New Extension Releases

We have released six new extension plugins. All of these are for the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin but we’ll have more released for our other plugins soon. Have a look at our new extension plugins:

Deal Launched with Dealotto

Dealotto approached us recently with a proposal to launch a deal with them.

They wanted to market and sell our WordPress plugins bundle in a “lotto” style contest where you have the chance of paying anything between $0 and $39 for the bundle.

We discussed the terms and conditions and launched the deal. It has been running for 6 days now as you might have seen on our Facebook page and Twitter.

You can still engage in this deal and pay $39 for our WordPress plugins bundle. That is 60% off the original retail price of $99 for the bundle. Go ahead and get your deal!

We will soon be launching deals with Mighty Deals and Webmaster Deals as well to give users the best possible packages at the lowest possible price.

New Documentation Design

We’ve been working on a new design and interface for our online documentation to make it more usable to our clients. The new design will provide better usability, enhanced organization and increased speed. We will make this available publicly soon, stay tuned!

Affiliate Commission Increased

We have increased the affiliate commission in our WordPress plugin affiliate program to a whopping 20%. It applies to both existing and new affiliates signing up.

This is the 1st tier affiliate commission when you refer people to our site with your affiliate link and they purchase. The 2nd tier affiliate commission remains at 10% when you refer someone else to become an affiliate and they refer sales to us.

Our Owner got Married

The owner of Tribulant Software got married at the beginning of May 2012. Antonie Potgieter married the beautiful and wonderful Maria de Clercq (now Maria Potgieter).

The wedding was beautiful and they then headed on honeymoon for two weeks to explore through the Eastern and Western Cape in South Africa. Antonie is back and working hard to catch up with emails and everything else.

Feel free to view the Martonie website (it is in Afrikaans language) where you can read a bit more about them.

We Received a Gift

Due to the nature of our business, the communication from our clients to us is usually pre-sales or technical questions. We do receive testimonials from time to time as well but gifts like these are amazing!

Thank you to Stephane Schueler from Fruitcake for sending us chocolates and the Victory Knox knife as a gift in the mail. We were positively surprised and really appreciate it, you made our week!
