towards community goals

Let users show their support for your community or chosen causes by using the built-in Donation tools to contribute towards a goal. Easily show progress towards each goal with a sidebar block, or in the client area.

Users can donate by checking out as normal, or use any existing account credit.

Storefront & Transactions

Sell virtually anything

Invision Community makes it simple to add a storefront to your community. Sell physical products, digital files, subscriptions and more. And, because it's integrated with the community, content like user reviews are shown not only with the product, but in the user's profile, activity stream and site-wide search.
