Hello, integrating live shipping rates (Fedex, UPS, etc) during checkout would be my biggest ask

Hi
May I ask about multiple currencies? I havent found any info about this, but I can’t use EasyStore without being able to use multiple currencies or currency per language.

Thank you

At present, EasyStore allows for the configuration of a singular currency throughout the platform. We might take multiple currencies into consideration in the future. Thank you for your understanding.

If possible, Canada Post would be great for a shipping option. Also, if tax rules could follow something like how Opencart does it that would be better for Canadian stores ... in many provinces there are two separate taxes (PST, GST), but only one of those two taxes is applied to shipping rates (GST).

We will introduce product-wise tax soon, hopefully. Thanks for sharing your concern.

This is very promising and I like it already but I installed the template that comes with the extension and had to go back to what I already had. resons:
I am a fine artist "Painter" and I want to sell paints from myself and other artists, I need to include artist name, nationality, and bios. I also need to include specifications of the art work like size, medium, year, and others.

So far I could not fine an easy way to accomplish that.

I also work on a liquor store site which I need to add many other details.

Keep working, this is going to be good.

Thanks for your thoughtful suggestion. For now, you can use the Additional Information field to put all the additional information about the products. Isn't it working for you?

Nice Updates, please do not forget to add the Guest Checkout & Shipping Carrier Options to the quickstart templates of Allura.

Another recommended option for future EasyStore releases would be having a reusable 'Options' area for products ... something like 'Size' or 'Color' that only needs to be created once, and is then easily applied to a product (similar to what OpenCart does) ... very handy feature for large volume stores.

Thanks for your suggestion. We will think about it for future updates. Can be handy for sure, no doubt about that.

SPPB integration is cool, however pretty limited, isn’t it?!
As far as I understood, the pagebuilder design is limited to 1 products list and 1 single product layout… sorry, but I think this is a real show-stopper and surprising restriction.
A shop might consist of total different products or even services. Those might need a total different appearance and style. I did expect to create different layouts and designs based on a category, or maybe a certain shop menuitem.
PS: Really would like to hear other users and their opinion on this matter.
