Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to our most common questions.
Can customers place orders via the portal?
The customer service portal only allows informational access, it doesn't provide e-commerce capabilities. Those functions are readily available in WebAlliance E-Commerce
Can customers contact us via the portal?
Yes, the portal provides an easy-to-use contact form that users can utilize to send you product inquiries or general contacts. This form can send an email to any address you choose
Can customers build request a quote via the portal?
WebAlliance Customer Service Portal has an optional module that provides a 'quote cart' to your users so that they can create and submit a list of items they would like you to quote for them.
Can customers pay invoices via the portal?
WebAlliance Customer Service Portal has an optional module that provides an online invoice payment portal. Customers can select invoices and amounts to pay as well as submit payments via credit card or e-check (payment gateway required).
Does the portal replace my marketing website?
The WebAlliance Customer Service Portal does not replace your marketing website. The portal is intended to be a companion to your marketing site that is linked to from your site. The colors and logo can be changed to match your branding.
Can customers self-register/self-sign up for the portal?
Yes, customers can self-register for the portal by completing a sign up form. You can decide if you want to manually approve users and assign them to their customer code, or have them validate their identity via previous invoice and be automatically approved.
Can we move to e-commerce after we start with the portal?
Yes. The customer service portal is a great first step on the way to WebAlliance e-commerce. For instance, should you eventually decide to do e-commerce, your users will use the same credentials, etc. saving you time.
Can we import quotes into the ERP?
The platinum portal package has the ability to allow for importing quotes into an ERP. Note that the ability to import is dependent upon the import abilities of your ERP. Your ERP must also support the ability to automatically import data. Please contact us with your ERP name and version for specific details.
Will the portal email customers when they have past due invoices?
The portal doesn't send invoice information to your customers. That function is handled by your ERP. However, when your ERP emails customers about an invoice (past due or not), the portal provides a place where they can go online to see a copy of that invoice.
Do customers get immediate access when requesting an account?
Whether or not customers get immediate access to the portal or require your approval for their portal access is up to you. The portal can approve them automatically, or it can hold their account info and allow you to manually review it. In either case, you'll always be notified of a new customer portal account creation.
What are your billing and contract terms?
Portal pricing is available either on either a 12 month contract basis or month-to-month pricing terms. Standard portal pricing is based on auto-billing via ACH and options are available to auto-bill a credit card if you prefer (processing fees apply).
