Our e-commerce websites incorporate graphic design with database functionality to sell your products online effectively. Our team of designers and programmers works closely with you to understand your products and sales process in order to present and organize your products to your target audience. Not only can we program the typical shopping cart website , we also have the ability to program custom e-commerce websites that can sell virtually any type of product, even products that cannot normally be sold with a typical shopping cart. Regardless of the product, our business consulting experts can work with the development staff to design a solution for your business.
Catalog / Store Development
Our online catalogs can be designed and organized into any configuration. While some sites only organize products into categories and subcategories, other online catalogs require more levels of organization to make the presentation easier for the website visitor. Your online store or catalog can be designed to your specifications and based on your needs.
Search Engine Optimized Catalog
Many developers can create online stores , but very few program the catalog pages to self-optimize for the search engines. As experts in search engine optimization , we make it a point to provide more value to the store by programming the ability for the pages to be indexed separately in the search engines.
If you have shopped online, you may have noticed that checkout pages can be organized in any numbers of ways. We work with you to design the checkout pages to your specifications and at the same time to be easy for your customers.
Real-time Shipping Integration
For products that are being shipped, we have the ability to integrate the website with FedEx, UPS or USPS in order to retrieve the actual shipping options and costs for the checkout process. For products that use package shipping, we send the origin zip code, destination zip code and shopping cart weight to the preferred carrier and process the responses to present shipping options and associated prices. This allows the customer to select their shipping method and add it to the order total during the checkout process. For the products that are too large or heavy for standard package shipping, we also have the ability to integrate websites with several LTL carriers.
Real-time Credit Card Processing
If you sell the types of products that can be purchased using a credit card, we can integrate real-time credit card authorizations and processing as the final step of checkout in your e-commerce store . By incorporating the real-time processing, funds from the purchases are deposited directly into your bank account within a few business days.
RFP / Purchase Order Processing
For businesses that cannot accept credit card payments on their products, we offer a solution that will allow your customers to place orders. Instead of completing the checkout with a payment, the orders are submitted into a database where they can be processed manually by your staff. This feature enables you to offer e-commerce on your website, providing your customers with the ability to place orders, while at the same time integrating into your usual sale process.
