What's New in Goldfish 4.4 Part 7: Onlineshop

In this series, we will show you interesting new features of Goldfish 4.4. Today: The new online shop. From Goldfish 4.4, the online shop also supports the payment methods credit card, direct debit and invoice, provided by PayPal Plus.

In Goldfish 4.4 we have fundamentally revised the online shop. The new online shop offers much more flexibility through new functions for you and your customers.

The new features in detail:
  • The online shop runs now always in a single window. If you use PayPal, the redirection will be automatic and PayPal will no longer open a new window. As a result, the online shop runs now much smoother on mobile devices.
  • You can now offer the payment methods credit card, direct debit and invoice.  With PayPal Plus, the payments are directly credited to your PayPal account in all three cases. PayPal even assumes the risk of payment default and you will get your money paid out in any case. *
  • It is now possible to place an order on a company.
  • Sales tax can now be set per country. This allows you to correctly calculate the tax according to EU rules (domestic, EU foreign private customer, EU foreign corporate customer with VAT ID or third country).
  • You can give a general discount like "10% on everything".
  • With coding skills, you can add more payment providers. For this, the new online shop offers a SDK.
If you already use PayPal with the Goldfish online shop, Goldfish 4.4 will require new PayPal API keys. Read this document to learn how to generate these keys: http://www.services.fishbeam.com/help/?help=goldfish4&language=en&page=store&book=1&preview=1

Redesigned Goldfish website showcase

We have redesigned and expanded the Goldfish website showcase. Among other things, a preview of the websites is now displayed.

You can present your website to visitors of fishbeam.com and other Goldfish users in the Goldfish Showcase. In addition to more visitors, your website will also get a better Google placement. This is because the placement at Google significantly dependents on how many external links point to your website. With the Goldfish showcase entry, you already have one more.



Also collect Likes and get a higher placement in the showcase. The laptop above the showcase displays a randomly changing selection of websites.
