#316487 Upgrade From 3.0.6 To 4.2.3

Posted by imac on 13 June 2019 - 12:02 PM in Installation & Upgrade

We are trying to upgrade a 3.0.6 CS-Cart store to 4.x.

The first step in this process is to use the Store Import tool to go from 3.0.6 to 4.2.3.

 

The problem we are having is that we can't seem to find a location to download a blank copy of the 4.2.3 software.

 

We have lodged a support ticket, but we are wondering if there is a download link elsewhere. We checked the cs-cart user file section, but all that had was a 3.0.6 download and a 4.10 download.

Hi, there is no link in public. Tech support should provide you with a 4.2.3 package, so follow the ticket updates.




#317353 Cs-Cart Speed : Which Version ?

Posted by imac on 03 July 2019 - 11:36 AM in General Questions

I have a website running with Cs-Cart 4.5

I'm thinking of making updates but as i'am actually not totally satisfied with speed, i don't want to have a slower website with a newer version.

 

I read 4.7.1 was slower again, is it true ?

And which version do you think is the fastest Cs-cart release ?

 

Thanks for help :)

There were no serious performance issues or performance updates in 4.5 - 4.10. Even though there some new features, but I do not recommend you skip the upgrade because someone wrote that it is slower. It's depend a lot on configuration of CS-Cart.

 

The best scenario is install demo store, upgrade it and make the performance tests. Also good hosting with Nginx, latest PHP version (not lower that php 7.1) and correct configuration will improve the performance of you store. That's for sure.




#311200 Dashboard In The Admin Panel Of Multi-Vendor.

Posted by imac on 18 January 2019 - 07:51 AM in Upcoming Features, Feedback, Feature Requests

Hi,

 

What information, you as Marketplace owner would like to see at the Dashboard.

I suppose for now there for sure should be information about Vendors activity, because vendors and their activity are the key for success business.

 

I plan to add the following data to the dashboard of root admin (store owner)

Vendors with sales: XX - how many vendors got the orders for selected period

New Vendors: XX- number of vendors registered in the selected period

Vendors with new products: XX - how many vendors created new products for this period

Not logged in Vendors: XX - vendors who did not log in for the period.

New Products: XX - number of products created for the selcted period

Orders created: XX - number of orders placed for the selected period.

 

What do you think about these numbers? Please share you ideas.




#310089 Show Po Number On Invoice

Posted by imac on 17 December 2018 - 10:52 AM in Hints & Modifications

Hi Unfortunately it is not pissoble without some extra coding. 

 

What you should do is change this file: app/Tygh/Template/Document/Order/Variables/OrderVariable.php

Just add these lines:

            'payment_info' => array(
                'po_number', 'company_name', 'buyer_name', 'position'
            ),

After this code:

            'raw' => array(
                'timestamp', 'notes', 'display_subtotal', 'discount', 'subtotal_discount', 'payment_surcharge',
                'display_shipping_cost', 'total'
            ),

After this you should be able to see payment_info variable in the order_info values, like this: https://www.evernote...wP_I2DjuY1_6_VA

 

Just click on the required variable and it will be added to the document: https://www.evernote...wP_I2DjuY1_6_VA

 

Hope this will help.




#316911 New Checkout With 4.10 Help

Posted by imac on 21 June 2019 - 10:29 AM in General Questions

I wish I had not upgraded now. I cannot believe they made such radical changes to the checkout process that effectively remove options that were available to customers before the update. 

 

Plus the lack of postcode shipping calculations would be disastrous for us!

The old checkout (the one from 4.9.3) is still working in 4.10 and you can switch to it any time. 




#314438 Option Combinations To Be Removed In 4.10.1

Posted by imac on 17 April 2019 - 10:21 AM in Upcoming features

I think it's a good idea but you have to give us more details. How exactly will the conversion look like. Will you include the conversion tool in 4.10.1 RC? If yes, it's crucial that you wait for the feedback of the beta testers.

 

Our store heavily relies on option combinations and the transition has to be made perfect.

Yes, we plan to include the conversion tools to 4.10.1RC




#311197 Multi-Vendor Upgrade, Question About B2B Functionality

Posted by imac on 18 January 2019 - 07:00 AM in Why CS-Cart

 

  1. Can multi-vendor upgrade to multi-vendor plus after purchasing?
     
  2. I intend to set up a medical supplies ecommerce platform. A lot of my potential venvdors are seeking to expand their operations overseas. Does cs-cart have a "request quotation" or enquiry feature similar to drugdu.com or alibaba?

 

1. Yes, it's possible. You should buy upgrade of your license. And just set the new Multi-Vendor Plus license in your Multi-Vendor installation. So there is no need to reinstall the store and make some tech works. 




#305276 Limiting Categories For Vendors

Posted by imac on 14 August 2018 - 06:52 AM in General Questions

Hello imac,

 

In your demo, you have 5 plans and "all categories" are in each plan. So all vendors see all categories.

 

For me UNIVERS =  OFFICE or WATCHES or ELECTRONICS or BABY...

 

I think your agree that if you have 40 plans on this companies.vendor_plans page (8univers x 5vendorsplan = 40 plans), it will no longer be understandable to attract sellers...

 

But I agree with your argument "Changing categories through vendor plan would be much easier."

 

So to respect your logic and be understandable, WHEN will you propose on companies.vendor_plans page, to start by selecting an UNIVERS (Baby, Computers, Electronics) to after present and choose between Plan's categories ?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

You can use the Hidden plans. In case the plan is hidden Vendor can no subscribe for it. But during review you can assign this plan to a vendor.

e.g. here is the list of plans I have in the backend: https://www.evernote...EmJbkR_x0NcQk-4

Here is what vendor see in admin area: https://www.evernote...pxKjYTvUahtgYQk

#313665 Cs-Cart Progress: February 2019 Video Report

Posted by imac on 26 March 2019 - 11:06 AM in News and Announcements

I've asked for the product barcode (gtin, ean) multiple times in different threads. No response so far from the cs-cart architects team.

 

It should be moved to cscart_products table, it's the only logical place to be. It's not a feature, it's not translatable and it would highly improve datafeed generation for amazon, google, ebay etc.

 

Could someone finally tell us, why you don't want to do this?

 

Dear Jacek,

 

Thank you for the paying our attention to products barcode.

Can you please write a workflow you are planning to use the barcode? Something like:

- barcode number should be displayed and editable at product page in admin area

- barcode should ..

- admin shoud ..

- ..

etc. 

 

I'm asking because each company has their own workflow to use barcode. I will appreciate you feedback on this. 




#314437 Cs-Cart Progress: February 2019 Video Report

Posted by imac on 17 April 2019 - 10:19 AM in News and Announcements

I agree with you on this. What I like in CS-Cart is their concentration on features. The design is not an issue at all as everyone has his own identity and branding. Moreover, changing the design by 3rd-parties smoother than having them add new features. I mean front end development produces fewer bugs and no fatal errors than backend. 

 

 

However, CS-Cart should pave the way for developers to create and implement modern features. To name few, there should be an improvement for: 

 

1- Upgrading UI JS libraries like JQuery UI, Owl Carousel.. etc. For example, I wanted to apply stage-padding to one of my scroller, I couldn't becuase of an outdated Owl version. 

2- Changing Image previewers to modern ones. It is the time to get rid of this magnific pop-up and shift to PhotoSwipe. Also, the versions of these previeweres are still outdated. BTW, source files size of PhotoSwipe if very similar to Magnific Popup.

3- The recent improvements to the Layout manager is great. It should be enhanced to include Pages Hirarchy, adding CSS/JS blocks, AJAX updates, Changes History... etc. We should be able to inherit layout blocks from a master layout. The ability to add a block with custom CSS/JS code is also needed. 

4- Dynamic linking of Google Fonts API, Fontawsome icons... etc.

We are going to release some changes in 4.10 from the list.

1. The jquery will be updated to v3.3.1

2. CloudZoom plugin will be replaced with ImageZoom. We also added swipe for product images. It's important for mobile devices
3. That could make Layout manager bigger and more difficult to understand, so no such plans yet.




#304662 Vendors Geolocation, Search On Map And By Location

Posted by imac on 30 July 2018 - 08:50 AM in Upcoming Features, Feedback, Feature Requests

i asked ,before implemeting this addon, that it will be better to put the field " Location " under product update instead of vendor update.

This is about warehouses, not Vendor geolocation feature.

It's working correctly. Popup is open because you did not fill required fields - Firstname and lastname.




#305746 Multi-Vendor Roadmap

Posted by imac on 23 August 2018 - 07:57 AM in Upcoming Features, Feedback, Feature Requests

Can I ask when you might be looking to implement a solution for the new Marketplace Facilitator Laws which have come into effect his year in a few States. Deeming marketplaces (multi-vendor stores) now liable to collect and remit sales taxes on behalf of vendors selling in specific states?

 

Both the add-ons available from Taxjar and Avalara do not work with multi-vendor. Does this make your multi-vendor software non compliant in the US at State level?? 

Hi,

 

Multi-Vendor allows you to configure taxes, comissions as a store owner. So in fact you can just hold the sale tax amount from vendor orders as a commission.

Hi, any good news about the mobile application? 

Hi, yes there are some good news. 

Mobile Application is available: https://www.cs-cart....pplication.html




#305745 Multi-Vendor Roadmap

Posted by imac on 23 August 2018 - 07:55 AM in Upcoming Features, Feedback, Feature Requests

We need option for vedor to be able to set thier own delivery options for thier own products and setup thier own promotions. vendor independence is needed to reduce the admin management time! 

We are considering the feature with separate checkout for each vendor. 

If each vendor will have a separate checkout at the storefront than vendors will be able to create their own payment methods, shipping methods and promotions. 




#305743 Try The Advanced Import Of Products

Posted by imac on 23 August 2018 - 07:49 AM in Upcoming features

Hi everyone how can use more than one modifiers in one column?? Because company gives their structure and if want to import must change more than one in one column

Hi,

 

You can extend default import with your add-on. We intentionally allowed only one modifier to make import easier and more transparent. 

 

As for Categories. Unfortunately in order to add categories in XML import we have to spend many resources from development department cause many possible relations should be considered. 

Instead we will make an easy way to manage categories of imported products on the product list.

So the scenario will be 

1. You import products

2. Switch to product list and select Recently updated search.

3. Select the products and apply the required categories to them like this: https://www.evernote...ud6-yloTMETLiM 




#304154 Try The Advanced Import Of Products

Posted by imac on 18 July 2018 - 12:53 PM in Upcoming features

Hi imac and ikoshin 

 

İn which version will you fix and present it?

 

Do you have a plan for correcting other settings?

https://forum.cs-car...ndpost&p=302506

Hi the version in which the bug is fixed can be seen in the right sidebar.

It's 4.8.2. You can already check if everything is working fine at dev.demo.cs-cart.com

 

As for your questions:

1. No plans to add feature to parse categories.

2. The only think I can suggest i using modifiers "replace" or "w_replace", or creating your own modifier by customizing the code.

3. There are special addons for this: like https://marketplace....-optimizer.htmland others.

4. -

5. TBD

6. No such plans, but you can upload import files by FTP and launch import by cron.

7. Thats depend on how it implemented in XML

for example node like 

<pirce currency="US">45</price>

<price currency ="EU">40</price>

will work fine.

8. Unfortunately this will make import process more difficult, so I do not plan any such changes in the nearest future.


Hi,
How can we import qty discounts with the new import, not the depreciated one?

Quantity discount are not supported in the new import process. So only old import process the one that is depricated.




#315621 4.10.1 Rc Is Available—Try The New Version Before The Official Release

Posted by imac on 22 May 2019 - 07:37 AM in News and Announcements

can we choose different address for the billing address?

No, in new checkout this is not possible. Can you please let me know why do you need different address for billing and shipping. What is the real business workflow in your case. And in what country do you sell?

Thank you.




#317254 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 01 July 2019 - 12:01 PM in News and Announcements

CS-Cart team should speed the delivery pace (and this is the most important thing of Agile - the product development methodology - which CS-Cart team is following internally).

Well, this is a complicated thing.

We are ready to release new releases each 2 week (our sprint is 2 week long). But the community is not ready.

We moved to a semver standard so each patch release (when last number is changed) contain only bug fixes. But even though there a log of complains after updates. Updating downloadable software (the software that hosted on your side) should be done carefully, keeping in mind a number of details. We spent a lot of time on making upgrade process smoother, creating backups, send links to email to restore store immediately and so on. And still after all the efforts (and I can assure we still working in this direction) upgrade is a stress for our end-customers. As well as for our 3rd party developers. That's why we decided to release patch versions once a month or two.

 

 

CS-Cart should activate the uservoice forum. They should remind their customers about the uservoice! It should be the only source of new functions based on popularity.

Uservoice has a serious lack - customers vote some general ideas? Like "mobile app", "new checkout", "more payments", "good statistics". This become a real problem. Customer really dissapointed that we did not implemented some of these ideas and we do not listen to them. But when I started to digg into such ideas it turned out that one idea consists of ten other ideas, and different customers meant different things. Just review the posts above, there are lot of different opinions on how checkout should look like.

Forum solve this problem perfectly. When there is something wrong- we immediately can see the result. 




#317256 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 01 July 2019 - 12:12 PM in News and Announcements

I would like to thank everyone for the feedback.

 

CS-Cart community is everyone of your, and I'm sure there is no right or wrong opinion. We all want the same: good product that helps you in business.

 

I will provide screenshots on how billing address in new checkout will look like. Besides we make sure that everything works correctly in old checkout. 

Please note that I do not plan to change look and feel of new checkout. 




#316553 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 14 June 2019 - 01:03 PM in News and Announcements

Why it is a problem to bring back this small radio button?

 

Or let us the old checkout as addon with billing adress?

 

We have old checkout for now. But I won't bring the billing address back just "because". There should be a reason for this.

 

 

In my opinion, the onepage checkout should be optional.

I never saw a good one page checkout.

To many informations in one screen is to confusing and brings a lot of problems for the store e.g shipping methods with shipping rate related to a zip code ( in germany we have isle' with 20 zip codes where we need a higher shipping rate, thats the reason we creat a shipping destination "german isle")

 

The one page checkout must reload after every entry the customer did, which can be change the shipping ratre,  or you must click on shipping method to reload (like now). But is this smoother than the checkout in steps? i dont think so.

 

One page checkput sounds good, but isnt. It is easier for customer to guide him step by step.

That why all big stores in germany uses a step by step checkout.

Step by step checkout is outdated. The easier checkout is - the more conversional it is. Checkout should be as simple as only possible, and besides it should be displayed correctly on any kind of device - PC, Tablet, Mobile. That is how we get our new checkout. 

Old checkout, the one that was up to 4.9.3 is deprecated and will be discontinued in one of the future versions.




#316554 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 14 June 2019 - 01:06 PM in News and Announcements

You could not said it any better, billing address in USA is a must, I sell digital products in one of my stores and I don't need a shipping address but I need a billing address for CC verification and I will not do it without, if this is not going to change I will not upgrade of move on to another solution

Hi, can you please write how do you do this validation of billing address? 

Please write a workflow on how it organised on you side.

 

From what I know, all CC payment processors try to move to 3DS Secure, and it's rare case when some payment requires billing address.




#316555 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 14 June 2019 - 01:08 PM in News and Announcements

I just wanted to add to the request to keep the billing address.  I am just getting started with CS Cart and have spent a lot of money to get up and running so I'm really not happy to read this discussion and fear losing my investment because the cart will no longer do what is required.

 

My store is in the US and for fraud protection we require the billing address be entered and matched to the bank's records.  If it doesn't match then the customer is declined. I have both b2b and b2c customers and both will frequently use a different ship to address.  I think the issue could easily be resolved with a check box that says shipping same as billing or just automatically make the shipping same as billing and if it's not then a check box that will open up for a shipping address. I see that on 98% of the online accounts I create.  As a customer, if I am shipping to a different address than my billing address I am not upset to have to enter two addresses at checkout.  However, if they are the same I like the ease of it just automatically populating the shipping fields.

 

I currently use authorize.net and PayPal for my processors.

Thank you for details, I will go through these payments. 




#316800 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by imac on 19 June 2019 - 01:21 PM in News and Announcements

Are u seious? You dont want understant me.
Cs-cart multiple address profile support entering billing/shipping addresses same database line
Its not usable, all new shopify, yo-cart another multi vendor platforms
Using each address each row line. Anyway also o leave break now, i hope cs team understant me , what i want

I see what you mean.

There two possible problems:

1. Client could have multiple credit cards and probably several billing addresses (not sure if this is the case)

2. Client might change his billing address for some reason (in this case we still should save the billing address in orders table)

 

But I do agree that main scenario should be one billing address (stored in users table) and several shipping address (in case multiple profiles is enabled) that is stored in profiles table.

In case multiple profiles is disabled - one billing and one shipping.
