SoftSlate Commerce 3.4.0 Released

SoftSlate is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of SoftSlate Commerce, version 3.4.0. The new features in this release include auto-suggestions for customers using the search box, integration with Accept.js, and a revamped API with interactive documentation and new API endpoints. This release also includes a number of other improvements and fixes. For a complete list of changes between 3.3.6 and 3.4.0 visit the Change Log.


Starting with version 3.4.0, the search box can present customers with suggested searches matching the initial characters the user types in. Administrators can enable the auto-suggestions so that products in the store that match the initial characters of the search pop up under the search box, where the customer can click or scroll down to select one: Auto-Suggestion Screenshot. To enable and configure this feature, Administrators should visit the Advanced Search -> Advanced Search Settings screen. After enabling, the suggestions need to be indexed on the Advanced Search -> Advanced Search Reindex screen. (This feature requires the Enterprise Edition.) Accept.js Integration

In version 3.4.0, we have added integration with's Accept.js API. Admins can choose to use Accept.js when asking customers for credit card information, which has the advantage of improving security and reducing PCI scope. Accept.js is a Javascript tool from where the customer's browser requests a token directly from, and submits that token to the store, instead of the raw credit card number. As a result, the credit card is never exposed to the store's server, which is great security benefit. To enable and configure this feature, Administrators should use the Payment Configuration -> -> AIM screen. Allow with this new feature, the existing integration has been upgraded according to their most recent specs.

Revamped API

Also new in version 3.4.0 is a revamped API that allows developers to make requests to retrieve and update information in the SoftSlate Commerce store. The API is in beta and features interactive documentation created with the Swagger API tool, allowing developers to review and try out all of the supported API calls. This documentation is available for the demo store here: To enable and set up the new API, Administrators should visit the API documentation page for full details:
