The extension uses PayPal and Google Checkout as its payment systems, and comes with an inbuilt theme.
- Payment Systems: use PayPal or Google Checkout
- Currencies: use up to 16 different currencies for your store
- Tax Rate: automatic cost calculation based on a tax rate
- Shipping: configure shipping costs for auto-calculation
- RokBox: product images use RokBox to display larger previews
- Style: inbuilt styling for rapid deployment
However, due to compatibility issues with Google Chrome, it does not show cart images of what you have added to your cart, only text filepaths. This looks bad, and leaves the customer wondering whether they are purchasing the actual item they wanted.
Rocket Theme have not offered a fix for this as yet, even on their paid subscription support forum, of which I am a member. They are oddly reluctant to comment on this glaring issue.
So unfortunately, as growing numbers of internet users migrate to Google Chrome, it leaves this potentially good extension, somewhat redundant.
I'm not a coder and can't do it by myself.
Maybe someone want to get an eye on that code?
- easy to install
- easy to configure (settings are made in few minutes!)
- customizable: shipping, vouchers, payment, photo
- very good for a little shop, when there are few items
I didn't know RokquickCart and is was a happy surprise
I only needed a simple button for my site, to land my customers to a check out shopping cart. Dah. You think it would be easy to find, right?
My only dilemma with Rokquickcart is that I need to learn how to adjust some of the inner dynamics....code.....to allow for multiple categories, because I only have one item per joomla article. I dont want all of my items on one page.
The fellow reviewer, Kokujin (as of last december), figured out a way to do this. Any suggestions would be helpful.
We desperately need categories, I wish kokujin would have described a little more how "mod it a bit to have multiple Categories" looks.
Since it is not a "mod", it is a component and plugin, what was done to make categories work (I would think edit component and mysql).
Thumbnail transparency issues is a pain;
Sure you can have white backgrounds, but it's ugly...
The other problem is a security one which I read about in the forum while trying to solve the above issue.
Other than that it is a nice simple cart which may suit some people.
Thank you rockettheme for producing this.
RokQuickCart is a very simple and beautiful extension to use. If you sell less than 10 items at your website, it's a must.
I hope the developer continues working on this extension and add features such as promotional code, discounts when you buy more than two items, and a module so you can put the "Add to Cart" button on any of your content.
I would definitely pay money for this cart.
The direct integration into both Paypal and Google checkout systems was EXACTLY what I was looking for - I didn't need any other processing companies, which just makes things more complicated than they need to be.
Just a warning - do not expect this to be a full blown shopping cart - they don't claim it is. It's simply a one page cart that you can put on your site to sell a FEW things (ie more than 20 items and your page will start to look a little cluttered).
Unfortunately for me, I am looking for something that looks and works exactly like this component, but can manage a slightly bigger inventory (multiple categories, based on the Joomla section/category layout is fine), and possibly include shipping and tax options - basically suited for a small home business.
Hopefully an alternate version to this will include these additional features, as it's definitely an untapped part of the otherwise fantastic Joomla Extensions Directory.
