New Features

  • With Year/Make/Model enabled, the catalog page will now prompt for Sub Model by default.
  • We added a setting to only show the active category and its sub-categories in the category tree. If no category is selected, all categories will be displayed.

You can make price adjustments when editing a category, brand, or product under the Data tab.
  • You can also bulk adjust prices for several products at once. From the Products > View page, select the products you want to adjust, then click the green "$" button in the top right corner. Set your price adjustment for the selected products, then click "Save changes."

  • Customers can apply coupon codes during the checkout process. Before, coupon codes could only be applied on the cart page.
