In Topic: Possible to have multiple sites but only 1 databse?

14 December 2009 - 11:17 PM

As many of you who have been following this thread know, I posted the response that I received from cscart about a custom mod in regards to this.

As a follow-up, I asked Alex to view this thread so as to show him how much interest there was in this feature. He should be congratulated for doing so as Struck has said.

I think there is a lesson for all of us here...the developers just need a little push when it comes to knowing what the users want...in the future I think we need to let them know when a thread needs there attention.

And please don't misunderstand me here, I'm not looking for credit for Alex's response, I just making a general comment that could help all cscarters.

A mod will not suffice for this feature. It is against the license agreement to do this with one license. You will still need to purchase two licenses for two installs.


I not sure you understand, we are not talking about two installs, we are talking about one install, but separate storefronts.

Please read again the reply I posted from Alex at cs-cart...he calls it a mod....
"Modification of such complexity will cost from USD 2000 depending on details and your specific business needs which should be discussed with our quote manager."

And indicates that only one license is required...
"If you would like to proceed with the project it is necessary to purchase the CS-Cart license which costs USD 265."

plumbingdeals,

This is something that I have really been interested in. If we can get a group of people to split the 2,000 it would be worth it.

We just need the people who are interested in this to put their money where their mouth is.

I am willing to put up $500 for this. Now just 3 more people! :)

Adam,

That's something to consider...
Perhaps we should start a poll and see who would be interested?!

BTW the way, I e-mailed Sno about this a few days ago, but he has not responded yet.

And as Struck says, the key is a single Admin

In Topic: modify data feed adon to export links ?

ok...dumb questions, as i have looked at this but not tried it yet....

I see that you can map fields for this, and specify image directory, so I assume you've tried and/or done this...

I hope this addon works, as it is one the features that is VERY important to our ongoing consideration of purchasing cs-cart.

We have also done MANY hours of research for this, and other than Magento, there is no low cost alternative, perhaps Viart ( which has it's own issues!)

Cs-cart used to have a mall feature, which they no longer offer, but.......

I e-mail Cs-cart with this very question yesterday, and received the following replies...

"Thank you for your interest in CS-Cart Shopping Cart software.

My name is Alexander Shabaev, I am the Senior Sales Executive at CS-Cart.com.

I will be glad to answer your questions.

CS-Mall as well as other multi-store options are planned to be added in future but the implementation date has not been set yet and now I cannot say exactly when it can happen. If you are interested in it, we can develop the features in questions for you in the framework of our paid custom development service.

You can provide me with a detailed description of the required functionality so that we could pre-estimate the project.

Our company, the first-hand developer of CS-Cart Shopping Cart software, offers full range of custom development and web design services and our specialists can build a web store of any complexity for you. We will be happy to work on your project to turn your website into a dynamic quotation/shopping system with required design and functionality.

Feel free to contact me if you have other questions.
I will be glad to help.

To which we responded with....

"Thanks for getting back to me.

We are looking for a cart that will allow us to operate any number of e-commerce sites from a single admin.

It would need to allow us to choose which products would appear in which store, as well as each store to have it's own look (template).

These are the basic requirements we need."

And the reply....

"Thank you for your reply and the information.

We have pre-estimated realization of the required functionality and now I can name an approximate price for addition of the ability to manage several web stores via one admin panel.

Modification of such complexity will cost from USD 2000 depending on details and your specific business needs which should be discussed with our quote manager.

Please note that due to the highest popularity of our custom development service and work pressure as a result, we will be able to start working on the project in two weeks after the payment is made and it will take us around two - three weeks to complete the task.

If you would like to proceed with the project it is necessary to purchase the CS-Cart license which costs USD 265. You can order it on the following page of our website:

https://www.cs-cart.com/order_now.html

As soon as the license is bought, you will be able to discuss the details of the project with our specialists directly and they will provide the exact quote.

And in case you are not satisfied with our software or conditions of rendering our custom development service, you will be able to request a refund as we provide 30-day money back guarantee for all purchased products and services.

For more information on our refund policy, please refer to the following page of our website:

https://www.cs-cart....money-back.html

Please do not hesitate to contact me if any questions arise.
I am always ready to assist."

So....more than we are ready to spend at this point, but at least it gives us, and everyone else and idea.

BTW, from searching the cscart forums, this appears to be the standard response for the last bit of time.
