E-Commerce requires an expertise level both in strategy and in site building. Also necessary: an experimental mind and an insatiable curiosity.
E-commerce works a bit differently than standard web content. People see the negatives of online shopping (security and hassle) all too easily. Every pixel on a commerce website matters and needs to show the positives first and last.
And pixels are what we deal in here -- we don't follow someone's template, we always create our own. And we don't drop in a "Buy Now" button and send 'em to the checkout, we ask what the best real methodology would be, how to get multiple items in the cart, how to make shipping a non-issue and how to reduce confusion every step of the way.
E-Commerce strategy is vital on websites. Even the simple question of whether an e-commerce will be worth the investment needs to be asked, and a methodology needs to be discussed that can test the waters before embarking on any large upgrade. E-commerce, beyond the brand and content, is a numbers game and every two percent increase matters.
We're specialists in APIs and shipping costs and fulfillment system. We've integrated with dozens of fulfillment systems and shipping systems, and written our own that interface fully with UPS, USPS and FedEx and the collective systems like Indicia. We're worked with SalesForce, Fishbowl, Quickbooks and some of the biggest tools in the industry, and we've created alternatives so none of these are necessary to run an e-commerce site.
For e-commerce sites that aren't integrated to fulfillment systems, we know having a powerful way to manage sales on the backend is important for internal systems and services. With our E-commerce CMS you will be able to stay on top of orders, track inventory, print shipping labels, manage voids and returns and calculate taxes without breaking a sweat. Because we're the authors of both the e-commerce system and ByteCMS, the storefront and the website content integrate seamlessly to ensure you and your customers get the smoothest experience possible.
