Hi daimyar,
could you please check if the same error occurs in my demo site? Just to begin an investigation and try to understand if it is a problem of incorrect installation or a real bug.

Let me know,

I just checked your demo site and realized mine doesn't have (show) "Your Sales Representative:" section.
I am not sure if it is incorrect installation or a real bug. Would you please check my site and let me know and give me a solution.

NOTE: Just for your information; after installing this module also I installed shoppica theme which is not active now.

OK, some questions now:
1) what Opencart version are you exactly using?
2) Are you using default template at the moment, aren't you?
3) Could you please send me vqmod.log file you should find in vqmod folder?

Btw, when you will switch to Shoppica, you will unfortunately need some slight adaptations more, but lets discuss about them in a further step.

Thank you for your kind and quick respond.
The version of the Opencart I am using is Version 1.5.1.3
Yes I am using default template right now.
I tried to attache the "vqmod.log" file to this post but it didn't accept it because the file is about 7.69 MB so I uploaded to one of mt FTP, you can download it from here: http://www.print416.com/client/vqmod.log
Thanks again

I'm checking your log and I will verify things.
Btw, just for your knowledge, the log shows a lot of events/errors related also to other extensions, e.g.:

Maybe you should verify this UKSB Google Merchant extension.

Regarding my contribution, I'm only encountering some message errors (not relevant in your case) related to Italian language missing. Or better... let me think about, what exact version of vqmod are you using? Preliminary 2.0.x versions had some issues with relation to missing files... even if not relevant.

Anyway, troubleshoot on your vqmod.log is really difficult... if you could contact me via email/skype we could try to go on smoothly. I just sent you an email on this.

Fantastic extension.

Is there a way to assign a customer to a specific agent by post code. This is how many companies work in the UK. For example. all post codes: DE, LU, S, LS, etc -> agent 1 and WS, M, LA, etc. -> agent 2 and so on.

Thank you robster.
At the moment that feature is not present. Maybe in the future!

Hi there,
this module is exactly what I was looking for to handle my B2B site, but I would like to test it before I pay anything.
Unluckily your two demo sites do not work at all, please check on them and give me a sign if they are up and running again.

I would like to know if the module integrates smoothly with the cartmania theme? I am running OC 1.5.1.3 and Cartmania latest version. I will have a checkout mod called Simplyfied Checkout that changes the layout to just a single page. WIll the Sales Rep Box be included there automatically?
>> check the mod here: https://demo.webbutvecklarna.com/index. ... ckout/cart
or see the original extension here: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... order=DESC

Also I would like to ask about the same feature that other guy wanted... In Germany a sales rep is usually assigned to either Zip Codes or States/Regions or in some cases even countries. So if I could assign a rep by states automatically each time a new customer signs up and the right rep gets a notice along with the admin that would be great!

Best regards,
Thorsten

Hi Thorsten,
thank you for your interest in my work.
I don't know why the demo site were down, maybe considering I leave almost free access to potential customers to check everything, something has been broken.

Anyway I just set up a brand new demo site in OC 1.5.1.3 with Sales Rep v1.4.

You can check with same credentials on :

http://www.opencartzoom.com/demo/oc1513sr

You can verify everything there and if you have any doubt you can contact me.

Regarding Cartmania and single page checkout, I can't say the agent box is working with them and, to be honest, I suppose it will not work at the first try. Anyway, considering the impact of the box on the page is really limited, I'm really confident I could adapt it for you easily. No problem for that. You will just need to provide me your customizations (theme and 3-pty extension) in order to be able to do the adaptation.

Regarding the last point, I'm discovering it is a good new feature. I will surely add it in the next version. Maybe you will find a gift under your Christmas tree.

regards,

M

Hello Madimar,
sounds good, but I am sorry to say that I just tried to log in and the demo credentials for Admin or salerep1 are not working :(

@Thorsten

You need to go to http://www.opencartzoom.com/oc1513sr/admin (add the /admin bit to the url) and everything works fine (although there is a small error at the top of the screen when I logged in as salerep1).

O.K... now I know why I could not log in! Login as salerep1 is everything denied... I think it is not a good way to integrate it like that, as the full backend is still shown but locked down. This is very confusing! I think there should be only a dashboard displaying with direct access to all the available features, like customer orders, customer addressbook and such. I have seen a mod somewhere that can hide all the other navigation. I will definitly make use of that!

Also there must be the phone number of the agent available in the admin section. Not only the email.

Overall, I could not see or test much as it was too confusing and the salerep1 was blocked.

Some more ideas:
- A salerep should be able to approve new customers on the road by itself! When no admin is available he cannot create new orders!
- Did you think about integrating a sales rep as an affiliate? So when one of his customers buys something he is rewarded the percentage of the netto sum automatically?

Best regards, Thorsten

Glad you got in. Yes everything is locked out as salerep1..... :( If you try the original link on the extensions page (if it is still there) it worked ok.

I agree with you about the commissions, super idea and the telephone too. the main thing is the automatic assigning of customers to the agent - This would make this extension perfect.
