Let’s face it, most fashion experts hear the word “tool” and go running. To them a tool is used for home maintenance or auto repair; however, in the world of eCommerce tools are actually designed to make your life easier and your customers’ shopping experiences seamless. For this reason, it is critical that whether you sell wholesale junior clothing, women’s, or plus sizes, you have a complete set of robust eCommerce tools. While there are tons of tools out there, there are three that should never be left out of your package.
- Shopping Cart: it is exactly what it sounds like. A shopping cart allows your visitors to select the wholesale missy size clothing, women’s-wear, special occasion wear — whatever they are interested in, and place it in a cart while they continue shopping. This is beneficial to the customer because it is easier than purchasing one piece at a time. It makes your life easier because the better shopping carts will allow you to see what items were ‘put back’ and tons of other useful information that can help you make your site better.
- Payment Gateway: Remember that in the world of online businesses, the security you provide your customers with is critical. Don’t risk having a wholesale plus size clothing customer make a purchase only to have their identification information stolen. Be safe – use a gateway.
- Merchant Credit Card Account: If you want to get paid, you must accept credit cards. There are several different companies that offer merchant services depending on your needs – check out their fees, terms and conditions to pick the best one. Don’t forget to ensure it is compatible with your payment gateway.
Remember that business will grow based on more than the beautiful wholesale maxi dresses and other fashion pieces you carry. You must also use the tools available to you. Build a set of eCommerce tools today to ensure your success.
