Functions in the shopping cart


The functions in detail

(1) Direct order function

Do you know the part numbers for the parts you need and want to add them to your shopping cart as quickly as possible? The direct order function offers you two different ways of doing this.

If you only want to add one or two parts, you can use the individual part function. Enter the part number and the quantity you require. If you want to add a second part, click on the "+" icon. When you click "Add to shopping cart", the parts will be added to your personal shopping cart.

If you want to add more than two or three parts to your shopping cart at the same time, the best way of doing this is using the parts list. Create a document – e.g. a Word or Excel file – with the following structure: Part number TAB Quantity. Copy the list and add it to the corresponding field in the shopping cart. Please enter only one part number per row. Empty rows are ignored.

Our "How to" video offers a step-by-step explanation of how to use the direct order function.

In this episode, we explain the fastest way to add products to the shopping cart.

(2) Accessories and spare parts

In order to make it easier for you to find the matching accessories and spare parts, they are listed both on the part details page and in the shopping cart itself.

If there are accessories or spare parts available for the part you have selected, a button will appear accordingly in the shopping cart. Click this button to view all the related parts in a separate window.

Here too, you can check part availability or add the parts to your watchlist, comparison list or shopping cart.

(3) Using & saving the comments box

Do you want to leave our order management team a note for certain parts in your shopping cart? Maybe you need to add a comment for internal use, such as the cost center for the part in question? If so, then the comments box is the function you need. Add a comment and save it by pressing the enter key on your keyboard or clicking the refresh button next to the quantity box.

Start by placing the parts you require in your shopping cart. The shopping cart then offers two options for your next step: Request quotation or go to checkout. To receive a non-binding quotation, click "Request quotation".

You will need to follow a few steps before you can submit your inquiry to us. This enables us to collect the information we need in order to draw up a quotation that's right for you.

If the recipient you are looking for is not yet in your address book, you can also add a new delivery address manually. If you are likely to use this delivery address frequently, you can save it to your personal address book. You can change the addresses you add at any time in the area My account > Address book.

Next, you need to select your preferred shipping option. The shipping options available depend on the weight of the parts in your shopping cart.

Once you have done this, you can select your preferred payment option. The payment options available depend on what payment conditions are saved in our system for your company. Please note: Only the "Prepayment" method is available to new customers.

The e-mail the recipient receives will contain a link to the shopping cart. When they click on this link, the parts will be added to the shopping cart. If the shopping cart already contains other parts, the forwarded parts will be listed in a separate section of the shopping cart to avoid confusion.

This file will contain all the relevant information from your shopping cart, such as the part numbers, designations and a brief description of each part. The part prices and the comments you have added to your shopping cart will also be included, of course. The CSV file can be uploaded directly to your merchandise management system.

The additional functions allow you to check the current availability of the parts in question directly in the shopping cart. This function is only available if you are registered and logged in.

Have you added a part to your shopping cart that you don't actually need until later, but you don't want to have to search for it again? Click the "Add to watchlist" link. This will remove the part in question from your shopping cart and add it to your personal watchlist. You can access the watchlist by clicking the icon in the website header or via the area My account.

You can alter the quantities in your watchlist at any time. Press the enter key or click the refresh button next to the quantity box to confirm your changes.

Prices are only visible to users who are registered and logged into the website.

If you want to add multiple parts to your shopping cart at the same time, the quickest way is to upload a CSV file.

Add the parts you require to a CSV file. The file must be structured as follows: A PART NUMBER;QUANTITY.It is especially important to separate the part number and the quantity using a semi-colon. You can also view the exact structure in our example file. Please list only one part number per row. Empty rows are ignored.

Next, select your file in the shopping cart. To ensure that the upload is completed without any problems, it is best to name the file upload-schmalz.csv. Once you have done this, click the shopping cart button to add the parts to your shopping cart.
