Commerce Manager localization

Commerce Platform and all the Commerce modules were fully localized. All the translation resources are public and available in a dedicated git repository. Check the localization guide for more information on managing the translations and localizing Commerce Manager to new languages. In case of your own module, study the guide on localization implementation.

More functional lists

  • column pinning
  • sorting (even by multiple columns)
  • pagination (on client or server side)

Furthermore, all your customizations are automatically and seamlessly saved in the browser (using Web Storage).

Catalog database structure optimization

The underlying (database) data structure was optimized for Catalog module. This change had no functional changes in UI, but the overall performance was improved (especially when dealing with large amounts of data).

New payment gateways

Support for 2 more — CyberSource and DIBS Account — payment gateways was added.

Accept card and alternate payments across all sales channels — mobile, web, point-of-sale, and call center — domestically and across the world using just one connection.
