Having been active within the DNN marketplace for years now , specifically the ecommerce sphere we like to think we have a pretty good grasp of not only what the market wants but also what makes a great product. So we are proud to announce with the release of the Resource Management Pro module in December 2014 we now have three DNN modules that can be used to cover 99% of your ecommerce needs.

Resource Management Pro

Turn your website into a fully functional resource booking system, great for selling resources where the customer is required to pick a start and end date e.g. appointments, classes or renting physical assets. Admin has full control over the number of spaces available and when a resource can / cannot be booked e.g. don’t accept bookings 2 weeks into the future or public holidays etc.

Action Handling

A recent project that we have worked on is the ecommerce store for Action Handling. Action Handling sell over 11,000 items online related to storage and handling of materials using Cart Viper as the ecommerce store.

We worked together with Sharon Ensbury to implement a complete solution for the client. Taking the designer’s mock-ups and converting these into the layout and functionality requirements for the store.
Responsive design was incorporated to allow browsers on tablets, mobile devices and laptops to browse and purchase from the store.


The store features a lot of custom Razor generated features which we are especially proud of. This demonstrates the power of Cart Viper and the new Razor support we have implemented. Here are some of the features and templates we created for the project.

Mega Menu

Due to the vast number of items and categories we created a custom menu using a mega menu layout to allow customers to quickly locate the category. Driven from the data stored within Cart Viper and render to the page using a custom Razor script.



Category List

We replaced the standard category list view with a custom one, this allows the browser to switch between list and grid view as well as sorting.

This goes to demonstrate how easy it is to change the layout of standard Cart Viper templates with custom ones using the built in template and Razor support.



Product Details

The standard product details page was replaced with a custom one which allows the customer to select the correct model from the range, view the specifications and watch any videos that are assigned to the product.


Developing custom templates with Razor is fast and powerful giving you complete access to the data and DNN framework. The possibilities are endless to what you can achieve.


This is what the implementation partner had to say about our us and our product.

I looked at Cart Viper during the design stage of my material handling equipment website I had used Cart Viper on a number of other e commerce websites but none of them were as complex as Action Handling. Action Handling has over 11,000 lifting and handling products and all of them have different variations and price structures. As well as all the usual product details we wanted to allow customers to download product pdfs and view videos for some products. We wanted to show product variations neatly in tables and wanted to easily update the product database when products and prices changed. We wanted customers to be able to pay via credit card or pay on account. We wanted to disable some functionality, change text, and add new functionality.

Before starting the project I downloaded all the leading DNN E Commerce stores and compared them in a table against all of my client requirements. Cart Viper looked as though they were the only store that would meet most of the requirements. If I had any doubts as to whether the product had any shortcomings I needn't have worried.   Cart Viper answered all my questions in a timely manner and filled me with confidence that I could make changes to the product templates and assured me that they would be there if I needed them to make any changes that were not straightforward.

We have ended up with a fantastic looking site and Mark McAvoy has been an absolute star ensuring that all the customer requirements were met and ensuring our responsive skin and Mega Menu was integrated with Cart Viper and everything works well on mobile, tablet and desktop computers.

As if that wasn't enough Mark has not just followed our instructions, if he thought something could be done in a better way he told us.

This was an extremely enjoyable project. Dee Jones Design was responsible for the design, Action Handling had their ideas of how the website would look and tested the functionality met their business model and processes, and Cart Viper were an important part of that team.

I would recommend Cart Viper to anyone considering adding a E Commerce functionality to a DNN website.

Providing First Class Support

Here at Cart Viper we understand that without first class support no matter now great your product is it will fail, customers need to have 100% confidence in you to quickly assist with any issues they may have. Along with the confidence the product continues its development life cycle with new and innovative features added and enhanced that will ultimately translate to more sales for your store.

We like to think we have a great balance between an excellent product and customer support. We recently spent some time working with Debt - Proof Living and they had some kinds words to say about the quality of our work:

“We have been so pleased with Cart Viper. The level of customer support the Cart Viper team has provided is beyond exceptional. It's difficult these days to be able to find developers who are able to understand what you need from not only a technical standpoint - but also from a business and marketing perspective.

Nigel and Mark are able to understand and provide support on both fields. We've worked with them on creating a few custom additional add-ons and the pricing has not only been reasonable but the job is always completed in a timely manner. They don't rest until everything is set up correctly and it works exactly how you intended. I highly recommend the Cart Viper platform and we are very satisfied in our experience thus far.”

Max Halberg, Director of Digital Marketing for Debt-Proof Living

Cart Viper offers different levels of support ranging from community to enterprise to ensure there is a support option to fit any budget and support level your organisation requires to ensure instant response to your queries and questions.

A Great Product Deserves Great Support

jigsawOur aim is to create the best ecommerce solution for the DotNetNuke platform. A simple statement to make but a pretty bold claim, so we constantly listen to your feedback and suggestions which drives our development cycle. Never ready to rest on our laurels we are always working on improving Cart Viper.

However no matter what we do to our product without providing great support we won’t be able to achieve our bold claim.
Don’t take our word for the high quality of support we offer with Cart Viper take a look at Bill Losey’s review.

“Great, great, great, great, and oh yea, did I say great? I have found it to be rare to purchase any DNN module that does what the developer says the module will do.
Cart Viper is a rare exception and a pleasant surprise and the support is equally great and surprising. I have either evaluated or purchased no less that four eCommerce modules and every one ended in total disappointment.
Try Cart Viper and unless you have some truly off the wall requirements, the folks at Cart Viper will have you covered. All I can say to them is thank you for a wonderful product and terrific support.”

So if you are ready to see what all the fuss is about, try us out on your next ecommerce product. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Its always great to hear from our clients, recently Sharon Ensbury from WSI Captivating Web Solutions created the ecommerce store Wendy Warren Jewellery using Cart Viper. Here is what Sharon has to say about the experience.

“I have used Cart Viper on a uk based jewellery site that to date has 500 products.  The module was very cost effective, and installation straight forward.  The module comes with a .CSV file for importing the products and categories and linking to images and we found that to be easy to use too. Further down the line the client decided they wanted to change the categories of the products and on a Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, I contacted cart viper who responded within hours telling me how to do it. I really would recommend this product to anyone searching for an e commerce solution for DNN.”
