SoftSlate Commerce 3.3.3 Released

SoftSlate is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of SoftSlate Commerce, version 3.3.3. This release includes a number of bug fixes and some new features. For a complete list of changes between 3.3.2 and 3.3.3 visit the Change Log.

Purchase Order Payment Option

Administrators may now configure their store to accept Purchase Orders as a method of payment. The Purchase Order option only appears to customers who have been flagged by the Administrator as being able to pay by purchase order. If the customer is allowed, he does not need to enter any other payment information other than a purchase order number.

Improved Password Reset Feature for Customers

New in version 3.3.3 is a an advanced password reset feature. The new feature emails customers a token that may be used for them to reset their lost password, as opposed to resetting the password for them directly.

FedEx Address Validation

Addresses entered by customers may now be validated using the FedEx address validation service (with a production FedEx API account), as an alternative to the existing integration with AvaTax address validation. Customer addresses entered during checkout will be validated with FedEx and if invalid, customers will be asked to double-check their address.

Upgrades for Hibernate, Lucene and JSTL

We've upgraded Hibernate to version 4.3.5, Lucene to 3.6.2, and JSTL to 1.2.1.

Google Analytics.js, USPS Rate v4 Integrations
