    osCommerce v4 comes with a built-in facility to create new orders (MOTO - mail order / telephone order) and edit existing orders. The process of creating an order and editing an existing order is very similar, and uses the same interface in the back end. To create a new order the operator shall first choose the sale channel (in case of multiple sale channels), and then either choose an existing customer account or create a new one. NOTE: the front end and back end of osCommerce v4 may share payment and shipping methods, but one can have specific backend-only payment and shipping methods. However, if a payment or shipping method is linked to a 3rd party API, that API integration will work as well in the front end as in the back end. Adding products is quite easy to a new order. The operator can search by product model, name, etc. Before product gets added to the order, product price can be edited and quantity of items chosen. Order total modules can be edited too. So it is possible to add any type of discount or surcharge, or use an existing coupon that will apply discount as if it was applied in the front end. One done with creating a new order or editing an existing one, the operator shall press the Update and Pay button. It then offers 3 options: - just save - i.e. just save the order without recording any amount paid, thus not evaluation order status further - mark as paid - i.e. if the order was paid for over the phone or in any other way - send secure payment link - osCommerce will email the payment link to the customer, so that the customer could pay via the website's secure checkout using one of the available payment methods (works really well with 3d secure, for example) In case of a refund being due, it is possible to refund the money to the customer via a compatible payment method, or simply update the order if the refund is being processed outside of osCommerce. osCommerce keep track of amounts paid, and allows to see the amount due or amount owed to the customer.

    osCommerce v4 will support multiple languages and multiple currencies. Currencies are managed in the back end, under Settings / Localization / Currencies Similar to how it was implemented in previous versions of osCommerce, it is possible to add new or manage existing currencies and set: - currency symbol (left and / or right) - decimal and thousand separator - decimal digits - the exchange rate against the default currency Exchange rate can be updated manually or automatically (via Oanda). HOWEVER, in osCommerce v4 there exists a new feature called Marketing Prices! Marketing prices feature, when enabled (disabled by default), allows setting up custom product price in each currency. So, one and the same product can be $9.99, £8.99, and €9.95 not depending on the actual exchange rate! More than that, with Marketing prices comes another wonderful solution called Rounding, something our Swiss customers, for example, will surely appreciate. Rounding allows to set how marketing prices shall be rounded in the chosen currency, or how they should all be transformed. There exists an option to round all prices in the selected currency to 0.05 - meaning that 2.21 CHF will turn into 2.20 CHF and 19.93 CHF - into 19.95 CHF. Also to 0.10, or 0.00. There exists an option to set all decimals in all prices to 0.00, or 0.99, or 0.95.

    The Unit conversion

    Hello Just a little question, Do you include this conversion function (gram, kg, liter, pounds ....) ? And a weight conversion system for example ? In Europe we use the kg by default, in Uk is the pounds, another country can be different.

    The Unit conversion

    For stores selling goods to different countries, this option will be useful. It will be good if this option is associated with the buyer's country, for example, through the tables in the database - coustomers or address_book or address_format, or zones. The client can choose the parameters of weight and dimensions when creating an account or placing an order. There should be an option to change these parameters when completing the checkout. Why? A customer from England can place an order for his beloved girl who lives in France, and the seller's store is located in California.

    Brand is not the same as supplier in v4 Brand is just one per product, like Apple or Nike. But suppliers - oh, there can be virtually any number of them. Each has their own product details, and supplier details of course. Also, each supplier can be charging the merchant in different currency. The system can be given a formula to identify which supplier to orser stock from next, based on priority of price, average delivery turnaround, etc

    The Unit conversion

    Yes it's must be present because just unit shipping weight are not the same in function the country For example in canada, the default unit is Kg but all the people think in pounds Upd, fedex, send in pounds About that, for the shipping, to you take in consideration the product dimension convert in volume. It's used for canadapost, fedex, ups .... Not in France (depend) to calculate the price ? That's why the unit conversion is important.

    Product quantiy discount

    In this example of the back end, we have enabled b2b customer groups and also facility to enter price per each currency. So it looks a bit busy if course a typical shop won't have to have all those tabs.

    Gift vouchers

    Gift Vouchers come pre-built with osCommerce v4. Set possible gift voucher values in the back end: The gift vouchers are available for purchase in the front end at the following URL: /catalog/gift-card and look like this: Once purchased (via normal shopping cart / checkout process for "virtual" products), gift vouchers come to the recipient's email address as unique code that can be redeemed by the user in the front end and used during checkout as a payment method.

    Hello, Little suggestion : You can add a field for the tracking number and status for the customer support or specific files about can be managed across contact (if the customer is connected, we can have inside customer_id and the order_id). And to finish a department to contact. That's an example.

    Currencies and Rounding

    This is a feature we have really looked for in other carts and always been disappointed that it did not exist. One thing for sure that must be made sure of for us, is that there a separate google shopping/facebook catalog or whichever feeds, which account for the price to match exactly as shown on the website.
