  • Attribute Management

    Attribute Management


    “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”。

    在您的‘網上商店’銷售的產品,都可以個別地套用合適的“商品特性”以解決同款產品但具備多樣化的訂購選擇,而且每種特性選擇可設定獨特的“差價”。

    例如某一衣服產品的正常售價是每件一百圓,若顧客選擇“大碼”則需多付十圓,意味這件“大碼衣服”的每件售價將會是一百一十圓。

    要在產品中增加“商品特性”,必需預先完成上一節指南介紹的“商品特性設定”。

    進入“商品特性管理”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“商品特性管理”

    3. 或 在“產品管理”中點擊針對產品的“特性選擇”動作

    新增“商品特性”產品:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 點擊左選單的“商品特性管理”

    3. 點擊主螢幕的“增加”按鈕

    4. 選擇產品的目錄

    5. 選擇相關產品

    6. 點擊主螢幕的下方的“編輯”按鈕

    7. 剔取合適的“商品特性”和選擇其他合適的項目

    8. 完成後按“儲存”或“更新”,或按“返回”放棄並返回列表

    每項“商品特性”包含的資料:
    • “商品特性”名稱
      透過剔取“選擇方格”來決定是否套用

    • 增/減選擇
      如該項特性具有“差價”,則可透過選擇“+”(增加差價)或“–”(減少差價),如沒有設定“差價”則不需選擇

    • 選項的差價
      如該項特性具有“差價”,請輸入差價的數值,例如“10”,如沒有差價請留空

    • 排序
      針對特性在下拉選單的先後排序,如沒有刻意設定,系統將以“商品特性”名稱的筆劃來自動排列

    針對“商品特性”的動作:
    • 新增產品
      從已建立的產品裏挑選一項並套用商品特性

    • 編輯
      修改已經套用商品特性的產品資料

    • 刪除
      將該產品的商品特性刪除,此刪除動作只針對商品特性資料,不會把原有產品刪除

    注意事項:
    • 如有為產品的商品特性“設定差價”,則差價的貨幣是以您商店的“預設貨幣”為基礎

    • 若產品套用了商品特性,顧客應在放進“購物車”前選擇,而完成訂購後的訂單,雙方的訂購產品資料都會特別地註明所選的商品特性

    • 若產品套用了商品特性,在顧客選擇了並完成訂購程序後,有關產品的商品特性無法再修改

    • 產品的特性差價,會根據訂購數量反影在訂單總計裏,並連同其他應收款項一併計算

  • 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

    • 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”

    Are you able to send emails but not receive?


    Either your E-Mail address setting is wrong, or your domain is out of disk space. You will need to increase the amount of disk space to receive mail again.

    Does it say "please enter your username and password for the following server" and you are sure you're using the correct information?

    Most of our servers have a 60 checks per hour limit. If you hit this limit in any hour you'll be locked out for the rest of the hour. you will need to click: Tools > Options > General > and disable where it says "check for new messages every xx minutes".

    If you do not want to disable it just set it to check less often. keep in mind the more computers you have auto checking or checking the mail the quicker you will hit this limit.

Glossary

  • B2B (business-to-bussiness)

    B2B (business-to-bussiness)


    Business-to-business electronic commerce (B2B) typically takes the form of automated processes between trading partners and is performed in much higher volumes than business-to-consumer (B2C) applications.

    For example, a company that makes chicken feed would sell it to a chicken farm, another company, rather than directly to consumers. An example of a B2C transaction would be a consumer buying grain-fed chickens at a grocery store.

    B2B can also encompass marketing activities between businesses, and not just the final transactions that result from marketing. B2B also is used to identify sales transactions between business. For example a company selling photocopiers would likely be a B2B sales organisation as opposed to a B2C (business to consumer) sales organisation.

  • Greylisting

    Greylisting


    Greylisting
    Greylisting reduces the amount of unsolicited e-mail (SPAM) delivered to e-mail addresses by capitalizing on spammers’ reluctance to configure their mail servers properly.

    Since most spammers do not retry sending email, the greylisting initially refuses all mail from unknown sources and accepts them on a later retry. This technology can cut spam as much as 95% of spam.

  • SPAM

    SPAM


    Spamming is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, which are universally undesired. While the most widely recognized form of spam is email spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, mobile phone messaging spam, internet forum spam and junk fax transmissions.

    Spamming is economically viable because advertisers have no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists, and it is difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings. Because the barrier to entry is so low, spammers are numerous, and the volume of unsolicited mail has become very high. The costs, such as lost productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and by Internet service providers, which have been forced to add extra capacity to cope with the deluge. Spamming is widely reviled, and has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.

    The Internet is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web.

  • GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)

    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)


    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit-per-pixel bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.

    The format uses a palette of up to 256 distinct colors from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of 256 colors for each frame. The color limitation makes the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for more simple images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

    GIF images are compressed using the LZW lossless data compression technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality. This compression technique was patented in 1985. The controversy over the patent licensing agreement between the patent proprietor, Unisys, and CompuServe in 1994 led to the development of the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) standard.

