Frequently Asked Questions About AidaForm’s Order Form Samples

Any tips on making my website order form template meet GDPR- and DPL-Compliance?

With the new data laws that have been recently rolled out - both GDPR and DPL - you will need to ensure that your order form template meets the criteria to stay above bar with data privacy. Don’t worry. The AidaForm creates your form with the security standards expected by the most recent legislation, making sure that your forms stay safe and legal online.

The biggest note for compliance is the requirement to ask permission to collect your form user’s data.

Make sure to add links to your privacy statements.

Tips and Tricks For Using Order Templates

We get it. Convincing someone to make a purchase on your website can be an awkward ask. However, if you create an engaging and easy-to-use order form, you can make the sales you need while helping your customers feel cared for!

So how do you make that perfect form? Here are a few tips to consider:


Make It Short & Sweet

Here are the hard and fast stats. According to many marketing researchers, if it takes longer than 10 minutes to fill out a form, a user will quickly lose interest and often won’t finish. When a customer doesn’t finish a payment form, you don’t get paid.

Make sure to land the sale by keeping your form short and easy to fill out. When your customers find it easy to make a purchase, they are more likely to finish that impulse buy before changing their minds!


Only Include The Essentials

This is where data drives the conversation. What are the most important pieces of information that you need to gather from your customers in order to help fulfill their orders? Make sure to keep the fields on the form simple and straightforward, and include only the fields that you need.

Online customers are smart - they will quickly notice if you are trying to capture more information than is necessary to make a purchase. (Also, this will help #1 above!) Check out the AidaForm templates for examples of simple and effective forms.


Speak The Language Of The People

People are often hesitant to make big commitments, including significant purchases or large donations. In your online shop (including the payment forms), use casual language that puts people at ease and makes them feel comfortable with the order they’re about to make.

Say you’re running an online fundraiser for a local park. Instead of putting “DONATION FORM” in all caps at the top of your form, lead with a casual question like, “Can you spare $5?” or “Ready to make it real?”.


Make It Visible On Your Site

While this isn’t a design tip, it is an important element to using your order form. Don’t bury your form deep within your site. Make sure that it is easily seen and found on your website so that customers can quickly move toward a purchase. If you keep your “Buy” button in front of your customer’s eyes, you can bet that they will be more likely to click that button and make a purchase!

While the online order form is vitally important to the success of an online business, it is often one of the last forms that are focused on by site developers. However, a well-built order form will ensure that you gather important information from your customers, and will help you continue to bring that all-important revenue!
