We introduced My Projects back in 2012 to simplify the buying process here at www.eEuroparts.com. My Projects allows you to save a list of parts or even save the entire cart contents into a project you can refer back to later. This allows you to keep track of all your separate car projects in one convenient place, without letting recent purchases clear the contents (as they would in your cart). This tool works a lot like many wish lists you have seen on other sites, but with so much more. You can start building a project anytime by using the ‘Save to Project’ link on each item or you can always review your projects by going to ‘My Account’ and then choosing ‘My Projects’.
Let’s say you started shopping for an upcoming vehicle repair, but over Thanksgiving you find out your Aunt is in dire need of ball joints on her Volvo. You can now save what you were working on and send your entire cart contents to a project. In the checkout window, there is a “Save to Project” button. Click this and enter a name for your upcoming repair. This makes going back and seeing what projects I have already completed on the car, or if I ever need to do them again, much easier. It also allows you to make other purchases while you prepare for another project without having to re-add parts to your cart.
For Shop Owners:
Say it’s time to place your monthly stock order for oil filters. After hunting and picking for each one of the filters you needed you can save your cart contents before checking out as a My Project called “Stock Filter Order” next month when you come back to the site, you won’t have to waste time trying to locate your filters for each car on the site. Just head over to My Projects click on the “Stock Filter Order” project and hit add to cart, saving time and money.
You can choose to be notified by email when your My Project contents are all in stock. This can be super handy for parts they may be temporarily on backorder and you need to be notified when the item is back in the building so you can place your order right away, without tying up your funds waiting for a back order. We only send notifications once letting you know that your project is in stock, this is just a reminder you will still need to place your order.
If you think your project might be useful to others, we have added a feature to share your project with other users, allowing them to see these projects on our site. Head over to my projects, click “Edit” on the project you want to share and then use the “Share Project” check box. You can even add your own pictures to your shared My Project by using Instagram and tagging the pictures with a tag we add on to your project automatically after it has been shared. Your project will be approved by a catalog expert, and then added to the site.
We are constantly adding more ways to make the site easier to use and more functional. My projects will continue to grow and improve making your parts buying experience even easier. Why not give it a try?
