One of the things I’ve been busy with lately is a totally revamped checkout process over at everyone’s favorite cartoon website.
The old system certainly worked fine, but there were lots of little improvements to be made to make the process easier and clearer, (BTW, I’d compare screenshots of old vs. new, but my programmer actually got things done so quickly I didn’t have time to get any of the old system. Hard to complain.)
OK, so here’s the cartoon itself:
After clicking the GIANT RED ADD TO CART BUTTON (still one of my favorite Photoshop projects) you go here:
MUCH clearer than the old cart page. And a BIG GREEN CHECK OUT NOW BUTTON now instead of the little gray one I used to use.
Above is probably the biggest change. At log in you now have the option of not creating an account at all. Yep, directly to the right of the log in button, there’s a link to “continue without an account.”
I mean, let’s face it, the majority of folks coming to the site are most likely buying one or two cartoons for a powerpoint and their out of there. Why annoy them with a whole account creation process?!
More big text and another big green button. There’s no missing them anymore.
And you’re done! Hooray!
I’m very proud to announce probably the biggest and best feature Andertoons.com has yet seen; e-commerce!
Now you can browse and buy cartoons for the most popular uses (presentations and newsletters) with just a few clicks.
Next to all large cartoon images there is now a button to “Buy This Cartoon.” (It’s located on the lower right of the home page’s daily cartoon).
Just one click, and after that it works like most other online shopping you’ve experienced: addition to a cart, account sign-in, secure credit card processing, etc…
Once the cartoon has been purchased, you’ll receive an email with immediate download instructions, and you’re good to go.
No emails back and forth, no waiting for cartoons to arrive. Just browse, buy, and get on with your day.
I’m also pleased to announce that within hours of launch, we’ve already begun processing orders. The very first order was this cartoon for a presentation.
I think you’ll find the pricing competitive and the buying experience a breeze.
So, shop and enjoy! And stay tuned for more exciting new features coming soon.
