March 10, 2010 Release Notes


The big news with this release? The Populi Bookstore. Now you can run your college Bookstore with Populi. Featuring a Point of Sale Terminal, inventory management and reporting, and, of course, an online shopping cart, Populi Bookstore is accessible to all of your users as well as any visitors to your website.

Credit Card Processing

More big news, actually: Now you can accept credit card payments directly through Populi. Students (or parents) can pay their invoices online, and you can accept credit cards as payment in your Bookstore! To make use of these features, you'll need a merchant account through Chase Paymentech OR an payment gateway account, which can connect your existing merchant account with Populi.

Payment Plan Enhancements

Payment Plans now figure in pending and disbursed financial aid in their calculations.

Online Learning Gets a Facelift

Numerous interface and aesthetic enhancements to online testing make test-taking easier on students and test-grading easier on your faculty.
