Ok, I have installed yesterday OSC on my server and I am trying to modify it so it works for my printshop (not only printshop but it's the main workload).

 

1. I have to remove vendors / suppliers as we design and print jobs, not trading ready-made products. I need a) to remove the infobox and b) to remove the category "suppliers". How can I do that?

 

2. In many cases, a client shall need to upload an image (a logo or something) or a file ready to print. I can't find an add-on relative to that function. Any ideas?

 

3. I have been designing my website in the following manner: client designs / uploads / posts design brief --> (selects quantity if needed) --> driven to product page --> signs in / up --> pays. The basic function that OSC fullfills is SignIn/Up, Make payment and Reorder. The last part is the most problematic, as the customer might need different quantities (which means different price that doesn't change proportionally, e.g. 250 business cards are ? 19.95 when 500 are ? 29.95, not ? 39.90). Any ideas how I can put all this in reordering phase?

 

4. Does OSC software allow customers to leave a .php page, go to an .htm page by following a link placed in the .php page (e.g. to design business cards/letterheads etc.) and then return to the shopping cart to complete the order? Can I put links pointing to a page that e.g. initiates the design / upload / brief process in the product description page?

 

Ok, enough for now. If I get help with these topics I guess I can figure out solutions to other minor problems

 

Thank you in advance for any help.

Thanks for the tips Nick! Ready made solution on # 3 might partially solve the issue (I need to see it in action before I can be sure about if it fits or not).

 

Now, #4 tip doesn't solve the problem as there are different processes for each product (which sometimes could be multiple e.g. options to design online or submit a design brief). Plus that I need the links placed in the prodcut description page ONLY if the customer has not bought the product before (I don't need that link in re-ordering pages as it would confuse customers about if they need to redesign the item (e.g. business cards) or just place a reorder. If you have any other ideas, I would love to hear from you.

 

Thanks again for your help
