We have updated Files app:

  • improved data synchronization with external resources
  • added new synchronization option for Google Drive.

To enable access to Google Drive documents from within Files, we have released a new free plugin. Now users of your Webasyst account will be able to work with any files stored in your Google Drive. Permissions to access these files are granted via regular access rights settings available for Files app.

Google docs, sheets, slides, and drawings created within Google Drive can be easily viewed or edited directly in Google Drive via a link available in Files app.

We have released a major Shop-Script update to ver. 7.1.0.

With this update, we have added many useful improvements including those which you requested.

  • Couriers: Limited access for couriers to the mobile app allowing them to process their assigned orders. The list of available couriers is editable in the main settings screen of Shop-Script backend. Assignment of an order to a courier occurs on an order-viewing page when executing the “Sent” action. Read more about setting up couriers in the Help Center.
  • Web push notifications on new orders in browser. For web push notifications to work, you need an SSL certificate for the domain name which you use to log into your Shop-Script backend. Read more about setting up web push notifications in the Help Center.
  • Option to sort orders by creation date, update date, and payment date.
  • Option to change the order of order action buttons (in section Settings > Order states).
  • New rounding settings for total discount amount and shipping cost (in section Settings > Currencies).
  • Displaying of ordered products in sales reports by selected customer segments.
  • Option to sort products by individual stocks in backend section Products > Stock.
  • Option to hide a product feature from storefronts to make it visible in the backend only.
  • Improvements in product-editing and plugin settings screens.
  • Bug fixes in sending email notifications and in returning customers to correct storefronts after payment.
  • Other minor improvements.

In addition to the main Shop-Script app, also mobile apps for iOS and Android devices have been updated, too (added limited authorization mode for couriers), as well as Site app (new settings added to parent design theme “Default 3.0” and default font family changed to Fira Sans). Also a new plugin “Invoice” has been released, for generating editable invoice print forms.

This update is available both via Installer and on GitHub.

An update for Files app has been released: version 1.1.0.

In this version, we have added support for data synchronization with remote file storages and other resources. The synchronization occurs by means of plugins. To help you start using this useful feature right away, we have also published two free plugins: "Dropbox" and "WebDAV server".

"Dropbox" plugin

Now not only you can work with files stored in your Dropbox account. Any users who have access to your Webasyst backend can now access those files, too. Choose which is more suitable for you: allow Files app to access all files in your Dropbox or only a single folder.

With this plugin set up, documents of your Dropbox account will become available in Files app just as another files folder. Work with those files in Files app as usual, any changes you make will be automatically synchronized with your Dropbox account.

"WebDAV server" plugin

With this plugin, synchronization works the other way: files stored in your Files app can be made accessible from outside. You do not even have to log into your Webasyst account to upload, replace, delete, or rename documents stored in Files.

Simply map a network drive, connected to Files app, on your computer; e.g., using File Explorer in Windows or Finder in Mac OS X, and work with its contents as you usually do with locally stored files. Any changes you make will be automatically applied to files stored in Files app, you will see them whenever you log back into Webasyst. This kind of data exchange is implemented with the use of WebDAV technology.

Good news! We have finalized the connection of Webasyst Cloud to anti-DDOS filters provided by DDOS-GUARD company.

This system change may require additional setup for your domains linked to Webasyst Cloud. Note that for all domain names registered via Webasyst, as well as those using DNS server ns.you-online-dns.net, all necessary setup has been completed by Cloud staff. If all your linked domains use this DNS server, then you do not need to do anything extra, your websites will continue working as usual.

How to find out whether additional setup is required for your domain

Enter your domain name linked to Webasyst Cloud on the WHOIS lookup page and run the search.

View the names of DNS servers ("Name Servers") on the results page:

If you have different DNS (name) servers than those shown in the picture above, then change your domain settings as described below.

What must be changed

For domain names linked to Webasyst Cloud and using their own DNS servers, log into your account on the registrar's website and specify the following DNS server values:

  • ns.you-online-dns.net
  • ns1.you-online-dns.net

This change must be accomplished until April 15, otherwise your domain names will stop responding and your websites will become unavailable. Should this change be made until the specified date, no interruption in your websites operation will take place.

We are preparing major changes to our partnership programs. The new changes will become effective on February 1, 2016 and will open new earning and business development opportunities for everyone working with Webasyst and Shop-Script.

50% for partners

Effective February 1, partner reward (discount) will grow from 20—40%, which used to depend on the amount of sold software licenses, to 50% regardless of how many licenses a partner has sold. Partner discount will be equal to 50% even for the very first sold license!

