Release Notes 7.0 - Durst Smart Shop

This version of the Smart Shop focuses on increasing speed and simplifying and optimising product processing. This makes the user experience even more intuitive and user-friendly. In addition, the update was made to Joomla 4 and Bootstrap 5, which comes with all its advantages.

New base on Joomla 4

Smart Shop 7.0 is now based on Joomla 4, an award-winning open-source CMS for websites that is robust, very powerful, secure and easy to use. Obsolete functions have been removed and many new ones have been added. For example, the PHp version has been increased to PHP7, the media manager has been rebuilt and there is a new user interface for the frontend and backend. For Smart Shop 7.0, this means not only increased security but also a stable and updateable environment for all applications. 

Bootstrap 5

In addition, Smart Shop 7.0 uses the latest version of Bootstrap, Bootstrap 5, which is the most popular HTML, CSS and JavaScript framework for creating responsive websites.

Distribution of product information - optimised speed

Print products often have an enormous number of configuration options in their different variations. In the new Durst Smart Shop 7.0, several thousand attributes of products can be processed at optimised speed. Hardly any delays occur in the process. This makes the creation and processing of products with complex attributes easier and, above all, faster.

Simplified processing of dependent attributes

Image for the creation of dependent attributes 

Creating dependent attributes in products is much more efficient and faster in Smart Shop 7.0. It is now possible to assign images to certain combinations of attributes, which are then displayed in the frontend. This significantly reduces the effort when creating products and gives the possibility of a complex composition of the variants of a product.

Show only dependent attributes that are inserted in the product

When creating products, from now on only the dependent product attributes that have been stored for the product are displayed in the overview in the backend.This makes the display of the selected attributes of a product much clearer, and changes can be implemented better and faster.

Saving attributes

Until now, when changing and configuring attributes during the creation of products, it was necessary to save these changes several times and in different places. This is no longer necessary. In the new Smart Shop 7.0 this is no longer necessary. Saving changes once in one place is now sufficient.

Faster processing of attributes

Smartshop 7.0 is also much faster in processing the attributes created in the products. Thousands of attributes can be processed within a very short time and the loading time in Smart Shop 7.0 is many times faster.

Batch processing in product management

One of the best developments in Smart Shop 7.0 is the batch processing in product management. It is now possible to store a change, such as information that applies to several products, in one step. To do this, the products for which the information is to be stored are selected in the product overview. Then, in a second step, the information - descriptions, data sheets, pictures - can be stored in a central place and are visible in all products after saving.


Partial delivery

Until now it was not possible to store partial deliveries in the Smart Shop. A partial delivery occurs when an order is sent to the buyer in several parts instead of sending all ordered goods at once.


Shipping costs calculation on federal state level

In Smart Shop 7.0, the option to automatically calculate shipping costs according to the delivery location, be it the province, the state or, for example, the cantons, is now also available. Through this function, the user can precisely determine the costs for the end customer and thus create additional transparency around e-commerce.

Multipayment interfaces

Smart Shop 7.0 now offers an even wider range of multipayment interfaces. For Smart Shop 7.0 customers, this means one system, one partner and one contract that can be used for a wide range of online payment options.

  • Mollie (Invoice, Apple Pay, Ideal, Kreditkarte, Klarna, Klarna Invoice, Klarna Sofort, Klarna Slice it, Paypal, Pay now, Banktransfer / SEPA Lastschrift, Giropay…)
  • Stripe
  • Square
  • Authorize
  • Google Pay
  • Paypal

Multishipping interfaces

Multishipping interfaces can also be integrated in version 7.0 of the Smart Shop, which make it possible to select different shipping service providers and thus the best price for shipping the goods via one provider. With these multishipping providers, the shipping costs are calculated live by specifying weight and delivery address. This in turn increases transparency in the sales process for the end customer and makes the calculation of the products much more accurate.

  • EASYPOST - USA and Canada
  • Shipit – Australia

Google Analytics 4 compatible e-commerce tool (fee required)

The Smart Shop 7.0 is compatible with the Google Analytics 4 tool.
Google Analytics 4 presents an innovative property variant specifically designed to meet future analytics needs. This enables the collection of data from both websites and apps, providing a more comprehensive understanding of the buying process. Here, the focus is on collecting event-based data instead of session-based data to gain more precise insights.

Erweiterung Reality Preview

Separation of ordering and uploading files

Previously, customers could upload files in Smart Shop before placing an order and thus make them available to the print service provider. In Smart Shop 7.0, there is also the option of uploading data after the order has been placed if the status of the order has not been changed to production. This offers customers the possibility to place an order to be considered in the production process and then to store the corresponding files.
