Meet CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.12.2 with Bug Fixes and Usability Improvements


We have released CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.12.2. It is a patch release, so it includes bug fixes and small improvements. The full list of changes is in the documentation, so we’ll only cover the most important changes here.

Changes to Multi-Vendor

When vendors get money directly from their customers via the “Direct customer-to-vendor payments” add-on, they use their own payment methods in your store. Starting with version 4.12.2, vendors can assign their own payment methods to shipping methods of your marketplace.

Now it is called “Products without a category”. It is hidden by default, and you can change its name. If you have products without a category, you will get a reminder to assign categories for them. That is how you can be sure that customers will find the products they need.

If a vendor imports products with a category that does not exist in your marketplace, those products will be updated, but their category won’t be changed. New products with a non-existent category will go to “Products without a category”. If products with a new category are imported by a marketplace administrator, the new category will be created in the marketplace automatically.

Common Changes

In 4.12.2, we fixed the logic of working with carts. Now, if you are signed in on different devices at the same time, the information in your cart will remain up-to-date.

There are more changes that appear in version 4.12.2. For the full list, check the changelog in our documentation.


The upgrades to version 4.12.2 are already available. As usual, for the first couple of weeks 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.
