Question about affiliate


Guest

Recommended Posts

Questions:

 

1) How do I change the page title--where it says "OsCommerce" in the web browser? I'm not sure which file to edit.

 

2) I'm looking for a simple affiliate program. I've checked most of the old postings on this topic, but most involve Shareasale. I don't think I want to use Shareasale...I need something more basic.

 

Basically, when someone places an order at my store, I want them to be able to choose from a list of charities...and I will donate a portion of the profit to the charity they choose. Paypal doesn't have to actually pay them automatically with the transaction (I can cut a check manually every quarter). I am mainly looking for something that will allow a user do this, and I want to be notified of who they have chosen along with the order. Any ideas on the best/easiest way to do this?

 

THANKS!

:P Hi there! I'm no genius and I don't know anything about code or programing, in fact I'm working on my first website. But...here's an idea that may do what you need in the interim. Set-up a pull down of charity options from the admin pannel on a per item basis, the same as you would for size and color options. It's a cheap fix without code. OR... you could add a comment text in your check out pages that would let your customer name their charity of choice by entering it into their comments. I hope this helps for the time being! :blush:

I'm not an affiliate master so here is the answer to number 1.

 

You can edit this code in catalog/includes/languages/english.php

define('TITLE', 'osCommerce');

If you change the text in this one, it will do what you want.

 

It creates a dropdown at checkout, orginaly asking how the cutomer did hear about ur site, just change the text in the included text files and there u have it. (The options shown in the dropdown can be changed in the admin.)

 

 

How did u hear about us
