PostSubject: The Soigeneris website   Mon Sep 11, 2017 10:03 am

A few weeks ago the company that hosted my website suddenly went out of business. I was able to dump the order log and some other things but lost the database. As luck would have it I was starting to set up some new chopping cart software so I had a skeleton of a website already.

It take a lot of effort to recreate every product page but I thought it was the best way forward as the new shopping cart software is much, much better. In the past few weeks I have added all the Taig accessories and a few other items. I still need to go back and make sure that all the Taig accessories are visible in all matching categories. At this time they will only show up under Taig Accessories or Manufacturer->Taig. If you search by the Taig part number you should also find it.

If you have any trouble please let me know. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've used a few carts over the years. The biggest deficiency on most is the shipping module. I've got a little experience with ClickCartPro (10+ years ago), ZenCart, and CubeCart. My very first shopping cart was custom coded, and every little change or add on cost big bucks. Things have sure come a long way since then. They all have their issues. CubeCart is decent and modestly easy to setup, but it does appear to be geared towards allowing developers to sell you add-on modules. Some of the modules are quite good, others are... well... LOL. Important modules like The PayPal payment gateway and a few others are free. Just install what you need. Adding a product to multiple categories is pretty much dead easy, and the built in search engine is decent.

So just out of curiosity. What cart did you go with for the rebuilt site.

P.S. I was wondering why we hadn't seen you in a while. Been busy pulling allnighters getting your site going again. I've sure been there.

I am using nopCommerce. It is free, open source and has a very active forum. I have only needed to tweak a few minor parts of the code to get it to work as I want. They do have paid services available and I will likely hire someone to take the CSV order dump I was able to get from the old site and build a SQL script to merge it into the new system.

I have been nose to the grindstone trying to get the new cart set up. Having used the old software for 5+ years I kind of lost track how long it had taken to set up all the product pages.

Yeah, I've had a few folks ask me to setup sites for them.  I would, but most expect to be able to hand me their catalog and have me put in everything with all the crosslinking and nuances that only somebody who is familiar with their products intimately can do.  If I have to get that familiar with their business then I might as well just go into competition with them, because they sure won't pay me enough to do the job.  LOL.  

As much work as it is to setup a decent site (couple days if you do a really nice job and test everything) product entry is much more work. I suspect that's why there are so many professional Ebay sellers and why people use Shopify or Amazon. All you have to do is product entry.
