App Info and Builder
Using the RGP Catalog Builder gives you the opportunity to bring your catalog into the 21st Century, meaning your customers can not only use the catalog on their iPads or Android tablets, but they can also carry it in a shirt pocket on their phones!
When your sale is finished and ready to upload, you can send it to the RGP Catalog App (for iPads, Android Tablets, iPhones & Android Phones). It's an easy, one-click process, that uploads all of your horse pages with any photos and/or videos that you have provided directly to the RGP App!
Note: Do not send your Catalog to the App until the catalog is being printed. For legal reasons, the app catalog should exactly match the printed catalog.
Build App Listings
From the My Sales page, click on Edit Current Sale Information, then choose the RGP App Info and Builder at the top of the screen. When your sale is finished and ready to upload, click the Build App Listings button. From there, you will see two upload buttons:
-Choose Option 1 to optionally upload sale schedule, forms, etc. and the entire sale to the app
-Choose Option 2 to send only your sale (pages, indices, photos, etc) to the RGP App
Note: The Non-Horse pages should be arranged in the order you want them to appear (normally, the same order as the printed catalog) as a single PDF. This can include your Sale Schedule, Terms & Conditions, Hotel Accommodations, etc. DO NOT include your Horse Pages or Indexes in your PDF.
Note: RGP will examine and approve the catalog before it is made live on the Catalog App, which can take up to 24 business hours.
Your catalog will remain on the RGP Catalog App in perpetuity and will be available in the App archives in future years, unless you ask to have it removed.
The RGP Catalog App will NOT accept horses with no hip numbers.
It is recommended that you wait and send the catalog to the App after the printed book is at the printer’s. To preserve the integrity of the information being presented to buyers, the Catalog App pages must exactly match the pages in the printed catalog. Buyers must have confidence that both versions of the catalog are the same.
The catalog can be re-submitted to the RGP Catalog App if Supplements have been added or the Non-Horse PDF pages need to be changed. Please keep in mind that the catalog will need to be re-approved and it can take an additional 24 business hours before the changes are reflected in the App.
Managing Rotating Ads on the RGP Catalog App
You are easily able to control the content and location of Catalog App ads your customers may be interested in purchasing, or you can use the ad space for your own sale company or ranch! Ads can be included at the bottom of your Catalog App sale horse pages.
From the same RGP App Info and Builder tab, you can access the RGP Banner Ad Manager. Simply click on the Manage Rotating Ads button and choose your PNG or JPG ads to upload. From here you can choose the location for your ads, edit banners, delete banners, etc.
Sizes: The banners you upload must be non-transparent PNG image files with dimensions of EXACTLY 768 X 80.
Note: If you choose not to run ads, an RGP Catalog Builder Graphic will appear in the ad spaces. (Uploading an ad is as easy as putting a photo on Facebook!)
