2. Product Variants, Customizations, and Custom Questions

Do you need to take in extra information from customers buying from you? We’re talking about anything from asking them where they first heard about your shop down to essential information you need to complete their orders.

On Cococart, head on over to the Customizations section of your product dashboard to add options for specific products, e.g. optional add-ons like extra ingredients. 

Adding any Variants lets you create different options of the same product, e.g. size, color, and the like. 

If you want to add a general question that all customers should answer when they order, regardless of what they’re ordering—e.g. “Type any special requests here” or “Where did you hear about us?”—you’ll find that under General settings.

3. Daily Order Summary

Keep track of the day’s sales so you can see your most popular items and track your inventory or raw materials.

With Cococart, it’s easy to see at a glance just which products sold the most, together with the typical fulfillment method chosen using our Daily Order Summary section. 

Want to get the same information across a number of days or weeks? You can select a date range in case you want a bigger picture of how each product is doing.

Available for: Startup and up

5. Custom Logo in Emails

One amazing Cococart feature we’re especially proud of (if we do say so ourselves) is being able to help you send professional order confirmation emails and receipts automatically to customers. 

And if you really want to elevate your small business, it might be time to consider branding these emails with your own logo.

This way, anytime a customer shops from your business, they’re able to get a seamless brand experience that’s all you.

Available for: Business and up

6. Email Reminders for Pickups and Deliveries

Okay, honesty hour: have you ever had a customer say they’ll pick up their order, but when the time came to actually do so…crickets?

It’s happened to the best of us, and that’s why we’ve included this awesome Cococart feature to help you out.

Say hello to automated emails that will promptly remind customers to pick up their orders on the morning of their chosen pickup or delivery date.

To find this feature, head over to the bottom of the Fulfillment section of your Settings, then toggle on Email Reminders. Once on, customers will receive timely emails reminding them about their scheduled pickup. 

Available for: Startup and up

7. Order Cutoffs, Booking Start Dates, and Inventory Management

Depending on the kind of products you’re selling on your Cococart store, you or your customers might need a bit of lead time before their orders get in their hands.

That’s where these powerful Cococart features under the Calendar setting come in.

The Cutoff Date feature is extra handy if you want to make sure customers can only place orders for products a number of days in advance. Use this to:

  • Take pre-orders for special collections
  • Give allowance for personalized or customized orders

On the other hand, if you prefer to set a specific date when customers can begin booking orders—e.g. if you’re going on vacation or have a launch date for your shop—then you’ll want to set a start date.

This is also where you can manage the maximum number of orders for specific products or fulfillment methods in your shop. 

You can set these limits for specific days—for example, if you can only take in 3 orders of cheesecakes on a holiday. Or make sure that this setting is applied daily.

8. Send as Gift

We truly believe one of the best ways a small business can grow is when their customers give their products as gifts to friends.

After all, that’s free advertising for your business, and those recipients could very well turn into future loyal customers.

That’s why one of the very basic features we include in Cococart (for free!) is the ability to let customers send orders as gifts to friends and family.

Enable this as an option under your General settings, and include an optional prompt to include a short personal message alongside their gift.

Available for: Free Forever and up

9. Autofill Returning Customer Info

Did you know that if any customer has ordered from any other Cococart shop, it’ll be so much faster for them to purchase from yours?

Whether you have loyal customers who order from you on a regular basis or if you’ve part of a community of shoppers, you’ll love this amazing Cococart feature.

If a customer has bought from your store or any other Cococart merchant before, then their information is saved and will be auto-filled in their next orders. How cool is that?

This is to make the ordering process faster and easier for your customers (leading to faster checkouts and lowered chances of losing a sale), but it’s also a fantastic reason to start getting your business friends to hop on the best ecommerce platform for home businesses—and, ahem, of course we mean us!
