I previously covered the Little Enhancement Nuggets in ShopSite v12 sp3. Now let’s cover some more of those smaller enhancements that sometimes are a big deal to merchants.
Email Newly Registered Customers
Now when new customers register at your store you have the option to send them a welcome email. You can even have the email include a one-time use coupon. Many merchants want their customers to register for easier repeat purchases and for marketing opportunities, but they don’t want to force the registration. With a coupon that will be emailed to them for registering, you can incentivize them to register.
Export Reports to Microsoft Excel
ShopSite can give you reports on Sales, Abandoned Carts, Inventory, and many other items. You can have graphs or display the data in columns like a spreadsheet. When using the spreadsheet view you now have the option to export the data in MS Excel format. This can be useful for future analysis or even getting the data into other systems. Just click on the export link to send the report to your browser in Excel format.
When downloading, Excel may ask if you trust the source the data is coming from. After clicking “Yes,” Excel will open the file with the appropriate headers and data.
100 Extra Product Fields
ShopSite has had 50 Extra Product Fields that merchants and designers can use for whatever they want. For example, Google Product Search codes; special product attributes like shape, texture, or flammable; and even things such as states that this product can or cannot be shipped to. You would think that 50 would be enough, but noooo! We had some designers ask for even more, so now you have up to 100! Customize to your hearts content.
Branded Back Office
We understand that most of our merchants only have one store, but there are a rising number of merchants that have more than one. Sometimes they forget which store they are working on when they have multiple browser windows up. To help them identify which store they are in we’ve added the ability to place a store logo in the ShopSite merchant interface.
To add your logo, from the main dashboard screen on the lower right click on the Configure Dashboard link. Then scroll down to the Miscellaneous options section and upload your logo.
These are a few of the small enhancements that may be quite important to some merchants. To see all the enhancements that are in v12 sp3, check out the new features page.
