    And now for the difficult part: where do i find a external link to my product? I need to some how be able to show it to potential customers to sell it.

    Clicking the arrow to the right of the product name will load the product payment page in a new tab. You can copy this link and distribute it. One limitation to note is that users currently have to pre-register on your Curatr instance before they can proceed to making purchases.

    Hi Jos,

    Can you explain a little more about what you mean by 'webshop'?

    Our client will have a webshop where you can buy MOOCs / Courses / SPOCs...

    The 'shop' will need to be hosted on their (non Curatr) site with details of the course, costs etc and then linking through to Curatr for the purchase.

    So the "e-commerce" is like the preparation for a kind of webshop....

    It's setting up Curatr to allow courses to be purchased and then accessed. The promo of the course itself should take place outside of Curatr.

    Pete - can you explain a little bit more about what you mean by this? Does that mean they can't register and enrol from the course directly from the marketing/course link without first having a profile in Curatr?

    Hi Cathy,

    That is correct, only existing Curatr users can purchase and enrol on to courses. The products area was originally built with a client who already had an existing membership and a single sign-on solution and so did not require the purchase to sit outside the register user area.

    One thing you could use to encourage users to register would be to make a short free introductory course and promote it on your public facing website, asking users to sign up to get access. You could then use that course to link to your paid courses.

    The added benefit of this approach is that your would receive the email addresses of everyone who signs up and could follow up with marketing messages in the future.

    Regards

    Pete
