Navigating the Purdy’s Website: a step-by-step guide

Hi! We’re Nadia and Darrick Heyd, and work in partnership with the Ottawa South Committee for Refugee Sponsorship on raising funds to support refugees.

Some folks have found the Purdy’s Website a little tricky to navigate. We set up this page to walk you through how to buy chocolate at the site! Have more questions? Reach out!

Step 1. Enter your email address

You clicked the “Start Here” button and it took you to the Purdy’s website where it looks something like this:

Go ahead and enter your email address, and click the “Join a Campaign” button.

Step 2: Set up a profile

You’ll be prompted to enter your name, phone number and set up a password. Go ahead and do that, and click that “Join a Campaign” button at the bottom.

Step 3: Get ready to Start Shopping!

Did you arrive at a page that looks something like this?
(If you’re purchasing from the Ottawa sale, you should see “Chocolate for Refuge – Ottawa – Easter 2021”)

If yes, Good! To start shopping, just click on “Shop Online” in the menu bar just below the Purdys logo.

If you’re getting something that looks similar, but a little different, have a look at the top right corner of the image. Do you see 3 stacked horizontal lines? Yes? Tap or click on those, and a menu will open up, from which you can choose “Shop Online.”

Step 3: Start Shopping!

Once you’ve found and clicked on Shop Online, you’ll see this:

Personally, I prefer the “Use Marketplace” button because it allows you to see all the products, and add them to your online shopping bag as you see them. It displays the products like this:

The alternative to the “Marketplace” button is the “Online Order Form” button, which takes you to a page that looks like the one below. It’s not my preference, but I suppose it would work well if you knew exactly what you wanted, or if you had a printed copy of the brochure in front of you printed

This would work well if you had a printed copy of the brochure in front of you, or if you already know exactly what you want without looking at anything!

Step 4: Done shopping for now? Remember to click on “Save” or “Proceed to Checkout” button near the bottom of the marketplace or online order form page.

If you shopped using marketplace, all you have to do is log out. Things you added to your shopping bag (look for a little number beside the view bag button near the top of the screen) will be there when you return.

If you are using the order form, clicking “Save” allows you to come back to your order later.

Clicking “Proceed to Checkout” allows you to pay for your order immediately. Will you dream of Purdy’s chocolate between now and Nov 29?

At this point, you could also contact us to set up a pick-up time if you like. Don’t worry, though, if you don’t want to do that right now. We’ll be reaching out to everyone who ordered with an email reminder to arrange a pick-up time. We’ll also include our address in that email. We are in Guildwood, near the Valu-mart plaza.

Thanks again for your support! If you are still having trouble, contact us and let’s hop on a zoom call, so I can help you troubleshoot!
