  • Attribute Configuration

    Attribute Configuration


    “商品特性”能允許您在某一項產品上,預先設定可供顧客在訂購時選擇更合適的產品細節,而且有效減少收到訂單後的種種跟進工作。

    例如您正在售賣的西褲,應該具備不同的“顏色”、“腰圍”、“褲長”等,以供顧客選購,而透過“商品特性”的預先設定,您便可自定產品選擇上的各種“選項名稱”和“選項值”。

    當完成設定所有的“商品特性”後,您便可參考及使用下一節指南介紹的“商品特性管理”,逐一為指定的產品套用合適的“商品特性”。

    為有效管理“商品特性”及避免日常汲及的產品管理及訂購單出現混亂,強烈建議在開始設定“商品特性”前,細心採集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構。

    這些“商品特性”建議於未進行“產品新增”及“匯出、匯入資料”前的初始設定時一併處理,而由於某一特性將來會被套用到產品售出後的訂單資料,所以商品特性一經輸入和套用,不應刪除以避免無法正確查閱訂單資料。

    進入“商品特性設定”管理:
    • 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    • 點擊左選單的“商品特性設定”

    每項“商品特性”包含的資料:
    • 商品選項
      特性的“中英文”名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“顏色”、“尺碼”、“褲長”(必需輸入)

    • 選項值
      • 選項名稱
        已建立的選項所屬特性名稱

      • 選項值
        “中英文”的選項值名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“紅色”、“大碼”、“42吋”(必需輸入)


    針對“商品特性”的動作:
    • 增加
      新增一項“商品選項”或“選項值”,在新增“選項值”前應預先完成新增“商品選項”

    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的“商品選項”或“選項值”,例如更改名稱

    • 刪除
      將該“商品選項”或“選項值”刪除,此刪除動作只針對“商品選項”或“選項值”資料,不會把原有產品刪除

    注意事項:
    • 名稱相近的特性或選項值請盡量歸納,避免設定過於沉長和混亂的架構

    • 設定前務必預先集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構

    • 不可在“商品選項”或“選項值”的名稱內包含或使用符號,以避免跳脫字元影響資料庫存取

  • Cash Point System

    Cash Point System


    Ec2Biz的「網上商店系統」支援“會員現金積分”方案,讓顧客每次購物都能賺取“現金回贈”供下次的購物結帳扣減應付金額。

    我們相信透過這項獨特的方案,能令到在您的“網上商店”購物的顧客更能體驗銷費的樂趣,當顧客持有“現金積分”時,必定希望能夠於購物時使用以獲享優惠,所以“再次銷售”的比例必會比較其他沒有“現金積分”的商店為高,直接讓您運營“電子商務”時達至更佳的業積,輕鬆賺取利潤。

    我們提供的“會員現金積分”系統,能讓您全權決定使用條件、優惠方式,而且設計貼心易用,請您在正式設定前詳閱這份指南,令往後的操作更易掌握。

    “現金積分系統”包含的資料:
    • 現金積分系統
      選擇:“啟用”、“不啟用”

    • 結賬扣減現金積分
      選擇:“可以”、“不可以”,若顧客持有“現金積分”,是否能在結賬時扣減應繳總額

    • 每購物金額可得現金積分的數目
      如設定為“1”則代表客戶每購物“ $1”可獲得“1”積分

    • 每現金積分的價值
      如設定為“0.1”則代表每“10”積分的價值是“$1”

    • 現金積分的批核方式
      選擇:“自動”、“管理員批核”,如顧客每次購物後獲得現金積分,是否由系統自動存進該客戶的個人帳戶裡,或由管理員逐一批核

    • 特價產品是否有現金積分
      選擇:“有”、“沒有”,如顧客購買的是特價產品,該特價品是否具有現金積分

    • 使用現金積分結帳再獲積分
      選擇:“有”、“沒有”,如顧客在結帳時,以現金積分扣減部份應繳金額,是否可以獲得購物總額的全部積分,如設為“有”則可獲全數積分,如設為“沒有”則只獲應付款的現金積分

    • 產品類別使用現金積分的限制
      選擇:“有限制”、“沒有限制”,如顧客持有現金積分,是否限制只適用於指定類別

    • 現金積分適用的產品分類
      選擇產品類別使用現金積分的限制,則需指定那些分類內的產品能扣減積分,沒選取的分類裡的各產品將不能扣減積分,可按實鍵盤的“Ctrl”作多重選擇

