CactuShop for Shopping Carts Publisher's description
CactuShop is an ASP (Active Server Pages) shopping cart.
CactuShop is an ASP (Active Server Pages) shopping cart designed to provide a powerful base for e-commerce web sites hosted on Microsoft Windows web servers.
W3C Standards Compliant
CactuShop's default template and the code created by all front end pages is designed to adhere to the W3C's recommended XHTML specification. The placement and appearance of almost every page element can be controlled thanks to the extensive CSS implementation. CactuShop's skinning system means graphic designers can work on the look and feel without touching any ASP files.
Multiple product options per item such as size, colour, style, etc. are possible. You can also turn these options into specific combinations and track stock of each separately.
Multiple Language Capability
Database driven for easy editing and changes online; supports individual skins for each language.
You can customize each one separately, so users can see each displayed in its preferred form, for example ВЈ 5.20 (with space), $4.60 (no space), 7,30 Kr (symbol after amount and comma as decimal separator) or ВҐ165 (no decimal fractions). A real-time exchange rate update facility is available as part of support coverage.
Search Engine Friendly URLs
Replaces Google-unfriendly parameterized URLs with friendly hierarchical ones without requiring any components installed. You just need to be able to set the custom 404 page for your site.
Search Engine Extras
Google Sitemaps support and static page generator (a useful stone age alternative to Search Engine Friendly URLs).
Bulk pricing for 2 , 5 , 10 etc. - you can define the break points and number of bands
'Buy one get one free', 'Buy X get Y% off', 'Buy 2X get Y for free', etc.
Create customer groups such as 'reseller' and 'valued customers', then restrict access to certain categories of products to a specified group only or give these customer groups a percentage discount.
Configurable Tax and Shipping
You can choose prices including or excluding tax, tax displayed or hidden until checkout, US state tax, EU VAT support, tax exemption for overseas/out-of-state customers and base shipping charges on UPS real time quotes or the built-in CactuShop banded shipping system.
Saved Baskets, Wishlists and Speedorder
Save a basket to your account or during checkout and reload it whenever you need it. Set up wishlists for others to purchase items for you. Enter item codes of products from a printed catalogue or other source and add them straight to your basket.
Configurable to allow anyone to post, only customers or only those who have bought the item they wish to review. You can also require reviews to be approved before going live.
Create new attributes such as ISBN (for books), author, manufacturer, etc. and choose whether these are searchable and can appear as options on the search form too.
