Manual Ordering gets Members Access Plugin integration

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.
