The e-commerce.

Configuration Suggestions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am new to osCommerce and was hoping to setup a new site. I have a few requirements and was wondering if you could give me some suggestions as how to do it.


I need to have an information section with a few pages for catelogues, instructional videos, product information, etc. Maybe in a CMS to make it easy to change the content.


The cart should be available to the public as it is for wholesale customers only. This means they will need to have an account setup and signin before they can access the shopping cart.


The shipping is a little of a problem as the products are flammable so most of the time it required quotes. This will mean that they have to place and order, we will then have to add the shipping manually, and then update the order so they can finalise the order.


Any suggestions on the best way to do this would be appreciated.

Thanks Chris.


I have looked through the add-ons but my issue is more that I am new to osCommerce and there are a lot of options out there. I was hoping to get some feedback and suggestions as to what people are using so I dont have to setup each option to see which one works.


So any suggestions would be appreciated.

The functions you want to achieve in your shop aren't needed in the type of shops that I run, so I don't have any specific recommendations to give you. But if I were to need some of the features you are asking about, I'd start by looking up add ons that do what I want, then if there's a support thread for that topic start looking through that thread for posts about installation, bugs, functionality, compatibility (with various osc versions) and so on. If an add on has been around a while, there's a very good chance that others have asked about the above already and you can get an idea if that particular add on is for you. It takes a bit of work but it's worth the time invested.

I am not a professional webmaster or PHP coder by background or training but I will try to help as best I can.

I remember what it was like when I first started with osC. It can be overwhelming.

However, I strongly recommend considering hiring a professional for extensive site modifications, site cleaning, etc.

There are several good pros here on osCommerce. Look around, you'll figure out who they are.
