Media Mall Factory 3.2.0

  MediaMall is a powerfull solution to manage media files online distribution with a built in Credit System. Using this component the site can easily sell media files (ex. Video Tutorials) online.

Using the MediaMall solution users can post their media files on your site. For each media file a number of Credits can be perceived in order to visualize the file. The poster will earn credits, which can be later converted into a payment by the webmaster.

Accepted upload formats are:

  • video files (flw, swf, mov and wmf; avi files are also partially supported, but not all codecs are included.)
  • audio files (mp3)
  • archives (zip, rar, gz, bz2, arj, arc, '7z) - used generally for tutorials; if a user is posting video file with a photoshop tutorial, in the archive he can include the sample files.

In order to purchase the credits easier the system provides a Paypal integration. Clean payments are transformed automatically into credits. If any problems the payments are going into the "Payment/canceled Payments, where the administrator can decide further actions. A further income method, if set, can be the pay for Contact. Here a user will pay with credits in order to send a contact email to the author.

The administrator can create and manage Categories, set credit related settings and manage credits and views. Another important administrator feature is the management of the author payments. The system also includes user notifications on certain actions.

Viewers can use the integrated Rating System to rate and also place comments for any media file. This is allowed for free media files and for commercial media files only after viewing in order to avoid any abuses.

Surely the media files can be also posted for free, allowing the view without any credit purchase. The administrator can configure this allowing the view for guest or logged users.

Among other features, the component benefits also from Joomfish Integration, offering multilanguage support.

Reverse Auction Factory 3.0.1
  A reverse auction (also called procurement auction, e-auction, sourcing event, e-sourcing or eRA) is a tool used in industrial business-to-business procurement. It is a type of auction in which the role of the buyer and seller are reversed, with the primary objective to drive purchase prices downward. In a reverse auction, sellers compete to obtain business.

Reverse auction is a tool used by many purchasing and supply management organizations for spend management, as part of strategic sourcing and overall supply management activities.

In a reverse auction, a buyer contracts with a market maker to help make the necessary preparations to conduct the reverse auction. This includes: finding new suppliers, training new and incumbent suppliers, organizing the auction, managing the auction event, and providing auction data to buyers to facilitate decision making.

The market maker, on behalf of the buyer, issues a request for quotation (RFQ) to purchase a particular item or group of items (called a "lot"). At the designated day and time, several suppliers, typically 5-20, log on to the auction site and will input several quotes over a 30-90 minute period. These quotes reflect the prices at which they are willing to supply the requested good or service.

Quoting performed in real-time via the Internet results in dynamic bidding. This helps achieve rapid downward price pressure that is not normally attainable using traditional static 3-quote paper-based bidding processes.

The prices that buyers obtain in the reverse auction reflect the narrow market which it created at the moment in time when the auction is held. Thus, it is possible that better value - i.e. lower prices, as well as better quality, delivery performance, technical capabilities, etc. - could be obtained from suppliers not engaged in the bidding or by other means such as collaborative cost management and joint process improvement.

The buyer may award contracts to the supplier who bid the lowest price. Or, a buyer could award contracts to suppliers who bid higher prices depending upon the buyer's specific needs with regards to quality, lead-time, capacity, or other value-adding capabilities. However, buyers frequently award contracts to incumbent (i.e. current) suppliers, even if prices are higher than the lowest bids, because the switching costs to move work to a new supplier are higher than the potential savings that can be realized.
