Custom Club: Set Up Custom Clubs

Set Up Custom Clubs

Note: These steps are only applicable if you contact the vinSUITE Client Services Team to enable custom clubs. If you are interested in using custom club, please contact the vinSUITE Client Services Team at Custom Club is only accessible in the eWinery admin panel and Base 3 websites.


1) First, you must decide on the name for your custom club. You can call it something specific to your winery, or simply keep labeled as "custom club." 

2) Next, decide if the custom club orders that are finished on your website should be set to Pending Custom Club Order or a Completed status in the eWinery admin panel. 

Pending Custom Club Order status: Selecting this status allows club members to complete their custom orders on your website. All custom orders will remain unprocessed until an admin user manually processes the orders.


Benefits Considerations
More Control - You have the ability to personally review or modify every custom club order before it is processed and shipped to the customer, providing a superior customer experience.  More Time- You will be involved in processing club orders, which could mean spending more time on club batches. 

Completed status: Selecting this status allows club members to complete their custom orders on your website and eWinery will automatically process these orders. Any orders with a completed status will be ready for shipping. 

Benefits Considerations
Orders Automatically Completed - Custom orders will be processed and ready to ship without any manual interaction, saving you time and tasks on your to-do list.  Less Control - You may not be able to review or modify a custom order before it is shipped to the customer, especially if orders are set to ship immediately. 

Note: This setting operates separately and will not affect your order status setting. This setting only pertains to orders created in your web store by a club member.
