THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN SETTING UP YOUR CANNABIS ONLINE ORDERING SOFTWARE:

CATEGORY HELPER

1. Working with Categories

Here's how to use the new category features for the Adilas E-commerce. These features are for the AFB clean mobile template. This section assumes you know at least the basics of creating your own categories within Adilas. If you are looking for the Edit Categories page inside Adilas, go to the Classic Homepage - System Reports - Item & General Inventory Homepage - More Options (top of the page) - Add/Edit Item Categories.

Category Picture

Category Picture: Category Picture is fairly easy and straightforward. We recommend 750px width, 563px height (750 x 563). Different sizes of images will make display options look different. Whichever picture size you choose, make sure it's standard across all images. Image 

Category Description

Category Description: Category Description is another easy one. Simply put in the description of what the category is and you are done. Note that this field allows for HTML. You can place links, headers, bolted lists, downloadable documents, and more into this HTML compatible field. Image 

Category Aliases

Category Aliases: Category Aliases are a way for you to change the verbiage for the extra fields that are connected to items. These fields are Web Long Description, Web Review, Web Specs, Web Video Link, and Web Alternate Message. Each can be named something different according to the needs of the category. For example, Web Long Description has the default Alias of Description. You can change the word description to Terms and Conditions. Take a look at the images and see where these category aliases show up. (Note that the Alternate Message is not included in these pictures but will be described below.) Image 

Category Alternate Message

Category Alternate Message: Category Alternate Message is similar to the Category: Aliases mentioned above. The Alternate Message can be named something different depending on the situation. It can also be used in one of four ways per category: used not at all, New Tab, Extra Info, and Send via E-mail. The Alternate Message New Tab can be utilized to store more needed information in a tab format. The Extra Info section shown below the Add to Cart button on the Item page can be used as a disclaimer or extra information reference. The Alternate Message can also be a per item message that can be sent via e-mail. This allows you to send links, downloadable documents, specs, instructions, and more based on invoice purchase. Image 

ITEM HELPER

1. Working with Items

Instructions for how to use the New Item Features for the Adilas E-commerce: These features are for the AFB Clean, Mobile Ready template. This section assumes that you know at least the basics of creating and entering your own items within the Adilas system. In this section we wish to show you some of the fields and how they will be displayed in the new AFB Clean, Mobile Ready template. The fields are Item Number, Item Category, Item Description, Show Item on the Web, Show Price on the Web, Shipping Type, Shipping Cost per Item, Web Long Description, Web Reviews, Web Specs & Additional Information, Web Video Link, and Web Alternate Message. All of these fields can be edited on the items themselves. On each section there should be a picture to show where these fields are located inside Adilas itself.

Images should be uploaded to each item within Adilas as you would like it to appear on the web. To Upload images, select the image icon and select add/edit photos. 

Not to worry if you do not have images for every item, Within the e-commerce settings, you can select a default image for any item that does not have an image uploaded within your Adilas system. In this case, you have one image, choose carefully.

Item Number

The Item Number is synonymous with the Item Name. It shows up in multiple places in the E-commerce including in the Display Options, the Item Page, View Cart, and other pages. Following are some examples of where the number shows up. Image 

Item Category

The Item Category field simply allows you to put a specific item in a category to facilitate easy searching. For example, a Baby Ruth candy bar could be put into a category of Candy. The category name itself also shows up in multiple areas around the site. Here are a few examples. Image 

Item Description

The Item Description can be thought of as a Short Description. This Short Description shows up on multiple pages in the E-commerce. In certain pages and display options it is reduced to a lesser amount of characters for aesthetic appeal, like in the Icon Boxes, Header Cart tab, and others. Here are a few examples of where the Short Description shows up. Image 

Show Item on the Web

This setting allows you to decide whether or not an item will be shown on the web. Image 

Show Price on the Web

This option allows you to display one of five different Show Price settings on each item. Options are Cost, Current Price (default), Hide-Don't Show Price, Special Web Price, and Zero Price. Image 

    • Cost - The Cost option allows you to show your at-cost price for your customers. Image 
    • Current Price - Current Price option allows you to show whatever the sale price of the item is. Image 
    • Hide-Don't Show Price - This hide option is a special kind of hide. It allows the item to display contact links instead of a price. This allows your customers to contact you if they are interested in an item by providing links to your Contact Page per item. See image for example. Image 
    • Special Web Price - Special Web Price is a type of sales feature. It allows you to cross out the Sales Price for the item and replace it with a new Special Web Price. Image 
    • Zero Price - This sets the price of the item to $0.00.

