We are happy to announce that we released a stable version of DJ-Catalog2 that includes e-commerce features.
The previous stable releases used to have 3.5.x version numbers, whereas some of you might already try version 3.6 beta. The "beta" stage was quite long and we were able not only to fix the bugs you reported but also add even more significant options. That's why we are skipping the number 3.6 and the newly released DJ-Catalog2 is having a version no. 3.7.
New demo site
We have prepared a new demo site for the e-commerce setup of DJ-Catalog2.
In the horizontal menu you can see the available views:
You can also check the more advanced products:
- A product with a complete setup (see product combinations):
- Grouped product (check how to set child products)
The component may now we used a shop which includes:
- making orders by registered or guest users,
- possibility to create various payment and delivery methods,
- basic stock control,
- Payment methods
- Delivery methods
- product combinations,
- and VAT handling,
- compare products,
- tiered pricing (unique feature)
- and more
A feature that allows you to define either variable price or discounts for your products depending on how many of them are being purchased in single order.
Based on selected custom attributes you can now create a various combination of one product, e.g. a t-shirt that comes in different colors and sizes.
The option that allows customers to adjust non-predefined attributes of a product, such as a place branding, add custom text or wrap item as gift.

It means that you are not only able to define VAT rate for a product, but you can also assign different VAT rates depending on the country to which the product will be presented/shipped/sold to.
