The last month has been a busy time at Digital Delivery App HQ. Here's some of the things that have been going on:
Server Hardware Upgrade
After a large software upgrade towards the end of the last year, we've now performed a large hardware upgrade. This includes a new uber scalable design, more processing power, faster caching and better monitoring. The migration completed over the weekend with no downtime and we're currently sitting at 10x capacity we had last week. We spent a lot of time worrying about the scalability of the service in the future so with our new design dropping in new resource is a breeze. With new sub-minute resolution monitoring we can monitor long term performance of the system and know exactly when upgrades will be needed. A few customers have already reported an increase in site speed and we're glad it's noticable (it wasn't exactly slow beforehand either!). With our new architecture we can keep this level of service for the long term and won't be effected by flash sales, big launches or any other such events that our customers regularly challenge us with!
Affiliate site links
Previously accounts were limited to one affiliate site link but we have now lifted this restriction allowing you to create as many site links as you like. This is extremely useful for merchants running several sites through one account. Site links can be managed from the general affiliates page under the Account tab.
Shopify integration upgrade
Shopify integration has been upgraded to provide a smoother experience. We now have an easier onboarding process, more importing options and the ability to add download links to customer account areas. This has been based on customer feedback so many thanks for sending in all the emails.
Stripe GBP support
Stripe has added Beta support for pounds sterling (GBP) with euros on the way soon. We're on the beta so have tested and added support for other merchants that are too. We'll add euro support as soon as it's released by Stripe.
That's all for now. Plenty more exciting stuff in the pipeline the next few months. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog for more.
