Definitions and Manuals

I am learning to use CS Cart for a client in order to do some product work for her. I have a couple of requests (and questions) that I need answers to as soon as possible as we are on a tight schedule if anyone can help…

Global Options

Are there definitions of the terms used anywhere? Things like “variant” and “modifier”, that I know the definitions of but not their use in the program. For example, what data should be in those fields like product color, etc. What are the usable data options available? Is there a list?

If there isn’t a list of usable data I think there should be. Maybe a drop-down list.

Instruction Manual

Is there a printable manual available or one that can be purchased? There is definitely a need for one.

Any help you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated. She is a new client and I am taking on the task that she had previously assigned to someone who is no longer with the company. Thank you!

All your “basic” questions can be answered either through the forums, the knowledge base or the documentation available in your download area.

see this thread:

Three Places to start before you post here asking

Actually Mike, I saw no information about Global Options or Product Options at the knowledgebase.

The manual can be found at the file area in the helpdesk:


must be that glitch in the forum again Matt


the thread is your post in another thread that handily points out the three places for “knowledge”
