    once a seller bought the ad place and the ad is active, let’s say the seller bought a place for 2 days. now is it possible that the seller displays different pictures in 2 days? like 1 picture today and then change the picture tomorrow?
    or is it just there will be only one picture remain their and that is the one seller bought the place with.
    Thanks
    • Nishad Bhan (Moderator)
      Hey Tahir, the seller can update the image as well as the URL link associated with the ads block under their account panel with the plugin options available. For more information kindly reach out to us at [email protected]

    once a seller bought an ad space, what if the admin want to delete it or want to free that space again ?
    • Nishad Bhan (Moderator)
      Hello Taahir, right now if the seller purchases an ads space block, then the admin can disable that seller ad any time as required & the seller’s ads block will not be visible at the storefront. Also, the admin can set the validity in days for each ad block after which the ad-block expires. For any other feature requirements or doubt clarifications kindly reach out to our support team at [email protected] so that they can assist you with the same.

      Regards, Team Webkul.

    Can we see how the ads perform such as number of impressions and clicks?
    • Archana Tiwari (Moderator)
      Hello There,
      Currently this module allows the sellers to purchase advertisement space/blocks that have been set by the admin for the website front-end. The purchased advertisements depend on the validity of the advertisement blocks/space set by the admin.
      To know more about the module, please mail us at [email protected].

  • LUIS PUNTEL
    Why your demo does not show the front end page so we coud see how it really looks like?
    • Nishad Bhan (Moderator)
      Hi Luis Puntel,

      Thanks for reaching back!

      To check how the advertisements appear at the frontend you need to login as a seller. To do so, click the “Seller End Advertisement Blocks” button on the demo page – http://prntscr.com/l9qyx2.

      After this, navigate to Advertisement Blocks menu option – http://prntscr.com/l9r090 and add an Ads Block. After this, go to “Buy Advertisement Position” menu option and and select an advertisement Position that you want to buy by selecting your “Ads Block” and then clicking the Book button. After completing the purchase generate the invoice for the order.

      Now, navigate to the frontend and check the advertisement position for your ads.

      If you still have doubts kindly get back to us at [email protected] and we will be more than happy to help you out.
