In relation to my previous
post, here I giving suggestions for few other features I see in
all other Ecommerce applications.
Email notification should be sent when product is out of stock
and backorder is set to off.
Email notification should be sent to merchant when new customer
register on site.
Cart value adding product price + Shipping + Tax should be
calculated on product details page using Ajax or AngularJs
(Without going on checkout page)
Promo box on checkout page should not appear unless promo
discount is created in admin.
Pagination of productlist.php causing duplicate title and
description tag error in Google webmaster account so there should
be canonical link tag in productlist.php (As per
Allow customers to Login with Facebook or other social medias,
it definitely help increase customer data.(take whatever data is
available from Facebook and other account and for shipping,
customer manually add their address)
Ajax Captcha or Image Captcha code during new customer registration.
Allow merchant to select targeted countries for selling (Like woocommerce)
Show customers how many quantities left
Show product SKU weight if Option type is table.
Product Price and add to cart button available to only
authorized customers (For pharma related clients)
Android web service using json (for mobile applications)
Option for customers to compare similar products and buy best one.
In Order notification email, item should appear in HTML table
formats (similar to order content in admin
I've implemented features 4 to 11 from above list but it should be available as default
to all cw users.
Hope I will see all these features in coming updates :)
the Munich-based company Loden Frey caters their clothing to customers
in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and German-speaking
Italy. I guess they won't mind oders from Belgium or Denmark either. You
can visit their website at http://www.lodenfrey.com
/, sorry no English version. As a customer it makes no difference
whether you order from Italy (22% VAT) or Austria (20% VAT) or Denmark
(23% VAT): your price at this web-site is always the same and that is
the German price including 19% VAT. Generally inter-Union trade with
end-customers is taxed at the German rate of 19%. This is not the case,
owever, once you reach a threshold-revenue that is generally set around
35.000e p.a.. Above that threshold you deduct your German tax and levy a
foreign one, say Italian. As Loden Frey is above that revenue threshold
in both Austrian and Italian markets (35ke p.a.), they must pay VAT in
Austria and Italy. So there you are with a company that establishes one
price across different markets with differing VAT-rates. It would look
awful to have a web-site with 5 or 6 price-citations per item. The other
option would be to run different web-sites for each of the different
markets. Some companies do just that. I have understood that cart-weaver
is not built for such a scenario. Just take notice please, that there
are companies who conduct their pricing in the above mentioned fashion.
That said, it would also be helpful if you just added a button in the
admin section that allows the calculation of VAT included and not
added to prices.
I was afraid that this would be the answer. How can you pursure a
pricing strategy, when the end-price, that is, including vat is
different depending on each tax-region? I want a product to cost 5e both
in denmark (23%vat) and germany (19%). Say i got the price
"right" with 20e in germany, this would result in a quirky
20,67e in denmark. yuck! any of the major textile labels in europe, for
example, have pricing policies that let a retail price end in 95 or 99
cent throughout the union at varying vat-rates. impossible to do with
cartweaver as is. maybe an option for future releases?
Thank you, Oli, for your reply!
CF's debugging has a lot going on and can interfere with some third
party apps... My suggestion to check the function of your site, as it
would be in the "real-world" setting is to temporally turn
debugging off as needed.
Michael Evangelista from Gowesthosting got my details to be
included in the Paypal info. Very helpful since I can download cart
details from Paypal to an excel file and sort. It is a coldfusion site
however so not sure if that will help you.
I also have a bit of problem in that the "Add to Cart" buttons
all still say "Add to Cart" on my home pag
e and product
, but are OK on individual product pages.
I am beginning to wonder if I am ever going to figure this out...
One more pricing issue... I did a test purchase and it gave me an order
confirmation page stating paid in full. Where in the heck do I look to
get rid of that message and have it say pending or nothing at all?
Finally - my data is in place. It was actually much easier than even
using another third party utility. I am using MAMP for my local server
and it provides a myPHPadmin utility. I was able to export my data from
there and then import it on my external server. As is often the case, I
made it harder than it needed to be...
Ok Oli - Finally my cart has no error - but wouldn't you know it - it's
now not charging any shipping for ANY of my products. I can't seem
to find any actual instructions on how to set this up or anything to
make sure it's done right....and since I walked into someone else's
website and have never used Cartweaver before - it seems that it would
be helpful to have some step by step instructions! Help!
Thanks for the reply... Yes, we're using 4.02.01... and I see the
shipping options for UPS, but none for FedEx. We have a UPS account. We
will be fine with that at the present time. Was just interested in the
FedEx option... Interesting that it should be there out of the can, but
that I don't see it. I've gone to every tab in Admin, but I don't see
Thanks again for responding.
Thanks Oli. I'm learning about the PCI compliance and thanks for
confirming about your end. Our webhost, HostMySite, also seems to
be meeting their requirements. I seem to be doing my part as well
so we should be good.
