More detail

Compile your order

Let your customers browse your WebShop, and then compile an order of products they wish to purchase. Here's more detail on the features that we support you and your customers to compile orders quickly and efficiently: 

Quick order

If your customers know the product codes of the products they wish to order, use our Quick Order feature which allows them to quickly compile an order and add all the listed products to the cart at the same time. Read our guide on how to use this feature.  

Spreadsheet import to Cart

Allow your customers to import products and quantities using a spreadsheet import feature. Supports ordering products and quantities using a spreadsheet.

Order lists

Allow your customers create order lists, a snapshot of their cart which they can use immediately and then re-use at a later time. Read our guide on how to use this feature.

Order history

Your customers can view and filter their previously placed orders. This list can be filtered by order status.

They can view all items in an order and re-order individual orders from the order details page.

Key points

  • For B2B customers, a history of all orders, including those not placed on Aphix products, is displayed.
  • For B2C customers, a history of orders placed on WebShop is displayed.

Recently ordered products

Your customers can access a list of recently-ordered products from your ERP in real-time. WebShop scans through your recent orders and extracts the top 30 products that have been ordered. These products are displayed as a list which is ranked by amount and date.

Favourites and favourites groups

As your customers browse your catalogue, they can click on 

 to mark that item as a Favourite. The item is added to an unassigned favourites group. Your customers can then organise their list of favourites into favourites groups. Favourites can be viewed in list and grid formats.

In list format, your customers can order products directly.

In grid format, your customers can open and manage their favourites groups, and order items from within the group page, as shown.

Within Aphix Management Interface, you ( as the merchant) can also create and manage favourites groups, which includes controlling what access your customers have to them.

Checkout

Your customer is ready to place their order, and that's where Aphix software comes into its own! Because it is integrated with your ERP, orders are placed into the sales order table in your ERP in real time. Here's more information about these features:
