V. 2.3. Features
- The module take one product from “specials” or specific product from specials (one by one) and display it until end date and time is reached. At the verbs starting point and anytime he consider, the administrator can setup the end of the deal for a specific product. Then the system is doing all automatically.
- Upcoming products can be added (special price for pre-order)
- Specific products from specials can be marked to be considered when the counter is zero and a new product will be displayed
- Initial end time can be anytime in future (24 hours is default value taken at the end of the period)
- Once the counter is zero there are three automated actions that can be setup:
- The counter is reset and 24 hours are added.
- A new new product is taken randomly from “Specials” (all product enabled in specials) and 24 hours deal time is setup.
- A new new product is taken randomly from “Specials” (only marked products and enabled) and 24 hours deal time is setup.
- Left quantity can be shown or not
- Can be setup to sell over stock or not
- If stock is zero and the system is setup to sell over-stock and left stock is setup to be shown, then when the page is (re)loaded the left quantity is replaced with a slogan: “Do not miss out”.
- If the quantity is 0(zero) and sell overstock is not allowed then a new product is taken from specials and the counter is restarted (24 hours)
- In any circumstances if there is no other products to chose from enabled in specials then the existing one is extended as Deal of the Day (24 hours).
- If there is any predicted error then Deal of the Day is not display on the web page. A short message instruct the owner what he has to do.
- The “Deal Of the day” section (eCommerce website – front end) will contain a box where are displayed:
- image of the product taken from database (link to the details product page)
- short description, truncated at 250 words (default) and read more – link to the details product page
- old price & new cut price taken from database
- the countdown (to the moment when this offer will expire)
- quantity left (if it is setup to be displayed, it is taken from the database)
- BUY NOW button (link to the details product page)
- Custom text displayed on top line (set up from admin area)
- FaceBook like button. Full url (link to your product page, image and short product description will be sent to the FaceBook “wall” of the user who liked the product.
- Deal of the Day is working in the most complex scenarios for example:
- display an unique end of deal time does not matter where is the user (time zone/country)
- that end of the deal is the real one setup by the administrator based of the local time of the administrator computer (setup as parameters at initial configuration)
- at the same time the “locals” of the hosting server where the website is hosted and the locale from zencart does not influence the counter.
- To change layout (background image and button – buy now, is as simple as creation your artwork and uploading in a specific folder
- All parameters are in one place only and you can change what you wish to display: – image & image size (ratio is kept), -name of product and description, – how many word from description, – text alignment -image alignment, – font size for slogan (top).
- Administrator can and must setup his timezone and UTC (the same config area) for example timezone:Australia/Sydney and UTC: 11
