I don't use it on my invoices, or anywhere in the IPS interface. I have a custom perl script which imports my products (from XML) and another perl script which generates the reports I need. Those scripts write and read data from the custom field as needed. The IPS interface has no idea the custom field exists.
I use the 3rd party MaxMind service to do anti-fraud checks. Within Nexus, I use the " Customer's billing address is valid" setting. I guess I misunderstood this. I was under the impression that this setting would ensure that a buyer's billing address matched the one from their credit card. Well, it turns out that is NOT the case: I spoke to a MaxMind technical rep, and they told me that they are never passed the actual billing address. He made some suggestions for IP Nexus. Developers: please listen! Feature requests from MaxMind: For all transactions, pass the country code over to maxMind... especially when you pass foreign phone numbers. For all transactions, pass the credit card BIN (Bank Identification Number) For all transactions, do an AVS check. Contact MaxMind for specifics. For me, as a user, I just want the peace of mind of knowing that if somebody puts in a fake address, that they will not be able to buy my products. Because that happened today. A person put in an obvious fake address (they put in the address of the U.S. White House) and they were able to buy my product. ... And no, the customer was not Barack Obama. ;-)
You can do this. Create your product (T-shirt) Create your custom field (size options) Associate the custom field with the product Under your list of packages, click the middle icon that looks like a box ("Product Options...") This will allow you to increase the price for the t-shirt based on size,
I have a large community website incorporating pretty much the entire IPS community suite. With IPS4 coming soon, I'd like to hire somebody to convert my skin over to the new version, and do some other modifications.
Please PM me if you're interested. Experienced vendors only, please.
Dear Nexus developers: this is a big one. I really hope you're listening. This matters a lot to anybody who wants to use Nexus for BIG (1,000+ item) stores.
If I have an item for sale in Nexus, the *ONLY* place to record its price information is in the basic price field. This field is limited to:
What the current price is
Nexus does not track promo prices, discounted price, bulk price, or sold (historical) price.
This prevents us from being as competitive as we could. You know how Amazon shows you the MSRP of an item ("$22.99") and then strikes it out to show their price: $22.99 13.99 ? We need to be able to do that. We need a way to be able to set a base price and a discounted or "current" price.
A single currency
Items often cost different amounts in different currencies. They are not always straight currentcy1-to-currency2 conversions
This makes it extremely difficult to offer the same item to multiple regions of the world. As much as we'd like to have Things on the Internet cost the same for everyone (subject only to their currency), that isn't the case. The reality is that many items can only be made available in different regions. Limiting an item to only a single currency dramatically limits and significantly-sized store where there are many hundreds of transactions per day from all across the world.
We also need better reporting for all this price-related stuff, but that's another matter for another day.
Thanks for making a great product. Here's hoping we can evolve it to be even better.
My online store uses Nexus and has over 2,500 items in the store. I hand-wrote a custom script to regularly import and update Nexus db because my inventory changes nearly on a daily basis. This works fine.
The challenge I have is that my storefront isn’t all that great. It’s very hard to browse through those 2,500 products and find something interesting. Are there any plans to provide a more robust Nexus storefront in the next major version of Nexus?
The search feature works, but doesn't yield very good results (ie, it searches ANYWHERE and does not prioritize things like the product name). Also, the results show the full product description, which is clunky.
You can't filter on anything (price, availability, rating, size, etc)
There's no "Other items like this...." feature
Here's my store front:
Can I get some "likes" or feedback on this post so we can collectively ask IPS to improve the scalability of this product?
