In our last article, we talked about how to create special customer groups, in order to offer premium pricing for customer loyalty. If you’ve got a lot of products in your nopCommerce-based store, this could become problematic if you’re wanting to provide discounts on many products. It may be better to simply offer discounts on a category basis; however, there’s still the matter of offering the price breaks to your most loyal customers only. Let’s take a look at how we can offer that via nopCommerce.
We’ll use the same special customer group we created in the last article; if you’re coming directly to this article first, I recommend referencing the steps highlighted there.Learn More

It’s not unusual to offer special discount pricing to preferred customers; a perfect example is the pricing available to Amazon Prime subscribers. With nopCommerce, it’s easy to set special pricing discounts for your preferred customers, and increase customer loyalty/return business.
Let’s start by creating your Preferred Customer role; log into your nopCommerce instance, and in Admin, hover over “Customers”, and select “Customer Roles”. Click the “Add New” button at the upper right; give your new role a name (I went with “Super Special Customers”), and a system name (no spaces). Click “Save”.Learn More

One of my new mojoPortal clients plans to add premium content (videos, e-books) to her website as her business development practice grows and expands. That’s actually a very easy requirement to fulfill with mojoPortal and the Site Membership Pro plugin; let’s step through how I’ll set that up for her mojoPortal-driven site.
First of all, we’ll set up the client’s mojoPortal-driven site, and plan out what kind of exclusive content she wants to be able to offer her users. By creating free “premium” content, she can capture contact information from interested prospects, and use the Newsletter feature in mojoPortal to promote the monetized content afterwards.Learn More

Recently, I was contacted by a developer specializing in .Net, who is fairly new to mojoPortal. He asked me if it’s possible to be profitable supporting an open-source application like mojoPortal; my unequivocal response is “Yes, quite well.” Stick around – after the break, I’ll outline some of the ways that supporting open-source can generate revenue.
Now, it should be prefaced that it won’t happen overnight; you will get pushback from some members of the community, who feel that because the core application (mojoPortal) is free, and open-source, all utilization of it should be free as well. That’s not an unusual perspective for any open-source community, whether it’s WordPress, Joomla!, Dot Net Nuke, or any other application. However; if you talk to most of the actual core developers of these applications, you’ll hear a different story. Every one I’ve talked to has openly acknowledged that their application is used as a tool by for-profits, and indeed in most cases actively encourage it. Some offer premium support packages and sponsor ships to support ongoing development (nopCommerce), while others sell premium add-ons directly from the core development team (mojoPortal).Learn More
