User Friendly, Interface Administration Interface

Our Shopping Cart's back end administration section has been designed for ease of use. We've emulated the feel of a desktop application, to help ease the merchant into learning the details of the cart. Navigation is done via drop down menus that are very similar to those seen in non web-based applications. Many of the field names listed on the records in the DB are links that you can click on to get help for the particular field you are altering. !

Product options

Product Options allow your customers to make choices when adding an item to their cart. You can use them for:

* Simple choices like "size" or "color"

* Gather text for engravings, gift cards, etc. Charge per character entered. Optionally charge for spaces if needed.

* Completely customize an item (such as an audio component system)

* Add optional extra items.

* Gather image or other files from your customer to customize a product.

* Options can be shown in storefront as text, textarea, select, radio, checkbox, and file fields.

* Options can be marked as required (customer must choose an option in order to purchase item)

* Options can alter the price and weight of a product (add or subtract)

* Options can also set the price of an item. For example, a recording offered on DVD for $19.95, or VHS for $14.95.

* The Shopping Cart can add a link that will open a popup detail page describing an option, and it's choices. If you add images for your choices, they will appear in this page. It's a great way to show detailed information describing the option and it's choices.

* Our inventory control feature allows you to track your stock at the option level.


You can create just about any kind of discount you can come up with using our Discount feature and condition system.

* Apply discounts to 1 or more products, categories, or the entire order

* You can combine the conditions above into complex formulas to fine tune your discounts. For example: offer discount when (Date is between 10/15/2006 - 11/15/2006 AND Product total is more than $50.00) OR Coupon Code is "ABGT5S29"

* Advertise your discounts on a product page.

* Display discounts that customer is receiving below checkout form OR as a popup page.