  • Transferring your website to Focus Network Company

    Transferring your website to Focus Network Company


    Already hosted with another provider? Want to move your website to Focus Network Company?

    This tutorial will outline the steps required to migrate your website and email accounts to your new account in Focus Network Company.

    • Step 1 - Backup your files
      First of all, you need to download the site from your old host. You can do this in one of two ways:
      • Backup your site through Plesk
        If your old host uses Plesk, and the Backup feature is enabled, you can download your entire site in a couple of clicks.
      • Backup your site via FTP
        If your host does not use Plesk or they do not have the backup function enabled, then you should backup your site using FTP. Typically you need to connect to your website via FTP, download your www or public_html folder (the names for this folder differ; it is the folder that contains your website).

        The tutorials below will show you how to connect and transfer files using the popular free FTP client software.
        1. Download and install FTP client software, such as Filezilla, CuteFTP, WS_FTP
        2. Connecting to your website with FTP client software
        3. Transferring files to/from your website with FTP client software

    • Step 2 - Backup and restore your MySQL databases
      If you do not have any MySQL databases, you can skip to Step 3.

      To transfer MySQL databases from your old host to Focus Network Company, there are two methods you can use:
      • Backup/Restore MySQL databases via Plesk
        This uses the same Plesk function as the file backup section does. you can backup your database in a couple of clicks.
      • Backup/Restore MySQL databases via phpMyAdmin
        If your host does not use Plesk/the backup function is disabled, you can backup and restore MySQL databases using phpMyAdmin. Follow the tutorials below for instructions on how to import and export MySQL databases in phpMyAdmin.
        How do I export or backup a MySQL Database
        How do I import a MySQL Database / Creating or Importing a Database

    • Step 3 - Upload your files to your account
      Now you need to upload your files to your Focus Network Company account. If you backed up your files using the Plesk backup feature, you can upload them easily through your Plesk by following the tutorial above ("Restoring Data From Backup Archives").

      If you backed up your files using FTP, simply connect to your account using FTP client software and upload your files into the httpdocs folder.

    • Step 4 - Create email address on your account
      Before you point your domain to your Focus Network Company account, its a good idea to create the email addresses through Plesk first. Simply create the email addresses you want on your account by following the tutorial below:
      How to setup Your Emails on PLESK Control Panel / Creating Mailboxes

    • Step 5 - Point your domain to your account
      By this point your account with Focus Network Company should mirror your account at your current host; you should have uploaded your site files and MySQL databases and created your email accounts. Once you are sure you have completed all the steps above, its time to change the nameservers of your domain.

      Login to your domain control panel at your registrar and modify the nameservers for your domain to the ones we sent you in the welcome email.

      • Below are our DNS information:

        ns1.powersx.com
        ns2.powersx.com
      How to point my existing domain name to "Focus Network Company" server?

      Once you have done this, wait for your domain to propagate. This can take between 6-72 hours, depending on your location. To see if your domain has resolved correctly to your Focus Network Company account, type your domain name into the tool below and hit Lookup. On the next page scroll down to the Whois Record section. If the Focus Network Company nameservers are listed here, then your domain name has resolved.

      http://www.whois.sc

      Check your domain name is displaying correctly, and then proceed to the next step.

    • Step 6 - Cancel your account at your old host
      Once you have updated your nameservers and your domain name has resolved correctly, you can cancel your account at your old host.

      Make sure you backed up all your files; getting data back after you have cancelled your service with a provider can be quite difficult.

    • Congratulations, you have succesfully moved your website to Focus Network Company!

  • Twitter

    Twitter


    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

    Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet", as it provides the functionality—via its application programming interface (API)—for other desktop and web-based applications to send and receive short text messages, often obscuring the Twitter service itself.

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.

  • 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.

    微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取


    根據BBC(英國廣播公司)報導,微軟公司的Windows Live Hotmail遭到網絡黑客入侵,超過萬個hotmail客戶資料遭到竊取,這些資料多數來自歐洲,微軟並證實遭竊取的密碼都是正確的。

    科技網誌neowin.net說,黑客除了盜取帳號密碼之外,又把盜取到的資料全數公布到網路上,超過上萬個hotmail帳戶的細節,2009年10月1日被貼上一個讓人分享密碼的網站pastebin.com。

    Neowin聲稱這些帳戶可能是被黑或是利用網路釣魚搜集而來。網路釣魚攻擊者利用發送釣魚郵件給受害者,受害者點選後,會被導向釣魚網頁,就會洩漏了個人的機密資訊給予攻擊者,如個人的信用卡號碼、密碼、帳號等。

    微軟目前表示,他們已經知悉此事,並正在積極了解及處理中。這件事透露出網路資訊安全的疑慮,若果個人資料遭到竊取,可能會有更多後續麻煩的事端。
