Hi hinger,

Amazon UK is supported in CS-Cart since v4.0.3.
Please note that Amazon requires UK account (https://payments.amazon.co.uk/home) in order to accept payments in GBP.

Will the version include the ability to upgrade without making changes to custom skins?

If not I can't think of anything more important...

Version 4.9.2

Traveler, in v4.2.1 the upgrade process will be the same as in earlier versions. So you will be able to upgrade from existing v4.1.5 installation to a v4.2.1 with a regular upgrade.

Spasibo for your post but you are not answering my question.

1) If you read my post carefully you would see that I am at 2.24 so your comment about 4.1.5 is not helpful.

2) I am asking a very specific question which you are not clearly answering.

For example will skin changes no longer involve core changes? So when you don't make any changes to the store functionality (only design) you will have no problems with upgrading going forward.

I ask because I have no interest in upgrading until this is so. I can't afford time and money to upgrade when my skin will need to be fixed. Note I am not talking about modifications to functionality - as I understand that can be a complex issue.

I look forward to your answer.

Version 4.9.2

Only products have microdata tags, as customers usually look for a products.

Dear imac,
Thank you for the link to the demo and your reply. It is exciting that CS-Cart is adding microdata in 4.2.
I'm not sure I completely understand your reply. Could you please elaborate?
Because microdata tags are for search engines to better show our websites and also to show more details to potential customers in search results. Its more for search engines to understand the content of pages so our websites can have better visibility and ranking. The reasons for microdata tags are:
  • visibility of specific details in search results (breadcrumb, rating, number of reviews, product-name, price, special offers, image, video, description, features, options, in stock, shipping time, brand, etc.). Example: http://cdn2.hubspot....t=1404245965577
  • better ranking in search engines like Google.
  • location listed in google, nearby stores listed in google results and placements in Google maps (for business location) Example: http://www.360i.com/...sing-schema-org
  • Appearing and ranking in Google shopping, pricegrabbers and other shopping search engines. Example ,
  • placement in Google's sidebar results.Example: http://aha.elliance..../micro-data.jpg
  • placement in various product review websites
So microdata tags have a lot of benefits if its implemented fully. It can increase the sales of CS-Cart websites.

Where can I find examples of implemented microdata? In the HTML of the demo I dont see any implementation of property, itemprop or typeof.
What microdata format is CS-Cart using?
Could you please explain more about how and where CS-Cart is using microdata?

Which things have rich snippets? Only product? or also things like breadcrumb, rating, number of reviews, price, special offers, image, video, description, features, options, in stock, shipping time, brand, store location, etc.

This information would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

OK, it is clear now.

Version 4.2.1 has the same upgrade routine as the previous versions do.

We discussed the problem you are talking about very carefully but decided not to change the upgrade process in versions 4.2.x. The point is that these changes will affect other features or processes, for example, there is no need in var/themes/repository anymore. So in order to do it right (including backward compatibility of the add-ons), we decided to postpone it till v4.3.x

So to make long story short, we are planning to change the upgrade behavior in the next major release. After these changes are made, modified templates should not be overwritten during the upgrade process. In fact, all your changes will be stored in a separate folder which will not be affected by the upgrade script.

Username, that may be a nice thing but not for a responsive skin. Besides I think that click on a thumbnail is more user-friendly behavior.

We are using 4.1.5 which is very good and we are all setup and ready to use Amazon UK however in our admin backend it states,

"Note: Amazon Checkout integration is currently available for US-based merchants only."
