New Features Alerts, New Site Notice Popups & Florist Checkout Coming Soon!

It’s been a few weeks to relax after the mayhem that always surrounds Valentine’s Day and I know of lot of you have taken some much needed time off.

We have however been quite busy responding to the requests that came in about how we could improve the software and add new features.

One big note to make is that we are building a new and very improved checkout experience that is in testing right now!

I’m expecting that this will be released towards the end of this month and you will be able to choose the “classic” or “enhanced” checkout for your website.

Updated Florist eCommerce Checkout

All the normal florist bells and whistles are still there, and you have full control over the user experience and which features you want to use.

New Site Notice Feature

We have though totally updated the Site Notice feature so it’s more useful for both notifications that you are not taking orders but also for potential marketing activities.

You now have far more control for setting a site notice and can have multiple site notices for your site. 

Site Notices - Flower Store In a Box

Choose dates that a site notice will be visible

Choose the date range the site notice is visible

This is great if you are away on holidays specific dates and will not be delivering and need a site notice ONLY during those periods.

Frequency of the site notice visible

Show Frequency of site notice being displayed

A common complaint of the original site notice functionality was that it appeared on every page every time a visitor viewed the site whilst active.

Now you can set the site notice to appear only once on the site!

Code your own

This is a bit of an advanced option but you will now be able to code and style the pop up window yourself. Or you can get us to design a special pop up just for your website!

Marketing Ideas for Site Notices

There are limitless ideas that you can employ on your site for marketing ideas, such as:

Coming Soon Marketing Templates for Site Notices

We are going to design and build some pre-built marketing templates for you to use on site notices so you can drive more sales from the site and will add these in the coming months.

Please note that you need to re-publish your main template to have the new feature added to your website!

Updated Custom Shopping Feeds

If you already use our Shopping feeds (under Marketing in your dashboard) you may have notice we have two new features.

New Shopping Feeds

One is the ability to create a custom Google shopping feed for your site and allows you to tag product with Google shopping custom feeds.

This is super useful if you are targeting more complex Google shopping strategies for long tail keywords.  Think Mother Day product feeds or Flowers for Sympathy or Birthday Flowers.

The second is we have created a Feefo customer date export, again under Marketing :: Shopping Feeds (you need a Feefo account to use this feature).
