Marketplace sales info

How long for us to have access to something like this on the picture bellow? That is not something hard to make! I want to be able to offer discount for those that are buying my system on Marketplace, but I don’t have any info about it at all.
Just add another tab next to “Billing history” inside “ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT” account page. You guys have the data, have the place to show it, have already a mecanism (order history) very close to it. What is missing?

currently what kind of information do you have access to ? (my pack is still in the marketplace queue :frowning: )

None! No info at all. :frowning:
I only know that I have a few sales because the buyers sent me emails.

Hey Alex3D,

We are working on a way of implementing this type of real-time sales information, but it’s still being developed and may take some time to get going. What we are currently doing is a monthly statement where you will receive an email with sales information. Your asset pack was just recently added a couple of weeks ago, so it may be another week or two before you get an update. Sorry it’s inconvenient right now, but we are working on the solution.

Right now you receive a sales report via email in the form of a spreadsheet once you are paid your royalties which works fine. Epic is most likely working on a sales tracking control panel but there is no info in regards to this as of now as far as i know.

A sales tracking system doesn’t really serve any purpose other than consolidating data and relieving the workload of Epic’s accounting department. Knowing how many items you’re selling will not help you sell more items and since you can’t links directly to the marketplace right now you can’t run marketing campaigns or use the data in any way that will be beneficial to you so i don’t see it as a necessity at the moment.

Once bundles, discounts, etc. are implemented then it would make more sense to have a control panel from which to manage all of this.

The Marketplace has only been up for about 2 months so I’m sure it will be improved considerably over the next few.

I received my statement almost exactly 45 days after my assets were added to the marketplace and then i was paid within 2 days of receiving the statement.

Once the control panel is launched it will be great but for now the monthly statements and payout process works fine.

Since you can’t really use any of the sales information to improve your sales at the moment having real-time tracking won’t serve much of a purpose unless you can control bundles and discounts or be able to link directly to the marketplace items for marketing campaigns.

Thanks for letting us know.

Well, I am only selling the basic version of my system on marketplace. On my site I am selling as well the PRO version of my system. I want to offer the marketplace buyers, a discount on the PRO version. But I can only do that if I know who is buying on marketplace. :wink:

Anyway, they will have to wait…

How about sticking a .txt file in your Asset with a secret code for a discount on your site? Something like “ALEX3DROCKS” or something, which you change with every version release to minimise pirates taking advantage :>
