New and updated translations for Slovenian, German, Croatian and Ukranian are just some of the reasons to upgrade to the latest version of Jigoshop, which is now available as an update for existing Jigoshop users.
We’ve also taken time over the Christmas period to improve a number of fixes and tweaks. They cover variations, free shipping, better reporting, and improvements to the Products on Sale shortcode.
As always, we’d recommend anyone updating to ensure they have backed up their site before starting the upgrade procedure.

We’re also working on some major improvements for future releases, including our constant evolution of tax classes and shipping to make running an online shop, and making purchases, as easy as possible. We’re currently coordinating with the developers of all our existing and future shipping extensions regarding our next release – which will include better handling of multiple tax classes – great news for areas such as Canada.
And we also hope you had a great Christmas and New Year! We’ll be doing all we can to help you continue to build your Jigoshop business in 2014!
We’ve just published four new extensions on Jigoshop.com, covering Stripe and WorldPay payment processing, Doc It documentation and Shipworks shipping tools.
Stripe is a payment service which doesn’t charge set-up or monthly fees, has no minimum charges, or costs for failed payments. So we’ve rebuilt our Stripe payment gateway for Jigoshop to provide a simple, easy and effective way to use Stripe for your transactions, including allowing customers to stay on your site rather than being sent to an external payment page. Check out the Stripe for Jigoshop extension.
Quick shipping and delivery gets you happier customers, but what happens when you have part of an order ready to be sent? Jigoshop Partial Orders makes it easier to send and track available products immediately whilst being able to then fulfill the completed order when the remaining items are available. Check out Jigoshop Partial Orders.
WorldPay is included in the core Jigoshop download, but if you have SSL certificiation and PCI certification for your online shop and servers, then you can remove the need for customers to visit a WordPay hosted payment page for security reasons. Check out the WorldPay XML Direct Gateway for Jigoshop.
Add more information on products or services, and display it in your sidebar, with the free Doc It extension, which includes colour choices, navigational breadcrumbs and the option to use custom CSS for styling. Check out Doc It. (Developers SlickRemix also created the Jigoshop Split PayPal Sales extension which builds on the PayPal functionality built into Jigoshop for better reporting)
Shipworks provide a range of services to make shipping orders quicker and easier, including creating shipping labels and automatically updating order statuses. And the Shipworks Bridge for Jigoshop means you can integrate their order management tools into your online store quickly and easily.
