Adding Terms and Conditions

Applies to: IOS


It is possible for the user to add Terms and Conditions to their IOS site.

Two methods are available:

  • A Terms and Conditions menu item
  • A Terms and Conditions checkbox at order checkout

You may use both, either or none of the above two options. The first method places a clickable menu item on each of the pages whereas the second option requires the customer to agree to the Terms and Conditions via a checkbox when confirming their order

Requirements

You will need the following:

  1. A HTML document (or documents) with your Terms and Conditions that you will upload to your site
  2. Your sFTP login credentials - address, login and password. These are available from Timestone Software
  3. An sFTP client such as WinSCP, Filezilla or Altap Salamander

The HTML document

You will need to create an HTML document with your Terms and Conditions. If using both the menu item and the order checkout method you may use the same document for both or you may use two different documents. If using two documents make sure they are named differently. Suggested names are:

  • tac.html - for the menu item Terms and Conditions
  • ordertac.html - for the order checkout Terms and Conditions

Uploading the document(s)

Using your sFTP client and the credentials given to you, upload the html documents to your Site folder.

Although you will see several files and folders, your sFTP login only gives you access to the Site folder

Updating the settings.ini file

With the html documents uploaded it is then necessarly to let the system know their wherabouts and their name. This is done by adding an entry to the settings.ini file

The settings.ini file is simply a text file that may be edited with any text editor. Some sFTP clients will allow you to edit text files directly while others will require you to download the file to your local computer for editing before re-uploading back to the site folder.

Assuming the menu item Terms and Conditions document is called tac.html add the following line anywhere in the settings.ini file located inside the site folder.

TermsAndConditions=site/tac.html

Assuming the order checkout Terms and Conditions document is called ordertac.html add the following line anywhere in the settings.ini file

OrderTermsAndConditions=site/ordertac.html
