Cart-Power Add-On: Additional Products

Dear Friends,

Today we have uploaded CS-Cart “Additional products” add-on. There are a lot of different moments when you can easily sell additional goods with the main product, for example, smartphones with cases and headsets, touristic sets of sleep bags, tents, backpacks, shoes and care tools. No matter what kind of business you have, extra sales always will be actual. Feel free to offer additional products, cause it’s quite a good chance to enlarge your profit, if users draw attention to them. Additional products help you to reach a new sales level.

Administrator features:

  • Increase your sales via additional products;
  • Choose the better template for your web-store. Templates allow you to change the additional products displaying;
  • Configure extra parameters, for instance, the displaying of images and descriptions of additional products;
  • Set the price formation to products with additional items (separate prices for all products or common price formed by the total cost);
  • Additional goods and the main product can be bundled together when the customer adds them to the cart;
  • Products with options and combinations can be attached to the main item as additional ones;
  • You can add additional items even to the product variations;
  • The flexible discount system for additional products;
  • Make additional items the necessary ones, when customer buys the main product;
  • Configure this add-on individually for each storefront on the Ultimate platform;
  • Vendors on the Multi-Vendor platform can attach additional products to their own goods;
  • Fully compatible with Uni and Upi themes;

Hello Cart-Power,

The layout is not completely correct in the "big picuture" template. Also product-image is missing there.

Please have a check.

Hello Cart-Power,

Solved, with some custom css changes.

In clean CS-MV-4.3.4 store css is correct, but product-images are invisible. But very easy to solve.

A few questions:

1. Will this integrate seamlessly with the eBay addon.

I imagine, to do this, one would need to be able to create Option Combinations for the Main Product, that include options from the secondary products in the package. Which leads me to the next Q.

2. Can Option Combinations for the Main Product, be created from secondary product options.

... it does get complicated.

The add-on is working as following: It is adding additional product to cart as a regular product. Everything is working like in default CS-Cart, when you add to separate products. The only thing is that these products are tied together. So, it will work just fine with all default CS-Cart export systems.

>> Can Option Combinations for the Main Product, be created from secondary product options.

It is not possible with this add-on and it is not possible with default CS-Cart functionality. There is no way to set any dependency between options of one product with the other without specific custom development.

We can develop necessary functionality for you. Just contact us on sales@cart-power.com and we will be happy to help.

Thank you.

Thanks Cart-Power.

Yes, I figured it currently could not do this. Perhaps this is something that could be considered in future.

There are three important functions we need.

1. Product Packages - Tick

2. eBay Synchronization .... almost Tick

3. For the Product Packages addon and the eBay Sync addon to work together.

We may consider custom work regarding this, however, I feel that we are not the only cscart users that are selling packages online and need sync with eBay.. Its all about "Joining the Dots". I understand that creating Option combinations between products is not part of the cscart architecture, thus I think perhaps if there was a "Package Combinations" or "eBay Combinations" function to this Addon, separate to the standard product OC's. The Package Combinations would apply to the Package only, and would need to override the OCs of the main product, at least for eBay product uploads and eBay order downloads and optionally in csc storefront also.

Anyway, there seems to be some issues still with the 4.3.5 update, so will wait until at least 4.3.6 before installing any more addons.

Dear friends!

We are glad to inform you that we have added a new setting that allows to choose for how mwny columns the additional products will be divided into.

This setting can be configured for the store or for the each product separately. It will be very helpful for attractive product page configuration.

Also, please, keep in mind that all problems with Big template product page template have been solved.

Thank you.

Dear friends!
We are glad to inform you that the Additional products add-on has been successfully tested in new CS-Cart 4.3.8.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

We connect additional products to the main and it is good, but in admin panel (in the order) we can't see this connection. They goes like different products.

For example, two products have the same accessories, how we can understand which accessories was ordered directly to this product and not the other?

Hello!

Yes, this connection is not displayed in the order details page now. We check what can be done and try to add this functionality in one of the future add-on releases.

Best regards,

I second this, It will be important for us to see the connection of Packaged product to each main product.

Important for Pic-n-Pack when one customer orders different Main Products that have common Package product options.

Dear Friends,
We are happy to inform you that our Additional products add-on is fully compatible with CS-Cart 4.4.2
Feel free to contact us if any questions arise.
Best regards,

P.S. You can try the functionality of this add-on in our demo-store.

Over a few years I have bought several add-ons and had customization done by Cart-Power. They used to be responsive and do good work.

I recently bought this add-on for my 4.5.2 store running UniTheme.

It would not run - php error. Support said it was the wrong version that had been accidentally uploaded to their server.

Re-installed and had another php error

They worked on it some more and got it to load. But it didn't have any of the adjustments for templates, etc.

They worked on it some more and got them to work, but the price, spacing, grid, etc wasn't working bvery well. It looked terrible in UniTheme.

They then said they had it fixed. I tried enabling the add-on. It came back with an error message that some part couldn't be found but it seemed to load. However the site crawled to a stop and wouldn't load. I uninstalled it and cleared cache and the site came back up.

I've asked for a refund, this is useless, doesn't look or perform anywhere near what was advertised.

I cannot recommend buying any add-ons from them. It's too bad, they had a lot of good ideas.

Hello!

Thank you for the message and your oopinion. Sorry to hear that you have bad experience working with us. We always on imporving our services and our add-ons. We check our add-ons carefully in the clean installation, but I am afraid it is is impossible to guarantee the add-on compatibility with the some other add-ons, modifications, etc.

Best regards,
