Near East University Department of Computer Engineering E-COMMERCE FOR LAPTOPS SELLING COMPANY Abdul Halim Abu Kuwaik 20021852
Introduction I was approached by a computer selling company to construct an e-commerce system that allows customers to purchase products, mainly laptops, over the internet. The system was designed to enable customers to browse through the interactive website, fill out an order form, and submit it to the company’s database.
Employees of the company will be able to view the orders made in the form of reports, and deliver the products accordingly. Payments are made in cash or check to the delivery representative upon delivering the product to its customer. This method is called payment-on-delivery.
Analysis of the system After collecting all the necessary information about the company, the analysis phase was started. I determined how the system will be built, what processes were involved, what information was needed, and so on.
Methodology I chose different software to construct the e- commerce system: MS FrontPage (for website design) HTML (for website design) Active Server Pages (for linking website to database) Ms Access (to store orders made and for the user interface)
Website Design After collecting pictures and information from the company, I started designing the website using Ms FrontPage and HTML for the static web pages. I used frames, hyperlinks, tables, and text formatting.
Database Design Using the MS Access software, I constructed a database consisting of 4 tables. The first table was the ‘customer information’ table and included all the customers’ names, addresses, telephones, emails etc. (every customer was given a unique ID auto number to distinguish his/her order from other orders) (every customer was given a unique ID auto number to distinguish his/her order from other orders) The second table was the ‘brands table’ and included the products’ IDs and the product brand.
Database design The third table was the ‘item information’ table and included all the products that were displayed for sale on the website. (That this table was linked via ASP to the order form on the website so that the company can add any number of products to its range in the database and will automatically be updated in the website). (That this table was linked via ASP to the order form on the website so that the company can add any number of products to its range in the database and will automatically be updated in the website). The fourth table was the ‘manager’ table and included the id, user, and password for the Admin webpage online.
Reports Using the Ms Access features, different reports were generated for the employees of the company to view orders made by customers. I included a customer information report, a products description report, a delivery report, and a general information report.
User Interface The user interface was designed to allow employees of the company to view and print different reports. I used the form option in the Ms Access software to create the user interface.
Summary The project was considered successful despite of some minor faults such as the customer having to submit more than one order form if he/she wants to order more than one product. Several future development plans are in progress to better enhance the system. These are a few: -Adding a shopping cart system. -Adding a shopping cart system. -Payments by credit card over the internet. -Payments by credit card over the internet. -Giving regular customers a user name and password to receive special discounts and offers. -Giving regular customers a user name and password to receive special discounts and offers.
