Hi, bookstore fans! It's so great to be introducing our latest manifestation of heritagebks.com! While our last overhaul included some much needed updates, this time around we were aiming for something a little more efficient on both our end and yours. The new site will not only be easier for you all to navigate with a cleaner layout, we're going to be able maintain it directly, assuring updates happen correctly and promptly. It's in the beginning stages right now, so we hope to get your feedback as we continue to refine and develop things! After all, this site is for you! For now, I'd like to take you through some of our newest improvements and features:
-Better layout. Our new layout is cleaner, more optimized (better for mobile!) and easier to navigate than ever. Need more information? You can click for more, or in some cases, roll over areas for more details, but there's no more clutter with information you might not need at the moment. That means faster downloading, and more control for you.
-Direct online shopping. This one is so exciting! Now instead of filling out a contact form, you can simply add an item to your basket. You can view items in detail with multiple, clear images- something that's important to collectors and casual shoppers alike. You can also broaden or narrow search results, preview shipping, and more. We keep your financial information safe by using third-party payment systems such as Stripe for your credit card payments, and of course we offer the highly reputable Paypal as an option. But finally, finally, you can simply place an order and buy direct from us. Woo-hoo!
-Shop our book inventory, right here! In the past, our book inventory was not available for perusal on our website. The best we could do was link to one of our seller sites such as Alibris, Amazon, Abe, or Biblio. We will continue to sell through these sites for those who prefer that option, but for the first time ever, you can search directly on the page for our available books. We're still working on getting photos uploaded, as our inventory is gigantic, but if you decide the item description isn't enough to convince you, just drop us a line and we'll happily snap a photo or two for you.
-Communication is easier than ever! Not only are there several options for contacting us, it's just a click of a button to share our stuff to friends via email or social media.
These are just a few of the improvements we're making and we'll be continuing to tailor the site as we go along. We welcome you to be part of the process! Your comments and feedback are both invited and appreciated. We thank you for your interest and your support!
