DAP v4.7 Beta

Share this

Hey Dappers!

We hope you enjoyed our drip tease (8 pre-launch videos) of the DAP 4.7 features  🙂 .  We also know that you are eagerly awaiting the DAP 4.7 release announcement!

The wait is now over!

We’re super thrilled to announce the BETA release of DAP v4.7 and LiveLinks v1.11.

An incredible amount of time and effort went into this one – so we’re really excited about this new release!

There are a ton of new features and improvements that will make DAP much more fun to use.

PLEASE NOTE:

The updates are free for DAP users with current access to upgrades & support.

If your access has expired, you might want to consider signing up for our unbeatable, Platinum Membership (a.k.a “Netflix of Plugins“).

If you are a PLATINUM member, you will receive FREE access to all our Wicked Cool Plugins and DAP Upgrades/Support for life.

OR you may renew your yearly access to DAP Upgrades/Support here.

Please note that this is a BETA release.

If you have a LIVE Web Site with active subscriptions and members, then hold off on installing DAP 4.7 BETA until we release the FINAL version in about 3-4 weeks. But if you’d rather not wait and decide to go ahead with the upgrade, please know that we are here to help!

Also, if you want us to work with you on a call to upgrade and test, you can purchase 1-on-1 time with us.

These new features, updates and integrations were based on your invaluable feedback – so thank you for that.

BTW,  NOW is a great time to promote DAP as an affiliate! DAP is now available for purchase as a subscription. You will earn ongoing lifetime recurring commissions for the subscription signups!

Now without further ado, let’s dive right in and take a look at what our awesome new DAP 4.7 release offers:

DAP Doctor has arrived! Meet the Doc and you will leave with a smile 🙂

We are constantly looking to improve DAP and make it even better for our customers. Based on our experience working with thousands of customers, we usually know just by your problem description, what might have caused the problem. So with the upcoming release of DAP, we’re taking tech support to a whole new level, and we’re launching a fully automated, game-changing new tool for DAP that will allow you to troubleshoot various site related issues – like member access, content protection, email, caching – all by yourself, with just a few clicks, without ever having to open a support ticket.With this new tool (watch the video to find out more!) we’re betting that our support ticket response times are going to get slashed drastically – which means less waiting for you to hear back from us – because this powerful do-it-yourself tool will let you troubleshoot many issues instantaneously as they arise.

This tool is ONLY available to our Platinum members but as a small token of our sincere appreciation for you, as well as for all DAP users who have stayed with us for years, and have continued to support us with your purchases and renewals, we are giving it away to all current DAP users for FREE! As long as your access to DAP support/upgrades is current (click here to find out), you will have access to this new awesome tool called “DAP Doctor”.

With DAP Pay, you can do member’s area upsell for existing members with 1-click of buy button. No CC or Billing info required.

Very powerful stuff!

You can use DAP Pay to sell new products, product renewals, or even membership renewals and upgrades with just 1-click. You can publish these special buy buttons on ANY member page. And even if someone has already been a member for weeks or months, they can still purchase your new product or membership upgrade with just 1 single Click, without having to re-enter all of their credit card or billing information. DAP does not store CC info in the database so you do not have to worry about PCI compliance issues.

The only prerequisite is that the existing member should have purchased atleast one product using DAP Shopping Cart => Stripe on your site.

If you do not use the DAP shopping cart integrated with Stripe to sell your products, then this feature is not applicable to your site.

Have you heard about ActiveCampaign? If not, you might want to do so because they have fast gained reputation as one of the best ‘Email Marketing & Automation’ platform that helps connect your email campaigns, social marketing and website traffic.

We have had a number of Dappers request ActiveCampaign integration recently, so we’re happy to announce that this integration is included in DAP v4.7.

The email integration will work both ways:

DAP => ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign => DAP.

“I haven’t even purchased DAP yet but I’m already promoting it to others on the Xenforo Forum”

See here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/using-with-dap.84511/

Cheers! Van

We have added full-fledged and seamless integration with XenForo in DAP 4.7.

You can control forum access at ‘membership-level’. Your users will be automatically logged-in to the forum when they login to DAP.

You will love this integration.

If you are selling primarily digital products, then you probably won’t need WooCommerce. The DAP Shopping Cart (it’s FREE with your DAP purchase) itself is very powerful, supports a wide range of payment processors, and also supports 1-Click Upsells, Member’s-area Upsells (DAP Pay) and Coupons.

(BTW, we are working on a NEW responsive template for the checkout page that will make the DAP Cart even better! Can’t wait to release it!)

