MobileCart / Shopping Cart

Home Documentation App Features MobileCart / Shopping Cart

MobileCart is our advanced eCommerce (Shopping Cart) feature. Similar to our mCommerce feature, you will be able to sell your products from one or several points of sale. Users will be able to pay for your products/services via PayPal, Stripe, credit card, or pay at your point of sale or when they are delivered.  However, our MobileCart feature contains many additional functions. This includes the ability to add notes and labels to products, advanced layout features, comprehensive reports, and much, much more!

See the instructions below for setting up MobileCart.

 

1. Create Your Initial Store

After adding the Commerce feature to your app, click on  to add a point of sale:

 

Then fill out with your store info:

 

 

Next add your Delivery Options:

In Store – The customer will pay for and obtain the product/service while in the store.

Carry Out – The customer will pick-up the items from your business.

Delivery – You will have the items delivered.

Fixed Method – You can add custom delivery options.  For example, you may want to add a “Rush Delivery” option.

 

DELIVERY OPTIONS:

Delivery Fees – The amount to charge the customer for the delivery.

Free delivery starting from – Minimum order total to qualify for free delivery.

The clients calculate the change – Add a field at the end of the order where the client will specify the type of cash he will use. For example, if he uses a 50$ bill, you will be notified.

Delivery radius – The delivery radius from the store’s address.

Delivery time – Time to deliver.  List the amount in hours.  For example, “36” would equal 3 days.  In the app, the amount of “Days” will be displayed if it’s over 24 hours.

Minimum order – The minimum amount in the customer’s shopping cart for the delivery fee to apply.

Fixed Method – You can add custom delivery fees.  For example, you can have an “Expedited” delivery service and list the amount for that option.

 

2) Add Payment Options

Select the Payment Options that you would like your customers to be able to use.

 

If you choose PayPal, you will have to complete the PayPal fields that will appear upon selecting this option. The PayPal option would also enable the ability to accept Credit/Debit card payments in the app. Click here to see how you have to set up your PayPal account to enable it in your app.

The Credit card (pay upon pickup or delivery) option will enable your customers to pay by credit card when they pick up their order, or upon delivery of their order.

Stripe is another credit/debit card payment option within the app. Upon selecting this option, you will have to complete the “Secret Key” and “Publishable key” options that appear. Click here for instructions on how to setup the Stripe option.

 

3) Create Categories For Your Products

Then go in Catalog and click on Categories:

 

 

Click on the blue + to add your Categories. A first one is automatically created but won’t be shown to users. It’s your root category but once again it will not be shown to users so you can leave it like that. Select it and click on the blue + to add a subcategory (the root Category is not shown, the new Category will be a main category).

 

When adding a Category, add a Title for the Category, and click the icon next to the Category Title to add a Category Image.  The image size should be 960×600 in size.

 

 

4) Create Products

Click on Products from the main menu in the Catalog tab.

Click on the blue  + to add a product.

 

Complete the required fields (Product Name, and Price) and add as many photos as you wish.  It’s highly recommended that you also add a Description for each Product.

 

You can sizes or another appropriate Format to your Product. Switch on Product Formats and then add sizes (or appropriate info) of your product.  Add a Price for each Format.

Note that if you activate this function, you won’t be able to change the price of your product in the main menu as you previously set. The price displayed in the app will be displayed from the lowest Format Price to the highest.

 

 

You can also add some Options to a Product. An example would be Sauces for a restaurant’s menu product.

Here is an example using sauces.

First, create a new Options Group:

 

 

If you check at least one option is required. The app user will have to choose from the sauces you offer when he orders the product. He will not be able to order without choosing one of these options (that’s useful when you have many sizes for a product, as we will see next).

Then, in the “Add it options” section, click on “+” to add options to this group of options:

Click on “OK” to save.

Now, in your product details page you can see your options below.

 

 

Then check the categories for your product:

 

 

And click on “OK” to save your product.

You can also duplicate a product if you want to create a new product that doesn’t have many differences from another one.

 

 

If you have many products in the feature, it can be difficult to scroll to find the one you are looking for. That’s why we implemented a search bar, where you can type its name and find it easily.

 

5) Manage

In the “Orders” menu, you will be able to see and manage the orders you receive.

In the “Settings” menu, you will able to manage the fields required during the order. You can either choose to make a field mandatory, hidden, or simply hide it from the form. Below is a sample configuration:

 

 

And let’s see the result inside the app when ordering:

 

 

If the user has already created an account in the app and is logged in, some information will automatically be retrieved by the shopping cart feature to fill parts of the form, as you can see in the example above.

You will also be able to link, for each store, a connected printer to your app to print orders when they arrive, and also to manage your tax rates if you have several:

 

 

 

 

 

6) Important Notice

When utilizing the MobileCart feature, you will also have a hidden Catalog feature added to your app.  Do NOT delete/remove the Catalog feature from your app.  This is a vital component to the Shopping Cart.  The Catalog feature is hidden from your App Users but you the App Admin can see it while inside of your App Manager.

 

7) Easily Manage Your Orders, Products, and Categories

After the initial setup of your Shopping Cart is complete, you can easily manage your Orders, Products, and Categories by selecting Modules from the left-hand-side menu in your App Manager.  Next, select Mobile cart admin panel.
