We reconsidered all Commerce concept. As we started to develop it as one component solution, now it turned to be a problem. We have custom article type in Content with custom fields and custom products in Commerce and other doubling functionality. It is not good to maintain the same functionality in different components. So the decision is: "JoomSuite Commerce - is a set of JoomSuite Components"
As all our components developed preferably for online businesses they become part of Commerce
- JoomSuite Content - will be used to create products along with any other content. This functionality will be implemented by creating fields type like: price, weight, product type and other commerce related. Also there will be added new options on type creation if this type is a product.
- JoomSuite Message - will be used in B2B, BB2B solutions to communicate and make product inquiry.
- JoomSuite User - will be used for user/seller/company registration depending on business model.
- JoomSuite Community - will be used to create seller/company's profile
- JoomSuite Bill - will be used to process payments.
- JoomSuite Analytics - will show reports for any of above components in flash dynamic diagrams.
And finally JoomSuite Commerce will have set of configuration determining business logic, handle product cart to form order.
And this is relay great news because, all those components are very advanced and you will not find Commerce solution that has so advanced user registration manager or so advanced custom product type creation as custom types by Content. You see it may be a little bit more complicated to install and configure for all components to relate to each other appropriate way, but result would be the best solution not only in Joomla world but in world in whole. What I want to say, that you woun't find anywhere ecommerce solution that can do everything Joomla, and all above listed JoomSuite Components can do together.
