Add Google Maps to Checkout

Local customers will be amazed by the level or service when they can receive their order even when they’re taking part in a holiday parade or skateboarding.
Of course, this feature works best for stores with a courier delivery.
Adding Google Maps to the checkout page of our website is a great relief
to locating our numerous customers spread across the country. It has eradicated our previous challenge of locating our customers in time. The feature gives us the exact coordinates of where the customers are or want the items to be delivered to, and all we need to do is put the coordinates into Google Maps and ask for directions… Doesn’t that sound easy? — Ransford Parker, CEO of Fonola Mall.
Add the Repeat Order Button
Let’s face it: saying I’ll have the usual in your favorite place makes you feel exclusive. Allow your loyal customers to enjoy the same feeling online, while ordering more in one click. With the Repeat Order button, purchasing another similar set of products is easy. This small button can save your customers tons of extra clicks that they’d have to do if they created each order from scratch.

Set Minimum Quantity Limits for Cheap Products
If you sell inexpensive and small products that people can buy in bulk (for example, crayons), you probably don’t want to pay for shipping a single product overseas.
You can bundle your products in sets (for example, selling a box of crayons). But it’s hard to guess the right size of that box. It can be too much for one customer, and not enough for another. As a result, some of them will bounce.
There’s a more elegant solution to this problem: set up the minimum quantity limit to the profitable amount. Say, you start getting real profits when you sell at least five crayons at a time. Set the minimum quantity to five, and your customers won’t be able to complete the order if they have put fewer items in the cart. But if they want more, nothing will stand in their way!
When we needed a customization to set minimum quantities per product, Sergio at Ecwid’s Customization Department was there throughout the entire process. It only took a few days for the customization to be developed and it was exactly what we asked for. Ecwid’s Customization Department rocks! — Ryan Kelsey, Owner, Valley Farms Hatchery.
