1. Find and Install
Find REES46 Module in OpenCart Marketplace or simply click this link.
On the page you can see a full review of REES46 OpenCart 2 Module functionality. Feeling like geeking out? Here is the link to our Documentation and a Detailed Description of Our Services.
Click Download and download the zip-archive. No need to unpack the files, though.
Mind that REES46 has two installation packages and choose the one matching your OpenCart version.
In your store, go to your OpenCart Administration Panel and navigate to Extension Installer:
Click Upload, choose the archive you just downloaded and wait for the Continue button to appear.
Complete the installation as you always do with any other OpenCart extensions. And we’re ready to configure the settings.
First tab you see in Settings is the General tab. There, you’ll probably see a notification asking you to register on REES46.com before any following adjusments. Here is the registration link.
Right after the registration, you note down the Store Key и Secret Key that you can later find in the Store Settings (rees46.com > My Stores > Dashboard > Settings > Store Settings).
Then you put these two keys into respective fields in Module Settings and set Module Status to enabled. And do enable Logging.
3. Product Feed
Now what you need is your store catalog in the form of an XML Product Feed for REES46 to index it and start working.
Go to Products tab and set the Currency. REES46 automatically generates an XMl-file with your product feed and dynamically links it to your personal profile on rees46.com. If you know how to operate Cron and prefer to generate product feed yourself, you can paste the link to the cron task into Cron Task Link field. Otherwise, REES46 does all the work for you.
On the tab Orders select the checkboxes to establish relations between statuses of the orders in your store and statuses of the orders in REES46 and click Start Export.
5. Customer List
Simply export your customer list on the Customers tab and remember to select the audience type in Audience Type.
6. Web Push Notifications
To turn on Web Push Notifications, click Download Files and wait till the Module does all the work for you. And remember that to enable web push notifications, your site must first support HTTPS!
7. Product Recommendations
To arrange Recommendation Blocks on your site, first choose the block type (“Popular Products”, “You May Also Like”, “Recommended For You”, etc.). If you don’t yet know what kind of blocks you need the most, it’s time you geeked out a bit and took a look at Detailed Description of Our Services.
What to set on Recommendations tab:
- Block Title - this is going to be the name of the block your visitors will see.
Limit - number of products shown in the given recommendation block.
Image Width and Image Height - make sure dimensions fit your main store style.
Recommendation Block Template - keep the original template or create your own.
Use Built-in CSS Styles - decide if you want to use built-in CSS styles made by us or want to create custom CSS styles manually.
