2.- Installation
  • Download and unzip microCART.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:
    • microcart
    • microcart/photos
    • microcart/photos/thumbs
    • microcart/photos/tmp
    • microcart/editor/files
    • microcart/editor/flash
    • microcart/editor/media
    • microcart/editor/photos
    • microcart/pdf
    • microcart/fonts
    • microcart/images
  • Login to your admincp and import product-microcart.xml
3.- Configuration
  • First of all you need to setup microCART 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. Please note that, as a way to bypass the limitation of having vB editor in admincp, I've moved the product descriprion, system messages and agreements to fronend. But only those who can moderate can access this area, and only for modifying the text. Nothing more.
  • Setup Categories and Subcategories for your store.
  • Setup your Agreements (at least one)
  • 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.
  • To work properly with HTML editor you need to edit settings.php locating at: microcart/editor/assetmanager/ and set the corrects paths.
4.- Product Options (Configurations)

In version 1.0.3 has been added support for 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
  • Special (Bundle) price. Currently not in use
  • AddOns. Are products that someone can order in the same form (eg Installation, Brand Free etc).
  • Special Bundle. Currently not in use
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.- Friedly notes
  • Please let my copyright link in place. Thank you.
  • When rating, please remember that you're rating the script and not me as a person. Thank you.
  • Don't spam this thread with comments about my personality. Comment my work only. Thank you.
8.- Demo9.- Warning

The included HTML Editor is commercial, so you can use it ONLY within microCART directory.

So you are saying I still have to go in and enter rates for each state/country, correct?

If so, what is "AUTO SHIPPING CALCULATION"?

when someone buys a real product and you have the weight in it will work out the shipping costs from there location and the weight of the product.

I did post an example in a post a page or so back.

Just wondering... How would I go about creating a sidebar for this so it would display a pre-selected number of items that are available? The link in the Navbar is good but it's a bit obscure for the users on my site. They are not very internet savy. I'd like it to be known that I'm selling stuff other than in a forum post every so often.

Also, how about a vbAdvanced module?

I will be making a side block for this to show the latest products within the shop system.

As for vbadvanced would take some time before i make one for this system.

Question Buyers not sent email

When someone buys from the E-shop via Paypal and is successful, the invoice is marked as PAID by the system however, the buyer does not receive the email confirmation. By the way, the same thing happens if they pay offline although the invoice remains as UNPAID (correctly).

Is this caused by the Fsocket problem?

I have root access to our server and I can install it myself but is there any way I can check whether it is installed first or whether this is a problem with the cart?

Regards, Jeff.

Hi and thanks for a fantastic product. I would like to know if this product could handle event tickets sales. I would like to sell tickets for various organisers and they would have events up and down the country.
I'm guessing that the member would log in pay for the ticket and have a copy sent by email... can this product do that please?
Also I would like to buy a copy of this software but can't find it for sale on your commercial site. Can you help me with that too?
Thanks

hi micheal,

an issue of the stock level ...

- if the amount of my stock of a product is 3
- when i add the product into my cart, then at the beginning I got 1 in my cart
- if I want to buy the product 3 times, so I did choose the amount to 3, but it change automatically back to 1. The maximum number I can choose is 2
- then I have to go to the products details and add the last one into my cart. This is the only way to get the last one. But in my cart, the product list will be shown like in the picture.

How can these 2 problems be fixed ?

I know, my english is terrible.

Hi micheal,

More questions . I think it is very useful if the admin can print the invoice of each transaction in the admincp. Is it possible, that you'll add the option "view PDF" into the action field?

I live in Germany and we have ö ä ü and we use Euro ....

if I look at my invoice in the frontend in my account, the Euro symbol and "München" is shown as in the issue2.jpg.

in General Options of microcart .. my charset is "utf-8" ... there was no problem withe the charset when I use microcart 1.1.1.


greeting
Hoan

Yes you can sell anything you like with this system.
As for sending the tickets to them with an email this is not added into the system and once you have got payment you could send them the ticket.

I will sort out the problem with the charset and will also add a print button to the admincp invoices.

could you add in a PM notification to a selectable admin when a new order is created?

and is there a paid version where I could take your copyright off?

This is a superior product... I love it.
We use Paypal a lot here in the UK because it is the cheapest gateway for payment. I set up my paypal email address in the admin section and tried a test purchase.
I noticed that after a member has filled in the personal details for the sale and click on check out they are redirected to PayPal. Here they are asked to either log in or fill out the exact same details as they did on the VB site. Can the personal details be populated to the PayPal checkout?
Also is there any way to set up either "express check out" or "Website payment Pro" with PayPal. Both need to have API's set up with the cart but members who buy don't actually leave the site and everything integrates very well.
I'll happily pay for this extra integration if need be

This is a wonderful script and I would like to thank you for ALL of your hard work and dedication to supporting it... Thank You!
