Updated Checkout and New Features

Our checkout experience has undergone a significant overhaul based on your feedback and extensive research into user behaviour on florist websites. We've introduced a plethora of features requested by you, making the checkout process more intuitive and efficient. At Flower Store In a Box, we understand the unique needs of selling flowers online, which is why we've crafted a purpose-built, modern e-commerce checkout tailored specifically for florists.

To streamline the checkout process further, we've minimized clutter and introduced new features such as pre-ordering options and improved usability for pickups. We've also integrated a cart summary directly into the checkout, eliminating the need for a separate page. Other additions include cutoff times for weekend orders, location-based surcharges, inventory integration, and enhanced error handling for failed transactions.

Our checkout only collects essential information, making the process quicker for customers. Moreover, you have the flexibility to customize the checkout according to your specific requirements.

Revamped Checkout Design:

Our checkout interface has undergone a sleek makeover, simplifying its appearance by seamlessly integrating labels into the form fields. This cleaner layout ensures a more user-friendly experience for customers during checkout.

Product Summary Integration:

Now, on the right-hand side of the checkout page, your customers will find a comprehensive summary of their order. This includes all items in their cart, along with associated costs such as delivery fees and surcharges. Editing items is now quick and effortless.

Enhanced Coupon Management:

We've refined the coupon entry process, making it more intuitive for customers to redeem discounts, single-use offers, or free delivery vouchers with ease.

Streamlined Joining Process  during checkout:

Joining during checkout is now as simple as a single click. Customers need only check a box to be automatically enrolled, receiving a confirmation email along with a password for their account.

In-Store Pickup with Additional Notes:

Now, you can add custom notes for each pickup location, providing valuable information to customers regarding specific pickup locations directly within the checkout process.

Simplified Pickup Selection:

Pickup options are now presented as buttons, eliminating the need for a dropdown menu. Choosing pickup also clears any unnecessary delivery-related information from the checkout interface.

Location-Based Surcharges:

Easily apply surcharges for deliveries to specific locations, such as shopping centers, ensuring accurate pricing for different delivery destinations.

Real-Time Inventory Integration:

For users of inventory management systems, stock levels can now be displayed in the shopping cart, prompting customers to make purchases while ensuring items out of stock are promptly removed with alerts.

Customizable Lead Times:

Set lead times for different product categories, allowing customers to order items that require additional processing time.

Minimum Order Enforcement:

The minimum order value requirement is now enforced directly within the checkout process, ensuring orders meet your specified criteria.

Alcohol Verification:

Alcohol orders are now subject to verification during checkout, preventing Alcohol only purchases.

Enhanced Transaction Error Handling:

Transaction alerts encountered during checkout are now logged, providing valuable insights into customer interactions and checkout issues for improved troubleshooting.

Prevent unauthorized access attempts and credential stuffing by implementing enhanced security measures to safeguard customer accounts.
