DAP Main Features

  • Made For WordPress: Works with WordPress like a dream!
  • Works on Non-WordPress Sites too (plain PHP/HTML web sites)
  • Sequential Content Delivery: We invented "Content Dripping"! This is where you can drip content little-by-little over time.
  • ContentResponder with Tru-Drip: Make individual pieces of Content drip, little by little, exactly on the day you want - just like an email autoresponder drips emails. Set a blog post or a file or a video to drip on Day #1, Day #7, Day #31, etc. Or you can set it to drip on a specific date - like 12/31/2010).
  • Built-in File & Download Protection: Protect regular files like .mp3, .zip, .flv, .zip, .exe. .pdf, .doc. .xls, .mpeg. .swf, .js. Even protect Images (.gif, .jpg, .png).
  • Tru-Protector: Can protect files anywhere on your web site - both within and outside the WordPress folders. And protects the original source files wherever they are located. No "fake" protection scheme by simply trying to "hide" the location of the file. You will not need another download protector ever again.
  • Amazon SES Integration: Save hefty monthly fees because you don't really need an email service like Aweber or GetResponse.
  • FREE Shopping Cart with On-Site Credit Card Processing for Stripe,Authorize.net and Paypal Website Payments Pro. Your customer never again has to leave your web site and go to a 3rd party site just to make a payment. Everything happens right within a page on your web site. And you don't even need to sign up for a third-party shopping cart just for accepting payments via Authorize.net or PWPP.
  • DAP Shopping Cart also has support for Coupon Codes for Stripe, Paypal Standard and Authorize.net. Also has built-in support for a whole range of other carts and payment processors like ClickBank, e-Junkie, Paypal Standard (Business & Premier) and many more.
  • Dime Sales: A "Dime Sale" is where you configure the price to go up every "X" number of sales (you can choose what "X" is). We've taken this one step further, and allowed you to hike up the price every "Y" days too! And of course, the price hike is not restricted to just "dimes" (10 cents).
  • Do 1-Click Upsells with Stripe, Authorize.net and Paypal Website Payments Pro and 2-Click Upsells with Paypal Standard using our separately-sold premium plugin, "Upsell-Tree Plugin for Paypal Standard"
  • Secure RSS Feeds: DAP makes your RSS feed secure, and protects them such that only members can access them. Each member gets their own special "Feed Key", and your entire RSS feed will change depending on who's viewing it, and how much content has been released to them so far. And the one really cool feature that is exclusive to DAP, is the built-in Feed-sharing protection even for your RSS feeds. If your members try to share their feed key with others, then their account will get LOCKED after a certain number of hits (you can specify how many is too many!)
  • S3MediaVault HTML5 Video Player Plugin to Protect Amazon S3-hosted Video, Audio and other file types stored on Amazon S3 - FREE with certain licenses
  • Instant Affiliates: Built-in affiliate program turns every member instantly into an Affiliate. They get their own, unique affiliate link that they can use to instantly start promoting your membership site the very instant they join. If you don't want all members to be affiliates, you can turn off this feature.

DAP has been successfully tested on sites in French, Italian, Spanish, Danish, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and many more that we're probably not even aware of.

  • Sneak-Peek: Show content from your blog posts up to the “More” tag. So when Google’s spider (or your visitor) arrives at your blog after you publish a new post, it/they will see a summary of the post, instead of being redirected to a login page. Extremely powerful SEO feature.

  • Synchronized Drip of both Content and Emails. Your Content, Emails and Files ALL can be synchronized to be delivered simultaneously.

  • Drip-Feed all types of Content: DAP is the only membership plugin available, that lets you drip WordPress (WP) Pages, WP Posts, WP Categories, HTML pages, PDF reports, Videos, Audio files, Zip files, even Images! Drip just about any kind of file with any type of extension.

