Best Ecommerce Software: For Today and Tomorrow
If you already have great products and services today, why not start selling them online tomorrow?
Starting an ecommerce business can seem to be a bit overwhelming. This comes about because it’s only natural to feel anxious, fearing something that seems to be unknown. It’s true that there are a plethora of ecommerce providers out there and it’s hard to know where to start. This article will help you sort through the unknowns and get you started selling tomorrow.
Simply put, ecommerce software allows your online store to operate your business. It typically includes inventory management, product details, promotions, tax calculation and a checkout process. Basic versions allow you to list your products and accept payments. If you have big plans to significantly grow your business, you will need a provider that can scale up and add features such as integration to back end (Enterprise Resource Planning) ERP systems.
All of us have fallen victim to making a purchasing decision based on the lowest price at one time or another. As Benjamin Franklin once said — ‘The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”. Not to mention the wasted time and effort that comes with a poor decision. If you go for a more robust ecommerce software, you will likely grow faster and achieve a quick ROI.
Usability of your ecommerce software is a must have. Most will want to spend more of their time running their business rather than trying to figure out how to make a change to their ecommerce site. That is why eComchain was built with very simple, easy to use drop down menus along with drag a drop feature. Even adding pictures and photos is as simple as clicking on “add a photo”, selecting the file from your desktop and clicking save. How easy is that?
When you do need support don’t get stuck asking “Is anyone there?”. Unlike other eCommerce solutions, eComchain uses a follow the sun model, with support 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. We are here to help make sure you get the most out of your ecommerce site.
A streamlined checkout process is critical to making sure you close the sale. Ensuring an easy and secure method of checking out will give your customer the confidence that they came to the right place to shop. Avalara provides a quick integration to make sure your merchant is collecting the right amount of sales tax. Credit card tokenization keeps your site secure by sending credit card customers directly to providers and back to your site with a confirmed token for valid credit cards.
Technology does not stand still. A smartphone will last 2.5 years until it is past its prime usefulness. Similarly, ecommerce sites need to be updated to keep up with new technology. If you are not seeing consistent sales growth, it’s time for a change. At eComchain, we are constantly upgrading and releasing new features every quarter to help our customers stay fresh.
Will your ecommerce site be as good tomorrow as it is today?
