If the third-party extension is having issues, we will identify that third-party extension and report to you. We know that this web software will work on 90-95% of the servers right off the bat, but there is always going to be that 5 or 10 percentage, where it will need a little push, and we will help you on it. Our timezone is IST (Indian Standard Time), and our working hours are between 10:00 AM IST to 6:00 PM IST, Monday to Friday.

This top quality mechanism lets you to utilize all features of Magento and allows you to use hundreds of extensions from Magento Connect. There is no restriction for enhancements or development as you will have all the necessary files to do customization as per your wish.There is literally no other software or site that offers the list of features that we offer. The installation is super easy and it can be done even by non-technical people by following the manual that we provide.

    1) What do I need to start using this product?

    Step 1: Buy any one of “Contus GroupClone� packages listed on http://grouponclone.contus.com/groupon-clone-packages.php

    Step 2: Register a domain name for your website. You can register a domain name at godaddy.com, networksolutions.com, enom.com or any certified registrar of domain names. We mentioned these three because they are reputed and highly reliable. Your best bet and most economical are godaddy.com and enom.com because they are relatively inexpensive, but it’s your choice whether to go for it or not. Just be sure that what you select is a well known service and that they are reputable. There are too many stories about people losing a domain name because of some ridiculous glitches. Note: Don’t be discouraged if your domain name is already taken and keep on trying different variations for a “.com� extension. Try not to settle on .net, .org, .info, or any other extensions. Try to get a .com.

    Step 3: Find a good web host. Once you register your domain name, you need to find what is called a web host. This is the place where your physical website files are located on the Internet. You have to make sure that the web host server meets Magento requirements and is Ioncube installed. You can contact us directly and we will assist you. Send us an email to bd@contus.in.

    4) What kind of performance enhancing mechanisms for Contus Group Clone?

    Magento is a fantastic system with a huge range of features, however with that comes a “slight” performance issue, whereas using VPS or dedicated servers help us to have a better performance. Apart from selecting, these servers, we can consider few optimization points even for a shared hosting.

    * Install a PHP opcode cache such as Memcache.
    * Set memory limit to 64M in PHP Configuration.
    * Increase the value for “realpath_cache_ttl� to 3600 to 7200 in PHP configuration to increase the time of cache
    * Make sure your Apache configuration has KeepAlives enabled. Turn Off Keep-Alive if you have to use mod_php
    * Modify the configuration for your MySQL server to take better advantage of your server's RAM. 
    * Be sure the Magento caches are enabled.
    * Enable Expires Headers.
    * Enable MySQL query caching
    * Enable Block Caching where it makes sense.
    * Make fewer HTTP Requests in your Theme
    * Use FastCGI to run PHP.
    * Use a Content Delivery Network
    * Remove unused extensions.
    * Enable Gzip Compression.
    * Reduce DNS lookups
    * Avoid redirects.
    * Make Ajax Cacheable.
    * And so forth.
    5) Can Contus Group Clone work on Amazon EC2?

    The Contus Group Clone can work on Amazon EC2. We have developers who are experienced in Amazon EC2 server. However, the installation process may take some time depends upon the difficulties we face in Amazon sever and amazon server experienced developers availability. We expect the customer's co-operation when the customer has different kind of sever.

    1) What are the supported payment gateways?

    This readymade script supports all Magento supported payment gateways. If any payment gateway is not supported, then be sure that the Magento version you use supports the particular payment gateway. Before selecting the payment gateway, be aware of the gateway’s commission fee, supported countries, supported currencies, Pay later feature, Magento payment gateway stability, etc.

    2) Is it possible to setup SSL?

    Yes. If HTTPS is used to work in the admin, SSL certificate should be valid. Self-signed SSL certificates are not supported. We recommend SSL, because with booming Internet trends and fraud, most of the users will not submit their private details on the web unless they know that the information they provide is securely transmitted and not accessible for anyone to view.

    3) Will my clients credit card or any other credential stored in the database?

    The credit card details are not saved in admin panel or in the database when you process with any secured payment gateways, but we should make sure and be aware of the payment module we use and the payment module creator. There is a default payment option called “Saved CC� in Magento. We never recommend this method unless you don’t like to process payments offline. Orders placed using this method will appear in the admin with the card number, name on card and expiry date. You can then take this information and use it to charge your customers using your preferred method.

    1) How does your licensing works?

    We will generate license key based on the customer email id and domain name. Every domain will have unique license keys. Once the software is installed in any domain it will require the license key to be configured. Without a license key or with a wrong license key inserted, our software will not display any deals in the front end. As well the license key will not work for any sub domains. A request should be placed by customers if a licence key is needed for any sub-domains.

    2) Does your system support multi-city deals?

    Yes. Our system supports multi-city deals. When you need to run the same deal on various cities, you need not add the same deal for each city. Just enter a single deal and select cites from the multi-select box.

    3) Does it support all the Magento extension?

    Yes, this software supports most of the Magento extensions. If any Magento version does not work, then there are various factors to analyze such as extensions capability for your Magento version (Compatibility), extension bugs, installation errors, folder permissions, server issues and so on. When an extension conflicts with the deal concept, then changes or customizations with the extension may be required and this is not a part of our support.

    4) How the deal notification system works?

    Default Subscription Feature: Contus Group Clone contains newsletter subscription feature by default. It works based on the cron job function. Your site visitors can subscribe for the city they wish. When the cron job function runs, it checks for any new deals. If any new deal is added by the site's admin or merchant, an automatic email will be sent to the subscribers of the particular city.

    Third party integrations: The third party email marketing system such as “Mailchimp� can be integrated with our GroupClone. For Mailchimp, we just need to provide Mailchimp API credentials. If you have integrated Mailchimp with your deal website, the subscribed emails will be synchronized to corresponding Mailchimp account and you will be able to send manual emails to the subscribers using Mailchimp account.

    5) What if I need a design Changes on the home page?

    We recommend you to choose “Custom GPC� package if you would like to have your deal website with unique home page design to attract visitors and to be different from your competitors.
