Display A Name launches a new Online Shop

displayanameJT Website Design is proud to launch the latest addition to our family of client websites.

Company: Display A Name
Description: Custom 3-D acrylic wall lettering for nurseries and kid’s rooms
Website: www.displayaname.com

What a cute and fun website! This bundle of joy (sorry, couldn’t resist) is an e-commerce site offering premium wall decor for kid’s rooms. Customers can order custom acrylic wall lettering and preview their text, colors, and fonts right on the screen before they order.

Not only does Display A Name make a beautiful custom product, they’re also giving back to the community by donating a portion of each purchase to a charity that serves children. Now that’s a win-win situation for everyone!

We had fun working on this website, and wish Display A Name a successful launch in their new business venture. Cheers to new beginnings!

Sales and Use Tax Rate Increase

Due to voter approval of Proposition 30, the statewide sales and use tax rate will increase one quarter of one percent (0.25%) on January 1, 2013. The higher tax rate will apply for four years — January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016.

For online internet merchants, now is a good time to double-check the tax settings on your e-commerce cart. Make sure all California residents are being charged the appropriate percentage as posted on the Board of Equalization’s website. Non-California residents are not required to pay sales tax unless your business has a physical location in their state.

For more information on this increase, please visit BOA’s tax rate increase webpage. For a listing of tax rates, please visit the California City & County Sales & Use Tax Rates webpage.

ZenCart E-commerce Upgrade to v1.5

If you haven’t upgraded your ZenCart e-commerce site to version 1.5 yet, now is the time to do so. The new version was released almost a year ago, and that means anyone still on 1.3.9 (or older) has very outdated software which can leave your site open to security breaches and compromised customer cardholder data.
