allow the use of multiple sales channels for instance for different websites, countries and shops.
Define custom sales channels with their own information and business logic, just like a multi-company setup but much easier.
setup sales channels
For each sales channel you can specify a default pricelist, tax structure, logo and address, sales person and many other settings.
sales channels on order and invoices
Specify a sales channel with every sale order or customer invoice.
define tax structure
For each sales channel you can define a seperate tax structure if you like, just like you can in a multicompany setup.
generate unlimited reports
Create custom reports based on sales channels. For instance turnover and profit per sales channel per month.
To create a new sales channel go to Sales -> Configuration -> Sales Channels and click on Create. Then type at least a name and select the tag 'Sales Channel'.
