IP.Nexus First Pre-Sale

We are very excited to be nearing the first public beta release of IP.Nexus! There has been much interest in the community for this new product and we cannot wait to get it out the door so everyone can start to enjoy its ecommerce, support, and other features.

As this product deals with monetizing your community, we are being very careful with its release. We do not want to release a product that might be unstable when it is designed to collect money on your behalf. Therefore, we are going to offer pre-sales for IP.Nexus in two phases. The first phase will be limited to 50 people and will be offered at a generous discount off the retail price. In return for this large discount, these 50 people will have access to pre-beta release of IP.Nexus and a private forum to give us feedback.

The final, retail price of IP.Nexus will be $74.99 plus an optional renewal of $35 every 6 months for continued support, services, and upgrades. For this first round of limited pre-sale, we will be offering the first 50 people to buy IP.Nexus a reduced up-front price of $50 plus no renewals for a full year.

Once this first limited, 50 sale offer is full we will not accept new sales until our second pre-sale which will come when the first, public beta is available. The second pre-sale will be offered to unlimited people for a short time so please keep an eye on our company blog for updates.

Please note that if you are one of the lucky 50 pre-orders, no ticket support will be offered. You are also going to be using pre-beta software so there will be issues and we will appreciate your feedback and bug reports.

To order, simply login to the client area and click New Purchase. You will see IP.Nexus under IP.Board Optional Addons. Once the first 50 are sold out it will disappear so act now! Once you purchase, login to the company forums with same you use in the client area and you will see an IP.Nexus testing forum appear under the Customer Lounge forum.

First 50 Sold Out

In just an hour we have sold out of the first 50 pre-sale licenses. Please keep an eye on our company blog for the public pre-sale coming soon. Thanks for your support!

wonderful for you guys that you sold out in under an hour, but it ever so slightly stuffs those of us in different time zones, who were asleep 7 hours ago and wake up to find we've missed out on the bargain pricing

You all have such little faith in us :lol: ... has IPS ever "stuffed" anyone?

There will be another pre-sale offer we just want to keep numbers low for this first go. We are being careful with IP.Nexus. It's taking money on your behalf so it needs to work as well as it can on release.

Keep in mind that anyone who bought into this sale gets NO SUPPORT - and it sounds like that includes into the 1 year of no renewal fees.

Only sleep on the weekends but be awake by 5am Monday morning (eastern time) and stay awake all week long, it's the best way to not miss out on any offers. :shifty:


Haha, try doing that after playing 8 hours of soccer on 90+ degree heat. Some of us can't sit on IPS site all day ;).

Anyway, I just hope that the next "pre-sale" thing doesn't force the rest of us to pay a lot more simply because we were asleep! :D
Looking forward to finally getting to use Nexus! :thumbsup:

Rumour has it that Charles is trying to persuade Matt to agree to give a 99c discount on the next beta - of course it is only a rumour ;)

It was launched when Charles (EST time) and I (UK time) had had discussed final points and set it up. No matter what time it had been done, somewhere in the world, people would have been asleep and it would have been really silly to try and do it at a time when either Charles or myself wouldn't be around.

Like Charles says, it's hardly a case of "Oh sorry, no Nexus for you guys". To be perfectly honest, I think most companies wouldn't have had a presale at all ;)

I think it's kind of flattering to see so many people so interested in an alpha product. You guys have a lot of faith in us! :D

It will be included in the $5 a month addon currently labeled as IP.Content only :)

This makes me extremely happy! You guys are the best!

Its become insanely tempting to move the iArcade community to IPS hosting. We rarely go over 10 online users, and we would save a fortune on Nexus & Downloads.
Since I already own an IP.Board license, we would have full source....

Oh, so tempting.

You know it. I highly recommend IPS to people I know who are building a community. Now, if IP.Content could be purchased and installed without the need of a forum, I would recommend you guys to everyone. But believe it or not, a forum is just not needed for every site.

Tell a friend!



Charles put a counter on the invites we do and give a discount to the top 3 inviters (you should include this feature in Nexus btw) :)

True, but you have to consider that IPS's office is in the United States and it would have made sense to announce it during a time that the rest of the country was awake. In the Pacific coast the announcement was posted during or prior to 5 AM. Businesses traditionally don't start until 9 AM. 12 Noon eastern time would have been a more appropriate time (which is 9 AM pacific). Even 11 Eastern would have been a little better.. At least by that time some would at least be having their morning coffee...

For me personally I wouldn't have been able to do it anyway. Just thought it was odd this was at 5 AM.
