Alistair's Magic Emporium
Happy Birthday to Alistair's Magic Emporium!!
8 Years already! wow that has traveled fast!
7 Years already!.
6 Years!, time ticks by fast.
5 Years!, The server upgrade went well, still need to add more stock.
Good News!, with the upgrade to the server now complete we can finally start loading all the products.
Due to previous server restrictions we were not able to load all the products, but that has now been fix.
Happy days, and happy shopping
4 Years already!, The online store is getting ready for a server upgrade so we can load more products.
3 Years have come quickly, and things have been good. The online store is completely up and running, and more products are still to be loaded.
After a bit of downtime near the start of the year due to a technical fault the store was rebuilt and given a snappier new lock.
After a bumpy start for the year, and failing to notice the shop had fallen over, I have finally fixed it all up.
Turns out I broke the store during an upload of the Core 2014 set, and failed to notice its catastrophic effect until late Feb. But as the shop engine I use was just releasing a new version, I decided to wait and rebuild the shop with the new version, which came out in Mid March
On the bright side I think the shop looks a lot better for it, I have managed to design some new images and layouts.
If anyone has any suggestions they are always welcome as I would like to make the shop user friendly.
2 Years have rolled around quickly, and things have been good. The online store is completely up and running, but with more and more products being loaded.
Several improvements have been added in the background for the shop, a new storage cabinet, and upgrades to the online store.
Due to a technical problem an upgrade we had to take the shop offline whilst we rebuilt it from the ground up.
This process has now been completed and on the bright side has allowed us to add some more features that were not previously possible, we have now included SEO optimazition that should allow greater searching ability, FREE shipping rules, more contect about the different sets, a news letter you can sign up for (still working on actually making a news letter).
Due to some needed upgrades to the shop and a technical issue with the upgrade process, the shop has had to be put offline for a couple of days.
After the maintinance is complete everything will be back to business as usual, even during this time you can still find Cards via the eBay store, or email us directly EMAIL
Yes it has been one complete Year since first opening the store, it all started with the eBay store opening, and eventually my own online store.
After many hours and months of hard work and support from a few extras I have been successful in opening the Emporium.
Special mention and thanks to the follow people who helped me along the way; Sarah LM, John W, Mattt F, Pia H, Tim B, Gaurav T, Richard H.
From the display side of the website you will not be able to observe much in the way of new design about the Update Feed.
The back end has had a significant structural addition, making it a far easier and seemless process to display and store various updates relevent to Alistair's Magic emporium.
Today "Alistair's Magic Emporium" goes live with its official logo and banner design. I must compliment the artist of the central coloured Mana symbols design. Please see the link below.
Alistair's Magic Emporium is officially created on eBay as an online store. This was with a lot of help and business modelling assistance from a good friend who runs Australia's Online VTES Card Store.
