How to Increase Conversion with On-Site Search

On-Site Search is Your Customers’ Personal Assistant

They say that running an offline store and online store is absolutely different. Probably in some cases. But there are basic things that are canonic for both ways and cannot be neglected.

Imagine yourself searching for some boots or a dress. You come in the store with thousands of products and there is no one there! You start searching without being sure that this store even has something you need or at least something close to it. What are the chances you will buy there? Nobody knows.

But if you have a personal assistant by your side who can shortcut you to the product or help you with variants that can suit your needs, you are more likely to make a purchase.

Your on-site search is the personal assistant that grabs a visitor by the hand and leads to the product. This is the best tool to organize visitors journey in your store.

Template Editor in CS-Cart 4.4.1: Edit Emails, Invoices, Packing Slips, Gift Certificates, and Order Summary in the Admin Panel

Template editor

Hi!

In CS-Cart 4.4.1, we’re presenting a long-awaited function: a visual template editor. It allows for editing emails, invoices, packing slips, gifts certificates, order summaries in the admin panel.

We’ve divided the editor into two menus. In Design → Email templates, admins edit emails; in Design → Documents—invoices, packing slips, gift certificates, and order summaries.

Editing Email Templates

In a CS-Cart store, both customers and administrators receive email notifications. Customers receive emails about their shopping and admins about store management.

Email is a great tool for establishing personal and valuable communication with your customers. It’s great for persuading them to visit more, buy more, and it also helps in keeping them loyal to you. So it’s important to ensure your email notifications are personalized and match the style of your e-commerce business.

Before CS-Cart 4.4.1, you couldn’t see the full list of email notifications for your store, which meant that you couldn’t modify notifications to make them personalized and perfectly fit your business. But now, CS-Cart features a template editor, which allows you to edit email notifications in the admin panel—and without programming skills.

Check out how to edit emails in this video:

Editing Documents

The new template editor allows you to edit invoices, packing slips, gift certificates, and the order summary email. We call these “the documents”.

In the editor, you can configure these documents so that they meet your country standards and match the visual style of your store.

For example, editing invoices is a must-have feature for most store owners. Different countries have different official invoice standards. To issue invoices officially, you have to configure your invoice to meet official standards. With the new template editor, you edit your invoice right in the admin panel.

Hope the new template editor will make your store management easier. Comments are much appreciated!
