We are excited to unveil our new online store. Just a few highlights of the things the new store can provide:
Automatic adjustment of inventory levels as sales occur. Now, if an item shows in stock, it is in stock. No longer do you have to wait to hear from us to send payment or be disappointed to find the saw you wanted is out of stock.
Creation of customer profiles. The first time you make a purchase, you create a profile that is yours for as long as you visit. You no longer have to retype your shipping and other delivery information.
Automatic subscription to our newsletter. When you create your profile, check the “subscribe to newsletter” box. It will allow us to quickly and easily advise you about site updates and other sales and promotions.
Encrypted data for Security We use a private SSL Digital Certificate at 2048 bit strength to encrypt sensitive data transfered from you to our servers. This includes your login information (user name and password) as well as all the parts of the check out process. Look for the padlock located in the address bar to see if you are in a secure session. We take your security as seriously as we take our own. Rest easy that your credit card and other data will not be "sniffed" on the way to our server.
Credit card transactions. While we still accept PayPal, we now take credit cards for payment. No more mailing in checks. If you have a MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover you can pay easily and conveniently at check out.
Best of all, it will allow us to get saws up for sale more quickly than ever before, with a minimum of overhead.
We're very excited to take this leap in web commerce. The old store has served us well since 1999 when the site went live. Hard to believe we have been serving hand saw aficionados for over 11 years.
Welcome and enjoy your time here.
