Plugin update: Offline Credit Card Processing – 1.7

OCCP has made it to 1.7! This major Plugin update removes the dependance on a merchant file stored locally within the WP e-Commerce Plugin’s ‘merchants’ directory, what this means for you is a more reliable Plugin (no risk of file permissions or overzealous WordPress security Plugins) as well as Plugin update safe templating support for the Checkout form fields coming just around the corner.

Also included in this release is a few validation changes affecting American Express and for new store’s where no accepted cards have been selected. I’ll be releasing label support for accepted cards in the next Plugin update as I want to also overhaul the e-mail engine that is sent to the store owner to support templating via the Settings page (as is done for the Purchase Receipt/Admin Report) as well as HTML support via Printable Invoices (ala Store Invoices in the new year).

As always, download your Plugin update from Premium Plugin Updates or jump over to the Plugin detail page for more information.

Plugin update: Offline Credit Card Processing – 1.6.9

The 1.6.9 release is a minor Plugin update that adds support for 15-character American Express cards, I’m prepping the 1.7 major Plugin update for release before the years end adding an interface to Credit Card labels and icons as well as some improvements to the administration of processing Sales.

Plugin update: Offline Credit Card Processing – 1.5.7

The 1.5.7 Plugin update follows on from the last Plugin update adding filters to allow third-party payment option support as well as overhauled validation at Checkout.

The big changes in this Plugin update are in the templating department, web developers can now copy the OCCP template files from /templates/ to their WordPress theme directory just like in other Plugins; this will be extended further in the next Plugin update to allow easy template support for the Checkout payment option which is not yet supported. Also joining the Settings page is a set of labels to manage the Card Type, Card Name, Card Number, Card Expiry and Card CVV, all of these fields can be renamed at any time within the WordPress Administration (e.g. Card Expiry to Valid Through).

As always, download your Plugin update from Premium Plugin Updates or jump over to the Plugin detail page for more information.

Plugin update: Offline Credit Card Processing – 1.5.6

The 1.5.6 Plugin update packs a few features into a minor Plugin update. Firstly there’s a new Card Type field appearing on the Checkout page, this field feeds off the Accepted methods card list (e.g. VISA, Mastercard, PayPal, etc.). You can show and hide the Card Type depending on your store setup. I’ve added an Idea to allow the layout style to be changed from the Settings page. (e.g. dropdown, list, checkboxes, etc.)

In this update there’s also CC – BCC coming soon – support for sending the Admin Report to multiple addresses (e.g. store owner and accountant). To top it off behind the hood the card list has been overhauled, it’s now more streamlined and will have a third-party filter to allow other card types to be added in the next Plugin update.

Processing WP e-Commerce Credit Card Orders Offline

I’m very happy to announce the latest Plugin off the production line, Offline Credit Card Processing for WP e-Commerce. You can now securely collect customer credit card information for processing offline through your bank merchant account or business terminal.

This is the first collaboration with Roy Ho from 1 Plus Design who has made this Plugin for WP e-Commerce a reality and delivered a secure, well-designed solution.

Customer credit card information are securely handled by splitting the credit card number where one part (e.g. 43603323) is stored with the purchase details in the database and the other part (e.g. 03217283) is e-mailed to the store owner. The two parts can then be matched up for offline credit card processing.

Store owners can drop this Plugin into their WP e-Commerce store and immediately process offline orders without costly customisation of their existing store. Check out the detailed Product page for Offline Credit Card Processing.
