    Currencies and Rounding

    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.
  3. osCommerce v4 is coming with support for Multiple Design Templates and built in Template Builder. Template management doesn't require any PHP coding, and is done via the back end of the website. It is possible to create, import, and export multiple design templates. This opens ways for professional designers and developers to offer their osCommerce templates for sale in the future App Marketplace - announcements to follow. Design templates are managed and modified via the back end of osCommerce, using a special built in Designer. It is possible to edit template settings in several ways (visual editor and CSS editor). It is possible to add, move, and delete various widgets from any page of the osCommerce website. Additionally, all documents (invoices, packing slips, emails) can be edited if required. It is also possible to create copies of the existing pages. For example, there can be 2 or more product pages, and different products can be assigned different designs of the product page. Support for Responsive design is implemented, as well as an additional optional Mobile view for each template. The system allows both professional designers and end users (i.e. shop owners) change the look and feel of the osCommerce online store without going deep into the code or even without HTML knowledge. Of course designers and developers are able to modify widgets or create new widgets to extend functionality of osCommerce v4 Have any comments or questions? - please feel free to post them here.

    Payment methods

    osCommerce v4 will come with a number of payment methods. It is being debated now which ones will be included into the "box" installation and which ones will be moved to be apps (free or paid), so the list below is to be confirmed. Payment methods split in two major groups - online and offline. Each sale channel (front end or virtual) may have a number of specific payment methods assigned to it; one and the same payment method can be assigned to more than one sale channel, and in that case the settings of such payment method can be made completely different for different sales channels. Payment methods (same as shipping methods) can be present in the system but be not installed, or activated, or linked to a particular country or region. In that case they will appear in the back end (corresponding filters to be set) but not in the front end. Payment methods can be also linked to particular customer groups only. Payment methods can be made available to particular parts of the system. So there could be payment methods only available to wholesale clients, or only to back end users for example. Offline payment methods are currently as follows: COD (Cash on Delivery) COD for POS Credit Card for POS Cash Collect Purchase Order (likely to be used by customers paying on account) Offline payments (general offline payment method) It is possible to easily extend this list and add more offline payment methods, they mostly act as placeholders and are mostly used to record the fact of payment and then run analytics on what methods customers used to pay. Online payment methods are currently as follows (in no particular order): SecurePay BrainTree Authorize.net PayPal (various implementations, including Express checkout) Klarna checkout (likely + online finance!, to be confirmed) Poli WorldPay SagePay Recurly (to be confirmed) SecPay Pay by Amazon (to be confirmed) MultiSafePay Layby Humm by FlexiFi (online finance!) Global Payments (former Realex) LiqPay OxiPay It is very likely that some of the above modules will be moved to a new category Online Finance before the release of osCommerce v4 UPDATE: Stripe is also available as a payment module!, thanks @14steve14 for pointing this out!

    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.

    Menu Editor

    Menu is a totally new concept in osCommerce v4 that comes built in and "out of the box". Instead of website menu being effectively a copy of the category tree in previous versions of osCommerce, in version 4 we have created a totally separate entity for menus, which can be embedded into any part of any page. And so, Menus are managed from a special section of the back end: You can switch between different menus existing in the system or create a new one. It is possible to export and import menus, to move them between websites. A menu is a list of a tree of choices. Each menu item can have its own name, link (if not predefined link to one of the website's pages), and style class: So, it is possible to rename categories as they get added to the menu, or even have the same category more than once in the menu. Besides categories and brands, It is also possible to add links to website's pages (like Shopping cart, Contact, etc), to the content pages (like About, Privacy policy, etc), or to a completely random URL (custom link).

    Order Structure (totals) modules

    It is possible to configure, enable and disable multiple modules that together constitute Orders in osCommerce v4. There exists a special Order Structure menu under Modules, which to a degree extends what used to be Order Totals in previous versions of osCommerce. As with all the modules, we have made it possible for osCommerce developers to create an add their own Order structure modules. Currently existing modules are as follows: Their position (which can be re-arranged by using the drag-and-drop feature) defines how the system uses them for every order. Each order total module has a number of settings, including restrictions and positioning: It is possible to set, for example, the shipping fee, to include tax on the checkout pages, but exclude tax on the invoices.

    Shipping methods

    Same as the Payment methods, Shipping methods in osCommerce v4 can be linked to: - a particular sales channel (website) - customer group - country or region and be available for the front end (checkout or quotation), back end, and POS. Shipping methods can be also linked with one or more tracking methods (to be described further). Same as the payment methods, Shipping methods can be installed, enabled or disabled. There exist a number of "offline" shipping methods, where prices are set manually in the back end. And a number of "online" shipping methods, which provide integration with the corresponding shipping provider's API. It is very likely that "online" shipping methods will find their way to a special section of the back end when osCommerce v4 is released. It is also likely that such "online" shipping methods will be made available through the marketplace, either for free or for a nominal fee (in the latter case it will be surely less than their analogues from WooCommerce, etc). And of course osCommerce developers will be very welcome to create new solutions and list them as apps too. One interesting new solution is Click and Collect shipping. It is possible to set Click and Collect locations in the settings of osCommerce v4, and then allow customers to choose Click and Collect as a shipping option on checkout. Here is the list of currently present "online" shipping modules, in no particular order: - FedEx - DHL - UPS - USPS - TNT express - NovaPoshta Another interesting new solution is a so called Zone Table method: - it allows for setting up various shipping zones, by country, by region of the country, or even a range of post/zip codes - it allows for setting up various shipping methods and naming them accordingly - and finally, it links zones and shipping methods together, allowing setting up delivery costs by order price, weight, volume, dimensions, etc

    Order Editor

    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.

    Loyalty or Bonus points

    Loyalty (or bonus) points program can help merchants encourage their customers to place repeat orders. osCommerce v4 is coming with Loyalty points program feature (likely to be an add-on). Every product can have two points values - the amount it "costs" in points, and the amount it can give the customer if the customer buys it. Value of points the customer can gain by buying this or that product can be displayed on product info pages and product listings too. During the Checkout, existing customers can see their balance in points and choose to redeem certain amount of points, using loyalty points as a payment method. Points can be checked, and edited in the back end for each customer. Further developments may include some more advanced promotional mechanisms that will involve loyalty points.

    Shipping Labels

    osCommerce v4 allows the order processing team to choose a shipping carrier to actually deliver the orders, and have PDF labels created on the shipping carrier's side and downloaded via a special API to be printed on the label printer. Current integrations include: - DHL - FedEx - Royal Mail - Nova Poshta - APC (the list is subject to change) Each integration is API based, so the store shall have an API account with their shipping carrier of choice to use this feature. Besides the label itself, the system downloads the consignment / tracking number which gets saved in order details. To choose a shipping carrier, there exists an instrument called "Shipping Carrier Rules". It automatically chooses the shipping carrier for orders depending on the delivery country or delivery zone, package total (package here can be less or equal to the order), package weight, shipping fees paid by the customer, payment and shipping methods chosen by the customer.
