Description

ZStore is a full-working template (UI + Source Code) for you to sell goods and get paid through PayPal. People can also purchase products with a cash-on-delivery option. In both cases, the Admin and the buyers will receive an email listing the order details, so the Admin will be able to know if a purchase has been already paid by PayPal or if the goods will be paid on delivery.

Users can edit their profile – username, name, email and shipping address. They can post feedbacks after they have bought a product, or read the existing ones before making a purchase.

The Product screen has a nice full-screen design that shows the first picture, along with the Cart, Gallery, Feedbacks and Wishlist buttons.

The design is clean, code is commented and project folders and files are well organized in the package.

• Check out the Features section below to see what this app does.
• Read the online Documentation to learn how to configure the template’s features and the database (Parse Dashboard).
• Keep an eye to the Change Log on the bottom of this page when an update gets released.

Backend

It’s backend is by Parse Server and it’s hosted on back4appNO MySQL database involved.
Parse Server is flexible, reliable, open source, based on Node.js and well supported by a large community of developers, and back4app is a great BaaS hosting website where you can configure your database, Push Notifications and other features in just a few clicks.

If you want to use a nice Admin Panel to manage data of your database instead of the Parse Dashboard, sign up for a FOREVER FREE account on Adminca.com and watch this video to see how to create a Panel for your Parse App.

Requirements

The latest official version of Xcode – Beta versions of an IDE usually never work 100% properly, and the code of this app has been written using the latest official version of Xcode and you can download it from the Mac App Store. You must use it and avoid Betas.

An Apple Mac computer, updated to its latest OS version – It’s always good to keep your macOS up to date, technology keeps growing and I follow its changes, as well as updating my templates every time a new OS gets released.

An Apple Developer Account with an active iOS Development Program – This is needed for you to publish apps on the iTunes App Store. You can still edit this template on code without that account, but you won’t be able to run it on your real iOS device since you’ll need a Team ID.

Basic knowledge of Xcode and Swift language – You don’t need to be a skilled or professional developer, anyway it’s recommended to have at least the basic knowledge of what you’re dealing with, in order to be able to customize this template and publish your applications on the App Store.

A free account on back4app.com – You can create and edit your Parse App and database, get the necessary keys for configurations and test this template for free. It has limitations though, so please check the Pricing table and consider subscribing for a paid plan after your app got published on the App Store.

A real device to test the app before submitting it to the App Store – iOS Simulators may fail during tests, they are not reliable as a real device is, so I strongly recommend you to always run this application on a real phone/tablet. This is also suggested by Apple’s official Guidelines.

A verified PayPal® Account – Take advantage of the PP features to get paid through this application.

A Sandbox and Production Braintree® Account – Since 2019, the PayPal SDK moved into Braintree® to offer a better payment service. You can create the accounts here:
Sandbox: https://sandbox.braintreegateway.com/
Production: https://www.braintreegateway.com/

A hosting server with PHP 5.6 or higher enabled – GoDaddy is a good choice to create your domain and hosting and upload the PHP file included in the package. NO 000webhost.com or other free hosting providers!

- Removed all the FBSDK frameworks and Bolts.framework files from the 'Embed Frameworks' section of the 'Build Phases' tab

** PLEASE NOTE: You may see a bunch of Buildtime warnings while running the app on your device via Xcode, saying:

 Do not worry about it, just ignore those warnings - they aren't errors - and the app will still work perfectly and the design won't get messed up.
