In preparation for Umbraco CodeGarden 11 this coming week, ProWorks has created a Commerce for Umbraco Sample Website and Starter Kit that you can download and try out for yourself! This site is similar to the starter site the ProWorks uses to create e-commerce sites.
Included in the sample site:
Commerce4Umbraco_ExampleSite.zip - Web Files
Commerce4Umbraco_BuildScripts.zip - SQL Scripts to build the database without a backup
If you have any questions about the sample site, please comment below!
Excellent demo site...shows off the capabilities of Umbraco. The Style Guide page is a nice addition.
Are usernames/passwords available to access the back end?
Sorry I forgot the login! :)
Let me know if you have any issues getting setup.
Hi. What is the admin login/password for the Umbraco site admin ?
Many thanks for the great example.
Is it possible to enable/add Paypal option to 'How Do You Want to Pay' section?
I know its a bit cheeky but would you have a copy of this dbase in sql 2005. I am still in the dark ages I am afraid.
I'll try to get some SQL Create scripts up here, would that work?
In addition, I think we have a 2005 version I could migrate it to and upload here.
I have gone through your instructions and I get a blank screen when I view like noting is published and the user account & password do not work. Any ideas?
I'll do a test install and make sure I didn't miss a step
I am having trouble displaying product images, both on the product pages and the product details pages. It looks like anytime ImageGen is used. All homepage images display ok, as do product zoom images. I have removed and re-installed ImageGen. Any ideas?
I am having an issue where product images doe not display in product pages or product details pages. Other images such as rotating images display ok... seems to be a problem displaying images with ImageGen. Also unable to add or change product images in backend. Using XP on localhost, IE or IE8. Any ideas?
Irek, there is some PayPal support. I think I may have some time to get a blog about payment providers up.
ImageGen does try to cache a local version of the image. Is it possible that the media directory doesn't have write permissions?
If you can't get ImageGen to work, we can replace it with the Image Cropper.
Yes, I have. Support voicemail is full and no response via emails from online or via my mail server. I have left voicemail to sales with no reponse. I am a previous paying customer that can’t seem to get any response from sales or support. I have been trying to make contact for a month now :( . Can you help, Jason?
I guess ProWorks is out of business? Can’t seem to contact anyone here.
Is there a latest version of the source about anywhere? The one on codeplex looks to be from May 2009 but the assemblies in the download 07/2011. Im very interested in getting a store up an running using this and i’ve now got it working on 4.7.1 umbraco but need some other functionality.
One of the functions is order line discounts where the price comes down the more you order. Without the source im not sure how this could be implemented. Any pointers?
Are there any docs in regards to the payment providers and other areas where it could be easily extended”properly” rather than hacking it about?
Does anyone have documentation on how to have website entities in different database tables than those of Umbraco and also have a search for that – just like commerce4umbraco does
The one on CodePlex should be pretty up to date. Look for the latest changeset here: http://commerce4umbraco.codeplex.com/SourceControl/list/changesets
There’s one in August.
As far as discounts, we generally use coupons to affect price (free shipping, discounts, etc). We have implemented a concept of an “auto-applied” coupon which may work in this case. Let me know if you think that concept might work and we can connect or roll it back into the source.
Documentation is very light. I could write a blog post about payment providers here. I’ll try to put that on my Christmas list :)
Its actually not too hard to figure out for yourself. Take a look at the classes in the dashCommerce.net project and the Services > PaymentProvider folder. The AuthorizeNetPaymentProvider.cs should be a good example. CyberSource and PayMeNow also should be implemented pretty well too.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
If you want to use separate tables, you would need to generate your own data layer classes in your favorite ORM tool. Commerce4Umbraco uses SubSonic. We have used Linq for SQL in the past and it works great.
Then depending on what you want to do, you could reference the data layer classes directly in Razor scripts. Or you could built on XSLT Extension that uses the data layer and returns XML depending on the function. Of course, you could also build a user control to handle everything.
Does that help?
Thnx Jason, Will reference ur reply whn I play around with that in the next 10 days – much more helpfull than the Umbraco user guide. Thx
Based on the friendliness of Umbraco and my experience in Umbraco from webprojects – I am considering choosing Commerce4Umbraco for my ecommerce solutions -
Is this project still running? I see the sourcecode in Codeplex is a beta that was uploaded in May 2009. Should I be considering Ucommerce instead –
Discounting for the XSLT instead of Razor; I found commerce4Umbraco more user friendly for both developer and admin user.
The project is still running. There isn’t much in the way of features planned in the near future.
If it helps anyone, to get the sample working in a medium trust environment after setting:
I had to upgrade the Umbraco installation to 188.8.131.52, and delete the following dlls from the bin folder:
Peter (and anyone else) Did you have any other issues when updating to 184.108.40.206? I am currently in the process of upgrading, basically doing a manual merge and replacing any new dll files. Anything else I should be aware of? Thanks.
I need a reply urgently I need an additional database to add to umbraco ucommerce or only with a database can run? greetings, thanks
Mike, I’m not aware of any specific issues. Please post any you find.
Luis, Are you asking about uCommerce or Commerce 4 Umbraco?
uCommerce! thanks for request
The following files seem to be missing:
They are referenced in the Media – [Commerce] – Category Tree tab.
