CartThrob Updates Imminent

CartThrob, one of the fantastic e-commerce solutions for ExpressionEngine has some awesome changes in store for us. (See what I did there?)

A series of tweets were sent from the @cartthrob account highlighting three new main features:

  • Order Manager
  • Gift Certificates
  • Expired Cart Notifications

Order Manager

From the looks of the screenshots, this Order Manager is full of graphs, reports, and more, to easily keep track of orders.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates are coming to CartThrob! With the ability to keep track of amount redeemed, and remaining balance, I’m sure this is a welcomed addition.

Expired Cart Notifications

From what appears to be a method for sending custom email notifications to customers for reasons relating to one’s cart expiring, these additional customizations to CartThrob look useful.

So, there you have it folks. The three previewed new features of CartThrob. No word on exact dates, but the folks over at Barrett Newton sure seem busy.
