October 2015

My, oh my what a busy few months! We’ve made quite a few improvements to Vinimo and have added some cool new features. Read on for full details!

Gift Wrapping

Now you can let your customers choose gift wrapping at checkout. Simply activate gift wrapping in the admin console and set a price, and Vinimo will then add a gift wrapping option (below) to the order details screen at checkout.

Gift wrapping fields

The gift wrapping fee you set is added to the order automatically at checkout, and the gift wrapping message appears in the order details screen in the Vinimo admin console. Try it out yourself and see what you think!

First-time Customer Discounts, Auto-assignment to Customer Groups

We have added a new feature designed with two goals in mind: 1. encourage new customers to order and/or 2. automatically assign new customers to customer groups. Here’s how it works:

In the admin console go to Site -> Discounts. Here you’ll find a new First-time Customer Discounts area. In it click Add New, and the following dialog will appear.

new_customer_discount

 

In this screen you first need to enter a code that you will give to your new customer(s). They will be able to enter this code when registering or checking out with your website for the first time. You Cheap Jerseys have have two options available, and you are free to use just one or both:

  • Discount. Enter a percentage discount you would like to apply to the customers’ first order
  • Assign to Customer Type. Want to easily add a customer to a group group when they register? Choose a group here and they will be added to it automatically after entering the code. If not you can just leave the option set to None.

How easy is that? I’ll tell you: super-duper easy! Give the code to your existing customers (so they get the right group-based discount) or to your new customers to encourage them to register and order. Either or both are fine.

Press Reviews’ Visibility

We know how important reviews and points can be for selling wine, and so we’ve tweaked the design to bring numerical ratings front and center so customers can identify these highly-rated wines easily. Press ratings are now prominent in all areas, including the list page:

press_reviews_list

…and in the homepage widgets. (When there are multiple ratings they stack neatly on the right.)

…and more. We’ve also made it easy for users to search for rated wines by adding a new field to the Advanced Search form here:

press_reviews_advsearch

 What does this all mean for you? Add those 90+ ratings! Putting them in the system is virtually guaranteed to drive  sales.

New Editable Order Shipped Message

Need to give your customer some new or additional information when sending them the order shipment notification? Now you can. Shipping orders in the admin console now gives you an edit window which allows you to edit the text o the notification email sent to your customer. Make changes or send as-is, you decide. And if you want to skip the email altogether you can do that as well.

Sale Wines

Wines on sale are now more visible is all the screen in which they appear. The widget cheap oakleys sunglasses design makes these wines especially prominent.

That just about covers everything for now. I should also mention that we Как have a major new feature that we expect to roll out in November. We think you’re going to love it, and will let you know when it goes live!

Enjoy your Vinimo!
