CRELoaded Multi Store

The Multi Store modifications help to assign the products and categories to multiple webstores through a single admin panel. There will be the main store admin called super admin who has all priviliges and has moderation over all the sub-stores. The other webstores can see and access the admin according to the previliges assigned to them.

The super admin will assign categories to be displayed on desired store-fronts. The super admin also assign the products in that category to be displayed on desired store-fronts.

In osCommerce Multi Store and CRELoaded Multi Store you cannot share the shopping cart within sub-stores.
But for Magento we have developed a module called “share cart module for Magento Multi Store”. With the help of this module, the shopping cart will be shared within sub-stores.

Multistore allows you to create multiple installations of osCommerce with all installations sharing the same database! You create stores in the admin side and assign the various aspects of osCommerce to the specific stores you want.
It accomplishes this task by creating a configuration table for each created store. This modification allows for all the different stores to have their own unique configurations (shipping modules, payment modules, minimum/maximum values, etc.).
Therefore, each store is independent of the other with regards to the store product catalog, categories, specials, manufacturers, and other configuration data.
Features :

  • One centralized superadmin control
  • One database manage for all stores
  • Create Multiple stores by superadmin
  • Manage permissions of store admins
  • Customer groups and Group pricing
  • Manage products distributors
