Welcome to the NEW ToolWeb.com! - What's New?
The NEW ToolWeb is officially here! Along with the great new look and feel, it also has some useful new features. Below you will find an overview of some of the new features we have for you. Our development team is constantly working to improve functionality and add new features to save you time and make you more money. If you ever have an idea of something we could add to the website that would help you sell more tools, please let your salesman know, so they can share it with our team.
The new checkout makes it very quick for you to place orders. If you typically ship to the same address, use the same shipping method and are on open account, you will literally have one click checkout! Don't worry, if you don't fall into that category, it is still really easy.
Please Note: Because your privacy and security is our #1 priority, checkout will temporarily not allow you to save your credit card information for future use. We are working to add this functionality with a completely secure and easy to use interface.
Feature: Kiosk Mode
Kiosk mode allows you to switch the displayed pricing on the fly so you can show products to your customers without them seeing your cost. You can choose Original (Your Pricing), cash, credit card, finance or no pricing. The cash, credit card and finance margins are set by you in the My Account area.
Navigation: Main Menu > My Account > Kiosk Settings
Click the radio button to select the default pricing. Each time you login, the default pricing will be shown.
Set the margin percentage for each type of payment and then click Save Kiosk Settings.
To change the pricing on the fly, click "Kiosk Mode" on the footer menu and click the pricing you want displayed.
Please Note: The "Add to Cart" function and checkout are only available in when showing Original (Your Pricing) pricing.
