HiveLIST Highlights: New Products- Better Security- Updated Payments
The development continues over on Hivelist! In the last week we have added some new products to the store, as well as really beefed up security of the Hivelist Store overall. On top of that, we semi fixed the original Hive payment plugin which now works great, but only with stablecoins...Let's start there...
As you all know, or may not know, we have been dealing with allot of payment processing issues on the store in recent months. We got dropped by our fiat payment processor, Stripe, who is second after PayPal dropped us. PayPal didn't give a reason of why, they just dropped us. We begged and pleaded, but nope. At least Stripe told me it is because of NFTs... WTF...Oh well, this makes us done with fiat. Why keep bouncing from company to company just to keep getting shut down because they consider us a restricted business in the United States, LOL.
Anyway, so now we are focused on stablecoin payments. We were having issues with both Hive payment options we had to work with as our retail store front uses WooCommerce on Wordpress. The original plugin we were using stopped doing the proper conversions, but still works fine with dollar based payment, just not for Hive, but there was also a call back issue where the payments were not properly processing. Hivepay just stopped working with the latest updates and so far there isn't an update planned anytime soon.
So we went to work trying to find the best solutions. We came up with a manual way to pay with HBD, but that wasn't good enough and too manual on both ends.
So we ended up finding a solution to one of the issues with the original Hive payment plugin from @roomservice, and now have it back working for stablecoin payments, but the converter doesn't work. But we fixed the call back issue so that at least our system can process orders. Virtual products happen instantly, but for physical products, as always, we have to process those on our end.
So now, with all that said... We are again accepting HBD, and now, SWAP.HBD, SWAP.BUSD, and SWAP.USDT! We also accept USDC and DAI through our Coinbase payment option.
In the eyes of Hivelist 1 HBD is the same as 1 USD!
Next we want to discuss the new security updates on the Hivelist Store! We done some updating in the back end and now have a way more secure site.
One of the biggest additions is the ability for store vendors to enable 2FA or Two Factor Authentication! This gives your account an extra layer of security! Currently, we do not have this option for customers, but should be coming in a later update. The 2FA allows store vendors to lock up their stores and know that if someone tries to break in, they can't without the owner's key!
We do get malicious people trying to search for usernames and such by scraping data to try and guess logins, but we have blocked allot of the ability to scrape the data which will help. We have also locked some known malicious IP addresses and will be keeping a watch out in the future. But we have pretty much created a fortress for our Hivelist Store vendors!
We have put out a few new products, and are working on trying to grow our product line. We have added some more consumer electronics products, but really trying to focus on finding items that we think of as being useful products.
This week we have added some good power banks and charging stations for all of your devices, most having wireless charging functionality. We are also looking at other electronic products that can be used by creators. We are currently a bit limited in our selection, but are working to find other sources as well.
We have also started to add some art products to the store! We have some nice specialty markers and paints and will be looking for other items in the artistic genres.
