E-commerce spotlight: Sytist and Authorize.Net

Software platform for professional photographers

If you are a professional photographer you are likely well aware of how complex the process can be from shoot to finished product. While to many it may seem you just shoot a camera and hand out the shots, we know it’s much more than that. First, there is the type of event, what you are trying to capture, the differences in lens usage and lighting based on what you want the end product to be. Then you have to edit and polish all the photos in an editor and correct and minor flaws. You may then have to get approval from your client, with green screen sessions you may provide a plethora of extra options for them to choose. Lastly, you need to get paid, without chasing checks, without accepting peer to peer payments that make you look “small time”. This only scratches the surface. If you are looking for an online, e-commerce photographer focused solution you might want to check out a software suite called “Sytist”. You can read more about them here.

Clear info on Authorize.Net and TLS 1.0 & 1.1

E-commerce security encryption changes: PCI mandate to retire TLS 1.0 and 1.1

As a service to all our customers, past, present, and future, we like to make sure you are ready for some important changes in the industry. TLS 1.0, this is an issue that is likely to affect many e-commerce businesses if they don’t take care of it before it becomes an issue. So what’s the problem? Internet encryption. If you have been on the web and have done any work on your site you are probably familiar with SSL (Secure Socket Layer). If you are in the e-commerce industry, you should remember that basic SSL became in many ways obsolete after a fundamental flaw was discovered in its core programming. This flaw made the previously powerful internet security tool all but useless for e-commerce depending on the application as it was no longer a secure method of encryption. Basic SSL support was discontinued after June 30th of 2016, forcing every reputable card processor and payment gateway to adopt TLS 1.0 or 1.1.

Templatic for WordPress: High-risk friendly software spotlight

Customizable high-risk compatible WordPress themes that stand out

One of the best parts about the e-commerce industry is the limitless customization options, and ability to change on a dime each website owner has. High-risk merchants must navigate processor requirements, make a/b test result reactions, and respond to regulatory changes at a moment’s notice  Additionally, with the huge amount of competition in common high-risk industries like vape and e-juice, or online FFL sales, no one wants a bland website that leaves visitors unimpressed, and sends them off to find the same products from a site that makes them feel like they are getting something more of value. If you haven’t put much time or effort into making your website stand out, the time is always now. You may want to check out Templatic for WordPress. We have no association, or agreements with them, but have heard a thing or two, and Templatic is essentially a premium theme distributor with many themes designed specifically for e-commerce. They are a smaller outfit, so you can have a sleek and eye catching design for your high-risk website that does not “look like everyone else” and have it without any of the ordinary hassle of programming and designing a theme yourself.
