Store Locator Plus Additional Functionality

Store Locator Plus .     Store Locator Plus SaaS:  Enterprise level subscribers have a module that adds URL control functionality.

Upgraded  Premium Features

Enterprise / Premier Users

Territory Bounds module was moved from the General | Data tab to the General | Server | Web App Settings section.  Cluster Map Markers is useful for a large dataset in close proximity to each other on the map.

URL Control

A  URL Control module was been added to the application for Enterprise or premier subscribers.   Enabling this module will turn on the interface to allow additional data to be presented in a web page URL to impact how the locator behaves.

URL Control : Allow Location In URL

The first URL Control option is to pass a location ID in via a URL.   Adding ?location=<id> to the end of a web page address that hosts the locator will cause the page to load with the specified location being highlighted as if the map marker was clicked.  The default behavior is to show the info bubble for that location.

Power (WPSLP) / Professional (MySLP) Overview

The Power add on for WordPress Store Locator Plus and the Power level for MySLP product line is within the Professional plan share similar features and functionality.  Whereas they are similar, they are not interchangeable.  For instance, you cannot use the MySLP Power or Professional  level service plan to export your WordPress location data and vice versa.  There is a feature for MySLP subscribers that will allow some basic location loading from your SLP or other WP locator base plug-in. See News feed here for more info. Additionally, MySLP does not have SEO Pages or Directory Builder capability as yet.

Note: Where the WP symbol appears below, those features are built into the WordPress SLP Power add-on only.

Categorization

Assign categories to your locations that allow users to pick a category and show only those locations.  Great for showing service versus retail centers or locations that carry specific products.

Paying With Credit Card

Note: Starting in March 2017 you can now pay with a credit card via Stripe.  This will not interact in any way with PayPal and allows you to purchase subscriptions on a credit card.

Store Locator Plus subscriptions or add-ons  can be purchased with a credit card.   To do so go through the normal checkout procedure.   When the PayPal login screen appears choose the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” button on the bottom of the screen.   Fill out your details for the credit card information.
