WooCommerce First Data/Authipay Gateway – PHP 7 and minor fixes

First Data/AIB Authipay Gateway for WooCommerce – What’s new

Our First Data/Authipay Gateway has been updated to version 1.2.17.161006. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Improved compatibility with PHP 7. The numeric currency codes in WC_Gateway_FirstData_Connect::$supported_currencies are now text. This will prevent PHP from interpreting them as octal number and raising an “Invalid Literal” error.
  • Fixed bugs that could cause debug messages to interfere with the payment process.

WooCommerce Currency Switcher – Fix for Dynamic Pricing price display

WooCommerce Currency Switcher – What’s new

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce has been updated to version 3.9.11.160928. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Fixed display of on sale/discounted prices with the Dynamic Pricing plugin. The Dynamic Pricing plugin uses its own internal logic to show products as “on sale” when a discount is applicable. This patch ensures that such logic will work correctly when the Currency Switcher is active.
    Note: the fix had already been implemented in the Currency Switcher 4.3.7.160816. If you use that version, you won’t need to download this update.

WooCommerce Prices by Country – Improved support for Bundles plugin

WooCommerce Prices by Country – What’s new

Prices by Country for WooCommerce has been updated to version 1.7.3.160730. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Improved compatibility with Bundles plugin. Fixed glitch in the Edit Product user interface, which was caused by a script included within the Bundles plugin. The script uses overly generic CSS selectors, which match the ones used you the UI elements introduced by the our plugin. The result was that product meta boxes were “mixed up” with other elements in the page.
    The issue must be fixed in the Bundles plugin itself, but we added a workaround that will allow our WooCommerce Prices by Country plugin to work correctly anyway.
