In Topic: CS-CART and implimetation of the 'cookie' regulations

25 May 2012 - 07:03 AM

Just seen a piece on the BBC news about this (so there might be a deluge of enquires regarding this matter).

Any update on the exact definition of what is cover by the new regs?

Does anyone have a link to further info on this?

I would save up the money and get something like Mailware Inventory and Mail Order Manger. I have used it in the past. When an order is placed the stock is checked, if you have the item in stock a pick ticket will be printed. Once the order has been picked, you process the credit card. If the credit card goes through it will print a label. If the item is not in stock it will add it to a purchase order that you can print out at anytime. If the credit card gets denied for any reason it will notify you and not let you print out a label. When you receive your inventory in to the system it automatically fills any orders that are open so you really don't have to pay attention to anything other than managing your site. It send out order confirmations, if you have a product that won't come in for a week it will send out an email to the customer notifying them of there expected ship date (if you want it to ). It has accounting and much more.

There is another one called stone edge order manager, less money but I am not familiar with it. I think it does the same thing.

Cool - I'll take a look.

I guess there are various way that these apps can be configured.

One question, when you say "When an order is placed the stock is checked" does this mean that CS can feed in to the app?

I suggest doing what I'm doing and have a custom add-on created to handle this. A less expensive
solution might be to write some sql queries that update inventory on a schedule basis. I use
navicat mysql to handle scheduled database updates to match up with our pos system on other
shopping carts we have used in the past but im having a complex add-on written right now that
should handle all that with cs-cart.

Thanks for the reply Soulsurvivor.

Cost isn't too much of an issue unless we are talking big money. If less than a £1,000 (or a little more) it might be something I can look at. What is the ball part figure, are you able to tell me.
