Everything the shop needs, is built into a single WebPlus WPP, so no worries about add-ins not working or links to other widgets or embedded tools.
This also means that you customise absolutely any element, be it a visual change or a background code change.
It is in the bag! truly is a Shop in a single bag!
You could also ask for a customised version that meets your specifications if required.
All the necessary code for the system to operate effectively, has already been written for you, so need for any programming or code writing on your part.
The system will work 'Out of the Box' after you have set a few parameters and uploaded a few support files.
There is no complicated set-up to worry about.
There are no restrictions on changing the code..
Once you have purchased the System Template for a once only fee, there are no monthly fees at all.
With no monthly fees you are set for life, nothing else to lay out to keep your shop open.
And if the system is enhanced at any time you get the updates FREE!.
Not only are there NO monthly fees, but you can use the System on TWO of your personal sites. Even better value for money!
If you create sites for third parties (clients) you can also get a re-seller license which allows you to use the system on a selected number of client sites without the need to purchase a seperate license for each seat.
For more info on re-seller licences please email me here
There are NO restrictions on how many products you can have in your product library, only any limits imposed by your host on the size of your database.
Products can be 'switched off' at any time making them un-available in the shop by simply changing one drop-down box, either because there is no imminent stock supplies, or you just don't want it in the shop for a while. You can then switch it back on at any time.
Here you can manage the system parameters easily, add and edit products, apply special offers and customer loyalty offers, manage stock levels etc.
Management of orders and invoices also included.
Tax rates can be changed system wide in a single click. You can have an unlimited number of tax rates, and the Tax rate can be set at different rates per product.
If you change a tax rate, (because the government tells you to), every product already in the system will automatically be updated, even if you have in-activated the product.
All future product additions will only have the new tax rates offered when they are added.
You can also set a list of Countries where your Tax rates should be applied to. If a customer from a Country not in the list of 'taxable' countries makes a purchase, all taxes will be removed at checkout.
You can add an unlimited number of 'Special Offer' phrases that are added to the product displays in the shop for the relevant products, such as SALE!, Special Price, Limited Offer etc.
When you add a Special Offer to a product, you also add the Normal Price, a Ribbon(Grid View) or Corner Slash(List View) is automatically added to the product listing with appropriate words. e.g. If the phrase has the word sale in it, a 'SALE!' ribbon/slash is added, if it has the word price in the phrase then a 'Special Price' ribbon/slash is added etc.
Digital Downloads are supported for both paid and free items.
Digital products are not restricted by any Country Shipping settings you make, they are valid for every country. If a visitor from a country that you do not ship to adds physical products and digital downloads to their bag, they will be asked to remove the physical products but can leave the digital products.
The download files will be made available to them on the thankyou page after payment. If the items are all free items the PayPal gateway will automatically be skipped and they will be taken to the thank you and download page.
You can add a product image and it can be updated at any time. Images uploaded can be selected from the image library and added to any product.
Image types can be png, jpg or gif and are automatically resized when displayed for the thumbnail, the full size image can be viewed by clicking the image on the shop page and will appear in a pop-up box together with the product description.
You can add as many Product Categories and Groups as you like. Categories are organised in Groups and are displayed on the left of the product pages where users can select a category to view. They will also appear in the drop down menu and can be selected from there also.

On the first order by your customer an account is automatically set up at checkout, an email is sent to the customer confirming their account.
The next time a returning Customer places an order, they do not have to enter their details again, the details are automatically retrieved and presented to them so that they can make any required changes.
When a Customer has placed their first order, they are automatically added to the Customer Loyalty Programme.
On selected products you can add a discount percentage for Customers in the loyalty programme (Optional).
If the Customer is logged in the Loyalty discounts will be displayed with the products. If the Customer gets to the checkout and then logs in the bag will automatically be re-calculated to include any loyalty discounts that are applicable.
You can set the shipping rates by product as a fixed amount, or based on weight or volume.
Each individual products shipping is calculated based on the relevant criteria and the bag total is then either increased to the minimum shipping cost (if set) or capped at the maximum shipping cost (if set).
If the Customer's Country is one that attracts a Surcharge then the Surcharge is added at the checkout and is in additional to any shipping costs calculated as above.
You can set a minimum and maximum shipping cost if desired. If set the shipping costs will automatically be either increased to the minimum (if below it) or decreased to the maximum (if above it). Any surcharges will be applied to the resultant shipping amount.
A PDF Invoice is calculated at the point of checkout, which the Customer can preview and/or download.
After payment the PDF Invoice can again be viewed and/or downloaded. It can also be viewed by the system owner in the Management Console.
On completion of the order and payment an email is automatically triggered to the Customer with a copy of their PDF Invoice attached.
|The main products page can be viewed as a grid of 9 products per page,|

When you change your special offers this special offer block will update automatically.
When an item is flagged as a Special Offer, a ribbon(grid view) or corner flash(list view) will automatically be added to the Product Panel.
The wording etc. of the ribbon/flash will be determined by Key words in the special offer type, e.g. Sale, Offer, Price, Free Gift, Free Product etc. Download products will have a ribbon/flash added that indicates a digital product, if the digital product has a special offer on it the digital product ribbon/flash will be replaced with the offer ribbon/flash.
On the Customer account page the Customer can view all previous orders, in the Invoice PDF format, they can also download copies of the invoices, and check the status of all orders.
