tools to enhance eCommerce business

Regardless if you’re using Volusion, BigCommerce, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, VTEX, or any other eCommerce platform, if your eCommerce store isn’t doing as well as you would like, small details can help push it to become wildly successful. The right website feature, or functionality can give your customers a better experience while saving time, money and effort on your end. For example, what if you had a tool that let you integrate your login function with the customer’s Amazon information? That would help you become more accessible to the countless people who use Amazon every day.

While that is a great example of customer service, functionalities that improve performance on your end are equally important. You need tools that will let you eliminate headaches from your workflow because doing so lets you stay flexible and creative. An example of one such feature is the Avalara Avatax integration. This helps you figure out sales tax for your multiple locations, warehouses, and shipping destinations. View these features and many more below.

Login with Amazon Functionality

Get more customers for your eCommerce store by offering Login With Amazon. Offer secure and simple access to your site for Amazon’s 250 million users with this feature. Store owners can offer their customers a faster sign-in process by letting them use their Amazon account information.

When you sell your products online, sales taxes are an operational nightmare. There are 50 different sales tax percentiles for states alone. Then add counties. Then add cities. You don’t have time for it, but you have to do it. What if Optimum7 could give you a tool to make this process effortless?
