Easy PayPal Buttons is temporarily free!

Due to personal and other commitments that is preventing me from developing and supporting Easy PayPal Buttons, it is now free until I'm able refocus on it.  If you have an active subscription, support will continue to be given as quickly as possible, but do expect delayed responses. If you bought Easy PayPal Buttons in the last couple weeks, a refund has been issued. Otherwise, consider the software WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get).


HartlessByDesign Rebranded

Although I have enjoyed the play on words, I've decided its probably time to change the name the company does business under to something more "appealing."  I will keep the company name as HartlessByDesign, LLC but will now be doing business as DevKardia. 

DevKardia stems comes from a couple things. First, I'm not really a designer.  You show me what you want and I can usually make it happen.  But designing graphics and sites from scratch is unfortunately something I was not blessed with.  So I'm moving away from "design" to more of what I do best: "develop." Even though I'm named Hartless, those that know me can attest that I'm not heartless at all and thus find it very ironic that I'm named such.  I still want a little play on words for that reason and thus wanted to still go with something regarding the "heart."  Kardia is ancient Greek for "heart" but it means so much more.  It seems to also refer to the mental, physical, and spiritual states of individuals; their understanding and intelligence; their passions, desires and purposes; and their will and character. My desire for the company is to show heart, soul, understanding, knowledge and purpose.  Thus, the name DevKardia has come to be.

Easy PayPal Buttons 5.0.0 Released!

We are super excited to finally release EzPPb 5.0.0! (Originally it was only going to be 4.1.0 but so much work has gone into it that we decided to give it a bump!).  5.0.0 has dropped support for Joomla! 1.5.x and added support for Joomla! 3.0.x.  Joining the Boostrap craze with the introduction of J! 3.0, EzPPb has followed suit with Bootstrapped buttons, frontend and backend views and it is beautiful!

Also, included in this version are a few new features.  

Need a simple store front?  EzPPb can now do that for you!  Just create a new EzPPb Store Front menu item, choose the categories to include, tweak a few settings and there ya go; you've got a store front.

You can now also assign surcharges to options within the extra drop down menus.  Each selection will cumulatively add the surcharge to the amount to be charged.

Want to use coupon codes for shopping cart buttons, service buttons and the built in cart?  You got it!  With version 5.0.0, you can set advanced discount profiles to apply globally to all buttons (not just those with the discount assigned to it).  This is perfect for the scenario where a coupon code is defined, required, and would apply to any button.  Of course you can still restrict discount codes by assigning them within the button's config.  

EzPPb now uses beautiful Bootstrapped modals for shipping addresses, PayPal pro checkouts, button submissions, and coupon codes.  

Want to see it in action? Check out the demo sites!  Or if you have a valid subscription, download it now!
