Back End Order Entry (BEOE)
UltraCart's Back End Order Entry (BEOE) system is designed to allow merchants to enter orders directly into their Back Office System without going through their normal Web Store purchasing processes. This system gives you the opportunity to take direct orders for your products by phone, email or call-taker service.
In the process of authoring computer software, its standards or documentation, deprecation is a status applied to software features to indicate that they should be avoided, typically because they have been superseded. Although deprecated features remain in the software, their use may raise warning messages recommending alternative practices, and deprecation may indicate that the feature will be removed in the future. Features are deprecated--rather than immediately removed--in order to provide backward compatibility, and give programmers who have used the feature time to bring their code into compliance with the new standard.
Return Email feature (aka Abandon Sale Recovery) allows you to configure UltraCart to automatically send a very personalized email to the customer if they abandon their shopping cart. UltraCart will also generate a unique link in the email that will take the customer back to the shopping cart with all of their items pre-populated. A discount coupon that you have already created will automatically be applied. Viola, you saved a sale!
