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.

PayPal Standard Important Notice for January 2017
Starting January 18, 2017 PayPal IPN / Standard will not be able to accept transactions with a purchase amount which includes a "comma" symbol. (ie: a comma such as a "thousands separator" in an amount such as $1,234.56) There are a couple of ways to handle this issue. 1)  Change coding in a file so the comma symbol will not be an issue. Since PayPal Standard is "old" code, I highly recommend that you do option #2 instead of this option.  Here is a link to the Zen Cart forum that shows what to change based on the version of Zen Cart you have:   If...
