    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.

    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:laugh:

    I like the look of it.......from what I see there, anyway. I'm positive it's gonna be great!! (Might even get Stud to make you some flashy images. :wink: :wink: )

    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!

    You guys are the absolute greatest!
    MUCH much love to all!
    We're getting there. Last night we were on skype from 10-5am trying to hammer away at this and it seems this night is getting harder. Unfortunately what you guys can see in the screenshot, is crystal clear. Though everything is pretty fuzzy and the code keeps breaking on the categories. Where as if you have your window snapped to the side (windows 7 and up feature) the product images break apart leaving horrible gaps in between.



    Oh Sawman, I have the tanks going out to you tomorrow. I'm sorry man and THANK YOU

    Question regarding First Data. Did they terminate your agreement because of the products you sell? Or was it something else?

    Excellent! School starts in two weeks so I should have plenty of time to get on them while the heathen is in school! I'll try to get a couple done and shipped back to you to make sure you like the way the turn out.

    To what we sell. As it turns it out, they cannot support online sales. However face-to-face is fine.
    :laugh: That just made me bust up! Your too cool Sawman.Thank you my friend. There are quite a few so any delays is perfectly fine. Work at your own pace buddy.
    Love the sig! Dynasty is hilarious

    Glad to help out Issac! Hopefully I can make you something out of that loss, although one or two of them might come up missing:p

    Yes, Duck Dynasty is the bomb! Took my wife a couple of episodes before she got it, but last night was our 20th anniversary, we sat on the couch eating chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy and watching Duck Dynasty! It just don't get much better than that!

    What I missed was being able to see your twitter feed on the home page. Maybe it was just my computer, but for the last week or so it went MIA.

    Happy Anniversary man! LOL what a night! We both keep forgetting our anniversary :( every year really. It's nice not getting into trouble because it's an even battlefield :laugh: na, we have a great relationship.

    Aww! Thanks Franni!!! They are unavoidable, that's for sure. It's all about the experience gained is all. I am really sorry for being closed at the moment.
