Lesson 43. Orders — How to Create an Order from the Storefront

Below you'll see the full description of the process. So, if you prefer reading instead of watching, welcome!

We start from the ecommerce cart solution storefront. Look for a desired product or just for a good offer. Select a product, set the amount, and then add a product to cart. After that CS-Cart eshop software provides three options — continue shopping, go straight to the checkout page, or visit the cart page, and check the content. We go to the cart page. Here we can review our products, make some changes to the content, apply gift certificates or promo-codes, calculate shipping cost, and recalculate total after that. Let’s proceed to the checkout.

We decide to act as a new customer, so the first thing we do is register for a new account. After clicking Register we will be sent to the second step — Billing and Shipping Address. Here, pay attention to the mandatory fields. Fill in the form, check if billing and shipping addresses are the same, and click continue.

The next step is Shipping options. Decide how you want your products to be delivered. Read the description, and select the appropriate shipping method. Then click Continue.

The fourth and last is the Billing options step. Choose how you want to pay for the order. Switch between tabs to find the method you need, select it. Then you can leave additional notes on the order, sign up for the newsletter, and apply for the terms and conditions of the store if there is any. We check the order summary one more time, apply promo-codes if needed, and finally click Submit my order.

The order was submitted, and now we can read the payment instruction, view order details, view our previous orders, and just continue shopping. Let’s view order details.

There is a plenty of things that you can do on this page of online shopping software. Check order details one more time, print invoice, save it in PDF-document, start communication with one of the administrators or managers, if you have any questions considering the order. By the way the Communication tab will appear after you start a new conversation. And finally you can reorder this order.

You will also receive a letter confirming that your order was placed successfully.

And that’s how you create an order from the storefront and build shopping cart website business.
