Customize your pre-order form excellently
We already present a great pre-order form to our users, but it is not it. Everyone must reflect their branding, style, and corporate taste in a sales order form. You can accept product pre-orders using a sample form that is designed in any way, but having your own design will surely improve your sales. Here are some great tips on what to do:
Add photos to your products or services
With the product basket form field of forms.app, you can insert up to 3 different photos for each product or service that you list. You can always delete them and add new ones later. This will help the customers to see the products easily before buying, and it may boost your sales.
Insert your branding elements, such as logo and contact information
It is possible to upload your own background image, so it is also possible to insert your logo into the background of your form. Not only the background but also the Welcome and Thank you pages will help you to attract your customers.
Design your form advertently
A professional design will attract more customers than a basic form. For this, forms.app presents you with every possible design customization option on the “Design” tab. From choosing one of the ready-made templates to creating your own theme by adjusting each form element’s color individually, you can completely reflect your own design into your forms.
Benefit from product basket as much as possible
Product basket is a unique form field, and it allows you to list your products with prices without needing to deal with complicated calculations or else. Some of the product basket’s most advanced features are as follows:
- Optioning a product or service (e.g., inserting color or size options for a t-shirt)
- Pricing each option individually and having a price range on a product/service that has different options and pricing
- Basic stock management and capability to choose what will happen when you run out of stocks (hide, disable, continue receiving orders)
- Categorization of products
Offer more than one payment option
Payment options are crucially important when creating online order forms. In order not to deal with cash on delivery processes, you can offer your customers options to pay online with their credit/debit cards or even with their Stripe and PayPal accounts!
forms.app integrates with the world’s best two online payment processors, Stripe and PayPal, allowing you to accept payments for the products you sell using forms.app. You just need to add a Payment form field, connect your Stripe or PayPal account, and get started with collecting secure online payments!
