Online Storefront

Last Updated: Oct 10, 2017 11:19AM CDT
If your package includes the online storefront, Point of Rental is already hosting a storefront for you on the web where customers can request quotes and even pay for reservations.

There are a lot of settings and controls over this online storefront and they can be found in the Admin section.  From the Admin Menu, click Configuration and choose Front End Configuration. 
Here you can changes the settings around Facebook and Google integrations from the Advanced Mode.

You can control what your customers are allowed to do and control if they see availability and if they can overbook, etc.  
If you are not collecting credit cards payments and are not credit card integrated, you can also check the box to allow weak passwords.  

If you do accept credit cards are set up to be able to collect credit card payments within Essentials, then you can specify how much money the customer pays to hold their reservation.  This can either be as a specific amount of money or a percentage of the whole reservation.

If you have inventory items that have individual deposits (please see our Adding New Inventory help document to see where to include these deposits), you can also specify how much of the deposit is due at the time of the reservation when a customer reserves online.

*NOTE: You will only get the questions about credit cards and payment if you have a credit card processor integrated into your site.  Otherwise, they will be grayed out.  We have preferred credit card processors.  Please Click Here to learn more on what processors we prefer along with how to get you started.

If you have or could possibly have coupon codes for discounts and they're set up, you can choose to allow the customer to add these on the storefront.  (*Please see our Coupons document on how to set those up.)
If you want to integrate your Essentials shopping cart into your existing website, you will find instructions on the right hand side of the screen.  There are instructions if you have a custom site and also a place to download our WordPress plugin.

Don't have the Online Storefront?  No worries.  You can very easily add this feature by clicking on your username at the top right of your Essentials account.  Choose Manage My Account and click Manage/Change next to Package Details.  Now, you will see a list of add on features you can add to your current features and pricing.  Want more details or assistance with adding this feature or with pricing?  Click Here to reach out to our sales team and someone will be glad to assist you with pricing.