However, if you are selling physical products, need an eCommerce store and store front, WordPress themes that come integrated with a store, need physical-product features like color, quantity, state and sales taxes, quantity discounts, VAT, size, etc – then WooCommerce is the answer!

DAP is probably the only membership plugin that supports auto-login with CB.  Unlike other membership plugins where the users *must* click on the ‘Access My Purchase’ button after their purchase or risk ending up with ‘no membership account’, you do NOT have to worry about this if you use DAP.

We have a backdoor that ensures that users will get instant access to their main purchase as well as any upsell purchases even if they closed the browser without clicking on the access my purchase link.

See this document for more details

 

DAP is one of the few membership plugins (or maybe the only one) that supports auto-login with JVZoo. Your users will have instant access to all of the purchased products/content regardless of whether they purchased one product or multiple products (upsells) in your sales funnel. The users will NOT have to wait for a welcome email with their login credentials.

We have a backdoor that ensures that users will get instant access to their main purchase as well as any upsell purchases even if they closed the browser  without clicking on the access my purchase link.

When a user completes purchase of your WSO using WSO Pro, DAP will automatically create the membership account, allow user access to the product and send out the thank-you email configured under the DAP products page => Notification tab with the login details.

But your users do NOT have to wait for the welcome email.  DAP will also display the membership credentials (login url, username and password) on the final landing page after WSO Purchase is complete, to the buyers.

If you are on DAP version 4.7 (or above),  you can define how you want the username to be generated for your members. It’s configurable.

Please watch the video here for more details.

DAP will use the options you select for username generation instead of defaulting it to firstname + lastname.

This will apply to Free Registration as well as Paid Products. DAP will use the generated username to sync to WP and to the FREE WP based forums like BBPress, Buddypress, Mingle, SimplePress etc. This should eliminate all ‘username conflict issues causing WP sync to fail’ going forward.

If you are on DAP version 4.7 (or above),  make sure to check out the new search and email tracking features we have added to the DAP System => Job Queue.

Please watch the video here for more details.

 

In DAP 4.6.2, we added  a user-facing ‘subscription cancellation’  feature for transactions processed by Paypal/Authorize.net.
 
In DAP 4.7, we have added  a  user-facing ‘subscription cancellation’  feature for transactions processed by Stripe.
 

See this document for more details

 

DAP Admins will no longer have to login to Authorize.net or Paypal or Stripe to cancel a user’s subscription.

Click on the transaction Id hyperlink in DAP Users->Manage page to get to the Edit Transaction page.

If the payment transaction is from Paypal or Authorize.net or Stripe.com, and if it’s a subscription product, a new CANCEL button will show up right next to the Refund button in DAP Admin -> Edit Transactions page.

See this document for more details

 

In DAP 4.7, we have added a new access expiration option.

You can now set the Expiration Action in DAP Products page -> Cancellation & Expiration tab toSet end date to previous day”. It will allow DAP to move forward the ‘access window’ while making sure that the user’s access is still expired. This way if the same user re-signs, their access will be current and not stuck in the past.

We have implemented this feature using the DAP hourly cron. The hourly cron will automatically trigger the ‘expiration action’ on the expired users of the products. We recommend that you enable this option ON a test product first. DO NOT use this option on an actual live product until you fully test it. Create a new user account using dap admin => add users page and give the user access to a test product. Then update the user’s access start/end date manually to a date in the past (expire the user’s access) to test the expiration feature.  Enable the expiration action to ‘Set end date to previous day’ for this product. Then at 10:00 PM in the night, the cron will get a list of users with expired access to products and it will apply the ‘expired action’ set for each product.

If you are on DAP version 4.7 (or above),  you can integrate DAP with an affiliate network called Clicksure.

The integration is very straightforward and will work for one-off as well as subscription products.

DAP can process NEW SALE, REBILL, REFUND and CANCEL transactions from Clicksure.

See this document for more details

 

If you are on DAP version 4.7 (or above), you can integrate DAP with Ultracart.

UltraCart is a sophisticated, top-tier e-commerce platform for online sales of products, digital content and subscriptions.

UltraCart integrates with your entire ecommerce business, including shopping cart, payment processing, marketing & affiliate management, shipping systems, product fulfillment, and accounting systems.

If you want to use UC as your ecommerce platform and DAP as your membership plaform, you will be able to do that using this new integration between UC => DAP.

Maropost is an email marketing platform that contains everything you need to launch email campaigns that reach a deep level of engagement with customers.  Maropost optimizes and automates email campaign management.

DAP integrates with Maropost. This integration is included in DAP 4.7.

An awesome new plugin from our WickedCoolPlugins.com family. Explore new ways of marketing and partnerships with this plugin!

It opens up a lot of opportunities for marketers because now you are no longer restricted to giving away bonuses only from your own site. You can give away special bonuses from multiple DAP websites, including JV/Partner sites by connecting them together with this plugin.

Watch this video to learn more about this plugin.

Please NOTE: This is a FREE plugin but it’s ONLY available to our Platinum (Monthly) Members. It’s not available to other accounts. As of now, we do not plan on selling it separately. We also plan on giving away this plugin as a FREE bonus to those who renew their DAP Support/Upgrades access for Multiple years (5 or 10 years) within the next 72 hours.

DAP2DAP is now available for download from the WickedCoolPlugins.com member’s area.

NOTE: If you don’t see the latest files in the member’s area, that’s probably because your 1 year of free access to DAP Support & Upgrades have expired, and you can renew here.

  1. Sorry, sort by columns in Users=>Manage page is not part of DAP 4.7. But we hear you and we will try to add this feature soon.

  2. Hi Veena,
    Great new release. I’m looking forward to deploying 4.7. I’m using HeadwayThemes.com to design my site. Can you reply to let me know if you are aware of any incompatibilities with Headway Themes. It’s a drag-n-drop website designer.

    Also, if you have some documentation about known incompatible plug-ins, themes and add-ons, that would save time for all. Thank you.

  3. Hi Peter,

    >>Hi Veena, Great new release. I’m looking forward to deploying 4.7. I’m using HeadwayThemes.com to design my site. Can you reply to let me know if you are aware of any incompatibilities with Headway Themes. It’s a drag-n-drop website designer.<< Yes, DAP works with Headway themes. We are not aware of any current compatibility issues. >>Also, if you have some documentation about known incompatible plug-ins, themes and add-ons, that would save time for all. << It's very hard to maintain a list like this because there are thousands of plugins and tons of themes. Things might not work today with a plugin but it might automatically work a few days later because the plugin developers might have released a new version. We can't keep track of all the changes that take place in the incompatible plugins/themes. If we have a list like this, we will not be able to keep it up-to-date. DAP works with most well-written themes and plugins. The conflict is usually caused by Javascript or CSS issues in poorly coded plugins/themes and very rarely by DAP. If it's caused by DAP, we try to address it and fix it quickly. Hope this helps. Thanks, Veena

  4. Hey Veena,

    Looking forward to using the new upgrade. How can I access the DAP2DAP Integration plugin? You had stated earlier that you would give me access to the plugin since I just renewed for 5 years last month.

    By the way thanks again for giving me access to the DAP2DAP plugin, you guys rock.

    Susan

  5. Hi Susan,

    Please open a support ticket with us (digitalaccesspass.com/support) and we will let you know how you can access the dap2dap plugin. BTW, you will have to upgrade to DAP 4.7 first to use the plugin.

    Thanks again for renewing your support / upgrades access for multiple years. It means a lot to us when customers renew for multiple years because it shows the kind of trust they have in our software and service.

  6. Awesome work!
    I’m thinking of diving into the BETA as I want the active campaign option, do you have a known bugs page you’ll be updating?
    Thanks,
    Jared.

  7. Hi Jared,

    No bugs so far. We do not expect any major issues with this release. We have tested it pretty well. The more users help with beta testing, the faster we can make this release final!

    If it’s a live site, its better you wait a week or 2 but if you can’t wait that long, we are here to help.
    We will try to resolve beta issues quickly.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  8. Yes, DAP integrates with Learndash and WP courseware. You can drip the courses you create in learndash or wp courseware (custom post type) in DAP content responder section. Make sure to enable syncing between DAP and WordPress.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  9. Excellent news, Veena.

    I can’t wait to see the stable version released and benefit from the new features like DAP Doctor, the improved username generation, and of course the excellent JVZoo integration.

    BTW, I’ve written a “case-study” style blog post on how we have made use of one of your most powerful features, the [DAP] shortcode in conjunction with OptimizePress 2 to create very advanced download pages and membership areas and increase our profits.

    I think it’s an interesting read, you can access it by clicking here.

  10. Hi Wendy,

    We were going to release 4.7.1 tomorrow morning but we decided to move it to early next week because of the holidays.

    We will give 4.7.1 a week to settle down and then make it FINAL. So the 4.7 release should become final on Dec 11th or 12th.

    Thanks,
    Veena
