In Progress

Boltoner Featured


I need to have an e-commerce web site finished. My programmer returned to university so could not finish it.

Thanks for looking at the project. The initial description of the project was as follows:

The site is going to be an e-commerce site that sells remanufactured laser

and inkjet printer cartridges. I want the layout to be as simple as

possible. Many of the sites are too "busy" and have too much information and

too many links on one page. I want to make the ordering process as simple

and logical as possible. I have the domain name of [url removed, login to view] and my

web host is The shopping cart software program currently

installed is Ruby on Rails. I have no preference with regards to which

shopping cart is used although I would like it to interact with QuickBooks

to some extent although even this is not essential.

I have a supplier who is going to store and ship the products for me. When a

customer places an order on my site, my supplier will need to receive an

e-mail from the site with the order information such as Customer Name,

mailing address, products and quantity ordered. I would like this process to

happen automatically without any input from me. My supplier will then send

an e-mail to me once the items have been shipped to confirm the shipment and

to give a tracking number. I would like the customer to receive this

information automatically too. However, it cannot be the same e-mail from my

supplier to me because that would include my supplier's information such as

name, address etc. I do not want my customers knowing my supplier's

information. As far as my customers know, it is me personally sending them

the products. The products are shipped to the customers with my company name

and address on the packing labels.

The product list is going to be quite large, that is, several hundred

products. I am open to suggestions on how best to manage this list. Whether

it be a database or spreadsheet etc. Prices are going to change from time to

time on some products so I would like to be able to change certain prices

fairly easily. Also I will need to be able to add and delete products.

When someone buys a printer they normally keep it for a while. Consequently,

return customers are probably going to buy a cartridge that they have bought

from me before. Rather than take the time to search for their cartridge

again and enter their personal information again, I would like it if they

could login and once they are logged in, they will see the cartridges they

have bought before and their personal information will already have been

entered so basically with a couple of clicks, they can place an order. Just

in case they need to search for a different cartridge, because most people

seem to have more than one printer these days, they will also be able to

search the site etc once they have logged in.

At this time there will be three categories. Laser cartridges, inkjet

cartridges and copier toner.

I will want a database of customer information for marketing purposes etc.

However, things have changed a bit. I have one corporation Dot E Biz Inc.

[url removed, login to view] and several DBA's. One of them is (See

project guidlines above) I will want each DBA to eventually have their own

website but the shopping cart will go through

The programmer who has been writing the script gave the following as a

description of the work flow:

This is the workflow:

1. Cart created on Boltoner.

2. Checkout button clicked.

3. Redirected to Dotebiz for payment with SSL with cart_id.

4. Dotebiz queries [url removed, login to view] through webservice. This retrieves the total

in the cart and the user information.

5. Payment received and thank you page displayed.

6. Boltoner is notified that a new order was placed. This order is saved in

the database.

7. Supplier is notified that a new order has been saved.

8. You are notified too. You can log into Dotebiz to retrieve a huge list of

all the orders that have been placed. This uses a webservice that connects

to Boltoner (and any other sites you own). (Note, you can also log into the

Boltoner site to see products and orders placed in the that site.)

The website design is still not finished. Links to the current design are
