Im working on a reseller system / drop shipping system
I got a t-shirt factory in Bali and many of my clients get their own labels and sells tshirts im making and then i send the shirts to their clients using their logo and labels.

So im working on a site that the resellers can buy from me and make their own, and then the orders will come to me.
It got a fully custom made CMS i made myself so they can add or change things, like pictures/text/urls/style of the website..

I only got to step 2 out of 4 or 5 steps to order shirts.. But im looking for some input!.. whats good and bad and the ugly?


And the prices dont work properly right now. It will be using jquery so full calculations without reloading the site.

Congratulations! It is a lot of work designing, coding and implementing a complex website. I understand your intent is targeting the Indonesian consumer. Everything you have implemented may be perfect for that audience.
However, for other audiences, such as the USA consumer, there is a real disconnect. Many of the descriptions (fabric type) make sense to printers but not buyers.
To the USA consumer frabric type means cotton, preshurnk cotton, Dri-fit, polyester, burlap, canvas, blah, blah and more blah.

May I encourage you to have the site reviewed by someone who has no knowledge of printing so they can suggest how to 'consumerize' the text.

Let's go way off topic....
Would you consider modifying this code, so the small scale printer like many here on this forum, to send the order to their shop and let the shop owner choose to keep what they can print and decide where to redirect to their wholesale printer?

This protects the creators intellecutal property, keeps the outcome of their marketing effforts within their control, thereby making them much more profitable.

Currently the DOPs benefit and actually steal the outcome of the marketing of the shops who use them and do not protect their intellectual property.

For sure i got many plans for my reselling system that is not really intended just for Indonesia, as most of my clients are from Australia. But as im based here right here, i need to follow the Indonesian laws for the site. But again is a reselling system. Each person that that will have this system have full access to change everything on the site to fit their own laws.



The underlining system is based so people can have up to 10 different fabrics or materials available on their site.



And to have the possibility to have any type of own product not only shirts. Cups, USB or what ever they want.



And what the reseller of the system can with ease send the production of to any supplier they want. If the owner of the site want to make it them self's or sending it of to someone else.


They can even invite the supplier to access the backend of the system to mark their progress, that then the client can see the progress step of production their orders are when they login to the system.


But right now the system is fully functional, clients can order and reorder shirts, upload their own design, automated bills and quotations. Clients can also put one design on different shirts or material. Fully functional backend for the production so the clients can see how the production is going (what steps are done and whats not).


The next things are :

To have a own made design system.
And a salary system.


Plus so much more to come.

Just a small update on my system.


Im about to do a video how the backend works, as its BIG! Salary system for cutting/sewing/printing/office boys and Quality Control staffs.


With my own made QR reading system staff can punch in what they do each they with their own smart phones. No app needed as my system got its own QR reading system (web based).


Clients can reorder shirts also by scanning the QR code each shirts comes with. (later a selling system for the clients, to know stock and much more)



I have written a CMS system so now each person with my system can make their own URL's/text/layout and so much more so google will list the site better.


Now also with a reseller system so if you have people under you that want to sell your items but you do the production of shirts. Their website their can have their own logo/customizable URL's/picture and text. And when their clients receive your products they got their logo on the label/swing tag and on the packing boxes!


The system support up to 4 different currencies
Unlimited products
10 fabric types
Silk screen printing (But if requested, all other printing types)
And so much more.


Try All products we sell here on Clothing Factory Indonesia - Clothing Factory Indonesia or https://www.cfindo.com


Any request or questions contact me from my sites or here.

Please don't take this the wrong way. I realise English isn't your first language but, to sell to English-speaking customers, you would do well to have someone competent in the language to review and correct your site.

Just saying. No offence intended.

I agree, but the system got a CMS so each client can write what they want them self, right!


And as im a programmer, for me keywords and SEO is more important to me!

Im still not taking offense, but thats all you had to say?


Personally when i get people to review my system i have a much more harder time to actually get people to read the information shown to them then just saying i only read the website and thats wrong!. As the most of the text is kind of hidden away.. in modals so people can focus on the images of the site. For a example, my "minimal orders system" i gone thru around 5 different ways the text shows to kind of forcing people to read the text. And even so i get more people to read it then people that do not.. Its still even close to 80%

Good idea, but very poor implementation and high prices.
Plenty of other manufacturers are producing fully branded and printed t-shirts for less than what you are selling your plain t-shirts.

I'm also a web developer, and I have to say that your website is confusing and has poor functionality. As an example, I wanted to check how much a 5 color print would cost, but the update button closes the popup window instead of updating the prices. You should be using AJAX requests for this type of thing.

Thanks for your input.. Yeah im not so good with AJAX.. But this is just beta 2 for the front end.. and yeah im really stuck with a good system for the printing. But i have already partnered up with a couple of online tshirt design systems that will will work on my site.. But why did not the "update" work?

UPDATE: Sorry i did not answer to your prices.. Yeah thats what we sell them for here in Indonesia.. But my system can be based on what ever the person using the system prices are..
But its a manufacturing system. So you can change daily fabric prices or salary of one staff and the shirt prices will change!


Update2: yeah it close the modal "popup" as it writes it to the URL.. And in that way you can with ease send to a new client that asks for with 50 shirts in different sizes and 5 colors in whatever size they choice with a URL, i got a little URL maker in the bottom to send that to the client. Before they make a account and so on!. More easy to show them the price, and as the price changes in multiple places.

Right... Clearly I misunderstood what you are doing.
I thought you are selling private label t-shirts, but you are obviously trying to build an online t-shirt selling system... Let me just tell you that this type of thing is trivial for a real web developer, and there are a lot of us out there. A single page JavaScript price calculator is all that is really needed. Alternatively, a free shopping cart software with the print areas set as "options" will also do. I can literally set up something like this in less than a day.

It's way too easy... so there is no money in it.

Yeah Jquery i could make that super easy, same as i wrote it on sizes (it calculate the prices directly), it dont need a day i can do it in 20 min max.. But again do it need it? As people keep on changing fabric colors and so many other things all the time.. I think its good when they reload the page. I been doing tshirts sense 1999 here in asia. I looked at 100 of clients when they order and small details like that is really NOT what they care about!. But im not saying i know the answer to the universe and everything? is it 42?


But again this is also a :
Cash register system / for the client and the seller!
Salary system
Productions progress system

Im sorry but do other people know about http://tawk.to? I just got it today and now i can with ease speak to my clients thats on my website directly using the app on my phone or the web. This is a game changer for someone like me. That have one of my main sites, thats not yet converted to my new system and i get around 70,000 hits a month. You can chat with people with ease on site and you know what page and what they are viewing, they can send a image to you in the chat and so much more.. I tried many chat programs before but this is a game changer for me!

I have made what you asked for implicated on the website! It was something i already was thinking about, but i wanted to make the URL's good first as people always ask, i need this amount of tshirts with this amount of print and to be able to send to them a URL with that price is gold for me. But i still have a problem with the .00 for USD and other currencies then IDR.. But i will fix soon!. It still calculate it correctly if you save it and on the "add to cart"


Also also :) I started to remake the front end last month on the 18. As my factory is always busy i dont have time to do everything!
