2Checkout Payment Gateway for Jigoshop:

Languages range from Dutch and English to Japanese and Simplified Chinese, and Payment Currencies go from the Argentina Peso and Australian Dollar to the Turkish Lira and United Arab Emirates Dirham.

When an order is being completed, the customer is taken to 2Checkout to make a payment with with PCI Compliant service, meaning that you don’t have to worry about SSL certificates on your own site. After payment the consumer will see a thank you page - and by using the 2Checkout Pass-Through-Products Parameters, you don’t have to create products in the 2Checkout sellers area. Check out the new plugin and see what you think…


Canada Post Shipping for Jigoshop:

Use the sophisticated shipping service from Canada Post’s Sell-Online service and calculate the most accurate rates for your product’s size and weight, dividing each order into packages of 30kg or less. The plugin will take care of working out how many packages need to be sent, the cost of each package, and the total customer cost, along with delivery options for domestic and international shipments. The shipping options are:

  • Canada Post Priority Worldwide INTL
  • Canada Post Small Packets Air
  • Canada Post Parcel Surface
  • Canada Post Small Packets Surface
  • Canada Post XPressPost International
  • Canada Post Priority Courier
  • Canada Post Xpresspost
  • Canada Post Expedited
  • Canada Post Regular

Note: You’ll need to have Canada set as your base country and be using Canadian Dollars for this plugin to work.

So if you’re a Canadian business owner or looking to start one up, this is the plugin for you!

Stripe is an interesting payment service which launched earlier this year. It offers clear commission rates amongst some other great features, so we’re pleased to say you can now use the new Stripe Payment Gateway to plug it straight into Jigoshop.

Importantly, you’ll be able to take payments from anyone with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards, and the minimum chargeable amount is just $0.50. Stripe then takes a set 2.9% + $0.30 with no other fees for set-up etc.

Other features including subscription/recurring billing, and support for data portability, meaning they’ll help you to migrate your details if you leave the service. plus they store credit card details etc, meaning you don’t have to.

Please note that to receive funds from Stripe itself (which are paid on a 7-day rolling schedule), you or your business will need to be based in the U.S for the time being. Stripe are working on accommodating businesses around the globe, and this doesn’t affect which countries your customers can be located in.
