Volume discount pricing

Posted by | Feature updates | No Comments

Yet another feature update.

Volume discount pricing

We’ve added the ability to add volume discount pricing to any of your products. It’s as simple as editing a product and entering a discounted price for a particular quantity. Love it!

Till next time!

 

Our new site and what’s going on

Posted by | General | No Comments

Hello again,

Sorry for the lack of updates, life has a habit of getting busy ;) Not that we’re complaining!

Just to keep you updated, there are a few things in the works.

The new lightcommerce web site

That there is a screen shot of our new home page! It’s been a long time coming and I’ve been working on the site content with whatever spare time I get. We think it looks awesome and we can’t wait to unleash it on you. It will have full details on our service, our history and our platform. We’re hoping it will help answer any questions anyone has on what our goals are and how you can benefit from working with us.

I’m looking to get this site live this coming week.

Tumbling over to WordPress

Another item on my list is to migrate this blog to WordPress. This was actually a request from Paul (lightcommerce’s social media guy) who is itching to start contributing on the blog and other social profiles. We’re migrating to WordPress over Tumblr for better support for multiple authors, better theming and a few other things. In theory it shouldn’t be a complicated process as we currently have less than 20 tumblr posts but the URL of the blog WILL change from blog.lightcommerce.co.uk to lightcommerce.co.uk/blog.

I may even get that done over this weekend ;)

Two awesome new lumini features

I’m going to be implementing the following two new features for our e-commerce platform lumini;

  • Barclays ePDQ payment method
    Very similar to WorldPay with a hosted payment page on the Barclay’s servers.
  • Bulk discounts for product prices
    So you can define, for example, a base price of £1.00, £0.90 if buying 10 or more, £0.75 if buying 50 or more.

Both of these new features originate from client requests. Are you beginning to notice a pattern with our development? :)

Stay safe! Until next time…

PayPal and other payment method changes

Posted by | General | No Comments

Hello again!

We’re on a feature release roll recently! The following changes have just been release for our platform;

PayPal integration

I knew it was only a matter of time before I’d integrate PayPal into the platform. I’ve just added an integration for PayPal Website Payments Standard using PayPal’s Instant Payment Notification system to update orders within lumini when they’re completed.

A new way to configure payment methods

So far to configure payment methods you had to set them up using our normal settings page. Which if I’m honest isn’t very pretty or user friendly. It’s another change on the unending list of improvements we have in store! I have now rewritten how payment methods are configured and there is now a new payment method area where method has it’s own settings page.

From here you can also set whether the method is live (or test), enabled and per a recent client request, which of your sites (US/UK etc) it appears on. The client wanted to use PayPal for their US site and WorldPay for their UK site. Problem solved!

Until next time! (I’m sure it won’t be long)

WorldPay, new product features

Posted by | General | No Comments

The following new features and changes have been added to lumini;

  • Implemented WorldPay payment gateway
  • Implemented product comparison

    Users browsing a site can now add as many products as they wish to a product comparison feature, which will display all selected products next to each other listing attributes and additional fields.
     
  • Implement product wish lists

    Users browsing the site can create a wish list of desired products, and then name that wish list. For example, “Christmas  wish list”. To save a wish list with a name a user must register with an account. Users can create multiple wish lists and manage them from their account area.
     
  • A number of speed optimisations

After some internal re-prioritizing, new feature development for lumini is going to take a front seat. Watch this space for more exciting features. We can’t wait to show you what we have planned!
