Domain Mapping / eNom Purchase Flow and Price?

Hi,

I'm setting up Pro Sites and the Domain Mapping for a client, and I have a few questions about the purchase flow and how to set the price for domains.

1) The client wants people to be able to choose a domain and register it as part of the Pro Sites signup process, just as people do when signing up for typical web hosting. However I don't see any provision for this in the Domain Mapping plugin. It seems that the only way is for someone to sign up for a Pro Sites plan, then later go back and buy a domain from within their Dashboard. Is that the only way?

2) I can't find any way to set the domain pricing. In the Dashboard, the user is presented with the option to buy a domain for $39.95 (which is way more than needs to be charged). But that price isn't set in eNom (the price there is much lower). So, since the plugin is connected to the client's eNom account via API, why isn't it pulling in the pricing? I couldn't find any documentation on this at all.

Thanks and best regards,

Mark

    Hi Mark,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

    Yes currently it's the only way to buy a domain from the admin area > tools > domain mapping > purchase domain but there is already a feature request created for this feature and this feature may be added in future version of plugin but We don't publish ETAs to prevent disappointment if a deadline is missed(which in plugin development quite a frequent occurrence!).

    2) I can't find any way to set the domain pricing. In the Dashboard, the user is presented with the option to buy a domain for $39.95 (which is way more than needs to be charged). But that price isn't set in eNom (the price there is much lower). So, since the plugin is connected to the client's eNom account via API, why isn't it pulling in the pricing?

    The domain pricing are set in your eNom account but if you have not set it then it uses the default pricing so please check your eNom account settings regarding this.
