Use the familiar WordPress back-end to create deals and publish them on the site. A custom “deal” post type is used to differentiate deals from other types of content.
Using the “Submit Deal” form any registered visitors can submit a deal on your site. What’s more, you (admin) have full control over the submission form fields.
Customizing the homepage is easy as drag n’ drop, literally. Widgets allow you to populate the homepage with various content while still preserving that clean and beautiful look.
As admin, you control what happens with each submission. It’s in your power to confirm or reject any deal submitted on the site.
Fields available inside the deal submission form can be expanded allowing you to collect unique information from your visitors.
These include a custom (affiliate) type deal where the Buy Now button is linked to somewhere else, a digital deal and a coupon deal.
Available gateways include: PayPal, Google Checkout, Authorize.net, WorldPay, 2Checkout. Offline payment methods (cash and PreBank) are also present.
Add affiliates and allow them to showcase your products on their sites. Use the affiliate back-end to stay on top of things with sales reports.
No worries, we didn’t forget about the blog. Starting a blog with this advanced theme is as easy as creating a new category and adding some posts to it.
The theme will send out emails to all involved parties whenever a purchase is made on the site. These emails can be tweaked in the back-end.
In DailyDeal everything revolves around you – the admin. Once visitors, i.e. other sellers post their deals their job is done. The money made by selling those deals first goes to you. This is to avoid people getting scammed on your site.
After receiving the money the admin must forward it to the sellers. Since this part isn’t tracked by the theme you can use any method you want – even cash. Of course, before you pay out the sellers you’ll calculate and keep your commission. This is also up to you. The commission can be 10% or 70% – totally your call.
Considering deal sites tend to be high in traffic we recommend earning some extra money by selling ad space. To make it happen just use the built-in advertisement widget.
This is a great little theme, very affordable and fast to set up!
All transactions completed on your site will be available for review in the back-end.
To make numbers easier to manage you can export all transaction date into a .csv file.

There are two ways for the admin to make money. The first is rather passive; by selling ad space. The second one is by selling the actual deals. DailyDeal is structured so that all the money first goes to you – the admin. Once a deal is finished it is your job to forward it to the other parties. This part is done off-site so you can distribute the money however best suits you.
Yes and no. While creating a coupon-type deal you get to choose whether to use one coupon code for all payments or unique codes for each purchase. If you select the second option (unique codes) you need to enter the same number of codes as set in the “Max number of purchases” field. This part is of course manual, however if you leave the field empty the theme will generate the required number of codes for you.
