IndieCommerce - Order Processing 201

Learn about the latest, advanced tools available for processing your online orders in bulk. In this webinar we will cover bulk order processing, printing invoices in bulk, exporting to shipping solutions, exporting to POS systems and generating custom sales reports. These new features will save your staff time and keep your customers satisfied.

Bulk Upload of Images

This option is best suited for stores with a very large number of images to upload—25 or more.  For smaller numbers of images, it's easier to simply edit products one by one and upload the image that way.

Steps to bulk upload your images

  • Gather your images from your camera/the web/your vendor or distributor, etc.

Store Books: Used Books, Signed Books, etc.

This module allows stores to create 'store books', which are custom products that refer to new books available through Ingram but may be different from them. For example, they may represent used copies, signed copies, or unique editions.

REQUIRED READING

Before using this system, it's important to be up on the basics of custom products. If you've never created a custom product class before, please see the help documentation on BookWeb.org:

Bulk Importer: Importing Attributes

Note: Adjusted SKUs are not compatible with LSI for custom products.  If you plan to use LSI for custom products, do not use this feature.

Use this workflow to extend your custom products with attributes and options, creating product variations customers can choose from when they add the product to their cart.

Scheduler

The Scheduler feature gives Store Admins the ability to schedule content on their website to be published and unpublished at specified dates in the future. This will be particularly useful for events and blog posts as they can be created in advance but scheduled to be published on a later date.
 

Quick Note Field for Orders

The Quick Note field provides Store and Order administrators a field in which notes may be added to an order and displayed on the Order Administration page (Store > Orders).
A couple of  scenarios where other IndieCommerce stores have used this field:

In-Store Pick-up Pane

If ‘In-Store Pickup’ is enabled on your site, customers can opt to pick up their order at your store instead of having it shipped. A Pick-up Pane will be available on the checkout screen. We’ve updated it so that you can customize the language used in the pane.

Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Checkout > Pick-up Options Pane

Cart Settings

Your shopping cart is configured by default, however, there are settings you can adjust to alter the shopping experience for your customers.
