About multi stores

Case 1

With Magento, different shop systems are administered. However, only one shop participates in idealo Checkout. This would be the standard shop (main website).
Note: As long as the multi-store mode is off, only one store is taken in account (the default one)

  1. Carry out all settings in the standard configuration.
    The main settings:
    Aktiv = „Ja“
    Authentication token = „Token des Händlers“
    Multi store mode = „Nein“
    Mode = „Live“ for live or „Test“ for the sand box

  2. Carry out all settings from step 1 (incl. token) in the main website store for each shop view. In the above mentioned example, the shop views would be „English“, „German“ and „Store 5“.

  3. Regarding all other shops, the setting „Aktiv“ can be set to „Nein“ for each view, but it is not mandatory if multi-store mode is off.

Case 2

With Magento, different shop systems are administered and more than one participate in idealo Checkout.

  1. Carry out settings as mentioned in Case 1. Only choose Multi store mode = „Ja“
  2. Activate the respective shops in the configuration (Aktiv = „Ja“)
    Each shop receives an individual token which needs to be stored in each shop.
    Important: this setting (Token and Aktiv = „Ja“) has to be repeated in each shop view of the shop.

rm -rf lib/idealo
mysql -u {PLACE DB_USER} -h {PLACE DB_HOST} -p'{PLACE DB_PASS}' -e "DELETE FROM core_resource WHERE code = 'idealo_direktkauf_setup';" {PLACE DB_NAME}


How can I set an individual revokation reason per canceled order?

After having canceled an order, a dropdown appears in the idealo Direktkauf - Box in the information - tab of the order in the Magento backend. You can either choose „Kunden-Widerruf“, „Retoure“ or „Vom Händler abgelehnt“.
