This week we added a wire transfer payout method for international developers, and adjusted the recently added download counts.
Recently Rolled Out
Slight Change to Download Counts
Based on feedback from a few developers, we made a couple changes to the download counts that we added last week. First, we're only listing download counts for free add-ons. Second, we're only listing counts for the past 90 days, as opposed to an "all-time" count. This will give you a better idea how often an add-on has been downloaded recently.
New Wire Transfer Payout Option
We've had increased interest in wire transfers as a payout method for non-U.S. based developers. We've been using this method with a few developers for a while and it has worked great. This morning, we added it to the "Preferred Payment Method" selector in your profile area. If you'd prefer to receive payments via wire transfer, just select that from the dropdown and read the instructions that appear that outline what information you need to supply, the fees involved, and the various payout frequencies.
New Add-ons This Week
We saw the Continuum add-on in action during Ben Croker's demonstration at EECI in Texas a few weeks ago and it looks fun. It's free...give it a try!
Countree ($) by Eoghan O’Brien
Countree is a fieldtype that helps ease the pain when dealing with countries in ExpressionEngine 2 by providing numerous display options and tags.
EEdfw Geoplugin by ExpressionEngine DFW
This add-on returns a user's geolocation information via the GeoPlugin service.
Continuum by PutYourLightsOn (Ben Croker)
Continuum is a real-time visitor tracking add-on. It works by logging visits and other actions on your website, collecting data about each user and their navigation patterns which can be literally viewed in real-time, as well as viewed at any time in the future.
