#350434 Cs Cart Needs To Modify The Vendors Plans System

Posted by ponloencasa on 14 June 2022 - 05:43 PM

Okay. I have been working with CS Cart for about 10 months now. I initially bought this system because in their ads they mentioned that it was an Amazon clone. I have sold with Amazon and at least the sales system is not even similar. For example, I have a huge problem with the seller plan system.
This system of plans is not effective at all, why? Simple, the plan system was created to charge sellers a fee or % for their sales or a fixed monthly payment. This is not practical at all and forces businesses to work under a method that may not be the most convenient, why? Because they are forcing the owners of the CS Cart platforms to work with fixed rates for categories and not variable rates for departments.

Let's say I have a restaurant dining department and a bakery department. Each of them has a different tax rate. Now, some restaurants sell cakes and if they are under a plan that only includes dinners, they cannot sell cakes and I cannot merge both categories into 1 single plan because they work with different tax percentages. The same happens with many businesses that sell products from different categories.

CS Cart should eliminate the plan system or at least create a mechanism that allows % tax to be applied to each category individually and that sellers can sell under any category freely, as Amazon does.


When you sell on Amazon, that you add a product and then choose the category, that category already has a % or rate established allowing sellers to freely put products in any department.


Now, how can I pass this feedback to CS Cart to see if they can improve this in the future?




#346286 Help With Website Global Filter To Show Products By Location

Posted by ponloencasa on 21 February 2022 - 05:21 PM

I need to know if it's possible to add to the home page a filter to show products in the whole website by Province.


I am providing some links to different websites where they have that feature. 


https://tiendalotengo.com/ (in this one, they use the map of Cuba as a filter. When you click in a province, the website updates and shows only products for that province)


https://www.supermar...rket23.com/en/ (in this one, you have to select next to category the location. Then you will see a small pop up windows that show you Province and Cities. When you select the Province and City, it will update the website and shows the products available for that place)


https://mallhabana.com/ (here right after you access to the website you will see a small windows that pop up asking your country. You have to select Cuba, and then it will ask you to provide the province and city. After that, the website will show only products available for that place)


Is this possible to do in CS Cart with the tools it has, or this require customization? In case that should be done by customization, how much could cost this job?

#343230 Help With Homepage Banners

Posted by ponloencasa on 20 October 2021 - 12:48 AM

I was able to do it, changing the type of banner from AB Advance Banner to Regular. For some reason, AB Advance Banners tend to move out of place.