To become a partner, you will have to accept the terms and conditions of the partnership agreement and complete a questionnaire. Upon approval by Webasyst, a partner will be able to place orders with 50% discount. First license discount will be applied only for products developed by Webasyst. Further licenses of the same product will be available to partners with 50% discount regardless of the product developer.

Crediting of partner account balance, with a minimum withdrawal amount threshold, which is applicable today, will be replaced with a discount applied immediately during checkout. As usual, a mandatory requirement for partners will remain the condition to keep their sales prices equal to those set by product developers. So partners will receive their reward immediately upon sale to end user rather than accumulate it on the partner account balance.

At the same time, on February, 2016 we are closing the referral program, which has been allowing partners to attract new customers via promo links of the form ?promo_id= to Webasyst and Shop-Script websites. Unfortunately, the way this partner program was implemented, it proved inefficient. We will keep looking for other options of its development though. A new version of the referral program is planned to be announced in the spring this year.

50% off extra licenses

Effective February 1, discounts for additional licenses of any Webasyst products will grow to 50% (from current 10%–25%).

The "50% off extra licenses" rule will be applied to all products published in Webasyst store including those created by third-party developers.

Since the discount for additional licenses will become much larger, it will not be added to the temporary discounts of Webasyst special offers. Therefore, ordering an additional license will be а profitable purchase at any time, without having to wait for a large sale.

Happy New Year 2016!

Thanks to all who were following the development of Webasyst in 2015! This year has been mega-productive for us!

Happy New Year, dear friends!

For Webasyst, 2015 has been one of the most productive years in the company's entire history. We have released lots of new products and keep growing even faster:

Plans for 2016

Even more has been planned for 2016 :)

With the release of Tasks and Files apps, we have actually completed the transition of the key collaboration functionality from the old Webasyst platform, removed from sales in 2013, to the new framework and have thus turned the new Webasyst into a convenient environment for organizing corporate intranet and online collaboration. For the upcoming year, we are planning to introduce important collaboration and CRM-focused features to make Webasyst even more effective for online company management, and for communicating with your teammates and clients.

Shop-Script 6 also awaits major updates! We keep tracking your ideas and suggestions and are going to implement many of them in the next year, including some interesting features for those who want to manage an online store while being on the go. Recent update to Shop-Script 6.3.0 gives third-party developers the opportunity to create quite sophisticated plugins, so you can expect really many great online store addons from our developers community in 2016, too.

Stay up to date with our news to find out what else we will present to you in the upcoming year!

Happy New Year 2016!

Specially for the New Year occasion, we have updated our collection of 2015's best products published in Webasyst Store — do take a look.

Best of 2015

Look at the collection of best apps, plugins, and design themes published in Webasyst Store in 2015.

Today we have introduced several new pricing options, which will allow Cloud users to work with Shop-Script 6 and other Webasyst apps, including new Files and Tasks, as well as Webasyst CRM apps, on most profitable terms, i.e. without app hosting fee or license purchase requirement.

Get 20% of orders paid in Webasyst Store to your bonus account

Effective today, any purchase made in Webasyst Store; e.g., an order of a design theme, plugin, app, or widget, will automatically return 20% of the order price to a special bonus account, from which you can pay for Webasyst Cloud hosting.

For example, if you have ordered a design theme and a several plugins in Webasyst Store for an amount of $200, then $40 will be credited to your bonus account. For example, on the "Pro" plan, you will be able to extend your Webasyst Cloud account for a couple of months absolutely for free.

New plan "Pro + CRM"

We have added new pricing plan "Pro + CRM", which includes free hosting of Shop-Script 6 and all Webasyst CRM apps, i.e. Helpdesk, Hub, and Mailer apps, and "Contacts PRO" plugin.

The new plan costs $29/mo. Like with other plans, a 20% discount also applies if you pay for 12 months at once. Thus, on the new plan, if paid for one year, your account will cost you only $23/mo.

Updated "Premium" plan

On "Premium" plan, hosting licenses of all apps developed by Webasyst are now totally free! The new "Premium" plan means having all great Webasyst functionality at the minimum price without license purchase requirement.

Note: Since February 1, 2016 the monthly fee on "Premium" plan will grow from $59 to $79. The prices of other plans will not be changed on February 1, 2016.

Archive plan "Mini"

The "Mini" plan ($3/mo, 1 GB, no paid apps included) has been moved to archive. If this plan is currently selected for your account, then you can continue to pay for it as before. However, after switching to a different plan, you will not be able to return to "Mini" anymore.
