Every business needs a website and each business website needs to be able to process multiple transactions securely. A stable platform for business is required and a company with business experience is necessary to develop a reliable eCommerce website that provides an intuitive customer shopping experience.
Your customer should be able to navigate your site easily and with confidence knowing that their information is private and safe, and that they will receive their products and services once they have completed their transaction.
A website is often the face of your company and in business, you get only one chance to make a first impression. We take this responsibility very seriously and we make sure that your internet presence will convince your clients that your business is worth their time and money.
When people think of eCommerce, they think about a nice catalog-view of the store’s products, with an “Add to Cart” button that adds each product to a cart area, listing the details of the product along with a quantity, and a purchase price.
Once the customer has found what they are searching for, they then proceed to a checkout area where they enter their payment details and conclude their transaction.
If you purchase a Website Package from us, you can upgrade at anytime to an eCommerce package to fulfill any, and all of your sales needs. We will configure your software with your store information and then train you and your staff how to use it effectively. You will then have the ability to track sales orders, 24 hours/day 7 days a week from any location that has internet access including your phone or tablet!
This is only the first form of online commerce your website can perform.
We can provide several other options that may fit the needs of your business or to implement an idea that you already have but didn’t know how to deploy.
Other types of online commerce are also available:
- Membership payments
- Subscription payments
- Downloadable content such as ebooks and music
- Point of Sale and Invoice applications
- Event Sales
- Fund Raisers
- Crowdfunding Campaigns
Each of these payment structures are specific types of eCommerce, and The BrainChild Design can deploy each one of these for our customers depending on their needs.
We will build you a customized store that will give your customers a sense of privacy and security and as a business owner, you can also feel secure knowing that your customer’s information is safe.
Cost-Effective Way to Start A Business
Having an eCommerce-capable website, is the wave of the present. Anyone who has dreamed of owning their own business should start here. It is a way to start a business with a minimum output of cost and labor, and can be maintained by one or two people, until such time that your business grows and you find it necessary to hire additional employees or rent and office or store location.
We will even include a Customer Relationship Manager in your site, to track leads and sales so that you will always have your customer information at your fingertips. This includes invoicing and billing to track customer payments and overdue balances
Event commerce is truly a beautiful thing with regards to business. Imagine having the ability to know how many people are going to show up to your carefully planned event, and being able to receive money for their tickets prior to the event itself.
You can manage multiple promoters, with separate guest lists, able to track their invitees attendance, and purchases. You can also schedule recurring events years in advance and send reminders to your customers at set intervals to allow them time to plan their attendance.
In addition, you can pre-sell other items along with your event tickets. These include:
- Drink Tickets
- VIP seating
- Bottle reservations
- Online Seminars
- Booking and reservations
- Advance Tickets that depend on the date of purchase with ticket prices going up the closer to the event date.
- Other people’s events
We use a variety of software to facilitate this type of commerce depending on your needs and the structure of events that you intend to sell. We can add this to your eCommerce Website or include it as a standalone application with your Basic Website Package.
Mobile and Virtual Point of Sale Systems
Sometimes, especially in the case of an established retail store, or mobile vendor, a business owner may want to sell products while out of the office, rather than relying on their customers to go to their website to complete the transaction.
This can often be problematic because you now have to have two separate systems to process sales, keep track of inventory, and run reports, while also risking the customer leaving before the transaction is complete.
We imagined that it would be better if all of your business processes occurred in one place while you, as the business owner, could dictate when and how those sales occurred. The best place to centralize these processes would be to use your website.
- What if your website could handle all of your retail and in-store transactions?
- Why not be able to have customers make purchases while you also make direct sales wherever you are?
- Why pay for costly equipment such as a cash register and drawer when you can simply use the computer you already have?
- Why pay for costly software with licenses, to use at multiple locations, when one application can service all of your locations at once with real time updates of inventory, commissions, sales, and deliveries?
Your salesman in the field should have access to the same information that you see, so that they can make informed sales decisions, and can tailor their sales pitch to what the customer needs, while also having direct information about which products and services are available.
We use, and have created a system, that allows us to process sales from any location in the world, securely. It gives us the ability to process payments in any form whether its:
- Money Order
- Direct Bank Deposit
- Credit Card
- or Bitcoin!
We want you to be able to travel light and to have the ability, at all times, to conduct business. We can embed important business documents onto your website such as contracts and agreements, so that you will stay organized and have the ability to always keep track of your legal documents and other sales forms.
You will save time and reduce or completely eliminate your paperwork, while synchronizing all of your sales processes with your accounting program, from one place, with the click of a button!
