Miva – Add California PROP65 Dynamic Display during Checkout

It can be difficult to get crucial information to customers while shopping online. Information can vary by product and/or state making it especially impossible to get the right message to those who need it. An example is PROP65 – California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. The law was introduced to help consumers make informed shopping decisions and help protect shoppers from chemicals that may cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Businesses selling products that contain any of these chemicals must provide a clear warning before the customer purchases the item. The issue however, is how to inform the customer without clogging product pages with information that could ultimately be missed?

Glendale Designs has created a warning message that will conveniently appear to the customer during the checkout. This useful customization is based on the ship-to state and whether a product has a specific regulation. A message is shown to the customer informing them that an item they would like to purchase carries a restriction or warning message. The customer can then choose to continue with their purchase or return to the basket and remove the item. This allows the customer to make informed decisions and ensures the business owner is providing the information in a clear and concise manner.

The message can be customized based on state and regulation requirements making it a convenient way to pass on information to your shoppers. Contact us today to add this functionality to your website!
