Phase 1 complete!...woohooo!...shiny new website!
« on: November 10, 2011, 06:22:06 PM »
Okay, finally we get a chance to unveil what we have been working on lately.  Live payment gateway was established a couple of days ago and we have been testing it.

  The next week or so we arent going to announce it anywhere except here and the Facebook page whilst we ensure that there arent any bug or glitches we havent ironed out.  As soon as the kids are in bed i will be posting a guide to whats new and why.  This is phase 1, phase 2 and 3 are planned and i will give you more info later on.

Dont worry about changing bookmarks as very shortly the page for www.hasslefreeminiatures.co.uk will be redirecting onto the new site at www.hfminis.co.uk

thanks lots for your patience guys, check out the new releases already up and have a look aroudn the nw shop layouts, see if it is is easier for you to find stuff.  Any issues etc contact me please!

A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

As I said on Facebook, love the new site.  Hope the investment works out.

One issue (minor) - when you register, and then check your details, it shows you your own password in plain text.  That's slightly worrying because it means it's being stored as a password, probably in plain text in the database, rather than the more secure method of storing it as a hash + salt.

Might want to mention it to the folk who've put the site together for you - it makes me nervous about my data.

will do that right now.  thanks for pointing it out.  no payment data is stored on the site, everything money-wise goes through Sagepay , including even Paypal now so no more manual invoicing!

its because the Ltd company is VAT registered, so we show the prices excluding VAT and then VAT is added on at checkout.  This means that overseas customers who dont usually pay VAT can see more accurately the prices.

Guessed that was what it was - site looks pretty cool will try it out at the end of the month when Hogan & Almos are released !

Love the new stuff to scroll through at the top

The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't automatically take you to your payment details, you have to scroll back up and select them. Would be better if it came up automatically imo. Otherwise, very nice

No more typing out my address every order...I'm all registered now :)

It also means I can pay when I order, rather than waiting for the invoice...which means I can order when I like and that includes when I am away (ordering stuff for my return).

It's a good show...a jolly good show :mrgreen:!

We aim to ship your order the same day it arrives with us (during office hours of course!)

We ship worldwide and use a combination of Royal Mail First class, Royal Mail Airmail plus a global courier service.

Whilst the new site is ‘finding its feet’ we will continue to stick to our previous shipping policy which means your order will ship on the days we are staffed which are Monday, Thursday and Friday. Our aim by mid-October 2011 will be to be shipping orders each weekday.

If you place an order which is needed in a hurry then please ensure you send a follow up email and we will try to get it out to you faster.

Once your order is shipped you will receive an email confirmation to the email address you used to place the order, if you have selected a tracked service then your tracking number will also be sent at this time.

great site sally!

minor point you may want to fix the above?

yup, remember my posting a while ago about breaking something important....that was the new website when it was going live!  everything was ready to go at that stage and stuff written accordingly.

nope, you are fine.  we had to put certain legal stuff in the new site and we also took the opportunity to make a point about people nicking things off the website, in particular people who sell secondhand or new figures on places like Ebay and then use all of the images from our website to do it without checking first.  mostly FOdders who have blogs have asked if they can link.  i cant remember if youdid or you didnt but you have posted many times on here about the blog so i have had plenty of opportunity ti say if i dont like it!

Passed it along to the webmaster, it has already been amended temporarily and he will amend it permanently later on today

The new look is so much better. A hell of a lot easier to navigate, and I hope that it gets people to have a good look around (and buy some shiny happy toys!  :angel:)
