This blog was contributed by our solution provider partner Façade Interactive.
Façade Interactive is very excited to be one of the newest partners of ShipStation. We have been working with the platform for over 3 years now and we are thrilled to formalize this relationship.
We first came to learn about ShipStation when we relaunched an E-Commerce site for a fashion client in Brooklyn. On the first day, after an Instagram post and an E-Blast, they were inundated with over 100 sales! Not a bad place to be after a relaunch, right? ShipStation was the perfect tool for their fulfillment and setting it up was very easy.
Here at Façade Interactive, we have been developing websites since 1998, we have seen the industry grow exponentially and we have kept ourselves up with the times. We jumped on the WordPress bandwagon in 2008 and onto the WooCommerce train in 2012. We love these 2 platforms but have certainly worked in others such as Shopify, Drupal, Joomla, Big Commerce, OS Commerce… the list goes on.
We help small to medium sized companies, sole proprietors and startups with their website needs. We provide a website development strategy with solutions to work with all sorts of budgets and timelines. During development, we can often be found discussing User Experience (UX) with our clients and making sure we follow best practices.
Does your company or startup need an E-Commerce website?
Here is how we help you develop a development strategy. We have a discovery session and answer the following questions:
- What platform is best?
- What kind of design do you need?
- What kind of content will be needed for the site?
- How many SKUs will be uploaded?
- What plugins will you need?
- Product display plugins (Product gallery, Color Swatches, etc.)
- Payment Gateways (Authorize.net, Paypal, Amazon Payments, etc.)
- Shipping (FedEx, USPS, UPS, ShipStation, etc.)
- What kind of hosting is best for the amount of traffic?
- What kind of post-launch marketing will work best for the product?
After the site launches, we provide ongoing website maintenance and security to ensure the website is as healthy as can be. Our maintenance program includes: monthly plugin and software updates, daily off-site backups, daily malware scans, and 24/7 uptime monitoring.
We are called Façade Interactive for a very good reason: we are building your company’s digital façade! You may have the best, most beautiful products in the world, but if your digital storefront is poorly designed or developed, potential and even current customers may try to load it, shrug, and browse away without purchasing anything. Let Façade Interactive help your website or e-commerce store succeed!
