Alt Text On New Drag/drop Product Images

11 February 2019 - 09:02 PM

How is the "Alt" value set for images that are either uploaded or drag/dropped in the new image method in admin for product details?


Can't see where it can be set or edited.

Addon: Abandoned/active Cart Details

04 February 2019 - 09:41 PM

Improve your conversion rates by identifying where customers are leaving abandoned carts.  Is it the shipping step of checkout?  The product detail page?  How long ago did they leave?
This new addon extends the Active/Abandoned cart page by showing the idle time of active/abandoned carts as well as the last page visited by the customer.
This can be really helpful in determining issues related to conversions because you can see exactly where the customer exited your site.
Combined with the Abandoned Cart auto-mail event in our EZ Auto Mailer addon, you can ensure you are doing the most you can to identify and resolve any conversion issues on your site.

Product details can be found at: https://ez-ms.com/ez-cart-detail.html
Marketplace (when approved): https://marketplace....art-detail.html
At $24.99, this is the best insurance policy you can buy for the money.

Vendor Permissions For Addon

10 January 2019 - 07:26 PM

I'm a bit stumped.  On my development systems, all is well.  On one client's site, vendors can't access my license_keys addon.
I have the cscart_permissions table updated with manage_license_keys = Y
and I have an approprate app/addons/license_keys/schemas/permissions/vendor_multivendor.post.php file with content of:

$schema['controllers']['license_keys'] = array (
    'permissions' => true,
return $schema;

But for whatever reason, attempts to access the addon while in the context of a vendor fails with a 404.

Any thoughts/insights?
Yes, there is a related admin.post.php file in schema/permissions.

Abandoned Carts

22 December 2018 - 07:50 PM

Just a reminder that we added Abandoned Cart transactional emails to the  EZ Auto Mail addon back in April.  Older Auto Mail posts don't reference this.


You can set how long before an inactive cart is considered to be abandoned.  Email (with content of cart listed) is sent to customer encouraging them to return and complete their order.  You can add whatever text info you want to the email and make any offers you choose.


Note that "Events" that can have email automatically sent from  EZ Auto Mail addon are:

- Order placed - generally for review requests

- Order placed for amount greater than - special offer to come back for larger purchasers

- Order placed containing specific product(s) - Upsell for other products

- Order placed using specific payment method 

- New customer registration - offer a discount for next purchase

- Form submission - Provide automated response for things like sample requests or other feedback/info

- Abandoned cart notification


You can specify how long to delay sending the email for each type of event (other than abandoned carts which happen immediately when the queue is processed).  You can customize your own email templates, offer specific promotions, etc.  Each event can have it's own template or you can share templates across events. 


It's the time of year when many carts are abandoned so thought we'd give you a reminder that we added the abandoned cart capability back in April.
