Cancel All and Return All support in SF

Use Case: Currently, the platform only supports order item level cancellation and returns. When the # Order items are large this process becomes tedious. 

This enhancement allows for bulk cancellations and returns from Storefront.

There is no change in the behavior of cancellation and returns. i.e.:

Cancel: All pending and authorized order items can be canceled.

Return: All delivered order items can be returned. 

The template changes needed for this are available in the document attached.

Cart Enhancement

Cart architectural changes have been made to improve the cart performance and support additional consumer journey use cases. 

Key Highlights of cart architectural changes:

  1. Cart refresh based on new location and delivery mode.
     In location-based journey’s, Eg. Pizza Hut, the store can be changed in the checkout stage as well. Information on out of stock products and change in product price can be shown when the location is changed.
  2. Refresh stale carts: The current price, inventory, and promotions will be reflected in the cart. This is needed for periodicity based products and promotions 


Promotion Enhancements

Channel-based promotions allow merchants to configure targeted promotions. Eg. Promotions for IOS App users, Desktop Users etc. 

Platform and Channel have to be configured at a merchant level. This is available under Application Settings > Store Settings

Channel Configuration (Application Settings > Store Settings)
