Here is the info regarding system requirements:

As your notice says  it is a server issue.

Cntl+F5 for your web browser to clear PC cache

I think  the 900 x 45  in the AbanteCart Manual is probably a typo -  and should be 90 x 45

I have several sites for the brand set to 114x 114 and they seem to work well.

Brand Icon List: The recommended is 900x45.    did you see this on

did you change the sizing on the appearance page?  in   System > settings > appearance?  It is the grid setting for the product page. This also affects ALL grid images.

And clear your admin Cache and your browser cache after making changes  so you can see them.   AbanteCart has a great caching system so when making changes you need to force a cache update

Set your payment to COD,  only for the time it takes to place your order.
Make an order like a real customer,  you can use your same email.

then you will get the customer email,  and you will get your order notification email.

DO NOT FORGET to turn of COD.

Your current logo image is a gif.

Abantecart recommends format jpg but you can add .png logo or even svg html resource

I should have also told you to hover over your logo and select "view image info"  then you will see that looks like that second shot

using FireFox browser,  hover over any image -  right click,   find the view image info, click on it to get the details.

Chrome works differently.  Firefox is easiest for this.

See attached images for details.

Congrats on the completion.

Here's some useful info on the logos

your storefont logo is 2000px x 235 px  and is scaling ok in storefront. 
Recommend you resize to recommendations and reload.

You can change the edit the size of your brand ( Custom Autosound)  as well as your email logo
in  System > settings > appearance

Maxter,  what version of AbanteCart did you use the extension with?   I see it hasn't been updated since 2017,  and that gave me pause in suggesting it.

If your products don't have options = like colors,    a really easy, fast way is to use the promotions tab on the product.  If you have options,  they can only order the same color (option) .

Simply set the qty to 2,  and use half the price.  if customer orders only one it is the full price,  if they order 2  it is still just the full price.   eg  one is 25.  2  will still be 25.   You need to set maximum qty  to 2,  or if they order 3  they will get the 12.50 x 3 unless you want customer to be able to buy 3 at reduced price.

Add a blub about the BOGO  -  see attachment

happy to hear you are fixed.

Yes ,  Abantecart has a robust caching ,  and when doing changes within the admin side,  clearing cache is a good thing.  And one I often forget, too.

did you install with https?  or only http?   If https,  are both of your urls in the system - settings - system using the correct url?

there is a link to the htaccess for rewrite

Seems you might have installed manually

After the Installation

    Once the installation is complete, it is strongly recommended that you bookmark or remember your control panel link. Delete install directory from your AbanteCart installation and set only read permission for the system/config.php and /index.php file! Set with 644 or 640 permissions (444, or even 400 depending on your server setup). Only working directories needs to be 777 as cache, resources, images, logs. PHP files should not be 777 on live site.

the above is from the manual (link is in the header of this forum)

Welcome to AbanteCart.

Not to put too fine of a point on it,  but October 11, 2017, was the initial post of 2.0 starting post.  Third anniversary and still counting.

We are no longer sitting on the edge of our seats in anticipation.  For me it has moved to a feeling of dread as to what pitfalls we're going to experience in conversion from v1  to v2.  I sincerely hope for  what portents to be a major change will be better tested by MORE of us users and extension developers prior to launch so the prior shortcomings of version updates are not replicated.

After 7+ years using AbanteCart we are committed to AbanteCart and know that it has great merit even in spite of some major failures in some upgrades. 

Regards, with my fingers crossed for excellence
