ECT Account

We have just set up a new feature on our store, the ECT Account. This is currently required for the mobile device notifications via the iPhone app and for the currency conversion rates feature. Registration is very simple, you can find the account page here and we have provided a corresponding help file.

Please do set up an ECT Account as soon as possible if you use the currency converter (or wish to use the new Ecommerce Templates App) as the testuser / testpw login will be expiring soon. It is not important which version of the store you are using to get an account for the currency conversions but 7.0.5 is required for the mobile notifications.

Recent Features

We have added so many new features over the last few months that we thought it would be a good idea to provide a recap along with some demo examples so you can see them in all their glory. These are just a few of the cool new things you can use on your own store.

  • Home page category display
  • Related items in the soft cart
  • CSS classes for the product options
  • Product image on the thanks page and invoice
  • Verify the email address on checkout
  • Froala HTML Editor
