Actually, the discounts were supposed to help with the reduction of the VAT in Germany, but then this became a more hard piece of work. Now, discounts on item basis (or on product group basis in PCG) are taken into account as well as individual discounts for customers who enter the shop via discount groups. Previously, the discounts were only calculated and displayed correctly after a “passage” through the merchandise management system, now this works directly in the shop.
This sometimes results in an implicit increase of the minimum order value, e.g. in the case of high employee discounts. This can be corrected customer-specific – or by address.
Discounts already added in the PCG are of course still taken into account. In general, the highest discount will be applied to each item. Discount items can now also always be changed – if not explicitly blocked in the merchandise management.
Changes in the search feature
Search terms that suggest that the customer is looking for regional products, now show these directly, or even just a button “Regional products”. You may even find discounts and other shop features using the search field.
Supporting Tour Models
Already with the depot feature, the reconstruction of the shop to support any number of addresses and tours per customer was started (up to now max. 5). Now this work is completed as well. This means that customers with many departments, kindergartens or schools, but also with many delivery options (i.e. depots or branches) can be better supported. Depending on your settings, you can now offer more or less flexibility, e.g. you can only display the possible addresses and not make them selectable.
The selection of one of several tours (delivery options) on the same day has been simplified – this can now be done directly in the shopping cart.
Build-In Content Management
The built-in small content management finally got a file upload. In addition, external pages can now be stored more easily, so that they can be found in the search function.
