Email Sending Limits

We have implemented email sending limits to help prevent our mail servers from being blacklisted from an occasional customer who get hacked, and who's computers start sending spam. 

If you have any reason to send more than 100 emails a day (other than via our bulk emailer), then you will need to contact us so that we can increase your email sending permissions. Otherwise our servers will simply block you from sending too much email per day.

5 Steps to Writing Killer Website Content Which Ranks High

Ever heard the phrase organic traffic? It’s the visitors to your website which come from search engines. They come to your website because you have website content which ranks high in search results. It is the goal of almost every business website to get a lot of traffic, which is why there is always a lot of chat about SEO or search engine optimisation. The question of the moment would be then, how do I write website content which ranks high in search engines?

Paypal - Unpaid transaction warning. 

Anyone using Paypal for checkout payments might need to manually reconcile any unpaid orders from the 9th July to the 14th July. Annoyingly, Paypal changed their API slightly (in random situations) and they didn't tell anyone... We have solved the issue for either use case, but transactions in the days preceding may show unpaid in our system, even though paid in Paypal. Paypal gives us no option to verify historical transactions, so you will need to manually reconcile any unpaid transactions on our system

System Updates

Product Search During Linking

You can now search for a product by name or code when linking it. 

Laybuy Payment Option

We've added a new payment option for Laybuy, that will accept a 6 step payment plan from customers, while paying the business in full (less transaction fees). It has been quite popular. We have also added a new feature to hide certain payment options depending on the size of the transaction, as it doesn't make sense to offer Laybuy on transactions under $30 for example. 

New Booking and Hire System

Our new developer Marat has been busy working on one of our biggest updates in a while. 

  • Customers can book a meeting or appointment from an availability calendar. 
  • Customers can book and pay for services, including deposits. 
  • Customers can view their bookings and modify dates or times, within set parameters. 
  • Customers can hire items, where availability is managed by our system, pay for deposits, etc. 

Already you can add these products to your catalogue. 

Customers can checkout having confirmed a booking time, date, or pickup time. 

Beta Testers Wanted

We are still working on the usability aspects of those final steps in the checkout, but if you want to help us make it just how you want it to be, then we would love it if would help us test the interface and provide feedback. Be prepared for bugs. This is not ready for production yet, but it is a great chance to ensure you get the booking system you really want. Just email support with any feedback, attention to Marat.

Clearing your Browser Cache and Publishing

Caching speeds up your computer, but it also causes confusion when viewing changes to your website.  Every web master needs to become familiar with this concept. Almost a third of all our support tickets relate to mis understandings about caching. We can't change the nature of the internet, we only educate.

  • Pressing publish button is neccesary even before you go live. Pressing the publish button allows you to navigate your trial website. When you navigate your trial website, you are actually navigating the published pages in many cases. Only the first page to preview in preview mode usually shows your recent changes. 
  • Your web browser is not aware that you are currently editing your website. The web browser does not undersstand any connection between our website builder CMS, and your website with a completely different URL. You typically need to press REFRESH on your browser to see recent updates. Or you may even need to clear your browser cache.

Do you need an 0800 number for your business? We think 2talk provide a really awesome service, and it's who we use. For example, you have an 0800 number call your landline first, then your mobile, then your 2IC's mobile to ensure that somone will take the call. Their rates are cheap, and all the value added services can be managed via a web page control panel, so you don't need to wait on hold for any call centers. You can manage your lines fully yourself.

Receive a 25% discount off your web hosting, by referring a friend 

Did you know that if you refer a friend to use our awesome website builder service, you get a 25% discount off your hosting? If you refer 4 friends, then you will essentially get your web hosting for free! Not only that, but your friends will also get their 2nd month web hosting absolutely free. That's a nice little encouragement for them to check our service out and gives us the opportunity to setup your discount. Both discounts apply for your  2nd and subsequent websites also. It doesn't matter if it is yours, a friend, family or a stranger. Discounts begin once both websites are live. Please make sure you or your friend communicates the referral at the earliest opportunity.
