In this article, we will show you how to configure the Magento Quick Order function to enhance the B2B shopping experience in your store.
Customers love the convenience and fast. And that’s what eCommerce shopping can bring to them.
With online shopping, customers can easily search, and purchase products they want without going to a brick-and-mortar store and waiting in line for the checkout.
However, if you own an online store on the Magento platform, you should know that in default Magento, it is not convenient for customers to add a large number of products to the shopping cart. It takes them a lot of time and effort.
Meanwhile, it is crucial to get customers through the ordering process as fast as possible. Especially if your store is focused on B2B customers.
That’s why you need the Magento quick order function to fasten the order processing and enhance the shopping experience in your store.
But how to configure this function? Please read the content below to find out!
What Is Magento Quick Order?
Normally, to order several products, customers have to visit several product pages before reaching the end of the order process. It annoys your customers, especially when they are buying in bulk.
B2B businesses deeply understand this issue, and quick order is their top solution for it.
Magento Quick Order feature allows customers to finish the order process with just several clicks without navigating to different product pages.
There are 3 major benefits of Magento Quick Order:
- Enhance bulk ordering: This function allows customers to order rapidly through a quick order form.
- Reduce abandonment rate: Lower cart abandonment rates by speeding up the ordering process.
- Encourage repeat sales: Time is essential in winning customers’ hearts, so providing a simplified shopping experience will make customers want to return and repeat their orders.
How Can BSS Magento 2 Quick Order Helps Fasten The Purchasing Process
INSTALL NOW BSS Magento Quick Order – the best solution to fasten the ordering process!
Magento Quick Order speeds up the ordering process by allowing your customers to add products to their cart quickly and easily in 2 ways:
- Entering products’ names or SKUs
- Uploading CSV file
- Mini fast order
Entering products’ names or SKUs
In the quick order form, customers can search for products by their name or SKUs. Then they can easily change the quantity of each product in the form and then click the Add to Cart button to add all to the cart or click the Proceed to Checkout button to go straight to the checkout process.
This supports AJAX and Elasticsearch, which help quickly filter what customers are searching and give auto-suggestions. In case there is only one result matched, it will auto-select, too.
Customers can also enter multiple SKUs and quantities to order even faster.
If your customers choose products with custom options, a popup will be shown so they can quickly select options without browsing product pages.
In case they search for multiple products with custom options, the popup will display the next and previous buttons, so they go back and forth and choose.
Uploading CSV file
B2B customers usually prepare a sheet including product names, SKUs, quantity, etc., they want to order.
This module allows them to make use of that form to order faster.
It enables your customers to download the sample CSV file so they can input the SKU and quantity. Then they just need to upload that CSV file to the quick order form.
Mini fast order
This extension also offers the mini fast order feature.
Customers can click on the Fast Order button on the top right of the website, and the mini order form will appear.
In that mini fast order form, they can add multiple products to order by entering products’ names or SKUs and quantities.
That way, they can order even faster without redirecting to the quick order page.
