“So what can it do?

Channel Entries.

Channels: it's a love story. You can store product data in your channel entries. Or don't. it's up to you. Oh, and you can store order data, discounts, & coupons in channels too. And you're not limited to just a single wimpy custom field to manage your products. We've got the tools you need to build your system your way.

Order Manager.

Advanced custom reports & data exports, invoice & packing lists, customer rebilling system, order update notifications, mass status updating, all at your fingertips. And you're not stuck with some inflexible order database, we use channels. You can review and edit order data right in your channel entries.

We use it too!
