Here is an older list of some of the add-ons and modules we have created for Interspire that are available today (just contact me if you want something, changes are I have it already built or can build it pretty quickly (this is really old but important for my blogs SEO for please look past the simple layout and crude graphics)):
Voucher / Coupon Add-on w/ Verification Portal
This modification allows you to create Vouchers / Coupons that get automatically generated by select products you can configure in the back-end administration panel in seconds.
The vouchers generated can use any graphic or HTML layout and automatically place the voucher number created (the algorithm used to generated the voucher numbers is configurable) onto the graphic to be printed by the customer. The add-on also supports bar codes if needed. You can dynamically generate vouchers with the Vendors name, include a description of the product the voucher was generated for (such as 1 Spa Treatment or 1 Free cup of coffee redeemable by the Vendor the product is associated to). The voucher can include any information you need displayed and will even automatically generate expiration dates (which are configurable as well).
I have also created a verification system that allows vendors to browse to a URL and simply type in the voucher number to verify that it is valid and has not been used. The system doesn’t check to see if the voucher has a valid format, it checks a database to make sure the coupon was generated and associated with a valid order. If the voucher is valid the vendor can mark the voucher as used to prevent customers from sharing the vouchers. This setup allows you to be sure that no one will be able to take advantage of the system by generating fake coupons / vouchers.
This add-on can be configured anyway you need it to work for your business. The client who initially requested this add-on is using it to sell various packages from vendors in the local area. If you are utilizing a bar code system the module can be configured to work with a wide variety of setups.
When a purchase is made that will create a coupon the order confirmation email contains a link to allow the customer to print the coupons. An additional email is also sent containing just the vouchers for quick and easy printing. If the voucher needs to be reprinted at anytime the customer can simply log into their account and view their order history. From the customers order history screen they can also print any vouchers generated with that order.
Recurring Billing / Subscription Support
This addon which allows you to accept recurring payments with Interspire Shopping Cart! Currently, the module works with Authorize.net but I can easily add support for any payment processor currently supported by Interspire.
The addon currently supports the ability to choose which product you want to set for recurring billing as well as the length of the billing cycles. Customers have the ability to view all current subscriptions, records of each payment and they have the option to cancel their current subscription. When the time comes for a bill, the addon will bill the customer and in the backend of the cart the order will appear in the orders page. The customer also will receive an email notifying them that their product has been purchased.
FedEx / UPS / USPS Integration Add-ons
These Integration Add-ons for Interspire is aimed to alleviate the monotonous task of duplicating data entry to and from the shopping cart and various shipping providers.
When utilizing any of these shipping Integration Add-ons this process is simplified to a single click. Any item(s) that are currently in the “Awaiting Fulfillment Status” are processed.
UPS Integration Add-on
1) Description of the Integration Add-on
The UPS Integration Add-on for Interspire is aimed to alleviate the monotonous task of duplicating data entry to and from the shopping cart and UPS.
When orders are placed into the cart and the funds have been received, items are placed into an “Awaiting Fulfillment” status in the administrative backend of the shopping cart. At this point under normal circumstances, the information entered by the customer, such as address and method of shipping need to be entered into the UPS Online Tools via the management console provided at ups.com. After the information has been entered into UPS and verified, the shipping department is then required to go back to the administrative backend of Interspire to enter the tracking number generated by UPS, then update the items status to “Awaiting Shipping”.
When utilizing this UPS Integration Add-on this process is simplified to a single click. Any item(s) that are currently in the “Awaiting Fulfillment Status” are processed. (NOTE: The UPS Shipping Tools API does NOT come by default when a shipper signs up for UPS Online Tools. This tool is a premium tool that has to be requested by the shipper. Verification can take up to 48 hours before an access key will be supplied.)
2) Utilizing the UPS Integration Add-on
After the add-on has been installed, the add-on needs to be activated. In the upper right hand corner of the administrative backend simply click Addons > View Addons.
(This is a view of the add-ons settings page that you will see)
Simply click the UPS Integration Link then click “Save”. Now you can access the UPS Integration Menu next to General Settings.
Simply input your UPS login information and click “Save”. Now the add-on will appear in the Orders menu.
(Location of the add-on in the backend administration console of Interspire)
(Once clicked you will see the following screen)
Once the shipping department browses to the UPS Integration Add-on, the add-on will search all the records in the database and display the number of items currently “Awaiting Fulfillment”. Once the “Get Labels” button is clicked all of the orders are then submitted to UPS Online Tools. The addresses are verified against UPS to ensure accuracy. Then the tracking numbers are generated and orders are entered into the system at UPS. If there is an error with one of the orders then add-on will instruct you which order has an error and tell the user what the error was (e.g. Incorrect Address, Invalid Phone Number, etc.)
