this Site www.chromtech.net.au
miniSITE for”mobiles”
NEW “INTRO” Site
www.chromtech-aus.com


( “chromtech.com.au”
  > now obsolete)

 . after countless WebDesign tools / upgrades
. . . Our basic Web Design Tool / edit tool is still via NOF version 3 to 13 - still “Clunky” but in simplistic mode
 . . . it’s OK for us-

3rd party tools used over time thru’ their evolution of some features and

pages are still maintained retained from Win XP >Vista>WIN7?. upgrades. .

& So . . . MUCH duplication
we apologise !

. . . but IT IS Dynamic
. . . & that’s evolution !

. . . still On-going
& never-ending

2015+>

Now ! . . . Our SITE is Compatible with . . .

  • PCs (. . .  of course ! ); PDF, FlipPAGEs, AND many FLASH features
  • Fly-out Menus, NAV BARs,, fancy Slide Shows . . .where HTML-5 still chronically struggles OUR preferred System

and YES! . . . Apples, I-PADS, Androids, mobile phones are now generally supported via our Website
. . . albeit with some limited features; NOW with some screen resolution compatability
 . . . eg  but still NO FLASH yet! . . . ( but that’s their problem / hangup . . .  NOT Ours ! )

some of our “proto” SHOP

still useful for our Internal simple use

Interfaces to MAL’s Cart

On-line SHOPPE

 - NOW fully Functional and includes built-in Search feature . . .with some limitations / compromises

Mobile SHOPPE
(miniSITE)

. .. A QUICK Overview . . . fully functional with some “on-the-fly” improvements
 . . . but we R still under development.
Mobile SHOPPE
we cover ~1000 individual item in this Shoppe (out of 30,000+ in our complete range )
many with up-to-date “system pricing

Flip-Cart

>>> NOW ! FlipPAGE SHOPPE via /index.PHP extension to ALL FlipPAGES “URL”
Prices for our MAIN Supplier 18,000 items but YOU Search for them via CatNo SEARCH within the FlipPAGEs

Whether we add more ???. . . it IS unfortunately also feeding INFO to our competitors
 . . .but catch if u can!
 . . .  but we may/will require YOUR Registraion in future for full pricing

Flip-Cart
see FlipSite

our SHOPPE(s) ??? . . . but Now several versions ? . . . “it’s called evolution”
 
. . .
BUT All are more or less “ in sync” . . . based on the same pages/info and similar features
. . . to cater for those who want options or have their own “hangups” re new ideas, lack of resources etc

PC SHOPPE  . . . MALs CART is NOW “fully” implented
with a really “slick” FlipShop variant and “system”
. . . Prices are up-to-dateat least for our Main Supplier Products

BUT NOW 2016 - fully implemented HTML5 integrated SHOPPE at chromalytic.net.au

The initial HTM PC SHOPPE - an attempt to include some Drop down option, Radio Buttons . . .
& dismal in hindsight . . . not really relevant to us !
 . . . far more difficult to DB integrate / implement into database / accounting systems anything worthwhile !

 . . . Improvisations . . .
Shipping Costs ?
. . . currently improvised . . . soon to be based on Post Codes in Australia and by Weight of consignment
functional but very much improvised . . . short site Cart designer problems ???

International Shipment - Freight Costs to be added manually entry only by customer  . . . as a separate Line Item in CART . . .
$85 min charge plus $20/kg is typical
; . . . & at our cost price
where kg weight in description of goods AND/OR for obvious heavy/bulky items

A similar Import freight charge applies ( to be added ) for non stock standard items

Generally . . .
For SHOPPE Carts to really be feasible . . . someone some smart-arse nerd out there really needs to work on
Database integration with wildly fluctuating Currency Exchange rates in mind

. . . Hence Our need and temporary fix / “workarounds” . . .

NEW !  > from . . . Jan 2015
Our On-line Shop Cart(s) still NEEDs to  Allow for Exchange Rate variations ( . . . just intolerable & unsustainable for Us! )
SO! . . . Our Shop Prices are set at a Base XR AUD/USD=0.95 ( adjusted to a more realistic current 0.79 (as of Mar2015 following the “”CRASH” late 2014 and will be manually and timely adjusted to the current XR at date of Shipment if / as necessary

YOU PAY . . . ( for Governments and Banks blunders / mismanagement . . . arguably ?
     PP Invoice 1 at XR=0.79 . . . regard this as a deposit to implement our Ordering process
     PP Invoice 2 . . . Prices re-calculated to the Current XR . . . but ONLY if necessary
You pay “ the difference”, to complete the Order and to allow for any minor adjustments re freight, mistakes etc or errors due to limitations (as in almost ALL Cart designs.
We will manually make the necessary adjustments and send the “top up” PP Invoice(-2) to you for XR as needed on Invoices and minor freight adjustments)
No Payment in Total . . . No shipment !
A Credit in your favor is issued against your next orderr

More . . . re AUD Prices

The MAL’s SHOPPE Cart PP Invoice Header /” Instructions”l form will have an approx XR posted if you wish to calculate an estimated cost

. . . that’s the best we can do . . . as involuntary “Tax Collectors” for the TAX Dept
and 
- they can’t / won’t even provide decent s’ware tools to assist
. . . to compensate for an arguably  crazy WW-W(oose”) economic system
You can of course ask for a “RFQ” and order as normal via our PC based  Quote / Order Confirmation system,
. . . details via phone and / or e-mail request
There may be some price discrepancies in the short term until we get our overall  “ system” synchronised

BUT Note . . . we DON”T Accept CC Orders over the phone ! . . . neither will anyone else these days !
AT ALL TIMES . . . we will try and work to a reasonable compromise re pricing . . . in your favour !
BUT . . .ONLY IF YOU TALK TO US !

re SITE SPEED . . . > 2015+ AND > 2019 still Nothing has changed
Sorry! . . .we can’t wait for” Turnbull”l and his “NBN”
despite their “scammers” insisting we upgrade If / When etc . . .  promises . . . promises !
to Hell with them ! . . . I say ! . . . they’re ALL Padded with “Bullshit!”
even with Telstra AND Optus (interchangably) ADSL2 . . . it is still NOT good !
even with TV we’ve upgraded Foxtel Cable > Satellite Dish


SO ! . . . We’ve gone to the CLOUDS and to hell with Telstra and the “Feds” Govt and their procrastination on this !
In Boronia a far diststanr 1km from the Telstra Exchange & 30km from Melbourne GPO

our actual UPLOAD IS /would be ~800kbs Download 2Mb/sec on so-called ADSL2+
. . . must be the WORST Internet speed in AUSTRALIA . . . now arguably the 3rd WORLD !

IT IS A JOKE . . . NBN > politicians > Turnbull . . . most / ALL of  ‘em are “bloody imbeciles” !

So .  . Our site is NOW fully hosted overseas “ in the Clouds” . . . and it IS FAST(er) !
2017 albeit now being deliberately choked by Telstra > ISPs . . . in favor of mobile phones/  download of movies by “pirates” etc and slowed down by the rest of you “web junkies”

at this time . . .  ITS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST WE CAN DO. . . even if YOU still  insist on using those damn “mickey mouse” phones for browsing !
ANYWAY NOW WE have that (“at least’) covered !  (but  with Still have Your obvious limitations using  THAT “crap” web technology )
lets’ face it the problem is STILL all in YOUR hands . . . or your Companys’ . . . to get up to speed
let’s face it . . .  it’s ALL Those “ twitter and twats” that are literally ”bogging down the Web infrastructue
