Customising order confirmation page (messages.htm template)

This is the final page that appears during the shopping process. Its primary aim is to thank the customer for buying from your site and tells them how they should make their payment in case their payment was by using one of the offline payment methods. Typical information that could be included here is;

Who to write the cheque/check out to and to which address to post it to.

Bank details if payment is to be made by electronic means

other special instructions for the customers

Link of page on your site where customer can go back to for further shopping /info.

Step 1: Getting unformatted copy From BazaarBuilder

Download the "default" copy of checkoutconfirm1.htm from BazaarBuilder to start the customization process. The default checkoutconfirm1.htm contains no formatting as it must be me customized according to each your website's design. To get the template via email;

  • Select "Download Templates". Choose the default templates (unformatted) or one's you may have uploaded.
  • Select messages.htm
  • Enter your email address where the default templates are to be sent. NOTE: On occasion some email clients such as Outlook do not receive the email attachments correctly. It is advised that you try using an alternative email address from hotmail , yahoo or any other web based email system.
  • Press Download


Step 2: Modifying The Templates.

After receiving the template via email, open it in your favorite web design tool such as Dreamweaver and customize it till you are satisfied with its layout. You may already have a page built that acts a template for your site's design. In this case simply "cut +paste" the downloaded page into your site and save it as checkoutconfirm1.htm. This template can be uploaded as in step 3 and the process repeated further till you are satisfied with the design.

The default template contains special variables which look almost exactly like normal HTML tags. Each of these variables represents a data for the concerned products that was inserted in the Catalogue Builder section. As long as these variables are included in your pages in their given sequence, you have complete control on how each of the pages is customized to match the rest of the website.

Note 1: Take special care with setting the directory paths to various images and style sheets that may be used on the page. By default ALL the images will be stored in following directory: /bazaar/username/images/ (where username is YOUR own username that was registered with BazaarBuilder). Only GIF and JPG images are allowed. So if an image named globe.gif is used on the pages then the path would be /bazaar/username/images/globe.gif. Some design tools such as dreamweaver automatically the directory paths so its always worthwhile to double check these before uploading the page.
