Email Footer Message
You can use the email receipt that’s automatically sent to your customer in several different ways. For example, you can:
- Add a message thanking the customer for the order
- Add a coupon in the receipt to entice them back to make another purchase
- Add a special offer for one of your products based on the product your customer just purchased. If, for example, they just purchased Product A, you can send a special offer for Product B
- Add a link to a survey to get feedback from your customer
This is not an exhaustive list, but will give you some food for thought.
If you ship your product and collect payment for shipping, you will find that setting up shipping calculations is very straight forward. You can create as many different shipping options as you want to offer. Each option, like USPS, Fedex, International Shipping, etc. has it’s own calculation based on weight
If you sell digital products, like MP3s, PDFs, MP4s, software you will find that our digital downloads is the answer you are looking for. Once your customer completes the checkout process, we send them a link to download the product in the email receipt. Simple for your customer, easy for you.
Catalog Item Options
You can set up groups of options, like colors, sizes, materials, etc. that can be added to each of your catalog items. You can create what we call Option Groups. For example, you might have an option group of colors and within that Option Group you could have as many colors as you have available for your products. You can have as many Option Groups as you need to give your customers what they are looking for.
You have the option to add 2 options that are included in the NiftyCart Pro membership for an additional fee:
- QuickBooks Interface
- Getresponse Interface
Check out the description of these interfaces in the section below.
Included in Pro Membership and Higher
NiftyCart Pro Membership is for companies that are growing and want to automate their business processes and create a closer connection with their customers
I don’t know about you, but it drives me crazy when I have to create an account to make a purchase. We make it easy for your customers to create an account, IF THEY WANT TO! When they go through the checkout process your customer sees 1 simple option.
“If you want create an account to speed up future purchases, enter a password in the field below.”
That’s it! If they enter a password they have an account and if the don’t, they don’t.
And, if they create an account it’s more likely that they will be back to purchase!
Save for Later
Shoppers, visitors to your site, frequently start the process of finding products using their smart phone because it’s with them all the time. These same shoppers will frequently want to finish their order on a tablet or PC because it’s easier to enter information on those devices.
That’s why we created “Save for Later”. It makes it easy for your customer to save their order on their phone by just entering their email address, that’s it. It’s easy for your customer.
We send you and your customer an email with what they have in their shopping cart that has been saved with a link to easily complete the purchase. The other advantage of this is you have their email address so if they don’t complete the order in, say, a day, you can send them an email and maybe a coupon, to get them to complete the order
This is different than “Save for Later”. If your customer creates and account, or already has an account, we give them an option to save the order for later repurchase. So, let’s say you sell air filters. Your customer comes back ever couple of months and want to buy the same filter. If the order is saved, it only take your customer a couple of clicks and their order is on the way. Simple for your customer, profitable for you.
Upsells are powerful magic. Your customer is in a “buying state”. They have just purchased something and if you put something else in front of them there is a high probability they will act.
Let’s say your customer has just purchased Product A. After they finish checkout they are sent to a page promoting Product B or an Option for Product A. When they click the “Buy Now” button on the upsell page the product is automatically added to the original order. Your customer does not have to go through the checkout process again. It’s easy for your customer and a win for you!
If you are one of the many users of QuickBooks, this interface is for you. It automatically updates your sales and income to your QuickBooks account.
If you are NOT a QuickBooks user, you should seriously consider it because it a very simple way of maintaining your accounting. And, it’s made even simpler with our automatic updating of your sales.
You can use our interface to GetResponse to expand your online presence. GetResponse is a separate service, like QuickBooks, that gives you the ability to create a conversation with your visitors and customers. The interface gives you the ability to add a visitor or customer to a specific email list to send them, for example, a monthly newsletter. This keeps you in front of them so when they are ready to make another purchase you are there.
Giving your customers the ability to chat with you live when they are trying to decide on a product. Your customer can always connect with you whether you are online or off. This can make the difference between getting the sale or NOT.
Included in Enterprise Membership
Real Time Shipping Calculations
During checkout your customers can get the cost of shipping directly from the USPS, Fedex, and UPS. You choose which of the shipping companies you want to use and the services that you want to use from that company. For example, you may offer ground shipping and two day, but not Overnight.
Email Footer Message by Product
Based on the item your customer just purchased, you can send them a special footer message in the confirmation email. This gives you the opportunity to up sell or cross sell other items to your customer. Let’s say, for example, your customer purchased a Red Widget. Your footer message could talk about the benefits of Blue Widgets and how that would be a compliment to the Red Widget they just purchased.
Tracking Pixels (Advanced Topic)
If you are using paid advertising on Google, Bing, Facebook and others, you will have tracking pixels that are used to identify when certain actions take place in your catalog items. For example, let’s say you have an ad to a Buy Now Button on your WordPress blog. You can paste the pixel that the advertising company gives you into your catalog item.
Two pixels are possible with each item. One can be used for a “Landing” pixel. This is fired when the item is displayed, but not sold yet. The Second is the “Purchase” pixel and identifies that the item has been purchased.
Source Tracking (advanced topic)
If you are using links to a Buy Now Button or a specific item in your catalog. You can add a tracking code at the end of the URL pointing to the item. The tracking code identifies where the link came from. When the code is received by NiftyCart, it will be added to a tracking file so you can see the effectiveness where you interest and sales are coming from.
This tracking is crucial to the grow of your business. Knowing where your interest and sales are coming from allows you to maximize where you put your attention to placing your links.
You may find, for example, an ad on Google is getting a lot of clicks, but no sales, or few sales. Whereas an ad on Facebook for the same product may be getting fewer clicks, but more sales. That’s how you grow your business.
You get the ultimate in support with Concierge Service. You have a contact available 24 hours a day to answer your questions and to assist you with any setup or operational questions or challenges you may have.
