Welcome to our AbleCommerce modifications and customizations
page. AWCS.net has been working on AbleCommerce stores since
2000. We have done just about every modification that can be
asked of for an AbleCommerce store, far too many to list
here. No customization is too small or too large for our
team. One of our philosophies we operate by when working on
your site is that we want you to be in control of your
website. Time after time we get new customers who have
existing stores that tell us the stories about how they got
their store modified by some company and now they can’t make
changes. At AWCS.net we don’t operate that way. When we get
done modifying your site we want you to be able to make the
changes you need when you need to. We are experts at
automating routine tasks such as daily order exports to pull
into shipping or accounting systems, updating product prices
automatically, synchronizing data between two stores and
many more. We also have done many custom layouts utilizing
AbleCommerce custom fields on product pages and others. We
can do just about anything you would want an ecommerce site
to do with AbleCommerce.
Below are a list of different
modifications that we have performed on other clients
stores. Please feel free to contact us to see some of the
modifications we have listed and to discuss what we can do
for your store. Click Here to send a request for
customizations. We look forward to hearing from you.
Description : Created one-page and two-page checkouts for customers
that combined the Basket, Billing, Shipping, Payment methods in one page.
This has resulted in significant increase in sales for companies
that needed to reduce the time spent on checkout. Also, increases the
conversion ratio of add-to-cart to checkout.
Sample Links :
Description : Customers can select items and add to cart. The price is not made available.
And in lieu of online checkout can submit for a quote request. Once the customer gets the quote (via email or phone), can complete
an order via the same medium. This feature does not utilize the wishlist option as that requires a login
Sample Links :
Checkout process - Order Review page
Description :Normal AbleCommerce flow does not provide an Order Review page before completing a purchase.
This customization adds a review page that shows the basket items, billing and shipping address and payment information.
All the above are editable and once customer hits Confirm, the purchase is completed. This provides an option to check all changes
before confirming purchase.
Sample Links :
Terms and Conditions on Basket page
AbleCommerce Version : 5.5 - CodeBehind
Description :This customization allows a "Accept Terms and Conditions" on the basket page that forces customers to
accept the company Terms and Conditions before proceeding. The actual Terms are provided as a hyperlink that shows up a pop-up window.

Custom quote feature
Description :The client sells custom embroidery, screen printing on clothing and apparel. The custom quote features allows
customers to select the product to customize, add text or upload images for printing, along with required contact info and submit for a quote.
This makes the backend purchase go quicker once the customer agrees to the quote.

Home Page - Specials
Description :This customization allows the customer to select products to display on the home page and are allowed up
to 4 products to showcase
Sample Links : KCHilites, AmericanRestorationParts, CalMuscleParts, PerfumeDiscounter
Description :This extensive customization to the AbleCommerce shipping page allows the client - at a product level -
to specify Additional Handling Fee, Free Freight, Not Eligible For Freight, Flat Shipping Fee. Also, a different set of shipping options
if the order total exceeds certain fixed amount or if the basket items are from mixed categories. All the settings were managed via Able admin using
AbleCommerce Custom Fields options for product and it has significantly cut the client's time and effort in calculating shipping cost for each order
at the backend.
Sample Links : AmericanRestorationParts, CalMuscleParts
Description :This extensive customization allowed the following : customer can come to the site and order and item and -
optionally - select the item to be autoshipped at a set interval (monthly, quarterly, etc). A separate backend WebService (and wrapper
windows application running on a daily fixed schedule) will then process daily the orders that need to be autoshipped that day, and proceed to
add the items to the customer's basket, set shipping methods and - using previous payment methods that are stored securely - complete the checkout and
generate an order. Automatic error and fail-safe mechanisms allow logging those that fail to complete the order successfully and can be processed
the next day.
This has significantly reduced the client's time and effort in processing daily autoship orders manually.

Custom Export of AbleCommerce Data for backoffice processing
Description :The standard AbleCommerce export of data is not sufficient for most of backend order processing systems
like GreatPlains, etc. We have extensively customize the exported data to fit several backoffice programs. The export of the data is either
made available through AbleCommerce administration itself as another Export option to be run manually or has been deployed as a Windows application
to run on fixed schedules and export data to third-party FTP locations to be processed. The exported data can be XML, Pipe or Comma separated or fixed width.
Sample Links : AmericanRestorationParts, GTechnology
Custom Export of data for third-party fulfillment company
Description :This customization provides, on a weekly basis, an export of all orders on the client's site to a third-party
subscription fulfillment company to process the magazine subscription requests. The data is fixed width and presented as four different files based
on subscription type.
Sample Links : Zoobooks
Froogle - automated
Description :This customization allows the automatic generation of Froogle feed (same as AbleCommerce does manually) on fixed weekly schedule
and upload to Froogle's FTP site.
Sample Links : AcornNaturalists
Customizing product pages
Description :The AbleCommerce product page has been extensively customized for various customers to include display of additional
thumbnail and enlarged pictures, display the Options of the product as a matrix rather than usual AbleCommerce dropdown display, display color
selections with actual color images by customizing AbleCommerce Product Options, and MORE!!
Sample Links : YoCar, SchoolSavers, etc
Multiple Store - syncing products
Description :This customization to AbleCommerce admin allows the client to designate the retail store as a master catalog
for products and allows selecting certain products to be synced to Wholesale site. The price, and other product attributes also get carried over.
The modification has provided significant savings on time and effort in creating the same products on wholesale side of the store.
Sample Links : Galison
Custom Reports in Able Admin
Description :Provided additional reports in AbleCommerce admin for analyzing abandoned baskets, top sellers in products, etc
Sample Links : GPS Store
Integration of AbleCommerce store with a static site or third-party store
Description :Clients who have static sites with products without an eCommerce store at backend were easily
integrated with an AbleCommerce store at the backend. The integration allowed easy transition from the product pages on the static
site to the basket page on the AbleCommerce storefront and proceed to checkout. The static site can be on the same domain as the storefront
or on a different domain. AbleCommerce' flexibility allows easy integration at all levels.

Custom Landing pages with same-page checkout
Description : Combine AbleCommerce product/category page and all checkout pages to create a custom Landing page that has
product description, billing and shipping address, and payment option. Customer can thus do the entire checkout in one page. Additional feature
was the option to allow the same product to be purchased as a gift to be shipped to a different address.
