What is needed to trade online?
Selling online can be highly lucrative, you have
a world-wide audience and are able to take orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
All you need to get up and running are 2 components:
- A web site Your website is your shop
front, here you show your offering and take the orders, setting up a
e-commerce website is extremely easy these days, you can use a product like
our SymShop that will quickly build all you require or you can be more adventurous
and build your own unique site using a product like easyGen which will allow
you to build a dynamic selling web site that gives you sales reports and
information bespoke to your requirements.
- Online Merchant Account and Secure Payment
Server you then need the ability to take payments, with our merchant
services you not only get your own merchant account so transactions from
your web site will show up in your name on the customers card statement but
you also get a secure payment server. The payment server is fully
customisable so it blends in with the look and feel of your own web site and
is bank compliant with a 128 bit security certificate so your customers can
buy online in confidence knowing their details are secure.
Also if you use SymShop, SymCart or easyGen as
your shopping solution with our merchant services your orders can be databased,
which means you can import the information in to an accounts package or create
mailing labels and so forth.
