About Our New Site
About our New Website
As you see, our website has a fresh new look! After several years of service from the old site, Ecopalms has grown to the point that it was time for an upgrade. Working with a great web developer and based on feedback from our church partners, we have designed this new site to be easier to use, keep you better informed about your order and provide more content for you.
KEY IMPROVEMENTS with the New Site!
1. The new site CREATES AN ACCOUNT when you order.
a. When you create an account, you have access to view your order at any time. Just login and clink View My Order Status. You can see if your check has been received, if your CC payment went through, what quantity you ordered, etc.
b. You will be able to login and get your Fed Ex Tracking number. Your tracking number will be available of the shipment week. (varies by year as the Easter date changes.)
c. If you need to make a change to your shipping address, you can login and make that change up until the cutoff date. Note: you cannot change your order quantity. Once you have confirmed your order you cannot make changes to the quantity. Please review your order carefully before confirming it. If you need to make that type of change, please contact us.
d. Next year, you will be able to login and see what you ordered the previous year! If you forgot your password click on the 'forgot password' link to have it emailed to you (first click on Login at the top). Added Bonus: Your account will already have contact info and your shipping and billing address so less typing next year!
2. The New Site features a SHOPPING CART ordering system.
a. This is a familiar type of online ordering providing great ease of use. Most online ordering sites utilize this type of ordering.
3. Increased CONTENT

Check out the new tabs at top to download a brochure about the program, view Frequently Asked Questions and get your questions answered quickly, enjoy a video of the harvest, download materials for your church, print Care and Handling instructions for your palms and more. There’s lots of interesting things to check out.
