Options Not Accounted For When Calculating % Shipping

05 June 2014 - 02:52 PM

Running multi-vendor 4.0x and vendors have created products with options that impact the final cost of a product (either add to - or subtract from - total price depending on the variant a customer selects).

When these product are added to a cart, shipping (calculated as a percent of the product cost), does not take into account the options modified price. Cart continues to calculate based on the original, unmodified price of the product.

Bug? Configuration issue?

"Help me Obi-wan, you're my one and only hope"…

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this.

Vendor Level Statistics/analytics?

30 May 2014 - 03:59 PM

Are there any solutions for offering vendor-specific site analytic/statistic breakouts?

The built in Statistic addon only seems to offer simple site-wide visitor statistics, and I often see it recommended to turn it off when optimizing the site load times.

It's the first question our vendors ask after we opened the store, and we're not even sure if it's possible or would require too much overhead…but thought I'd see if anyone has heard of anything.

Thanks in advance!

Looking For Developers?

21 May 2014 - 01:37 PM

We're running a multi-vendor store, and as some of you may know, there are many features and functions that need "tweaking" to put them on par with other, well established multi-vendor environments.

If one was looking for a regular relationship with a developer who understands the issues specific to CS-Cart, where might one look? SimTechDev is great, but the 24 hour turnaround is tough sometimes…

thanks in advance

Vendor Search

07 May 2014 - 03:52 PM

Running multivendor with a large number of vendors (400+).

While it's possible to use advanced search to locate a vendor, it's kludgey and not customer friendly, and lost among the myriad options in the layout.

Would it be possible to repurpose the current text search tpl to search vendor name records and repeat on the vendors page?

Thanks for any insight you can offer.

Restoring Newer Records To An Older Version Of Database

03 May 2014 - 05:14 PM

Admin-ing a multi-vendor system, and found vendors will still adding products to a category no longer in use, even though it was hidden. So from the categories set-up page, we deleted the category.

Little did we know this will also delete the underlying products! Even products that belong to other categories. Gone, and their product shots too.

We didn't catch it for a few hours, so in the meantime we had other new records added to the database and file system.

Now we're restoring from our last backup, and trying to figure out how to restore the additions made since the category deletion.

Is there a process for restoring new records to an older version of the database? Doing a diff on the tables is not straightforward because of the way the database repurposes deleted records.

CS-Cart definitely needs to add some kind of warning dialog to the delete categories command!
