Reward Points 1.3 Becomes a Universal Rewarding Tool

Last time we highlighted the functionality that processes Magento store refunds with points, including refunding to points, returns of spent points for refunded orders or point withdrawals earned for subsequently refunded purchases. Still, the sales processed by Magento 2 stores may involve even more aspects affecting reward points, e.g. taxes and shipping.

Active Filters at the Top of Page

Active Filters at the Top of Page

The newly added feature displays all active filters at the top of the layered navigation results page just above the block of selected products. Thus, customers are able to see them all in one place and manage them conveniently. They can disable either selected or all filters in just one click. For their convenience, filters are shown in the order they appear in sidebars from top to bottom.

Starting from the current version, the extension is provided with the ‘SEO’ configuration field set located in the Configuration section. It contains multiple configuration options, so let’s take a look at them from the very beginning.
