eCommerce

The complete eCommerce solution for vBulletin 4.2.2+
Supports Downloadable Products, Physical Products, Subscriptions, Services
Fully compatible with EU directive for collecting EU VAT from EU Citizens


I'm offering my hard work for free, without even a single copyright line in footer, expecting that some of you will appreciate the time that I spent for coding it and they will donate something.
Version 2.1.2 is the Commercial version which among other great features it has:
  • No Copyright link
  • Supports Donations
  • Site Reviews
  • Contact Us per product
  • .......and many more features that really I don't remember them.
eCommerce is a fully featured Shopping Cart for vBulletin 4.x, with support for Downloadable & Pysical Products, Subscriptions and Services, without missing any feature even from commercial scripts. Installation is very easy, you just need sometime for the initial configuration. Last but not least eCommerce is currently the only cart available for vB4 which supports EU VAT to fullfill with EU directive for online sales (valid since Jan 1st, 2015). Going one step ahead it auto validates Business EU VAT id to exclude them of paying VAT.

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***

Since version 1.8.4 there is also a PRO version available at my site. Current Commercial version: 2.1.1


DEMO: http://www.teriakis.com/vb423/cart.php
Demo Accounts:
demouser1 / demopass1
demouser2 / demopass2
demouser3 / demopass3
Please note that Taxes and Shipping are not enabled in the demo. You can order the demo product with 0 price to be able to check the Client area.


*** ATTENTION ***
  1. Report any Bug only on the link above. Reporting Bugs here will be ignored. This thread should be ONLY for questions. Thank you.
  2. eCommerce is an update of microCART, with fixed all bugs that I found, many design issues corrected, and some new features added (the most important is the support for EU VAT). I decided to release a new product with different name as microCART had 2 versions (Lite and Pro) and I wanted to avoid system mess. Please note that I've the rights to release this addon. Actually the original code was mine.
1.- Highlights
  • Supports Downloadable products
  • Supports Physical products too!!
  • Supports Subscriptions (Even Reccuring)
  • Supports Services
  • Ability to upgrade usergroup per product
  • Unlimited depth levels of categories
  • Unlimited Products
  • Supports Renewals
  • Ability to Add Orders manually
  • Accept payments with PayPal, 2CO & ccBill (Credits for ccBill to kastak)
  • Supports AddOns
  • Support Product Option to Increase/Decrease the price
  • Unlimited Screenshoots per product
  • Unlimited Files per product, so the customers can download previous versions
  • Unlimited Agreements
  • Customers (and only those who have bought that product) can rate and review it.
  • Admin can turn On/Off the Reviews per product
  • Uses HTML Editor.
  • Unlimited Tax levels.
  • Shipping Zones with unlimited shipping choices per zone.
  • Supports Delivery locations (unlimited depth, eg Country, State, Area with different setup for Tax and Shipping per category.
  • Collect Customer details at Checkout.
  • Auto Tax calculation.
  • Auto Shipping calculation.
  • Supports PDF Invoice creation.
  • Since version 1.5.0 supports Donations with many featured
  • New in ver.1.6.0: Donation Form Generator for auto include in Forum sidebar or get the code and add it to any HTML page even in different website.
2.- Installation
  • Download and unzip eCommerce.zip file
  • Upload all the files in your site keeping the same structure. eg cart.php must be on the same level as your forum.php
  • CMOD 777 the directories:
    • ecommerce/photos
    • ecommerce/photos/categories
    • ecommerce/photos/medium
    • ecommerce/photos/thumbs
    • ecommerce/photos/tmp
    • ecommerce/pdf
    • ecommerce/pdf/fonts
    • ecommerce/pdf/images
  • Login to your admincp and import product-microcart.xml
3.- Configuration
  • First of all you need to setup eCommerce General Options. The most important option is to set the path to the directory where you'll store the files. For security reasons you must create a directory over the public area. Then write the full path in the options. Don't forget the trailing slash at the end. Example:
    • /home/username/downloads/
  • Setup Usergroup permissions. Available options are:
    • Can access the store
    • Can order
    • Can Moderate (for furthure use)
  • Setup Categories and Subcategories for your store.
  • Setup your Agreements (at least one)
  • Setup Taxes. Please note that since Jan 1st, 2015, you must collect EU VAT from your EU Clients even if your store is locating outside EU. If you follow this directive or not is not my problem.
  • Setup Locations and assign them Tax and Shipping (but offcourse you can let them to None).
  • Start adding products but from AddOns and Services. It will helps you to save time, as when at a later time you add a main product, you can choose the addons.
4.- Product Options (Configurations)

