A simple click on the Cart button enables you to open a cart page such as this following one:
In this example, the main elements of the Cart page are:
The list of the ordered products, with the possibility to edit quantity or delate the line.
The choice of the carrier among the delivery methods configured in the store.
The specific field to enter a promotional code.
The tick box to accept the terms and conditions.
The payment buttons depending on the available methods in the store.
Each customer who confirms their order becomes a member of your website. Then they can accede to a personal space on your website, and follow their order status.
In the SiteW editor, you create your products directly into the Store block to stay close to the result the visitor will see.
These following tools enable you to manage your product characteristics:
a toolbar to delete, duplicate or save your product
a selector to choose your product categories
a dropdown panel for the price and its options
a dropdown panel for the stock and its options
a specific area to manage product options (free or chargeable options)
a space for private information
a tick box to make your product visible or invisible
The product description can have text, images, videos, links, downloadable documents, etc.
You can configure the display of your stock status and enable the automatic management, including stocks by product option. You can sell unavailable products, by offering pre-order or backorder options.
The seller receives notifications by email and/or in their browser for each order. They also receive notifications in the SiteW dashboard for the current orders.
A “My store” tab has different tools to manage orders, shipping, and bills related to the business activity.
For example, on the screenshot above, we can see the order status: process ongoing. When the status of an order changes (payment received, order shipped or cancelled), the customer is emailed and can also follow their order in their personal space.
The list of your website members shows customers:
You can also configure automated emails according to some events on your store, such as abandoned cart:
First, drag and drop a Store block on a page of your website. Then choose a payment and shipping method. If you want, you can enable automatic billing and stock management. Your online store now is ready. Your customers will have the possibility to order each product created in the Store block. SiteW deals with all the sales tunnel automatically, so you have nothing more to do.
