We have completely redesigned the previous theme and added many new essential features for enterprise and business solutions.

Here is a preview of what the new B2B theme looks like https://demo.virtocommerce.com/B2B-store/

B2B theme updates

These are main changes in the B2B theme we have implemented with the latest update:

• New sign up a process that allows registering as an organization or personal customer.

• New product search options allow filtering based on availability in specified fulfillment centers.

• New cart view and one-page checkout now feature pickup delivery method and display expected arrival date or product availability in selected fulfillment centers.

• New product details view options can show multiple product variations, which facilitates and improves the selecting and buying process.

• New customer cabinet is designed to cover all basic requirements for an organization or customer management such as:

  • manage organization members and their roles
  • invite new members of the organization
  • edit company information and address
  • view all employee data, such as orders or personal lists
  • manage preferences and checkout defaults
  • create and use unlimited named lists for favorited and planned purchases

• The theme is built on the CSS framework Bootstrap 3.0 and has an adaptive markup that allows it to work on mobile devices with small resolutions.

Storefront updates

The Storefront has been revamped quite significantly as well. We have added many new amazing features for enterprise and business solutions.

Here is the list of the most important Storefront changes:

• We added permission-based authorization to our storefront that allows users to check permissions and roles defined in the platform.

[Authorize(SecurityConstants.Permissions.CanEditUsers)]

• Reworked API for working with lists

• Completely reworked authentication/authorization system to work independently from the Core module API. This allows using custom security settings (password strong, or lockout policy) independently of the platform settings.
