This system is experimental. Please contact us with any problems or suggestions.
Yes, rosary makers, you can now use our custom rosary design technology on your web site (and you don't have to be a computer wizard to do so) as described below.
Create a link and add it to your web site
A visitor to your site clicks the link, bringing up the custom design system
The visitor designs the rosary and places the order
The order is e-mailed directly to you, and a thank you note is sent to the purchaser
Contact the purchaser to arrange payment and discuss any details like shipping cost, design options, etc.
If you don't already have the parts to complete the rosary, acquire them from the supplier of your choosing -- quick-order links are provided to assist if you want to order them from The Rosary Shop
Complete the rosary and ship it to the customer
Just fill in the following form and add the resulting simple html code to your web site. This will create a link from your web site to the custom rosary design system. Visitors to your web site can then design and order custom rosaries right from you. The order does not 'go through' The Rosary Shop -- our accounting, administration or shopping systems -- but is immediately sent straight to your e-mail address. Once you receive the order notification, just contact the buyer to arrange payment by whatever method you use, then complete and send the rosary. The system connects to our inventory database for the rosary options, giving your customer about 2000 different parts from which to choose, but there is no requirement for you to purchase the parts from us. You can acquire your parts from anywhere; if you do want to purchase the parts from us, your copy of the order e-mail will include links that allow you to do so in a matter of seconds. If you compile several orders together, you could get a significant discount on your purchase.
The part prices are set according to our normal schedule, but you can raise or decrease them by changing the 'markup' amount to whatever percentage you desire. Our custom rosary design system automatically includes a fee for assembly labor that is proportional to the difficulty and size of the rosary. We will work on adding more configuration options as time allows.
Feel free to replace the "Click here to design your rosary" with text of your choosing. Once you set up your link, it is important that you test it to make sure that you receive the order. Feel free to contact us if you have any difficulties.
Suggestion: You might want to carry a small inventory of the most popular items just to be able to complete orders without having to wait for the parts to arrive from a supplier. Also, if we do not carry a part you'd like to see added to the options, please let us know. If we can add it, we will.
Advanced web designers: If you want the custom rosary system to load up within a template page so that it will look more like your site, create the template page, add the text <!--CUSTOMROSARY--> where you want the system to be inserted, save the file to your web site's root directory as 'rsrosary.txt' (all lower case). Our server will look for that file when the custom rosary system is accessed. If found, it will be used as the appearance template.
