Automatically update your Web Store when products are updated in ONIX

Automatically update your Web Store when products are updated in ONIX

The Benefits
If you’re running your own e-Store and having to manage the shop data independently of your ONIX data then Shop-Sync (previously called Stacker) will bring massive efficiencies to your workflow. Publishers can manage all their products via their ONIX software knowing that Shop-Sync will keep their store updated for them, releasing them to spend the time saved on more important duties.

How it works
Connect your ONIX software to HIVEIO and its workers will then receive any product updates that you make in ONIX. Workers will process that information and update your web store for you, creating or updating categories and products where necessary.

There’s no impact on your site at all when installing Shop-Sync. Once you have an account with HIVEIO we will need to configure your account to have access to ONIX and then Shop-Sync will work behind the scenes to import your ONIX data directly into your store.

Engage customers with ‘Page-Turning’ previews of your products

Engage customers with ‘Page-Turning’ previews of your products

The Benefits
Customers can preview the contents of a publication and make an informed decision on its suitability, increasing customer confidence and the likelihood of a sale. Publishers can reveal limited content without actually allowing customers to download protected material.

How it works
Simply upload a PDF of the content you wish to reveal to your Product and HIVEIO workers will then automatically pick up those newly uploaded files and convert them into previews that can be viewed within your site on desktops, tablets and mobiles.

Once you have an account with HIVEIO all you you need to bring Viewer to your site is a simple FREE extension. Once installed Viewer will send files to the HIVEIO for conversion then display the previews on your site without any  code changes.

Viewer utilises FlexPaper as it's viewing software.

Safeguard your eBook downloads with Watermarking & Personalisation

Safeguard your eBook downloads with Watermarking & Personalisation

The Benefits
As customers will know the files can contain their name or customer number, the risk of illegal distribution is very low. And because no 'real' DRM is used, the customer can read the eBook on every  device he or she owns. Publishers can rest in the knowledge that their digital content is protected without sacrificing customer satisfaction.

How it works
Connect your store to the HIVEIO and its workers will set about invisibly watermarking your eBook files with customer details as and when they  are purchased. Publishers can then track where illegal downloads have originated from.  

Once you have an account with HIVEIO all you you need to bring DRMmer to your site is a simple FREE extension available for Magento and WooCommerce. Once installed DRMmer will send files to the HIVEIO for watermarking then allow the customer to download their file.

DRMmmer uses the Award Winning watermarking service from BooXtream of which we are proud to be Official Resellers!
