Custom Solutions We've Built

PRICE MATCH FUNCTIONALITY

DEGUNS

PROBLEM

Our client was concerned about losing customers to competitors who were offering the same product at a lower price point. After receiving price match requests in the past, the client asked us for a built-in feature that allowed customers to submit a price-match request.

SOLUTION

With the Price Match functionality in place, customers can easily get items for lower prices. All they have to do is enter their information and a link to the competitor’s low price. Then the admin of the website will review the information before approving or denying the price drop.

The Price Match functionality is beneficial for shoppers, because it allows them to buy the products they want at a lower price, and businesses, because it allows them to keep customers who might otherwise buy from a competitor.

SHIP TO FFL Functionality and API

DEGUNS

PROBLEM

Online firearm merchants have to navigate many federal regulations in order to sell their products legally and safely. 

One of these requirements is that firearms cannot be shipped directly to a consumer, but instead to a certified FFL (Federal Firearms License) certified dealer who acts as a third-party medium.

SOLUTION

We created the FFL functionality for online firearm dealers that need to have customer orders shipped to a local FFL. FFLs can upload their licenses and customers can select a local FFL (Federal Firearms License Holders) when placing their online order. If their local FFL license is not on file, a link can be sent to the local FFL to upload theirs to expedite order processing. This functionality saves customers and firearm vendors time and effort.

We could easily build a similar functionality for any retailer who needs to ship their products for local pick-up.

FAQ

If you are just starting out, VTEX is not the e-commerce platform for you. The platform uses an incredibly technical language you probably will not understand unless you are a large enterprise. The learning curve on VTEX is so steep, some clients have reported having to hire a team of professional developers to help them get their website on the ground.

In addition, VTEX bases its pricing on your company’s projected annual revenue, this makes it hard for companies because of their minimum price averages at about $400/mo. In order to receive your pricing, you must go through the process of gathering your financial papers and speaking to a representative to get a direct quote. VTEX is great for businesses already pulling in thousands or millions of dollars in sales that can afford to have a team of specialists work on the eCommerce platform.

In order to launch your online store to the public on VTEX, you will have to go through the process of contacting one of their specialists for a consultation about your annual profits and what you would like your e-commerce site to have. After this step, you will get a quote from the specialist and then wait for your site to go live. This process can be time-consuming but if you are in the upper mid-size to large company sector, it is worth the time.


Once your store is launched, you may encounter some issues when it comes to finding well-designed software interfaces. Hiring a team of experienced developers, designers, and programmers will save you time, effort, and money in the long run if you are working on VTEX. If you experience any problems along the way, you will have to pay for VTEX support solutions.

VTEX has a store of hundreds of responsive themes but compared to other e-commerce platforms VTEX does fail to provide a wide range of free responsive themes for their clients. Most of the VTEX designs available on the platform are made by third-party developers, this means you will have to download each theme with the third party and compare them individually. The team of skilled developers and designers at Optimum7 can create a custom made website for your company with no issues at all.
