Managing orders, customers and shop settings is a breeze from the SwipeStripe admin area.
From the settings area you can manage everything from order notification emails to common product attributes and if you have any SwipeStripe extensions installed you can manage them from
Products are now exclusively managed in the site tree, making it easier and more familiar for CMS users to create, edit, sort and manage products.
It also means users can leverage all the cool new site tree features, like bulk editing.
And split view editing.
Even filtering the site tree so that only product pages are visible.
We have added an awesome new product gallery extension, making it easier than ever to drag and drop product images, then reorder images with click & drag and edit captions.
We think you will love editing and managing products in SwipeStripe and using all the great new features SilverStripe CMS has to offer.
Not only does SwipeStripe support basic products, it also supports product variations.
Products such as teeshirts which might require customers to specify a size and colour. Product variations can be managed easily when editing products in the CMS.
You can even specify how much a variation increases the product price by.
Attributes can be easily added to a product - you can add as many attributes as you want, you can even sort them to specify the order they appear on the product page.
Name attributes whatever you like...
..and set as many options as you like for each attribute.
Once you have finished specifying product variations SwipeStripe will do the rest - displaying all the available options on the product page for customers to make their selections.
We know how tedious data entry can be, thats why we created "common atttributes" - allowing you to create attributes once and then easily apply them to many products in your shop.
Its simple to create a common attribute, and some options...
...then apply the common attribute to a product and viola - the attribute and all its options are created for that product, easy!
Managing product variations is labourious, with SwipeStripe we've tried to make it as pain free as possible.
In the SwipeStripe shop admin area you can search through your customers easily by surname or email address.
Editing a customer is nice and simple, you can even delete a customer - but only if they don't have any orders!
In the SwipeStripe admin area you can search for orders using a range of different criteria.
The order summary is exactly what the customer sees.
We've made it easy for you to update orders according to your order fulfillment process.
You can add updates to an order, changing the order status or leaving comments that can be made visible to your customer if you wish.
Your customers can view their orders at any time from their account.
Ecommerce order fulfillment has never been easier!
Search Engine Optimisation
In SEO content is king and with SilverStripe we think you'll find that editing content has never been easier.
We've constructed SwipeStripe so your product pages have unique, concise and well optimised URLs - and no duplicates!
Meta keywords are dead but if you want to specify a meta description for the SERPS it's easy.
Ecommerce is going mobile, quickly.
Our responsive design for SwipeStripe ensures that your shop is accessible and presentable to the full spectrum of mobile devices, from smart phones to tablets.
You customers will be able to view their orders from anywhere, anytime.
With SwipeStripe you won't be left behind as ecommerce goes mobile.
SwipeStripe uses the latest payment module that was designed specifically for SilverStripe 3 during Google Summer of Code 2012.
All the gateways supported process the payment on the gateway website - so you don't need to worry about SSL certificates or PCI DSS compliance.
All you need to do is install the payment method you want and customers enter their credit card details safely and securely to complete their orders.
Order email notifications are easily configured from the SwipeStripe admin area, a complete order summary is included in each email.
After each order is processed email notifications are sent - you will never miss an order again!
The product categories extension helps you to categorise products easily - you can assign products to as many categories as you want.
Product categories paginate the products on display, making it easy for customers to browser your store.
Note: This functionality is part of the Category SwipeStripe Extension.
The shipping extension allows you to easily set shipping rates for different countries from SwipeStripe shop admin.
Creating a shipping rate is simple, select a country and set the amount.
When your customers enter their shipping address at the checkout the shipping rates for that country will become available, customers can then pick which shipping option they want...
..or if only one option exists for that country the rate is selected for them.
Note: This functionality is part of the Shipping SwipeStripe Extension.
Our basic Tax extension provides an easy way to create tax rates.
A tax rate is applied when an order is shipped to a certain country...
..and it is applied after the sub total of the order is calculated so that shipping rates are included.
Note: This functionality is part of the Tax SwipeStripe Extension.
With the SwipeStripe addresses extension you can specify which countries your shop will ship orders to...
...then enable your customers to enter their shipping and billing address information at the checkout.
Customers can enter a different billing address if they need to.
By default SwipeStripe does not require shipping and billing addresses when a customer makes an order, making it perfect for shops that sell digital products or memberships.
Note: This functionality is part of the Addresses SwipeStripe Extension.
We have put a lot of thought into providing the simplest multiple currency ecommerce solution for SwipeStripe - creating exchange rates is simple.
Your customers can easily select which currency they would like to use.
Once a customer choses a currency everything in their order is converted.
Payments are still processed in your base currency so you don't need to juggle currencies and exchange rates when keeping your books!
Note: This functionality is part of the Currency SwipeStripe Extension.
Discounts and sales can be a great way to attract customers, the SwipeStripe coupon extension provides an easy way to manage discount coupons.
Customers can easily enter a coupon code at the checkout and get an instant discount on their order...
..or they miss out if the coupon is expired!
Note: This functionality is part of the Coupon SwipeStripe Extension.
We've worked hard on the design of SwipeStripe so that the code is simple, modular and uses well known SilverStripe development practises.
SwipeStripe has undergone rigorous real world testing and along the way we have refined the software so that it is flexible enough to handle a wide range of ecommerce requirements, from booking systems to memberships, not to mention regular shopping carts!
We're confident you will be able to mould SwipeStripe to your needs with class inheritance and extensions.
If you don't know what that means don't worry! It just means we like simplicity just as much as you do.
Numerous unit tests are included with SwipeStripe testing the most important parts of the system, and more tests are added all the time - so you can be sure your online store is running like clockwork.
We have tested SwipeStripe in the real world too and thus far the results have been excellent.
We want SwipeStripe to be bullet proof and constantly strive towards this goal.
We've made SwipeStripe easy to "theme" by including all the template files and using low priority CSS selectors.
SwipeStripe comes with a clean but generic look and feel that should fit right in to most websites, but if you want to change it you just need to alter the template files - it's simple!
We should have some new SwipeStripe themes coming soon so stay tuned!
