The eBay Slap and Ticket Desk Pro

With all this hoo-ha about eBay restricting ebook sales, there’s one thing for sure. You’re going to have to become more professional.

There’s no room any more to behave like a small time ebook seller. You have to both educate yourself, and surround yourself with the right tools to do the job.

That’s why I’ve been posting here on my blog ways of how you can do both.

One of the things that you’re going to need is a support desk.

Trust me. It doesn’t matter what size your business is now, you’re going to need some help desk software eventually.

Here’s a fantastic deal for you.

Get $97 worth of full featured support desk software for under $20, but only if you’re quick.

This is what Phil Horsepool has said about Ticket Desk Pro:-

Hi Frank,

Got it, installed it, love it already 🙂

Looks like it will knock my existing helpdesk software into touch without even breaking a sweat!

When’s the affiliate program opening?


Phil Horsepool

Phil is one of the 192 people that have picked up Ticket Desk Pro for less than $15.

He got it at such a low price through the pre-launch nickel sale I’m running for Ticket Desk Pro.

I’m doing this because I want feedback and testimonials from REAL people like you. I also want affiliates to promote it for me.

As I write this, the current price for Ticket Desk Pro is $14.57 with 192 copies sold.

I don’t care how big your list is, or even if you don’t have a list. By using and promoting Ticket Desk Pro, you’ll make money.

Once you’ve installed it on your site, any customers coming to raise a ticket will see a link to Ticket Desk Pro at the bottom of every page. If they click the link, you earn a commission.

That’s because I’ve made it so you can enter your affiliate ID into the site settings.

How cool is that? Just for using the software, you get to earn money.

Win-wins really make my day.

It’s always very satisfying for me to know that people are earning affiliate commissions for the least effort possible.

If you want to get Ticket Desk Pro at the lowest possible price, get yourself to the link below now. The price is rising by 5 cents with every sale. The longer you wait, the higher the price will go.

Even while you’re reading this, the price has probably jumped up by 5 or 10 cents.

Here’s the link.

I’ll be closing the nickel sale down some time in the next few days, so don’t hang around. The next time you see it for sale may be at $97.

Ticket Desk Pro – All Issues Answered

I think that all Ticket Desk Pro (TDP) issues that were raised have now been answered. If you do have any problems, then please raise a support ticket at:-

All those people who registered their purchase and confirmed their email address will be rewarded in at least two ways.

1) All buyers of my last nickel sale will always receive plenty of warning about my next one, and will also get the link to the sales page at least two hours before anyone else. (The next one is for the Nickel Script itself.)

2) When the official TDP site goes live in 2-3 weeks time, you’ll receive your details by email.

If you didn’t register, then, oh well at least you got this first version at a good price. If you want later versions then as you’re not registered you’ll have to pay full price for them.

I’m sure you understand why I have to do this.

If you haven’t purchased yet, then don’t waste any more time.  If you do, then the next time you see TDP advertised, it may be at $97.00.

Here’s the link for you:-

Ticket Desk Pro – Nickel Sale Woes

First of all I apologise.

As with all things in life, sometimes things don’t go as you’d like them. Right as I paid for the WSO to go live, I had to go out for a few hours (unplanned) and I’ve just got back.

I had the site design done for me and then I added in the bits to make the nickel sale work. It looks great in Dreamweaver, and works perfectly in FireFox which is the browser I use.

I suspect that something has gone wrong with the nickel script, which is also one of mine. We’ve been doing a few changes to it in the last few days, and then checking the results in our favourite browser which is FireFox. As it already worked in IE, I think we must have had a blind spot, and didn’t bother checking to see if it still looked okay in IE.

I’ve just written to my developer to see if he knows why it might be broken and I’m waiting to hear back from him.

Anyone that sent me a message either via PM, email, my blog, my blog contact form, or my help desk (or any other method I’ve forgotten to include here) to say they saw the price was at $n.nn but couldn’t buy will get it at that price.

That’s not an invitation to make a price up and email me now.

Genuine contacts with the right price for the time they contacted me will get it at that price.

I think that’s as fair as I can make it without upsetting too many people.

I unreservedly apologise for this, it obviously wasn’t planned at all, and is a bit of a nightmare. Especially as I’ll be selling the nickel script in a couple of weeks time too!

Please contact me by my help desk, and look if I can’t get back to you as quickly as we’d both like, please trust me that I will. I have a feeling that it will take a bit of unpicking to get it right and make everyone happy.

Help desk –

-Frank Haywood.

Update: I’m very glad to say it wasn’t the fault of the Nickel Script.

I’d set one of the nested tables at 700% instead of 700 pixels. Apparently Dreamweaver and Firefox will compensate for this, but IE just pushes out the other tables to accommodate the 6/7ths of the page that is in the table. D’oh!

That will teach me to always always check out a page in IE before putting it live. I usually do, but this one time…

Ticket Desk Pro – Pre-Launch Nickel Sale Today

Just to put your mind at rest, the pre-launch nickel sale for Ticket Desk Pro will start today.


I know there are a lot of people itching to get their hands on this, and I’m sorry for the delay, but I’m sure you’ll agree it was all worth while when you get your copy.

The price starts at $5.02, and my guess is if you’re quick you’ll get it for under $10.

Even if you pay $20 for it, it’s still a bargain over the official launch price of $47, and even more so over the final price of $97.

You’ll get an email about it later today, and where you can get your copy.

Probably the best thing for you to do if you aren’t already, is subscribe to this blog notification list by going to the home page, and near the top right entering your name and email address and clicking the button.

If you want a quick look at the spec before you buy, this is where you should go now:-
