Store Features

Ask A Bookseller

The ‘Ask a Bookseller’ feature creates a new webform on your site where customers can ask staff questions about specific titles. This is a great and easy way for stores to upsell and handsell titles.
 
This feature will also create a button labelled 'Ask a Bookseller' which takes the customer from the product page to the Ask a Bookseller webform. This option will only be available for books that don't have an 'Add to Cart' button.
 

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The Scheduler feature gives Store Admins the ability to schedule content on their website to be published and unpublished at specified dates in the future.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.
 

Block Title Link

The Block Title Link feature allows you to turn the title of a block into a link to direct customers to a page on your site.

NOTE: The feature is enabled by request only. Please navigate to Store > Configuration > Account Information & Preferences > Store Features and submit a request for it to be enabled.

Navigate to Structure > Blocks > Select edit for the block you want to adjust the title for

Preorders

As preorders are becoming an increasingly important way in which books are sold and marketed through stores, we’ve compiled a list of the Preorder features we offer.

NEW: Stores can now choose to show preorders as 'On Our Shelves Now' as long as the store is using Local Store Inventory and the preorder is present in the LSI file.
