Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit http://support.3dcart.com.

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart's service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Very Important Rules:
* Never give away your store administration login/password in this forum.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.
Also, please be aware that 3dcart staff will NEVER need to ask for your 3dcart related passwords.

General Rules:
* While debate and discussion are acceptable, we will never tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
* Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsensical posts, or similar postings.
* Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
* Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
* We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature.
* Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping posts.
* Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
* Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
* We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
* We also reserve the right to remove postings which are in violation of our specified posting rules
* Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
* You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
* You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
* We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. A banned customer is still entitled to support from the support system, but will not be able to participate in the forum.

  • Dynamic Category Filters - is anyone using this paid feature?

    UPDATE: Upon speaking with 3DCart it seems that there is a product they sell called FusionBot, which would probably meet my needs. So, I shall create another post asking if anyone is using FusionBot. Thanks!


    Hi, I am still very new to 3DCart, but am getting the hang of some of it. My site will be a Made in America products site, and I know that I need product filtering by all of the basic elements such as color, size, etc. But I have a special need, which is to "grade" the products by how American-made they actually are. I have a 5 star grading system I'd like to implement, which will require me being able to accomplish this:
    • 5 stars = American-owned company, with product manufactured in America and made of materials 100% sourced from America
    • 4 stars = American-owned company, with product manufactured in America and made of materials substantially sourced from America
    • 3 stars = American-owned company, with product manufactured in America and only a small percentage of the materials sourced from America
    • 2 stars = Foreign-owned company, with product manufactured in America and made of materials substantially sourced from America
    • 1 star = Foreign-owned company, with product manufactured in America and only a small percentage of the materials sourced from America

    Can anyone tell me if the Dynamic Category Filters will allow me to create and assign this type of filtering?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

    ... Connie Z


    This is the info I found on the 3DCart site about this product:


    https://apps.3dcart.com/category-filters.html

    Dynamic Category Filters ($499)
    Dynamic Category Filters provides functionality with the creation of a set of scripts that will automatically generate the categories/subcategories needed to be used as filters, and assign products to those categories dynamically based on:
    [LIST][*][SIZE=14px]Product

    If you're only looking to have filters within the category than the category filter app is all you need. To add a new filter you create a new category (Ex: Product Grade), then mark it as a category filter. After this you create the 5 grade ratings as sub categories, then attach these to the products.

      Just noticed your update. If you want filters applied to your search I would say that fusionbot is the best option. Fusionbot has samples here: https://www.fusionbot.com/customers.asp

        Thank you Joe! I had seen another thread covering FusionBot which you participated in, and commented there with some questions.
