We just started putting a real order confirmation page on our website. It is really simple and easy too. You can get an email from us with the link to our website and a link to confirm your order.
We’ve been telling you how easy and convenient this is, but you have to wonder how many orders we’re probably receiving today because of this new feature.
We may have sent out a few emails this morning but we’ve been putting a large number of orders together and sending them right to your inbox. We don’t want to overwhelm you, but we do want you to be confident and aware that you can get an order confirmed without having to wait for an email.
If you’re not sure if you have an order to ship, you can always check by clicking on the order confirmation link on the order page. This will take you to a page with a list of all the orders being shipped, or you can just click the order button at the top of your order page to see your order status.
When you order, you can see your order status right away. It will be green, since your order is being shipped. It will also show you the estimated date the order will be shipped. If the order is cancelled, the status will still be green, but the status will also show a “cancelled” message and the estimated date of when the order will be shipped will be greyed out.
Your order will also show when it will be delivered. This can be shown as soon as you enter your email address, or as soon as the order status changes. When it is delivered, your status screen will show you the estimated date the order will be shipped.
One thing I found interesting about the order confirmation page was that the status is shown to you as soon as you enter your email address. One reason why I’m not sure if my orders really do arrive in time for me to pick them up is that the system I have set up to manage my orders is not updating as my items arrive either.
The order confirmation page could be easily implemented if Im not getting my orders in time for them to arrive. The system I have set up though is working, and is only updated when an item has arrived. I have no idea if that is always going to be the case, but it works, so that is good.
I could not get the same issues with my orders. I have not received my orders from Im yet, but I will soon.
I really hope the Order confirmation page works again, because the first time I tried it I was pretty upset about it. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
