Open Deals is a Free Deals Site distribution, based on Drupal 7, Drupal Commerce and other modules. You can use the distribution for you or your clients and you can modify it at will. Netstudio, a drupal development services agency in Greece is behind the distribution and you can ask for paid support if you need help installing, setting up, hosting or modifying your site. We hope that the distribution will be beneficial and useful for you. We'll be glad to listen to your comments and feedback.
1. Install as you would install Drupal.
2. Do any modification you see fit to make your site work as expected. Most probably, you will want to:
a) Change the logo and / or the colors of your site. We propose that you do a subtheme and not alter the main theme.
b) Add and setup your payment methods and checkout process.
c) Change the texts of the site to make it unique.
d) Update the links to Facebook, Twitter etc. to yours.
e) Insert your own Google Analytics ID and setup your Google Analytics account to accept e-commerce data.
We have prepared the "Deals management" view that will show all deals and has links to the steps you need to take in order to create a new one. Is is the first (left) menu item on the admin menu. The link is /deals-management.
Currently, the installation profile works only with MySQL databases. In order to make it work with other databases, you will have to import the db.sql file manually.
The Open Deals distribution is open source and free to use.
You may customize it at will for you or your clients without paying any license fees.
