What do you get with Perch Shop?
You won’t see any features in our listing that require an expensive third-party plugin. The features we advertise are the features you have as soon as you install Perch or Perch Runway and Shop.
You are never restricted to our idea of what a product should be. Add as many custom fields as you like to each product.
You product templates are in your control, you can even create multiple templates for the same products for output in different places on the site.
Have an e-book, music or software to sell? You can with Perch Shop - no expensive plugins required to sell downloads.
Need to sell a physical book that also includes an e-book. No problem, any product can contain shippable things AND digital things.
Selling access to videos, tutorials, a member-only part of your site? Your product can assign a tag to the purchaser to give them access.
Set product dimensions and weights to enable the cart to pick the best shipping method.
Set stock levels on products or variants, and configure the maximum quantity a customer can purchase in one transaction.
Options like colour and size can be configured and applied to a product, resulting in individual variants with their own SKUs, pricing and inventory control.
Add a weight to any product and use that in shipping calculations or to offer the correct options to the customer.
Show shipping options and pricing based on the size of items.
Using our promotions system offer free shipping over a certain value.
Need to charge a different rate to ship to different locations? Shipping zones match to the customer’s address to enable you to charge appropriate rates.
Charge one price for standard ground shipping and another for next-day, and offer the customer a choice of which they’d like. Methods can be limited based on dimensions and weight (so if it weighs more than a pineapple, you’d better call UPS).
Show a “cart” or go right to payment. Experiment with the order of checkout steps - you get to choose how customers move through the process.
Forced account creation is a common reason for cart abandonment. You can choose whether customers need to create an account or not.
