Jigoshop 1.8 adds WorldPay to core:

We want you to be online and accepting customers as quickly as possible, so you can now implement WorldPay payment services within the core Jigoshop download, along with the existing PayPayl and FuturePay options. WorldPay already work with more than 500,000 businesses, specialising in small and medium-sized companies, so you can start accepting all major card payments and currencies with 24 hour support and fraud screening for your peace of mind.

WorldPay Payments are now included in the free core Jigoshop 1.8 download

Obviously you’re still able to choose any preferred choice from our wide range of Jigoshop payment gateways, but now you get 3 options included in your free core download to let you start generating revenue immediately.

Jigoshop 1.8 also includes a new Javascript Checkout Field Validation, to ensure that customers complete the checkout correctly, and improve conversion rates. Highlighting any errors straight away means that customers can correct them without getting frustrated.

Jigoshop has also got quicker, with various tweaks and changes particularly to front end Javascript, and we’ve also cleaned up reporting to make it even easier to see how your online store is doing.

    Please help! My site was working perfectly until I installed 1.8. Now my Add to cart buttons never appear and no one can buy anything! http://www.vendettavapor.com

    I just added Contact Form 7 to my WordPress website that is using Twelve Eleven and Jigoshop 1.8 and I get an error:

    “Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method.”

    .I did nothing to the Contact Form setup and just added it to a page, displayed the page then filled the form and hit send. My hosting account in Yahoo does not see anything wrong so what should I do next?

    I look forward to your reply,
