Updated Florist Ecommerce Checkout | Flower Store In a Box

One of the important features of a Flower Store In a Box website is our ongoing development of improvements.  To that end we are releasing a brand new streamlined ecommerce checkout! 

We will still be supporting the existing (classic) checkout however we will no longer be adding any new features to it and all new features will be on the updated checkout.

The objectives of the new checkout are to:

  • Remove unnecessary fields that need to be field. 
  • Hide optional fields
  • Make it easier and more obvious to checkout
  • Choosing a date is easier
  • Real time updates for shipping costs based on delivery times and suburbs

Why are we making this change?

Over the last several years ecommerce sites have moved away from asking for any more information than is absolutely necessary.  In particular the billing address and details were no longer used or validated by credit card companies so asking for them serves no purpose.

We always strive to make it as easy as possible for people to complete a transaction and reducing what they have to enter is a key component of this.

The new visual calendar is a significant improvement on the previous small calendar pop out feature. This is also far more mobile friendly and easier to use on a small mobile device as well as on tablets and desktops.

As always you the customer are free to customize the checkout experience with your own specific business requirements, pickup addresses, card messages, anonymous deliveries, same day cut off times, delivery times, custom messages, authority to leave options and many more unique florist features.
