News from Moltin - February 2018 update
Alongside that, we’ve continued to do some pretty awesome updates to the platform too. Here’s a round up of what we’ve launched in January and February.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the top items so you can dig deeper:
Depreciation of V1 for the inactive user base
The year ahead is an exciting one for Moltin. As we turn the corner, we focus our energies on V2 of our API - and with it, improved speed, concurrency, and a generally more featureful and developer friendly experience. We are excited to have you on this journey with us and look forward to growing with you in 2018. Find out what it means, in this post.
Updated API reference
Hola! Multilingual store functionality is here
You can now cater to a more global audience with the ability to add up to five languages (in addition to your default language) to display product names and descriptions. We hope this helps your business break into new markets and look forward to getting your feedback and extending this feature more later this year.
Launch of Promotions functionality
Our new promotions feature allows you to provide discounts to your customers — either as a percentage or fixed amount off a cart. We hope this functionality can unlock a new sales lever for your sites and we look forward to your feedback on this feature. Look for the addition of promotions to the Dashboard and further extension of this feature in the months ahead.
Improved stock management (inventory) in your store
Don’t miss out on a sale (or worse - frustrate a customer) by not having the stock to fulfill your orders. Learn how you can manage stock directly from our inventory endpoints, via the dashboard, and how to configure “manage stock” on orders to automatically decrement stock with purchases.
Updated dashboard functionality
You can now filter orders, products and add customer addresses all inside the Dashboard. See exactly how this works by watching our YouTube playlist. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Moltin channel too!
Other bug fixes and minor enhancements
You can now GET products and include or not include child products via the query string. Also, updated responses are now more in line with the rest of the API.
We’re always looking for great feedback on features and also problems our community is experiencing. If you’d like to vote on features or request specific ones you can do that easily here on the forum.
If you’ve created a great opensource project with Moltin, we’d love for it to appear on our website. You can submit your work using the form at the bottom of the community page.
If you think you’d like to work with us even closer on features and feedback, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org we’re always looking for outspoken members.
