Pinterest-style displays for Jigoshop and much more

Posted in Extensions and tagged , , on by .

There’s a huge amount going on at Jigoshop at the moment. You could win an iPad Mini by answering our 5-minute survey, we’ve released Jigoshop 1.7, and there’s still a range of new extensions out this week to customise your store. There are more payment gateways than ever to choose from, some useful selling tools, and a great way to display your products with a Pinterest-style infinite scrolling wall of images.

 

Minimum Orders:

MinimumOrders

This extension is aptly-named, as you can set a minimum amount for orders by your customers. Either set a minimum product quantity, or a minimum financial amount, for purchases to be completed. Alternatively, you can also set a maximum amount or value if you need to limit purchases for whatever reason. Check out Minimum Orders now.

 

Buy Selected:

BuySelected

Want to make it easier for customers to buy in bulk? Particularly useful for wholesale and retailers to business – the Buy Selected extension allows bulk purchases to be made from product list pages. That’s great when a repeat customer wants to place a big order without having to visit every single product page! Check out Buy Selected.

 

Ajax Content Browser:

AjaxContentBrowser

The Ajax Content Browser is a cool new way to display products and other media (blog posts, videos etc), as a Pinterest-style wall which can cope with infinite scrolling. Given the huge popularity of that type of design, it will give a design lift to any store, and in addition to Jigoshop-integration, it also accommodates media from Flickr, Youtube and Vimeo. Check out Ajax Content Browser.

 

Payment Gateways for Skrill, FuturePay, PayU Russia and PayU Ukraine:

Jigoshop 1.7 now includes FuturePay payments integrated into the core program alongside PayPal Standard. But if you wish to remain on Jigoshop version 1.6 or prior – you can use our free FuturePay payment gateway to still benefit from their services.

We also have a free Skrill payment gateway, alongside the native gateways for PayU Russia and PayU Ukraine. Both PayU Poland and PayU Czech Republic are already available for Jigoshop.

Please note that the FuturePay extension is not required from Jigoshop 1.7 onwards as the same functionality is built into the Jigoshop core.

FuturePay payment gateway added to Jigoshop 1.7

Posted in Blog, Development and tagged , , on by .

One of the biggest challenges for any online store is establishing trust with your customers. Whether you’re a new or established business, it can sometimes be hard to convince potential buyers that they can safely use their credit and debit cards to make a purchase on the internet. That’s why we’re pleased to announce FuturePay payment services are now part of the core Jigoshop download.

FuturePay solves the trust issue by allowing customers to quickly sign up for an account with a $500 credit limit which they can then use to shop in any store offering it as a payment option.

Not only that, but it also makes shopping much easier as customers only need to supply their FuturePay username and password to complete their order. That makes it easier to spend money with you, particularly using mobile or tablet devices. Customers and merchants both benefit from FuturePay’s PCI compliant security and fraud prevention tools.

And as a merchant, FuturePay doesn’t charge any set-up or monthly fees, with just a small transaction fee. You’ll be able to monitor account, sales and payment information, with earnings wired or deposited into your merchant banking account.

You can download Jigoshop now or update your existing installation to gain access to FuturePay (You’ll be prompted to sign up for a FuturePay account if you don’t already have one). For anyone preferring to stick with an older version of Jigoshop, we also have a standalone extension if required.

Please note that FuturePay is available to be used by any merchant and store – but only customers residing in the U.S can currently make purchases via FuturePay.

Download Jigoshop 1.7 now to benefit from FuturePay. You also get a number of tweaks and fixes, updated Swedish translation courtesy of Peter Hjalmarsson, updated .pot files, and the addition of a setting for default payment gateway on the checkout.
