The Veteran Tree Service Company

WebCitz would like to share The Veteran Tree Service‘s website. Although our company did NOT provide the design, we have been working with them for the past month to boost their placement online for Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay homeowners looking for tree services such as tree trimming, tree removal and tree stump grinding. Our team has also provided a few minor design improvements, but nothing major.Please check them out if you are local to the Fox Cities – they employ US Veterans of the Army, Navy and Marines so considering them for your tree service work also helps out our veterans! www.appletonwitreeservice.com

The Social Media Website for Rich People!

You know Facebook is getting crowded when you can’t talk about yachts, private jets and caviar without someone from the 99% chiming in with their opinion about your excessive transportation and eating habits! A new social network named “Netropolitan” has sprung up hoping to distance itself from the 99% and serve only the 1% through a social network that costs $9,000 to join for the first year and $3,000 annually thereafter. It will be interesting to see how this type of social network takes off and whether it actually ends up being any different from the common people’s social options. Then again – “amazing” selfies and useless personal updates permeate all social classes. www.netropolitan.info


USPS API Updates Coming September 7 & September 28, 2014

USPS is making two changes to its API this month on September 7th and September 28th which may impact your ecommerce storefronts. USPS is changing a few uncommon shipping services and country names on September 7th, 2014 and dropping support for their RateV3 API on September 28th, 2014. If you have an ecommerce website running Magento or newer you are in the clear, but if your version is older you will need to consider installing the patch released by WebShopApps. If you are running an ecommerce website on an older version of some other ecommerce platform you will need to look into whether or not this USPS API update will impact your website prior to the dates mentioned. Please let us know if you need assistance!
