What's new with the iPages update?
One Page Checkout & Guest Checkout
All iPages stores now come with a one-page checkout and guest checkout functionality as standard. Allowing customers to checkout as guests, on a single page has been proven to help increase conversions.
iPages allows you to track live carts within your admin area and follow up on your abandoned carts using the in-built e-campaign tools.
Holistic upgrades to the admin area
The iPages admin area has been upgraded to improve the speed of all pages, helping you manage your website and process orders efficiently. The admin look has also been given a modernised, branded look.
Streamlined Order Management & Fulfilment
The update establishes the order screen as the heart of your order management, with the ability to allocate, un-allocate, cancel, un-cancel, dispatch and create Goods-Out notes from one area.

Within iPages you can now process orders from multiple channels (or websites) within one unified 'Multi-Channel' order management screen, giving you a holistic view of your multi-channel sales.
Upgraded Stock Control Features, Policies & Reports
The Multi-Channel Inventory management now allows you to control your stock policies within each channel, and get an instantaneous view of your entire inventory.