As soon as the add-on has finished processing all labels will automatically be sent to the Thermal Printers queue and be printed off in bulk. The status of successful orders will be changed in the backend to “Awaiting Shipping” and the tracking numbers will be automatically entered into the backend of the shopping cart. At this point the customer is then emailed with their tracking number and status of the package. The shipping department simply needs to package up the items ordered and apply the label from the thermal printer and UPS will pick up the parcels at the next designated pickup time.
Drop-ship Integration API / Sell products & manage orders on remote sites
The API allows storeowners to utilize a single installation of Intespire to manage products and orders across multiple storefronts regardless of the platform being used on the other sites selling the products. The API is also designed to run by utilizing Interspire to simply manage all the products and orders placed on remote sites without actually selling any products locally. The front end can be completely disabled.
Some clients I have worked with either make use of the Vendor edition of Interspire, which effectively allows them to give Vendors access to the backend of Interspire and upload their own products. When orders are made the Vendors are responsible for fulfilling and shipping their own items. Some clients don’t sell any products of their own and simply sell products that their vendors add to the product inventory. Interspire is setup to handle these sorts of stores with no problem, but there currently isn’t a very good way to export this data and make the products available on other store front, regardless if the stores or powered by Interspire or another shopping cart software.
This API allows for a storeowner to integrate with other storefronts, regardless of the cart being used without the need to create multiple backend consoles or shopping cart installations. The API creates up to date product feeds on the fly to be loaded into other websites, Interspire or not. So the goal is to allow other websites to sell your products (or products from Vendors you manage). So all orders, inventory levels, product descriptions, etc are sent via a CSV or XML feed to a remote site where the data can be parsed and placed into that stores database. When orders are made on affiliate sites the orders are sent back to the API and the orders are placed into the Interspire backend the same as if orders were placed on the Interspire cart locally. The product inventories are automatically updated and the products feed accurately reflect the new product inventory levels based on the orders reported. When the orders are fulfilled or the status is changed the new status and tracking information for instance is then passed back to the remote site. This seamless integration allows for a single Interspire installation to handle orders form various sites without the hassle of creating multiple product inventories and forcing vendors log into multiple backbend’s to manage products and orders. This setup drastically reduces duplication of work and reduces the chances for human error.
The module needs to be customized for each unique scenario but it is setup to communicate with remote sites via CSV and XML formats or by even remotely updating remote databases.
Advanced Reporting Addon
This add-on is a backend-reporting console that allows storeowners to quickly view vital statistics in regards to how their store is performing. All reports have the option to choose date ranges from which the reports generate their data.
Some of the data displayed on these reports is available from the backend of Interspire but this add-on displays all the data is a easy to read format. All reports are sort-able by the various columns to be either ascending or descending.
This add-on is particularly useful when you are dealing with multiple Brands / Vendors and need to keep an eye on the speed and accuracy that orders are being fulfilled.
All reports can be for the most part customized to display whatever data you might possibly need. Whatever report you need, I can most certainly code it to be used with this add-on.
Some of the reports this add-on generates…
Daily Snapshot – This report displays the current daily sales, total orders and quantity of items ordered. Also recorded are lists of all current orders that are new, stale (orders that have been placed X days ago but have still not been fulfilled) and late orders (same as above but older that stale orders). (X is a configurable variable)
Sales by Brand / Vendor – Displays a list by Brand / Vendor of how many products were ordered and the total revenue of the products ordered.
Top 25 By Revenue – This report shows, which products have generated, the most revenue, the total revenue generated and the quantity of items sold.
Top 25 By Units – The most popular products and the amount of the products sold.
Average Processing Speed – Shows the average time is takes for vendors / brands to fulfill orders.
Late Shipments – Shows the number of shipments that vendors / brands shipped late and calculates a percentage of the late orders to total orders.
Fill Rate – Total percentage and number of orders that were placed and fulfilled.
MP3 Media Player for your product pages
Play music files on your product pages! With drag and drop admin panel! This addon allows you to add sample tracks to your product pages. Using a highly skin-able open source player (http://www.flabell.com/flash/Flash-Mp3-Player-29) you are able to create a beautiful player that looks great! The player also has the ability to “Share / Embed” on other website and when the Buy button is clicked the user is directed back to your product page so the user can purchase the item!
The backend features a robust system allowing you to choose which products you would like to add music to. Simply choose which mp3 files you would like to attach to a product and upload files to your server. You can configure how many samples you would like as well as the titles of each song. After you have all the samples you would like the addon supports drag and drop ordering of the playlist associated with that product. The addon also allows you to assign a image to each album you add. Need to delete or rename a file? No problem, its just a simple click of a button!
Sales Tax Reporting / Sales / Affiliate Payouts
This add-on allows you to generate various reports by state or as a whole to show how much sales tax has been collected in between selected date ranges.
