WooCommerce Glassboxx

Description

Glassboxx is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution from Firsty Group allowing audiobooks and eBooks purchased from any website, blog or social media platform to be fulfilled directly and seamlessly to the customer with full digital rights management (DRM), via Glassboxx apps on Android, iOS, Windows and macOS.

Sign up here to create a Glassboxx Vendor account to use this plugin. Once you’ve signed up, log in to the Glassboxx Portal and follow the instructions on the Getting Started page in the Glassboxx Portal to set up your account and upload your eBooks and audiobooks.

Woocommerce product setup

You should create WooCommerce Virtual products in your WooCommerce store for your eBooks and audiobooks. You can use these as standalone products, in grouped products or as variants in Variable Products. Also, for your ebook and audiobook virtual products, leave the ‘Downloadable’ option unchecked, leave the ‘Manage stock’ option unchecked, set the Stock status to ‘In stock’ and check the ‘Sold individually’ option.

The SKUs of your virtual products should match the ISBN13s of the books you have uploaded to Glassboxx.

If using variable products, firstly create a WooCommerce custom product attribute with the format descriptions you require as Attribute Terms. Then when creating the Variable Product, for the Attribute, select the custom product attribute from the list of custom attributes, and chose all the values. Finally, add the variations you require for each format and ensure that the variants to be fulfilled by Glassboxx are created as Virtual products and that the SKU matches exactly the ISBN13 uploaded to Glassboxx for the corresponding eBook or audiobook.

Plugin usage

Once configured and your products are set up in your WooCommerce store and the Glassboxx Portal, the plugin handles all the communications between your WooCommerce store and Glassboxx, making the customer user experience simple and seamless. It also adds a block to the order success page signposting the customer to the Glassboxx apps when they have completed their purchase.

If you change the status of an order on the Order Page in WooCommerce from Pending Payment to Processing or Completed, the order details will also be sent to Glassboxx, allowing the customer to receive their book.

My orders are not being passed to Glassboxx, what’s wrong?

  1. In your Glassboxx Vendor account, go to PRODUCTS / Manage Products, and make sure the ISBN of the product you’ve added to Glassboxx is 100% identical to the ISBN used for the product SKU in WooCommerce. The best value to use for both is the ISBN13 and must not contain dashes.
  2. Make sure your WooCommerce products are set up as described as above.
  3. Make sure the status of your WooCommerce order is Completed. If necessary, you can use the plugin Autocomplete WooCommerce Orders (https://wordpress.org/plugins/autocomplete-woocommerce-orders/) to automatically complete order of Virtual Products if your payment gateway plugin does not do this. After installing the Autocomplete plugin, in Woocommerce / Settings/ Autocomplete Orders, set the mode to ‘Paid orders of virtual orders only’.
  4. Make sure the email address you are using to sign in to the Glassboxx app is identical to the address used to make the purchase on your website.
