Introduction

e-Commerce, Shopping Cart

SimpleCaddy 2.0.5 for Joomla 3.3 series. Create your shopping cart easily and quickly, without the need of learning complex rules and shop setups. Simple, but powerful. Use Joomla's standard content to present your products and let SimpleCaddy redirect the money to your PayPal account. Simple to set up, simple to use.
All is (joomla) plugin driven, so completely SEF friendly. For developers: SimpleCaddy plugins are easy to create and integrate so you can have the paymenty gateway or shipping solution you dreamed of.

  • Get this

New: Downloadable content support: define your product as downloadable and SimpleCaddy makes sure the product has been paid for before anyone can download it.

Paypal returns still mark your orders as "Paid".

Paypal is delivered as a standard plugin so that other payment methods can be presented on the same page.

Taxes can now be defined per destination and are inmplemented as a joomla plugin, all configurable from inside SimpleCaddy. You can set taxes for specific destinations to be different from others.

Shipping uses a simple points system.

The Joomla standard Extra Fields are used a Custom Fields in SimpleCaddy. So you can use Joomla to gather your necessary info about your clients.

Carts can be shown anywhere in your site, with individual css if you like.

To overcome the difficulties of multiple configurations and options in your plugin calls, an editor-extension button is also included in the package.


I love the simple elegance of SimpleCaddy. It is so light on the server and the site! Thank you for this software.


I've found SimpleCaddy to be surprisingly full-featured for a non-commercial extension. However, I've been less than impressed with the support provided.



The author frequently provides incomplete answers to questions from many users on the forum, or assumes you know which file needs to be edited and where it's located, or simply doesn't answer questions at all, or just says that a question has been answered before and to search for the answer. As an example, I've had a simple question open for about six weeks and it still has not been resolved.



If you can overlook the sketchy support, then SimpleCaddy is a good solution.


Works and verry simple. Just read the docs and use the id for next action. recomended.


I have been using Simple Caddy in all its guises for a few years and have always found the product reliable, simple to set up and easy to operate. When I needed support, the developer bent over backwards to help me.



It may be a free product, but i willingly donate for something that makes my life much easier.


We upgraded simplecaddy and needed help. We reached out to Henk and he was investing time to help us with some special challenges. What a first class service for a free tool. This is a perfect solution if you want to integrate a shop with nice features but do not want to kill your side with functionality your customers do not need. Very flexible concept, easy customizations because of the use of articles, very flexible with the plugin concept.

Well done Henk, great Job!!!

We sent you a donation !

I got lost


Posted on 28 March 2013

Tried it out for two solid days and got it up and running, it is nice and simple and I have sufficient knowledge of CSS to model it to my needs, but...

I had a really hard time to discover how to configure the system. The switch to plugins means that the settings are just all over the place and the help pages are still rather chaotic. I gave up because I could not discover how to setup different taxes for product categories or per product.

Owner's reply: You may have looked "everywhere" but I haven't seen you on the very active forum. It is true that a switch to plugins means a little more work for the user, but the benefits are clearly huge. I would have like to see you on the forum where you can freely ask your questions and in 99% of the cases get your answer.
Settings all over the place, same as for Joomla, Plugins have settings in the plugin config and in the plugin parameters. Component has global config in one place. I'm not sure what you mean with "all over the place". As for the taxes setup, the forum is your friend.

Uncomplicated

As a non coder, this is by far the best cart solution in terms of easy setup and customization. I find others to encumbersom, this worked for me.


For a simple cart solution, with the added bonus of shipping charges configurations, this must be one of the best lightweight scripts around. I was beginning to tear my hair out because of the guidelines set by a client until I came upon this wonderful simple and rational think of beauty. My thanks to the generous developers for giving it out for free.


Highly recommended

Block or allow countries to your site based upon their country code. Ideal against spammers if you know their country code. Use this tiny extension if your hosting company does not allow for blocking countries. This is mostly the case if you are on a shared hosting server.
