Categories help you present your products clearly, no matter how large your product range is.

Some eShop packages let you arrange your items hierarchically, creating an eShop with depth.

Creating New Categories

To create a subcategory, click on the category’s

folder to open it, and then click on Create.

Category Navigation

Click on the folder icon in front of the category name

to expand or collapse the entire directory tree. The

four arrow icons in the position column allow you to

description in the text field. Under Product category

image or URL, type in the file or path or upload an

window. You can edit the text in the text box and

Click on Finish to save your changes.


eShop Design


A clearly laid out eShop encourages customers to stay and buy. It is good business sense to create

a shop that reflects your company’s image and that is easy to maintain and use.


24 eShop Design

To customise your eShop’s templates, for example to

offer items in another language, click on Shop

Design. To modify a shop design template by changing

the navigation graphics and buttons, go to Manage

Template Images in the left navigation bar.

The table shows the file name, type, and size. The

image size is in pixels. Click on Next to see the next

fifteen images. Use the buttons next to the each

Further design modifications are available under the

top tab Settings. Choose Advanced Settings

from the left navigation bar. In the Advanced Settings

table click on the tab Design.

Creating Your Own eShop Template

All eShop packages allow you to create the entire

shop website automatically, and completely template-based.

Depending on the chosen eShop package, advanced

users can develop or change both template and

script files to determine the appearance and

functionality of their eShop.

While this option is the most effective, it is also the

most demanding. Therefore we recommend it for

experts only and those who have an extensive stock,

or who would benefit from automation because of

frequent changes to the products they offer.

7. Publish Your eShop

Shop Preview

Click on Shop Preview located in the top navigation

bar of each page to view your shop in a new

window. It shows the recent changes made and you

can use it to test functionality and design.

Product Search in Shop Preview

Product Search behaves differently in the preview

than online. The shop preview uses a simple full-text

search of all data. This search function is designed

for testing and HTML design development. However,

the process is generally slow and becomes less efficient

for online use when there are too many items.

Publish your eShop

To make your eShop available on the Internet, you need to put it online by publishing it.

Online Shop Efficiency

Caching (intermediate storage) is used in your published eShop. After publishing, the first time a visitor visits your

shop, your eShop’s pages are created dynamically by your eShop’s web server. The server saves a copy in the

cache. Until the next publish, visitors will see the cached eShop pages. This system allows your eShop to load

quickly and it allows many visitors to browse your eShop simultaneously. The caching mechanism is not used for

the shop preview, so you can instantly test any of the changes to the configuration or programming of your shop.

Shop Preview vs. Online Shop

Any changes to your shop’s product range and

design will only affect the development version

(shop preview), and will not be copied into the

server’s public area (online shop) until the shop is


The search function in your online eShop utilises a

very fast, highly efficient, index-based search process,

similar to the one used by most search engines.

A new search index is generated automatically when

you publish your eShop.




26 Publish your eShop

Publishing the Shop

When you are ready to put your eShop online, click

on Publish shop tab, and then on Publish shop

from the left navigation bar.

The development version will be copied from the

bs_shopdata directory into the shopdata directory

(the abbreviation bs stands for back stage). Your

shop can be reached at the URL displayed in the

Current Settings section.

Publishing may take some time, depending on the

size of your eShop. The status of the process appears

under Current Settings.

Online Shop in the left navigation bar takes you to

your live shop on the Internet.

Viewing the Online Shop

The URL in the address bar of the new browser

window refers to the directory shopdata and not

the bs_shopdata from the backstage directory.

This means that you are viewing the online shop

(and not the preview). Carefully check your

online shop to make sure it meets your requirements

and is working correctly.

8. Your eShop Orders

Order Processing

Click on Orders to see an overview of your folders.

All new and unprocessed orders can be found in the

navigation bar. Then click on Create.

The orders can be viewed in a table below the folder

table. Each line details a single order.

Click on Details next to the order you would like to

work on. You will see the complete order and your

customer information including the customer

number, shipping and payment methods, additional

payment information, items ordered as well as the

invoice details. From the left navigation bar on the

Details page, you can choose to print the order or

the invoice, to register the customer or to trace an

order’s history.

Once you have processed the order, you can select a

folder from the drop-down menu and move the order

to this folder. This is found in the information about

the order section.

system) you will see a note in the order information.

Click on Register This Customer on the left.

Each customer is assigned a password at registration

which you can change.

Customer Notification

Under Notify customer by e-mail, choose yes

only when informing the customer of the registration.

Click on Finish. Your customer will receive an e-mail

with their customer number and password.

Status of Order and Payment

You can see the payment status in each order’s

details. Use the drop-down menu to update the

status. Change the order status by moving the order

into the appropriate folder (the number of available

order statuses corresponds with the number of the

folders in Order Administration).

You can change the payment status from pending to

cleared. To set up more status types, click on General

Settings to open the Payment Methods wizard

on the left navigation bar.

Order Search

Under the tab Orders, use the search options in the

left navigation bar to browse through your orders.

To find a specific order number, use the Search for

order number option by filling in the number (or

the first few digits) and clicking on Search.

For a specific order, you can use Search all orders.

Enter a keyword — an item name or a customer

number — and click on Search. All orders matching

your search request will be listed.

9. Your eShop Customers

Customer Summary

Click on Customers to view a table listing the data

for each customer as well as selected customer


Your eShop Customers

Keep a database of registered customers. To manage the database, divide them into groups.

Assign special propertie. You can send newsletters or search for a customer using the database.

Click on Mail to add the customers to your current

mailing list. Customers who indicated that they do

not want to be included on the mailing list or have

not supplied an e-mail address, are identified by a

red x, and will not receive your newsletter. The other

buttons Edit, Details, and Delete help you to

update your database.

In the summary table, the customers are listed by

customer number. When a customer number is allocated,

the system checks that it is unique, as this is

also the customer's login name for your eShop's

service area.

A Note on Blacklisted Customers

A previously banned customer, who does not supply

their customer number, can still place an order.




30 Your eShop Customers

Edit Customer Data

In the Customer Summary table, choose a customer

by clicking on Edit next to their details. This opens

the Edit Customer Data window enabling you to edit

or manually enter all important customer details.

Step 1

You can choose whether to allow a customer to
