Private Sales

How Tos (4)

You can find this section under Private Sales > Private Sales in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You can use private sales to create focused sales, targeted at specific customer demographics.

  • Often, private sales are by invitation only and so customers must be added to the sale before they can access it. However you can also choose to make a private sale browsable by any member of the public.
  • You can run private sales over a specific time period or you can run them indefinitely.
  • You select the models or stock items that will be a part of the private sale, then set the sale price for each item and the ‘Available Stock’ amount for each stock item.
  • Private sales have their own CSS Styles and associated Interface Manager.
  • Customers access Private Sales at www.yourIRP.com/PrivateSale/Login.aspx

The main PrivateSales.aspx page appears as follows:

Private Sale screen

The following fields are displayed:

  • ID: This is the unique IRP identifier of a private sale.
  • Active: This indicates whether the sale is currently active (true or false). This is based on the date range for the private sale.
  • Sale Name: This is the name of the private sale.
  • Is Browsable: This indicates whether the private sale can be viewed by any member of the public (not just invitees to the private sale). This is either true (browsable) or false (not browsable).
  • Start Date: This is the start date and time of the sale.
  • Finish Date: This is the finish date and time of the sale.
  • Customers: This shows the number of customers who are invited to the sale. For more details, see the How To Add Customers to a Private Sale article in this section.
  • Stock: This shows the number of stock items involved in the sale. You can click the number in the cell to go directly to the ‘Stock in this Private Sale’ page where you can make changes and delete stock items. For more details, see the How To Add Stock to a Private Sale article in this section.
  • Orders: This shows the number of orders generated by the sale.
  • Sales: This shows the total value of the orders generated by the sale.

You can also use the following buttons on the right side of the grid:

  • View Sale: Click this button to view the Private Sale on the front end. NOTE that you will not be able to follow through the full Basket - Checkout process unless you are logged in as one of the customers invited to the sale.
  • Email: Click this button to view and send invitation emails to a private sale.
  • Customers: Click this button to see details about the customers who are invited to a private sale.
  • Edit: Click this button to make changes to a private sale. For more details, see the How To Add or Edit a Private Sale article in this section.

Search functionality is available on Private Sales pages equivalent to that on the standard site but limited to the products within the given sale. In IRP Admin you can configure the search filters that are available to Private Sale invitees on the front end. In the following screenshot, for example, you can see a search bar at the top plus various types of filtering options on the left of the page:

When customers open a model page from the page shown in the screen capture above, they can view larger images of the products by clicking the Enlarge Image link. This opens the LargeImage.aspx page in a lightbox.
