    So on top of buying this plugin, you must also purchase an iCodes subscription?

      Yes, that’s correct…
      below quoted response from iCodes, they replied to similar question about subscriptions:

      You don’t pay iCodes to provide the feeds, you pay iCodes to standardize and tidy the feeds and remove the tons of junk. Just using an unedited network feed will cost you far more in lost visitors and commissions than the iCodes subscription costs.

      P.S. In which affiliate network(s) you are interested into?

      • alexander7567

        Well I agree with what you are saying.. Commission Junction has tons of junk. Some of the companies even includes the words “affiliate program” in them. But I am interested in CJ, LinkShare, Amazon and I will definitely expand. I will be keeping this plugin in mind when I start making a little more. Sounds like a very useful tool. Going to do a little more research into it.

          2 of 3 mentioned plugins (Commission Junction & LinkShare) are already available on this Marketplace. I also working now on creating their alternatives, and I think that I should get them released here in the end of week, “CJ Affiliate” nearly completed πŸ™‚

          • alexander7567

            So now that I have did a little more research on it, the clickshare feature makes it more feasible for starting out. But what is the difference between this plugin and appthemes version “icodes publisher”?

          • author
            meloniq

            Both created by me, but “iCodes Published” was made for AppThemes company, and since I’m not working anymore for AppThemes, I have no point in making “charity fixes” to previous plugin as I’m not the owner of it, so I created another one similar plugin “iCodes US” that is fully handled by me.

          • alexander7567

            And if I start out with click share and in a couple months upgrade to full, will it update the links where I am not sharing 20%?

          • author
            meloniq

            I’m not sure how this model works, if the imported links differ… reasonable would be for me if there is a redirection through the iCodes service, so the “click share” is counted equal and you can’t change it on your website (cheat it)… but how it works in reality, I don’t know.

          • alexander7567

            So I bought the plugin. Seems to work good. Only thing I have noticed so far is that there is no option to add sites I am joined, not joined, etc. It looks like it is adding everything.

            Assignment of stores that you joined for, you have to setup on iCodes website, in their user dashboard… all of the merchants that you setup there, will be later available in plugin “Stores Relations” configuration page.

          • alexander7567

            And there appears to be no store images added yet after 7000 coupons added. I am not using the VClogo service and I do have the import images checkmarked. Any ideas?

          • author

            I’ll test the store images import feature one more time on my website, and get back to you soon. For future reporting issues, please use the dedicated support forum: http://forums.appthemes.com/icodes-us-clipper/

        • alexander7567

          You can ignore that.. I have since then resolved the issue.

  • alexander7567

    Would it be possible where you could include a feature to where you can resync the current coupons? For example, if I upgrade my plan, my links will still be going through the clickshare feature of iCodes. Also take for example, I just reported a company named wrong and he fixed it. However, I will have to go through and manually update it.

      Thanks for suggestion, I have created ticket in the plugin internal project, and will consider adding this feature in the future releases of plugin.

  • alexander7567

    And is there any way you could support product images (or at least support the feed into the plugin) since iCodes does supply that data? I would rather advertise the image of the product in features than advertise just the store image.

    • author

      By default Clipper don’t displays images and galleries for coupons, and that’s also the reason why that feature wasn’t considered while creating this plugin.

  • jsmoekim

    does this plugin work for clipper child theme coup?

  • mslittlex

    Can you mention how you solved this issue? I have the same issue for a couple of months now, no idea how to fix.

  • cheapocoupon

    Does the icodes publisher setup new merchants on your website for you before importing the coupons and deals from the icodes database? If not how does it know to recognize the merchant? (I have had problems with that in the past).

    Also how does your plugin differ from the one offered by icodes on their site?
