Well it took a little bit longer than any of us hoped but we finally went live with the House of Beth online today. The main cause of the slowdown was gathering the data for the shop. The site launches with over 1500 products and 29 Departments. The launch of the store marks the second store in as many months using the new Dragnet Systems Online Store Software. This software is proving quite popular for us and we have already signed up another 4 websites to use it over the next few months. This site also used Realex Payments as the payment provider. In the next few days I will post up a sample C# script on how to get that system working for anyone else looking as Realex don't provide any asp.net C# code for their 'Redirect' style of payment.
This website also features a new promotions tool for offering discounts to customers either automatically or manually. This tool is very flexible and allows the site admin to offer either a percentage based offer or a fixed amount offer that can be used multiple times or as a once off.
In other Dragnet news I'll be launching a new charity website in the next day or two called KerryWayCancerWalk.ie. I'll chat more about that as soon as the site launches.
