Add Free Offers and Custom URL Tracking to Your Exchange Store


Two new Exchange Add-ons just arrived to add new features to your store: Free Offers and Custom URL Tracking, only available in the Exchange Pro Pack, the Plugin Dev Suite and the Toolkit

The Free Offers Add-on for Exchange

The Free Offers Add-on allows you to turn any product in your store into a free offer.


Just upload and activate the Free Offers Add-on from Plugins > Add New. The Free Offers Add-on adds a new tab to the Advanced Settings section of the Add Product Page.

From here, you can apply settings to your product to hide the product price in your Exchange store and product page (so it won’t show $0.00). You can also customize the Buy Now and Purchase button text.

On the front end of the site, customers will see this product without a price and with the custom button text.

The Free Offers Add-on partners perfectly with other Exchange Add-ons like Customer Pricing (to collect donations), Guest Checkout (so customers can checkout without being required to create an account or log in) and MailChimp (to add a newsletter signup to the checkout process).

Here’s the Free Offers Add-on in action (with Guest Checkout enabled).


The Custom URL Tracking Add-on for Exchange

The Custom URL Tracking Add-on allows you to add custom URLs to products and to track usage.


From Plugins > Add New, upload and activate the Custom URL Tracking Add-on.

The Custom URL Tracking Add-on will add an additional tab to the Advanced Settings section of the Add Product page.

Add any custom URLs or redirects you want for the product. By checking redirect, the custom URL will work to redirect visitors to the default product URL.


Unique Views for URLs

Exchange will handle tracking these links and display the unique view info in the section below your URLs.

Apply Custom Builder Layouts to URLs

iThemes Builder users will find an additional option to choose a custom Builder Layout for the custom URL (if not redirecting).

This could be really helpful for creating different landing pages for products with Builder Layouts and track visits from various offers, campaigns or mediums.