Affiliate Module

  • Built-in Affiliate Module
  • Lifetime Commissions: Once a member is referred by an affiliate, affiliate gets paid (optionally, if that's what you want) commissions on all future products purchased by member. Proudly tell your affiliates that they will never get screwed out of a single referral payment! Your affiliates are going to love you for this, and promote your product even more passionately. So once your affiliate is locked into a user, all subsequent purchases from that user results in a commissions for that same affiliate. No other affiliate can steal it, even if the user clicks on a different affiliate's link before making subsequent purchases.
  • 2-Tier Affiliate Program: The 2-tier is optional. You can do just a 1-tier affiliate program.
  • "Affiliate Access Only" Membership Level: You can create a membership level just for Affiliates. You can provide affiliates with training and affiliate links, and you can set it up so that they don't get any of the other membership content. So affiliates can only promote your product and earn commissions, but cannot access site content. Very useful for Marketing-only or JV-only partners. So, If Francine Friend or Phil Partner is not yet a member of your system, you can give them (or invite them to get) free, affiliate-only access (without giving them access to your actual content, or requiring them to become a paying member), and after that, you can give them the affiliate credit. Or if that's not what you want, then give regular membership content access to affiliates as well.
  • Post-Cancellation Affiliate Access: Members who cancel, lose access to the content, but can still retain their Affiliate link and can continue to promote your web site.
  • Pay Affiliates both Per-Lead and Per-Sale
  • Pay One-time commissions, or Recurring commissions on all subscriptions
  • Global Affiliate Link Redirection: You can set what is the default landing page for all of the default affiliate links. So if you have an sale or promo going on, you can set all default affiliate links (that are not using the "Custom Link Redirection") to go to a different landing page. And then after the promo is over, you simply redirect them all back to your home page (or any page you choose).
  • Affiliate Commissions For Offline Orders: If an affiliate referred a buyer to your web site, and the buyer ended up paying offline, then you would never know that they were referred by an affiliate. Not so with DAP. Just enter the offline payment into DAP. And then the cookie that is still on the buyer's computer triggers the correct affiliate credit the next time the member logs in to your membership site.
  • Affiliate Commissions For Word-Of-Mouth Referrals: There are times when people do not necessarily click on an affiliate link before making a purchase. They may have just "heard" about your product from a friend. And they will sometimes tell you (on your checkout page, or via your contact-us form) that they heard about it from "Jill Friend" Or "Joe Partner". DAP allows you to manually give Affiliate credit to Jill Friend or Joe Partner for such purchases, even though there is no real affiliate link clicks in this case.
  • Anonymous Affiliate Tracking: If an affiliate referred a buyer to your web site, and the buyer ends up paying offline, then normally, you would never know that they were referred by an affiliate. Not so with DAP. After you enter the manual order, the cookie that is still on the buyer's computer then triggers the correct affiliate credit the next time they log in to your membership site.

Email Features

  • Send both regular Text-based as well as HTML Email with styling and images
  • Built-in Email Autoresponders: Ability to drip Emails. Integrated Email Autoresponder can send pre-scheduled emails to all users. Set up different autoresponder series for different products. No need for a 3rd party service like Aweber or GetResponse.
  • Use Amazon SES to skyrocket your delivery rates for your email autoresponders.
  • Built-in Email Broadcasting: Ability to broadcast emails to your members right from the DAP Admin Dashboard, no matter the size of your membership.
  • Integration with Aweber
  • Integration with GetResponse
  • Integration with 1ShoppingCart's Autoresponder
  • Integration with MailChimp
  • Integration with SendReach
  • Email & Job Queue: Having a job-queue is the only way to scale in size as your membership site grows to thousands of members, and as you start sending out tens of thousands of emails and your blog grows to thousands of blog posts. If a membership plugin doesn't require you to setup a "Cron Job", then it means your software cannot handle sending out a large number of emails from your server if your membership site grows to be a few thousand in size. Actually, without a cron job, your plugin can't even send out emails to a few hundred members without timing out and failing half way through! And yes, DAP is programmed with the highest scalability and robustness in mind, so DAP sends all broadcast and autoresponder emails via a job queue and uses a "Cron Job" to quietly process emails on the backend, hour after hour, without it affecting the speed or deliverability of your emails being sent out.
  • Email Throttling of Broadcast & Autoresponder Email: To make sure that you don't exceed your web host's hourly email-sending limits.
  • Broadcast Email to 3rd-Party Lists of Unlimited Size (import using CSV) [WARNING: Spam is Evil]
  • Import CSV list of members from third-party membership software or list software
  • Use 3rd-Party Email Servers - like Amazon SES, SMTP.com, AuthSMTP.com, Mandrill App or your own SMTP servers, to bypass your web host's email sending limits
  • Use Multiple Email Servers to speed up broadcasting to a large email list
  • 3rd-Party Email Notification: Extremely useful in notifying multiple folks - like your staff or business partners - of a sale
  • A Single Email can be part of Multiple Autoresponders: Extremely useful when you have multiple levels in your membership site, and wish to share some of the resources.
  • Repeating Autoresponder Emails: Create just one Autoresponder Email (say, an email that contains login and support info to the member) and schedule it go out repeatedly (Day #1, Day #32, Day #63, etc). No need to create a new email every time. Just add the same email multiple times and schedule it a recurring manner.

