As you may have guessed we are pretty excited about the new site and there are some great new features. The new shopping software is much more complex and took months of programming to set up, but the result is a site that customers will find much easier to use. There are also some features on the old site that we were unable to incorporate, and many we we able to retain or improve. I've put together this page for those customers who previously shopped with us at One Stop.
If you had an account at onestopcandle.com we were able to migrate 99.9% of the accounts to chocomolds.com and your customer login and password should work here. There were a few accounts that could not be migrated, and if your login doesn't work you will need to set up a new account here. Note that the order history and other information was not able to be migrated from onestop.
A new feature has been added that allows the login screen to look up your login name from your email address as well. This only works if you enter the email address in your account records.
The following improvements have been made to the site:
- Discount Program - With few exceptions, orders over 20.00 are automatically discounted.
- Faster page loading due to improved database and streamlining the page coding.
- Reduced header size - More of the page contents are visible without scrolling.
- New color theme - I know many folks hated the pink at One Stop.
- No non food related products.
- Improved product category and sub category layout.
- Scalable pages - Pages should display well at almost any size desired.
