How do you go about choosing the right product in a multitude of choices? That is the challenge facing ecommerce software buyers. In a world that is ever-changing, ecommerce systems have had to adapt. Some of these new technology applications include the use of social media, search engine marketing, and the ability to self-upgrade online.
When looking for the right system, you need to establish criteria that address the software’s major attributes, such as the feature set, ease of setup, ease of use, fraud protection, and support. Selecting the right ecommerce package will, in essence, determine your productivity and how fast you can start making money.
One of the main features of such a system is the ease of setup. A software package should be able to automate certain setup features. These include:
- setting up the shopping cart and the shopping cart provider
- establishing a payment gateway
- arranging for credit card processing
- opening up a merchant account
- automating marketing techniques
Ease of use for your potential customers is critical, one of the most important criteria. Do a test drive on sites that use the software you’re considering. Reports matter, too. They should be able to measure actual results and performance and track real-time statistics. With accurate reporting, you are better able to gauge your progress and plan for the future.
