  1. Oh I see... So I'm primarily interested in using this for the webhook integration, but I really want to use it for multiple servers. Do you think you could develop a webhook integration to support multiple servers? I have multiple projects that I'd like to forward our support and suggestion threads to their respective servers. Also could you implement a functionality to also push updates for each forum post, not just new topics? That'd be great. Just let me know!
  2. Bump. Please fix this. Until this is fixed Patreon and other platforms will always remain a better subscription based platform than Invision Power Suite.
  3. I've attempted something like that, but it confuses users. They just want to track their subscription tier and subsequent rewards through a single simple portal, similar to Patreon. By creating a collection of products that all affect tier, that undermines that simplicity.
  4. I don't really know how to explain it to you, but I can assure you that wouldn't be an issue. Let me just try to explain it like this. We're a gaming community. We host servers, and we make games and mods for games. As a perk, we also bundle keys for games with our supporter ranks. So for instance, at Rank I (5$) you get a bundled key for Insurgency (roughly a 10$ game.) At Rank II (10$) you get a key for Space Engineers (roughly a 20$ game.) And so on. So if someone purchases a Rank I subscription, they get Insurgency. Then if they try to "upgrade" at a discounted price, they get Space Engineers for only 5$ instead of 10$. People exploit this to get cheaper keys, and farm our site for cheap keys... and then resell them on a greymarket site like G2A. I don't know why you can't just have it as an option. I can assure you we know our audience and our business. We would like to have a full price upgrade option. It is the only option for the kinds of products we are selling, and the services we are providing.
  5. Because if a user made a new purchase, the user would then be subscribed to two packages instead of upgrading or downgrading from the one they are on. I want them to be able to upgrade or downgrade their package, but I want them to pay full price so they can't exploit the system to receive discounted perks.
  6. Hi, I just wanted to make a post talking about a serious problem with IPS forums, and that is the credit card integration with Stripe for recurring payments. Currently purchasing a subscription through IPS with a credit card requires the user to manually store credit card information on the website. Not only is this option disabled by default for many users, but also in general... this undermines the reliability of recurring payments as a revenue source. Many of my users aren't even aware that they have not setup automated billing, and need to manually repay for a new invoice. When compared to Patreon, Twitch, Youtube, or even Facebook's recurring payment solutions... IPS Forums is sadly considerably less reliable simply because of this one issue. I would like to please ask for the option to require a user to store credit card information in order to purchase a recurring subscription. If a credit card has not been stored, I'd prefer to stop the user from purchasing a subscription what-so-ever... or if a credit card is removed from storage, I'd like to automatically unsubscribe that user from all services they are currently subscribed to. This is currently how Patreon/Twitch/Youtube/Facebook/etc all currently work, and if it would be possible to get the same functionality for IPS... I think I would use it more often. Thanks!
  7. I offer rewards for my different subscriber tiers. There should be the option to charge "full price" for an upgrade. Otherwise users are able to upgrade at no charge and then cancel their supporter tier before it renews in order to steal products from me. Without this I'm forced to not allow upgrades or downgrades, which is annoying. Please allow the ability to charge full price for upgrades and downgrades.
  8. Spotify integration appears to be broken again
  9. Also for some strange reason there is only one person per entire page... and also the approve button seems to be missing pretty often?
  10. It just says "deleted" under every submitted application form. Is this normal?
  11. The email blocking system is completely nonfunctional. We have been implementing obscene anti-spam measures, of which none are working what-so-ever.
  12. Not that I know of, where would I find those?
  13. I just had a Eureka moment... if we could just assign games to a product in Nexus, that would work. So for instance if you buy X product on Nexus, you get X games from (SD) Game Keys Store for "free." I think that would give us all the functionality we want, with only a really simple change.
  14. Could you PM me? We're actually working on adapting the system to Nexus now, and having your guidance would be invaluable =)
