http://www.website1.com/wholesale/ --- is the address of the main store I have.
http://store.website2.com --- is the address where I want the 2nd store for the multi store setup.
I want to set up one store and then clone it, basically, change the pricing for a retail and a wholesale site... Initially, I want the wholesale site up so my current customers can order this way instead of actually emailing and going back and forth... they know what they will get and how much it is and if I have it or not. I then want this store on another site (same products) so I can modify the customer group and pricing to retail so I can sell products both retail online and have an online ordering system.
I toyed with putting products in and then making a retail/wholesale customer group but the problem is that I cannot really depict pricing for each ... I can have all prices retail and then when a wholesale customer logs in, they have to be set up (each product) with "special" pricing. That works, but for example we have a pet food product that has 4 sizes, larger the size the more it costs of course... Retail is 7.99, Wholesale is 3.99... that discount works, but when I have the OPTIONS set for Sm, Med, Lrg, Jumbo, it takes the price from the 3.99 and marks it up but it goes too much or not enough depending on the options... so it discounts the retail to the special price and then uses some formula to figure out the other prices, problem being they do not figure correctly...
I'm lost. Help PLEASE!
I've created a new store using OC 1.5.6 and have it working fine, although not yet cosmetically where i want it to be. My problem is with adding another store, another domain name.
The one I want to add is an old store that has been working for 14 years on another hosting company with a different cart. I do not want to point the DNS to the OC host with the new site until I have the new version of the old site working on the new host. I hope that makes sense. My old store is functioning and making sales. I can't point the URL to the new DNS servers until I have a new store working.
When creating the add on domain in HostGator I saw this message from Cpanel:
"Addon domains will not function unless the domain name is registered with a valid registrar and configured to point to the correct DNS servers."
Obviously my domain name is registered, but it points to my old hosting company's name servers. Is this the reason I can't get the 2nd store to work? If not, what URL should I enter to bring up me 2nd store?
OC is installed in root.
public_html/index.php (this store is working)
Add on is:
public_html/oldstore.com/ (the only thing in the oldstore.com directory is an empty /cgi directory)
When creating the new store in OC, what url should I put?
I'm trying to set up multiple store on the same domain (subdomain) but the domain is hosted in 2 different server.
Main site is at https://onsales.biz - this is the main store being set up with multiple layer of security, with no access to cPanel. (document path look something like - /var/www/html/onsales)
The additional store is being set up using subdomain e.g http://shop1.onsales.biz & etc, and this reside on another server with it being redirect/pointing to main secure server IP (document root - /home/public_html).
How do I set up the additional store in this instance ?
Running Opencart v188.8.131.52 with multi-stores from https://www.labeshops.com which has links to all my stores.
I have added a screenprint from the control unit of my provider. What do I have to do to make it work? Any suggestion is welcome.

If i type in my second store url it still redirects to the first store, i have checked and i have no subdomains or redirects left. Where is this redirect coming from?
Here is what i have now:
OPENCART ADMIN PANEL
MAIN STORE: http://mainstore.com/store/
ADDON: Store URL: http://www.ADDONSTORE.com/store/
New Domain Name: addonstore.com
Subdomain/FTP Username: addonstore
Document Root: home/: public_html/addonstore.com/store/
when i goto the URL: addonstore.com i get this:
Index of /
My opencart website http://www.blossomaccessories.co.za Still work in progress but getting there.
I also tried the way k2tec has mentioned with no luck either, and i even used a blank slate and new domains for these.
I was a Prestshop but decided to opt for Open Cart mostly because it run much more faster.
Installed main store in a domain http://domain.com everything fine and perfect.
Now I need to install multi stores.
I opened another sub domain http://store2.domain.com
went to system>settings>Insert
added the subdomain as http://store2.domain.com/
when i click http://store2.domain.com/ not getting anything, becuase the folder created (store2) is empty.
Do i need to upload some files in folder store2?
what i am doing wrong?
Appreciate you help guys.
I was in cpanel going to file manager and it will prompt to start in a specific folder. I select Document root and it takes me to Public_html and not Public_html/store where my store files are located.
So i changed the document root in CPanel for 2ndstore.com to public_html and when i went to the 2ndstore.com it comes up.
So why is my document root Public_html when all my files are in a sub folder?
There are a lot of modules that support multi-stores, so not sure what you mean? I run 30 multi-stores so yes, opencart supports them.abady wrote:why there is no multi-stores Modules?
is opencart support multi-store? or opencart designed for one store???
Or are there other things I have to change and are there any complications I should watch out for?
The reason I ask is I am migrating an old site (myoldsite.com) to opencart.
I already have another opencart site let's call it widgets.com
myoldsite.com is going to be a multistore in widgets.com
I have set up a multistore mytemporarystore.com that I am populating with the prodcts from myoldsite.com
When I am ready I want to change the domain name of mytemporarystore.com to myoldsite.com
