Croeso! Welcome to the latest round of Up and Under web developments
Over the last few months we have been adding some functionality to our site which has now come to fruition in the shape of a serious of helpful developments and attractive additions. This is the first wave of many so don't forget to keep coming back to what else is going on. We hope you like them and are keen for any feedback that you might have.
The new homepage layout: allows you to get into the top level of your chosen category in one click, i.e. straight into the climbing department without having to click into outdoor and then climbing.
Recommended products: our new "Up and Under Recommends" sections
sit at the top of category pages and scrolls through a selection of our
and customer favourites. As an independant retailer it is our staff, who
are all end users, that carefully select our range and therefore we do
confidently recommend all products that we stock but sometimes its nice
to have a cast iron winner waved in front of you.
Filtering of categories: as before you can select subcategories within your chosen category, e.g. waterproofs or even mountaineering waterproofs from within the main outdoor clothing category, however, you can now add a number of filters to show only specifically relevant product at any category level. The top filter is for male or female, then adult or children, then by brand, price range, size and colour. Quantities are shown within each filter so that you know immediately whether there is something there of interest to you. So if you need clothing for a woman from Rab in size 14 in black or beluga that you have 7 options open to you without having to wade through heaps of mens clothing and bright colours.
Quick Link: once you have done all of your filtering you may want to return to that page at a later time or send the filtered product list to a friend or family member and you don't want to have to go through the same procedure. If you click the Quick Link icon then a web url will be created for you and you can paste it into an email to send out or save it elewhere so you can go back to your perfect selection at any time.
Add to basket popout: as soon as you click "add" to add any product to your shopping basket a popup apears that shows the cost of postage if any for delivery to the UK on our standard next working day delivery. This has the advantage that you don't have to click back from a shopping basket and there are no nasty postage charges that appear at the end of your transaction.
As with all category pages we have re-ordered our products so that they are arranged in descending price order, this means that you get to see the really exciting stuff first rather than a range of washing products and drainplugs. Special Offers now includes the standard filters such as gender and brand as elsewhere in the site, but at the top you can select from our top three areas. So that if you are a watersports fan and don't care about industrial access or hill walking and climbing then you can drill straight in to watersports. Once you have done this the sub categories appear for you to further filter if you want,so if you purely want to see Special Offer Buoyancy Aids you can get there really quickly without being distracted.Please Wait:
As we only show and choose to sell live stock through our site there are times during the shopping process where our website has to query our instore database This allows the website to make sure that there is still enough stock to fulfill your order between the time that you start your shopping and finish. This should only take a few seconds but at times like this a please wait image now apears so that you know that we are working on your order.
3D Secure: We now have MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa3D Secure integrated to the payment used on our website which adds an extra degree of security for us and should provide you with even more confidence in the Up and Under payment process.
We hope that you like the look of the new developments and enjoy the new features. Don't forget there are existing functionality like club member discounts, product reviews and our own YouTube movies about favourite products. Have fun in there.
