Store 2.0.0

Released September 9, 2013

Store 2 is a major update. If you are updating from a previous version of Store, please make sure to also read the Store 2.0 Upgrade Notes.

Major Changes

  • PHP 5.3 and ExpressionEngine 2.6 are now minimum requirements for Store.
  • Complete rewrite of code base, in order to be more stable and easier to extend. Most third-party extensions and SQL queries will not automatically support Store 2 and will need to be revised. Front end templates should remain compatible.
  • Rewrote payment library to be more flexible and powerful. Payment processing is now powered by Omnipay.
  • Refactored add to cart and checkout forms to post to the same action, so that developers are able to update the cart and add items at the same time (for example, when up-selling extra items during checkout).
  • Rewrote shipping plugin system. Shipping plugins are now separate from the Store core, and use the standard ExpressionEngine extension mechanism.

New Features

  • Added the ability for shipping plugins to return multiple rates (for example, only return rates which are applicable to the current destination).
  • Added support for separate first_name and last_name variables. name is still available to access the customer's full name if desired, and both methods will continue to be supported.
  • Added the ability to have multiple email templates linked to a single order status.
  • Added the ability to specify a custom "to" address for email templates (for example, to send a different email to the administrator when an order is placed).
  • Added the ability for prices to be entered as tax-inclusive in the control panel.
  • Added the ability to have more than one tax per order, and to specify taxes which apply to specific product categories. Removed the "tax-exempt" product option in favor of the new category-based taxes.
  • Added new Sale functionality which can specify pricing for specific products or entire categories. Sales are applied globally and are displayed on the product page. Removed old sale start/end dates from the publish page in favor of the new global sales.
  • Renamed Promo Codes to Discounts. Discounts are applied at checkout and can optionally require the customer to enter a promotional code.
  • Added support for restricting discounts to specific product categories.
  • Added support for quantity based discounts (buy X get 10% discount).
  • Added support for buy X get Y free discounts.
  • Added support for limiting discounts to products not already on sale.
  • Added the ability to enable "custom prices" on a per-channel basis. This allows you to use a user-submitted price in the add to cart form (for example with donations).
  • Added order "adjustments" which track discounts, shipping, and taxes applied to orders during checkout.

Miscellaneous

  • Improved security using the ExpressionEngine encryption class
  • Renamed address3 variables to city, and region variables to state. The old variables will continue to work, but their use is deprecated.
