After a ridiculously long and arduous week. I figured while we were down, this time would provide an ample opportunity to focus on the new existing database over at Volusion. This base will give us accurate billing and shipping addresses, customer rewards, customer wish lists, product email notifications, ease of use including coupons, free shipping deals along with coupon codes, short descriptions so that you can actually see the recommendations per product on category pages. The list and possibilities seriously goes on and on. So I've biding my time with the store and transferred everything over so when you go to ikenvape.com the maintenance message is really on the Volusion database.We did finally receive the green light over the weekend and I'm now configuring the merchant processor with the database. Running a few transactions to make certain that everything is linked properly. It's funny, when you go to a site, you don't really realize how much work your truly looking at. At this point I just need to ensure the gateway, add a few new products and re-count the inventory and fix the email inbox (which has been offline for more than a week) and we're golden, however...
This is where the burden comes in at guys and gals. As some of you know with all your love and support I finally managed to purchase a house for our little family. It has taken a good amount of work, painting, flooring, back deck,heat pump and whole lotta ETC! but it's nearly finished. All is left, is a survey, fence and of course doggy door In exactly one week, the movers are coming to haul all of our stuff on over to the new place. The biggest difficulty at the moment is that we haven't packed Anything! I have been so immersed into getting IKV up and running at the best it possibly can that I have nearly forgotten the world around me. I can't be apologetic enough as in a day or so the wait will be my fault. I know you guys are dying out there without us and I really wish it wasn't so. The guilt and depression of knowing this is already eating away at me and I wish there was something I can do with fulfilling your needs but I'm so strapped for time. I'm afraid that I can't just yet I have been trying to keep vendors stocked so you guys can pick up some things while we keep a good inventory for those who don't/didn't so when we're back online we'll still have a full supply. I really hope you guys can forgive me.
