Store 1.5 released

Its that time again! For those of you that missed the latest PixelBuzz from Ellislab, we’re excited to announce the release of Store 1.5. New in this version is a major improvement to our payment processing library, featuring fully integrated Authorize/Capture support, allowing your clients to authorize credit card payments during checkout, then capture them a few days later when they ship the goods. Payments can even be refunded, right from within the control panel. Also in this release is a brand new set of example templates, which have been redesigned using clear, semantic markup, and are packed full of reusable code snippets, designed to get your e-commerce project up and running as quickly as possible.

Store in the wild

Most recently, the San Antonio Rodeo website (developed by Parscale Media and featured on ExpressionEngine.com) was launched using Store, which received a whopping 2.4 million hits in just 20 days. Just a few weeks later, they followed it up with another impressive website launch, melissaguerra.com, which also uses Store. Newism also chose Store to power their brand new EE-Garage add-on website.

As always, we’d love to hear from you ([email protected]) if you have a Store project to show off to the community.

The monthly draw

“Without a doubt the finest cart system on EE. I’ve used them all and the others aren’t a patch one Store in my eyes. As eCommerce experts, this is now our platform of choice. The support is also fantastic - I can’t wait to see where the developers go next with this one. Onwards and upwards.”

Its feedback like this that makes it all worthwhile! Last month we mentioned we were starting a monthly licence giveaway to a lucky Store evangelist, and this time the prize goes to ‘T2theC’ on Devot-ee. Keep the tweets and reviews coming - it means a lot!

gEEnius wanted

There are so many great features we have planned for Store, but so few hours in the day. So we’ve decided to expand our team, and are currently looking for a talented CodeIgniter/EE developer. If this sounds like you, click here to check out the full job description.

Thats it from us Kiwis for now, have a great Easter and we’ll be in touch again soon!
