I've been looking for an e-commerce solution that works with Umbraco.
I'm currently looking at Tea Commerce and would like to know whether I can
run multiple stores separately on a single installation of Tea Commerce on
Umbraco, and what the licensing implications of this.
I would be interested to know what the best practice is for hosting multiple
e-commerce sites within Umbraco.
Thank you for any help on this.
Every installation of Tea Commerce works as only one store, so that would be a no on your question. We are not planning on supporting multiple stores with one installation as that would overcomplicate things. We want to keep Tea Commerce simple and easy to use.
The current version of Tea Commerce only works with one language as well, but we are brewing on a larger release which will allow a store to run on multiple languages.
If you want more stores you will need separate Umbraco installations, with a Tea Commerce on each. This would be the preferred approach in most cases as Umbraco is wasy to install and you will be able to keep the stores separated.
I hope this answers your question. Otherwise you are welcome to ask again :)
Thanks for your reply and help on this.
Can you point me in the right direction regading multiple installations of Umbraco because how I understand it should be installed in the WWROOT.
Thank for all you help.
P.S. I'm sorry, I think I may have posted this twice please ignore the duplicate.
Yes that's correct. Each installation of Umbraco must have it's own folder in wwwroot and seperate databases. Each of these can then have a one store Tea Commerce installation.
Is there a multi domain licence or will I need a licence for every installation of Tea Commerce?
Thanks for your help.
There is only a top level domain license at the moment - 349€ pr domain. We are working on a partner program where you will get advantages after a couple of Tea Commerce sites. Like solution provider logo, discounts etc. So you would need a license for every top level domain you would like to support.
If you have any thoughts for a partner program, we would be glad to hear. You can mail them to info [at] teacommerce.dk
I hope you got the information you needed. Please mark the answer so others can find it. :)
Can I just ask a slightly different version of this same question.
I'm thinking of using TeaCommerce, and I will have a short term requirement for two separate baskets on our one website, one for our publications, one for our courses. They will eventually use the same payment gateway, and therefore we will only need a single basket. Because its a short term requrement, I'm happy to use the API if required to achieve this - if I was willing to do some customisation code, could TeaCommerce operate two baskets?Thanks,
Are you sure this cannot be achieved with just one cart?
In Tea Commerce you have full control over your cart xml and can display it as you please. You would be able to show one type of orderlines, say publications, in one place and the rest in another place of the website. You only have to make the filter in your xslt. It will be presentation only as the items will still be in the same cart.
Of course you would have to make some sub calculations if you need to show the total price and such. Nothing that xslt could'nt handle i suppose.
But as for your question. Tea Commerce can not run two carts. Only on different domains and therefor different sessions.
Thanks for your reply. I am keen to use Tea Commerce, as I'm looking for something lightweight and confiurable, and which ties into the existing doc type structure rarther than needing its own content tree, so I'm still interested.
Re: the two carts - I did wonder if it was manageable with a bit of configuration and code. Presume I can use Razor as well as XSLT with the cart presentation?
Presume I can also sort the two different payment gateways out too? We currently use two different payment gateways for our pubs and courses. The pubs uses a UK based set up, and the courses will use Barclays ePQD, neither of which you support ouf of the box, so I'm guessing I'll need to write those mysefl in any case.
can we use two separate cart for two websites in single install tea commerce?
Of course you can use Razor. Just make a using TeaCommerce.Razor and then ex. TeaCommerce.GetOrder()About the two carts - I dont think it can be done without copying the entire Tea Commerce cart layer :)
Thanks. OK - in terms of two carts, I think I need to let go of that one, and think about just implementing our course functionality, and migrating our publications basket to TeaCommerce when it uses the same payment gateway.
Look forward to the payment provider API.
Just follow the @teacommerce twitter account and you will be notified when we release the new version of Tea Commerce
I think the last remaining obstacle to using Tea Commerce for us is the multi-cart issue.
In the short term, I do really need two separate carts running within the same site that end up going to two different payment gateways.
Just wondering if your thinking has changed at all about a multi-cart option, and whether there is any way achieving this that I can use.
We have now disussed it and will not be implementing that feature anytime soon. I do have a solution to making multiple carts, but we are not willing to spend the time on implementing it right now. We don't believe that we will earn the money spent back. It's too much of a corner case.
Sorry about that.
If you found one of the answers helpful could you please mark it as the solution so others can easily find the solution
OK, thanks for thinking about it again.
Can't mark a solution - guess because I didn't start the thread. High-fived instead.
