When I place an order with your company, I usually do it right from the newsletter in my e-mail, but I sometimes have trouble with it if I’m trying to order more than one thing. It’s hard to navigate back and forth between the two. Is there an easier way to do it? Please help!
I’m really glad you asked this, because I know you’re not the only one having this problem. All of us here at WorldStart get phone calls and e-mails all day long about this very thing. And after researching the problem a little bit, I can definitely see where you’re all coming from. We know that most of you get our newsletters right in your e-mail Inbox everyday and a lot of you place your orders from there. (If you don’t get them in your e-mail, chances are, you view them through our Newsletter Reader, which works pretty much the same way). So, if you’re having the same trouble as the person who asked today’s question, please read on!
I have three suggestions for you today that may make your ordering experience with WorldStart just a tad bit easier (I hope so anyway!) Two of them have to do with ordering straight from our newsletter and the other is an easy way you can do it on our actual Web site. Alright, let’s check them out!
1.) Here’s the first scenario: You just got your morning coffee, you log on to your computer, check your e-mail and the first one you open is WorldStart’s Computer Tips newsletter. You look through the whole thing and you see that two of our items look very interesting. You read through the advertisements for them one more time and you decide you better buy them before they’re gone. So, to place your order for the first one, you click on the item’s link and add it to your cart. But wait, what do you do about the second item? How can you get that onto the same order with the other one? Well, allow me to walk you through the process!
Let’s start from the very beginning. To order the first item, you click on its link and our shopping cart page opens. Next, click on the Add to Cart button. That page will show you the item you want, the quantity and the price. Now, to order the second item, click on the Continue Shopping button. That will take you to our Software Store page, but all you have to do is go back to our newsletter in your e-mail and find the other item you want to buy. Then just click on its link and hit the Add to Cart button again. That item will then be added along with the first one and your new total price will show up. If you’re done, you can then just click on the Checkout button to enter in your payment information. Or, if you want to continue shopping, just go back to the newsletter and add anything else you want to your cart. In the end, all of your items will be grouped together on the same order. Cool, huh?!
2.) If, for some reason, you don’t like the above method, you can try this one. First, go ahead and open our newsletter in your e-mail and just leave it there. Next, open up a browser window. When you do that, you will have two windows open: your e-mail window and a browser window. (If you get your e-mail through your Web browser, you’ll just need to have two browser windows open at the same time). In your browser, type in www.worldstart.com to go to our Web site. Once you’re there, click on the Software Store tab. You will then see all of our items for sale and the different categories you can choose from. Now, leave that page open and go back to your e-mail where you can see our newsletter.
Again, you want to purchase two of our items, so go ahead and click on the link for the first one and click on the Add to Cart button. Next, hit the Continue Shopping button. Now, instead of going back to your e-mail for the second item, you can just go to the top of that page and click on the Newsletters tab. On the next page, click on the first link you see for the Computer Tips newsletter. You can then scroll through that to find the next item you want to purchase. Then just click on its link and hit the Add to Cart button again. That will add the second item to your order and your new total price will show up. Again, if you want to continue shopping, you can do the exact same thing or if you’re done, just hit the Checkout button to enter in your payment information. It’s just a little faster way to order if you don’t want to go back and forth to your e-mail.
Or, to make it even easier, you can order straight through our Web site. You can look over the newsletter in your e-mail, but when you’re ready to order, just go to www.worldstart.com, click on the Newsletters tab and choose the first link for the Computer Tips newsletter. You will then see the same newsletter that’s in your e-mail and you can just do your shopping from there. There are always options!
3.) This last method is still easy, but I’m not sure how many of you will want to deal with it. I will still tell you about it though, because I promised I would! This one allows you to use our product ID numbers to place your order. In our newsletters, we include a link for every item we advertise. At the very end of that link, there is a number (it’s usually four digits) and that is the product ID.
It looks something like this: http://store.worldstart.com/product.php?productid=3943.
So, once you find the item you’d like to order, look for that ID number and either memorize it or write it down. Next, go to our Web site and click on the Software Store tab. You will then need to click on an item just so we can get this started. You can click on any item. Our Software Store page has several items right in the middle and you can click on any one of those to begin. Once that page opens, go up to the URL and find the product ID number. It may be mixed in with everything else or it may be at the very end. Either way, just erase those numbers and type in the one for the item you want to order. That product’s page will then open and you can click on the Add to Cart button to begin your order. You can then hit the Continue Shopping button and do the same thing again. Just do that until you have all the items you want in your cart. Lastly, just hit the Checkout button and you’ll be all set.
Whew! I know all of that is a little confusing, but I hope I explained it well enough. They’re just three different ways you can shop on our Web site. If you’re having trouble ordering, just read through these methods carefully and you should be able to get what you want. Our Web site really isn’t that hard to work with, you just have to know what to look for. Good luck and as always, thank you for ordering!
