Junk In Our Trunk is an online consignment boutique, featuring and selling an array of items made by independant designers. Items such as Handbags, Clothes, Stationery, Bath and Body, Baby Gifts, etc.
Zen-Cart actually just came out with a cool new book - it might help you with some of the features you`re not tapping into, JIOT.
Fabulous, thank you! Maybe I will gift it to my business partner.
And thanks to all for your direction with the specials feature. Glad to hear all of the positive comments on Zen-Cart in general as well. It`s nice to know we`re working with a good product.
Another xcool Zen Cart feature is the ability to set up specials - special pricing for a specific date range. You can set the start and end date of any special.
I was "just" wondering if that feature was available because I have an idea for it. Would this be set up under Catalog/Specials or in the GC/Coupon section? I would like to be able to direct my biz. partner to it when I suggest using it.
As an e-commerce site owner - We used OSCommerce on our old site and were pleased with it. The only reason we do not use it now is because when we decided to have the site redesigned, the designers and programmers that we chose work with ZenCart, which is very similar.
Back to OSCommerce - it was very user friendly and worked well for what we needed - credit card transactions, the use of coupon codes, etc. My business partner is the one that had the most "use" with it being that her job is to maintain the site but with even my limited experience and knowledge of it, I would recommend it to others looking for an e-commerce solution.
I`m trying to clear my schedule in order to attend so I can`t confirm 100% yet but I am hoping to make it.
RE: Agenda - I agree that each person giving a 10 min. presentation might be a little much. In another group that I am in there are regular meetings every month and there are always new ones in atendance so before the meeting gets started, each person in attendance will stand up and give their minute or two elevator pitch. Goes by pretty quick and it can be as simple as stating your business/project name and what you do + possibly what you are looking for or need from the network. That way everyone can keep an ear open for who they want to make more direct contact with or might have a referral or tip for.
