    Release Notes - 4.8.1

    Last month's release of 4.7 brought great new additions like Google Trusted Stores and Mailchimp integrations.

    This month release might not seem as impressive but it includes some important updates to the existing functions of the 3dcart system. This is the case for the customer's passwords encryption, and the Guest Checkout for customers with existing accounts.

    But the 4.8 release definitely brings some great features that I'm sure will be appreciated by 3dcart merchants; the most important being the implementation of Google's Rich Snippets, the "View All" option for category pages, and the ability to run multiple Groups of Daily Deals.

    We're also proud to be the first ecommerce provider to integrate the newly launched American Express Payment Gateway, which is now available to all 3dcart Merchants.
