Have you seen the new look of Sailrite.com? If you’ve visited our website in the past week you will have noticed some big changes and if you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to go take a look around! We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes developing this new website experience for all of you and today we wanted to point out a few of the new, helpful features of the site that we think you’re really going to like.
We’ve made several improvements that will help the way you peruse and shop around on the site. First, our new site runs faster than ever before and is now mobile-friendly, making it easier to shop from anywhere on your phone or tablet. Additionally larger images on product pages help you really see the products before you buy!
For those who like to browse around, we now have 3 different viewing styles on our category and search pages. You can view products in 4 columns, in a 2 x 2 grid, or in a list. Each view offers different perks for different shopping personalities. For example, the list view allows you to shop quickly by adding products to your cart directly from the search and category pages.
Another addition that makes ordering quicker and browsing easier is our Quick View feature. This lets you see more images of an item, provides a little more information and lets you add the item to your cart all while keeping your place on the category or search page.
Our new website offers two features that will help you keep track of materials lists, items that catch your eye or splurges you’re saving for next time; Wishlist and Save for Later. Our Wishlist lets you save products you’re interested in and sort them into multiple wish lists and even prioritize among your items. And if you’re ready to purchase, you can add an entire list to your shopping cart with just the click of a button.
The ‘Save for Later’ feature is great for sorting through items in your shopping cart. If when looking through your cart you decide you’d rather wait on an item or two but don’t want to forget them, you now have the option to ‘Save for Later.’ We’ll store those items in a separate section of your shopping cart until your ready for them.
We always strive to provide you, our customers, with all the information you need to make informed purchases so you are confident that with each order you have the right materials for your project. To continue to increase that confidence level, our website now includes product reviews and transparent inventory so you know what we have in stock. We’ve also brought back a feature that we know many of you have been wanting, a shipping estimator in the shopping cart. You can now get shipping estimates on your order before starting the checkout process.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to Sailrite.com, take a look around and let us know what you think of the new design and features!
