Products & Upsells

Don't forget to setup a payment provider!

If you want to have paid products on your site, they won't be displayed unless you have a payment provider. Learn how to set up your payment provider here.

Products are an excellent way to encourage employers to post multiple jobs on your website, use your candidate database or sell additional services. You can offer a wide range of flexible packages ranging from a simple multiple job posting with combined upgrades to unlimited packages accommodating long-term sourcing needs.

To setup a product, click the 'Products' option on the admin navigation bar on the left hand side, then click 'Add Product'.

You have four choices of products:

Job Postings

The Job Posting creation form includes the following fields:

  • Name: What you want to call your job posting product i.e. “3 Jobs for $299”
  • Description: This will be displayed in the product table
  • Special Instructions: This will appear on the receipt when purchased
  • Price: The price you wish to charge.
  • Hidden: If you want this product visible to the public.
  • Allow Coupons: Can coupons be redeemed against this purchase?
  • Number of Jobs: How many jobs someone can create with this Package. If empty they can create unlimited Jobs.
  • Job Listing Duration: How long should jobs be displayed on the job board before expiring?
  • Jobs must be posted within: How long is the product good for?

You can also choose to bundle any of the upsell's you may have created, such as candidate profile database access or featured job listings, or have upsell's available for additional purchase.

Applying Upsells

Upsells will only be offered as an add-on at the time of purchase for single job postings. If you'd like customers to be able to purchase multi-job packages that include upsells, we recommend making one product for regular job postings, then a second product with the same number of jobs that includes any upsells you'd like to include. Featured and Urgent upsells included in a bundle of 2+ jobs will be applied to ALL jobs purchased in that bundle. Be sure to price accordingly.

At this time there is no option to apply upsells to only a portion of jobs in a package, or to allow clients to purchase upsells while posting a job that was purchased as part of a job pack.

Profile Access

The Profile Access option allows you to sell access to your candidate profile database. It includes the following fields:

  • Name: What you want to call your product i.e. “Profile Access”
  • Description: This will be displayed in the product table
  • Special Instructions: This will appear on the receipt when purchased
  • Price: The price you wish to charge.
  • Hidden: If you want this product visible to the public.
  • Allow Coupons: Can coupons be redeemed against this purchase?
  • # of Profile Views Included: Set a limit to the number of profiles that can be viewed before an employer would need to repurchase profile access. Leave blank for unlimited views.
  • Product Expires In: Set a time limit for how long employers can access profiles before they will need to repurchase profile access. Leave blank for never expires.

Unlimited Access

If you leave both "# of Profile Views" and "Product Expires In" blank, employers will have unlimited, permanent access to your profile database.

Upsell

Upsell's are optional add-ons which can be included with a product, or purchased additionally.

  • Upsell Type: Select from one of the following -
    • Featured Job: Will be pinned to the top of the jobs list for a duration you specify. After this period has expired, the job will retain a darker border to make it stand out, but will appear down the list as normal.
    • Custom Upsell: This can be anything you want! For example, if you run a newspaper, you could offer a joint posting in your classifieds. Custom upsells will not have an impact on your jobboard.io site, so we recommend including Special Instructions for how employers can redeem these purchases.
    • Urgent Job: Adds a flag to the top right corner of a Posting letting Job Seekers know that an employer wants to hire for this position ASAP. Job Seekers are attracted to positions they know will be filled fast.
    • Job Boost: Allows employers to spend additional funds to have their job distributed across our syndication network. You keep a percentage of the funds spent on the boost, and the remainder is used to promote the job. Find out more in our blog!
  • Name: What you want to call the upsell i.e. “Featured Jobs”
  • Description: This will be displayed in the product table
  • Special Instructions: This will appear on the receipt when purchased
  • Price: The price you wish to charge.
  • Hidden: If you want this product visible to the public.

Custom

Custom means you can create any product you wish. The post a job form will not be displayed.

  • Name: What you want to call your product i.e. “CV Review”
  • Description: This will be displayed in the product table
  • Special Instructions: This will appear on the receipt when purchased
  • Price: The price you wish to charge.
