The main purpose of this edition is to give its owner an opportunity to manage several online stores from one control panel. The stores may or may not be connected to each other. We wanted to give the freedom of the choice to the store administrator, therefore the Multi-store edition is enriched with a variety of settings both for every particular storefront involved and for general management.
For example, one can give a totally different set of goods to every store, yet being able to share items between stores without restriction. And even for the shared items one can set different prices and descriptions on every particular storefront. One can also share customers between the storefronts or, on the contrary, separate them or even restrict their access to some storefronts independently from the others.
