Internal statuses are typically displayed only to your on-line store administrators in the user interface, not to the customers on the live site. For example New model, Old model, Discounted, etc.
Internal statuses can be defined in CMS Desk -> E- commerce -> Configuration -> Internal status (or in Site Manager -> Tools -> E-commerce configuration -> Internal status; global internal statuses only). In this section of the administration interface, you can see a list of all defined internal statuses. You can add new internal statuses by clicking the New internal status button above the list. Properties of already defined internal statuses can be edited by clicking the Edit () icon in the Actions column. You can also delete an internal status by clicking the Delete () icon.
When creating a new internal status or editing an existing one, you can specify the following properties:
•Display name - the name of the internal status displayed to the users of your website.
•Code name - the name of the internal status used by developers in the code.
•Enabled - indicates if the internal status object can be used in your on-line store. For example, if checked, the respective internal status can be selected from the Internal status drop-down list when editing a product on the General tab.
