Hi,

I have a couple of question regarding an online store function.

I am going to build an online store for my business however I am in the textile business and at the moment selling the material ( cloth) to my customer in a variety of length. my question is does the Yola online function support customer input in decimal place when customer add the goods in their cart. Example I would need my customer to enter 1.2 Meters or 1.2 Yards for Item 1 and example 1.5 meters of item 2. The system then calculate the price of the item 1 and item 2 base on the length * price of each item
does Yola support this ?

Q2. Since the length and weight of each item varies, does Yola support a weight calculation and show the shipping fee to the customer according to weight ?

Q3. Does Yola support multiple way of payment where customer can select ? both offline payment such as Bank transfer and other online Payment ?

Thank You very much for your support

Hello trihep G.

Thank you for your detailed questions on Yola Online Store.

ad Q1: There is no option to let buyers enter a value specific to the product they want to buy. However, you can provide the buyer with product options displayed with the product viewed, so you could display a list of textile measurements from which the buyer will be able to select and see a certain price for the selected measurement. You can define different prices for certain measurements which you add as product options.

ad Q2: Yes, Yola Online Stores offers to set the shipping costs according to product weight.

ad Q3: Yes, Yola Online Store offers both online and offline payment methods. Here's a list of the supported online payment gateways.

Hi Stefan,

Thank You for your Answer. I have some further question regarding the options that I provide to the customer.

Q1 is there a limit to the option I can give ?
Example I wish to prive my customer with an option from 1 meters to maximum 100 meters ?

Q2 How many options I can give to my customer ?

Q3 Can the two option be use together ? Example if I provide my cuatomer with 2 list of options .First in meter running from 1 to 100 and I set the price of the first meter as 3 US 2 meter as 6 US and so on and the 2nd as a centimeter option running from 10 cm to 90 cm with a price runing from 0.3 per 10 cm
This would solve my problem as customer can choose 1 M and 10 cm or 1 meter and 30 cm up to their need. Is this option available ?

If I can give two options with an unlimited list It would solve my problem.

Thank you for your support.

Hello trihep G.

I need to slightly correct myself: So you can have your buyers enter a custom word/number or text into a field you provide as an option, however, the value entered will not change the price. I presume you need the price to be altered when people choose more meters.

So I'd suggest that you go for the drop down menu option in order to not cause your page to become lengthy when offering a large number of options.

ad Q1: There is basically no limit to the amount of one product option. When adding values from 1 to 100, you should be fine. My advice is to use the drop down menu option as opposed to displaying all options in a radio button list which would extend your product page too much downwards.

ad Q2: You can also add an unlimited amount of different options per product.

ad Q3: Yes, as the options all display with your product, they will be combined.

So the happy news is that the answer to all your question is yes! I hope this sounds good to you and that we'll be able to welcome you to Yola Online Store soon.
