General Discussion / Re: questions about drop-shipping on Abantecarte
« on: December 30, 2021, 06:56:04 PM »
While this is an old post, it is what I would consider an important one. Drop shipping is popular, however, you want to be in a clear position between your supplier and the customer, this way you can manage orders, spot fraud and track your marketing. additionally, being the one to forward orders to your supplier means you can manage many different suppliers.
taking the few minutes each day to send the orders to the correct suppliers has way more benefits than what I listed.... But you remain in control and that is important to any successful business.

General Extensions / Booking or reservation plugin
« on: December 01, 2020, 12:52:40 PM »
Is there a booking or reservation plugin for Abantecart? I have a number of clients that offer Airbnb, massage, home cleaning etc that could benefit from having their clients book online and pay for their services. I currently have them in OC and wish to move them over.

Of course it is a case by case basis with plugins, but OC changed their entire system so NO 2.X plugins worked. This left many plugin authors concentrating on wordpress plugins and the selection of plugins dropped off a lot.
I have never understood how improvement or updates could ever mean removing features or functionality...

We are OK and emerging. Version 2.0 is moving and we will try to accelerate its arrival. 
There was a temporary slowdown with v2.0 due to increased custom requests, Marketplace updates and new version 1.2.17

Also, we get lots of positive direct feedback and good reviews on third party websites.

Please tell me you are not going to do what opencart did and make 2.0 incompatible with all plugins and previous versions?

Mine was not a support request, it was a presales email sent to the correct place re the link for partners/requests on the website
I am not looking for anything free, I just need to know that our team can get answers in a timely manner from Abantecart when needed. Most of our team are advanced level, either full server admins, programmers or just a lot of ecommerce experience with a number of platforms, they will answer the typical, mundane questions for the clients, however, the odd time something come up that they can not figure out, it is nice to know they have a place to turn...and I see many posts here very dated with no replies, we have no issue in forking over some cash when needed.

The vast number of plugins and themes can sometimes create confusion in the end users mind, these are great for the designer or freelancer working for the end user, however, we are looking to compete in the DIY market, so simplicity is key, yet customers will have support needs, as we are offering this product, it is us they will contact, most questions will be routine, but the few that are not are the ones that we may need to reach out to Abantecart or the community for answers, but we will need to do this in a very timely manner.
I have no issue paying for support, but it is nice if the one that wishes to be paid for support actually answers the pre sales emails sent to them.
In short, I am looking to build a long term relationship with something that seems disinterested in that relationship...

I have watched Abantecart for some time, I like it, enough so, that I want to replace opencart as the basis of a "shopify" alternative that we offer.
However, ALL emails to the admin have gone unanswered over a period of months and the forum is not very active...
As you might well imagine the length of issues we might have later when we need to change hundreds of clients websites back to opencart, we need to make this move from an educated view.
We want to support this project, however, when our clients look for a solution, we need to be able to assist them, even with advanced issues.
What are your opinions? what would you do in our situation?
Paul
