CW Eshop - Documentation

How CW Eshop works?

CW Eshop is build on MVC structure with implementation of AJAX and jQuery features. CW Eshop provides and e-commerce solution for JomSocial community. It offers common goods and also digital goods. Logged users can choose items and add them to a cart. During checkout user can fill in his address (for case of common goods to be shipped). Instead of real money, users pay with their userpoints.

If user makes an order, a message is saved into JomSocial Activity Stream and userpoints taken.

User can see their orders in their JomSocial profile with My Orders plugin

If user has ordered a digital goods - there is a link for download a file in order list.

Using native Joomla ACL offers setting access permissions for eshop products to different usergroups and access levels.
