Multi-Storefront (MSF)

Multi-Storefront (MSF) is a a top requested feature on Bigcommerce and is currently in closed-beta. MSF enables merchants to grow their business with BigCommerce by providing them with an efficient way to manage multi-region, multi-segment or multi-brand sites within a single BigCommerce Store.

OrderCup is compatible with the Multi-Storefront (MSF) feature provided by Bigcommerce. It is one of the few apps approved by Bigcommerce as Multi-Storefront compatible for closed-beta.

How MSF feature works in OrderCup:

Whenever a Bigcommerce merchant with MSF enabled on their Bigcommerce store installs the OrderCup app, OrderCup creates a separate store for each storefront/channel in their Bigcommerce store in the same OrderCup account. Every such OrderCup store fetches only the orders that belong to it's associated channel. So the merchant can view and fulfill orders by channels. Every store in OrderCup can have its own Shipping origin, Store logo, currency, custom templates etc, hence providing complete flexibility in configuration.

While the channel specific stores in OrderCup work the same way as any non-MSF store works, we provide a listing of channels at Settings --> Stores --> Details. More features like sync channels, enable/disable channels etc will be provided soon.
