Our latest release features some key improvements requested by brands to help retailers place order shipped to an alternate address and add more control for brands needing more complex color swatches for products.
Retailers can now ship to a secondary address (Drop Ship)
- Ship your purchases to different warehouse or directly to stores by using our secondary address tool and drop ship selection; this can help reduce your shipping fees and give you more flexibility.
- Brands can offer drop shipping to retailers by enabling the function and setting up their carrier of choice to offer drop shipping with our shipping module.
- When this feature is enabled all retailers will have the ability to enter a different shipping address than the company address on file.
- All communications about the order will display the secondary shipping address and indicate it is considered Drop Ship
- Connect a shipping carrier using our shipping module, if you’re not currently using our shipping module reach out to email@example.com or your Client Success Manager.
- You can associate that carrier to appear as your “drop ship” carrier.
- You can only have one carrier associated to drop ship.
- Update (April 2021): You can now offer buyers multiple carriers to choose from with drop shipping.
- Set your min and max thresholds for what qualifies as drop ship and you’re all set.
More Sophisticated Color Swatch Control
Brands that need a more sophisticated presentation of color swatches in product detail pages can take advantage of two new preferences. Oftentimes luxury brands where prebook is predominant may not have all standard product images in every color to display and may only have color swatch images. We have enabled a preference for brands to show color swatch images in place of the hero image in the Available Colors carousel.
Available Colors carousel for grouped products showing default Hero image for grouped products
Available Colors carousel for grouped products when preference for Color Swatch images is enabled
Brands can also choose to change the label that appears beneath the Color Swatch image. This preference is useful for brands that wish to have more complex color name where instead of a simple color name, a more descriptive label such as color + fabrication or color code is desired. Brands can choose to create a new product data field and map the color swatch label to the newly created field.
Control Your Full-size Image Downloads
Brands concerned with retailers downloading full-size product images can take advantage of a new preference that will remove the download link from the full-size product image view. The preference will also remove the ability to right-click and “save image as”.
Full size product image view when clicking on the Zoom icon from a product or clicking the main image in a product detail page. Note the download icon which typically appears next to the zoom controls has been removed.
To have any of these preferences enabled, please reach out to our NuORDER heroes.
