Passionfruit 2.0 added a new shopping cart to your ad shop, where sponsors can now check out with multiple items. To accommodate this new feature, we changed the ad buying flow a bit and would love to document it here.
Our new ad shop lets sponsors add many ads, posts or services to their cart and check out with them all. Here’s the new flow, illustrated with Ciera Design’s excellent ad shop:
1. Add your selected options to your cart and click Proceed to checkout:
2. Review your cart and add promo codes or adjust quantities:
3. Submit payment info:
4. Important! You’re not done yet – your ads haven’t been sent to the blogger yet. You need to now set up your ads:
5. Clicking into each ad will give you the ad creation form and allow you to enter the required details. Renewals and ads that require no information can skip this step. Save and submit for approval, and you’re done!
If you’ve missed these last steps, you can find your Newly Purchased ads on your Passionfruit Campaigns dashboard. You can click into them and submit them now!
Sites, you can check your Site Dashboard to see if there are any sponsors who have bought ads but have missed this step. Send them a friendly reminder that our flow has changed a bit!
We’re still tweaking and improving this flow, and would love your feedback on it! Leave a comment below or text me at our new number, 678-773-6069.
