Zen Cart 1.5.6B Released
Last week the developers of Zen Cart released a new version 1.5.6B. I have been watching all the bug reports and have not felt comfortable upgrading people to 1.5.6 until this version came out, which would include all the reported bug fixes and security fixes found in 1.5.6 and 1.5.6a. Check our upgrades section if you are interested in getting the latest, most secure version of Zen Cart to run your store with.

Zen Cart 1.5.6A Released
I hesitated to inform everyone that 1.5.6 was out in December of 2018, because several bugs were found in it after its release.  All bug fixes are not done in 1.5.6a, so it should be ready to rock and roll! If you are unsure of the mods that might be installed, you will probably want to fill out our Request For Quote Form PRIOR to placing your order, so we can give you a list of what you have installed so you can determine if you still want/need these zen cart modifications or whether they have been updated to work with the latest version you are upgrading to.

MasterCart BIN 2 - You may need a patch!
Mastercard has already started rolling out their new cards beginning with the number 2.  If your Zen Cart online store is operating at a version LOWER than 1.5.5b, then you need to either have a patch installed so these new numbers will be accepted, or better yet... upgrade to the latest version of Zen Cart . Obviously upgrading would be the most "responsible" thing to do for security of your data and your customers data.
