How to Turn Off the Shopping Cart on a Website

 The e-commerce capability that DC offers is a great option but some people would rather not offer it to their customers. You do have the option to turn off the shopping cart on a website in DC.

The “Order Now” verbage can also be changed if you would rather the button say something more general. Some Distributors choose to say “Get Quote Now” or “Request Quote” (or any other text you would prefer to “Order Now”). Learn how in the second set of instructions below.

If you would prefer to completely turn off your shopping cart, see these instructions:

This is a preference that is set in your “Website Preferences” area.

1. Go to Websites Menu> Add/Edit Websites

2. Under “Websites List“, find your website and click on “Preferences” to the right.

3. Now click on “Orders” section on the left. You will see a question: “Display Order Button on your Website?”

4. Set the question above to “No” and Save at the top right

5. Now click on “Published” link at top center and then click on “Publish New Changes

Now your customers will be able to research and find products but they will not be able to send an order from your DC website.

If you would prefer to change your Order button verbage, see these instructions:

This is also a preference that is set in your “Website Preferences” area.

1. Go to Websites Menu> Add/Edit Websites

2. Under “Websites List“, find your website and click on “Preferences” to the right.

3. Now click on “Orders” section on the left. You will see a question: “What text should appear on your order button?”

4. Change the text in that box to match the text you would like the customer to see for the order button and Save at the top right.

5. Now click on “Published” link at top center and then click on “Publish New Changes

Once your site has been published, you should see your order button change for your website to the verbage you added to your website preference area.
