My clients often ask me if and when they should upgrade their ECT or ECommerce Templates online stores. The ECT folks work quite hard to fix bugs and implement improvements and on average, will come out with a new version every month or two. So what’s a store owner to do?
First, log into your ECT store and see what the version is, and notice if there is any warning that a newer version has a security improvement. If that warning is there, I’d suggest upgrading.
If the warning isn’t there, but a newer version is available, you can use this link to compare what’s changed since the ECT store you have now, and what’s currently available: List of ECT Upgrades.
But I’d recommend folks upgrade at least once a year. Upgrades are generally easy to do, taking less than an hour.
You can request upgrades here at this ECT Updaters Request Page.
And if you need to purchase, you can do that here.Jill