**All price options will be displayed in the item display modes as well as on the Item Detail page.**

Shipping Type & Shipping Cost Per Item

There are two different types of shipping options: Per Item Flat Rate and Dimensions. Currently (7/28/2016), Dimensions is not a usable option. The Shipping per Item Flat Rate allows you to attach a specific shipping fee per item. Note this flat rate will always apply no matter which shipping option you have. If you wish to use the Per Item Flat Rate, make sure you put a value in the Shipping Cost per Item field. Image 

Web Long Description

The Web Long Description for the AFB Clean, Mobile Ready template is used in a tab format on the Item Details page. This Web Long Description also has another use in the Description Table display option. It is pulled in as a longer description for the item. Note this field allows for HTML. You can place links, headers, bulleted lists, downloadable documents, and more into this HTML compatible field. Also, you can change the name of the Long Description per category.

CORP WIDE SETTINGS
The first step of e-Commerce is set up through your corp wide settings, under system management from your Classic Home Page.

69.
Show Corp On The Web:
*
Include Specific Stock/Units
Include Parts & General Inventory This setting applies to the ability to show your inventory (units, parts, services, etc.) online to your customers. If the show corp on web setting is set to "No" (default), the system will allow you to use all of the pieces internally for normal system use but will not allow outside viewers (general public) to see anything outside of the secured environment. If you choose to let outside viewers see your inventory, the data is passed over the Internet via a web services to a separate server for the general public to see and use. The information is very basic and includes photos, descriptions, contact info, search options, reports, and basic pricing. A great addition to your existing website or may be used as a standalone webpage for your business.
70.
Inventory/Web Settings:
Show Stock/Unit Prices
Show Part/Item Prices
Show Contact Page

Special Web Price

Special Web Price Name (full value)

Web Price

Abbreviated Web Price Name (short)

www.adilas.biz

Return To Website Address These settings are in addition to the show corp on the web settings that are set above. For the record, they (above) take precedence over these settings. These only apply if access is allowed. There are two show/hide settings for showing prices on the web (these are global or general settings - there are also individual settings per item). Checked means show and unchecked means hide prices. The default is checked or show all prices. Each individual item (part numbers and stock/units) has their own price settings that are controlled on a one-by-one basis. As a note, there is also a bulk update permission for web settings that allows individual items to be updated in bulk. The setting for the show/hide contact page deals with an additional page that shows locations, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses on the customer webpages. The special web price name (full value) field allows you to name what you want to call any special pricing. Some ideas might be: special web price (default), sale price, internet price, blowout price, etc. The abbreviated web price field is a smaller version used on reports. The default is web price. The return to website address setting deals with a return link from the pre-built customer webpages directly back to your main website or homepage. The default is www.adilas.biz.
71.
Advanced eCommerce & Email Settings:
There are 20+ super admin level settings for eCommerce.

** as a note, there is a link at the top of the page that will let you change these settings. Some of the settings above deal with showing content and inventory on the web. This is called "web presence" and is controlled on the world level (your business and/or corporation). The eCommerce settings require a few more pieces and have a dependency on certain other pieces being in place or being set prior to use. Some of these other settings deal with credit card accounts, merchant settings, customer logins, access to the backend eCommerce functions, emailing invoice functions, and options to allow customers to lightly interact with the actual database. Because there are some inter-dependencies that are required, these settings were originally reserved for the super adilas admin level administrators (adilas universe level). We have since opened the settings up to allow world level administrators (you) to interact with the settings. See the link at the top of the page to check the admin settings. If you need help with the admin corp-wide settings, please

USER PERMISSIONS
View Web Inventory:

This permission provides a quick link to the adilas.biz web/customer application. This is a section of special pages that allow for stock/units and web inventory to be viewed outside the protected environment. All data is "View Only" and filtered to show a customer friendly version of the underlying data. This allows information and photos to be shared with the general public without a secure login.

Id=85

AND:

Manage Web Inventory:

Description: ermission color code

This permission allows the user to update and manage special customer web settings such as internet pricing, show/hide options on the web, and other inventory specific settings. The settings may be applied or modified per part number or per stock/unit.
