What's Different This Year

Due to safety precautions surrounding the international Covid-19 pandemic and following best practices from the CDC, we are are proactively instituting the following health and safety protocols so customers can safely enjoy our files.  

1.  Purchase Limits -- Customers will be limited to the purchase of 2 toilet papers at anytime.  All other Marketplace purchases are unlimited.  

2.  Contactless Payments -- Customers will be encouraged to use contactless payments such as PayPal, Stripe, or Account Credit to check-out their files.  It's literally the same check-out as last year, or any other day of the year, or any Commerce transaction on any IPS community, but whatever.  We're going to give it a buzzy new name.       

3.  Curbside Pick-Up -- Files will be safely delivered to the download folder's digital curbside.  

4.  Mask Requirement -- All customers will be required to wear a mask while shopping.  Just for giggles.

It's great to see a sale running and so many plugin authors getting involved, but I think some of the authors need to think about their listing looks with 'black friday sale etc' put at the front of the title. This is what I see on the marketplace at the moment, so for most of the plugins I now have no idea what they are based on the titles, which is a bit frustrating and probably not ideal for making extra sales.

Agreed.  And since BF is now something of an institution for Invision (thank you @Joel R for the indefatigable annual promos!), I think it would be really cool if, instead of inserting "Black Friday SALE" or whatever into the app title, there should be a "BF" "bang" icon (or something) in the corner of the app's tile.  Something easily recognisable at first glance but which does not interfere with app details.  Even better if this could be automatically added by Marketplace if an app is modified specifically for BF...?

This is a great suggestion, and I listed it in past years as part of my 'best practices' for authors to consider.  However, it's ultimately up to the authors on whether or not they take the time to update each individual listing. 

Some other notes:

1.  I'm very supportive of IPS adding in a discount feature directly into Downloads, so it can be a programmatic feature consistently applied across the entire Marketplace.  

2.  The Marketplace thumbnails were broken for a long time.  Pretty sure devs just stopped trying to fight the broken thumbnails and gave up.  

3.  If you see any Marketplace thumbnails for Black Friday, they were probably from last year's sale LOL.  

4.  Ya'll know the best deals are in the back of the store anyways, right?

Yeah, l am fine with being strangled to the ground by cops, because l made the mistake of sculling a Zero coke on a rooftop, or l need to pledge allegiance to out dictator, while reciting war and peace and handing over my resume to grab a coffee, but tolerating my neighbors barking dog, no!
