I'm in the same boat. I'm fairly familiar with building websites via wordpress, but this Zombaio implementation has thrown me for a loop.
I've even spent money outsourcing developers who've been ultimately unable to implement Zombaio for me. Currently, I'm working with a company "Phantom Flix" who has charged me 50 bucks for an installation fee (and the installation so far has been a nightmare - and still not complete a week later) and also a monthly fee of 25 bucks or so for ..... who knows what. I currently use the paid wordpress e-commerce plugin for payment processing via paypal. I have an adult site, however, and I know it will eventually catch up with me. Why I can't just switch from PayPal to Zombaio within the e-commerce plugin, GOD only knows! Hell, that'd be way too simple!
I've been reading through these threads and frankly, I'm so confused I don't know what to do. I feel like I've wasted so much time and money and I'm getting nowhere. I would be so unequivocally grateful for some help with this process.
I'm no coder, developer, or geek when it comes to building websites - hence my use of WordPress. It's been a godsend so far... but this is giving me a run for my money (quite literally)... and as others have stated, Zombaio sure ain't interested in helping with the implementation process.... ESPECIALLY for those of us who don't have membership sites.
I just want a payment gateway that legally processes payments for adult content - one that will allow you to click on a 'buy now' button, process the payment of the video, give the customer an encrypted download link with an expiration time as well as limited number of downloads (all things WP e-commerce plugin provides), and be done with it.
I didn't think I was ready to make my site a recurring membership site, but maybe that's something I'm going to be forced to do. Even then, however, I haven't the slightest clue how to make that happen - of course other than searching for the right plugin. But then will the plugin be compatible with Zombaio? With the e-commerce plugin?
I use Hostgator and therefore Cpanel. Cpanel automatically installs wordpress for me so I don't even know how to install wordpress onto my server. (How sad is that!?) .... so all of this talk of installing snippets of code is overwhelming to me. Where do I install it?
Do I install it in the theme editor for whichever theme I'm using? Do I have to actually go into my cpanel and add it somewhere?
Maybe this is a hopeless cause and I'll be forced to pay this guy 30 bucks a month to do this for me.... It's just frustrating because I KNOW there's a way to do it without that fee. And I ALSO know that the only reason I'm doing this website on my own is so I can avoid the ridiculous fees that clipsforsale.com charges (40%) per download. But if I'm paying this guy $30/mo plus Zombaio's fees, what the hell am I even doing all of this for?
I'm just frustrated and at a loss. I need some help. I've been working on wordpress sites for well over a year now and have learned a whole lot. I love wordpress. This is the first time I've ever posted on the boards, though.
I had to be pretty desperate to go there.
Any help would be unbelievably appreciated.
