Site progress and bug fixes

Author: admin | Filed under: Development

The site has had a few site bugs which have been fixed promptly to ensure listing a car and sign up works correctly across all browsers.  It appears the server environment had stopped working due to a security upgrade and there were some form errors in some browser in particular Google Chrome.

The next step is stream line the car listing process by adding suggestions for users what to add for each field and possible removing some unnecessary fields that make the process a bit tedious.

Awaiting approval from the St George Bank

Author: admin | Filed under: Development

Well final testing has been finished and all that awaits the site to go live is approval from the St George Bank and an account created with eWay. This is the preferred payment system of Infinite Networks because of the competitive rate St George provides on its Internet Merchant Facilities and eWay’s excellent XML payment service which enables cost effective coding and credit card processing.

Once approved the site can start accepting advertisers and go live. We expect this to take about a week and hope to be live before the end of the month.
