The easiest way of integrating the Upgradebox® is an iframe or a popup window. The web user can search for the articles and returns to the web system with a link to the parent frame, a named frame or the opening window.
The customization of the Upgradebox® happens in two stages.
During the basic setup we generate the settings for your customer account. This is done for you without any charges. The basic setup includes:
When calling the iframe from your own web application, the Upgradebox® is customizable regarding the
<iframe src="http[s]://www.upgradebox.eu/?customer=[CUSTOMER NAME]" scrolling="auto" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0" width="[WIDTH PX]" height="[HEIGHT PX]" name="external">Your browser does not support frames.</iframe>
The parameters in brackets should be replaced. The Upgradebox is usable without or with SSL encryption. The CUSTOMER NAME is provided by the Upgradebox support and needs to be set, otherwise the Upgradebox will not be customized. The width and the height in pixels depends on your web site setup.
The second way of embedding the Upgradebox into your web site uses a popup window. A simple example would look like this:
Again the parameter CUSTOMER NAME has to be replaced by your own name.
The main customized settings for the Upgradebox® are maintained by the support.
Additionally you are able to start a single Upgradebox® session with some parameters for further customization:
The Upgradebox® provides the option to display the customer's own article numbers instead of the original manufacturer article numbers. This custom number will then also be used for the backlink to the customer's website.
The article number listing can be imported into the Upgradebox® manually or automatically.
For the manual import the customer may send us an original --> custom article number mapping list by eMail in e.g. Microsoft Excel format, as CSV or TAB-divided file.
For the automatic import a FTP or HTTP URL has to be given. The Upgradebox® will then arrange the update on a regular basis with its own scheduler mechanism.
The file should contain a simple list:
