Where's My Order?

Order Order

Paul Mabray, Chief Strategy Officer at VinTank was lamenting on twitter about how he ordered wine from 6 different wineries via the web and no one followed up with him. Brent and I tried the experiment ourselves a year ago with 20 Canadian wineries - unfortunately almost every website underperformed.

This past week I ordered wine (as a first time customer) from a couple different winery websites. I'm still waiting for my tracking information (even though some of the packages  have already arrived).

At a bare minimum a website should:

  1. Send an email order confirmation immediately after the order was placed.
  2. Send tracking information as soon as the order has been shipped.
  3. Provide a mechanism for customer feedback. Make it easy for customers to respond, ask questions, or even complain.
