We’re thrilled to announce the shiny new Knack status page! You can find it at status.knack.com.

If you ever experience an interruption in service, be sure to check the status page first. As soon as an issue arises, we’ll post about it there, and will then follow up with the resolution, cause, and other relevant details.

Moving forward, we'll also be posting these updates to our dedicated Twitter status page. Follow along at @knackstatus!

We will use these pages to document both widespread and localized issues that we're investigating. However, if you’re having trouble with your app and don’t see a recent update and explanation on the status page, you should reach out directly to support so we can help troubleshoot.

We want to keep our customers informed and up-to-date on anything that could be affecting their experience of Knack, and are excited about how these pages can help us do just that.

Happy building!

E-Commerce Updates!

11/28/2017 Posted by Carson

We’re very excited to announce some upgrades to our e-commerce functionality! Accepting payments with your Knack app just got even easier.

Saving Payment Methods

In the past, payments were submitted exclusively via checkout forms where users had to manually enter their payment information each time. Now your app can save a user’s payment method, so future payments are quicker and simpler.

Securely storing payment information in Knack means that users can log in to submit payments at any time, or you can charge their payment method as you complete services:

E-commerce is a great way to set your app up to make donations, purchase tickets, or place orders. Now that user’s payment methods can be saved for future use, activities like online bill pay, submitting invoices, and call-in payment services are easier than ever.
