Store usage

We have received a few questions about the new shopping cart, and there seems to be a couple that keep getting asked, so we thought we would try to help explain.

Coupons:

To enter a coupon, you have to view your cart.  Using the quick checkout will not enable you to enter a coupon code.

coupons_explained

In the upper left hand corner you will see a brief outline of your shopping cart.  You can either click the shopping bag and go to your cart, or click the items, which will then open a larger view, and click the “view cart” button.

 

 

 

Once you have your cart open, under your items, you will see “What would you like to do next?”

coupons-2

You have the option of entering a coupon code, entering a gift voucher (gift certificate), or seeing all shipping options and prices.

Choose which you would like, and enter your information.

After that is done, you will have the opportunity to enter billing/shipping address, edit shipping method, enter payment and complete your order.

 

As a special note, we had it set by default that you must be logged in to apply any code.  We have now changed it so you can enter it at any time, but you will still have to be logged in to check out.

 

Quantities:

One of the big new features is that you can order any quantity you want of an item (over a set minimum)
On any given product page, under the price and pricing discounts, you will see the quantity box

quantity-2

This box is originally populated with the minimum for that item.  You can use the  + or – buttons to change the quantity, but these will only increase (or decrease) by 1.  If you would like to order 3.50 oz of a ring, you will need to type it in.  If you change the number, then try to add less than the minimum quantity, it will let you add it to the cart, but it won’t let you check out.  It will show you which item you have that is less than the minimum.

 

We are sure there will be other questions that are worth an explanation here, and we will continue to do so.  Don’t be shy, let us know if you don’t understand something.  Chances are if you don’t, somebody else doesn’t either.

And remember, It’s In The Maille!

 

 

 

 

 

 

New shopping cart

A while back we asked you want you wanted in a shopping cart. We have told you we were hard at work on it. Well, we are almost there. We hope to launch our new cart this weekend, but we though we would give you a sneak peek at what is in store.

Aside from a new look, with streamlined navigation, we have added a number of new features.

quantity

 

You will be able to purchase any quantity of an item you would like. There will be a minimum for each item that originally populates the quantity, but feel free to change it to anything over that. You will also notice that we still have our built in quantity discounts. The more you buy, the more you save.

 

 

out-of-stock

 

We understand your disappointment when you go to that item you wanted and it’s out of stock. You keep looking, and it’s still not there. Well, now you don’t have to. Sign up and be notified by email when any item is put back in stock.

 

 

wish_list

 

You wanted a better wish list, and now you have it.  You can have multiple wish lists, name them all, move items between wishlists, move items into your cart, share items on twitter or facebook so your friends know what you want.  You can even email a list to somebody so they can go shopping for you.

 

 

downloads

Our PDF downloads for tutorial are popular, but sometimes we know they can be lost.  Even on your computer, we know it can end up going *poof*.  So we give you a new download center.  This will keep track of all your PDF downloads, and if you loose one, you can download it again.  There will be a limit on how many times you can replace it, so it is still up to you to try and keep them safe.  It will also only keep track of your downloads moving forward (nothing from the old cart)

 

 

Can you expect more?  Of course you can.  We have plenty of more awesome for you, but we don’t want to give it all away just yet.
In the week following the launch of the new cart, you can expect a number of giveaways, specials, and general awesomeness to celebrate the Grand Re-opening of our shopping cart, so keep your eyes out.

And remember, It’s in the Maille.
