We are pleased to release a new version 1.5.0 of our extension Amazon Shopping Cart, and version 3.8.0 of our AmazonWS content plugin for Joomla.

amazon-logo2-medThe release of the Shopping Cart adds some important new features.

The main improvement to the cart is that we have added a new ability to track sales. Whenever a user clicks the button to check out through Amazon, the value of the sale is recorded, plus the user id if they are logged in. The sales can be viewed in the Joomla admin and downloaded as a CSV file. This can be very useful if you want to reward your users for buying through your site, or if you just want to keep a track of sales. You can read more about the sales tracking feature here.

To summarise the new features, these are:-

  • A bug fix that stops the ajax cart loading additional styles which can affect the page layout. Strictly this is a bug caused by some site templates, but we have found a way to stop it happening anyway
  • A new option to use a bootstrap modal instead of a widget kit dialog for the cart dialog - this is useful in case of javascript conflicts with the cart dialog
  • An option to require the user to log in or create an account on your site before checking out
  • The new sales tracking and administration. You can read more about the sales tracking feature here.

As with all our commercial extensions, when you buy the extension you get access to free updates for one year. Therefore existing customers can download the new version using their current download link. Then install as normal with the Joomla installer, there is no need to uninstall the existing version.

Version 4.6.10 is a maintenance release which supplies some new options for calculating shipping costs. The feed could already calculate shipping for stores using the standard Virtuemart shipping by weight, however for stores using 3rd party plugins the situation was more difficult. Now you can supply the shipping rates as part of the feed options, and allow it to calculate the shipping costs directly. The options allow for both weight-based shipping, and shipping based on the value of the order.

If you are submitting a feed to Google shopping then you can supply the shipping costs directly through the Google merchant centre, which can be a convenient alternative to supplying shipping costs in the feed. However many other shopping aggregator sites, such as Kelkoo and Bing, will accept feeds in the Google format, and so including the shipping costs will be more convenient if you are wanting to submit your feed to these sites too. This is why we developed the new options.
