Feature list by server-side version/release channel


#1

Here is a non-exhaustive list of features offered in all our channels. It is divided into 3 subcategories: latest payment gateways, store functionality, and shopper experience. The payment gateways supported in earlier branches are implicitly covered in these branches.

The store functionality section deals with features that are provided at the WebStore Manager (WSM) and are therefore not accessible to your customers. The shopper experience details the features that are available to your customers. This list covers features available as of end July 2016 and is therefore likely to be updated as new features are added to the platform. Finally, where possible, we will provide links to forum thread where further details on specific features were given.
