What’s new in the it’seeze shop
More payment gateways - including Stripe
Stripe offers a fully integrated solution – meaning your customers no longer have to leave your website to complete a payment.
Product filtering now available
You can now choose a number of filters for customers to use when browsing your shop, including product category, price, size, colour, and style.
Wishlist feature added
This allows your customers to keep track of items they may wish to purchase in the future. They can also share their wishlist with friends and family.

More control of delivery settings
You can now specify exactly which postcodes are included and excluded, allowing you to establish different charges for different delivery regions.
How we’ve improved security and reliability
Introduced SSL certificates
If your domain name is registered with us, then your website will have this certificate. This ensures any sensitive information sent through your website is encrypted.
More secure hosting
Our new servers have limited accessibility and are increasingly more resistant to the cyber-attacks which cause websites to be taken down unexpectedly.
Increased website back-ups
All of the files associated with your website are now backed up daily.
Improved spam detection
If your email account is provided through us, then you’ll be benefitting from continuous spam filter updates.
How we’ve helped your website achieve GDPR compliance
Confirmation component available to all
Whatever your package, you can now add a tick box to a form that visitors must tick before they can submit their details. This is essential for capturing consent.
Data access permissions enabled
If you have an it’seeze Shop website then your customers are able to see what data you hold on them and to delete it if they wish to.***
Updated cookie notice
When visitors land on your website, they now have the option to either accept all cookies, or to opt in or out of non-essential cookies.
Consent for blog comments
In accordance with GDPR, visitors to your blog will now have to consent to having their name and comment published on your website before they submit their comment.
How we’ve made it easier to access support

Improved client newsletters

The technical support team at our national support hub has nearly doubled in recent years, so there’s always someone with the knowhow available to assist you.
