CandyPress has released an important update to Version 6 which incorporates feature enhancements and fixes that address recent changes to API's that are utilized. Along with the update, we have enhanced the way CandyPress integrates with third party API's so that any issues can be addressed much faster by correcting some of those issues on our end, rather than within our customers’ scripts. This is also dependent on our customers being at the latest release.
Here are the highlights of this release:
Currency Rates - Customers that are using the currency conversion within CandyPress may experience failures pulling those rates from a third party feed, which has discontinued without notice. This can cause your store to run slowly, and rates not updating. This is considered an URGENT fix for customers utilizing that feature. Currency Rates will now be provided by a feed hosted at CandyPress rather than pointing users to a third party feed, therefore allowing us to address any issues without the need to release a further update. This will also allow us to expand on the currency conversion by providing feeds tailored to different countries in our next major version.
USPS International Shipping API - USPS has released an update to their API in order to provide international shipping rates. Customers that are using USPS online rates are unable to retrieve rates for international (outside the US) packages until this update is made.
Discount not working in certain PayPal Payment Methods - In some cases, depending on your use of PayPal, discount codes provided would not apply if using their gateway.
Along with the above highlights which are considered important to effected users, there are quite a few other bug fixes in which you can review in our release notes in the forums.
If you have made your purchase within the last 60 days, or have current upgrade protection, you may login to your account and re-download your product. The link above specifies the specific files that need to be compared/replaced since our last release to make your update easier.
We will be addressing our next Major release in the next couple of weeks as we work diligently over the holidays to continue enhancements and incorporate many new features to prepare for our first BETA of CandyPress 7.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year!
