#295648 Company Name Not Showing On Invoices

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 15 February 2018 - 02:54 PM

I finally got it to work but it had to be...

{{u.b_Company}}

And had to be a capital "C" in company

 

u.b_Company for billing

and

u.s_Company for shipping

 

Also this is a fresh install of Cs-Cart.... And no custom fields.  All Default just enabled in

Admin//Profile Fields




#244225 Sales Performance Of 4.x.x Compared To 2.x.x

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 29 February 2016 - 02:04 PM

We upgraded to V4 mid last year from V2.2.5.   Our sales have dropped in half.  We still have not been able to figure it out. I believe V4 has just had way to many bugs to fight along the way.  While they are getting them worked out its taking way to long. Maybe and hopefully we'll get back to where we were in sales 2 years ago.  Cs-Cart has never released a stable bug free version in the last 2 years.  They just keep adding features and re-designs of their own software creating more and more issues.  Just look and the list of fixes due to come out in V4.3.6.  While we are still loyal to Cs-Cart I hope someday we can get to a stable bug free release.

 

Just Our $0.02

#242966 Does Cs-Cart Have A Loyalty Program / Rewards Function?

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 14 February 2016 - 11:06 PM

A loyalty or rewards program drives customers to spend more on our websites and increases the number of orders and attracts new customers.

When I first informed about CS-Cart features with CS-Cart support they mentioned that this was included. But as far as I can see there are only promotions, but not rewards.

 

For example:

I would like to reward customers who refer other customers. For example by giving them $5 credit plus 5% ongoing credit for everything their referrals buy.

 

I would like to reward customers who reorder. For example by giving them 5% discount on their next order. This motivates them to come back.

 

I am sure there are many ways that webmasters would use a loyalty program.

 

Is such functionality available?

 

Here is the addon we use..  Works awesome..  Generates a lot of sales...

#233353 Order Feedback Through Email

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 22 October 2015 - 02:53 PM

We have to also suggest tbirnseth  EZ Auto mailer Addon..   We've had it for years..  We send a followup email 12 days after order is shipped asking for reviews and a 30 day email reminding customers of their earned reward points.  Also a 90 day followup telling them to come back and check out whats new..   It generates 30% of our monthly sales along with creating long time returning customers.   Worth every penny...  Crazy not to have this addon..




#233352 Feedback Wanted From Cs-Cart Theme Developers

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 22 October 2015 - 02:48 PM

This all sounds good but if Cs-Cart cant fix their upgrade process its all for nothing..  We customize our theme with the built in theme editor yet every upgrade all of our layout and blocks are all messed up and have to redo it all again..

#217919 What To Expect From A New Site?

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 09 June 2015 - 12:13 AM

Actually, I just went to Amazon's site. It works the same as mine. No green bar or padlock when you first go there. Probably when you go to buy it will initiate the SSL. Sites always used to work this way. It's only recently that I've seen people adding SSL to the whole site... even for simple browsing of the marketplace. But, as you said, perhaps Google is wanting it for everything now. I did think there was some disadvantage to it... not sure what the disadvantage is though. I thought it was speed.


Back in the day SSL certs were very slow.. Now a days its not an issue. We've tested it both ways with no difference in site speed.. Amazon is migrating over to a fully secured site by the end of July.. As you can imagine its a much bigger ordeal for them.
In my opinion and unfortunately, Google is God in the internet world.. And those who ignore and disregard that suffer long term. Our website is our life line. It pays our bills therefore we cannot ignore what they want.. Weather we want to agree or not.. That's why when they say jump we say hi high...


#217908 Speed Boost In Cs-Cart 4.3.1 Beta

#217570 CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.3.1 Released

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 05 June 2015 - 09:32 PM

Guys, quit pushing them on timing! Every time you add pressure for something to happen inside some given time frame all you are doing is applying pressure to reduced quality. Let them do their jobs. They gave an estimate of end of week. They missed (shit happens in software development). The good news is that they are aware that they still have work to do. Please let them do it.

In addition, the longer 4.3.1 is out there, the more bugs will surface and they will have more opportunity to address them in 4.3.2. Please be patient.

I watch the same cycle over and over. And then you wonder why they are reluctant to commit to dates of releases. Software is a fluid thing. And sometimes, development/defect correction is just unpredictable or the complexity of a solution was greater than estimated.


Agreed... Give them some time.. The more bugs fixed now the less problems later...
Lets shoot for a bug free release.. LOL... Keep up the good work Cs-Cart...


#216787 Get Maximum out of 4.3.1: The Best Server Configuration.

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 01 June 2015 - 03:52 PM

Here are the errors in the log..

PHP Fatal error:  Class 'Redis' not found in /*****/***/public_html/dev/app/Tygh/Backend/Session/Redis.php on line 200
PHP Notice:  Undefined offset: 6 in /*****/***/public_html/dev/app/functions/fn.ultimate.php on line 1134
PHP Notice:  unserialize(): Error at offset 0 of 344 bytes in /*****/***/public_html/dev/app/functions/fn.cart.php on line 1871


All errors have been resolved....

We are finding that using redis is actually slower than database for $config['session_backend'] =
Actually 1 second slower on page load times...


#213824 CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.3.1 Released

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 08 May 2015 - 09:45 PM

OK So I have installed a test site to get playing with this new version. Google page speed results however are not as good as your demo site - is there some optimal server configuration to now use?

I'm getting 80/100 for mobile and 89/100 for desktop as supposed to 87/100 and 95/100 for your demo site?

Still a good improvement though...

#203932 New CS-Cart Website Design

Posted by CarStickersDecals on 30 January 2015 - 04:18 PM

spend less time working on your site and spend more time making a stable solution?


Have to second this. Lets get a stable version going first. Instead you just keep building and adding new features that create more headaches instead of releasing a bug free version..
