Luna Petunia Designs – Site with Shopping Cart

I am proud to introduce Luna Petunia Designs- Luna Petunia Designs offers print-at-home custom invitations as well as printed invitations for all occasions. Denise commissioned me to create a site that was fun & professional yet functional and easy to get around. She wanted to sell on her own site instead of only listing on Etsy.

To celebrate her new website, she is offering 20% off all printed orders. Just enter GRAND20 at checkout.

New Blog+Site with E-Commerce for Neat Greets! – Waynesboro, PA Web Design

Oh man, let me tell you how excited I am to be announcing this site! I met Kim Bain when she and her daughter came into the boutique to get some magnets for her daughters locker…When she found out I also did web design, she asked me if I could do a blog+site with a shopping cart for e-cards…Of course I jumped on it since it sounded like so much fun! She designed the site and kimtown coded it. I have to say I’m in LOVE with this site.

This site offers e-cards for kids in a SAFE environment. Purchase the cards or purchase a membership! Either way the cards are super cool and they are a great price. Check it out today!!


New Splash & Zen facelift for Rice Studio Supply

We recently worked with Rice Studio Supply on some new diggs…check them out! If you aren’t familiar with RSS, they carry, imprint and design Photo Packaging for Professional Photographers. They have beautiful products, great customer service and a great system for getting what you need for your photography business.

We also did some banners for them, but I won’t show them since they haven’t yet 🙂 Some things have to be a surprise 😀

If you have a ZEN CART AND use PAYPAL

Paypal has run into some issues with their Instant Payment Notifications (IPN). If you have a zen cart (unsure if this is happening on WP E-commerce) then you will NOT see your orders in your admin area until PayPal fixes this issue.

Here’s how it usually works:
A customer places and order and your shop directs them to pay with Paypal (if you are set up for that).

The user completes the transaction via paypal and is taken back to your site (to download their purchases if they have them)

Paypal talks to your shop to  let you know the user has paid and can receive their order. Herein lies the issue. Paypal is not talking back to your shop and therefore doesn’t recognize you have an order.


What you can do temporarily is to disable paypal checkout.
Go to your admin area of your cart
Under Modules, select Payment

Drop down ORDER STATUS and select PENDING
Save and return to your admin.

Once a user makes a purchase, the purchase will show up in your admin area, but will not be released until you receive payment AND manually release the purchase.

To release a purchase:
Go to your Admin
Click on the name of the New Order on the right column
On the right where it says product ordered click EDIT
Scroll all the way down to the bottom where the drop down box is and select “DELIVERED”
Check “Notify Customer” and “Append Comments” also
