Upgrades and Updates

During January 2020, we'll be undertaking a series of software upgrades to bring our systems forward to the latest software versions. These upgrades will have very little visible impact on your stores, the main purpose of the upgrades is to ensure all the security services are up to date.

Shippit - Shipping Integration

eCorner has completed the new Shippit ( delivery method integration. The guide below contains a list of supported shipping services or providers.

Shippit is now installed on our systems. You will need a Shippit account to use the Shippit system. Shippit allows you to print labels and create tracking for your shipments. Get more information about Shippit from their website.

Facebook Shop

If you have a Facebook business Page, you can add a shop. You can use this section to list products you're selling and connect with more customers on Facebook. The existing integration between the online shop and Facebook has been depreciated as Facebook changed the rules and integration methods. The new method uses Facebook's own built in Shop capability. If you use Google Shopping you can utilise the same data feed for your Facebook Shop.
Australia Post Account Access

New Australia Post integration for shipping calculations is now being tested and will be live soon. eCorner has rebuilt the Australia Post integration using the latest Australia Post shipping and tracking APIs. There are a range of new features included in the latest update to our support for Australia Post. Download the New Australia Post Guide here.

Google Merchant Center and Google Shopping

As some of you might know, Google Shopping and Google Ads are part of the Google Search Engine Marketing (SEM) services. Google Shopping allows you to show your products in Google search results. Both of these are paid services that work on a cost per click or conversion basis. But there are many good reasons to upload your products to Google.

Google Merchant Center is a portal that allows you to setup an automated upload of your products to Google. It is the backbone of Google Shopping. But it will also review your product content and can provide very good insight to how your products will sell online.

eCorner provide a free and simple set of Product Portals integrations, including Google Shopping, that help you get your products to online search marketing services.

What's Coming This Year

eCorner continues to improve and grow our products and services. We will be doing further upgrades to the core capabilities of our eCommerce solution throughout 2020.
Merry Christmas &
Happy New Year

Give International Visitors a Good User Experience

If you intend to sell internationally then you will also need to ensure that you are able to calculate the correct shipping for international deliveries. Doing that with ePages is a simple process but does take a few steps to be completed successfully. Once setup then your visitors that have an international address will only see the shipping methods that relate to international deliveries. The shipping estimator in the product page will also allow the correct selection for international customers.
