Other New Features in ProStores Version 10.2 ProStores
- Enhanced use of promotion codes when using PayPal Express Checkout – this will allow for a streamlined use of coupons in the checkout process making it more appealing to customers and likely increasing conversions for the merchant.
- Two Enhancements to the ProStores Page Builder tool:
- Introduction of an image panel which will allow a merchant to add static images to a layout. This means that a merchant can now add more visual elements their customer’s would find engaging or share promotional material using images.
- Streamlined ability to update advertising schedules from within their page builder tool making it easier to make changes without switching between screens.
- View product count: This one is simple, but a nice enhancement. This gives you the ability to see how many total products in your merchant catalog as well as how many of those products are active.
- Hide a category option – This may be our favorite addition because it provides a merchant the option to hide a category from display on your storefront. We have been asking for a tool like this for a while and it’s great to see it has been added. There are many uses of this feature including when creating special promotions.
There are also a handful of other new enhancements that help a merchant manage their ProStores web store more efficiently and improve the ability to create different store versions.
