eCorner Planned Upgrade Outage on Thursday February 2nd, 2017

 

Please be advised that between the hours of 10:00 PM on Thursday 2nd February and 4:00AM Friday 3rd February (AEST) eCorner will be carrying out an update of our mass-hosted environment (all cloud-based online shops). The purpose of the upgrade is to update the core ePages software (to 6.17.52). During that time your website and adminstration systems will not be available.

The upgrade will be predominately for maintenance with a variety of fixes and improvements. These are aimed at creating a more stable, secure and faster system. However there are new features and services that will be added after the upgrade is complete.


Integration with Spreedly

 

Integration with the payment gateway hub Spreedly will be available immediate after the upgrade. Spreedly provide a sevice that enables your website to connect to many different payment service providers and will allow your customers credit card information to be "tokenised" and securely stored in a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant fashion. The first payment method made available via Spreedly is Stripe an international payment provider that allows you  to take payments in multiple currencies.

 

New local services for your online store

 

We are constantly looking for ways to help you succeed online by improving support for local services. We have been working with our partners to bring you the following new functionality which is nearing completion. All these features will be available to all Cloud store customers as well as any Enterprise customer on ePages 6.17.41 or higher. They will be available via the administartion of your eCorner online store. These new services will be enabled shortly after the upgrade.

 

ZipMoney

 

ZipMoney & ZipPay payment integration – full payment integration with both of ZipPay’s payment options for your customers to buy now and pay later. ZipMoney allows you to provide instant credit for your customers online. It works in many ways like a traditional payment gateway however your customers are provided with a credit facility that enables them to buy online. Typically it will suit merchants that have products of higher value to sell online.

To enable this service you will need an account with ZipMoney.

 

Couriers Please shipping integration

 

Direct integration with Couriers Please to calculate and facilitate shipping to your customers. Couriers Please offer shipping services throughout Australia. The integration includes full support for their services including the ability to book pickup, print consignment notes and labels.

To enable this service you will need an account with Couriers Please.

NOTE: Couriers Please integration will be available from mid-February please contact eCorner for more information.

 

eWay Rapid integration

 

Updated eWay support for all of eWay’s latest payment and security features. This new integration will be available alongside of the current eWay integration. You will need to discuss the move from the legacy support to eWAY Rapid both with eCorner and eWAY and we can assist you to make the change. eWAY Rapid comes for some great new features for anti-fraud and tokenised payments.

If you would like any additional information, or want to look at getting any of these integrations set up for your store, please let us know.

To enable this service you will need an account with eWAY.

 

Wordpress Online Store

 

After the upgrade is completed you will be able to integrate your eCorner online store within a Wordpress website. You can find more information at the Wordpress offical website or on the ePages Blog. Merchants are now able to display and sell products from their ePages shop directly on their WordPress site – without additional costs involved. Customers buying on a WordPress site are redirected to the ePages checkout process seamlessly, meaning optimal convenience and success for both retailers and consumers alike.

 

All of website SSL security

 

During our last upgrade eCorner enabled every website to have SSL (HTTPS) on all pages of the website. In the past SSL only applied to pages such as the shopping basket and registration pages. Recently there has been a move to ensure every page on a website is protected by SSL. This change has beed supported by Google and will possibly provide your website with improved Google search results.

In order to enable site wide SSL you need to have a private SSL certificate added to your website. eCorner can provide COMODO Positive SSL certiificate which are available for 2 years installed for $185 inc GST. We are providing a special offer of 50% off new SSL certificates until the end of February. You can use the coupon code 50OFFSSL to redeem your 50% discount off the COMODO Positive SSL.
