eCommerce has become an important part of today's digital world providing retailers the opportunity to reach a larger customer base to efficiently and conveniently transact and interact.  Therefore, the correct eCommerce platform is required to fulfil your business needs as well as your customer's expectations.

Key requirements for a successful online store

Mobile Friendly Website

With the majority of website visitors accessing your site from their mobile devices, it is very important to ensure a user-friendly navigation and checkout experience.

Comprehensive Product Information

The more detail you can provide on a product will help with customers leaving your site to research the product in more detail elsewhere and potentially transacting on a competitor's website instead of yours.

Enhanced Shopping Cart

A simplified checkout process is not only beneficial to the user's experience but will also build trust and convenience on your store. Being upfront with shipping costs, discounts and return policies provides transparence and trust.

Convenient Payment Methods

There are multiple payment gateways available that can give your customers the options to pay via credit card, EFT, online gateways and reward platforms. Get a reputable and trusted payment gateway provider that will handle all these transactions on your behalf.