eCommerce supports configurable options. Not just simple text choices, but options that can increase/decrease the total price. That's why you need to pay extra attention on entering these options to avoid pricing mess.

First of all, you can find these options as "Extra Options" on the droplist on the right of each product (AdminCP). By choosing it you'll get a list of all available configurable options for the specific product. You can Edit and Delete it, or you can change the display order. Click "New Extra Option" to add one.

There is no need for explanation of title. Write there anything that you want. Examples of configuration options are: Color, Size, Ram, Hard disk etc. So let's write Size. In the box below you must add all the available options keeping the format:
Amount|Name

Examples:
  • 0|Normal : This option dosen't changes the product's price and it will appears as: Normal
  • 15.30|Large : This option increases the price by 15.30 and it will appears as: Large (+$15.30) ... The currency symbol is the one that you've setup. DON'T NEED TO ENTER CURRENCY SYMBOL HERE
  • -7.50|Mini : This option decreases the price by 7.50 and it will appears as: Mini (-$7.50). ONCE MORE: DONT ADD CURRENCY SYMBOL.
5.- Product Terminology
  • Price: Is the normal price that you're selling a product (eg 49.95)
  • Discount: Is the amount that you're giving as discount. eg if you place 4.95 here the price will appear as $49.95 $45.00
  • AddOns. Are products that someone can order in the same form (eg Installation, Brand Free etc).
6.- Understanding Shipping Zones

To understand Shipping fields (Base weight, Base fare, Extra weight, Extra fare), you must know how the companies (at least the most of them) are working. They're saying: Till 3 kilos the rate is $15. More than 3 kilos you must add $3 per 500gr (1/2 kilos). In this example you must setup:
  1. Base weight 3000 (in grammars) or 3 (in kilos)
  2. Base fare 15.00
  3. Extra weight 500 (in grammars) or 0.5 (in kilos)
  4. Extra fare 3.00
  5. Please note to use the same as the definied in the general option weight unit. Setting in options kgr and here grammars is the best way to mess your shop.
7.- SEO Friendly URLs

eCommerce supports htaccess type SEO friendly URLs. The types are:
  • store/1/my-category/ For Categories
  • product/1/my-product/ For Products
If you want to enable them:
  1. Upload .htaccess file to your forum directory
  2. If you already have a .htaccess file in your installation add the 2 lines belon on it.
  3. Enable SEO URLs in admincp-> eCommerce-> General Options

*** IMPORTANT ***
  • You can change the words store and product with your own but in this case you must change the words in the product options.
  • If you've the default .htaccess file that comes with vBulletin you need to add these 2 lines at the top, just after the line: RewriteEngine on
8.- Friedly notes
  • Please let my copyright link in place. Thank you.
I wish you a huge amount of sales !!

Nick is Christos from what I recall, needless to say if you're not happy with a coder and/or his products or services you should not be using them, if you do then the need to comment is no longer your prerogative - you can certainly still comment but we'll all just ignore it, the same as you should their mods due to the iffy'ness they've shown in the past if you feel that way.

