Dev4Press websites have been updated with big codebase changes that bring some very important features and improvements to the purchase process, rewards included with some purchase and more.
Payment flow updates
Starting today, the payments flow is updated, and on the side of the payment processor, replaced with new fully responsive experience that brings not only responsive layout for great mobile experience, but also compliance with few upcoming new laws related to EU initiatives to bring better online eCommerce experience and more choices when it comes to making payments online.
On September 14 2019, two important laws and directives will come in effect: Revised Payment Service Directive (PSD2) and EU Directive 2015/2366. The goal with these changes is to improve user authentication and user protection when using payment storefronts (like the one we use on Dev4Press, powered by DigitalRiver MyCommerce ShareIt). Once these directives go into effect, banks can require stronger authentication of users, and improve current secure payment systems in place between banks and payment processors (and other payment entities). Also, offering mobile-friendly solutions for payments is one of the requirements (under the name 3D Secure 2.0).
What does all this mean for Dev4Press website? Dev4Press website is already mobile ready, and now the payment processing is updated with mobile-friendly storefront, and it is up to date with all the upcoming payment requirements from EU (and other countries that support the same set of laws), and we are looking forward to more improvements that will new directives open to payment processing on the internet.
The new storefront now behaves as the cart, so when you have a button to go back to the continue shopping and Buy Now buttons on Dev4Press website will add products to the cart, so you can easily buy licenses for different plugins all at once.
Discount coupons rewards
Starting today, we are adding special promotional discount coupons for some purchases. If you buy a license for bbPress Club Membership, GD Knowledge Base Pro, GD bbPress Toolbox Pro, GD Topic Prefix Pro, GD Topic Polls Pro, GD Power Search Pro or GD Quantum Theme Pro, you will get two discount coupons for each new license. These coupons can be used to purchase a license for GD Mail Queue Pro and/or GD Crumbs Navigator Pro licenses. bbPress Club license will give you a 30% discount, and the eligible plugins will give you a 20% discount.
The reason to give coupons for these two plugins is their close relation to bbPress and Knowledge Base. GD Crumbs Navigator Pro can vastly improve both forums and knowledge base with powerful breadcrumbs features, and GD Mail Queue Pro can improve email handling for just about anything in WordPress, especially bbPress.
And, these promo coupons have been also added for all the matching licenses that were active on July 1, 2019. You can find these promo coupons in your Dev4Press Dashboard under the Bonus page. Each coupon can be used for a single new purchase and these coupons don’t expire.
More changes coming soon
For the next 3 months, the focus on Dev4Press will be on updating all the plugins and addons information and knowledge base. The regular development will be put on hold for most of the time, but there are few major updates scheduled during this period, with new GD Mail Queue Free and Pro coming later this month, GD Content Tools Pro also later this month, with few new releases coming in September.
