Meet CS-Cart 4.11.1 with Warehouses and Other Improvements

Hello!

We have released CS-Cart 4.11.1. Here is the full list of changes; this article will cover the most important of them. There are also changes specific to Multi-Vendor, which we cover in a different article.

Warehouses: Separate Inventory Tracking for Different Locations

Previously, a product had only one field for quantity. But things aren’t as simple in business. There may be multiple physical shops, and not all of them have the product in stock. A supplier might have the product, but it will take some extra time to get it to the store or ship it.

The new Warehouses [Beta] add-on in CS-Cart Ultimate and Multi-Vendor Ultimate informs customers about such things. Here is what the add-on can do:

You’ll be able to turn pickup points from the Stores and pickup points add-on (introduced in 4.10.1) into Stores and Warehouses.

Every product editing page gets the Quantity tab, with a different quantity for each store and warehouse. You can also update quantities at stores and warehouses via export and import.

The documentation has more information about warehouses and how they work.

Improvements for Admins

Improvements for Customers

Now the customer will be offered to sign in instead. There’ll be no need to remember the password: if the customer presses a button, one-time code for signing in will be sent to his or her email address.

The upgrades to version 4.11.1 are already available. As usual, for the first few days after the release we hand out upgrade packages in limited numbers, but then we lift that restriction. So if you don’t see this upgrade in your Upgrade Center yet, please try again later.
