Miva Merchant 5.5: The Official Guide – Second Edition (PR7 & PR8) marks my seventh Miva Merchant book. The latest version covers all features through Production Releases 7 and 8 (Wombat and Cuscus), including reports, swappable images and advanced order processing.
The electronic version (eBook) is now available to all Miva Merchant 5.5 licensed users (Miva Merchant has exclusive distribution rights). The print edition comes with many bonuses, including update documentation, a yearly subscription to the Shopability Matters monthly newsletters and an “Ask Pamela” section at MvHelp.com.
