What's New @ Q?

We've been quite busy here at Q Source lately, adding new features and functionality to make your experience as quick, easy, and productive as possible. Check out our latest efforts to truly make Q Source your Resource:

NEW WAYS TO FIND WHAT YOU NEED has always offered multiple ways to easily find the products you need, and now we've made the process even more convenient. With our expanded and improved Related Products feature and our new Departments section you'll find what you're looking for (and maybe even some items you didn't realize you needed) even faster. Now when you go to a product page you'll notice the new Related Products section at the bottom of the page. The best part is the "Add to Cart" button that allows you to add that product to your cart without leaving the current item's page—a great time-saver when shopping for multiple items!

At the top of our Web page you'll find the new Departments drop-down menu. This constantly expanding section makes it faster to get to the products that are most important to our customers.

Quick Response (QR) Codes are a great way to share information about products and we've now added them to each product page on Want to share product info about something you've found on our Web site? Just scan the QR Code with your Smartphone and send it along in a text message or email.

Look for more QR Codes on our Web site, in our Tweets, and in our newsletters in the near future. We're putting the "Q" in QR Code!


You asked for more checkout options and we've delivered. In addition to adding PayPal™ and Google Checkout to, we've also created a convenient Mini Cart (which we think is pretty cool) that appears on every page.

The Mini Cart sits in the upper left of each page and updates automatically when you add an item to your cart. This allows you to see everything in your cart until you are ready to checkout, which you can do by simply clicking on "Checkout" in the Mini Cart. And when you get to the Checkout page you'll find that you now have the option to pay via PayPal or Google Checkout.

Do you have your own FedEx® or UPS® account? If so, Q Source has made it easy for you to control your shipping costs. Enter your FedEx or UPS account number at checkout—it's that simple! Just another way Q Source makes your shopping experience quick, easy, and convenient.

Social networking is a great way for people to communicate, share ideas, and ask questions. At Q Source we have 25+ years of experience and expertise to share and we want to hear from you, too. With that in mind, we've gone social!

In addition to this blog (The Q Source Resource - and our newsletter (subscribe here), we've started Twitter (@q_source) and Facebook accounts. So, please, "subscribe," "follow," and "like" us...we promise it will be worth it.

Look for a regular stream of product and industry news, how-to's, Q&A's, and even just some plain ol' fun. And please feel free to comment, share, and question us—after all, we are a solution provider!

Whew! We HAVE been busy...and there's even more to come! So, keep visiting and, remember, Q Source is your Resource!
