We’ve been eagerly waiting to officially announce some news that will change the way you see BrightStores. Yes, it really is that exciting! Staying up to date on Industry trends is important to us, and that includes the look and feel of our Online Stores. This is why we are so excited to announce our New Company Store Templates! In addition to the beautiful and modern feel of the New Templates, there are a myriad of other innovative features we’ve added that will have you rushing to implement it into all of your Clients Online Stores! Let’s dive into what makes our New Template so special.
Let’s start at the beginning. The home page is the first impression of your website and you want it to have an impact on shoppers who are visiting the Store. With our New Templates, we have made customization even more personal, which works in the favor of your End User Client by guaranteeing brand guidelines are never compromised. With the ability to now change settings on your own to explore different layouts, we are confident you’ll find the perfect variation that works for your Clients unique Store.
In our old templates, you were more likely to lose your hard work when switching templates. However, we have good news! Now you are able to change specific aspects of your Store within the Admin area and not worry about the rest of the settings already in place. For example, if you wanted to maintain the current orientation of your products but change the layout of the rest of the webpage, our New Templates will make it a breeze because you don’t have to switch templates to change the layout. This option is especially useful for Distributors who choose to go the DIY Store route, because as talented and quick as our Store Art Team is, some prefer to do it on their own time.
To ensure your Clients branding is held to the highest standards, there are a few more Home Page features we are thrilled to tell you about including:
- The ability to modify Error Message Colors to appropriately reflect branding guidelines
- You can now add a message to your shoppers at the top of the homepage that pops up immediately upon visiting the site
- Add more links in text boxes in the page footer which enables you to fit more content on your home page in general
- Upload favicons
While some of these new features may seem small, they are definitely mighty. For End User clients who care deeply about their branding, something as simple as the color of a button or an extra link can make all the difference. We’re sure you have a client or two who feel this way, and we can’t wait for you to amaze them.
The first way you’ll find to amaze them upon beginning their search for the perfect Promo Product, is how easily accessible our new filters are! There is nothing more irritating than a website that’s difficult to navigate. So we did the exact opposite! Various filter options on the left hand side of the Store make the shopping experience incredibly streamlined and user friendly. That way, your clients can effortlessly find exactly what they’re looking for simply by narrowing down products by size, color, price, and more.
Once shoppers have easily navigated to the product page using our filters, they’ll notice a few key differences right away.
- Our Category page used to show only a limited number of items, so some items may be cut off or automatically moved to the next page. With our New Template you are able to manually choose exactly how many products you wish to display on each page.
- When viewing a specific product in the old template, the product title or description may have been cut off. However, in our New Template you will now be able to see the full product description and title with no issues.
- Our new size and colors filter is so sleek, and we can’t wait for your shopping experience to be more efficient because of it! Instead of every single size or color being listed on the product page separately, you are now able to filter and choose sizes and colors based on the other. For example, if you need a purple shirt in a size Large, you can view all colors available in a size Large which enables you to locate your desired product quickly!
As you can tell, the Product Page options in our New Theme are all about one thing – efficiency. The filters make the Storefront more polished and professional, which makes your shoppers want to keep coming back. We call that a win for everybody!
With our new and improved checkout page, you’ll never lose your place! This is all thanks to the recently revamped flow of the checkout process. With all of the steps listed across the top, such as Payment, Shipping, and more, you will enjoy the ability to easily go back and forth to different steps. Whether you need to change your Credit Card number or simply see the estimated day of arrival for your amazing new products, we’ve got you covered! With a more logistical flow, we are sure you’ll love how simple and easy the BrightStores checkout process is ALMOST as much as the product you’ve just ordered.
