Hello pencil people!
While we've been sequestered in the office, I've added some new features to cwpencils.com that will hopefully make your pencil shopping even easier! Read on for instructions, and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Customer Accounts - Keep track of your past orders, shipping address and other information with a customer account. Click the "Account" button on the top right of the website (next to search) to get started. If you create your account with an email address that you've already used to make purchases from cwpencils.com, you account will automatically populate with past orders, so you can keep track of your purchases. You'll also be able to manage your Pencil Box subscription from your customer account. Don't worry - you do not need to create an account to check out on CWPE, it's totally optional.
Gift Wrapping - Indicating that an order is a gift is now easier than ever! Simply check the box next to "For $0.00 please wrap the products in this order," and indicate whatever gift message you'd like to include. We'll wrap your purchase in classic CWPE yellow.
Product Reviews - Love an item in your CWPE purchase? Let us (and everyone else!) know exactly what you thought of it. Visit the product you'd like to review on our website and click "Write a review to get started" - no account necessary. (Okay, in all fairness, we rolled this update out a couple months ago, but we are tickled every time a new review comes through. We can't get enough! )
"Sort By" - From any collection page, you can now sort products alphabetically, or by price, popularity or newest to oldest.
Shopify Pay - Shopify has rolled out a new payment feature that allows faster checkout on any Shopify store. During checkout, right before you hit "Complete Order," there's a checkbox marked "Remember Me - Save my information for faster checkout." If you opt into this feature, the next time you checkout on any Shopify store that supports Shopify Pay, you'll receive a code via SMS that will automatically import your payment info. Read all about it here.*
WISHLISTS! I'm so excited about this new feature! You can now keep track of items you wish to snag from CWPE on as many wishlists as you'd like. Just click "Add to wishlist" next to any product you'd like to save. For example, You don't need to create a customer account right away to make a wishlist - it will be stored via cookies in your browser for up to 90 days. If you'd like to hang on to your wishlists for longer than that, or view them across multiple devices, you'll need to sign up for a customer account.
If you need help with any of these new features, please let us know!
*Note that Shopify Pay is not the same as a customer account - Shopify Pay stores your payment info for faster checkout on any supported store, while a customer account stores your info, including past orders, for checkout on just cwpencils.com.
