New FREE WooCommerce Extension for Credit Cards

One of the many services we provide at Hilo Web Design is setting up and helping maintain an Online Shopping Cart – for that we use WooCommerce. WooCommerce uses extensions (plug-ins) to add features such as payment gateways (accepting VISA, Mastercard, etc.), adding USPS shipping information, and product add-ons.

We have told you in the past about the difference between using an SSL Certification versus using a payment method like PayPal and the costs and issues assoicated with both. A NEW exetnsion has arrived that is used with those sites wtih and SSL Certification and is FREE! STRIPE: Accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards directly on your store with the Stripe payment gateway for WooCommerce. The only thing that this system requires is a valid SSL certificate. This ensures your customer credit card details are safe! This plugin also uses Stripe JS to tokenize credit card numbers to make payments keeping card data secure. Stripe now works with refunds in WooCommerce 2.2+.

Feed Your Dog or Your Employees with Twitter

As a company that does social media marketing for several businesses we are not new to Twitter. However, some of the  things you can actually do with Twitter has thrown us for a loop! For instance, did you know you can use your Twitter account to feed your dog while away at work or out and about? You can also send someone a $5 Starbucks gift card using Twitter, which we think is why Matthew is so adamant about using the platform!
