Handling Credit Cards in shop




First and foremost the site needs to have a SSL Certificate installed, you can purchase one from many hosting services. Install it in root of website, hosting company usually will help you install it through their control panel.

 

- Add a Shop as you would normally.

- In shop settings click "SSL on Checkout"

- Click on shop and click on checkout page in the right side panel:

   Add fields below to form

   1. Payment Type: (dropdown with accepted credit cards, Visa, MasterCard etc..)

   2. Credit Card Number

   3. Expiration Date: Month and Year

   4. Security code: CSC

  Add a hidden field before checkout or submit payment button called ec_PaymentMethod, value = bankwire

 

- You may have a PayPal button as well, if you are not using PayPal in addition to Credit Cards, then you can delete it.

 

If you have an edit area on the side you can place the script below to show categories in secure mode using insert html.

for example (wherever your shop is located)

<script src="https://www.yourdomain.com/shop.php?category_vlist"></script>

 

Then go ahead and make visual changes to shop pages as you see fit.

I have a test credit card sample shop that you can use as a template. Fill in your shop email and make visual changes to cart and then add your upload settings.

Consider them as extra item, added to the shopping cart that reduces the total price.

Linking Shops




multiple shops can be linked to single products database

in this example SHOPA is main shop with source products database and SHOPB is linked shop (will use products database from SHOPA). Also we will create new price field in SHOPA to use different prices for same products in SHOPB (this is not required, both shops can also use same prices)

 

follow this steps to link SHOPB to SHOPA:

 

1. Make sure both shops are on same directory level (either both in ---root--  or both in 2nd level folders)

2. in SHOPA, go to shop settings, data and add new field of type 'price', (in this example we will give it name price2)

3. in SHOPB, go to shop settings, settings and define LINKED ID property, Linked ID is internal Ezgenerator page ID of SHOPA, you can find this id on status bar:

 

status bar

 

4. to use price field, set 'Linked Price Field' to 'price2' (name of field we created in step 1), also you will have to replace all %price% macros on pages of SHOPB with macro %price2%

 

5. do upload and login to SHOPA first (to apply database changes), then to SHOPB

 

end...

 

how things works:

both shops use their own databases for orders/settings, but share products database from SHOPA

some things you have to know:

- all shop settings defined inside EzGenerator and in online administration are not shared between SHOPA and SHOPB (except for data)

- if you visit administration panel of SHOPB, you actually edit products from SHOPA

- stock information is shared between SHOPA and SHOPB

 

 

since version 4.0.0.459 you can limit products/items in shopB by using "limit by" option:

 

1. in SHOPA define new field (let's call it : "linked") of type boolean

2. in SHOPA set for all products which you want to use in SHOPB, value for field "linked" to TRUE (or YES)

3. in SHOPB settings select "linked" as "limit by" option
