The Secret to a Completed Order: An Engaging Order Form Template

Order forms are the cornerstone of e-commerce – they make everyone’s shopping experience much easier. While an online order form enables your customers to effortlessly choose the products they’d like to buy and place an order, at the same time it makes it easier for you to process their orders and get paid.

Still, creating an order form with no coding experience can be a challenge. That’s only if you’re not using the right tool, of course. Speaking of right tools, LeadQuizzes makes creating forms just as intuitive and straightforward as placing an order using one of those forms – all you need is just a few minutes.

Plus, we have prepared several customizable order form template ideas to get you started.

But before that, let’s just share a word or two about order forms and briefly examine some of the reasons why you absolutely have to be using one on your e-commerce website.

What is an order form?

An order form is a sales tool that allows your customers to provide you with all the necessary details about your products or services they would like to purchase. At the same time, it enables you to collect all the data you need to make sure your customer gets what they ordered.

In a way, it represents a sales agreement between the seller and the buyer. It asks for all the relevant details of the order, the customer’s contact info, and the payment and shipment preferences.

Why your e-commerce website needs an online order form

Even though you might still be tempted to create your order form as a Word or PDF doc, you should instantly reconsider doing so. God forbid you’re thinking about printing your order forms and distributing them offline.

Taking your order forms online will not only save you time, effort, and money, but it will also make it easier for your customers to find and purchase your products. Filling out an online order form can be done in a matter of minutes and it’s much easier for you to process the customer data obtained that way.

Online order form

Online order forms are interactive, can be automated to a certain degree, and are easy to integrate with other tools and processes that are a part of your sales funnel. But don’t take my word for it, feel free to check out our ready-to-use order form template down below.

What makes a good order form?

It’s optimized for an easy purchase process

When creating your order form, make sure to optimize the purchase flow using dropdown lists, form fields, single or multiple selection questions, or even long answer fields. You can also make use of logic branching to anticipate some of the actions your customers might take and provide additional options or questions based on their answers.

For example, our catering order form template offers two logic branching paths depending on whether a user opts for pick-up or delivery. You can always simply use any of our pre-designed order form examples and easily customize it to fit your needs perfectly.

It’s engaging

A good order form should engage your customers as much as possible. It should imitate offline shopping experience in a way that after a customer browses your shop and decides what they’re going to buy, they’re greeted with a hospitable and user-friendly experience that enables them to easily select the goods or services they want and make a seamless purchase.

It’s branded

Your brand should be an integral part of your order form. LeadQuizzes enables you to add your own logo to your form, change the font, colors, opacity, add images, and more.

Your order form should match the design of the rest of your website and contribute to your overall brand design identity and that’s exactly something you can do with a versatile form builder such as LeadQuizzes.

It’s visual

Studies have shown that 65% of people are visual learners. That being said, you should consider making your order form as visual as possible. You can achieve that by using questions with image answers wherever possible.

For example, you can display your products using image answer options. Let’s face it, no textual description can really replace an actual photo of a product. Or you can use images, videos, dropdown lists, form fields and other options to let them choose their preferences in terms of color, size, quantity, material, and so on.

If you check out our t-shirt order form template, you can see that we used image choices to make it more visual and more engaging. By the way, if you’re selling t-shirts or other clothing, feel free to use our ready-made order form template or customize it according to your needs.

It integrates with other automation and analytics tools

When it comes to data collection and management, it’s all about seamless integrations. LeadQuizzes order forms can be easily integrated with MailChimp, Infusionsoft, and Facebook Pixel thus enabling you to send the data obtained by the form directly to your CRM or other tools.

LeadQuizzes Integrations

In addition to the above-mentioned native integrations, you can connect your LeadQuizzes order forms to dozens of other apps and tools using Zapier.

It enables you to collect absolutely all the data you need

Here are some of the things most order forms should ask for (as can be seen from our order form template ideas below):

  • Address. If you’re selling a physical product, this one is a no-brainer. How else will you know where to ship it? Depending on the available payment methods and the type of the product or service you’re offering, you should consider collecting both the billing and shipping addresses.
  • Name. Another no-brainer. In most cases, you’d want to get both the first and the last name or your customer.
  • Email address/phone number. You definitely need to get some piece of contact information from your customer but I suggest to ask for only one unless it’s absolutely necessary to have both the email address and phone number. If your product needs shipping than you’d probably need the phone number for delivery service. If not, the email address would suffice.

Of course, there are customers who may be interested in your product or service but still haven’t progressed that far along your sales funnel. Still, you should obtain their information and use it to further nurture that relationship until they’re ready to buy. How exactly? Online contact forms.

Now that we’ve shared some tips about what makes a great order form, let’s take it one step forward and actually provide you with some order form template ideas for different products and industries.
