If you are thinking of selling your products online, then let us help you develop a system which matches your business needs and provides you with the confidence to move forwards.
Our e-commerce systems encompass full product administration, stock control, customer management, suppliers, orders, shipping and invoicing. We can provide you with many reports showing the strengths and weaknesses of your system and offering, and output any relevant accounts data to your preferred accounting software.
So what is an e-commerce system?
In its simplest form, an e-commerce system is a process through which a customer can make a payment (via a payment gateway) for a particular product being displayed on a website. In this case, you might redirect your customer to PayPal or Google Checkout for payment processing, after which you will receive an email notifying you of a new order. You subsequently ship the order and record it in your log book.
Alternatively, you may need something altogether more sophisticated. You may wish to allow your customer the ability to order multiple items, to select the preferred postage method and to enter discounts. You might also wish to keep your customer on your website for the entire process which reduces the chance of them leaving without buying.
You might then want to track all payment history and manage your own order fulfilment process - maybe you scan items in and out of your warehouse, or maybe you have multiple shipping companies and services which you need to utilise efficiently.
Marketing your customers can be based on their past history with your company and promotions can be applied to their specific account.
There is no one single solution that fits every business, that is why we at e-volve work very closely with our clients to identify all their specific requirements before integrating the specific business objects into our e-commerce systems.
How do we help?
Our e-commerce systems include all the relevant basic content management functionality (pages, forums, blogs etc), but with more advanced product attributes, product categories, customers, payments, postage, shipping, warehousing, refunding, replacements and discounts along with many, many more items.
We can develop bespoke applications for your warehouse or for your sales teams, or we can expose data for your accountants and accounts packages.
Should you require an XML product feed from a third party, we can integrate this and query it at specified intervals.
We can also organise all relevant Secure Socket Layers (SSLs) and help you with setting up your merchant and payment gateway accounts.
There are many options available to you, and we will therefore listen and advise you of what your options are.
