Thinking of starting an eCommerce store / shopping cart?

August 8th, 2010 No comments

Thinking of starting an eCommerce Store or a shopping cart. Here are the things you need to consider before setting one up.

1. Stock Inventory

How are you going to manage your inventory. If you put up a product online, you will need to make sure that you have the product in stock. Also if you sell the product from its physical location, you need to make sure that you update the product inventory on your website.

2. Postage, Handling and Delivery

How are you going to deliver your product.

  • Are you going to check every order, put them in envelopes and send it through the post
  • Are you going to hire a courier who can run around and get your products delivered quickly
  • Does your product meet the requirements to go through post/courier
  • Is it a fragile item?
  • How much are you going to charge for Postage and Handling?
  • Are you going to offer international postage?
  • Do the dimensions of the product make it an issue for Postage?

3. Photographs of products

  • How are you going to get photographs of the products.
  • Do the photographs of the products adequately display the product
  • Do the photographs answer all the questions your potential customer has from the look of the product
  • Are the photographs so well done that the actual product looks inferior compared to the photograph?

4. Sale and Promotions

  • Are you going to run sales and promotions
  • Does your eCommerce platform allow you to mark products down
  • How will you communicate sales and promotions to your customers

5. Marketing your Online Store

  • How will you market your store?
  • How will you initially get customers to the online store?
  • Have you got a list of email addresses of customers that you can communicate to?
  • Have you got an social media strategy?
  • How will your existing customers know that they can buy products online?

More to come on this later….

Using DzineClub CMS to resize and optimise Images

April 18th, 2010 2 comments


Previously using dzineCMS you had to resize your images on a different software before dropping into the site. For some clients who didn’t have a lot of technical knowledge around image editing, it was a bit of a pain 🙂

Now with time, we have decided to make it easier for those clients and enable optimization and resizing feature in the image gallery.  You can now use the CMS itself to resize your photos that you have imported from your camera and make them web-ready.

If you are using DzineCMS to make changes to the SEO and Content of your sites, here are some instructions on how to resize images using DzineCMS itself.

  1. Log into the dzineCMS system
  2. Upload an image to the image library or select an existing image
  3. Hover your mouse over the image and click on optimise

    This will load up an optimization screen. you can use this screen to make the following changes to your images:

    Basic operations

    – crop the file
    – resize the file
    – Rotate and flip the file


    – Remove red eyes
    – whiten teeth
    – Automatically adjust levels
    – Adjust brightness and contrast
    – Adjust hue and saturation
    – sharpen the photo
    – blur the photo
    – denoise the photo
    – make the photo black and white
    – invert the photo
    – cross process photos

    You can also use a variety of photo effects.

If you have any issues with resizing images or would like one of our staff to take you through how it is done, please drop us a line at
