Will my online experience change?
We're here to make your online shopping experience as smooth as possible.
Below is a summary of the minor differences between platforms.
Contract item display
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc you would be familiar with seeing contract items at the top of your search results and displayed with a ‘Preferred’ blue bar in the top left corner of product image tiles (it looks like this)
On Winc.com.au – powered by NetXpress, to ensure relevant and meaningful search results each and every time you search, your contract items will now appear when you refine your search results using the left hand side filter options. From the “Refine by” menu, tick the box under “On Contract” to reduce your search to only show your contracted items. Contract items are displayed with the letter ‘C’ in the top right corner of product image tiles (it will look like this).
Ordering using bulk methods
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc, you could create bulk orders with both a single and multiple product entry in the cart using an expandable Quick Add feature. Winc.com.au now provides a quick add option in the search bar, a Bulk Add page to add multiple products using either the product code or product name and a notepad entry method.
Ordering using lists
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc, you could only have one list of favourites. On Winc.com.au we offer the ability to create multiple lists and name them. You can also order using saved lists or favourites.
GL Code Validation
Winc.com.au offers mandatory GL Code validation as free format (no validation of data entered) or as a list of items to select from. You may find the function operates slightly differently to Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc, however results are the same.
Approver Order Edit
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc approvers could edit an order and add or reject items. Winc.com.au has a more sophisticated approval engine that includes approval by category. If you need to make changes to an order, you can reclaim the entire order (assuming it has not been approved yet) and resubmit it for approval. If you reclaim an order, the Approver will be notified of this by email.
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc, you could print from your shopping cart (before check-out). Winc.com.au allows for orders to be printed after completion of the checkout process. Alternatively, you can print any page via the browser function.
On Welcome.winc / OfficeMax.winc, you were able to add a note to a product at any time. Winc.com.au will show the notes field on a product when the note line is set as mandatory, otherwise you can add a product note once you reach your shopping cart.
How can I create an order for another account?
When you sign in for the first time, you’ll be asked to select a default account number. This gives you the advantage of viewing all ‘open orders’ (orders not yet completed) for all accounts in a single list.
To view your open orders, simply go to menu ‘My Orders -> Create New / View Orders’. All orders not yet submitted will display in the list, with the account code indicating which account the order is created for.
To change accounts and create a new order, select the ‘Account Number’ from the list and then click ‘Create Order’.
Can I edit the account on an existing order?
You can edit the account on an open order (orders not yet completed). Simply go to menu ‘My Orders -> Create New / View Orders’. Click on the ‘order number’ and this will take you to the review cart page. When the page loads, click the ‘Account Number’ at the top left and a window will open allowing you to change the account for the order.
How can I create an order for an account on a different customer?
For enhanced security, Winc.com.au limits each login to a single customer group. If you require access or were previously able to access more than one customer group, you’ll be provided with separate login IDs.
