But as said ecwid looked nice at the beginning but now I see many problems knocking on my door. And I am playing with this tool just for a view days.
Each store owner has his/her own workflow and the list of requirements, so no shopping cart can match all the possible requirements out of the box. That's why we're working hard
on making Ecwid even better to suit any needs you may have : -)
Thanks again for your tip! I have checked it out and discovered another problem. Each time somebody uses this Free Payment method I have to confirm the 0 EUR payment! I want to offer some high value 3D models and post this offer on some high traffic sites. This checking and confirming could easily ruin my day. But if I don't check this 0 EUR payments people will use this method to get hand on the non free stuff.
1. All the orders, placed via so called "offline" payment methods, get the "Queued" status. This status means that you haven't got money for these orders yet.
If an order has the "Queued" status, Ecwid will not send a link to an e-good. The links are sent with the "Accepted" status only. I think this is right too, because a customer should get a file only when he/she pays for it.
2. However this workflow doesn't work good when the order total is zero and you want to give away some files for free. That's why we're planning to add a feature, which will allow to :
- simplify the checkout process, when the order total is zero. I.e. it will not be necessary to choose payment method in this case
- also we will add a new option, which will allow to switch all the free orders to the "accepted" status automatically, no manual work will be required.
This change is already in our road-map.
