In a previous article, we covered what CS-Cart is and what it can do. One of the great features about CS-Cart is that it is ‘Multi-Store software’ as well which means that you can run multiple stores with the same products all with the same backend.
Not sure how a multi-store works? Let me explain.
Say you are running a business that sells sports products, things like shoes, clothes, equipment etc. To better reach your audience, you might decide to have a main store that houses all of your products then have a separate store for each sport you stock items for. For example, you could have a basketball, netball, football and cricket store. These stores could also be on separate domains to take advantage of the SEO value that they have, so you would have domains like:
With the functionality that CS-Cart has, you wouldn’t have 5 separate sites each with separate logins and panels to make updates to stock and product details. You wouldn’t have to login to 5 separate locations, you would have one central admin location where you can set which products will show up on what stores and you can see all the orders in one place.
Not only this but each store can be styled completely different from each other. This can be especially useful if you have multiple brands under one company. If you have separate sites for each of the bands you sell currently, you can consolidate them all into one admin to save you time and money.
How you separate your stores doesn’t have to end here. You can split them by location, retail and wholesale sites, affiliation stores etc. Any configuration that you need for your stores can be done with CS-Cart and with the experts at Fox & Lee.
These sites can also be hosted on one server with no reduction in speed or performance. All of the other functions in CS-Cart are still available in this layout and can even be configured on a per store level. You can have a coupon code that is only useable on one of your stores and not the others. You can run a special pricing promotion during particular times of the year for specific stores. You can really configure these stores in any way that you need while still keeping everything in one central location.
