Invition Print & Ship 1.1.3 for WordPress now available

We just released Invition Print & Ship version 1.1.3 for WordPress. This version contains a complete code revision and cleanup for the cronjobs and the callback functions.

Cronjobs

The cronjob now works through the WordPress default cron system to comply with the plugin guidelines as preparation for the official release in the plugin directory. The settings for the cronjob have been removed as we noticed a lot of users set their cronjob on a very long timeframe. It’s important to have the latest product stocks in your database to prevent disapointed users, therefore we made the cronjob fixed on every 5 minutes. The cronjob fires when pages are loaded. For small websites this is fine but for larger websites with a lot of visitors you can improve the page speed by disabling the default WordPress cron and create a real cronjob. SiteGround has a nice tutorial for this, Please make sure you set the cronjob for every 5 minutes at least!

Callback processing

The callback script was also completely removed to make sure we meet the guidelines. This is now integrated with an API endpoint in the WordPress REST API. You can test your callback URL by going to:

<YOURDOMAIN>/wp-json/invition-print-ship/v1/callback

This page should display a success notice.

WooCommerce plugin updated to version 1.1.2

Invition Print & Ship version 1.1.2 has just been published containing some code cleanup and a bugfix for shipping. Before version 1.1.2 all shipping was forced to premium resulting in unexpected shipment fees. Version 1.1.2 makes sure all orders are posted with minimum shipment level Normal. This means your order will be shipped with regular mail by default.

When you order for a customer outside of the EU, your order will be upgraded automatically to Tracked mail to prevent loss of your parcel. When you order over a certain amount of products, your order will be upgraded to Premium shipment. This is a full parcel service with Track and Trace and insurance. If you would like to know more about upgrade rules and shipping costs, please contact your account manager. We will be glad to tell you more about the services.
