  1. Nice but the colour scheme is a bit clashy. The green should be dark, and preferably blue or black or something, but whatever it is, it needs to be darker, especially seeing as it has lots of bright logos in the foreground. The idyllic scene photo needs to be higher resolution too, and perhaps more relevant e.g. show somebody cycling on the bridge. Also the turquoise background needs to be darker and preferably a dark blue or black. Also the font needs to be larger so that people can actually read the iems in the side menus and their pricing. Just saying! All the best though, seriously. Oh and in fact, make the idyllic scene way way way smaller, and vertically narrower, so that it's more like a banner, because otherwise, people will not see a bike on the first screenload, you know?

    I can't see it sorry!
  3. Nice, looks very tidy. If l may be so bold: l don't like the PayPal (or any) popup, may as well be part of the actual page rather than a popup but apart from that it's really cool!
  4. Hi there, I have in mind the "All in one shipping" extension but l didn't want to post under that extension in the extensions forum, because the extension itself and queries about it, are multi-faceted and so it would be hard for people to get the relevant info. Feel free to merge with the extension thread though, if you really feel it's better over there than an independent thread. SO anyway: - Can l store my shipping rates as an excel file, and hence upload the rates via admin control panel, so that they would appear in my (for example) the "All in one shipping" extension? - If so, is there a template spreadsheet l can work with? - If not then why not?! :) By the way, when l download an extension, do l only download the topmost zip folder, or am l meant to download the entire array? I thought the entire array were the releases for that version, as opposed to constituting an entire version.
  5. Thanks buddy, l think l will go with that. The pricing can't go wrong if l set them all manually, and hopefully the rate table l construct will be transferrable so that l can set up a zillion other carts. Shipping is one of the major headaches to overcome so a transferrable spreadsheet rate table would be ace.
  6. Hi there Al, l spoke with P2G and they say the don't support CubeCart any longer. For shame. Maybe you could pull a few strings and get them back onboard. I think it's best if l just manually input all my rates and update every 3 years. I shall now set about constructing a rate table. It'll certainly be more flexible than letting another company call the shots even if it's an aggregator. Just a lot of hard work that's all! But l've decided, once l have the rates in a spreadsheet, they might be transferrable. I shall now see if l can set them up via spreadsheet, to the "All in one shipping" extension instead.
  7. Any suggestions for a shipping option that you can personally vouch for? I'm looking for one that: - Works - Works - Charges reasonable rates for the end user - Prevents the end user from booking collections from my address (l'm not there 9am to 5pm, and the chances are the courier will arrive at 9:15am, l have enough trouble organising stuff when l myself book a collection from my premises, it'll be a nightmare if l let others book collections) - Works
  8. Provisionally: It would appear that Parcel2Go do not support CubeCart. Quite sad really. I shall try to ask Parcel2Go more about it in the daytime. Clearly they did once support it.
  9. Hi there, does anybody know how to make this work? It asks for an API key, how do l get the API key? Is the absence of an API key preventing the Parcel2Go shipping options from displaying? Currently l have nothing by way of shopping carts.
  10. Full disclosure: I haven't yet deployed my cart with shipping options or anything, just managed to get the inventory up that's all. Idea: secretly categorise different clubs as different parcel sizes? For each parcel size class, you can put in the actual weight of the item, and base your shipping costs on the weight alone. Just putting that out there ...
  11. >>>> Ok thanks. I have solved it your way. When exporting to CSV, l have now selected: "Quote all text cells" and that has done the trick. >>>> That has also solved the "curious bug" mentioned in my previous post in red font. >>>> As for the "Condition" labels not appearing, please let it be known that the instructional table here: https://support.cubecart.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/32/41/how-do-i-use-the-bulk-product-import-tool gives the example condition "New" with a capital N. Surprised nobody's caught that. I guess you have a huge untapped market there, for people that deal with bulk uploads i.e. people mirroring their eBay inventory? Because nobody has picked up on this flaw with bulk uploading via spreadsheeet and the example showing a capital N for New.
  12. Weird, l checked and it wasn't visible. When l go here: https://www.cubecart.com/extensions It seems only the displayed extensions are the ones available. I see all the options now, thanks!!!!!!
  13. Hello, unsure about "admin, Store Settings, Features tab, Sales Mode and Global Percentage Discount. " EDIT: You mean this to be a path. OK l checked, and Sales Mode was "Per product", Global percentage discount blank, number of sale items to display: 10. It makes not a whit of difference that l do the following: Let me explain: I downloaded the sample inventory. From that, l created an inventory upload template, based on a few hints here and there to fill in the blank columns. One of the fields was "Sale Price" which is not the same as "Price". Sale Price, you may recall, refers to the promo price. I left that blank, unfilled. CubeCart said "Oh hello, this means you want to give it all away for free!" Had l entered £0.00 in that column, CubeCart could legit say that, otherwise it had no right to assume. I've had to reupload everything (not too hard actually, somehow there must have been "memory" of my previous inventory). This time, l completely omitted the "Sale Price" column, just to be sure, though maybe if l included it, l could have just left it on "Ignore" when matching it up to the options on the pulldown menu in control panel. However, l still saw on intermittent "Sale" lists on the shop storefront, that all of my items were discounted to £0.00. I reuploaded the entire inventory, including the "Sale Price" column, but l selected to ignore it via the control panel pulldown menu. Still same problem. On intermittent "Sale" lists on the shop storefront, some - presumably all - of my items were discounted to £0.00. Moreover, there's no way to access the "Sale" and "Featured" and "Newly Listed" lists via the default shop template. I have now set the Sales Mode to "Disabled". Maybe it was remembering my very very very first upload, where l had a blank Sale Price column? And subsequent reuploads (having deleted entire inventory) did not un-forget that? I believe this has solved the problem. Curious bug: Meta Description column: if there's a semicolon in this column, the row in question gets shifted to the right thereafter, because whatever is after that semicolon goes into the next column along on that row. Another problem: Condition labels aren't displaying. I have most items set to "Used" but in the "Specification" window, the condition field is blank. Please can you help?
  14. Will it ever be possible to: - Tie in to an existing courier aggregator site e.g. Parcel2Go, at checkout? - So, the customer gets an applet representing a miniaturised version of the smorgasboard of couriers that Parcel2Go offers? - That way, customer chooses their own courier and tariff (unless YOU have said no to some couriers because they are physically nowhere near you for you to drop a parcel off with them, for example) - And of course YOU get to add a premium for the labour and packaging materials - Good thing is: full transparency with costs, and instant global reach without wondering if the grass is greener on the other side, because you're now no longer tied to one courier, you have many couriers to offer your customer - Note: l haven't yet set up my payments and couriers so maybe this is an irrelevant topic
