|How To Speed Order B & R DVDS|
OK, you know the B & R volume numbers you'd like to buy but it's a right pain going through all the menus. What you need is the "FastOrder" method! It relies on the fact that the B & R volume numbers are part of the stock code. Of course if you know the stock codes for any other non-B & R DVDs, you can use this method for those as well!
- The "Quick Search" box is located at the top right of my web site, just below the shopping basket.
- All B & R DVDs have a stock code that contains the volume number. e.g.BR120D is Volume 120 on DVD.
- Enter the stock code of your DVD in the "Quick Search" Box and click on SEARCH
- The SEARCH RESULTS are displayed in the middle of the web page. The required B & R volume is shown in full and highlighted e.g. 1.Vol.120 - South Wales Archive (60-mins) (Published - 21Mar06). Click on this to go to the correct page.
- The DVD is now displayed. Scroll down the page until you see "ADD TO CART". Click on it and the DVD is added to your shopping cart. A window labelled "SHOPPING CART STATUS" is displayed for a few seconds, before you are automatically returned to the main page again.
- The CART DETAILS box at the top right of the page shows the number of items in your shopping cart.
- To add another DVD, simply enter its stock code in the SEARCH box and repeat the above steps. Keep repeating this sequence until you've got all the DVDs you want to order in your shopping cart list.
- We are now going to place the order for the DVDs you've picked. If the WR home page is displayed (the page that says "Welcome...") then click on the "Enter Shop" option in the list of menu options just below the train pictures on the home page. That will make sure you are in the shop pages. If you are already in the shop then one of those menu options will say "Check Out".
- Click on "Checkout". It will take you to the CHECKOUT page which is on my secure server. Think of the secure server as going into the Strong Room of a real shop where all you can see are the payment counter and the shopping trolley you've brought with you.
- The CHECKOUT page shows a list of the DVDs you've ordered. DON'T PANIC if you want to change the list and there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. There is. Scroll down the page and click on the CANCEL button. That will take you back out of the secure server into the shop and you will see the menu options re-appear at the top. You can change your order by clicking on View Basket and the SHOPPING CART page is displayed. There are buttons which allow to add or delete items on your order.
- Assuming that you still in the CHECK OUT page, fill in the information it requests and click on NEXT to go to the next stage of CHECK OUT.
- This is the "method of payment" page and just enter the details it requests. Click on NEXT.
- Finally a confimation page is displayed.
- A copy of your order (the order acknowledgement) will also have been emailed to you, providing your correct email address has been supplied i.e. no typing errors!
|How To Order|
You can browse and order videos from our site as follows:1. Web Shop: Click here for our secure online catalogue with search facility. You can make secure credit/debit card payments with this system. (the content is the same as the older look catalogue). The card payment is actually taken by WorldPay (formerly Streamline, part of NatWest) using a gateway called"SellerDeck Payments". This is all PCI compliant. We never see your card details!2. Email Ordering: Jot down the stock codes and titles and then email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will then telephone you for your card and address details3. Telephone: I have two offices and two main telephone lines. Both are manned during normal office hours with an answering system at other times. The telephonenumbers are: Olney Office: 01234 711 615 Leicester Office (formerly THE SIGNAL BOX): 01234 81 81 70 Note that due to the "magic" of the telephone system, this number rings in both the Leicester office and the Olney office despite it not being a Leicester 0116 number.4. Paper Order Form: By post to: Wolverton Rail. PO BOX 3734, Olney, Milton Keynes, MK16 6DS. You can still use the old Incon House address (if you have it) but it just takes longer for your order to reach me. You can download a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of our "paper" order form from: HERE and print it on your own printer. You can obtain a viewer/plugin for pdf by clicking here.
|5. Paper Catalogue:|
I'm often asked why I don't have a paper catalogue as well as the web site. Well I used to back in the days when there were only about 2000 titles. And each title had a summary description of a couple of lines. Which was probably good enough back in the late 1990s. However fast forward to today and there are now over 6000 transport titles . Plus I don't know about you but I like to to know as much information as I can find about the contents of a DVD which is why my web site contains as much information as I can find. So why don't I produce a paper catalogue of the web site? I did once just to see what it would turn out like. Even with double sided printing and tiny, hard to read text, it was big, very big and about the size and weight of a well-known high street traders catalogue (Ar**s). This would cost a small fortune to post and over £15 per copy just to print. So.. err .. no!I do though, produce B & R Video's steam and diesel archive DVDs catalogue and the version with WR branding is available from here. It is kept up to date.
