The Ebizio Custom Checkout app from IntuitSolutions is a popular choice for our Business to Business BigCommerce clients who want more customization options for the checkout experience on their site. In this article, we'll talk a little about what the Ebizio Custom Checkout app can do, and why you might want to use it.
Ebizio Custom Checkout's main feature is being able to customize your checkout beyond the basic capacity that BigCommerce offers. You can learn more about that here.
Ebizio also has several different modules offering different features; we'll quickly go over them here.
Ship On Account
Ebizio's Ship On Account module allows customers to have their orders shipped using the information for an existing account, with the shipping provider of their choice. Customers need to input some required information (the account number, shipping provider, etc.) before completing the order. All of this can be easily added to your checkout experience using Ebizio.
After the order is made, you'll be able to view the account & shipping provider on the order record in BigCommerce. You can read more about the Ship On Account module here.
The Purchase Order module allows you to create custom fields on purchase order payment methods to collect more information. You can customize the checkout to include fields for whatever you need; things like PO numbers, account managers, date receivable, etc. are common choices.
The information entered by the customer will be viewable on the order record in BigCommerce. You can read more about the Purchase Order module here.
Customer Group Shipping Rules
The Customer Group Shipping Rules module lets you offer specific customers access to specific shipping options. If, for example, you only want to offer freight shipping to certain customers, you can customize your checkout to only offer that option to those specific customers. You can learn more about the Customer Group Shipping Rules module here.
Customer Group Payment Rules
Similar to the module discussed above, the customer group payment rules module allows you to offer specific payment methods only to specific groups of customers. You can customize which payment methods are limited to which customers, so you have complete control over the options you want to offer. You can learn more about the Customer Group Payment Rules module here.
The Text Editor module allows you to customize the automatically generated text included in the BigCommerce checkout. You can use this to offer specific instructions, or just to personalize your checkout so it suits your brand. You can learn more about the Text Editor module here.
The Style Editor module allows you to update the basic styles of the BigCommerce checkout experience. Similar to the text editor above, this allows you to better customize your checkout to match your brand. You can learn more about the Style Editor module here.
