After several months of planning and hard work we are finally there with our new website!
We started the build back in August 2020 after our current website hosting company decided to stop offering ecommerce solutions and move in a different direction. It was a sad day for us as we have been with them many years.
We then looked at the industry and listened to our customers on both the positive and negative website experiences they have had with websites in general within the airsoft industry and believe our new system will be considerably faster and easier to navigate.
As with any system migrations however there will be some teething issues!
Because of data issues and GDPR guidelines, we could not easily and securely migrate customer data such as logins and order history to the new site. For this reason, we felt the best way to keep your data safe was to start the new system with a clean slate.
Unfortunately, this does mean that all customers will need to re-register and create a new account, and that previous order history will not be viewable online. Rest assured however that we do still have access to your full order history, so should you ever need to access it (such as for queries on warranty issues) we will still be able to access this and provide it for you.
Additionally, we are aware of some small styling issues, with some adverts but we are working on these and over time will standardise our adverts across the website.
We want to express our personal thanks to the team for making this possible. Be it support, development, data transfer or graphic design, you all had to put up with our demanding and changing targets, but in the end, you all pulled through!
Over the coming months we have lots more exciting features and products to be added, so stay tuned for an exciting year with Actionhobbies!
