Select Version:
Create an unlimited number of order custom fields. Collect supplemental, required or non-required responses from customers at checkout. You can include as many addendum type checkout questions in your form as you want. You can assign fixed or percentage of subtotal fees or discounts to any of the questions and optionally restrict their application to a specific response. You can even create multiple custom fields for donations which allow the customer to enter the amount they want to contribute during checkout. Display responses in the email, invoice screen, order edit screen, pick list screen and batch reports. If customers have an account, the order custom fields can be synchronized with customer custom fields so that specified checkout responses can be saved with the customer's account and not deleted if/when the normal order data is deleted.

In admin, store owners can use the order custom fields to maintain notes about an order and enter shipping status/tracking numbers so that customers can keep informed about their order status. Enter updates from the individual order edit screen or use the built-in flat file or xml file import feature for bulk updates. An optional order status update email can be sent from the order edit screen or the bulk import. You can specify which order custom fields can be viewed by the customer. Customers do not need to create an account, but can still check their order status on a page you design.

The search tool allows you to search orders for specific time periods and for a specific term in several of the order standard fields and all of the order custom fields. For example you can identify all orders which donated to a specific charity between Jan 1 - 31, 2010. Or you can search all orders which contain the product code widget. You can even export the bill to email address from the results to a flat file. So if you wanted to thank contributors to a charity or notify customers about a recall, the address list will make that task much easier.

We license the Emporium Plus modules by domain/mall. Hence, if you have 10 stores under a single mall (merchant.mvc), our modules can be used under the single domain license. No need to purchase multiple licenses for each of your stores under a single domain/mall. Each store will get their own unique order custom fields module license key which will be available by virtue of the domain license. The license is for one domain/mall and cannot be sold, transferred, or re-distributed. If you have another store in a different domain, that would require another license.

Compare this module with our competitors' pro or advanced or ultimate versions. Those are just words tacked onto a module name. Don't let our low price fool you - compare features and you will find this module probably contains all of the order custom fields features you need. If you don't see a feature you need related to order custom fields, let us know, we may add it. Replace other checkout question and order status modules with this easy to use single module.
