- The options dropdown box will dynamically change to a link titled 'View Product Options', and
- The text "Please Select a Product" will be removed.
NOTE: When the 'Buy Now' button or 'View Product Options' link is clicked the website will navigate to the Product Details page for the product selected.
Product Details Page Changes
We would also make the following changes to the Product Details page, like Pond Supplies.
Below the print this page icon there will be a line, below which two (2) tabs will be shown.
- Options Tab:
The first tab will be titled 'Product Options' and will show (by default) only if product associations (option) is configured for a product.
The following fields will be shown in this tab:
- Product Code - the standard field value,
- Size - the standard field value,
- Unit of Measure - the standard field value, and
- Standard Price- the standard field value.

The format of data under this tab will be as per the existing add ons, like Pond Supplies. If no product associations (options) are configured for a product, this tab will show (by default) with data below.
NOTE: If a product associations, either an option or an add on is NOT configured, then the above tabs will not be shown.
When a product is added to the shopping cart the Products image will be displayed between the Qty and the Product Code in the shopping cart similar to the image below.
When a current websites Usernames for each customer are required to be used for the new Straightsell website, we would manually create a Buyer file and upload this directly to the Straightsell Control Panel. We typically would provide training on preparing the buyers file, and once trained; you (our customer) would actually prepare the full file for upload. After upload and after launch of the new website, we would email all "Buyers" their usernames and a link to the new website.
We would add category header text and images similar to Pond Supplies or Elliott Australia, with ability to display one (1) related image, plus category text and display this on the top of the Product List page for each category set that has at least one (1) product in it.
We would update the promotion code functionality to cater for the storage of a balance value and expiry date for a promotion. This functionality will allow a Straightsell website customer to offer a Gift Card or Gift Voucher for sale on their website, and when sold, cater for handling the balance of the value ($) of the voucher after an initial redemption, i.e. a website user will be able to redeem their Gift Card/Voucher more than once. A website user will also be able to check the remaining balance of their Gift Card or Gift Voucher on the website.
The website templates would be updated to:
- Store Promotion Code values including expiry date, and
- To lookup the remaining balance value of a specific Promotion Code.
The Straightsell Control Panel would be updated to:
- Create a balance value field to set against a Promotion Code that is restricted to a Dollar amount off / multiple use type of promotion.
- Add functionality to set the balance value when this type of Promotion Code is redeemed. I.e. a Promotion Code will start out as with a $50 balance value and after 1 or more redemptions end up as a $0 balance value.
- Add functionality to cater for the lookup of each redemption against a Promotion Code, with the type of transaction (original purchase/redemption) the web order number of the transaction, date of transaction and value of the transaction.
We would create a custom field against all items in the product catalogue titled "RRP Price" This field will be populated with the RRP price of a product that is 'On Special'.
Where this new RRP Price field contains data and the value is greater than the standard or calculated price for a product, the RRP Price value will show with a strikethough as per the example below.
|Was $10.50||RRP Price|
The above change will occur on the following website pages/areas:
- Product List,
- Product Details,
- Featured Products,
- Print Page, and
- Options Product Price swap-out.
NOTE: On initial page load (product details), where a product has options the parent size and price would be displayed where applicable. Pricing would update as options are selected.
If you (our customer) wished to configure products with this "RRP Price" in your accounting system, then you could co-ordinate the addition of a new user define field with your selected accounting system consultant. The addition of this field in your accounting systemwould mean that we could configure our accounting systems integration to import and upload the data in this field to the website.
We would add 'Buy by Box' functionality for selected products to the website, similar to the example screen shot below. A website customer would be able to increase or decrease the number of boxes they wish to purchase by selecting a + or - button. The box quantity and unit price will also be displayed. The shopping cart will also display the + or - buttons for each product.
We would add 'Print Products by Category' functionality similar to Shamrock Craft. When a user selects a category a Product List page would show all products within the Category, with a link on the top right hand corner called "Print Category". When the user selects this link they will be directed to a page with all products in the category in 'Gallery' view ready for printing. This feature does not include page numbering functionality.
We would add an 'On Special' custom field to the CatalogueItems table to cater for flagging that an item is 'On Special'. Products marked as 'On Special' will still display in their natural product category location (Category Level 1, Category Level 2, and Category Level 3).
This 'On Special' custom filed could be configured against products as required in your accounting system, if a new user dfined field was added to your accounting system buy your selected accounting system consultant. The addition of this field in your accounting system would mean that Straightsell can configure the accounting system integration to import and upload the data in this field to the website.
We would add a 'View Product Specials' box to the Home Page of the website to cater for searching for products that are exclusively 'On Special'.
Products flagged as 'On Special' would display an 'On Special' icon on the Product List and Product Details pages of the website, catering for buyers who stumble across a product that is on special, in the products natural product category location. The 'On Special' icon would be configurable via the website Control Panel.
We would create a Custom Form in Control Panel for creating and editing Albums. This custom form would have the following fields:
- Album Title - A text field for entering the Album Title,
- Album Description - A text field for entering a description for the Album, and
- Album Image Folder - A text field for entering the folder containing the images for this Album.
A Gallery page would be coded to automatically cycle through all Albums in the custom form, displaying the Title, Description and the Album Cover Image. The Album Cover Image would be located in the folder specified by the "Album Image Folder" field, and would be named "AlbumCover.jpg" (or something similar).
On clicking on an Album, the thumbnail page for that Album would display. The thumbnails would be uploaded to the folder specified by the "Album Image Folder" field, in a sub-folder called thumbnails. All images within this thumbnail folder would display on the thumbnail page, and when clicked would open the larger version of the image. These large images would be uploaded to the folder specified by the "Album Image Folder" field, and be named the same as their associated thumbnail image.
The large image screen would contain Previous and Next links to cycle back and forth through the images within the Album, as well as links to return to the Thumbnail page or the main Album page.
Using this method, images and thumbnails can be uploaded to or deleted from the Albums' folders and the associated gallery pages would dynamically update based on the contents of the folders.
The gallery pages would be coded as to retain the website design.
View Sonic Performance Gallery page.
We would add a Dealer Locator page which would display a map of Australia and New Zealand with Australian State and New Zealand selectable regions and upon selection of a region the website will navigate to the section of the page below devoted to the selected State or Territory or Country, similar to Sonic Performance location page. We would load example data and provide training on how to populate the data.
We would change the display of product pricing on the Product List and Products Details pages of the website, after login, to display the Standard (List) Price from the CatalogueItems table, like "(RRP ex GST)" and underneath display the Calculated (Special) Price like "(Your Buy ex GST)". Where the Calculated (Special) Price comes from the calculated discount price based on pricing configured in your accounting system. See example screen shot below:
We would add a drop-down menu item to cater for the display of additional static pages in a drop-down menu, similar to Wilcox Safety "Extra Information" menu item. You (our customer) would provide the page names to be populated in each drop-down, as required.
