March 9th, 2011 4 comments

Magento Commerce

Magento Commerce is one of the biggest and best ecommerce platforms out there right now. It currently empowers more than 90000 online stores around the world. Armed with everything you need to manage and successfully run an online store, Magento now boasts these amazing numbers:

  • 25+ Billion in transactions

  • 90000+ Merchants

  • 3500+ extensions/plugins

  • 2.5 Million Downloads

  •  

    Latest Upgrade – Magento Commerce 1.5

    We just upgraded our stores with Magento Commerce 1.5 and wanted to share the new features that were introduced in the latest update.

      Easy to Upgrade – Preserve Customisations

    The latest update basically doesn’t change the framework and schema of the store a lot which means that upgrading to the new version will not be difficult for your existing stores. The templates, skin and customisation should not break with the new version.

Magento Commerce New Features

New and Improved Import and Export Functionality

System > Import/Export now has the ability to pick Import or Export and export.

Magento Commerce 1.5 new features - Import / Export

You can then pick what data to export (Products / Customers) and what attributes to filter the data with.

Order Status Management – Modify Order Status and assign state

The Order data is now stored in the database and not XML files which means that you can now modify Order State and Status directly through Magento admin

via System >  Order Statuses

Magento Commerce new Features - Order Statuses

Order Status Management – Change Order Address

You can also modify an order address after an order. You can change the Billing Address as well as the Shipping Address using the edit buttons next to the order.

After changing an order address you get a message
“Changing address information will not recalculate shipping, tax or other order amount.”

New Magento Connect Manager 2

The 1.5 Magento Commerce comes with a new Magento Connect Manager Upgrade. The new version is 2.0 of the Magento Connect Manager.

Enable maintenance mode when installing or upgrading the platform:

This will show a “the site is not available right now due to maintenance/upgrade message”

Direct package file upload

The new direct package installation means that you can build your own packages and install them without the extension key.

DzineStore - DIY Shopping Cart - DIY Online Store

It is exciting times at dzineLabs, we are about to launch Version 2 of dzineStore. The DIY Store that allows you to have your store up and ready in minutes and start accepting orders.

DIY Online Store – DzineStore – Updates

Here is the summary of new features coming out

 

Multiple Images for your products

One feature that all of our clients wanted was multiple images against products. With the new release, you will be able to add new images to your product and have multiple images of the product. You can also choose your featured product and have the other images show up next to your main product.

 

View and Manage your Orders through the Control Panel

Previously you would have to check your email to see what had been ordered. We have now made it easier for you by allowing you to see your orders via your control panel. Not only can you see your orders, you can mark if they have been shipped or not.

 

User Email Address

We are now allowing you ask for a customers email address before they start the checkout process.

 

Better Online Store Themes and Store Customisation

We will be allowing you to use more themes and customise the look and feel of your online store even more.  With the introduction of themes, you can not only give the store your look and feel but you can then tweak that theme to fit your exact needs.

 

Email Marketing Options

The store already has integration with Campaign Monitor but now you will be able to also send out quick updates to your customers using the Control Panel.

 

Better Social Media – Online Store integrations

We will be integrating Facebook and Twitter even more in the new iteration of the store allowing your customers to tell their friends how good your product is and how happy they are to buy it.

 

Facebook Fan Page Integration

We will be integrating the like box for your Facebook Fan Page. So that your customers who might not be ready to buy from you straight away can like your store and then come back at a later stage or when you send them updates via Facebook.

 

YouTube Video Integration

We all know how video helps you sell more, but we rarely put this to practice. Well you won’t have an excuse anymore once we have integrated YouTube videos with your products.

 

Release Dates and Pricing

The expected release date for the new version is mid February. Please subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of this new release. Of course if you sign up with the existing version of dzineStore, you will be automatically upgraded to the new version when it is out.

2 new online stores going live this week

Based on the new version, there will be two more online stores going live this week. Right in time for christmas. One of the stores only started a few days ago, which means we had to do some improvements on the framework to allow for speedier uploads and set ups.

 

New Customisations

The platform now allows multiple customizations. Not only can you use your own colours and look and feel, but the new framework allows a whole css file to be uploaded giving you more control on the positioning of the elements.

 

Front Page Sliders for Promotions

The Front Page Promotions has been upgraded so that you can choose between a flash one or a javascript one. Both of them have their advantages and disadvantages.

 

iPhone and Android Compatible – Mobile Commerce

The store looks good on both the iPhone and the Android browsers. A customer can also buy products using the mobile.

 

Quick to Set Up

The store is even quicker to set up. If you have the product images and a paypal account handy, it will be a matter of minutes before a customer can buy your products online.

More information coming soon. Stay tuned.
