How to use doTERRA's Shopping Cart

Click on this video for a SHORT explanation!  (Do it now, you'll forget later!!)

You can click the bottom right box (after you start the video) to make it full screen so that you can see it closer up!

Hi, this is Emili Whitney and today we’re talking about how to use the shopping cart for doTERRA’s back office.  From the main page, go up to the purple Shop button and click on that.  It is laid out in a user friendly way and is really easy to understand.  Click through and find what you want to order.  Up here on the top, left you’ll see the news that’s going on currently.  The different promotions that are going on currently will be listed.  Then, on the top right, you will see the product of the month.  The Product of the Month (PoM) is the product that you earn for free when you place your order between the 1st and the 15th of the month, when your order is 125 pv (product volume) or higher.  To order through the Loyalty Rewards Program, click on the yellow "edit" button to change the order you already have set up.  If you haven't set it up yet, this post will show you how to set up your Loyalty Rewards Order.  If you already have a template set up and know what you want, you can just click right on your LRP order or right into your cart to check out what you already have on there.  Just adjust it to what you need.

This is your shopping cart, where everything is already listed that you ordered.  If you look at the top you can see your shipping and billing addresses, your payment confirmation, and the date that it will process.  There’s little edit buttons next to each of those so you can change them as you like. Then, down here, you’ll see your cart.  This is where everything that you’re ordering is listed.  This is what I ordered on my last order.  If you want to change something, it’s pretty self explanatory.  

However, one thing that is really quite helpful is this quick "Add to Cart" button.  If you know you want something but don’t want to search for it through the shopping, just go ahead and come here. Look it up. It will pop up below and you can just click on it. It’ll add it right to your cart.

One thing to be aware of is the points down here.  It says that this order is 145 pv. No matter what, make sure that it is always above 50 pv so that you can earn points back.  The other thing is, if you’re doing business, you want it to always be above 100 pv.  Now, you need to have it above 125 pv to get the free oil of the month promotion.  That’s kind of nice. We like to take advantage of free, when it’s offered.  When they have special offers for something like orders of $200 or more, you’ll want to check the point values to make sure it’s where it needs to be.  

Now, down here, you can see the points that you’ve earned in the past.  We’ll talk about how to redeem those, later.  Up, on the top right, you’ll see the order summary and the shipping.  If you have it on will call, the shipping is free.  If you have it on priority mail, you’ll notice with the new shopping cart that they’ll discount your shipping from $9.99 to $8.49.  They’ve saved you a $1.50 on shipping.  (Plus now they give you points back for the shipping when you order online and through the LRP program!)  Then, you can save the changes to come back and edit them later, or, if you’re sure this is what you want, you can click the Checkout button and process it yourself, right now.  You don’t have to wait for your processing date to come up.  That is probably one of my favorite features of the new shopping cart.  It’ll go ahead and list it out here.  You have the option to click either the Process Order Now button or the Process As Scheduled button.  If you process it now, it will skip your date when it comes up and change it to the next month.  You don’t have to worry about the order going through two times when you don’t want it to.

The other thing, if you’ve already placed your order and they come up with something new, or you run out of something and you want to place another order, you can go ahead and do that without having to make a new template.  You just click the Process Order Now button and it will ship it right out to you.

That’s it for the new shopping cart.  If you have any questions, let us know!
