[DBTech] DragonByte eCommerce 3.3.0

No permission to buy ($29.95)
Update highlights

This version is a large upgrade with multiple new features and changes, many of which were requested by our community 🎉

The biggest new feature is Order generation / edit in the AdminCP. You're now able to edit Pending orders and add products to a user's cart, change pricing tiers and licenses for digital products' renewal orders. You can also generate a new order either manually or by adding all non-Lifetime licenses to a user's cart, or only add already expired licenses to their cart. You no longer have to ask users "could you please add these products to cart and then I'll add a coupon"!

The user experience (UX) for purchasing has also been improved in a number of ways. Firstly, there's now a "Checkout" button in the purchase overlay, which means fewer clicks if your customers are only interested in purchasing a single product. Secondly, sale information is now also shown on the product overview page, with both the "Sale" banner and the green pricing colour in the Pricing Information box. Lastly, the checkout page has received some back-end changes to ensure required license fields are saved whenever any action is taken; customers no longer need to manually save only those fields before they can do anything else.

Other than that, minor features, changes and features have been added to improve the overall experience. Please see the changelog for the full list of changes.

Update highlights

This version addresses a shortcoming in the User Criteria integration, where it was only possible to check for orders that were "Awaiting payment" but not "Pending. The difference is; an order "Awaiting payment" is where the payment process started but was aborted, whereas a "Pending" order did not even start the payment process.

Feature: New criteria: "User has one or more pending orders"
Change: Update composer packages

This version contains numerous fixes and improvements, most of which were contributed by @Xon.

The AdminCP product filter has been improved to use AJAX rather than simply filtering the current page, which should make finding the product you're looking for much easier.

A few issues with search indexing have been resolved, which should lead to more reliable search results for products.

The "Permanent additional user groups" setting for a product did not apply when a license was manually applied in the AdminCP.

Lastly, certain payment processors would cause a server error if a valid transaction ID was not found.

Complete Change Log

Feature: Filtering the AdminCP product list uses AJAX and not just filters the single page
Change: Index the tagline into the message body
Fix: Fix an issue where a server error could occur with certain payment processors
Fix: Fix error blocking creation of new products

Welcome to perhaps the biggest update to eCommerce since its launch! 🎉

With over two dozen new features, changes and fixes, there's something for everyone. Without further ado, I'll talk about some of the bigger features and changes made in this version.

The biggest new feature is the introduction of an "All-Access Pass" (AAP) feature. Designed for digital downloads, this feature allows you to define a user group to have free access to your products. Licenses created via the AAP will remain valid until such a time as the access lapses (the user is no longer a member of the defined user group).

The idea is that you can sell access to this new user group via the XenForo "User Upgrade" system, with promotional messaging directing users towards said upgrade, which will then enable them to create AAP licenses with one click.

This setup allows you to offer a subscription price for your products, with the full power of XenForo's payment profile system as valid subscription methods.

The next big feature is an entirely new product type; Serial Key.

The Serial Key product type can either use a list of pre-defined keys, or auto-generate keys based on a formula you enter when creating the product. When users purchase a key, an unused key is selected from the list (or generated), and assigned to that license. Buyers will then be able to view their serial key from their license list, same as any other product.

Lastly, SVG files are now accepted for product icons and invoice icons. This allows you to create icons that look good at any resolution.

There's also been over a dozen changes and bug fixes, check the full change log for the details.

This version updates the country fetching code to be more reliable, and no longer requires an API key. If you previously had problems fetching the country list, please run the "Update country list" cron job one more time manually, after which the list should populate itself correctly.

Furthermore, since no API key is needed, fresh installation should once again find the country list pre-populated.
