This is alex from singapore. I am trying to setup an online store that sells our local phonecards. After installing the soholaunch pro edition and going through adding a category and product shopping cart tutorials, I have the following questions.

1-what is the speical tax rate box for? Is it for giving discounts to customers?
2-I would like to have an automate email that tells me that my stock of a particular product is runnning low so I need to replenhish it. Does bluevoda has such a feature?
3-How do I create templates that are similiar to those professional online stores?

Basically, I want a site that only give discounts to customers who opt-in by giving them a coupon code through the autoresponder. I am able to monitor my stock count and inform me when its running low via email. The stock that I am referring to, is a total number of pin codes(100cards = 100 pin codes) from the various phonecards. Therefore, when the customer purchase a particular card, a pin code and other info will be revealled via a pop-up (a.k.a thankyou page).

I am quite lost here and would appreciate if anyone could help me in this learning curve.

Thanks In Advance

Go through the tutorials again, several questions are answered there (taxes and setting up your e-mail)


Your own creativity will allow you to creat a very professional page. Plan your site layout on paper if needed.

Hi Bill

I have one more question here. I would like to create a set of pin numbers for a sku product. Therefore everytime a customer buys that particular product, he will receive a set of pin number, if the qty is 3 for example, he will have 3 sets of pin numbers.

The only way they can receive it is after the payment is made and is reflected on the invoice. Question is, do I need a custom php script to produce such a feature? I don't how to write one and where can i learn it ? If I don't need a script, how do I go about it?

Thanks In advance
