Introducing Smart eCart and the Smart Offers Theme
Our Most Flexible Product Yet
One of the key features of Smart eCart is that it allows for multiple offer types to be displayed side-by-side. Offer types at launch are deals, products, downloads, and projects. Each of these offer types allow for expiration dates, minimum and maximum purchase limits, tax and shipping options, and all the meta data you’ve come to expect from our products. Deals are traditional group buying offers and provide the purchasers with a voucher for redemption at a physical location. Products are designed for selling physical products, generally shipped directly. Downloads provide the purchasers with a link to a download. Projects are traditional crowd funding offers and have their purchase limits based on total dollar amounts, rather than total number of purchases.
Smart eCart also includes a new feature called “Activity”. Activity provides a chart of live sales stats across time right on the offer edit screen, as well as direct links to detailed purchase and voucher reports. The main activity page provides graphs and reports for sales, account, and voucher activity across time. This is also where you’ll be able to manage accounts, orders, payments, and vouchers.
Along with the new Activity section, there are other admin improvements, including tabbed settings pages, theme options moved to the other WordPress theme settings and cross-linked sections so admin pages are easier to find.
There are also new filters for developers, making SeC customization even easier and opening up offer types to older themes.
The New Smart Offers Theme
Our new default theme takes full advantage of Smart eCart’s offer types, using dynamic templates to provide your customers with the exact information they need for each offer.
Offers include a tabbed layout, giving potential customers all the information they need right at the top of the page. There is also a list of buyers/funders and a mini-blog so the offer merchant can provide updates on the offer.
Like all our themes, the Smart Offers Theme integrates with WordPress’ Customizer, allowing you to adjust your site’s fonts and colors with a live preview. Other standard features include thumbnail resizing, login with Facebook, our translator tool – enabling you to replace any system generated text right from your WordPress dashboard, subscription integration with MailChimp and Constant Contact, and of course, it’s child theme ready. That means it can be fully customized without breaking your upgrade path.
