While storeBlox CS has unrivaled support for the complex product configurations that company stores often need – such as apparel colors and sizes – sometimes you need to set up a very simple product; say, a mug with one color and no options. We’ve made that much easier with simplified product configuration.
Instead of requiring the configuration of a single color, now when you create a product, we create a default configuration for you, eliminating an entire step in the process on simple products. That mug that took you two minutes to set up will now only take one. It’s a subtle improvement, to be sure, but one that we think will make a big difference in the time required to set up products in your company store.
Simple product configuration is now available on all stores. It’s backward-compatible with existing products, so you don’t have to make any changes to your current products to support it. Existing products with single configurations will remain that way, and new products with single configurations will have that configuration created automatically for you when you initially build the product – you never need to touch the Configurations tab for those products again.
Now, logged-in visitors can monitor the balances on multiple budgets in a simple, persistent widget available in the lefthand navigation bar on your company store. In addition, if your store has a points-based payment system enabled, customers may also view their points balance at any time. Every store-based payment method is now available at a glance. This feature is available in every Pro-level store – just enable it in webBlox.
We’ve now given you complete control over the content and formatting of all the emails generated by your company store. Our new Email Notification system allows complete customization of every email – total control over WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) HTML and variables. If you need to customize messaging, formatting or content, it’s all available now in the webBlox store management system, for every type of message:
- Approval notification
- Approval Request
- Customer confirmation
- Order notification
- Rejection notification
- Shipment Notification
- Update notification
To simplify things further, we provide a contextual reference for every available variable in a given email template, right underneath the editor for your reference:
As always, we provide a default template for notifications, so if you don’t want to mess with this, you don’t have to. But if you need to insert custom information, branding, or re-arrange or repeat elements in your email, you’ve got all the tools you need to manage formatting and content. As always, if you need assistance, don’t hesitate to check out the video tutorials available over at the storeBlox CS Video Training Center, or contact us with your questions.
