These features will dictate various aspects of your site visitors’ shopping experience, both visual and informational. From the Shopping cart Menu, click on “Display Settings.”

Shopping Cart Feature Options

1. Page Header: Welcome To…
The “Welcome to” is “hard-coded” and can not be changed. However, you can add text to give your shopping cart a custom welcome message. Optionally, you may leave this field blank and no welcome to message will be displayed.

2. Show “Client Login” Button in search column:
This option dictates the presence of a client login button within the Shopping Cart’s search column. This button connects users directly to the Secure Users. (See Secure Users for more information)

3. Allow “Email to Friend” feature?
This enables shoppers to recommend products to their friends while they are shopping themselves. Nothing sells better than referrals.

4. Allow “Remember Me” feature?
When your site visitors purchase products from your online shopping cart, they have the option of allowing your Shopping Cart system to “Remember” them. This means that their email address, combined with a password of their choice, can be used for future purchases. The checkout system will then remember all of their previous billing and shipping information so that they do not have to re-type it. Credit Card data is only stored on the system for offline processing systems, and is encrypted for security. Credit card information is never “remembered” for your customers.

5. Display Search Box?
The status of this option determines if shoppers will have the option to search for more products from within the Shopping Cart system.

6. Place “Search Column” on which side of the page?
In order to offer flexibility in template design, you are able to select the left or right screen placement of the “Search Column”. The search column appears within each page of the shopping cart system and allows users to browse categories or search for various products by “Keyword”. This is automatically generated based on your Display and Checkout System settings. The “Search Column” also displays the current contents of your visitors shopping cart and allows them to checkout at anytime.

7. Display “Text Linked” categories?
Determines if your product categories will be listed and linked to within the Search column.

8. Allow users to add product comments?
You can turn on/off the “Customer Comments” feature, which allows site visitors to comment, and give their opinions on your products. The beauty of this feature is that when comments are submitted, they are emailed to the “Comment Verify Email Addr” specified in the Business Information option, allowing you to decide whether you will allow them to be posted. If you wish to accept a comment, simply click “Accept” inside the email. Otherwise, simply delete the email, and the comment will not be posted. This allows you to have total control over the types of comments displayed to visitors.

How should initial searches sort data?
The results of a product search will be displayed in the order specified in this option.

Number of results to display on searches?
