This niche is not so overloaded with online stores as fashion clothing stores or stores with kids toys, but auto parts selling has its own issues and details. For example, there is a great range of assortment and fast and convenient filters should be placed on the website to search the right auto part easily.

Responsible Product Designer moduleSmall print shops typically provide one or more services including photocopying, offset printing, screen printing or digital printing, offering diverse product lines such as personal and commercial paper printing, T-shirts and other wearables, signage, posters, and promotional goods.

Many people say that printing business is one of the most simple and fast payback projects. There is a reasonable point of view. It's not a secret that to start the printing business you shouldn't pay a fortune for the printing equipment. There are a lot of cheap and good in quality machines. Also, you may launch the online shop to gather clients quotes for printing all over the world and send the printed products by delivery services.

You might have already heard about different online Product Designer modules that make business life easier.

Examined the design of all existing solutions for online stores that offer to print custom design on their products, you may notice that all features are complicated and clients should spend lots of time to puzzle out how to make design and purchase the product. Moreover, most of them are loaded in a special pop-up block that connected with the main product page but not fully integrated on it. In this case, the website visitor waits for the page loading than they wait for the pop-up-block loading. If the clients are short in time for purchasing (this is a common situation), they close the website and move to another online store that is more user-friendly and fast in loading.

How to make CS-Cart add-on | CS-Cart import/export module.

March 25th, 2018

Here, we are going to describe the CS-Cart module creation and the method how to expand the standard import/export functionality on the e-commerce platform.

Though CS-Cart is quite a good system for building an e-commerce website, sometimes CS-Cart import/export feature is required to be modified to reach special business aims. 

For example, some years ago we made module “Extended import” that allows fast and easy import of supplier's file where the field titles do not match with titles applied in CS-Cart.

How to work with CS-Cart import/ export data functionality? What is a CSV file?

March 6th, 2018

product import csvWhat is CSV file? What role does it have in CS-Cart?

CSV is a text file that is supposed for convenient presentation of table data. This is the most popular document format for import and export data in internet shops. This is a sort of table where all your records about products are in right order. The CSV file saves a pile of time while editing data in an online shop. For example, you have created an online shop on CS-Cart platform and you need to fill up it with products or you need to raise all prices in short possible time. Wouldn't you do it manually, opening each product page in the admin panel and change the product price?
