what is the generic version?
The Generic Version is Ecommerce Templates shopping cart software set up to specifically integrate with your existing site or design. It has all the features of the Ecommerce Plus software, the online control panel for administering the store, integration with the top payment providers ... in fact, everything you need to set up your online store except for the design and hosting which you are free to choose for yourself.
how does it work?
Basically what you need to do is start with an existing page of your current design and clear out the main center content so you are left with a white space in the middle of the page. This is where the dynamically generated shopping cart content will appear once you have the site on your server and the database connection made.
Now just copy and paste the 5 ASP or PHP include lines into code view of that space you have made to set up each of the store pages, upload to your host, make the database connection and you're ready to start adding categories and products through the online control panel.
what do I need?
All you need is an existing site or design that you want to add the shopping cart software to and a host that supports a mySQL, Access or MS SQL Server database. Just about any design will do as long as there's enough white space in the middle of the page to show the cart and other store pages. If you're not sure what database support is offered by your host or if your design is suitable for the Generic Version, please do get in touch. If you haven't hooked up with a host yet, we have some suggestions on our hosting page.
any more questions?
We have extensive help files, video tutorials and printer friendly pages available on our Generic Version help page. The code is all commented to clearly show the function of each page. The purchase also comes with 6 months of support if you have any doubts or problems that need clearing up.
