Hi Guys,

OK, let me explain this one.

I have a site set up and configured on a .com domain. The same domain in a .co.uk has been added to the host headers in IIS so that when you type in a vpasp page for either .com or .co.uk it shows the page.

HOWEVER, becuase the configuration is set to the .com domain, when going through the checkout process you loose the products that have been added if you entered the store through the .co.uk domain.

Is it possible to overcome this withought having to duplicate the site for both .com and .co.uk?

The reason I ask is becuase im not getting good google results in the uk and using the .co.uk would be a great advantage.

Regards,

Mark

Mmmm.

OK, I have successfully made a purchase through the .co.uk domain, it seems that the cart gets lost where the scripts call

<%=strDescURL%>

For example in the minicart.

Any way of overcoming this?

Regards,

Mark

OK, I think i have overcome this by making some code changes to shopproductsubs.asp

I will let you know how I get on, or i should say, come accross anymore problems.

Hi Mark,

Sorry, cant't help with the tech bit, but I had a look at your site and found a few areas where you may be able to increase sales.

Terms and conditions - couldn't find these.
Privacy policy - I don't know what you are going to do with my info, so why should I buy from you.

But the biggest problem I found was that I couldn't find any info regarding shipping. Fireworks are dangerous, so if I wanted to buy them via mail order I need some reasurrance that they are going to be delivered properly. Also how much does it cost to deliver them?

You've got plenty of information about safe displays, but as a customer I want to know how much it is going to cost me to get them, when I am going to get them and how I am going to get them.

I think that if you address these issues (especially the shipping issue) you may find your sales increase so you don't have to worry so much about the tech bits.

Steve
