What are the things you forgot...

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to run through a mental checklist of the things left to do before I populate my store and get it ready to go live. So, for those who have gone before me, I'd love to draw on your experiences...

 

1. Are there any things that you feel you SHOULD have done before you went live, that you didn't? ( And the consequence? )

 

2. How about things that you WISH you would have done before you went live but didn't?

 

3. Anything that, initially omitted, was challenging to incorporate once you went live?

 

4. Any other feedback you'd like to offer. :)

 

TIA for your comments!

Make sure your terms, conditions,privacy and stuff is filled out. It looks horrible when you click a link and see "Put here your Privacy Notice information." Get rid of any test items you might have been using and any test accounts you've created. Make sure your prices are indicated, you don't want to have an item marked $0.00 when actually you want $50.00.

I finally got it working about 99.9%. Only thing it doesn't wanna do is deduct from the amount in the customer's cart, ie if they have $25 in vouchers and use 10, it doesnt knock it down to $15, it still lets them have 25. I simply don't use vouchers and use the CCGV for coupons and free shipping discounts to new customers. Works fine for me.
