Integrating Cs Cart With Facebook Store Product Catalog (Pixel + Microformats)

18 November 2018 - 09:10 PM


It's very useful to integrate your cs cart shop with FB Shop as it allows to tag products on FB and Instagram and link back to the store (this is the only way to link instagram photos to the store, btw).


It requires manual product entry, manual feed file upload or automatic integration via FB Pixel and proper metadata (eg. OpenGraph tags or Schema.org - https://www.facebook...ref=faq_content).


The last is the only fully automatic one.


Is there any extension that would do both these things (integrate pixel and add appropriate metadata)? I know that there are some separate extensions, but it would be great to have single extenstion that would also make sure that all the specific metadata fields required for facebook are being generated. 


I've noticed some of them do not generate all the required fields, eg for schema.org all the below are required:


  • name: The title of the item.
  • brand: The brand name of the item.
  • description: A description of the item.
  • productID: The retailer's ID for the item.
  • url: The complete URL for the product page.
  • image: A link to the image used on the product page.
  • price: The current price of the item. Don't include symbols like “$” in the price. Include this entry under “offers”.
  • priceCurrency: The currency for the price, in ISO format (for example, USD). Include this entry under “offers”.
  • availability: The current availability of the item. You can choose 'in stock', 'out of stock', 'preorder', 'available for order', or 'discontinued'. Include this entry under “offers”.
  • condition: The current condition of the item. You can choose 'new', 'refurbished', or 'used'. Include this entry under “offers”.



Register Guests In A Last Step Of A Checkout

21 May 2018 - 02:38 PM

Hi all,


There's a lot of problems with the current CS Cart checkout from a UX point of view. Hopefully they will  be addressed in the upcoming checkout revamp. Meanwhile we'd like to solve the most burning problems one by one.


The main is definitely cognitive overload at the beginning of the checkout. One great way to simplify the number of choices would be to assume that if user is not logged in, they will always start in a guest mode and only at the end will be offered to set up an account. 
It would provide 2 benefits: simplify the first step and increase chances of registration - user is more likely to create an account when they already provided other information.


Currently the only solution that I can see is the 'auto guest registration' plugin that sends an email with a autogenerated password at the end of the checkout. However this is a very bad practice from a security point of view.

Is there any way to ask a guest user to provide a password at the end of a checkout process?


Go Directly To Checkout Step 2 As A Guest With Possibility To Go Back To Step 1?

14 May 2018 - 03:23 PM

Hi there,


Current layout of the first checkout step is rather horrible - there are multiple fields and 2 CTAs at the same time, it's a no-go from a UX / conversion point of view.

Ideally we should guide not logged in users directly to step 2 as a guest and allow them to go back to step 1 - is it possible at all? The only option I've found is to hide step 1 completely, but it's a one step too far.



Show Products Discounted By Promotions Together With Products On Sales

09 May 2018 - 01:25 PM

Currently "products on sale" page only shows products for which the 'list price' was filled, but it ignored discounts applied via 'promotions' module.

Is there any way to list both types of discounted products on a single page?



Prevent Vendors From Assigning Some Categories

02 May 2018 - 05:24 PM



Is there any way to limit the number of categories which vendors can assign to products? The only way to achieve it was through 'vendor plans' plugin, but it also limits admins from adding these categories, which is very inconvenient (admins add limited categories like various selections to curated products, vendors shouldn't be able to do this).

Any ideas?
