The following FREE upgrades are available on the abcommerce platform NOW.

VAT Invoices
You can now convert your confirmation email into a VAT invoice on B2C websites giving the customer a VAT breakdown of the order please note you’ll need to assign all your products to tax codes. Read more here

Product Detail Confirm Terms Checkbox
In certain circumstances, particularly for the Pharmacy Industry, it is important that certain terms are met before a customer purchases a product. For example, in the Pharmacy Industry, a customer must be over 18 before they can purchase certain non-prescription medicinal products.
With that in mind, we have released a new feature that allows the Retailer to add a Checkbox to the product detail page that must be ticked before a customer can purchase a product.
The Retailer can decide what text to add to the Checkbox allowing you the flexibility to use this feature in multiple ways. Read more here.

Shipping Countries & Rates Admin
You can now select the countries/regions you deliver to and set shipping rates with new admin functionality. You can select from up to 250 countries to ship to. Options include changing to shipping by weight bands and changing the title of the country.
