Our marketplace contains both free and paid modules, with a good selection of both. We even have modules that have been specially developed by our community for thirty bees. Some of the modules have quite a bit of features, more than others that are paid. This article is going to focus on some of the free modules in our store to extend your site.
The Revws module is made by one of our community members @datakick. This module greatly extends the review capabilities of your thirty bees site. Some of the features from the module are:
- Allows both customer and guest reviews
- Ability to moderate reviews
- You can add multiple review criteria
- Custom review critera
- Customers can edit or delete reviews
- Structured data support
- Voting on reviews and reporting options

- and many more features
Having more reviews on your site not only increases the SEO of your products, it also helps reassure customers of the quality of your products. This has a two-fold effect, it brings new customers to your products and it gives them the information they need to pull the trigger and purchase your products.
Krona is a powerful module for building loyalty and adding gamification to your website. The module was developed by one of our community members @wakabayashi. A lot of the power of the Krona module is the ability for it to connect with other modules. The module can hook into the Revws module, so if a customer leaves a review, you can reward them for the review. Some of the use cases of the module are:
- Reward orders and let customers convert points to coupons
- Reward actions in your shop like leaving reviews
- Assign customers to new discount groups based off of criteria
- Publish a leader board where users can compete against each other
- and many more other cases
This module can help you not only build a loyal customer base, it can help your customers compete against each other, helping your site create more of a community feel.
Blackhole for Bad Bots
The blackhole for bad bots acts as a honeypot for bots on your site. It adds a hidden link on your pages that when a bot accesses, it addes their IP address to a ban list, banning them from your site. The module is written in a way that it will not block any good bots such as Googlebot or Bingbot. It will only block the bad bots that disregard your robots.txt file on your site. This module was also developed by our community member @datakick.
Dash Activity v6
In the stock thirty bees Dash Activity module we have removed some of the internal stats and linked them to Google Analytics. This module brings back the use of the internal statistics, so you do not have to use Google Analytics with your site. This can helpful for GDPR compliance. This module is developed by @SLICK_303, one of our long time community members.
The PriceAlert module is a pretty innovative module. It allows your customers to set up alerts for the pricing of products on your shop. When the price drops below a specific level, the customers are sent an alert email letting them know. This is especially useful for customers that like to shop sales and get good deals on products. This module can help recover sales and create new customers by attracting them to your sales. This module was also developed by @datakick
