What happens when you can’t sell your product online because you need to talk to the client first before you create your custom item? Or you live in a country that is dominated by a cash economy so online payments don’t make sense to reach all of your clients? Use ShopTab’s Facebook Store Cash on Demand (COD) feature inside of your Facebook Fan Page!
This solution is perfect for these retailers:
- You are located in a cash based economy
- You have products that your social networks wants but they are custom
- You want to deliver COD with an online payment option like PayPal
- You have an e-commerce option but COD provides access to new clients
Note: While COD may be your preferred method of sale in your Facebook store, you can mix in either PayPal checkout or e-commerce purchase options too.
STEP 1: Set up for Cash on Delivery.
A) Log into ShopTab's admin, complete the integration with your Facebook page, and then select Settings, Buyer Checkout Options and then select the Integrated Cart option.
Determine your basic cart features such as if you want to use inventory controls and if some of your products need the ability to the buyer to include some text feedback.
Note: If you activate inventory, the items will be deducted immediately upon a COD checkout. Any orders that aren't completed will require you to update the inventory numbers in the product listing.
Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and activate your Cash on Delivery option.
Once this is set, create the form you desire to use to set up the checkout process.
You can designate the fields you need (three are required as fields and for valid buyer input). You may change the names of all fields.
And then set the text for the buttons that will appear in the cart and during the ordering process and on the buyer confirmation screen.
You always have access to any sales data via the Review COD Sales button.
Once on the page you will see the summary of your sales and a button that allows you to download all of your orders - "Download the CSV."
Below is an example of how the checkout cart will appear to your buyers.
Upon completion of an order, you will receive an email notification from ShopTab with complete details. The buyer will see a confirmation screen indicating you will be contacting them to finalize the delivery and transaction.
Note: COD will work with the Shipping tab found under "Settings."
