Downloadables work again after a WP option bug was introduced in WP e-Commerce 3.8.8
Variations support will be introduced in the next Plugin update, we’re working hard to deliver support for this across the Premium Plugin suite.
Hi WPER’s, the 1.3.2 Plugin update of Manual Ordering adds an ‘Add Order’ button to the Users listing as well as User Profile within the WordPress Administration, enabling store owners to quickly search and generate Sales linked to a User without manually selecting a User from the dropdown field on the Add Order page.
Another big Plugin update weekend is nearing, here’s some of the features being released this weekend and throughout next week across the WP e-Commerce Plugin suite:
Support for automatic Plugin updates via the WordPress Administration > Updates system
Multi-language support through WPML-integration
Overhaul of Plugin file structures (e.g. /templates/admin/…, /templates/store/…, etc.)
File download support within Manual Ordering
Here’s some of the Plugins/Jobs being worked on internally for WP e-Commerce:
A CSV exporter for WP e-Commerce enabling existing store owners to merge Product changes back into their store via Excel or their preferred spreadsheet-editor using Product Importer Deluxe (3.8 only at this point)
HTML e-mail support for Admin Reports, Purchase Receipts and reminders within WP e-Commerce
Get Google Analytics e-Commerce tracking working – again – with WP e-Commerce
Theme styling of free and Premium Plugins to suit Matt’s suite of WP e-Commerce Theme’s at Storefront Themes
Store owners can now use Manual Ordering to process site memberships with integration for the Members Access Plugin available from GetShopped.org for WP e-Commerce.
Previously store owners would need to create a Sale from the WordPress store and Checkout with the customers details then manually increment the Sale Status to Accepted Payment. No longer!
Manual Ordering let’s you create your Sale and assign the Sale to a customer or guest all from the WordPress Administration, and with support for Offline Credit Card Processing it’s never been easier to create Sales from the WordPress backend.
You read right, Manual Ordering now includes support enabling store owners to attach offline credit card details to new Sales through integration with Offline Credit Card Processing.
This feature is ideal for store call centers or operators accepting mail orders, Manual Ordering integrates neatly with Offline Credit Card Processing linking settings in OCCP with the Add Order Page within the WordPress Administration.
Existing customers of Manual Ordering can purchase Offline Credit Card Processing to benefit from this today, visa versa.
A quick update that I’ve gone through and can confirm full-compatibility across the Visser Labs WP e-Commerce Plugin suite with WordPress 3.0.2, so what are you waiting for, start updating.
Note: As always, perform a full backup of your WP e-Commerce store – that means files and database – as it only takes a single corrupt file during transfer to knock out your daily earnings. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The 3.0.2 update is a mandatory security update for all previous WordPress versions which plugs a few Core vulnerabilities and miscellaneous fixes. The following Visser Labs Plugins have been tested with WordPress 3.0.2:
