#127078 CS-Cart Multi-Store Beta is ready for testing

Posted by Webmonkey on 01 December 2011 - 12:37 PM in News and Announcements


Thanks for your reply, I assume RC means release copy? Which is odd as my conversation with you via Help Desk you are saying it wont be released before Feb 2012?

It was worth a try :) It's not a deal breaker - as far as i know no other cart has managed to achieve a properly working shared cart yet.

Have cs-cart decided on whether to implement shared products and categories between stores? - this is something that is important to us.

#106749 Multi-Store

Hi All,

I currently work for a company that has 8 x cs-cart stores, and looks to expand to 20+ . Running 8 stores has cost us a lot of time and admin, in listing products, adjusting shipping, logging in to collect orders, modifying the stores etc.

I understand everyones needs are different but if it helps heres some thoughts on what would be ideal for "my" needs.

Implemenation A.

-One Master Installation on a single domain.
-One Master database to store and share data to all stores.
-Multiple stores to have seperate dedicated domains ie www.greatstuff.blah, www.kitchinsupplies.blah, www.gadgets-master.blah etc
(then configured in the vhost to point at the master domain installation via document root and directory (i'm no linux master if there's a better way of doing this then great)). Maybe the more technical among us could clarify whether having all different stores files and images under a single domain and not it's own domain upsets google results? Currently the above is the Magento way..

- One shopping cart / checkout and customer account to be shared across all domains. For example i can place a set of kitchin knives in my basket from www.kitchinsupplies.co.uk then via tabbed store links on the visual theme, visit www.gadgets-master.co.uk and add a microwave oven to the basket then checkout once buying both items.

- An option to use one ssl by redirecting all https pages to a single domain (whether that be the Master installation or yet another domain?) This may seem odd but if you take the following scenario:
Think Virgin:- virgin media, virgin mobile, virgin airlines etc etc.. A customer buying a virgin mobile phone from www.virginmobiles.blah is not going to get upset if they are directed to another domain www.virgincheckout.blah to pay for the item. This would save us a lot of money on ssls.

-One backend to configure everything! ... stores, products, categories, discounts, shipping tables, etc etc

-As much sharing and assigning of data to selected stores as possible (shipping tariffs, products, promotions, reward points etc).
For example: i set up shipping tariffs based on Country and Weight, i only want to do this once! and therefore an option should be available allowing me to choose which stores to apply these settings too. Another example is that a product maybe suitable for all our stores, i only want to create one instance of this product and not have to create and maintain it for every store.

-Unique store Variables for Custom pages.

If i create an HTML contact page, the only thing that is likely to change between stores is the email address. I would still like to only create and manage one contact page. If there could be a Unique store variable system, similar to the way languages works in cs-cart 1.3.5. Where you could define a variable and a value, but in this instance a value for each store. The variable name could then be put into the html and the appropriate value inserted when compiled to the browser.

- Customer able to select which website to search in (advanced search).

Apologies for the lengthy post! - just trying to contribute :)
