Stop Customers From Changing Quantities in the Cart
Demos are not available because of unscrupulous people seeking to "rip" the scripts. Thankfully, the descriptions give a complete idea of what the scripts do so that demos are not needed. Rest assured any fraudulent claims on my part would be a topic of discussion on Mal's Forum during my 6 years as a contributor. There aren't any. So please don't email me asking for demos. Any requests for demos will be disregarded.
Searching for a way to have a Minimum Order Amount that works with your Mal's E-Commerce Cart?
Up to now, you've had to take on small orders, and small profits from those orders (same amount of work though as a larger order...) and you're thinking that perhaps if you could insist on just a few dollars more per order, like you'd be able to with a minimum order, it would certainly be more profitable for you.
But the problem has been how to do this with Mal's E-Commerce, since you can't program the Cart for a minimum order amount. So you first try stating that you have a minimum on your home page, but most people don't read your statement, or maybe they ignore it. So then you think about adding a flat fee to every order, until you realize that doing so increases the dollar amount but without any value for the customer... just not good business, that will drive customers away. You may as well raise prices instead, but you don't really want to do that either. It just would be better if there was some way to program the Cart to have people place a minimum order, wouldn't it?
Well, that's where this script soars...
I've worked it so that if the customer is in the Cart, but hasn't met your minimum order, they just won't be able to click on "Go to Payments" and complete that sub-minimum transaction, because until they do meet your minimum order amount, their Go to Payments button has been disabled.
You read that right.
They can click on Continue Shopping, they can click on Recalculate, but if they click on "Go to Payments", it won't work until they MEET or EXCEED your minimum order amount. If they recalculate upward and meet your minimum, or if they add another purchase and by so doing meet your minimum, then the Cart operates as it normally does and they can complete their transaction and send you the order.
Complete and full detailed instructions are included. It's simple and easy to set up. And the best part is, the price of this script is only $20... probably less than your minimum order!
Works with Mal's E-Commerce Cart Variables Feature. If you've set up the cart to use your images for the "Recalculate/Go to Payments" function rather than Mal's default buttons, a customer who has not met your minimum order will not be able to recalculate in the cart. Mal's has combined both functions, Recalculate and Go to Payments, into one when you use your own images. Since our priority is to disable the Go to Payments button, both functions end up getting disabled. This does not happen if you use the default grey form buttons instead.
The first thing that happened when I wrote this script was... My Sales Doubled!
Why? It's common sense, really... because this script sends your
customer's purchase data right to the cart - yet your customer stays right on your site
where they're likely to buy more.
There's only one other way I know of to try to get double or triple the amount of sales you're getting right now, and that's to get double or triple the amount of traffic coming in, right? So which way is easier? Which way is a faster help to accomplish your sales goals? Let me tell you, it's a heck of a lot easier to just have this script help boost more profit per customer, instead of trying to attract more customers and more orders and dealing with more customers and more orders. Especially if those orders are only one half or one third of what they could've been with this script. Work smarter, not harder.
When your customer clicks on your "buy" button or link to make a purchase, all the product data (like price, your user id, product description data) is sent to Mal's cart, just the same as always, but from now on, your customer's browser stays put on the same page on your site. They don't go anywhere... You don't have to hope that your customer comes back to your site...
just a few easy, step-by-step instructions sets it up. I've made it real simple to do! Works with all of Mal's carts, links and forms.
NOTE: Because this script does not send your customer to the cart, other scripts available here, the Cart Display scripts and the Cart Timer scripts, do not operate if the add-to-cart script is running. (Both the Cart Display & Cart Timer scripts have to work with the cart variables generated when the customer goes to the cart, and since with the add-to-cart running the customer doesn't go to the cart and return the variables back to the site, there isn't any data created for the Cart Display to display or anything to start the timer on the Cart Timer. If you order the add-to-cart along with the Cart Display or Cart Timer, I'll understand your order to mean that you want those scripts despite this notice.)
Here's a easy script that displays your customer's quantity and subtotal amount on your site, to keep a running total of their purchases.
If your customer recalculates up or down while in the cart, this script will show the new totals when the customer returns to your site.
The default display will look something like this (you can change the dollar sign to anything else you like):
items in cart: 1
Full instructions for set up are included. We only ask for a nominal $25 donation. If your site uses frames, choose the Cart Display Script for Frames. If you use a page with an Iframe to display the cart, select the IFrame page version. Otherwise, the regular Cart Display script is recommended.
This Script will automatically return your customer to
whatever page you've encoded as your "return" page from the cart. When their
purchase sends them to the cart, an alert box will inform them that their item has been
added and when they click that alert box , they will be sent to your page.
Shopping Cart Form Validator
When the customer clicks on your "Buy" button, this script will review your customer's submission to check that all needed selections from drop-down menus and any quantity textbox you may have, have been chosen by the customer so that you do not receive orders with missing selections.
So you'll practically stop those incomplete orders from going through until they're correctly submitted! No more wondering what your customer meant to order... and no more incorrectly guessing what they may have wanted only to have the order returned back to you, or emails back and forth waiting for your customer to answer to reselect what they meant to buy and tell you... if you don't lose the sale in the meantime. All the "big boy" sites check their forms before submission - why shouldn't you be as professional? And now you can, without spending a fortune on a programmer.
With this script in place, you can set which product fields are required. If your customer has neglected a selection, an alert box will display to point out that a selection has been overlooked to the customer and then bring their cursor back to the spot where the customer needs to amend their submission.
The Shopping Cart Form Validator:
This script is coded to work with your form and Mal's 'add.cfm' cart. Because unselected items will stop the purchase from passing to the cart until the customer makes the selection, this script should not be used with 'addmulti.cfm', so each item should have it's own form. Because Checkboxes are not used for "required" selections, this script does not validate checkboxes you may have in your form. Cannot be used with radio fields. This script will validate productpr, product and product[ ] fields and any qty textbox in your forms. Some slight recoding of drop down menus may be needed, instructions are included.
Hide Your Source Code!
Run this jscript on your browser... You simply paste your HTML code into the text window, click on Encrypt! and in a second or so, your code has been scrambled making it v-e-r-y diificult for others to decipher it when they click on the View Source button!
Plus a few other features built in help block sneaks from right-clicking your images or your page and/or copying text, images and design from your site.
These are preventive measures and will stop most people, although the more savvy individuals can figure out other ways to get at your images and source code. But a little prevention goes a long way, if you want to put up a few defenses and obstacles in their path, this is the program for you! Here's an example:
Alert Your Customers When their
Cart is About To Expire
Maybe it takes a while for customers to make their purchase decisions on your site, or maybe you'd just like to extend your customers' shopping sessions, whatever the reason, you're looking for a way to avoid this:
Your customers are shopping on your site and placing items into their shopping cart, but if they spend 30 minutes away from the cart, the cart will expire along with all the items they placed into it. Maybe they were busy with other things while they were shopping your site, or maybe they were checking out something else on your site in the meantime, but it's too late. Do you really think they'll re-shop, go through your site, hunt down and pull up your products again, and place them one by one into the cart all over again? Here's some possible scenarios to consider: Some may re-shop, some may not re-shop everything they were going to order in the first place. Out of those that do re-shop, maybe some will lose their cart yet again. Others may think your cart just isn't working right and they'll perhaps move on to another site and buy there, and others will get plain fuming mad that their shopping with you was in vain.
Why take the chance on losing any business at all? Just use this script that sets up a 2 minute warning alert box.
The Delete Cart Contents Button
This script generates a form button that displays in your customer's cart that says "Delete All". When your customer clicks on this button, a confirmation box will first display just as a precaution to guard against your customer mistakenly deleting all the cart contents accidentally. It prompts the customer with the question, "Delete All Cart Contents?" and your customer can then either click on "Yes" or "Cancel". When the customer clicks on "Yes", all the Cart's item quantities are reset to 0 and the cart automatically submits itself for recalculation, which because all the quantities are now set to zero, means that there will be no items in the cart.
