We are excited to announce the release of CubeCart 6.1.0 which comes with a number of great new features. 

What's New?

  • Dashboard notifications for extension updates (see upgrade notes).
  • Font Awesome replaced with SVG in Foundation skin for optimisation with smaller page loads (up to 107KB smaller).
  • SVG support for logo.
  • Redis cache support.
  • Automatic admin folder/file renaming on install for improved security (see upgrade notes).
  • Automated admin file and folder renaming after auto/forced upgrade based on config values.
  • Store email log with preview of rich and plain text version.
  • Log retention (default 30 days).
  • Reviews can be added via admin control panel.
  • "Available for purchase" field added to import tool.
  • Free shipping option for coupon codes.
  • Smarty template engine updated to 3.1.30.
  • Email content and template syntax validation on save.
  • Improvements to front end catalogue search for partial word matches.
  • Improvements to mail()/SMTP test tool.
  • Unsettled orders tab improvements on dashboard for print, bulk print and status change.
  • Merchants can now specify featured products. 
  • Bulk price update tool now includes quantity discounts and product options.
  • Bulk product assign to category tool improved.
  • Bulk price change tool separated from "assign to category" tool.
  • "More" pagination memory on browser back button on front end of "Foundation" skin.
  • Improved admin control panel file manager with drag and drop image uploads (powered by DropzoneJS).
  • Misc bug fixes & tweaks.

Upgrade Notes
Upgrading may (depending on write permissions) give you a new random admin login URL which is designed to enhance security. This has been developed to help prevent unwanted attention. Please make a note of this new path which will be shown under large bold red text on the final step of upgrade and update your bookmarks.

If you do not see this message the admin login URL will remain as it did before.

If you didn't see this message and the old admin login no longer loads the expected login page please check the included/global.inc.php file for the "adminFile" value and substitute this instead of the admin.php part of your old bookmark.

Notifications for extension updates will only occur once the store is at 6.1.0 and once existing extensions have been reinstalled via token method.

CubeCart version 5 End of Life (24 November 2016)
Posted by on 24 August 2016 01:57 PM

The majority of merchants have already upgraded from version 5 to version 6. This upgrade is straightforward, reliable and version 6 is stable. 

For this reason we will no longer release updates or support version 5 from 24th November 2016.

If you are still using version 5 then there is no reason not to upgrade to version 6. Your skin is compatible as are any existing plugins/extensions/modules.

Please do contact us if you have any questions about our upgrade services.

A seamless experience
The new checkout introduces the in-context user journey for PayPal Express Checkout, helping improve conversion rates with an easier way to pay online. The streamlined design speeds buyers through payment - without leaving your website - for a more secure and seamless checkout.

How to enable on CubeCart - https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/paypal-pro-express-checkout (1.1.3 or higher recommended)

Improves conversion rates
In-Context Checkout supports PayPal’s One Touch, which is an optional PayPal feature that allows buyers to complete purchases faster. When buyers log in to PayPal from a mobile device or from a desktop, tablet or laptop, they can choose to stay logged in to PayPal for easier, faster checkout with all eligible merchants. From that moment buyers will skip the PayPal login on future purchases across websites if they use the same device and browser. More info on http://www.paypal.com/onetouch

PayPal’s new checkout conversion rate outperforms its competitors by 36%, according to the 2016 comScore study (here).
