USPS Rate Change effective 1/4/2010

If your store uses USPS for a shipping method, you will need an update to your USPS file in order for your customers to be charged the correct rate. If you wish to install this update yourself, please go to the zen cart forum and you will see instructions for how to get the new rates to work as well as the file to download and overwrite on your server. If you need assistance with this, I have set this installation service up on my website (temporarily). By the end of the month, I will assume that everyone has updated...

News Release from Zen Cart Developers
News from the zen cart developers regarding extra folders just released today as follows: In a standard Zen Cart install, there are a few additional folders provided which DO NOT need to be uploaded to your live webserver. In fact, leaving those folders on your server can pose some security risks if not used as intended.

Paypal IPN Problems 10/14/2009
10-14-09 - Paypal is having problems with IPN - which will affect anyone who has a zen cart using paypal as a payment method. You can see the information here: http://www.pdncommunity.com/t5/Live-Site-Status/Live-Site-945-2-Update-Instant-Payment-Notifications-IPN-is/ba-p/158035 One suggestion was to turn debug mode ON to see if you will get the order information through a debug email. To do this, go into your zen cart admin area, mouse over Modules >Payment. Click on the paypal link and click to edit it - the debug email option is at the bottom of the page on the right.
