The e-commerce.

what essential contributions should be added


Recommended Posts

I realize this is such a broad question it's not entirely appropriate for osC. But I'd like to know if there are contribs that are completely necessary additions to the basic install (of 2.2, let's say). I've installed some based on my needs, but are many aspects of ecommerce I'm unaware of :blink: . There's network stuff, there's store admin stuff, and there's what the customer sees. I'd like to get this all in one place... it may end up being a repeat of the list of things that will be included in the next version of osC, but then again, it might not.


To narrow it down, let's assume we're talking a normal retail store selling material objects which have attributes. You want the search engines to find you. You accept paypal, some credit card, and money orders. Assume you have your tax rates set correctly, and you need reports to pay Uncle Sam or whoever your Uncle is.


To start the list, here is what I've gleaned from reading this site:


Header Tags (for search engines)

Admin Login (several choices, to protect your admin screen)

Easy Populate (organisation of your products/attributes)

Paypal IPN (to fix the paypal bug)

Margin Report (I like it, personally, for the tax report, maybe there's a better one?)

Manufacturer Email (notify your vendors when orders are placed)


Anything missing?

I'm sure you've seen it, but there is also a related thread here:




Some of our favorites:


MaxMind for heads-ups on fraudulent orders

Attributes Sort

Down for Maintenance

Review Approval System


No I haven't, thanks for the link!

The search function on this board is very pukeful. Too many results, and the 4-character minimum on words is just plain stoopid.

Top of my list is Recover Cart Sales

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here
