Posted in Extensions and tagged , , , , , , on by .

We’ve got two cool new extensions available for Jigoshop, adding to both the huge range currently available and the frankly massive list finishing development and due to imminent release!



2Checkout Payment Gateway for Jigoshop:

2Checkout is a hugely popular and successful international payment service which is available in over 200 countries, with a choice of 8 payment methods, 15 languages and 26 currencies. 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!

9 new plugins for Jigoshop: Gateways, Facebook Tab, Wishlist and more!

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

A massive nine new plugins have been released for Jigoshop, as a result of popular code marketplace Code Canyon issuing a bounty to encourage eCommerce submissions, in the same way as we offer a mixture of upfront payments and revenue share options for anyone selling their plugin via our own Extensions section (Plus our new Affiliates scheme).

And it’s great to see that Jigoshop is one of the most enthusiastically supported of the eCommerce solutions listed on the site. The result is that 9 new plugins have been released, in addition to the 28 existing plugins available here (and that number is growing every day!). And they provide some very interesting and cool functions to add to your Jigoshop installation.

  • Payment Express Gateway for Jigoshop: Developed by patsatech, this enables credit card payments via Payment Express.
  • AlertPay Payment Gateway: Developed by patsatech, AlertPay allows payments by credit cards or bank accounts by almost anyone with an email address.
  • Jigoshop Australia Post Shipping Calculator: Developed by dtbaker, (who also designed the MommyBlogger theme for Jigoshop) it adds automatic postage calculations for Australian Jigoshop users.
  • Jigoshop Products - Facebook Tab: Also by dtbaker, the Jigoshop Products Facebook Tab is a nifty way to quickly integrate products into a Facebook page - allowing customers to add to their cart before leaving Facebook to complete the checkout process.

  • Product Slider Carousel: ByRDever - a jQuery based slider carousel which is customisable and fully responsive.
  • Fancy Product Review: By jamesckemp, this allows product thumbnails to trigger a fancy preview gallery when a user roles over them. That means a user can quickly and easily larger images - handy if you are selling products with lots of cool details.

Also a brilliant way for users to remind themselves of items they’ve previously been interested in.

What a great list of additional features to enhance your Jigoshop store, along our list from Affiliates Pro to Upsells.
