Basket Plus Module

The Basket Plus module provides a shopping basket with order workflow, offline and PayPal payment, html e-mail support and several other additions to the configuration. The module is based on the original basket module by Glooper.

Installation

To install, extract the "basket_plus" folder from the zip file into your Gallery 3 modules folder. Afterwards log into your Gallery website as an administrator and activate the module in the Admin -> Modules menu.
Important: error logging should be off when installing the module.
Note: if you want to load the default Basket Plus settings, make sure you have set the default language to either English (en_US or en_UK) or Dutch (nl_NL) before activating the module. The default settings are defined in the file basket_plus_installer_local.php in the Helpers folder. You can modify this file to define default settings for other languages.

Order workflow

An order goes through a predefined order workflow.

Standard workflow:

1. Customer confirms the order: resulting order status is Waiting Payment
2. Customer pays the order: resulting order status is Payment Confirmed
3. Web shop ships the order: resulting order status is Order Delivered
In above steps, alternative steps are possible:

Alternative workflow: shipment before payment

2a. Web shop ships the order without payment: resulting order status is Order Delivered without payment
3a. Customer pays the order: resulting order status is Order Delivered

Alternative workflow: cancellation

2b. Customer cancels the order: resulting order status is Cancelled
Note: cancellation is not supported after order payment has been done, as prints may have been made already.
The status transitions can be done in the Order detail page, accessible from one of the order overviews. See the section '

Email Templates

With the email templates you can personalize the communication with your customers.
An email template contains a text field (max. 2048) and an html field (max. 32K). The text field is meant for the text-only internal order emails, the html field for customer emails.
By default, three email templates are defined:

  • order: template for the confirmation email that is sent when the customer chooses Offline payment
  • order_paypal: template for the confirmation email that is sent when the customer chooses PayPal payment
  • order_update: template for update emails. The content of these emails is determined by the settings in Templates. The text field is not used as there are no internal update emails sent.

Translations

The translations page is only meant to enable translations of texts that cannot be translated in the various basket pages.
To make or modify translations, activate the translation mode as administrator in the Languages page. Return to the Translations page to modify the translations.

Product Lines

From the product lines page you can choose, edit and create the products that you can ship images in. By default three product lines are set up 4x6 8x10 and Original photo. You should edit these to reflect the products that you can ship in and the cost. When a client is viewing an image he will be able to click the "add to basket" button and choose from the list of available products.

Overriding products and prices

You can override the available products and costs at either the album or photo level. To do this as an administrator go to the album or photo you wish to override the available products for and choose the edit option. From here you can select the "no products except" and then manually select the products available and the price. Note that when doing this for an album then it effects all sub albums.
For instance you can edit your root album and disable all photos from being sold by clicking the "no products except" and not choosing any products. This would mean that the "add to basket" will be disabled on all photos, you can then allow a photo to be bought by editing that photo and again clicking the "no products except" and choosing the product lines available.

Postage Bands

Postage bands provide ways of adding postage and packaging costs at the checkout. Each product line can be assigned a postage band (this is done on the product line page). A Postage Band consists of a name and two numbers a fixed rate and a per item cost. A fixed rate is the postage added regardless of quantity where as the per item is the postage cost added for each individual item.
For instance here's how it would work with a couple of scenario's:

  • If you only sold prints and always charged $5 for P+P regardless of quantity bought then you would set up a postage band called say "Fixed Rate For Prints". And have the fixed rate set to 5 and the per-item set to 0. This postage band could then be assigned to all products and as such the client would only ever get charged $5 for postage regardless of items bought.
  • If you sold framed prints and sent each print separately regardless of ordered quantity and wish to charge postage of $5 for each framed print then you would create a postage band called "Framed Prints Per Item". And have the Fixed rate set to 0 and the per-item set to $5. Now if a client ordered 10 framed prints, he would be charged $50 postage and packaging.
  • It might be that you post frames in the same package but wish to charge a little extra for each print as the weight increases, as such you can edit the previous postage band and set the fixed rate to say $5 and the per-item to $2. Now if a client ordered 10 framed prints, he would be charged 5 + 2 * 10 = $25.

You can of course have many different postage bands set up and applied to different products. If a client has products from different postage bands then all the postage options are added up i.e. if he/she bough 5 prints and 10 framed prints he/she could be charged 5 (for the prints) + 25 (for the framed prints) = $30 postage

Additional User settings

In the User details page, additional settings for pickup and order reference are available:
