Barclaycard ePDQ update

We're pleased to announce that we've now upgraded the Barclaycard ePDQ plugin to v1.4

The latest update sets the encoding to use UTF-8 to generate the shasign field. This will provide support to sites that use multi-languages or languages outside the latin-1 character set

The main feature of this latest release is the addition of extra fields to the configuration which will give you extra control over the look and feel of your payment page, and support for either static or dynamic template use with Barclaycard ePDQ

Barclaycard ePDQ Plugin Configuration

Our new plugin store!

Welcome to our new plugin store where we've finally made all our nopCommerce extensions available, some commercially and some for free.

We've been developing on nopCommerce now for over 3 years since our first nopCommerce store on version 1.7 and it's come a long way. In the early days, we mainly coded bespoke customisations for clients as well as providing hosting, but since the platform has moved over to the MVC archetecture, developing customisations as re-usable plugins has become so much easier, as has plugin installation.

As a developer, personally, although I've had 10 years experience in eCommerce development, over 3 of which with nopCommerce, I'm new to MVC so learning the new nopCommerce archetecture has been a steep learning experience. I've created this blog to generally talk about the plugins we've developed and some of the problems we've encountered along the way and how we solved them, hopefully this may help any other plugin developers avoid the same pitfalls.

Let me know any comments or questions
