Yes you read correctly, selling merchandise without a shopping cart, the smart way. Running your online shop through an online order form is convenient and presents a number of advantages, especially for small businesses.
First of all, our order forms do not have any add-ons or hidden footnotes, once implemented, you will not be asked to make additional payments. The forms are integrable with famous payment gateways, such as PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.net, Braintree, Sage Pay, Sisow, PayFast and FreshBooks. If there’s another processor you’d like us to be integrated with, just drop us a line in the comment section below.
One of the most advantageous aspects of using an order form is that you do not depend on the volume of an order. For example, if you sell t-shirts or home baked cookies, you do not have to worry about the scale of placed order. This is something that differentiates us from the classic method of managing an online shop.
Top Tip: because of the ability to integrate with other applications, customer data can be imported into your MailChimp, SalesForce or iContact lists to be later used for email marketing campaigns. Other details can be asked through the form, such as delivery address and date, giving you more information on your clients.
The design of an order form can be highly versatile, but at the same time as user friendly as possible. Using conditional logic can give your form an element of surprise and show clients certain products depending on their chosen options. For example, if they want to purchase cupcakes, the available options will be shown only when they select “cupcakes” from a menu.
Using our advanced calculation system you can set special discounts and offers for your products. This is extremely valuable if you’re running a campaign, like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, which are just around the corner.
Completely customizable and social media shareable, our order form is extremely safe as well. All forms are SSL Encrypted and are protected against spammers through CAPTCHA. You can add you own logo to the form and design it as you see if so it blends in perfectly with your brand identity.
All in all, setting up an order form can be a very convenient solution to a complex issue, the one of building an online shop without a shopping cart. It’s 100% customizable, highly integratable and it serves multiple purposes, not only for selling merchandise, but also for gaining leads and a large contact list.