Forum Features

  • Integrates with all WordPress-based Forum Plugins
  • vBulletin Integration
  • XenForo Integration
  • WP-Forum Integration
  • bbPress Integration
  • Simple:Press Forum Integration
  • All WordPress-based forum plugins

Customization & Content Management

  • Partial Content Protection: Using DAP's powerful Shortcodes, you can protect different parts of a single post or page using shortcodes like...
  • In-Page Dripping: Using DAP Shortcodes, you can publish (say) 10 videos on one page, and you can enclose each video's embed code with a separate DAP Shortcode that has a different "Day" setting, so the very same page will show 1 video on Day 1, 2 videos on Day 2, 3 videos on Day 3, and so on.
  • You don't have to create multiple pages/posts just to drip multiple pieces of content. All of the content can now be dripped within just one "download" page, like this:
  • Generates Access Logs and Error Logs for archiving and troubleshooting
  • Advanced Access-Control: Access to content can be configured by Days or Dates
  • Product-Chaining: If someone buys Product A, then automatically given them access to bonus Product B. If someone cancels membership to Product A, then automatically remove their access to Product B. Extremely useful while giving automatic access to additional bonus products.
  • Advanced Member Management: Search for Users by Email, Last name, Member Id, Product name, User status and Product status. Easily modify their start dates, end dates, access levels (FREE or PAID), manually mark users as FREE or PAID, Rollback access to members by one recurring cycle (say, if a member is in month #6, and asks for a refund for previous month).
  • "Pause" Membership: A user's access PAUSES when they stop paying. So if they decide to take a break and come back after a while, they can pick up right where they dropped off, and not from where your other paying members (who continued to pay during that time) are.
  • Targeted Email Marketing: Broadcast Emails to a variety of groups of segmented members and non-members, like (but not limited to)...
  • Credit Store: Using this credits-based system - the Credit Store plugin, a premium plugin sold separately - your members can be awarded "X" credits with each monthly subscription payment, and they can use those credits to purchase any content that *they* are interested in for that month, instead of being force-fed content only in a certain order as decided by you, the admin.
  • Think of it like an "Audible.com" membership where members get credits, and can redeem those credits towards any audio book from the store. All credits roll-over each month, and if a product needs more credits than what they have currently, they can wait for the next month to accumulate more credits and then redeem those credits when they have enough. As Admin, you will be able to configure how many credits they get each month with each subscription payment, and also configure how many credits each "Product" (content) in your membership site is worth. Sold separately
  • Admin Follow-Up: Along with the Autoresponder Emails that you set up to go to each member on a specific day, you can additionally set up emails that get sent to you (as Admin) along with every individual member, so you can take some specific action.
  • Offline Marketing: If you are also doing offline marketing to your members, you can also add an autoresponder email to go out to you (the admin) every time a member gets to a certain point.
  • Even WordPress Can't Break DAP: Completely immune to new WordPress releases (DAP will not break due to a new version of WordPress being released)
  • Single Sign-On (SSO - a.k.a Global Login): Once your members log in to DAP via main login form, they are logged into all parts of WordPress - including the WordPress-based Forums. They don't need to re-enter their username and password each time they go to their WordPress profile, forums, Subscribe-to-comments plugin, etc.
