12-26-16 PHP Mailer Security Fix
PHPMailer admins have been notified of a security flaw in their software and have released a new version which fixes this flaw. It is important that anyone who operates a Zen Cart store have this security fix installed as soon as possible in order to avoid malicious emails being generated. If you would like us to install this security fix for you, it can be ordered here. NOTE:  If you have a Zen Cart using 1.3.9 or older, we will not install this fix.  Instead, please place an order to have your Zen Cart store upgraded because your whole STORE is insecure.

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...

MailChimp Newsletter Sidebox for Zen Cart
A new version of the MailChimp Newsletter sidebox came out in late October 2016 because MailChimp is depreciating the method that was written into this module.  This updated module is written to support 3.0 of MailChimp's API. If you have the MailChimp sidebox, you will need to download the latest version from the Zen Cart Plugin area, or you can have us install the update for you.

Summer Special and Authorize.net change
Authorize.net and Akamai We have received word that Authorize.net is switching to using Akamai services to interface with their current system in order to avoid future downtime when they are performing maintenance actions and updates. Because of the seamless way they're implementing the changes, you could easily make NO changes to your Zen Cart files and things will work just fine.  There may be a delay and some downtime when they do updates, but that should be minimal and probably not any different from what your site already experiences. To see if you are using Authorize.net, in...

USPS 5/31/15 Update
USPS Shipping Module for Zen Cart USPS has released a new update for those of you who use USPS shipping on your website.  (to check if you use USPS, in your admin mouse over Modules, click on Shipping and see if there is a green button to the right of USPS). While I am sure the following list is in no way comprehensive, below are some of the changes I have dug around to find: This update includes rate increases and changes to Extra Services (EG:  certified mail, insurance, etc.) First class domestic package rate has increased. Priority Mail® International and Priority Mail...

PayPal Phone Calls and Emails on POODLE SSLv3
PayPal has been calling and emailing all of it's customers regarding the 12/3/14 deadline for making sure their retail websites have had the POODLE SSLv3 fix applied. Unfortunately, some of the PayPal CSR's are saying something to the effect that "we scanned your site on the 21st and it is not compliant". This is simply NOT TRUE. After speaking with two people from PayPal today, both indicated to me that they do not have the capability of "scanning" your website. They both indicated that they were "on a campaign" to call all customers to make them aware...
