Payments

  • In-context Checkout by PayPal
    Evolved from the well-known "Express Checkout", PayPal's "In-context Checkout" is a new feature aimed at simplifying the checkout flow for your customers. With this feature the number of clicks for the buyer is decreased to 2 (or 3, if the buyer is not logged in to their PayPal account). A user is NOT taken to the PayPal site to complete the transaction — it all happens right on your website. Moreover, right on the page the customer is viewing, as it opens a minibrowser above that very page. If the transaction is successful, the customer is provided with an order confirmation; otherwise the customer is redirected to a regular checkout page so they can try again.

Modules

  • A new module: Custom order statuses
    The new module is available within the packages "GoldPlus" and "Platinum". It enables the store administrator to create custom order statuses. To add a new one, go to "Settings" - >"Order statuses".