    • 群組折扣及特價品使用限制
      選擇:“限制”、“不限制”,如顧客持有現金積分,選購特價品,或有其他折扣(例如群組折扣),是否適用於扣減現金積分

    • 顧客最少持有現金積分才可行使
      您可指定顧客最少持有某數目的積分才能於結賬時使用,例如設定為“1000”則顧客持有少於這值便不能行使積分,設為“0”則沒有限制

    • 每次訂購能扣減現金積分的上限
      此數值能限制顧客於每次訂購時可扣減的現金積分的上限,例如設為“1000”則顧客於該次訂購最多只能扣減1000現金積分,餘下積分則存回顧客帳戶並可於下次訂購時再用

    • 每次訂購使用現金積分的數目限制
      選擇:“預設上限”、“顧客自選”,如顧客持有現金積分,是否讓顧客選擇扣減積分的數目

    • 顧客自選扣減積分的預設值
      如“每次訂購”使用現金積分的數目限制設為“顧客自選”則可預設一建議數值給輸入

    • 行使現金積分的最低購物金額
      顧客的所有訂購產品總金額超過此值才能行使持有的現金積分,設為“0”則沒有限制

    注意事項:
    • 現金積分系統必需設為“啟用”,其他設定方能生效

    • 各項設定汲及的“金錢數值”,是以您商店的“預設貨幣”為基礎

    • 雖然系統對“現金積分”提供多樣化的選擇及使用限制,但是我們強列建議在設定時“切勿太多限制”,這會令顧客在享用優惠時障礙重重,最終打消購物行動

    • 若顧客使用“現金積分”購物,在該訂單的小計欄會顯示相關資料

    • 一般情況下,現金積分的啟用與否,系統在商店是沒有特別的提示顯示,若有啟用,請自行制作精美的“電子報”或“電子郵件”通知您的會員,亦請自行制作精美的橫額廣告讓會員知悉。

    總括來說,“商品欄位”就是可讓您預先設定一些針對產品規格的名稱,讓編輯產品時能按需要而輸入相關資料,令產品頁面的說明與規格明顯地分隔,而且顧客瀏覽時更易更清晰了解產品。

  • E-Voucher Approval

    E-Voucher Approval


    若您的“線上商店”提供可選購的“電子禮券”,基於保障原因,必需經由管理員進行批核,以確保訂購的付款交易無誤,才存進顧客的電子禮券帳戶。

    如接獲顧客購買“電子禮券”的訂單,務必確認有關的付款交易已完成,方可批核顧客的“電子禮券”。

    “電子禮券”與“優惠禮券”的差別:
    • 電子禮券
      跟現金相同,不含任何使用限制,顧客可付款自購,或由管理員簽發

    • 優惠禮券
      可設定若干行使限制,並只能透過管理員簽發

    進入“顧客禮券批核”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“電子禮券/優惠禮券”

    2. 點擊左選單的“顧客禮券批核”

    每項“顧客禮券”包含的資料:
    • 購買客戶
      購買電子禮券的顧客姓名

    • 購買金額
      購買電子禮券的面值(銷售金額)

    • 訂單編號
      相關的訂單編號

    • 購買日期
      相關的訂單的購買日期

    確認“顧客禮券”的程序:
    1. 點擊欲檢視“待批核名單”旁的“確認禮券”

    2. 如訂購的付款方式屬“線上付款”,例如信用咭、PAYPAL(貝寶),請到達相關閘道並檢查交易是否已完成,其他付款方式則亦請檢查有否收妥款項

    3. 如付款証實無誤後,點擊“確認”按鈕,或按“返回”放棄確認

    4. 確認完成後,系統將把相關價值的電子禮券存進顧客的“電子禮券帳戶”內,並同時寄出通知郵件給對方

    5. 此時顧客已可隨時使用禮券的價值訂購產品及結帳,或將“電子禮券”轉寄給親友

    注意事項:
    • 您的線上商店必需有銷售電子禮券,方會產生這篇所述的待批核顧客禮券

    • 若需設定產品屬可供購買的“電子禮券”,只需在型號輸入以大寫英文“GIFT”為首,例如“GIFT100”,而禮券的售價便是面值,請參考“產品管理”

    • 禮券一經確認,將直接存進顧客的“電子禮券帳戶”內,無法以其他途徑改變面值或刪除

    • 顧客付款購買的電子禮券,不需通過“啟用編號”使用

    • 顧客可於同一項訂單內,包含電子禮券及其他產品一同結帳

    • 顧客可重複購買電子禮券,相關的面值將疊加於原本面值

    • “電子禮券”可視為現金,顧客持有的面值適用於所有產品而無任何限制,若顧客持有足夠的禮券面值,結帳時可全數替代應繳金額,甚至適用的手續費

    • 若顧客於結帳後仍有禮券餘值,可於下次購物時繼續使用

    • 顧客可將持有的禮券面值自用,或轉寄全部、部份面值給親友當現金使用(轉寄後的收禮者仍需按照正常程序登記成為會員及結帳)

