Announcing Inventory Control Module
This new add-on module allows you to keep track of product inventory, and mark specific products as Out of Stock, In Stock, Discontinued, Back Ordered, or any custom label you wish, all from within eManager. You will not need to edit your web pages or Add to Cart links to prevent an out of stock item from being ordered, or to make a previously out of stock item available again. You can even elect to have the system email you whenever an item is getting low on quantity in your inventory so you can reorder before you run out.

Contact your sales representative for more details, and pricing information.

Announcing Customer Discount Module

Announcing Cart Confirmation for Web Pages
You can now insert a simple line of code into your web pages that will let your customers see the items currently in their shopping cart at the same time they are browsing your web site. You decide which pages the cart will be displayed on, and the exact location for the display on your web page. The display even contains a View Cart and Checkout link, reducing the need for your customers to go hunting those links down when they are ready to check out.

Announcing the eManager Upgrade
&
New Shipping Configuration System

We are very pleased to announce the release of the newest version of our ecommerce tools! You will find an Upgrade button on the main screen of your eManager. Below the button is a link with information on the upgrade. Please read the information carefully, and upgrade your account as soon as possible. We encourage you to check your system settings after the upgrade to make sure everything is as it should be.

The new shipping system will be available to you after you have completed your upgrade. Please review the Version 1-2 Switch section of our eCommerce Shipping Tutorial for information on converting your existing shipping to the new system.

Announcing Per Product No Tax Setting

This new feature allows you to exclude specific products in your database from being charged tax. This feature has been added to all Toolkit and Toolbag accounts.

When adding New Products to your database::

  • Select Add New Products from your eManager and click the Go button. The New Product form will be displayed.

  • After filling in the fields for Product Code, Description, Price, etc, scroll to the bottom of the form until you see the field labelled "Do NOT Tax".

  • Enter the number 1 into the field to indicate no tax should be charged on the product.


To Edit Existing Product Records::

  • Go to View Database Records in your eManager, leave the default settings at Records 1 to 5, and click the Go button. The first five records in your database will be displayed.

  • Scroll through your product records until you find one that you wish to designate as a non-taxable item. (if you already know which product, you can also do a search for the item using Search Database Records if you choose).

  • Scroll down the record to the field labelled Do NOT Tax.

  • Save Changes at the bottom of the page.



Announcing TurboLink

This new feature allows you to setup your product links so that the initial Add to Cart page is bypassed, and the items are added to the cart from your web page. You can set up multiple products on one page that can be selected and added to the cart with a single Add to Cart button. You can also setup single products to be added to the cart with a single click, or, single products with a multiple quantity field that can be added to the cart with a single click.

Use the links below to view working examples of the different methods available for this feature, as well as corresponding instructions for setting up each available method.

How it works:
To use this feature you will need to manually edit the product links on your web pages. For this reason we do not recommend you attempt this unless you have some knowledge of editing HTML code. No adjustments will need to be made in your eManager.


Announcing TurboID

TurboID is a new addition to all Toolkit and Toolbag accounts that allows for more convenient tracking of repeat customers. This is done by issuing a unique TurboID number to each new customer that purchases from your website. Each time a customer purchases from your site using their TurboID number, they are identified by the system, and their new purchase is added to their unique Customer ID record in your eManager database.

To see an online Demo of TurboID, select the Toolkit Demo.  The Toolbag Demo does not have the TurboID activated, so you may compare the two order forms.

Features of TurboID:

  • Configurable on or off by the merchant.

  • The TurboID is automatically included in the customer confirmation email.

  • Customers may choose to set a cookie which lasts for one year. This choice is presented at the bottom of the receipt page with a "Remember Me Next Time" button.

  • During a repeat order, if a TurboID cookie is set, the customer info is auto-filled in when they reach the order form. Any changes the customer may make to their information will update their Customer ID record in your eManager database. Alternatively, the customer may enter their TurboID to have the form auto filled in.

  • During a repeat order the customer may change their TurboID by selecting the Change My Password link on the order form. A changed password (TurboID) will be noted on the Customer ID record in your eManager.

  • During a repeat order the customer my have their TurboID emailed to them if they have forgotten it.

  • All orders placed by a customer using TurboID will be recorded under the same Customer ID record in eManager. To determine a customer's ID number, click on their name in the summaries table in Orders to Authorize, or after doing an Orders by Date search. You may also use the Search Database Records section of eManager to search various criteria. Note that a repeat customer that does NOT use their TurboID when re-ordering will have a new Customer ID number assigned to them.

  • Not yet ready but soon to be released is a complete form for a customer to manage their password and billing information. This form may be accessed without a current order in progress. This application will be accessed via a hyperlink you place in your website.

  • The TurboID system will be the basis for giving preferred/repeat customer discounts in the soon to be released discount module.

Access All Past Batch Reports From eManager

This new feature allows you to pull up copies of any past batch report from your eManager. You have the choice of viewing the report online, having it emailed to you, or both.  Here is how it works:

  • From the Orders/Transactions section of your eManager select Batch Reports from the menu and click the Go button.

  • Enter a date range for the report(s) you wish to view. All reports that fall within the date range will be displayed in a table.

  • Check the boxes for those you wish to view and/or have emailed.  The reports will be emailed to the address you have listed in your Main Account Setup page, or, if you have eTerminal, the same address in your Setting Up eTerminal page.  If you wish to have a copy of the report emailed to a different email address, click on the Change It link and enter the email address you want used. 

That's it!
