Download and unzip microCART.zip file
Upload all the files in your site keeping the same structure. eg cart.php must be on the same level as your forum.php
CMOD 777 the directories:
Login to your admincp and import product-microcart.xml
First of all you need to setup microCART General Options. The most important option is to set the path to the directory where you'll store the files. For security reasons you must create a directory over the public area. Then write the full path in the options. Don't forget the trailing slash at the end. Example:
Setup Usergroup permissions. Available options are:
Can access the store
Can Moderate. Please note that, as a way to bypass the limitation of having vB editor in admincp, I've moved the product descriprion, system messages and agreements to fronend. But only those who can moderate can access this area, and only for modifying the text. Nothing more.
Setup Categories and Subcategories for your store.
Setup your Agreements (at least one)
Start adding products but from AddOns and Services. It will helps you to save time, as when at a later time you add a main product, you can choose the addons.
To work properly with HTML editor you need to edit settings.php locating at: microcart/editor/assetmanager/ and set the corrects paths.
4.- Product Options (Configurations)
In version 1.0.3 has been added support for configurable options. Not just simple text choices, but options that can increase/decrease the total price. That's why you need to pay extra attention on entering these options to avoid pricing mess.
First of all, you can find these options as "Extra Options" on the droplist on the right of each product (AdminCP). By choosing it you'll get a list of all available configurable options for the specific product. You can Edit and Delete it, or you can change the display order. Click "New Extra Option" to add one.
There is no need for explanation of title. Write there anything that you want. Examples of configuration options are: Color, Size, Ram, Hard disk etc. So let's write Size. In the box below you must add all the available options keeping the format:
0|Normal : This option dosen't changes the product's price and it will appears as: Normal
15.30|Large : This option increases the price by 15.30 and it will appears as: Large (+$15.30) ... The currency symbol is the one that you've setup. DON'T NEED TO ENTER CURRENCY SYMBOL HERE
-7.50|Mini : This option decreases the price by 7.50 and it will appears as: Mini (-$7.50). ONCE MORE: DONT ADD CURRENCY SYMBOL.
5.- Product Terminology
Price: Is the normal price that you're selling a product (eg 49.95)
Discount: Is the amount that you're giving as discount. eg if you place 4.95 here the price will appear as $49.95 $45.00
Special (Bundle) price. Currently not in use
AddOns. Are products that someone can order in the same form (eg Installation, Brand Free etc).
Special Bundle. Currently not in use
6.- Understanding Shipping Zones
To understand Shipping fields (Base weight, Base fare, Extra weight, Extra fare), you must know how the companies (at least the most of them) are working. They're saying: Till 3 kilos the rate is $15. More than 3 kilos you must add $3 per 500gr (1/2 kilos). In this example you must setup:
Base weight 3000 (in grammars) or 3 (in kilos)
Base fare 15.00
Extra weight 500 (in grammars) or 0.5 (in kilos)
Extra fare 3.00
Please note to use the same as the definied in the general option weight unit. Setting in options kgr and here grammars is the best way to mess your shop.
