CubeCart in 2019
Posted by on 07 January 2019 10:31 AM

Firstly we would like to wish all CubeCart merchants a very happy and prosperous new year. We hope you had a very merry Christmas with friends and family.

In 2019 we have a lot planned...

Q1
CubeCart Hosted will be launched. Currently in testing stage it will be possible to launch a hosted CubeCart store by simply entering your email address on a form. Your store login will be sent via email in seconds. More info to follow in coming weeks.

6.2.3 will be launched. Many may have noticed a slight slowdown in development. This has been for two reason. The first reason is that 6.2.2 is really very stable and secondly that we have been channeling our energy into our soon to be launched hosted platform.

Q2/Q3/Q4
We are planning to offer a wider array of official CubeCart themes and extensions including a brand new PayPal integration.

Many thanks for your continued support,

 

Al

PayPal Express Checkout - Now with Smart Buttons!
Posted by on 21 December 2018 01:03 PM

Our PayPal Express Checkout integration now has smart button support. With Smart Payment Buttons, consumers can choose which payment method they want to use. The checkout dynamically shows the most relevant payment methods at checkout, including PayPal, Credit/Debit Cards, Venmo, ELV/SEPA (Germany only) and PayPal Credit (US only). Merchants can also control the size, shape and colour.

In order to use Smart Buttons merchants will need to upgrade their extension to 1.2.0, change their "Checkout Mode" and obtain a Client ID. Further instructions can be found on the extension configuration screen.

6.2 Release Notes - Please Read!!

* These features will require skin updates if you do not use the default "Foundation" skin from the 6.2 release.

This release has a clear cache on demand tool which significantly optimises the caching system and lowers server load. This means that inventory or configuration changes made in the admin control panel will not be reflected on the front end of the store until the "Clear Cache" button is clicked. This can be found at the top right hand side of every page of the admin control panel. We very much appreciate that this may be seen as an unwelcome new feature but the technical significance is worthy. Unless you have a critical change to make we suggest clearing the cache habitually at the end of each admin session. If the cache is not cleared it may take up to 24 hours for your changes to show.  

To help comply with GDPR CubeCart 6.2 now has "double opt-in" for email marketing signup and a tool to create a report of all customer data based on an email address. This can be found in the "Customer" section of the admin control panel under the "GDPR Report" tab. A customer can be "forgotten" by deleting their account, newsletter subscription, review(s) and any orders they may have placed. Please note that it may be a legal obligation to keep their order data on file if you have an existing financial contract. The GDPR report can be disclosed to your customer printed or saved as a PDF and/or used to help remove their data from the system. To be GDPR compliant please be sure to have a suitable privacy policy which should contain other such information such as what each site cookie does. Further information and support may be available from your local "Information Commissioner" such as the ICO (in the UK). 

GDPR is still a very confused and misunderstood subject of which there is no one solution for every business. We will prioritise  further development to help compliance based on your feedback if merchants feel they still need extra tools.
