Your Bridge 2.0 update is complete. Your site now offers a smoother, cleaner experience for customers--and you.
Your upgrade to 2.0 software is free and automatic--you do not need to take any steps. This free upgrade is especially valuable because a new retail website costs $11,000 - $29,000 on average to setup. (Source: Atlantic Business Technologies.)

+ Customer can more easily add product to the shopping cart. Controlling product quantities is be accomplished via "-" and "+" buttons (instead of a drop down).
+ You and customers can more easily login. Login id be one set of fields (vs two). Registrants, Bridge members, and customers use the same login field.

+ When adding a new item, you can customize which departments appear as choices.
+ After adding a SKU, you can edit it (previously, you couldn't once it was added).
