New updates and improvements to North Commerce

August 27th 2021

Email HTML/CSS Editor

We are working toward finishing up email notifications. SMS notifications will come later. We will be integrating with Twilio and you will provide your own Twilio SIDs for that integration if that is something you hope to offer to your customers. But for emails you can create your very own templates. We will have default notification templates that you can use immediately out of the box or you can create your own. 

A few things to keep in mind when creating email templates for all of your notifications:

1. All styles need to be inline. This is just the nature of emails and compatiability

2. You can add any custom field you’d like to these emails. Please keep in mind that when you are wanting to add an overview of a customers orders with all the line items the you will just need to create one section with one product and that section will be duplicated for each line item

3. Adding and editing custom fields will be as easy as typing a / and then selecting what you are looking for from the drop down menu.

Email & SMS Notifications

One of the things that every store should be doing for their customers after they purchase a product is sending an email or SMS confirmation that their order has been completed. Each of these email & sms notifications can be fully customized.

You can use any email builder you are familar with, like Stripo, Unlayer or even create one yourself. Copy and paste the html and css inside of the email template editing area and save it. You will be able to easily add any dynamic content too; for example you want to add the first and last name of a customer, the products they purchased and their VAT number. You will be able to easily add those fields anywhere in the email.

Currently we have just created the notification class that manages the state of notifications. So right now you are able to preview what type of emails will be available not how the email template editing area will work (yet).

Order review screen

Order review screen is (basically done). There are something we can’t finish up until we work on some order/checkout stuff but you can still get a basic idea of what it looks like and how things will function.  In order to view this screen right now you will need to go to the Orders screen and then click on one of the order numbers.

Bulk actions

I’m starting to get worse and worse when it comes to updating the changelog. We have made some updates to backend and how products are handled. We have also added bulk actions on products so you can delete, archive or publish an array of products.

And now we are working on bulk actions for orders along with the order overview screen. This is where you will be able to review customer order information.

Add products

The team has been working diligently to deliver a stable final build to you so you will be able to use North Commerce on your production sites.

We have finished product creation. You are able to now:

1. Create 3 different product types
2. Publish, Schedule or Draft products
3. Add as many variations as you’d like to a product
4. Add images, change featured images that will be displayed first for every product
5.  Add bump pricing if you decide you want to offer this product as an order bump with different order bump pricing
6. Set SKUs & Quantity

There are a few more things we will be adding to products before we call it 100% completed but as of now it’s about 90% done.

Quick Side Update: We have finished the planning phase for how the builder will work and started laying out the design and some core functionality. Preview of builder coming soon.

Admin

Introducing the first build of the pre-alpha. While this build may not include a checkout flow, you’ll be able to experiment with a few of the core pages of the plugin.

You can see these screens, Overview, Orders, Settings & Integrations. In this particular build functionality is lacking, however you will still be able to get an overall feel for the admin side of things. 

  • The overview screen has only placeholder data
  • View orders with sample data
  • Integration Screen
  • Settings Screen
