CopeCart introduces the Phone Offer, a new feature designed to ease and enhance the ordering process.
The Phone Offer feature makes the order process very flexible and effective. It does not matter what the initial product settings are – with this new feature it is possible to change the payment plan on the fly and set the product cost, installment, or subscription payments individually for each client.
