If you have a physical store, you are limited by the geographical area that you can service. With an ecommerce website, the whole world is your playground. Additionally, the advent of mcommerce, i.e., ecommerce on mobile devices, has dissolved every remaining limitation of geography.
Physical retail is driven by branding and relationships. In addition to these two drivers, online retail is also driven by traffic from search engines. It is not unusual for customers to follow a link in search engine results, and land up on an ecommerce website that they have never heard of. This additional source of traffic can be the tipping point for some ecommerce businesses.
One of the most tangible positives of ecommerce is the lowered cost. A part of these lowered costs could be passed on to customers in the form of discounted prices.
Ecommerce facilitates comparison shopping. There are several online services that allow customers to browse multiple ecommerce merchants and find the best prices.
Though there are physical equivalents to deals, bargains, coupons, and group buying, online shopping makes it much more convenient. For instance if a customer has a deep discount coupon for turkey at one physical store and toilet paper at another, she may find it infeasible to avail of both discounts. But the customer could do that online with a few mouse-clicks.
Store timings are now 24/7/365. Ecommerce websites can run all the time. From the merchant’s point of view, this increases the number of orders they receive. From the customer’s point of view, an “always open” store is more convenient.
Buyers and sellers of niche products can find it difficult to locate each other in the physical world. Online, it is only a matter of the customer searching for the product in a search engine. One example could be purchase of obsolete parts. Instead of trashing older equipment for lack of spares, today we can locate parts online with great ease.
Manage a dynamic product list through the back-end. Whether the shop has one product or thousands, the administrative interface of your store let’s you manage the most complex inventory easily with one-click updates. Import and export quickly, set attributes, sort products, bulk discounts, and much more. Managing products has never been easier before.
Effectively manage a large set of products with bulk uploads and updates. Easily make changes to product attributes with one click of a button or change products individually.

Product Export to eBay and More

Cross selling is offering a customer products or services related to each other. By bundling items on one page, you offer more options for customers. Cross selling increases conversion rates and demonstrates the diversity of your products.
Subtle differences can make deciding on a specific product difficult when a variety of choices are available. Comparing products, options, and features side by side removes the guess work away from the customer, and facilitates its research, improving the time, and odds of adding the selection to cart.

You probably have a variety of great photos to display to interested customers. We allow you to place as many product photos as you like. Great photos help customers make decisions and allow you to show all angles of a product. Offering numerous photos increases conversion rates and keeps customers “out of the dark.”
Displaying related products is a wonderful tool to “up-sell” customers while they browse a product’s page or during the final checkout. This feature allows you to choose which products are related and display them to your customers. For example, there may be an alternative model to a dish washer or great accessories to go with a dress, the Related Products feature will display the alternatives beneath the product description.
Wishlists are a wonderful feature that allows shoppers to create lists for future purchases. Shoppers may love a product out-of-stock or want to save an item to purchase during a special holiday. Wish lists let customers keep products saved. You can also send automated e-mails to remind customers about their wish list or send notifications that a product is now available to buy.