Upgrade 1.2.0

I need to apologize for my childish mistake which caused problems and waste of time for you. In my effort to make the code more solid and understandable I remove all database version changes and I replaced them with a screendump from phpMyAdmin. At that point I did the mistake as I forgot to change the table prefix. Novice mistake but I did it.

I've released version 1.2.0 which will build the correct tables. To upgrade:

1.- Clicking Edit on the right of the product

2.- Replace the uninstall code with the code below.

3.- Unistall the product
4.- Import the new product-ecommerce.xml file.

Once again sorry for troubles,

Version 1.3.0

No. This time is not a bug fix update . Just added some design improvments that I found very useful for myself, hope that you'll also like them even if you'll not finally use them.
  1. As you maybe seen there was a global option to show the cart (options, addons and buynow button) above the tabs or as a seperate tab. This was good but not the best. Now I move this setting per product. So when you add a product you can decide if you want the cart above the tabs or as a seperate tab.
  2. The other improvment is on the view item page. As is now the page looks good if its a complete item with options, addons, links, screenshots, reviews etc. But what about if the item is something simple? eg Installation service... what reviews to show here, or what screenshots etc. That's why I build a new template which has a minimal interface. So, if you want for a specific product to use this minimalist template just select YES to "Use Simple Template?"
  3. This is a correction. I cached some missing template names.
To upgrade:
  1. Upload ecommerce_admin.php to admincp directory
  2. Upload functions.php to ecommerce/ directory
  3. Upload cart.php and clientarea.php to forum directory
  4. Import the product-ecommerce.xml
Thank you

Lovely mod, Nick. Downloaded and installed!!

I've an idea for your next iteration of the product. Drop shipped products, where you'd need to have:
forums own item code,
suppliers item code,
suppliers email address which is sent with the order once checkout is done,
forum sale price to customer,
forum cost price from supplier,
any configurable tax per item,
any configurable PayPal surcharge,
any configurable postage per item.

If you can add that, you'll have THE best forum shopping plugin around.

....lol... My dear Johnny, this should not be only the best forun shopping plugin but even the best PHP script at all

1.- Have forgot to write in details that comparing with micrCART I've added email templates for: New Order (Successful payment), New Order (Declined Payment), Invoice still unpaid (in case of declined payment), Renewal Reminder and Subscription expired. So it's easy to send a copy of them to someone else.

2.- What it means "forum" cost, sale etc?

3.- Tax per item is in my plans, but why shipping per item? Do you plan to ship item by item and not a parcel with all items?

4.- PayPal subcharge can also be add in the meaning: From xx to xxx price a standard amount and then a percentage for the rest. Or in the way that PayPal works, can't remember right now.

Haha! Touché!

1. If you can have each product send a mail to a different address, e.g. if we drop ship tyres and clothing, we'll have different suppliers for the tyres than we could for shirts.
So if we could have a supplier email that sent the following, and had it configurable per product.
Purchaser:
Address:
Items bought:

That way, the shop would automate a lot of the forum selling activities. I think a lot of forums use drop shipping.

2. Forum cost is the cost to us to buy the part. Example:
A shirt might cost us £4.50 to buy, but we sell it at £6.00 if the mail that's sent outputs both, it makes the accounting easier.

3. We have a wide range of product sizes - as mentioned, so shipping costs vary a lot for us.

4. I think PayPal charge 3 or 4%

Thanks!

I'll see what I can add in the next major release but I'm not promising anything. I don't expect to have more than 15 installations, not because the mod is not good, but because the vBulletin market is so small in nowadays. Even for other very good addons and not so specific in use like this, have no more than 20-25 installations. That said, I'll focus only to add features mainly for my own use, and secondary common for all uses.

Don't know how the field ecommerce left out in your user table while the table prefix was wrong before. Connect with phpMyAdmin and remove the field "ecommerce" from your TABLE_PREFIX.user table. Then import the product.

1.- Just seen that you're not using table prefix. In my opinion this is not wise.
2.- Check the table usergroup and NOT user.
