New Vines OS Feature Streamlines Club Member Signup During Online Checkout

Posted on October 15, 2014

October 16, 2014, San Jose, CA — Vines OS, a comprehensive eCommerce winery solution built specifically for wineries, announces a new feature that encourages online Wine Club signups while purchasing online. Club discounts are clearly displayed, along with a simple pop up window that allows shoppers to select the Club option of their choice, without ever leaving the checkout page.

Because Vines OS has built in Fed Ex and UPS integration, shipping costs and taxes are automatically displayed up front, clearly informing the consumer of these costs before they’ve entered all their credit card information. This helps avoid those all too frequent cart abandonments that plague online wine sales.

Additionally, shoppers do not need to login or create an account to purchase wine.
Research shows that up to 75% of users will abandon a cart if forced to register or login while making a purchase. In another study, online purchases increased by as much as 45% when forced registration was removed.

Long time Vines OS client, Cinnabar Winery, is already taking advantage of this powerful new feature. "Once again Vines OS takes the lead in tasting room software application. Their updates in enabling club sign ups at check out are simple, yet highly effective," observed Frank Cates, director sales and marketing, Cinnabar Winery.
