I am trying to add the code for visitors to be able to message me on Facebook. I was unable to add the code because of links but I did screenshot it and attach it so you can see the code I am trying to implement on my site. The code contains HTML and Javascript and won't work pasted just as HTML in a Block. I do NOT see any type of Source Editor just HTML and Visual in the Blocks. Where do I find the Source Code editor to paste this code as a Source Code?

I cannot get this AbanteCart down, its pretty hard to use actually, or to me it is.


While AbanteCart is GREAT and definitely includes some very powerful and needed features for an e-commerce site to be successful, it is lacking in some areas compared to other popular e-commerce platforms. I feel with some minor improvements, releases of some new extensions and templates and implementation of some new core features would put AbanteCart at the top of the list of e-commerce platforms.

1. I dislike the text editor available with AbanteCart greatly. How much editing you can do to the text is extremely limited. I don't understand why something like TinyMCE editor is not incorporated into AbanteCart instead of the mini editor with minimal features that available with it. Surely something better and more powerful can be incorporated to give us that use AbanteCart more text editing options than the few available with the current editor.

2. Most of the Extensions and Templates available for AbanteCart cost money and none of them are what I would personally consider cheap. Most seem to be at least $35.00 plus there's not all that many available. Other e-commerce platforms have hundreds and hundreds of extensions and lots of those are FREE. Some of us don't have money to buy the extensions we need to be successful and personally, I need quite a few extensions available, that seem to be $35+. I'd have to invest over $500 to get the extensions/templates I need for my store and starting out is tough enough financially, let alone having to pay for features other cart systems already have. Due to this, I may eventually be forced to switch to another cart software and I hate to. I understand that it takes time to develop extensions and templates but why not LOWER the price and offer some more free or offer BASIC versions of the paid and expensive extensions free? I'm yet to find A SINGLE FREE template other than the boring included one for my AbanteCart and I can't afford to buy one just getting started.

3. There are some features that should really be a part of the main package of AbanteCart like Gift Certificates. I'm yet to see another e-commerce platform charge for gift certificates feature, it's already included in most and all I've ever used. AbanteCart also needs to include more payment methods and also allow the store owner to set a COD fee for the Cash on Delivery payment method because there IS A FEE that must be paid when items are shipped COD. This shouldn't be something we must pay extra for, it needs to be included FREE. There also needs to be some other features incorporated that other e-commerce platforms have included with their software free of charge.

4. If Templates cannot be provided free of charge, at least a few anyway, then a detailed guide needs to be written and available publically so people can create their own Templates for AbanteCart. I would create my own templates if I had a clue where to even begin.

If we could see just some small improvements to AbanteCart, some new features, some more free extensions and templates or cheaper extensions and templates, it would be a wonderful thing for everyone. I do not mind paying for features I want but some of the prices are excessive and as I stated earlier, it is hard for those of us just starting out to afford a $35.00 extension or $65.00 template!

I created a new form called Price Match and created a Block also for it. I have been trying and trying to figure out how to do one of the following to no avail:

Either add a new Contact Form link to my site Main Page in the Footer where the Contact Links and etc are OR
Add the new Contact Form INSIDE a NEW Content Page called Price Match and cannot do EITHER.

The link does not show up for the form in the Footer where I'd like for a link to be created for it. Is there something I am missing? Can I embed this form in a Content Page link for instance I did with JotForm for my Wholesaler and Dropshipper Application pages? I don't like using external forms and wish this were possible.

It seems everything with this system is so complex and requires so many steps. I even went to Layout and Blocks Manager and attempted to add it there, as you can see in attachment and nothing.

Please help me EMBED this form in a Content Page!


How-to questions / Mass Adding of Related Products?
« on: April 15, 2018, 09:31:12 PM »
I have several products to add (and currently in my store) that have related products. I am wondering if there is an easy way to add a related products to each specific product I want them added to without adding each and every one to every single product manually? This will take me hours, if not days, by the time I get all of my currently available products added. It would be very nice and very helpful if one could select multiple products to relate products to and relate all the selected products with just a click or two instead of manually adding each and every product to related to each product.

