A hosted shopping cart solution can reduce the hassle in your business.
Do it yourself shopping carts can provide you with plenty of flexibility but can be difficult to maintain as your business grows. For instance, you have to remember to keep updating your software with the latest updates to plugins or to install fixes. What if you find that an update to an essential plugin not compatible with something else in your store? Or it hasn’t been updated by the plugin’s author when it needs to be? If so, you’ll have to wait for it to be fixed or engage a private programmer to fix it. If you don’t know how something works, or need to ask a specific question you may find yourself having to trawl through support forums seeking the answer to your question and there may be conflicting opinions or answers. On top of all of this you have to keep everything secure, and then manage your business too.
Hosted ecommerce solutions like Ozcart can act like your own virtual IT manager, taking care of things like security updates behind the scenes and providing guidance to you when you run into difficulty doing something using your store or an unexpected error message. It can reduce much of the hassle of running a website, freeing you to focus on what you do best.
An Ozcart hosted solution takes care of security behind the scenes giving you the peace-of-mind to focus on the important things in your business that will generate sales like marketing your website, managing your product catalogue and communicating with your customers. Your SSL certificate will be applied site-wide, to protect your checkout security. It is provided free for the first-year.
How do you configure your site for, example, Australian or Canadian GST and exchange rate settings? No worries. Ozcart sites suit businesses with many country specific options. This saves you time and hassle.
We have the features that you need for your business to get you going quicker. Just some of these include an easy to use store administration area, drag and drop block editor, promotions, reports and much more.
Your new online store can be built in a special staging area where you can use the site for up to eight weeks as if it was live on your domain name. That way you can get the site just right on a temporary domain name before you point your domain name and replace your current website.
If your current website allows you to export customers, categories, products and image locations to a comma delimited spreadsheet file (CSV format) then you can use the spreadsheet importer to import your store data into the cart. Ask us if you’d like to see a sample of the spreadsheet file that you’ll need to use and we’d be happy to provide one to you.
We have 6-days a week support via email for the rest of the work that you do yourself, so you won’t be left to figure it out yourself. We are here and happy to help.
