Today my store support two different languages. Where the root domain is English and /no is Norwegian. They both share the same prices with NOK being the base currency.

However we are about to add a third language. For SEO purposes we need the domain to remain intact and just add a sub folder like the Norwegian purpose. However the third language need to have its own base price, cost, tax settings and more.

Is this possible and if so, how do I create the third language to be "independent".

  • Sure you can if you create new website, prices and qty are assigned per webstore - you shouldn't create new store view – Ahmed Elawadi Jan 8 '16 at 13:38
  • or if you want to use store view you can use a module innoexts.com/promotion/store-view-pricing/#.Vo--CBWLRaR – Ahmed Elawadi Jan 8 '16 at 13:44
  • Would that include taxes as well. So just this view can have taxes for instance? – Andreas Jan 8 '16 at 13:45
  • yes with website you can have separate price, tax and qty. after you create the website you need to assign your products to the new website – Ahmed Elawadi Jan 8 '16 at 13:48
  • But how do I set tax-setting on website level? – Andreas Jan 8 '16 at 13:52

You can add a new website with base_url as {main_domain}/subfolder.
With this you can configure a different currency, all the other thing and keep the main domain intact.


Here you can find a quick tutorial to setup a new website : http://www.ecommercegorilla.com/how-to-set-up-multiple-store-fronts-with-magento/
Please take care, the part configuring the secure and unsecure URLs here you have to fill {main_domain}/subfolder

  • So we should be able to set this up using domain.com/new_lang but with this new language have its own tax prices etc? – Andreas Jan 12 '16 at 22:28
  • Yes with a new webiste you can do all this configuration. Keep in mind that website is like a new shop in Magento so you can configure it the way you want. – Matthéo Geoffray Jan 13 '16 at 8:56
  • Is this the same as a storeview? Usure of the actual setup – Andreas Jan 13 '16 at 12:29
  • When you create a new website it is a copy of the "Default" configuration. Of course it is a "feature" in Magento if you want to manage stock separatly you have to use a module for that (for example wyomind.com/fr/advanced-inventory-magento.html). You can give a try to create a new website you will see that you can configure anything you want as you asked. It is the point of Magento multi-website feature ;) – Matthéo Geoffray Jan 13 '16 at 12:42
  • Ok, so it's a Website. Not a Store or Store view and with that we should be able to have third language as folder without messing up the existing two. – Andreas Jan 14 '16 at 13:36

You can't with Store view only website

From https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4994888/multi-store-and-multi-stock-with-magento

Prices cannot be specified per store, only per website and then only if you turn on the option in System > Configuration > Catalog > Price.

Stock can only be controlled globally - which makes sense because you either have stock or you don't. Instead change the Status to disabled for whichever site you wish.

If you want to keep using store views you can use module: https://github.com/careysizer/Magento-StoreLevel-Stock http://innoexts.com/promotion/store-view-pricing/#.Vo_BnRWLRaQ

With website you can manage prices and qty separately
