Hi everyone. As part of tonight’s release we made a number of enhancements to our subscribing member programs which we're really excited about.
First off, we re-branded the Plus and Premiere programs. The Plus program is now the Bonanza Pro Silver program. The Premiere program is now the Bonanza Pro Gold program. Subscribing members will see the changes most obviously on their profile pages (a new medal adorns your page; replacing the star) or on the newly designed memberships page which confirms your status (if signed in and a subscribing member already). A screenshot of the newly designed page in its signed-out state is below. Overall we greatly simplified the page making the benefits of each program clearer. For more info on each item mouse-over the icon.
Aside from the redesign and rebranding effort, there are a few enhancements to the Bonanza Pro membership programs. Silver and Gold programs are now eligible for a free 30-day trial for those who haven't tried the program before. And, if you pay for a year in advance, you get an additional month for free. Why not give it a go? You can cancel at any time.
Gold Program members (formerly Premiere) will see a handy new feature. You can now create custom product hierarchies for your booth. Simply use the drag-and-drop interface to set the order of your categories and drag any category to the right (effectively indenting it) to make it a sub-category. You can see a screenshot below - just don't forget to update your booth after making your changes. Gold members still receive all of the Silver Program benefits as well.
Silver Program members (formerly Plus) will see the same benefits as before, but we are working on some new ideas to make the Silver Program even better.
And, as you likely noted above, we are introducing a new membership program – the Bonanza Pro Platinum program. Platinum members receive all of the benefits of the Silver and Gold programs of course. Additionally, there are no fees for Platinum members. Sell and item and keep it all! Platinum members also get direct access to a dedicated Sales Consultant who can help them optimize their items and booths. The Platinum program is not eligible for the free trial (as we waive fees), but if you purchase for a year we will give you a month for free.
You can read more about the services for each program on our main membership page. If you want to see all the services, and are already a subscribing member, be sure to sign-out when viewing the page.
We have some fun things in store for all our merchants that are coming soon, but it had been a good while since we did anything to enhance our services for our subscribing members and it was time we did so. I'm glad we're able to offer a free trial so now everyone can try out one of the programs to see if it's right for them. I encourage you to give it a shot!
Thanks everyone! And feedback, as always, is encouraged.