    • 顧客持有的“電子禮券”只適用於您的“線上商店”

    • 由於沒有途徑修改顧客持有的“電子禮券”資料,所以在您的商店產品內,例如銷售的電子禮券,應註明“不可折回現金”

Glossary

  • Cookie

    Cookie


    The term Cookie derives from "magic cookie", a packet of data a program receives but only uses for sending it again, possibly to its origin, unchanged. Magic cookies were already used in computing when Lou Montulli had the idea of using them in Web communications in Mar 1993.

    Purpose
    HTTP cookies are used by Web servers to differentiate users and to maintain data related to the user during navigation, possibly across multiple visits. HTTP cookies were introduced to provide a way for realizing a "shopping cart" (or "shopping basket"), a virtual device into which the user can "place" items to purchase, so that users can navigate a site where items are shown, adding or removing items from the shopping basket at any time.

    Allowing users to log in to a website is another use of cookies. Users typically log in by inserting their credentials into a login page; cookies allow the server to know that the user is already authenticated, and therefore is allowed to access services or perform operations that are restricted to logged-in users.

    Many websites also use cookies for personalization based on users' preferences. Sites that require authentication often use this feature, although it is also present on sites not requiring authentication. Personalization includes presentation and functionality. For example, the Wikipedia Web site allows authenticated users to choose the webpage skin they like best; the Google search engine allows users (even non-registered ones) to decide how many search results per page they want to see.

    Cookies are also used to track users across a website. Third-party cookies and Web bugs, explained below, also allow for tracking across multiple sites. Tracking within a site is typically done with the aim of producing usage statistics, while tracking across sites is typically used by advertising companies to produce anonymous user profiles, which are then used to target advertising (deciding which advertising image to show) based on the user profile.

    Browser Setting
    Described in " How to Enable Cookie " section.

    Cookie Expiration
    Persistent cookies have been criticized by privacy experts for not being set to expire soon enough, and thereby allowing some websites to track users and build up a profile of them over time. This aspect of cookies also compounds the issue of session hijacking, because a stolen persistent cookie can potentially be used to impersonate a user for a considerable period of time.

    Identification
    If more than one browser is used on a computer, each usually has a separate storage area for cookies. Hence cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a user account, a computer, and a Web browser. Thus, anyone who uses multiple accounts, computers, or browsers has multiple sets of cookies.

    Likewise, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users who share a computer and browser, if they do not use different user accounts.

  • Encryption

    Encryption


    encryption is the process of obscuring information to make it unreadable without special knowledge, sometimes referred to as scrambling. Encryption has been used to protect communications for centuries, but only organizations and individuals with an extraordinary need for secrecy had made use of it. In the mid-1970s, strong encryption emerged from the sole preserve of secretive government agencies into the public domain, and is now used in protecting widely-used systems, such as Internet e-commerce, mobile telephone networks and bank automatic teller machines.

    Encryption can be used to ensure secrecy, but other techniques are still needed to make communications secure, particularly to verify the integrity and authenticity of a message; for example, a message authentication code (MAC) or digital signatures. Another consideration is protection against traffic analysis.

  • Font

    Font


    In typography, a typeface is a coordinated set of glyphs designed with stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numerals, and punctuation marks; it may also include ideograms and symbols, or consist entirely of them, for example, mathematical or map-making symbols. The term typeface is often conflated with font, a term which, historically, had a number of distinct meanings before the advent of desktop publishing; these terms are now effectively synonymous when discussing digital typography. A helpful and still valid distinction between font and typeface is a font's status as a discrete commodity with legal restrictions, while typeface designates a visual appearance or style not immediately reducible to any one foundry's production or proprietary control.

    The art and craft of designing typefaces is called type design. Designers of typefaces are called type designers, and often typographers. In digital typography, type designers are also known as font developers or font designers.

    The size of typefaces and fonts is traditionally measured in points; point has been defined differently at different times, but now the most popular is the Desktop Publishing Point. Font size is also commonly measured in millimeters (mm) and inches.

Linux Web Hosting

  • Database and user naming syntax for PostgreSQL and MySQL

    Database and user naming syntax for PostgreSQL and MySQL


    Since we run a shared hosting environment, we have to uniquely identify your usernames to your account ONLY.

