Introduction to Nash OS

Multi-Channel Selling

Payments

Buyers & Sellers

Co-Seller System
Co-Seller System can be enabled via admin panel and once enabled, a seller will be able to pick co-seller(s) for his own items. What does a co-seller mean anyway and in what situation it can benefit a regular seller? A co-seller is another user that can be trusted and allowed to assist in selling items for the master seller. A co-seller can bid on his master-sellers items as a buyer and also can halt/release auction time while bidding on item. This is especially important for the Real Estate auctions that happen to be offline and online at the same time. For example: a seller places a house on offline and online auction at the same time. A co-seller sits in front of computer with his master-seller on the phone with him. The master seller tells his co-seller that the house received a bid from offline buyer. The co-seller clicks to open the same house auction on your site and places the bid amount he heard from the master seller on the phone. This way, the master seller can be selling his house in 2 different places at the same time but not avoiding paying you admin fees for the posted/sold items. You ask who will actually pay for the admin fees? The master-seller will pay you the admin fees. The co-seller is only a selling assistant for the master-seller and nothing more. The master-seller decides who will be his co-seller(s) via Members Area Co-Sellers view. NOTA BENE: If your site is not intended to utilize offline auctions, you wont need to enable this feature.
In-The-Spotlight System
In-The-Spotlight System is a feature of Nash OS and available to admin only via admin panel. In-The-Spotlight System lets you cherry-pick certain members, items, or classifieds to get into the spotlight on the home page. NOTA BENE: The spotlighted Members will appear on the home page above featured items box, it will have the store logo or avatar of a user you have marked as spotlight, thus spotlighting pictureless Members is not recommended, as they will not look nice without a good picture next to it. NOTA BENE: The spotlight auctions will appear on the home page above featured items box, it will have the main picture and title of an item you have marked as spotlight, thus spotlighting pictureless items is not recommended, as they will not look nice without a good picture next to it. NOTA BENE: The spotlight classified ads will appear on the stand-alone classifieds page, it will have the main picture and title of a classified ad you have marked as spotlight, thus spotlighting pictureless classified ads is not recommended, as they will not look nice without a good picture next to it. NOTA BENE: The spotlight formula is calculated to show spotlight Members well-balanced rather than in random order. The number of spotlight Members will share the 100% of time evenly. The more spotlighted Members you have the lesser time each one of them get to be displayed.

Picture Manager System
Picture Manager System is a feature of Nash OS for eCommerce and allows your site to host pictures for your sellers so they can use them during SYI or RYI processes. As admin of your site you can find this feature in Navigation menu of admin area. There are 3 major views that allow you to enable or disable this feature, to set up subscriptions for this feature that sellers will pay to use it, and management view that lets you curate sellers that use this feature, such as see when is the next payment expected whether or not to activate or deactivate the feature on per-seller-basis, or entirely stop (a.k.a. delete) subscription for any user. When you enable this feature you do need to create your own subscription plan(s), if you do not create any subscription then the default subscription plan will take place which is totally free with unlimited number of megabytes. The creation of subscription plans is done via a separate view, where you name your subscription plans, set number of megabytes per subscription plan, the cost of subscription plan, recurring cycle for subscription in days. Deleting a subscription plan will automatically inactivate all subscriptions that were used by respective seller(s). Inactivating all subscription plans and fees will automatically activate default subscription (see above). If you want to alter subscription plans you should edit them rather than creating new ones. If you want a subscription plan fee to be a one time fee, enter 0 in the "Recurring Cycle" field. The "Megabytes" field represents the maximum megabytes that can be listed in the subscription plan. On the sellers end this feature can be found inside Members Area. Once a seller navigates to My Picture Manager view, he is met with Settings view and the link to the Manage view. The Settings view holds important information about his subscription plan as well as a toggle to stop subscription at any time or optionally upgrade or downgrade between multiple subscription plans only if there are more than one subscription plan created by admin. The Manage view is where the picture manager shines, sellers can add more picture via that view. Sellers can create folders to place pictures into as well as name and rename them. Once a seller has at least one picture stored in his Picture Manager, he can access it via SYI or RYI process and add any picture from his Picture Manager to the item his about to post. My Picture Manager feature also goes next level by allowing to preview any picture right inside SYI or RYI processes.

Community-360

Feedback Rating System
Feedback Rating System is a long-standing feature that has evolved from a nash mod (prior to Nash OS development) into a full fledge mega monster size system within Nash OS architecture. There are numerous features within Feedback Rating System, such as feedback forums, community360, sort items by sellers ratings, star ratings, feedback importer from other sites, rating levels, ratings in listings, seller and buer ratings, ratings scroller in listings, selling and buying to certain levels of ratings only, commenting on sellers and buyers, reporting false accusations in ratings, following up to ratings for sellers and buyers, recommendations about what needs to be improved by seller and buyer to gain better ratings, the whole entire feedback ratings systems is fully controlled by admin which includes revising, removing, posting and etc. Also sellers can report unpaid items to auto-rate buyers if no solution found to solve an unpaid item issue, clockwise for buyers to report items sold by sellers not as described and auto-refund the items as long as they are shipped back with a proof by shipping service provider and auto-rate sellers when an issue has not been resolved. On top of it all, an admin (also known as the site administration) can be involved to prevent prolonged bickering between buyers and sellers on the same issue of either unpaid item or a received item not as described. This is super system within Nash OS and has multiple views and in admin as well as in members area. NOTA BENE: There are various optional fee-based features of this system that can be used to charge members for the use of them.

Themes for your website

UX & Navigation

Slideshow System
Slideshow System is a set of features of Nash OS and once enabled from admin panel, it will take over the Homepage Announcements area (Prime Space). Choosing a skin that does not accommodate the slideshow by its design will not display the slideshow. At least 2 slides make up the show that is why it is called a slideshow, so keep at least 2 slides unhidden for each skin while you have the slideshow enabled. Designing a slide too wide will effectively stretch your site skin too wide. To fix that either make the slides width fit the width of your site skins (you can use photoshop or any image editor that lets you resize your slides without distorting them) or use css rule such as overflow:hidden to hide any extra pixels of the slides width, so the site skins wont become corrupted by the slides width. If you would like to design your own HTML instead of images for slides, then you can switch each slide into HTML mode by clicking on Yes option in the HTML column below, otherwise leave it at No. Since this feature is optional, you can only use it on an already added and available slide, in other words please upload a slide first and only then switch over to HTML mode if thats your original intention. Remember to learn about HTML and how to write it before using this feature and be very careful with CSS, as you maybe charged by Nash to fixing any html/css code produced by you. Remember that any lines of code you left unclosed and incomplete, can break your site or even worse can make it gone. You just have to double-check your code before clicking on Commit & Submit buttons. Recently, Slideshow System has received few extra cool features, such as ability for admin to change location for each slide - in other words, not only homepage can receive a slideshow but also community360, stores, and categories pages. And of course you can run a different slideshow with a different skin which is real useful when the skin changer is enabled  on your site.
