There are additional issues which need to be taken into consideration when running or setting up online sales

There are still a couple of issues to keep in mind, and there are only a few people who would share this knowledge. So it is good to keep the following in mind:
First of all, operate and plan on a large scale right away – it does not make any sense to choose "small" solutions at the very beginning, because when you find that doing many things manually is too time-consuming, it will be too late to change it, and what's "small" will be slow and cumbersome. Moving to a new system may be more laborious, time consuming and expensive than investing in a long-term system from the beginning.
POS and traditional sales – of course, the Internet is growing rapidly, but it is no substitute for the method of conducting trade which has existed for thousands of years. Many products were - and still will be - bought in traditional stores or picked up in person. You need to have a tool which integrates your online store with a traditional store, and only IdoSell Shop offers that..
Automation of printing, order fulfilment and customer service together with complex offer management. Going back to the first point – you may soon not have enough time to fulfil individual orders. Opt for a system that automates and speeds up simple activities, so that you can focus on more creative tasks.
Software that keeps up with changes and offers prospects for development – IdoSell Shop platform provided with the SaaS model]. Other models – besides hiring software (SaaS) – do not work in a dynamic environment such as the Internet. Everything changes day by day. Nowadays there does not exist software that requires no updates.
Monitor your company and your employees' team work. To avoid anything out-of-place occurring at stores, IdoSell Shop provides full employee collaboration and logs a history of changes made. Thanks to numerous reports, you can fully control your company and monitor the results of your employees' work, even remotely.

  1. Integration with partners and external services is very important. IdoSell Shop provides dozens of various integrations. They are ready and waiting for you to start using them.

And perhaps most importantly – compete on quality rather than price'''. There will always be someone who offers a better price, but not necessarily the best quality. Go for loyalty programs, loyalty cards and refund handling. All these functions can be found in IdoSell Shop.
