    Default IKV Now OPEN!

    Definitely not the thread you want to read but I have to give you guys a head's up. Since I cannot get the newsletters functioning ECF will have to do for the moment.

    So where to begin...As you know First Data is discontinuing their services to IKV and we are falling back on our reserve merchant processing account.
    Volusion has been charging us with overages from using too much bandwidth, averaging 35-50GB a month so we have been facing a little more than $200.00 on a monthly
    basis. This is eating up too much funds and we must cut them out. Corecommerce (our first shopping cart) has granted us $50.00/monthly for unlimited bandwidth.

    So I placed a job on Freelancers for a website transfer. A designer has contacted me in regards to Woo Commerce. (deja vu ie Opencart) Upon research Woo Commerce seems promising so we left Godaddy to jump on a better founded hosting company, Bluehost and are working with the dev on the new platform. This will allow us to keep reward points and unlock many new features. The going isn't going as quickly as I had hoped and we have to stop accepting online credit card transactions on the 1st of August.

    I'll keep this thread up to date on any new happenings. My first advice is, if you guys need anything for atleast a week or possibly 2, please make your purchases from now to the night of the 31st.

    Tonight we will be meeting up with the dev for more modifications on the site. Things haven't been going so well, but the site is coming along nicely.

    You got it fellas!
    I want to show you the progress, but I'm not sure how..Oh wait, hang on


    I'm not too amped about the change but it's still a work in progress. we may revisit the current site by the way it's looking but I'm being pessimistic about it

    I like it. Looks clean and easy to navigate from the pic. Except I thought Fuzion was spelled Fusion? LOL

    I agree that I like the looks of it.

    But it's sad to hear that you'll be closing online sales - and that has to hurt your bottom line too. This payment processing hassle is so ridiculous that it's almost criminal. Wells Fargo advised, thumbs up and a bright future for ecig industry ... so?

    Sorry to hear you have to go through all this Iken. I hope your able to get things back and running soon. Sometimes I just want to scream with all the BS these CC company's put smaller business's through. And the kicker is telling the customer how they can spend there money! In the mean time liking the pics of the new site so far.

    I'm so sorry Issac! Man I wish you could catch a break sometime! Good luck with this and don't hesitate to ask if there's something I can do to help somehow!
