WordPress Shopping Cart plugin v1.4.7
We worked on a new release of the WordPress Shopping cart plugin and it is available now. Several improvements/fixes were made to the plugin and it also has some new features which came from customer feature requests. We will continue to implement the features into the plugin that you guys need and are asking for. You are our inspiration!
You can read the detailed release notes but here are some of the feature highlights.
WordPress 3.0 Compatibility
No changes/fixes were made to the plugin specific to WordPress 3.0 and it was compatible right off the bat. We want to officially announce compatibility of the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin with WordPress 3.0.
If you do find any issues or problems related to WordPress 3.0 when you are using the Checkout plugin, we would greatly appreciate it if you can report it to us.
Page Template Settings
When you have the plugin configured to create WordPress pages for your shop, three page template settings become available in Checkout > Configuration under ‘General Configuration’. You can set the global/default page template for products, categories and suppliers individually.
Additionally, you’ll be able to choose a page template for each individual product, category and supplier when you save them in their respective sections. That way, you can have different products, categories and suppliers display on different page templates as it suits your needs.
Delete Credit Card Details
This is a useful and security orientated feature for shops using the Manual POS payment method. When a customer places an order using the Manual POS payment method, their credit card details are stored in the database in order for the merchant/administrator to be able to charge the card using their POS later on.
Remember to write down the credit card details and charge the card first before deleting the details.
PayPal Surcharge Feature
You can now turn on PayPal surcharge in the configuration and specify a fixed amount and/or a percentage which should be added to the order total. Please note that shipping will be included in the surcharge though tax will be excluded. With this feature, you can let your customers pay for the PayPal fees of receiving a payment. See more details on PayPal fees.
The surcharge can be turned on under Checkout > Configuration under the ‘PayPal’ settings box.
