As e-commerce has grown, and gotten more competitive, a lot of different platforms and payment gateways have come to the market. But, for online retailers who need the very best, custom online ordering solutions are often the most convenient, not to mention the most cost-effective.
What makes custom online ordering solutions better for e-commerce? Here are just a few of the key benefits:
Custom online ordering solutions are faster. Faster carts and payment processing mean fewer abandoned sales. That's especially true if you have a complicated checkout procedure that could otherwise stall or confuse buyers.
You get more reliable carts and payment processing. Even worse than slow payment processing is an unreliable platform that makes buyers feel like your online store isn't safe and stable. Having your online ordering offline costs you money each and every minute, so you need a reliable answer.
Custom ordering solutions can lower your e-commerce costs. In the end, so much of e-commerce comes down to efficiency. That is, if you can handle more orders with lower per-transaction costs, you can instantly increase the profitability of your online store (and maintain that advantage over time).
Your online store gets automatic integrated inventory control. With custom online ordering, you can tie transactions to inventory, meaning better real-time information availability and fewer chargebacks.
You can take advantage of advanced shipping features. For some online retailers, shipping and fulfillment can be complicated because of multiple distribution centers or unusually packaged or weighted objects. With custom online ordering, you can build in the functionality you need.
Your e-commerce site can use special pricing models. In the same way, if you have a highly segmented customer base, or an unusual pricing structure, you might want custom controls to ensure that buyers are being charged the right amount.
Custom online ordering solutions could offer better e-commerce security. Security is a big concern for both online retailers and their customers. With custom online ordering solutions, you can make every transaction as secure as possible.
