Embedding Customer Online Storefront

Last Updated: May 23, 2018 04:42PM CDT
Are the phones ringing like crazy from customers calling to make reservations?  Do you wish there was an easier way for customers to go online and make their own reservations?  With the Essentials Customer Online Storefront and your company website, Essentials can help make this possible.

When you have the Essentials Customer Online Storefront add on feature, Essentials creates a URL for your storefront.  You will see this either on your Dashboard at the top or towards the top of the screen under the Front End Configuration menu.  

Whoever hosts your company website will take this URL and embed the Essentials storefront into the right location on your company website using the WordPress Plug In option.  They will follow the instructions provided when they click Instructions for WordPress under Admin-Configuration-Front End Configuration.

Don't want to use our WordPress Plug In feature?  No worries.  We also have general instructions for external site you can follow.  Once you click this button, the requirements will show up. 

Once you have read the requirements, click the I understand, show me the instructions button.  General code will come up in which you will enter into the correct section of your website.
Do you want the colors of the Customer Online Storefront to be the same as your website?  You can change the colors under Admin-Configuration-Themes.  From here, when you're adding a new theme and selecting your colors, you can click on the Advance Mode and enter your own custom CSS.

Once the Theme is created and saved, you want to go back to Front End Configurations and select the theme from the drop down menu located right below the Instructions for Embedding Front End.

Now that you have your themes created and your Essentials Customer Online Storefront embedded into your company website, you're set to have the ability for your customer to reserve online.  

Don't have our Customer Online Storefront add on feature?  No worries.  Just go to Manage My Account-Manage/Change and add this feature to your current plan.
