Create an unlimited number of order custom fields. Collect supplemental, required or non-required responses from
customers at checkout. You can include as many addendum type checkout
questions in your form as you want. You can assign fixed
or percentage of subtotal fees or discounts to any of the questions and
optionally restrict their application to a specific response.
You can even create multiple custom fields for donations which allow
the customer to enter the amount they want to contribute during checkout.
Display responses in the email, invoice screen, order edit screen, picklist screen and batch reports.
If customers have an account, the order custom
fields can be synchronized with
customer custom fields so that specified checkout responses
can be saved with the customer's account and not deleted
if/when the normal order data is deleted.
In admin, store owners can use the order custom fields to
maintain notes about an order and enter shipping
status/tracking numbers so that
customers can keep informed about their order status.
Enter updates from the individual order
edit screen or use the built-in flat file or xml file
import feature for bulk updates. An
optional order status update email can be sent from the
order edit screen or the bulk import. You can specify
which order custom fields can be viewed
by the customer. Customers do not need to create an
account, but can still check their order status on a page
The search tool allows you to search orders for specific
time periods and for a specific term in several of the order
standard fields and all of the order custom fields. For example
you can identify all orders which donated to a specific
charity between Jan 1 - 31, 2010. Or you can search all
orders which contain the product code widget. You can
even export the bill to email address from the results to
a flat file. So if you wanted to thank contributors to a
charity or notify customers about a recall, the address list
will make that task much easier.

We license the Emporium Plus modules by domain/mall. Hence, if you have 10 stores under
a single mall (merchant.mvc), our modules can be used under the single domain license. No
need to purchase multiple licenses for each of your stores under a single domain/mall.
Each store will get their own unique order custom fields module license key which will be available
by virtue of the domain license. The license is for one domain/mall and cannot be sold,
transferred, or re-distributed. If you have another store in a different domain, that would
require another license.
Compare this module with our competitors' pro or advanced or ultimate versions. Those are just words tacked onto a module name. Don't let our low price fool you - compare features and you will find this module probably contains all of the order custom fields features you need. If you don't see a feature you need related to order custom fields, let us know, we may add it. Replace other checkout question and order status modules with this easy to use single module.
See the module's slide show (link above) for several screen shots which show various features of the module.
