We just thought we would give everyone in the community a quick update about our module store and a little bit more information about it. The work on the store is progressing along quite nicely and we are going to be able to launch the store soon. We have planned on launching the store in two phases, so we can Q&A check and also check for any kind of bugs. Phase one The first phase of the launch is going to be free modules only. This way we can get feedback from both the community and the module developers as to [...]

Crowdfunding Modules

2018-08-23T08:00:54-06:00June 28th, 2017|

There has been a lot of talk on our forum about crowdfunding of modules lately. We have decided that we would like to try the idea out. We look at it as a way for the community to help us further the mission of thirty bees in providing the best possible ecommerce software for free. While at the same time helping choose the direction of thirty bees. Over the last week we have been discussing how to handle this and which module to choose to try this system out. We have had lots of suggestions for different modules, so we [...]

New module: No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA

2018-08-23T08:03:18-06:00May 25th, 2017|

Although this one has been quite a while on the native module list in your back office, we hadn't announced it's availability, yet. So here goes! A lot of users have been complaining about spammers for a while. At the moment it is easy to grab the URL of a contact form an spam a merchant. This module allows you to add a captcha to the login form, the registration form, the password forgotten form, the contact form and the back office login. By adding a captcha it is no longer possible to automatically create accounts, spam the contact form [...]

New module: Cookie Consent

2018-08-23T08:03:25-06:00May 19th, 2017|

A feature that has been requested for a quite a while, but was never available with the Advanced EU Complaince is a module to comply with the EU cookie law. The module shows a notice to the visitor that cookies are used on the site. An e-commerce website cannot work properly without cookies. Cookies are used to keep user logged in, keep the cart and is particularly important for the checkout process. So this means that if your store is located in the EU and/or targets EU customers, you will have to show a cookie notice. In order to make it [...]

Stripe for thirty bees: announcing support for European payment methods + 3D Secure

2018-08-23T08:03:31-06:00May 15th, 2017|

At thirty bees we think that e-commerce integrations should not just be easily accessible, they should also be complete. Stripe has recently announced to support several European payment methods and they have added support for 3D Secure. Therefore we have worked hard to make these available on thirty bees, too. If you update the module to version 1.1.0 via your back office or with the download button below you will be able to activate these payment methods. After updating the module you will find that the following options have now been added: European Payment Methods Accept iDEAL Accept Bancontact Accept Giropay [...]

New module: custom payment methods

2018-08-23T08:03:45-06:00May 11th, 2017|

Ever had the need to add a custom payment method, without connecting to a payment gateway? Until now your options were pretty limited, but with the custom payment methods module we try to provide a way to add these payment methods as well. Until now you had to fall back onto paid alternatives or community contributions. We want to make these kinds of payment options available through a native module. This module allows you list an unlimited number of offline payment options. How does it work? Visit your back office, via your module list, search for custompayments. The custom payment methods [...]

New module: – Add live chat to your site

2018-08-23T08:04:29-06:00May 8th, 2017|

One of the best ways to get in touch with your website's visitors (even before they become customers) is to add a live chat to your site. It makes it much easier for visitors to contact you and you can also pro-actively ask the visitor what s/he is looking for. All in all this can be a great tool if you use it wisely. Many services already exist to add a live chat to your website. They often track the current page of a visitor, allow you to add a widget to your site, have offline messages, allow to e-mail the [...]

New module: ImageMagick

2018-08-23T08:04:55-06:00May 4th, 2017|

thirty bees processes images before they are visible on your product page. A lot of images. For every type you can find on the back office page "Settings > Images" there's a new image made. thirty bees does this to optimize image display on the page. This often means that you do no longer show original photos of your products on your pages, but photos that have been resized and processed by thirty bees. Since thirty bees is a PHP framework there are two engines that it could use to process images: GD and ImageMagick. The most used engine is GD. [...]

New module: MailChimp

2018-08-23T08:05:48-06:00May 1st, 2017|

If you are like most ecommerce shop owners you know the importance of email marketing. At thirty bees we do as well. For the last couple of months we have been working on a MailChimp module that will put your email marketing on steroids. As with all the modules that we develop it is free too, how awesome is that. What the module does In most ecommerce platforms the MailChimp module just sends subscriber information to MailChimp and calls it a day. Some send over the orders, so you can segment your subscribers by their orders too. Not ours. Ours [...]
