Christmas Greetings 2017

Dear eBesucher member!

Christmas is heading our way again and 2017 is drawing to a close. We want to take this opportunity to review the past year and take a look at the upcoming twelve months.

Review

At this point, we would like to thank you for your loyalty and participation. We have noted that most of our users have widely approved the new features of 2017, like the Social Login or the Portal for Advertisers. From suggestions to criticism, our team has received a lot of positive and useful feedback throughout the year. In this regard, we also want to emphasize that we understand your critique regarding the Surfbar Update. However, due to the changes that have been implemented to newer browser structures, these innovations have been indispensable and have also triggered a rise in surfbar earnings towards the end of the year.

In any case, your hints and tips have encouraged us to offer you more features and earning opportunities.

New Advertising Method – BETA Testing

After an extended time of development, we are on the verge of releasing a major update for you in the beginning of 2018. This update has already been released for BETA testing – thanks again to the numerous volunteers at this point! Next to the surfbar and the mail advertising, the update will present a unique and new advertising feature. This means that you as a user can earn points even faster and that advertisers can choose between more different methods of online advertising. Once the BETA testing is terminated, the new advertising feature will be released.

We wish you a merry christmas, happy holidays and a happy new year!

Surfbar Update in Google Chrome

Due to a change in the browser structure, the use of the Surfbar in Chrome 60, as well as other chromium-based browsers, could not be ensured.

The surfbar has been updated for these major browsers and the following innovations go into effect:

  • From now on, the surfbar will be used through the surfbar helper.
  • The surfbar helper opens itself, when the surfbar is started through the dashboard (surf now) or through the discover -button on an interest area (Animals & Pets, Cars & Motorcycles).

Note
: No changes haven been applied to Mozilla Firefox or other versions of Google Chrome.

Our developers will now focus on the development of the new surfbar add-on. Once, the new add-on has been released, we will inform you by newsletter and in our blog.

 

Surfbar Update

After having launched a site update, the surfbar has been restored for the Google Chrome browser. The offline testing was successful but we are currently encountring some minor difficulties on the live system.

Please note that the surfbar can temporarily be started through one of the interest areas.

Example: go to Animals & Pets and click on Discover to start the surfbar.

We are working on finishing the update and will report back once everything has been implemented.

 

Google Chrome Incident

Google Chrome users, who have updated their browser to version 60.0, are experiencing difficulties when trying to add new advertising campaigns or using the surfbar.

Our developers are currently working on a solution.

Until everything is back to normal, we recommend using one of the following free browsers:

Portal For Advertisers

Over the course of the years, eBesucher has grown considerably, as we are consistenly releasing smaller and bigger features for advertisers and users. Because of this, we have also received mixed feedback, in particular from new members who are less familiar with the platform. Those users have expressed their concern regarding the clarity and user-friendliness of eBesucher.

We have therefore started to detach the advertising section from the members area. This means that in the long run, all the relevant features regarding the management of the advertising campaigns will be shifted to the new portal for advertisers. The eBesucher members area is thus becoming slimmer and our platform will be more user-friendly.

As one of the first changes, we have shifted the feature that allows you to convert BTP into MTP (and vice versa) to the portal for advertisers. The feature is listed under orders > convert points.

You can find the portal for advertisers on Buy advertising > Manage advertising.

Important: it goes without saying that all members will continue to have access in the members area, as well as the portal for advertisers.

 

Maintenance Work on the 27th of June

We are now carrying out maintenance work on the server infrastructure. eBesucher will be unavailable between 1:00pm and 3:30pm (CET+2).

Thank you for your patience!

Ebesucher Add-on Compatibility

Users of Mozilla Firefox, who have updated their browser to the latest version (54.0 or higher), are currently experiencing difficulties with the eBesucher add-on. Whilst the addon remains installed, it is no longer displayed in the browser interface. This incident encourages us in our aim to develop a new and better add-on. Within the upcoming days, our developers will therefore intensify their efforts in processing this task. We will announce the release of the new add-on via newsletter.

As for now, in order to continue using the addon, you can use an older Firefox Version. We recommend Firefox 52.3.5. ESR.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us!

eBesucher is back online

eBesucher has yesterday been offline for several hours, as one of our main servers has failed. Unfortunately and for several reasons, the maintenance has taken longer than expected.

We apologize for the incident! eBesucher is now back online.

 

eBesucher Social Login

eBesucher now provides a social login to its members! By linking your eBesucher account, you can easily access the members area through a social network of your choice. The following networks are available: Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn.

Those who have not yet created an account on eBesucher, can easily sign up through one of the above mentionned social networks.

Below two examples on how to process on Facebook.

Connect Existing Account With Facebook

  • Go to the members area on User Data > Profile.
  • Look out for Social Login and go on Facebook.
  • If you are not yet logged in, you will be redirected, so that you can log in on Facebook.
  • Your eBesucher account is now connected with Facebook and you no longer have to log in on Facebook seperately!

  • Click on the button Sign up now.
  • The following form will take over the data from Facebook. Simply proceed by confirming our terms and conditions and the confirmation email, that is all!

 

 

HTML5 Replaces The Flash Player

HTML5 has finally replaced the Flash Player from Adobe and most browsers do no longer support the Flash plugin.

We have therefore applied some changes and optimized the connection test of the surfbar. As of now, we will run a quick test in Javascript which verifies whether the Flash plugin is installed. This allows us to drastically shorten the connection test and to load the surfbar much faster.

A huge advantage for all surfbar users: Most browsers automatically support HTML5 automatically and never require to install any plugins.

Final remark: In order to increase your earnings in the surfbar, we strongly recommend using the eBesucher Add-on for Mozilla Firefox.
