Groupon Clone Software Reviews – I Am Accepting Guest Posts

A number of people have reviewed my past Groupon Clone posts and have for the most part given me lots of positive feedback. Most of the reviews written were based on softwares I’ve personally tested out from January through March, 2011. Since then, many other Groupon software clones have come out and, as a result, others have requested that I write on those.

Among those requested which I have not written about were:

Simply put, lately I have not had much time lately to look into additional Groupon clones, as they are so many out there right now. What I am doing now, however, is accepting guest posts. If you feel that a piece of software was not reviewed, please email me a Groupon clone software review, along with the following information:
  1. An intelligent analysis of the software
  2. An intelligent analysis of the support
  3. Pricing options, and
  4. A brief description of who you are and/or your website portfolio
Once that’s done I will be more than happy to post your comments, as I am a firm believer in the spreading of free information to all.

    Hi Rafi, thank you so much for your blog and your usefull group-clone reviews 😉 What are the worst bugs of contus product? Do you rate it “usable” for a serious local business?

      Sorry, i’m Simon! 🙂

      • Hi Simon,

        I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get back to you sooner. In any case, the worst I have seen are the email templates “not talking to each other” (i.e. for most of the email templates, you need to go into the source code and code it yourself, rather than going into “Transactional Emails” save for a couple.

        As for usability, it’s very usable for a serious business, as I have set it up on a few sites already and not only are clients making money from it, but users for the most part have no issues navigating through the script.

        There are some things I personally would like added to it, but that’s for another post.

        Again, the main function here is the payment processors. Being that it’s based on Magento shopping cart, there are numerous extensions for payment processors well beyond Paypal Express and Authorize.net, which are the only two I have found on every other Groupon clone script.

        If you’re interested in setting up a Groupon Clone, let me know. I work with a team of designers and developers at iRISEmedia that can assist you with support during normal business hours on this.

          Hi Rafi,
          Do you still recommend contus for the groupon clone script? Because I am about to pay them, but really freaked out when I read some bad reviews. My request to them rather simple though eg able to extract the sales order to excel spreadsheet, able to display the vouchers sold (ammendable), able to send vouchers to customers after the payment completed.
          They said my requests are simple, sure can do it. Should I proceed? Thanks for your professional view.

          • Hi Ng, being that I wrote this review over 3 years ago I’m presently unaware what newer scripts came out since then. Contus’ Magento Groupon script was never easy to build, but is doable. Contus’ script should be able to export this data as Magento has this feature already built-in to export into a CSV file.

    We are having major problems with the clone we purchased. (Gripsell), we want to move on and get another clone, but we are so frustrated and disappointed in the current one that we don’t trust any other clone. Any suggestions?
    thanks Shawna 

    • Hi Shawna,

      There are three clones I would recommend: Contus, Agriya and WordPress’ GBS. Depending on what your requirements are I can recommend any of those three. Let me know a little more about what you’re looking to do as well as a good number to reach you. Email me at “rh at irisemedia dot com.”
