In my previous post I wrote about the new functions and improvements that will be included in CS-Cart when the new release is out. Those things were great, but the features I’m going to tell you about now are hardly less important.
But before we start, I’d like to thank everybody who commented on the first part of the preview. Getting feedbacks (and especially such positive ones) is really important, I appreciate it very much. Please keep on doing so :-)
And now, let’s get on with it!
Customer login via Facebook, Twitter, OpenID and others
CS-Cart is becoming more socialized! The coming release brings on social login — the feature allowing customers to log in to CS-Cart-powered stores using their accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Google and many other social services. Well, ain’t that great?
This feature became possible with the help of Janrain Engage, web-service that gives social networking flavour to arbitrary web-sites with user login. We’ve powered CS-Cart with a special add-on that connects your shop with a Janrain account. Just activate this add-on in the CS-Cart administration panel and perform some initial setup to let your customers enjoy social login right away.
Adding social login is a huge step forward in the evolution of CS-Cart. We’re sure our clients will appreciate it at its true value. You can find full list of the supported services here.
