SmartEtailing News

Read the latest updates from all the teams and departments at SmartEtailing. Each month our team is working tirelessly to get your website and tools working as efficiently for you as possible. 

Development Updates

Auto-suggestion search 

When a consumer uses the search tool on your site they will now get potential results as they type. This is predictive search and it should make it easier to get to what they hoped to find. At any point they can click to get to a list of search results. A "No results found" page appears when a site search returns no items from our search engine. It displays a user friendly message, a list of recently viewed items and 'featured items'. Try it out on your own site - type anything to see how products show up. Learn more here!

Shopping links added to page not found 

If your site contains a link to a page that is no longer active, or a customer clicks a link in an old email that no longer exists, they will now get a better result.  Instead of a simple "Page Not Found" message, your customers will see a friendlier message, and a list of items they might like instead. 

Prioritized brand list sorting 

We want to help you sell the brands and products you support so we’ve updated how brands display on catalog list view pages. When a consumer visits a catalog page they will see a list of six brands in the filters section on the left, sorted by the quantity of products that you have available. Expanding to view the full list leaves the original list of most popular brands at the top of the list, while the remaining brands are displayed in alphabetical order. Read the full update here.

Improved order confirmation emails

Are you selling online? Then you've probably already seen the new order confirmation emails. You and your customers now get an email with a picture of the ordered item, a link to the item in your catalog, and an all-around modern look to the email. Stay tuned for even more updates for order management over the coming months! Read this blog post for a full update!
