The discount system software on…
If you are buying a cow, make sure that the price of the tail is included
Today, any entrepreneur working in the field of wholesale and wholesale-retail trade has to pay attention to the computerization of their own business. As a rule, the basis of the infrastructure of such a business is an online store built on the basis of one or another specialized CMS. The website of such a store, as a rule, performs a wide variety of functions, both in terms of customer service and in terms of sales management functions from the side of staff. Unfortunately, the diversity of the function of the online store itself ends where the preparation of data for such a store begins, as well as when it becomes necessary to implement specific functions, such as a discount system or prompt scaling of prices for certain groups of products. Of course, this article is not about expensive software packages, but about an ordinary site built on a standard free "engine" such as Wordpress/Woocommerce.
Of course, there are many free and paid plugins for free CMS that allow you to set up a discount system. However, as they say, the very diversity of life does not allow it to be implemented in one or another popular theme. That is why for the complex automation of the accounting of production and trade processes, it is necessary to use specialized software, made according to a project for a specific customer. One such project has been implemented by the programmers of our web studio. The description of this project contains the technology for product importing. Within the framework of this article, we will show how the problem of implementing a multi-level discount system for a trade enterprise was solved.
The basis of the discount system are categories of buyers and a system of differentiated prices for each product and for each category of buyers. In addition, a pricing scheme is established for each product, in the form of a constant in the national currency or in the form of a number of conventional units.
- retail buyer;
- drop shipper, or dropshipping buyer;
In addition to the data in the import file, the information can be edited in the admin panel of the site. The administrator also has the ability to assign a particular status to any customer. In order to receive preferential status, the buyer needs to go through the online check-in procedure.
After the buyer is granted preferential status, he gets the opportunity to place an order at reduced prices for all products for which preferential prices are set. Information about the preferential status is contained in emails that are generated automatically in order to notify the buyer about the relevant online store events. In addition, after completing the login procedure, an information panel about the presence or absence of preferential status appears in the upper right corner of the browser window.
The task implementation
- the Google Recaptcha algorithm integration;
- lost password recovery;
- resending a letter to recover a lost password;
- restriction on the frequency of sending a letter to recover a lost password;
- the procedure for account activation by sending an activation link to the user, or manually, by an operator from the admin panel of the site;
In this article, we have given a description of just one of the possible options for organizing the pricing process in a medium and large wholesale and retail company. If necessary, the programmers of our studio will adapt the algorithm to any specific customer requirements.
