GK Moves Back to WooCommerce

5 years ago when I started Gentei Kits I used Woocommerce. It served me well but lacked some important features (mainly weight-based shipping). Before you Google the well known plugin keep in mind it cost $100 dollars. Now, that might be a fair price but since my day job is programming I felt it was a little steep for something I could do.

Fast-forward 10 months and I moved the entire site over to OpenCart. Like WooCommerce it served me well and I have used it ever since. However, due to the nature of pre-orders I wanted something more customized to how I sell products. So, I have gone back to WooCommerce and for the last 2 months I have customized the backend to help me keep track of the kits that come in. This will most certainly help me avoid the horrible mistake of having to refund your order because I did not order enough.

What has changed?

The overall look has changed a little bit but the basic ordering process is the same. I have imported all accounts but passwords need to be reset. So, using the Forgot Your Password page you will need to reset your password using the same credentials as the old site.

One of my favorite changes is the Gentei Kits’ home page now lists all relevant kits. I do not have a complicated selection; there are pre-orders and in stock kits…thats it. There really should not be any need to go to any other product listing page but it is still there if you insist.

What has happened to existing pre-orders?

The old site will stay live until all pre-orders have been fulfilled. The new url is http://old.genteikits.com. You won’t be able to place any orders but you will still be able to login.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused and if you see a bug please let me know.
