You can customize which fields show in the form and choose other preferences like what happens after the form is sent.

Default Inquiry Form

The popup window will use the inquiry form fields provided by our plugin by default. You can use the settings to customize which fields show and which fields are required to be filled.

Default Inquiry Form

If you want to use the default inquiry form provided by our plugin on the checkout redirect page, simply copy and paste the shortcode [surelywp_cm_inquiry_form] into the page content of the selected checkout redirect page.

3rd Party Inquiry Form Shortcode

If you want to use your own 3rd party form in the checkout redirect page, simply find the shortcode from your form plugin and copy and paste it into the page content of the selected checkout redirect page.

 

7. Customize The Default Inquiry Form Field Options

The Catalog Mode For SureCart plugin uses a form for either the popup window or as a form added to a regular page with a shortcode. Either way, the form fields can be customized to choose which fields to show and which ones are required to be filled. You can choose to show the product name field, which will be automatically populated with the name of the product on SureCart product pages. You can choose to show or hide the name field, email address field, subject field, and message field.

We make it easy to customize the email that sends to the store owner when a customer sends an inquiry form. You can use variables like the admin user’s name, website name, or product name. The fields also show data using the variables like name, email, subject, and message. You can update the text of the email template however you want, but just be sure to include the variables. You can also customize the email subject line.

Yes, please do! We are very interested and actively working on expanding our collection of SureCart addons, and would love to hear your ideas!