If anyone know of a way to do this or if something exists to do this, please share!


I am wondering if it is possible to offer a percentage discount to customers in certain Customer Groups if they purchase a certain number of products from within a category instead of a certain quantity of one single item? If this is possible, how do I accomplish this? For example, I have the Customer Groups titled Dropshippers and one titled Wholesalers and for MANY items, I only have one single item. Typically, the minimum purchase for the Dropshipper Group is one but for the Wholesalers Group, it's 10 and I'm unable to use the Promotions feature within the products to offer a discount to the Wholesalers Group unless I lower my quantity to match the quantity in stock.

If anyone knows of a way to offer a percentage discount or other discount to certain Customer Groups for entire categories instead of single products, please let me know. Or is there possibly a way to set the minimum number of products someone in a certain Customer Group must purchase before they are eligible for the promo for that Customer Group? I am trying to avoid any Paid Modules as I do not have the funds to purchase anything like that right now since I just launched and purchased a lot of inventory for my store until I start generating sales on a regular basis. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am having difficulty with the FedEx shipping module. I entered all of the required information but was unable to find my Production Key so I emailed FedEx. They responded with an Authentication Key, which I entered and still, the module fails to work. Is this not what I needed? I emailed FedEx back with a screenshot to show them exactly what information was required. I've checked and re-checked all the information and it is correct.

I am seeking at least one person to help me with custom extensions I need for AbanteCart. I have 3 projects right now that I need completed and am sure there will be more. I will apologize upfront for the many colors used in the post but I did it to separate the multiple jobs I have. Pay can be discussed and I pay by the job not the hour. I will add to this post if I think of others. Here's what I need so far:

Custom Shipping Module
We hand deliver orders to customers within a 50 mile radius of our store (usually same or next business day) and I need a shipping module for it. The customer must live within 50 miles of the store's postal code and place a $10.00 minimum order in order for the shipping option to activate. I need something similar to the Weight Based Module. The module must be able to measure the number of miles from the store post code to the customers to see if they qualify for hand delivery. I need to be able to define the distance and rate for distances in the admin area for the module. For example, within 10 miles, charge is $5, within 20 miles charge is $8 and etc. If the customer meet the distance but not order total, I'd like for the module to display a notice to the customer if they order $10, they are eligible for hand delivery of the order. If the customer selects this shipping option, they should be able to pick a date and time for delivery which is sent along with the copy of the order and stored in the database so we know when to deliver.

Allow Customer to Make Offer on Product
I need an extension that will allow a customer to make an offer on a product's price. The customer can select the quantity up to the maximum quantity available and type in the price they want to offer PER item. Once the customer clicks offer, a review screen before the offer is submitted officially will display their quantity, offer per item and total, so if they offer $3.00 per item on 10 of the item, the total would be $30.00. Once the customer clicks Accept or Send Offer, I will receive a notification in the admin panel and an email notifying me of a new offer. OpenCart and Magento both have similar extensions so perhaps if you're good, you could modify one of those. Another thing I'd like to have with this extension but is not an absolute have to have is the customer can make an offer on their entire cart. When they open their cart, they will see a Make Offer on Order button and allow them to make an offer on the entire order. I should receive a copy of the cart along with the original price and offer price.

Price Match Feature
Next I'd like a Price Match feature. I meet and beat competitors prices. Each product should have a button that says Find Lower Price? or something similar and when the customer clicks it, it will allow them to enter the URL for the exact product they found on a different site cheaper. I should receive a notification in the admin area and an email when a price match has been submitted. If the customer did find the product cheaper, I should be able to lower the price JUST FOR THAT CUSTOMER and notify them that they can order the product for X price because their Price Match was accepted.