    We do this by attaching your system user name and an underscore("_") before all the databases and users YOU create.


    Example:
    Your added a new database(or user) and your filled in the name: mydatabase
    The Real Database Name: username_mydatabase
    (e.g. C0801001234567_mydatabase)

    * Where C0801001234567 replace your system user name.

    This applies to ONLY your database name and database username, you password stays normal.

    Database Server/Host Address
    • If your script or program is going to be accessing our database locally, meaning it is stored on your account, the server/host address will always be: localhost
    • Just like that, lowercase and one word.

  • Why do I receive a SSL warning when I access control panel?

    Why do I receive a SSL warning when I access control panel?


    SSL provides a level of security and privacy for those wishing to conduct secure transactions over the Internet. Introduced by Netscape, the SSL protocol protects transmissions over the Internet by encrypting information as it passing between the server and the user. This insures that your transactions are not subject to "sniffing" by a third party.

    The Plesk Panel provides two ways of access – Secured and Unencrypted. The first one encrypts the connection between your browser and control panel. The second one (Unencrypted) provides connection on the regular port 8880.

    Since the Plesk Panel is a local one and is being accessed per Customer domain, we have installed a SSL certificate for server domain, which ensures your secured connection to the server when using the first method. The warnings are being prompted due to the fact that your domain name mismatches the one that the SSL is generated for (the server's).

    However, this is not a reason for your connection to be left unencrypted and you may safely click Continue to this website (not recommended) when receiving the warning. Your connection will be surely encrypted.

    • Example for Secured URL
      https://domainname.com:8443 (Recommended)
    • Example for Unencrypted URL
      http://domainname.com:8880

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.

  • 如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足

    如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足


    從世衛在2009年4月24號發出的第一個人類豬流感個案開始,至今已有76個國家和超過3萬感染個案而豬流感病毒變種的問題也成為了全球關注的話題。其實在電腦的世界,惡性攻擊病毒每天在不斷的增加、更新和改變,而企業往往就因為病毒入侵而造成數據丟失和摧毀的受害者。如何防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,是企業I.T.部門經常要面對的挑戰。

    企業單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠

    根據美國FBI 2005的研究指出,約84%的公司會受到惡性病毒的攻擊。另外,美國網絡安全協會(Cyber Secure Institute) 的報告指出,企業為了清除各項病毒的花費高達90億美元!無論您為電腦做再好的隔離措施,例如擁有最新的防病毒軟件和頻密的病毒掃描,病毒也可以找到辦法入侵電腦系統然後摧毀公司重要的檔案,例如客戶清單、合約和訂單等等。公司因為數據丟失和內部電腦系統故障影響而到商譽也絕非金錢能隬補。所以,企業要防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠。

    設立災難性回復方案才能治本

    其實要解決以上問題就要從根本著手,第一步就是要為企業電腦系統設立有效和快速的災難復原方案 (Disaster Recovery Solution),而當中最重要的一環便是為每台電腦作鏡像備份(Image Backup),這樣,當遇到病毒入侵造成數據丟失,企業便可快速地把事先備份好電腦鏡像直接恢復到電腦上,把受到感染或是有故障的電腦復原到正常狀態,確保企業持續運作,儲存於電腦內的業務數據亦能得以保存。

    有資深企業備份經驗的Ahsay 銷售部經理候健生指出:「如何為企業設立有效和快速的災難復原方案是一個很大的課題,大小企業都需要正視。但對中小企來說,由於資源所限,加上公司內未必有專門負責I.T.方面的人員,所以很多中小企都未有實行。其實坊間都有不少能夠提供鏡像備份(Image Backup)的備份軟件,可以滿足基本備份需要。但這些軟件只能夠作本地備份,一旦公司的電腦受到病毒侵襲,用作儲存備份的電腦或伺服器亦可能已經中毒,導致已備份的鏡像無法還原而不能做到災難復原。所以企業應選擇具備異地鏡像備份的備份軟件,才能確保災難復原能發揮功效,因為就算本地公司內所有電腦和伺服器都已經中毒,儲存於異地的鏡像備份數據亦不會受到感染,企業便可快速地把電腦鏡像直接從異地恢復到電腦上,達至災難復原的目的。而Ahsay Backup Software 是市場上少數可以做到異地鏡像備份的企業備份方案。」

    關於Ahsay

    Ahsay Systems Corporation (亞勢系統有限公司) 建基於香港,目前在世界各地已擁有超過2, 900個服務合作夥伴和經銷商,並有超過90萬用戶安裝了Ahsay Backup Software備份軟件。
