Description PJ 2012-12-12 19:08:48 UTC
This upsell landing could be better (from the upsell dialog): https://store.xamarin.com/#product_14

product_14 looks bad (and is unnecessary) 

Also [Explore Xamarin.Mac] should probably link to a product info page (liberally sprinkled with 'Buy now' buttons), not just the store.

MD 3.1.1

We did this intentionally today. The actual URL that is now launched from the addin is:


And on the server redirects to (currently):


The #product_14 is an anchor that makes the page scroll to the Mac product, so if we want that page (which I don't ultimately), it is very necessary.

I would like to have /mac/upsell-landing just redirect to /mac where we actually explain (aka let the user "Explore") the content. However, there's no actual "Buy Xamarin.Mac" button on that page, which needs to be fixed.

So, this isn't an addin bug. Bojan and I "future proofed" the addin with /mac/upsell-landing so we can change the landing page server side without having to release a software update.

I'm not sure where to reassign/recomponentize this bug. Thoughts? Adding Nat on the CC.

The link goes to /mac/landing and that's how we released originally.
