Can I post discount to my own shareware product?
« on: October 26, 2006, 11:18:38 AM »
Hi,

I like the work you are doing so I was wondering if I could just post a discount code to one of my own products - Swift To-Do List ( http://www.dextronet...swift-to-do-list.php ) - one of the finest todo managers I know  ;) ... or if I have to push this through the DonationCoder staff.

Thanks!

thank you for asking. jiri!

you are very welcome to post it here: http://www.donationc...index.php?board=39.0
(just keep in mind it will be visible to everyone who reads our forums).

we do however have a more formal different kind of discount that we present, a few each month, only to members, and always >= 30%, which get mentioned in our newsletter.

OK great, thank you mouser. I just were making sure, because I've seen only posts by you and Ampa there.

our general approach has been that if a company wants to offer a discount to people through our forum, or to members only, they are quite welcome to do so themselves.

like i said we also try to choose a few each month which go in the official newsletter, etc., which is what most companies want since it's more exposure.  but for that we have limited space and some requirements (like must be 30% discount for a month or more).

november we are doing a special giveaway from ww.veign.com of a MS visual studio bundle so the next discounts will be in december, but we can talk about that over email if you want :)
