Most template sites just
offer you files to download and leave you with all the hard work
of integrating the design in your osCommerce e-commerce shop.
This is why we, at Elluscient Technology
Solutions, LLC, do all of the template integration and development
work for you. The process is very simple and explained below:
With our team of professional web designers
and software developers we can provide a slick look and additional
functionalities to your osCommerce e-commerce web site.
Most site owners find their e-commerce site lacks that edge that
would differentiate them from their competitors.
We provide that additional professional
touch through the following services:
||osCommerce technical support.
Contribution development and customization.
Contribution installation on new or existing osCommerce systems.
Complete shop installation.
And of course osCommerce hosting!
We can of course apply those skills to the various osCommerce
spin-offs like ZenCart (www.zencart.com) and creLoaded (www.creloaded.com).
The choice is entirely yours!
Elluscient Technology Solutions, LLC focuses
on the design aspect of your (future) e-commerce site. With our

|Once you have
placed your order, we are in constant contact with
you until the end of the project. We will integrate
the template, with your logo and your pictures into
the latest osCommerce shop available. The project
usually takes 10 working days and you will be able
to monitor the progress of your site at any time!
|After the integration process
is completed, we either install the shop for you or
send you all the files required, depending on which
options you chose. Installation is free if you are
hosting your site with us, and carries a small charge
if you want us to install it for you.
Our client wanted a slick, professional look for their online
presence. They chose a stylish template from our extensive
range. Our templates cover a wide range of products, so customers
have a choice of suitable templates.
We recommended CRELoaded for use with this project. CRELoaded
is a spin-off of osCommerce, but has the benefit of additional
features developed by the community and the CRELoaded team.
This gives the shop owner many more options without the
need to install contributions.
This template also included a header created in Flash to
finish off the look.
This client has recently returned to us to apply a new
design to another site.
Frequent Asked Questions
You will receive a full working shop, not
just graphics files. The installation process is then as it is
for a standard osCommerce package.
You can pay using your credit/debit card
through our secured payment system, or PayPal if you have a PayPal
Once payment has been cleared, we would
start the integration work. This phase typically takes 10 working
days, depending on the complexity of the template you have chosen.
We would carry our integration work on one of our demo servers,
where you will be able to see the progress.
When you are happy with our integration work, we will send you
an email with a link to your template, which you will just have
to click to download.
If you have chosen to use our hosting services, we will install
and configure your osCommerce for you free of charge!
Since we offer non-tangible goods, no refund
will be issued once the template has been delivered.
If you are not currently operating a shop,
the installation process is exactly the same as it would be for
a standard osCommerce package. You need to upload all the files
to your server, and follow the installation process. You can of
course choose the easier option of hosting your shop with us,
in which case we would install it all for you!
If you are currently running a shop, you will have to be more
careful. If you sent us all your files before we start the project,
you will just have to overwrite your existing files once we have
finished our work (Don't forget to always make a backup first!).
If you haven't sent us the files, you will have to check some
files manually (if you have installed contributions for example).
If you already have a shop, the best way is to contact us before
the project starts, so we can evaluate which is the best way to
approach the osCommerce template integration.
Once you have received the template from
ourselves, you are free to apply any modification to the design
you wish for. You will obviously need to have some knowledge of
a graphic package to make the changes. We would recommend keeping
whichever images you change to the same size as the original if
you want to avoid having to change the code as well.
A lot of companies now already have a website,
and want to take an extra step by starting online commerce. Their
osCommerce site needs of course to be in keeping with their existing
site, in which case we are more than happy to use your existing
site as the template!
Other companies already have a design in mind, and we can start
from this as well.
It depends on the payment gateway you are
planning on using with your shop. If you are going to collect
credit card numbers on your site, you should most definitely have
an SSL certificate, or customers will just not use your site.
Even if you are not collecting credit card details on your site
(if you use PAYPAL for example, or 2CHECKOUT), you will find most
customers will be reluctant to create an account on your osCommerce
This is entirely your choice, and depends
on your needs and budget.
A shared SSL means that customers will access the secured parts
of your site through a shared secured domain (like https://www.elluscientwebhosting.com/~yourshop),
which is as secured, but maybe not as professional looking as
a dedicated SSL which would show the secured parts of your site
Please note that a dedicated SSL certificate requires the purchase
of a unique IP.
We use the latest version available from
the official osCommerce site (www.oscommerce.com) at the time
of your purchase. We can of course use a different version if
you wish to (if for example you already have a shop using a previous
version of osCommerce).
If you want us to use a different shopping cart, we will use the
latest official version available (unless asked otherwise by yourself).
Of course! We have integrated our templates
with different platforms, be it ZenCart, creLoaded or oscMAX.
It is really down to your preferences: Some people prefer osCommerce,
and then install the contributions they need and nothing more,
and some people prefer ZenCart or creLoaded because it ships with
dozen of contributions already built in.
We can give you impartial advice on the matter, and help you decide
which is best for you, since the template integration price is
exactly the same, regardless of your final choice.
