Hiding prices in PrintCentre

Click to Watch Video

For some business-to-business webshops, it may not be necessary, or desirable, for the end-user to see pricing in the webshop. For these cases, XMF PrintCentre allows the site administrator to remove pricing from the shop altogether, whilst keeping it visible to selected users.

When set to hidden, users do not see prices for products, during the checkout process, in their order history or on email confirmations. For those who wish to interact with pricing (normally administrators or buyers at the printer and corporate customer) it can be enabled based on login.

Introducing an order approval step allows brand owners, such as central marketing departments, to allow their users the flexibility to customise their own artwork (normally using templates), whilst remaining in control of what is produced.

XMF PrintCentre provides approvers with every detail of the order, including the customised artwork, all viewable in the browser.

Specifying a printing job, getting a price, sending a PDF and making sure everything is right can be a challenge. In XMF PrintCentre, we've reduced the process to a single screen, and the fewest number of steps possible in order to make sure that the customer gets what they expect.

Prices are calculated dynamically based on the options the customer chooses, even before they've uploaded anything. Once the upload is complete, a preview is instantly available, and if there are any problems, easy-to-understand messages are displayed. Our goal is simple; don't require the customer to be a professional print-buyer, and make sure that the job prints as expected.
