By customizing your SAGE website, you can save time and money for your business by narrowing down product results to your desired supplier groups, shipping points, and currencies.


Solution:
 
To get started, log into www.sagemember.com. Next, click “E-Commerce” from the side menu.

Converting Pricing from USD to CAD:

In the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “Cart Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Pricing and Additional Charges” option. You can set your site currency to “Canadian Dollars” under “1. Site Currency”. Then in the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “PromoSearch Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Pricing” option.  You can convert your sites currency by selecting “Yes” under “10. Convert currencies?”. This way, when a potential customer clicks on an item priced by the supplier in USD, their pricing will automatically appear in Canadian Dollars. You can see that the pricing has been converted because “C” is shown before the dollar sign. Conversion rates used in SAGE are updated daily.

One thing to keep in mind is when you restrict your site to only Canadian suppliers, or search for products that ship from Canada, if the supplier has their products priced in CAD you will see the original Canadian pricing for each product, that hasn’t been converted from another currency.

If you would like to restrict your site to only catalogs priced in CAD in the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “PromoSearch Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Search Filters” option.  Under “2. Apply the following supplier-based search restrictions to all product searches”, check the “With catalogs priced in” box and choose “Canadian Dollars (CAD)” from the drop-down menu. 


Keep Your Ship Points in Canada:

In the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “PromoSearch Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Search Filters” option.  Under “1.  Apply the following product-based search restrictions to all product searches” section, check the “Ships from the following countries only” box and choose “Canada” from the drop-down menu. This allows your potential customer to view only products shipping from within Canada.


Utilizing Preference Groups:

In the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “PromoSearch Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Search Filters” option.  Under “2. Apply the following supplier-based search restrictions to all product searches”, check the “Suppliers in the following preference groups only” box and check which preference groups you’d like to show on your site. 

To create preference groups log into SAGE Online. Next, click “Tools” in the top toolbar and select “Options” from the drop-down list and click the “Preference Groups” option.  Here you can create an unlimited number of preference groups to narrow down your product search fields. To do so, click “Add New Preference Group,” fill in your group information, and tag it with a unique color.

To add a supplier to a specific preference group, you simply need to pull up their supplier profile page, either through a supplier search or a product search, and click the “My Supplier Info” tab. In the Preference Group drop-down menu, check the box next to the group you want to add them to.

Then, when browsing for products, you can apply preference groups to your supplier search criteria by clicking on “Selected Groups” and including or excluding a specific group.


Keep Your Suppliers in Canada or NAFTA Proficient:

In the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “PromoSearch Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Search Filters” option.  Under “2. Apply the following supplier-based search restrictions to all product searches”, check the “Located in” box and choose “Canadian Only” from the drop-down menu. 

To narrow down results by suppliers who are NAFTA proficient also check the “or if NAFTA friendly” box next to “Located in”.


Show Canadian Postal Rates:

In the “E-Commerce” menu, click the “Cart Settings” from the drop-down menu and then select the “Shipping Methods” option. Here you can check the “Canada Post” box to see the Canada Post service rates under “2.  Standard Shipping Methods”, along with FedEx, UPS, and USPS when estimating your product shipment costs.
