Extra Features

Beyond her usual milieu of checkout counter goodtimes, Hazel has some advanced features certain merchants might find useful.

Softgoods are products which can be immediately delivered to the shopper upon order completion. Examples include music, graphics, movies, literature, and other digital files. With Hazel's softgoods feature, you can offer these items on your server for immediate delivery to the shopper.

Unlike most web search engines, Hazel's search feature searches the structured data in her products file. This provides your shoppers with the ability to search on price, features, keywords, and much more. Hazel's search capabilities can also be used in her loops, giving you a simple way of dynamically displaying groups of products in the aisles of your virtual store.

Optioned products are those items offered which have a basic type, but user-customized modifications. Clothing is a good example: you might want to allow a shopper to choose color, size, design, and so forth, all on the same basic type of product. Hazel's optioned products feature allows you to do this without adding a unique product SKUID for every available permutation of a single product's colors, sizes, and other features.

HAM is the thigh of an animal (usually a hog) cured by salting and smoking. It's also short for "Hazel's Admin Module" -- an easy way to configure your Hazel store over the web.
