Extended Catalog Mode

CS-Cart Extended Catalog Mode is an extra feature for the CS-Cart online store system. CS-Cart is a popular tool that helps businesses make and manage their online shops. This extra mode is useful for special cases.

Normally, online stores let you see things, add them to a cart, and buy them. But sometimes, businesses want to show things without selling them right away. This is where the Extended Catalog Mode helps.

With this mode, stores can show things like in a catalog. People can't buy directly. Instead of the usual buy process, the main thing is to show details like what things are, how they look, and what they do.

This feature is great for businesses that want to show stuff online without letting people buy right away. It's like when a shop shows nice things but doesn't let you buy them online. This is good for businesses that have their own plans and ideas for selling things.

So, CS-Cart Extended Catalog Mode is a useful tool for businesses that want to show their stuff online in their own way. It's for businesses that don't want people to buy things right away online. It helps them make their online shop just how they want it.

Why do we need CS-Cart Extended Catalog Mode?

The CS-Cart Extended Catalog Mode add-on is important for businesses that want to show their products without letting people buy them immediately online. It's useful for companies selling special, expensive things like fancy watches or custom furniture. 

With this add-on, businesses can share product details and pictures, and they can encourage customers to ask questions or get advice before they buy. This helps make customers' shopping experience better and lets businesses handle sales in a more personal way.

Think about a fancy fashion brand that makes a small collection of expensive designer handbags. They want to show these bags on their website with lots of pictures and information, but they'd rather people get in touch to ask about buying. 

With the CS-Cart Extended Catalog Mode add-on, they can show the bags nicely without a button for buying online. This keeps things special and lets the brand get info about possible buyers to talk to them more personally.4
