We've been hard at work on FoxyCart since our last release, and we're happy to announce our v1.1 release (full changelog) which brings a few new alternate payment methods to FoxyCart. We're calling them "alternate" because for the majority of the history of ecommerce, payments have traditionally been through credit and debit cards, processed through traditional payment gateways (like Authorize.net or Chase Paymentech, or any of the 50+ gateways we support). This has been a great option, but, as entrepreneurs ourselves, we're excited about new payment methods that offer flexibility to the customer and lower fees (or a variety of other perks) to the merchant.
The payment methods that are initially available in the v1.1 launch are:
Perhaps more importantly than these particular new payment methods, however, is that this payment methods are built on top of new functionality that will allow us to add more alternate payment methods. On the radar are Google Checkout, 2co, and other Bitcoin providers. As always, please vote for new payment methods on our request board. We can't make any promises about timeframes, but we do try to meet the greatest needs of our community.
If you've ever asked us, you know that we never give release dates for future functionality, but we would like to let you know that we're currently focusing on…
We're very (very) excited about the future, and we sincerely appreciate your support. As always, we take any and all feedback seriously. We know some of our community has been waiting a long time for new features, and we're working hard to make FoxyCart even more powerful, easier to implement, and higher-converting than ever before.
