REGIONAL HOLIDAY CATALOGS

The online version of the 2020 hoiday catalog for the various regions are now available for IndieCommerce and IndieLite stores.

Stores can link to the catalog by adding a menu link or a block.

Note : The full URL (including your site URL) should be used when creating a menu link. This is different from how other menu links are created, where only the relative path (what comes after the site URL) is used.

Not For Sale

This feature allows you to make specific titles Not for Sale through your website, even if these books are available through Ingram. These are titles that your store has chosen for any reason not to make available for sale to the public.
 
Navigate to Store -> Configuration -> Store Pricing -> Books -> Not For Sale
 
You can now choose whether to display these titles on your site or to suppress them completely from any search results.
