MySLP Service Is Getting Stripe – Downtime May 16th 2017

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.

2017-05-16 Maintenance Window

The MySLP website will experience a brief period of downtime on Tuesday May 16th 2017 from 11AM EST until 11:20AM EST.    Customer Maps may be offline for up 2 to 3 minutes during part of the upgrade process.

MySLP 17.5 Brings Store Locator Plus 4.7.9 Online

The latest version of the MySLP service is now online and includes the latest versions of the Store Locator Plus application stack.

Locator Features

The locator now employs a lighter communication interface in JavaScript reducing memory on the user’s browser and network traffic between your site and the MySLP server to increase locator performance.    Enterprise level users that are using  the territory bounds feature have some patches that fix an issue where some searches would not get a response from the server when no locations were being returned.  Power level users that employ the location categories to filter their location results will not improved performance on searches.  Power level users also get improved CSV import performance in the latest MySLP update.

Account Upgrade/Downgrade

This update also includes a revised dashboard that has an improved interface for upgrading your account level and performing other account features.   Changing your account level or restarting a suspended subscription is now a one-click process from My Profile when logged into the MySLP Dashboard.

Coming Soon

We are well underway with the 17.6 release of the MySLP service.   This coming release brings direct credit card billing through Stripe services for all new accounts.    Existing accounts will be able to request assistance if they wish to migrate from PayPal to direct credit card billing for their service.
