Thank you for evaluating Magelia WebStore for your project and for your suggestions.
The possibility to import customers will be provided in V1 but the ability to create a customer and an order directly from the administration console will come up later.
Concerning the other features that you mention, some are under development (orders for instance). Other features will not be included into the Magelia WebStore core but will be available as modules or 'apps'. We are working on an extensibility engine that
will allow to add modules to the Magelia WebStore core. Modularity is a complex issue and it will take some time. This might be late for your customer and adding custom code to Magelia Webstore would probably be the best solution in the short run.
To help you better understand if your customer's project is compatible with our MageliaWebStore release timeframe, here is a basic roadmap :
- V1 Community Edition will be released in January 2012
- V1 Professional Edition (including features such as profiles management, tier-prices, etc.) will be released end Q1/Q2 2012. Licence pricing has not been defined yet.
- Next major version including modularity should be available in Q2 2012.
By the way, the next beta releases will include setup (using WebPI); a basic asp.netMvc website, and media management.
We hope that these answers give you a better understanding of the project. Please visit
