New Feature: Paypal Express Checkout
Our big announcement this month is the roll-out of Paypal Express Checkout. While we have always allowed for Paypal payments on our sites, the new method is much more streamlined for shoppers and easier to track for site owners. If you are on MightyMerchant v5.1, the set up steps are quite simple.
Check out Setting Up PayPal Express Checkout on our support site to see what it takes to get going.
Tech Tip: Assigning an Item to Multiple Categories
One capability that has always been part of MightyMerchant, but not always well-understood, is the ability to place items in multiple categories. Please read Assigning Items to Multiple Categories to see the correct and easiest methods for placing your items on your site.

Pop vs. Imap: What you Need to Know
With the increase usage of smartphones, many customers need to check their email from a variety of devices. Managing email becomes a little more challenging when taking the multi-access approach.
The correct solution for many users is to use IMAP when you set up your email client on each device. Many users currently have their email client set to POP instead of IMAP.
We have prepared a document to explain the difference between POP and IMAP and why you would consider one over the other. Have a look at POP vs. IMAP: Which Should You Choose.
New Sites and Mobile Redesigns
We have been working very hard over the past month, it is amazing that we only have one new site to announce. Well, just be ready for next month!
This month we feature a full re-design of http://www.bellpineartfarm.com
One really cool feature of this site is our new "Suggested Wholesale Collections" feature. This feature allows the site owner to pre-configure suggested groups of items for customers. When the customers log into their wholesale accounts, they can easily order any collection.
