Glove orders made easier

First, it’s interesting to note that we’ve been around longer on the internet than both Amazon and Google. So it’s fair to say, we know a bit about internet shopping technology. For you internet historians, it may be interesting to footnote that we were the very first web site in the world to feature gloves. This is a trivial but well-known fact.

Furthermore, you may already know that it is much easier to find a pair of gloves that you need on Gloves-Online than finding a pair on Amazon. This is due to our easy left-panel navigation menu links along with our robust keyword search tool at the top of our home page.  Additionally, we have 2 web sites within one to segregate our consumer gloves and our industrial work gloves for even easier glove shopping.

Regarding Amazon, where you will also find our gloves but at a higher price, one look at web site navigation at GO Gloves and one look at a glove search on Amazon, you will immediately see how uncluttered and easier it is to read and find glove listings on Gloves-Online. I personally use Amazon from time to time and it amazes me how cluttered it is but I’m also a web guru, so pardon me.

Order Concerns?

Since the back-bone of our web site and shopping cart uses state-of-the-art technology, you can also check on your glove order status and even track glove orders without leaving our web site.

Accounts: You can, but it’s not mandatory, to set up an account with us where you can save all of your glove order history. This can be done at the top of our Home Page under the “My Account” link. This is helpful for our glove customers who purchase gloves on an annual basis and forgot what sizes or models they previously ordered.

Order Status: At the top of our Home page under the “Need Help” link you can check on your order status in the drop down menu using your Order ID number (which is emailed to you) and your email. This will display your order status and once your order is shipped, it will also provide you with your tracking number.

Order Tracking: Once you have your tracking number, you can see the tracking of your shipment using the USPS or UPS link. The only thing you need to remember is what shipper you selected when you placed your order.

Note: Not only are the Order Status and Order Tracking links located at the top of our Home Page under ‘Need Help”, they are also located in the footer of our Home page.

We pride ourselves on making your glove shopping and order processing as easy as possible since it’s important to us that you come back again and again. After all, everyone owns a pair of gloves or two for various needs. Even our customers in the tropics purchase gloves. Ask me about them if you’re curious.

GO Gloves purchases totally secure


https://www.gloves-online.com/

Effective this week, all pages and links on GO Gloveshave been completely encrypted with the new HTTPS protocol. This also includes our Industrial Glove web site. 
Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.
Although our web site has been encrypted for years, we have now converted to the new (HTTPS) standard which is becoming the new safe benchmark for the increase in mobile transactions. With this implementation you will now see a lock box on your browser link and this is something you want to look for on all web sites where you shop. 

We thank you for your support and your business and we look forward to a successful 2017.

8th Year Anniversary for our Industrial & Work Glove web site

http://industrial.gloves-online.com/


In January of this year we celebrated our 20thYear Anniversary on the web. 
Today marks our 8th Year Anniversary in launching our Industrial Web Site.
We developed our sister web site for those of you only interested in Industrial and Work gloves since it has easier navigation without traversing through our consumer gloves. 
Although we offer the same gloves on the main GO Glovesweb site, the navigation on the GO Industrial web site only includes indexing for work gloves.

New Feature – My Account – Client Login



We recently added many new features to our web site but one feature that we’ve added is the new “My Account” feature. This feature should be helpful since most of our glove orders are from returning customers.
Now you can log into your own account.

  • You can view your account details.

  • Edit your shipping and billing addresses.

  • Review your past glove orders.

New – GO Industrial Glove Web Site Upgrade


We are pleased to announce that we have just completed the final touches on the major revamp of our web site dedicated to Industrial Work Gloves. Link below.
Although this web site has existed since 2008, we’ve added new category navigation and site search capabilities and, obviously, a new modern look. We’ve also up-graded our shopping cart to meet customer expectations and comply with new internet security protocols. 
GO Gloves has been on-line since 1996 but we developed the Industrial Glove web site which has navigation exclusive to industrial and work gloves. However, our internal search engine will also allow you to find other hard to find gloves not displayed on the industrial site. 
By the way, if you are not on our mailing list already, we encourage you to sign up at the link at the bottom of the home page. You’ll get a 20% discount coupon just for joining us.

Happy New Year to over a Million Glove Customers


1,714,759

In September I was happy to boast about reaching the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1, 2012. That benchmark was shattered with our holiday glove sales and we ended up with a remarkable 1,714,759 customer page views by December 31st.
As a reminder to those less fluent with internet analytics, page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. The example being that if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart which I added for the doubtful.  
In conclusion, I wish to thank everyone for your support and your business and I wish you the best in the New Year. 
We’ve got some exciting new gloves to talk about this year so I’ll be back in touch shortly. In the meantime, you might like to take a look at some good Winter Gloves.
Happy New Year, We Glove You at Gloves-Online.com

GO Gloves receives top award from Amazon.com

I am very pleased to announce that last Friday the 29th; GO Gloves received the prestigious award as a “Top Holiday Seller in 2009” from the management of Amazon.com.

The award certificate states that we were honored for outstanding performance on Amazon.com over the 2009 Holiday Season. We were praised for providing an exceptional shopping experience for Amazon customers and thanked us for our hard work and dedication.

Additionally, GO Gloves ranked among the top of all Amazon Sellers over the 2009 season on the basis of net sales, and customer satisfaction metrics. We also received the highest marks (in other words A+) over this period.

Amazon isn’t the only one happy with our holiday gloves sales. They should have seen what our staff accomplished from our own web site shipping about 2,000 glove orders per day. (Enlarge image on the right for a look at our shipping dock for a typical 1st of 2 daily outbound shipments during December)

Some glove traditions never change

And GO Gloves has managed to help with hard-to-find White Gloves for the last 15 years.
As a matter of fact, White Gloves were our first major glove line on our web site back in 1996. (To put that in perspective that was 2 years before Google’s beta version.) Today, our White Glove program remains our largest product line by far and we estimate that we are the largest supplier of white glove in North America.
Besides providing gloves to doormen (see article) around the world, we have many types of white glove styles for any occasion or event. For all age groups, too. Check them out for yourself.
