Hi, guys!

 

We've released CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.6.3. This is a patch release, so it contains mostly bug fixes. But there's something new, too.

 

Product variations fixes. This functionality is still in beta, and here's what we improved this time: 1) options and their variants are displayed in a correct order when generating a product variation, 2) the Free Shipping property is available for the variation bulk editing, 3) the demo data now has a configurable product, 4) the product variation in stock tracking works fine, 5) product features are now displayed for variations on the comparison list, 6) export of product variation features now works fine on PHP 5.3, 7) product variations don’t slow down the store now.

 

Improvements for customers: 1) when a customer selects an option combination or a product variation, the product image changes accordingly, 2) the menu items are always highlighted now, 3) the link to files of downloadable products is now correct, 4) the USPS integration updated, 5) Google ReCaptcha works stably, 6) custom profile fields fixed.

 

Improvements for admins: 1) the new version of Redactor was added—Redactor 2, 2) managers working with the product catalog can use the global search in the admin panel now, 3) the Exclude disabled products setting in the Data Feeds add-on works correctly, 4) a raw value for tax variables was added to the invoice editor, 5) the Comments and Reviews feature now works with category bulk editing, 6) Multi-Vendor installation finishes successfully on shared hostings and low-performance servers.

 

To find more information about these improvements with screenshots and videos, go to the release post in our blog via this link: http://blog.cs-cart....ustomer-fixes/.

 

You are very welcome to discuss the release here.

It's nice to see some new features however i still feel Cs-cart lacks some really basic features like adding RoyalMail to the list of Carriers.

Developers added a field to quick add to admin new order, but you cannot search by product sku, only by name, so its useless new feature..

 

I cannot understand why they do not consult with users regarding functionality..


4.5.2 SP2

Guys,

 

Am I right that you need:

1. ability to add custom Carrier in order to select it at order detailed page

2. and have a correct URL to track the shippment in email notification?

1. Yes
2. In email notifinacion for new sippment, order status change and in storefront customer order details page


I am not using any of built in shipping carriers. So unthincking disabling hiding them would be nice too.

Hi imac. The above would be great. We have set a shipping method as RoyalMail. When we dispatch orders, we have to select an in-correct carrier in order to create a detailed shipment.

 

I just found the below.

I think you need to listen to users more and address issues like this first before adding any new features. This way you will have an edge over other platforms and keep your users for life. I tried 2-3 different platforms over the past few years. The only reason I stayed with cs-cart is due to the great product import feature that works perfectly with our database system.

And need to finish integrate vendor plans. Seems it left on half way. You can setup vendor plan but not integrated with payment option. There is no way how to collect one off payment or monthly/yearly.

Vendor Plans integrated with PayPal Adaptive Payments.

Also there is a Stripe Connect add-on in the Marketplace.

OK guys I have finally got around to testing the new product variations add on, specifically with the data feed which is critical to get right with google:

 

I have setup a product with a size option and 3 sizes (equivalent in google = Google size)

 

I have set the feed to only export 'product variation' expecting 3 lines in the output but I still get the main product also and none of the below to link the variants and differentiate them?

 

-------------------

item_​​group_​​id [item_​​group_​​id] (https://support.goog.../answer/6324507)

  • color [colour]

  •  

  • size [size]

  •  

  • pattern [pattern]

  •  

  • material [material]

  •  

  • age_​group [age_​group]

  •  

  • gender [gender]

  •  

Should something new be in field mapping?

 

Also for converting products to configurable products it would be a great help if the features were to be duplicated from the main product, mainly the brand, condition and availability. Availability should really be dynamic from the inventory.

Vendor Plans integrated with PayPal Adaptive Payments.

Also there is a Stripe Connect add-on in the Marketplace.

 

When vendor registering and choosing the plan, for example to pay monthly, he will not redirect to paypal to pay. I didn't find documentation how the money it is collecting. Or I miss something?

In that case you cannot claim it is integrated. I seen already here topics where people asking about it and the answer was need additional coding. Am I right?

 

Regards

There is no such functionality at the moment. I suggest you to create hidden product for each plan and provide vendor with the URL to corresponding product after the vendor account is created and approved

I think the packages with the new version were badly packaged (tgz). After unzipping all files have 777 permissions.

Thank you for providing an alternative, eCom. Unfortuantely, it's still not a solution if you have more than 20 vendors on your site. If you have hundreds of vendors, you're not gonna verify every single one of them every month for payment manually.  CS-Cart needs to add an automatic payment system for vendors that can disable their accounts automatically if they don't pay or something like that.

 

It's just frustrating that they offer an expensive Multi-Vendor edition with no actual monthly payment method for Vendors.

There is always room for improvement. Sure that they will do it someday! To say the truth, I met the discussion about this issue a year ago on this forum and Cs-Cart team didn't plan to make it in the nearest future.  So, still, it is an issue!

 

But, at the moment, you can just look for other variants or patiently wait for this functionality in the official CS-Cart release!

At least it will be required to review all integrated payment gateways (about 90 items) since some of the require to specify all items in the order and compare order total with the sum of items cost
