A CONVENIENT METHOD TO INSTALL A HIGH RISK SHOPPING CART APPLICATION

The shopping cart application is a software program that helps to maintain an ecommerce resource such as adult or dating resource, software download resource, online shop, etc. It provides many features that are necessary for the ecommerce merchant and also the cardholders who are the customers.

This article explains the ecommerce web resource administration application which is more than a shopping cart. There are several open source packages available in the market like OsCommerce. These packages are provided for free and have several functions to manage your entire ecommerce business. Make sure that your shopping cart application can be integrated completely with your merchant accounts, online gateways and credit card processing services.

Several merchants think that installing a shopping cart application is very difficult. However, it is not true. The installation process of any good shopping cart application mostly has three major sections:

1)    The Pre-Installation Process: First, the merchant should find out whether the online shopping system is supported by his ecommerce merchant account and hosting server. There are few prerequisites for each type of shopping cart application. Most of the shopping cart applications need MySQL to run.

2)    The Installation Process: The applications will have a simple web – based installation script that allows even amateur merchants to install the application without having to break their heads. The merchants should stick to the pre-configured settings, unless they have an in-depth knowledge about the software. Also, the application will connect to its company’s servers to complete the installation process.

3)    The Post-Installation Process: After the completing the installation procedure, the ecommerce merchant should lock a few of the files situated on the server so that the server is secure from hackers.

Once the 3 steps given above are complete, then go to the Administration Panel of the application and set up and customize the shopping area as your customers would like it. You should also fill in the catalogue with your services and products and enter the right prices against each of them. Then, integrate your payment gateway with your new shopping application by installing another module that will be provided by the shopping cart provider.

Once all this is complete, your customers can use the shopping cart application for a better shopping experience. When the customer enters your online source, he will be able to see all the products and services that are available. When he selects any one of them by clicking on the image or the name the item will be added into his shopping cart application. Then, the customer can surf your website and add any number of products to his shopping cart. In the end, when he clicks the finish button, the application will display a page that contains all the products that are selected by the customer together with the total cost. The total cost will also contain the shipping charges and the taxes. Then the customer can choose to pay in any one of the ways available to him.
