  • When to Upgrade Your eCommerce Software
    real time quotes interface for a few of their shipping options Unfortunately there was no advanced warning that these changes were coming ShopSite like many other carts had to scramble to adjust to the changes Obviously patches were easiest to do on the latest version of ShopSite and were released to hosts and merchants using v10 sp2 service pack 2 first Those merchants that were already running sp2 could have their host copy over a few files and quickly be back to getting the latest USPS rate quotes This was much quicker and easier than for the merchants that needed to upgrade from an earlier version of ShopSite before applying the patches A more recent example happened just last week when PayPal moved their data center for Payflow Pro users PayPal warned both merchants and us of the coming move and no problem was expected However there was an unforeseen change in how some of the data had been formatted transmitted This caused a problem with some stores that were running the original version 10 of ShopSite but it had no effect on stores running service pack 2 ShopSite 10 was released in 2008 service pack 1 sp1 was released in 2009 and service pack 2 sp2 was released in July of 2010 There s no software fee for the v10 users to get sp1 or sp2 so the reason for not upgrading sooner was probably either a if it ain t broke don t fix it mindset or concern that upgrading may break something Fear that an upgrade could break something is a valid concern A software upgrade can change the way something previously worked so it is often prudent to wait a little while before upgrading That being said I would think that within 1 3 months any significant upgrade issues would have surfaced It is easy to ask your host how upgrades have gone or to check with other ShopSite users in the forum If you do not immediately need the new features that an upgrade provides waiting a few months for any minor wrinkles to be ironed out makes sense However the more successful your store is the more important it is to stay current with the latest and greatest version The internet is a rapidly changing animal ShopSite is keeping pace by continuously evolving to support the latest interfaces features and standards It s great when you can use the same product for 10 years but our recommendation is that you upgrade more often than once a decade Posted under Administration Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website iPad 2 and Ecommerce Google Product Search Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack 2 Top 5 eCommerce Posts for September Categories Administration 5

  • Should I Care About Facebook Open Graph Tags?
    looking at a web page They are hidden to visitors Instead you need to view the html source to see them Viewing the source you d see something like this for an older theme not using Open Graph tags You can see that Facebook used the title and description tags and figured out where the image was by looking at the page Here is what the code looks like with a newer theme Tags that begin with og are the Open Graph tags used by Facebook Here there are a number of these tags that are populated from data already supplied to ShopSite when setting up a product s More Info page We can see specific data being passed to Facebook such as the type of page in this example a product page the image URL as well as using the One Line Advertisement field to populate the og description The nice thing is that you as a merchant do not need to spend additional time populating new fields ShopSite will automatically take your current data and place it in the appropriate fields The only new field that you can optionally populate is the One Line Advertisement Testing A Post To see how your Facebook share links will appear in a Facebook feed simply click the share button on one of your product pages or enter the URL for the product page into the Write Post field on your Facebook wall but then don t complete it by clicking Post However realize that Facebook saves caches a copy of your page you will not see changes reflected on subsequent test posts using the same page or URL The best way to view what your posts will look like is to use the Facebook Debugger Just enter a URL of the page you d want your shoppers to share and view the results If you make a change to the page tell the Debugger to Fetch new scrape information Once you are happy with your post s look you can post it yourself if you are running a promotion or know that you are all set once your shoppers share from your site For designers who would like to add these Open Graph social media meta tags to a custom template please refer to the custom template cookbook for product pages Tags Facebook Posted under Facebook Twitter Google Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Top 5 eCommerce Posts for June Top 5 eCommerce Posts for July Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack 2 Top 5 eCommerce Posts for September Categories Administration 5 Announcements 2 Facebook Twitter Google 6 Industry Articles 38 iPad 6 Merchandising 12 Mobile Commerce 4 Payment Methods 5 Security 8 Shipping 5 Shopping

  • Why Use Facebook Connect?
    s default method You ll note in the above screen that two buttons are inactive faded out Password and Payment The Password button would normally allow a shopper to change their registered password but since this function is now controlled by Facebook they cannot change their Facebook password from within ShopSite The Payment button would allow a shopper to modify payment settings for their credit card To meet PCI requirements and to ensure that if someone got a hold of a shopper s Facebook password that they could not check out as the shopper payment information is not saved for customers using Facebook Connect A shopper using Facebook Connect will still need to enter their credit card information or sign in to their PayPal account when they check out So is it useful to use Facebook connect According to Facebook sites that use Facebook Connect as an alternate to account registration have seen a 30 200 increase in registration on their sites In another testament to the power of Facebook and Connect in particular the CEO of JibJab has said It took us 8 years to reach 1 5 million registered users in the era of email It took us only 5 months to acquire the same number of users on Facebook Even more noteworthy might be the facts that we did it all via Facebook Connect While your site may not see the high percentage numbers touted by Facebook it certainly makes sense to offer it if you currently allow customer registration If some of your shoppers love Facebook like many of my friends do then using Facebook to sign in is probably what they d want to do As a merchant you want to make the checkout process as easy and convenient as possible and it would be hard to get easier than a one click login for your shoppers Posted under Facebook Twitter Google Comment RSS Trackback If you like this post then consider sharing it with others Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website New ShopSite Login Increased Purchases from Shoppers using Tablets Recent Posts Top 4 eCommerce Posts for December Top 5 eCommerce Posts for November Top 5 eCommerce Posts for October New ShopSite Release v12 service pack 2 Top 5 eCommerce Posts for September Categories Administration 5 Announcements 2 Facebook Twitter Google 6 Industry Articles 38 iPad 6 Merchandising 12 Mobile Commerce 4 Payment Methods 5 Security 8 Shipping 5 Shopping Cart 3 Social Networks 1 Tips and Tricks 1 Uncategorized 2 Archives Archives Select Month December 2015 2 November 2015 1 October 2015 1 September 2015 2 August 2015 1 July 2015 2 June 2015 3 April 2015 1 March 2015 2 February 2015 2 January 2015 2 December 2014 1 October 2014 2 September 2014 1 August 2014 2 July 2014 1 May 2014 2 April 2014 1 March 2014 2 February 2014 1 January 2014 1 December 2013 2 November 2013
