The shopping cart plays a very important part in the success or failure of an online business. One of these shopping carts is VP-ASP, which comes with a complete set of powerful e-commerce solutions. This VP-ASP review highlights some of its special features.
Setting up VP-ASP takes just a few minutes and does not modify the client’s computer in any way. The installation will be over as soon as the zip file is unpacked and the setup wizard makes it easy to get started. There is no need for any plug-ins or system updates. Shopping features are simply turned on depending on current needs and clients can set up a complete shop within one hour just by adding products.
Users have the ability to add as many products as they would like in unlimited categories. Such features as radio buttons, drop-down lists, check boxes, quantities and fill-in text give buyers a great shopping experience. Products and prices can be displayed in a variety of ways.
The clients can control all images on the server using the new Asset Manager for HTML editor and they can have several images for the same product. They can also choose to hide products automatically when they are out of stock or display out-of-stock messages and then send notification emails automatically when the products have been restocked. There is also a new RSS product feed.
Design and Layout
The new Layout Manager makes it easy to change the layout of a Web site without worrying about the underlying code, complete with advanced search facilities. A mini cart is always visible and there are over 350 configuration options.
VP-ASP provides more than 100 electronic gateways, including PayPal, Verisign and Authorizenet. It supports dual currency displays and currency conversions in real time, which is compatible with any type of currency. Other important features include PIN number delivery, secure digital delivery, points rewards and recurring billing. A 3 to 4 number may also be required to verify cards.
A number of features are built in to prevent hacking, including security alerts in case of insecure pages, IP to country checks and various internal security checks. Accessing Administration requires dual-password login and admin is placed on a separate folder.
For a hands-on VP-ASP review, users may install the fully-operational free version of the shopping cart before ordering any package.
