With the news full of tales of cyber attacks and hackers, you may be wondering about the safety of the data you and your members share with Wild Apricot.

We’ve put together a blog post to let you know some of the key security procedures we use to keep your data safe. We’ll also cover some simple steps you can take to make sure your data stays safely locked away. We constantly update these procedures and work to uphold globally-recognized data security standards.

Looking for more technical information? This page goes into more detail about the types of testing and guidelines our team uses to ensure our infrastructure stays secure.

 

New Online Store Features

We’ve added a number of new features to our online store this month, including stock management, support for multiple product options, and control over whether to accept online or offline payments.

You can now add multiple options for each product in your online store. For example, you can add both size and color options for the same product.

When adding a product, you can now specify a stock limit so that sales are stopped after your available stock has been sold. If you have no product options (like size or color), you can enter a single stock quantity for the product. If you do have product options set up, you can specify the stock quantity for each individual variant.

Finally, you can now choose whether to accept online payments, offline payments, or both for online store orders. This option appears on the new Store settings screen, where you can also customize the emails sent to customers and administrators.

You can find out more about how to use these features by visiting our Support site.

Next in store for the online store: taxes! 

 

Accept Mobile Payments Using Wild Apricot Payments

You can now accept credit card payments from your iOS device using Wild Apricot Payments and record those payments in your Wild Apricot account.

You’ll need a Wild Apricot Payments/AffiniPay account set up to work with your Wild Apricot account as well as the Wild Apricot admin app on iOS.

If you're using AffiniPay's card reader, you can insert or swipe the card. If you're not using AffiniPay's card reader, you will manually enter the card details.
