nopCommerce, a free open source ASP.NET MVC based eCommerce platform, has recently released its 3.90 version. The latest version contains significant improvements in performance optimization, in marketing and content management functionality, and in the admin area UI and UX.
Many ideas for the product improvement are coming from nopCommerce community, and it’s really great to see support from the partners and nopCommerce developers from all over the world.
Some of the 3.90 version highlights are explained below.
Compliance with PCI DSS 3.2 requirements
In order to fit PCI DSS 3.2, the following policies must be followed:
All of these options are integrated in nopCommerce and are fully configurable.
Extended discount functionality
In the 3.90 version, many marketing and content management features were improved.
One of the new enhancements is the discount requirement groups. These groups support complex requirements with multiple rules. The requirements are set using boolean logic. For instance, if a discount should be assigned to a particular customer role or in case a customer had spent certain amount, etc.
Product stock changes tracking
In previous versions of nopCommerce, it was possible to check product stock quantity only on the main product info page, and stock changes could be tracked only by viewing each order containing this product. It was not really convenient, so a dedicated Stock quantity history tab was created. Now a store owner can find all the required information on product stock quantity, its changes, and orders with the product at one place.
For products that are out of stock store owners will now be able to display an approximate number of days in which the product will be available again, instead of general “out of stock” message used in the previous versions.
Reward points usage delay
The new version eliminates the necessity of reward points activation immediately after they were calculated. A store owner can set up a period after which the earned points become active.
The speed of loading user agents was increased and memory usage was reduced, so now sites require much less memory. In 3.90 version, cache discounts between requests. Previously all discounts were loaded for each HTTP request.
