Miva 10 is here.
Built on top of the powerful software you already know and love, Miva 10 is an evolutionary leap in the Miva platform. Miva 10 was built to help you do what you do best. Designed to empower store owners, developers, and operations teams, Miva 10 helps you speed time to market, streamline development, support customers, and drive meaningful growth.
Miva 10 encompasses over two and a half years of development time and thousands of man-hours. With Miva 10, we wanted to make the common daily tasks easier, faster, and more enjoyable. That’s why this release delivers a complete re-imagination of the Miva admin experience with a focus on performance and usability.
The batch list redesign is an excellent example of the principled approach we took to the design of Miva 10. To ensure that every design decision improved the overall user experience, our team improved existing functionality and added new features, including:
We made data-driven decisions to make getting around the Miva admin even easier. The entire navigation was reorganized around what you do most. Common Navigation items were brought forward and others moved into the background (but still just a click away).
In addition to improving the experience managing price groups, we’ve rethought how exclusions are handled to allow for added bulk exclusions to be applied when adding new price groups. For new price groups, we’ve added the ability to copy any price group with a few clicks.
With Miva 10, Miva’s built-in Sales Enablement tools have been overhauled to help you sell more.
Log in on behalf of any customer with an account and share their session if they are currently shopping the site.
See activity on your site in real time with the tools to add/modify items, apply discounts, and convert baskets into orders—all from within the Miva admin. You can also see and take action on any failed transactions.
Miva 10 introduces brand-new reporting for high-value customers, coupon usage, and sales commissions to give you the data you need to make the right decisions.
A brand-new integration with PayPal’s latest payment tools—including Customer Credit, PayPal Checkout, and Credit Card Processing—elevates your customers’ buying experience.
Miva 10 gives your development team the tools they need to create the best on-site experience for your customers. With unlimited development environments available at the click of a button, developers can quickly and accurately create and test new builds.
Miva 10 makes version control and concurrent development easy with mergeable template branches that support seamless collaboration between multiple developers. A locally-exportable UI lets developers use their favorite tools, promoting faster (and smoother) development, testing, and quality assurance.