Stop Customers From Changing
Quantities in the Cart
This script actually helps block your customer's ability to edit, change or otherwise recalculate the quantities of their purchases in the Cart. Perfect if you're selling limited quantities and don't want customers ordering more of an item than you have available. If your customer attempts to recalculate the quantity upward, an alert box will inform them that the quantity is limited. The customer still has the ability to recalculate to zero if they want to delete the purchase from their cart. The script covers every item in the cart with the same rules.
Full instructions for set up are included, and we only ask for a nominal $20 donation.
Minimum Quantity Cart Script
If you have a minimum quantity that must be ordered for any item on your site, you certainly don't want the customer to absent mindedly or intentionally recalculate the quantity downward once the item is passed to the cart. Here's an effective way to maintain your minimum even in the cart. If your customer attempts to recalculate the quantity downward (except to 0 to delete it), an alert box will inform them that there is a minimum quantity and revert any changes they made back to the original amount. The script covers every item in the cart with this same rule.
Full instructions for set up are included. The contribution is merely $20.
dynamically generate your hash
So you want to help stop potential rip-offs from your site by dubious individuals who may download your page and edit in the cheat price they'd prefer to pay you. You look into using Mal's Hash Verification function, but the editing of every link with that product/price's exact hash code is a daunting task... especially if you've got hundreds of items. Here's a solution:
This script will dynamically create the correct hash code for you from the data you already have in your cart links or forms. Very little additional configuration is needed. And whenever you change the product's name or price, the script will pick that up and create the corresponding hash link. No more remaking links!
The second part to this script helps prevent the cheats from just swapping in a different price. The second part looks to see from where the order is coming from when it makes it way to the cart. If the order isn't coming from your site - in other words, if it's coming from somewhere else, like some cheat's computer - then the cart will automatically block that order.
Full instructions for set up are included. We only ask for a $20 donation.
Zoom In/Out Script for your
Leading internet merchants have found that giving their customers the ability to see closeups of the products helps in turning shoppers to buyers.
While a full zoom technology system, with all it's bells and whistles, such as the ability to pan, rotate and show selected details, is extremely desirable, it's also extremely expensive. Those systems sell for thousands of dollars, and in addition, require multiple image files detailing every area of the product for each and every item. Here, we offer the "poor man's" version to better fit our pocketbooks.
You will need image files that are large to start with, the maximum displayable width size in the script is 700 pixels wide, in keeping with the most popular screen size being 800 pixels wide. You may change this setting if you wish. This script has been tested for use on IE, newer versions of NetScape should also support this.
stop phony orders coming in from
tampered pages -
Where there's a fraudster willing to cheat you, there's a computer with a copy of your product page in its editor. They swap in a phony price for your goods, bring up their pirate version on their browser, and click to send it off to your cart, where, if you're not observant, their order may get filled for a few dollars less than what it should be.
Full instructions for set up are included. It's only $20.
Add a Charge for Personalizing your Items
If you have items that you sell personalization or engraving for as an option, here's the script that counts up all the letters (or characters) the customer wants as the personalization. As they enter the text in a textbox in your product's add.cfm form, the script calculates the total price for personalization and displays it real-time to the customer, then adds it to the product's base price when the customer submits their order to your cart. Includes a prompt check so that the customer can review their personalized text for accuracy first before passing it to the cart.
Add a Checkbox your customers must click before buying
This is the way to help make sure your customers have agreed to your Terms and Conditions. A checkbox displays on your product page form. If the customer does not check the agreement box, the purchase will not pass to the cart. Instead, an alert box will display to prompt the customer to check the agreement box. Simple setup you can copy and paste. Instructions are included.
The latest copy of the script(s) will be sent to you via email usually within 48 business hours after your order is processed. As customary when purchasing computer programs, there are no refunds. We are not responsible or liable for your use of any script. In the event Mal's cart features or code changes in the future, or browsers change, we are not obligated to recode or redo the scripts. Because of the inexpensive contribution asked for, the right is reserved to limit or not provide free tech support. The scripts are intended for stand-alone use not to be combined as they may conflict depending on the combinations. The scripts require similiar setups in most cases. Therefore, use of more than one script at a time on the same site/pages may cause conflicts that render the scripts inoperable. If you're purchasing two or more scripts it's assumed that you intend to use them separately or at different times or on different sites but not together.
