  • Full FoxyCart API integration

    Thanks Adam!

    We've worked real hard to bring BLUcart to life and we have a lot of great ideas to extend it even further. I'm hoping people see that it's a great solution for FoxyCart and MODX that will be fully supported.

    We just uploaded a video to YouTube showing how easy it is to add products... it's not the best quality and we will be posting more videos, in HD soon!

    Custom Order Statuses
    Create as many order statuses as you wish, customise each with a specific email template that is sent to your clients and fulfilment team. Email templates allow for placeholders to customise each with a variety of information, such as first & last name, order number, who the order is being shipped and more.

    We've been hard at work all week on BLUcart - making things a little prettier and adding some new features.

    Dashboard Layout Update
    We've improved the look and feel of the Dashboard, including some stats and update the recent order view with a grid.

    View Matrix Stock & Pricing Differences Quickly
    This grid shows all items categorised under the ultimate parent directory and shows basic stock levels, pricing - now with enhanced overview of matrix variation stock and price differences.

    Order Information - In Detail
    View all details related to a specific order - quickly update details, set overall order status; supports part-order management.

    Fulfilment Simple Overview
    After an order has successfully been fed from FoxyCart, the order is then ready for fulfilment. Quickly see order fulfilment statuses, including part order statuses, who is to receive each item if multiship is enabled and more.

    Why not manage task reminders within BLUcart? Using a simple to use calendar, add special task reminders, delivery notices or staff notifications.

    BLUcart Officially BootStrapped
    We've simplified BLUcart themes by integrating Behavior-UI & Bootstrap

    Harnessing the power of Behavior UI, an exceptionally powerful interface driven behavioural markup and the ease of Bootstrap theming - BLUcart customisation is revolutionised.

    We've also upgraded FoxyCart to 2.0 and streamlined the cart process within the site, creating a super-fast cart solution. Using Bootstrap and SASS, customising the actual look of the store is fairly straight forward and won't take too much time at all.

    BLUcart has seen a lot of work on the backend as well.

    Tree Node Refresh
    Refreshing a tree in extJS can be quite resource heavy, on many occasions it's unnecessary to refresh the entire tree - we've enabled each container or product category to be refreshed individually. A massively convenient and useful feature.

    Product Duplication
    We know that when it comes to rolling out multiple products that are relatively similar, it can be a bit of a pain to create the same product and options over and over - we've built in product duplication to simply the whole process. We've taken it even further when it comes to duplicating products to other contexts with the click of a few buttons.

    Product Template Selection
    Sometimes products need a different layout from others, the best way to achieve this is to utilise MODX's template features. Each product has the option to select which template to use, providing even more flexibility to product themes.

    Built In Ticket Support
    Send us tickets directly from BLUcart! When you have an account with us, you'll be able to open and update tickets from within MODX itself. This all links in to your account area held within our website so you can access tickets there as well.
