The My Store Locator Plus subscription service is ready for Stripe. Stripe provides better coupon management, account upgrade and downgrade prorated fees, and direct credit card billing. During our testing we have also found that subscription changes are instantaneous which eliminates the “in limbo” state that was problematic with some PayPal accounts.
All new accounts will go through Stripe. Pre-existing accounts that wish to switch to Stripe can contact us to assist with changing their processor to Stripe after they cancel their PayPal subscription. We will make sure all account data and settings remain intact and that you have as little downtime as possible. Most accounts will have ZERO downtime should they choose to change over to Stripe. Existing accounts that choose to stay with PayPal will be able to do so.
Along with this update are several minor updates such as improved history logging on all accounts to better track what is going on with subscription renewals, account upgrades, and the current state of the subscription.

The MySLP service may experience a temporary service disruption expected to last no more than 5 minutes while we upgrade the system to our 17.3 release. This update focuses on the subscription renewal process as it deals with an issues some of our subscribers have had with their PayPal recurring payment not properly extending their subscription. In addition this update will include the following service refinements:
Minor performance improvements when logging into the dashboard and when the locator interface is being pushed from our server to your website.
Addresses issues with the Advanced Options interface for importing locations. Some users could have experienced issues with the import not starting when clicking “upload” depending which features were checked.
